Bills RB C.J. Spiller will 'have to take a big part of the load'

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey told reporters that running back Tashard Choice @tchoice23 is not likely to get many carries with RB Fred Jackson @Fred22Jackson out for the remainder of the season. "We're going to get the opportunity here in the next few weeks for [Spiller] to get it a lot and we won't have what I term two great backs," Gailey said. "I think Tashard is a very good back, but to me he's not in Fred's category. So there won't be a lot of sharing of duties. C.J. will have to take a big part of the load now."

Fantasy Analysis:

Although he only has 944 rushing yards, there is no ignoring C.J. Spiller @CJSPILLER's 6.6 yards per carry. He has 11 runs of 20-plus yards, second in the NFL and only behind Minnesota's Adrian Peterson. Add Spiller's 34 receptions for 354 yards and have a fringe RB1 who may only touch the ball 12 to 15 times per games. Now that Jackson is out, Spiller is a must-start each and every week. Given Gailey's statements about Choice, he is not worth an add off the waiver wire.
