Bills RB C.J. Spiller barely played versus Bengals

The Buffalo Bills opted to only give running back C.J. Spiller @CJSPILLER 19 snaps out of 70 against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. He used that playing time to rush 10 times for 55 yards. Spiller continues to play on a bad ankle which has cut into his snaps and hurt his overall play.

Fantasy Analysis:

Spiller is actually so good that he's still averaging 4.2 yards per carry on 84 rushes this year, but he's never really been 100-percent this year. Before the ankle, it was a quad and before that a knee. Some guys seem to be too fast for their own good. Spiller's rest of season ranking is outside the Top 15. Fred Jackson @Fred22Jackson is having a very nice year and he's going to be a part of the offense all season long. This really hurts any big-time potential for Spiller, even if he gets fully healthy.

Draft day, pick 6, I'm staring at Spiller and Charles. I choose.....poorly.

He was clearly in pain after every run. I was wondering why he was being played at all, since it looked like a struggle for him. Might as well try and get him healthy.

Try Spiller, D. Wilson, R. Cobb, then Amendola. Sucks to be me.

How about this one--- Spiller, Julio, David Wilson, Vereen, McFadden. I REALLY screwed the pooch this year. FML.

Yeah, I had first pick Spiller, than Julio....not great. Luckily I drafted FJax and he's been my best RB....sorta sad.
