Fantasy owners who spent their first round pick on C.J. Spiller have been extremely let down this season. The athletic running back has been battling injuries all season, more specifically his sore ankle.
An NFL source announced that the chances of Spiller playing this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints are “extremely slim.” The beleaguered running back has been questionable all week long and is now extremely unlikely to play.
So far this season, Spiller has rushed for only 362 yards and only one rushing touchdown. This lack of productivity has led to the revitalization of Fred Jackson, who told media he will play against New Orleans.
It’s probably to late to trade Spiller, but dumping may not be the right move either. If you drafted Spiller in the first round, you probably have to play the hand you were dealt.
