NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora has the latest on the trade talk surrounding Chargers holdout Vincent Jackson, plus the chances rookie C.J. Spiller will start for the Bills in Week 1.
Apparently the Bills can see what the rest of us can see because Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Bills will select rookie RB C.J. Spiller as the team’s running back on Wednesday.
After watching about a half hour’s worth of the final week of preseason, some truths have surfaced in such a short time.
Bills RB C.J. Spiller and Chargers RB Ryan Mathews were the top two running backs taken in the 2010 NFL Draft. But who should be the first to come off your fantasy draft board? Mathews has been given the most love in fantasy circles, but NFL Network’s Warren Sapp and Michael Lombardi kick around this subject on NFL Total Access.
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 is set to tote the Samsonite, but Spiller should be the one toting the ball for the Bills.
Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno pronounced himself 80 percent ready for the upcoming season, leaving fantasy enthusiasts to scratch their heads and say, “What do we do now?”
Bills RB C.J. Spiller had a slow start, racking up negative yards in the early going. But you have to credit the Bills for trying to get the ball into the hands of their playmaker.

Here is all you need to know about C.J. Spiller — he is a playmaker.

Do not have a fantasy football draft in August. Or at least until after the third preseason game at the very earliest. Forgive me if I attempt to beat you over the head with his notion for the rest of the summer, but I feel pretty strongly about this.
Maybe the Bills knew what they were doing when they took C.J. Spiller with the ninth overall selection in the 2010 NFL Draft. The crowded Bills backfield thinned out on Friday night as Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch left the game with injuries.
