Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller had a 77-yard run early in Sunday's game against the Falcons and finished with a season-high 149 rushing yards and a touchdown on 15 carries.
Insight: Coming off the Week 12 bye, Spiller may finally be fully healthy after playing through an ankle sprain for several weeks. He's back on the RB2 radar, though he's best used as a flex play given his boom-or-bust nature.

Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller (ankle) said he feels like he's getting back to his "old self" after the bye week. "I feel good," said Spiller Wednesday. "I definitely feel like I’m getting back to my old self, making the cuts, making that explosion, so just looking forward to seeing how Sunday goes." SOURCE: buffalobills.com
Insight: We heard Spiller say something similar after running for 116 yards on 12 carries in Week 9, but he managed just 29 yards on 21 carries over the last two games. He has a good matchup Sunday against the Falcons, but shouldn't be trusted as anything more than a flex play.
 
11/17/2013 5:37:00 PM
Description: The Bills made the effort to get C.J. Spiller more involved Sunday against the Jets, but he failed to take advantage.
Insight: Spiller led Buffalo with 13 carries but managed a measly six yards rushing. He had one fantasy point due to his 10 receiving yards. Hopefully he'll come out of the bye week 100 percent healthy and ready to make a difference in the final five games, but we aren't hopeful.

Description: Bills coach Doug Marrone said that running back C.J. Spiller's lack of playing time in Week 10 "doesn't have anything to do with his ankle," according to Joe Buscaglia of WGR550.
Insight: After sitting out Week 8 to heal his ankle sprain, Spiller rushed for 116 yards on 12 carries in Week 9 against the Chiefs. Marrone removed him from the injury report entirely going into Week 10 and indicated he was excited to get him more touches. However, he saw just 11 against Pittsburgh Sunday. He'll be a boom-or-bust RB2 going forward.
 
11/7/2013 7:04:00 PM
Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller said he is "very close" to being where he wants to be with his ankle injury, according to WGR550.com.
Insight: After sitting out Week 8 to heal his ankle sprain, Spiller rushed for 116 yards on 12 carries in Week 9 against the Chiefs. Bills coach Doug Marrone removed him from the injury report entirely going into Week 10. With Spiller expected to see an increase in touches Sunday against the Steelers, fantasy owners can confidently start him for the first time since Week 4.
 
11/6/2013 3:46:00 PM
Description: Buffalo head coach Doug Marrone expects to give running back C.J. Spiller even more touches this week against the Steelers. SOURCE: Joe Buscaglia, WGR 550
Insight: Spiller's ankle injury is no longer an issue as evidenced by his breakout game last week versus Kansas City (12 rushes for 116 yards). Spiller and his backfield mate Fred Jackson will both be worth starting this week against a Pittsburgh defense that let up 55 points Sunday at New England.
 
11/3/2013 5:30:00 PM
Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller looked rejuvenated Sunday against the Chiefs after sitting out Week 8 to heal his ankle sprain.
Insight: Spiller was still sporting a limp, but he was able to cut effectively and galloped for 116 rushing yards on 12 carries. He added 39 receiving yards on two catches. Fantasy owners now have to hope his ankle responds from the expanded workload. If it does, he could be in for an explosive second half of the season.
 
11/3/2013 12:12:00 PM
Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller is active for Week 9
Insight: The return of Spiller will certainly help the Bills as they face the undefeated Chiefs, but having to split carries with Fred Jackson makes Spiller a flex option, at best, for Week 9.
 
10/31/2013 2:18:00 PM
Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller still hasn't been a full participant in practice, but coach Doug Marrone appears confident that he'll be ready to play on Sunday.
Insight: The return of Spiller would certainly help the Bills as they face the undefeated Chiefs. The combination of a tough KC run defense and having to split carries with Fred Jackson makes Spiller a flex option at best for Week 9.
 
10/28/2013 6:33:00 PM
Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller has a high ankle sprain, coach Doug Marrone revealed on Monday. SOURCE: WGR550.com
Insight: Marrone said he will wait to provide an update on Spiller's availability for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, but it doesn't look good at this point. Fred Jackson only had 45 yards on 15 carries Sunday against the Saints, making it four straight games in which he averaged 3.5 ypc or lower, but he scored his sixth touchdown of the season.

Description: As expected, Bills running back C.J. Spiller (ankle) won't be available Sunday versus the Saints. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL.com
Insight: If you have Fred Jackson in your lineup, please come to the window and collect your fantasy points. With Spiller in street clothes, F-Jax should be in for a monster game Sunday at the Superdome.
 
10/25/2013 12:12:00 PM
Description: Bills RB C.J. Spiller missed another day of practice and is unlikely to be ready for Sunday's game.
Insight: His ankle has been bothering him for weeks. Spiller's absence makes backfield mate Fred Jackson a legitimate RB1 for Week 8 (if he wasn't already).
 
10/24/2013 7:39:00 PM
Description: Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 in Buffalo reports that Bills RB C.J. Spiller is unlikely to play this week against the Saints.
Insight: His ankle has been bothering him for weeks. Spiller's absence makes backfield mate Fred Jackson a legitimate RB1 for Week 8 (if he wasn't already).
 
10/24/2013 2:07:00 PM
Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller (ankle) did not practice Thursday.
Insight: Spiller has been playing through the injury, but not well. He needs to get healthy. Fantasy owners should not play him in Week 8, and perhaps the Bills shouldn't either.
 
10/20/2013 5:39:00 PM
Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller (ankle) had just six carries for 11 yards Sunday against the Dolphins.
Insight: Spiller also caught three balls for -4 yards. The running back is clearly ailing from his ankle sprain and the Bills are keeping him on a limited snap count. Fantasy owners should not play him in Week 8, and perhaps the Bills shouldn't either.
 
10/18/2013 1:40:00 PM
Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller (ankle) was on the practice again Friday.
Insight: Coach Doug Marrone confirmed on Friday monring that Spiller would be on the field Sunday. However, the team has been content to let Spiller and Fred Jackson split carries and that should continue.
 
10/17/2013 2:21:00 PM
Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday's session.
Insight: Spiller has played two games since suffering an ankle sprain so we doubt he'll miss Sunday's contest against the Dolphins. However, the team has been content to let Spiller and Fred Jackson split carries and that should continue.
 
10/16/2013 7:01:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN.com, Bills running back C.J. Spiller (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.
Insight: Spiller has played two games since suffering an ankle sprain so we doubt he'll miss Sunday's contest against the Dolphins. However, the team has been content to let Spiller and Fred Jackson split carries.
 
10/13/2013 10:47:00 AM
Description: Though no official announcement has been made, it looks like Buffalo halfback C.J. Spiller should be good to go Sunday versus Cincinnati. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL.com
Insight: Spiller has been battling an ankle issue for a few weeks but it hasn't caused him to miss any games and we're guessing that trend will continue on Sunday. Spiller started the year as the Bills' lead back but has since been demoted to a timeshare with veteran Fred Jackson. With the unproven Thad Lewis at quarterback, there should be enough carries to go around.
 
10/9/2013 3:13:00 PM
Description: Bills running back C.J. Spiller (ankle) is practicing Wednesday, though with a slight limp, according to Bills' reporter Joe Buscaglia.
Insight: Spiller is getting healthier, but even at 100 percent he'll share the backfield with Fred Jackson who has outgained Spiller by a 462-325 yardage margin.
