Fantasy Football Week 2: Latest CJ Spiller Stock Report
Spiller is the hottest running back in fantasy football, and his production does not seem close to ending any time soon. Jackson is set to return in three to five weeks, but it is doubtful he will steal many carries from the surging Spiller.
While his stock is soaring, let's take a look at how to handle the suddenly star running back.
Determining Spiller's Value
Spiller has absolutely shined while being the focal point of the offense. Against the New York Jets, he only received 14 carries but racked up 169 yards and a touchdown.
In Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs, Spiller only received 15 carries, but added another 123 yards and two touchdowns to his totals.
For those keeping track, that's 292 yards and three touchdowns on only 29 carries in two games. He is a legitimate No. 1 fantasy back as long as he can stay healthy.
Even with Jackson returning soon, Spiller is now the man when it comes to the running game for the Bills.
Buy or Sell?
Spiller is on fire right now, but he does not have a great track record so far in the NFL or in fantasy football. So the question is, should you try to trade for Spiller, or sell him while he is hot?
By now it is a safe bet Spiller is owned in most leagues, so picking him up on waivers is not an option. Trading for him may be an option, though.
If you are hurting for a legitimate No. 1 or No. 2 running back, trading for Spiller may be a viable option, especially if someone in your league is in a selling mood. It's a risky proposition, but a risk worth taking if you find yourself in a hole.
If you happen to own Spiller for some reason, unloading him at his highest point right now is a great strategy. In return you could ask for several viable players from a needy team.
Either way, Spiller is going to be an active player on the move in most fantasy leagues, but whether the buyer or seller is correct remains to be seen.
Spiller is a keeper in most leagues as long as Jackson does not return and begin to steal carries from him. A safe move may be unloading him right now while his stock is the highest, but keeping him is not a horrible gamble either.
Right now, Spiller has the best stock in the NFL, with no real end in sight. Take advantage of that, but know when to abandon ship.
