Bills RBs C.J. Spiller a 'long shot' & Fred Jackson questionable

The Buffalo Bills' official website noted that running back C.J. Spiller @CJSPILLER is a long shot to play on Sunday against the New England Patriots. No. 2 back Fred Jackson @Fred22Jackson also experienced some minor swelling after a light practice. "I'm just taking it day by day," Spiller said Wednesday. The site also noted that Spiller is more likely return in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers. Should Spiller and Jackson be unable to play, Tashard Choice @tchoice23 would be the team's primary ball-carrier. Spiller is currently listed as doubtful and F-Jax is questionable.

Fantasy Analysis:

Spiller has been electric this year after an incredible finish to the 2011 season. After treading water for his first two seasons, the dynamic back formerly from Clemson has carved a niche as a potential superstar when the ball is in his hands. Choice is a solid back and should be on a roster in every league format. Unfortunately, throughout his career, Choice has been more of a grinder. The type of player that can grind out 70 yards on 15 carries and little else. If you only need a warm body that will go uncontested for carries, Choice will do.
