Spiller to run ‘until he throws up': While a different turn of phrase might have been easier on the stomach (especially if you’re reading this over breakfast), the idea behind it should excite fantasy owners. In an age where running back committees are all the rage, the thought that the Bills want to ride C.J. Spiller is a refreshing one. This won’t change the idea of Fred Jackson as a handcuff, but it means you can likely wait even later before snagging Jackson in your draft. On the flipside, you might not be able to wait as long before pulling the trigger on Spiller in 2013.
Ivory not likely to play vs. Lions: The nagging hamstring injury that has kept Chris Ivory out of practice is likely to keep him out of the Jets first preseason game against the Detroit Lions on Friday. The hope is that he’ll be available for Gang Green’s second outing against the Jaguars on August 17. But for now, it looks like the injury bug that has hampered Ivory throughout his career could conspire to hamper his fantasy value this season.
Tannehill continues to struggle: After a lackluster preseason debut, it would have been reassuring to hear good things about Ryan Tannehill in Dolphins practice. This won’t reassure you. Tannehill reportedly continues to struggle in workouts, tossing three interceptions (and nearly a fourth) in Tuesday’s workout. It’s still early, but for anyone who expected the second-year QB to take a step forward, it is a little concerning. Considering the rest of Miami’s quarterback depth chart (Matt Moore, Pat Devlin), Tannehill will have a pretty long leash. However, he’s eventually going to have to step up or drop the sleeper designation.
