Lynch, Jackson return; but Spiller has to be the man

RBs Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson have returned to practice for the Bills, which is great because somebody needs to carry C.J. Spiller‘s bags. Normally the rookie has to tote the Samsonite, but Spiller should be the one toting the ball for the Bills.

Lynch and Jackson are nice players, but they are not Spiller. The evidence during the preseason is overwhelming.

Bills coach Chan Gailey has been coy about who will start for the Bills. Good for him. No use giving the rookie a big head. But Gailey’s claims of being undecided about choosing his running backs seems about as convincing as the guy holding the first pick in your fantasy draft trying to convince you that he is thinking about picking Clinton Portis first overall.

This might be a large assumption, but Gailey presumably wants to win this year. Spiller gives him that best chance because as he has proven, he can score at any time. So feel confident taking Spiller in your drafts because he is going to produce.
