C.J. Spiller might be the most dynamic running back in the entire 2010 rookie class, but the situation he enters in Buffalo hurts his fantasy value.
The team already has Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch on their roster, so Spiller will be fighting for carries in what appears to be an imminent backfield committee.
What’s more, the team has a questionable offensive line and virtually no passing game to speak of with Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick or Brian Brohm under center. The release of Terrell Owens also leaves them with only Lee Evans as a legitimate threat in the offense.
Of course, there is an increased chance that the Bills could deal Lynch in the next 48 hours. If that happens, Spiller would be an explosive complement to Jackson in a two-headed backfield.
Whatever happens, Jackson’s stock has taken a severe blow.
