C.J. Spiller was going late in fantasy football drafts because of Fred Jackson's presence in the backfield. Spiller did a solid job filling in for Jackson last season, but he was still going to be the backup whenever Jackson returned.
Well, fantasy football owners, Jackson's return was short-lived.
In his first game back, Jackson went down with an injury in the first half, and it looks like he is going to miss a significant amount of time.
Spiller ended up having the best game of his career, finishing with 169 rushing yards and a touchdown. Spiller is going to be one of the best PPR running backs in fantasy leagues.
He is one of the most versatile players in the NFL, whether he is getting carries out of the backfield or lining up as a wide receiver.
I would not expect Spiller to run for over 160 yards every week, but with his ability to run and catch the ball, he has a great chance of recording 150 total yards each game.
