Doug Marrone and Nate Hackett will institute an up-tempo offensive in Buffalo this season. That means more plays and more touches for the offensive skill-position players, mostly feature back C.J. Spiller.
In a dynasty PPR league, you can't draft Spiller early enough.
Remember, Hackett said he plans to give Spiller the ball "until he throws up," via The Buffalo News. A season with 2,000 all-purpose yards is not out of the question. Spiller finished with 1,703 yards from scrimmage on a mere 250 touches in 2012.
For first-round pick EJ Manuel, the offensive attack will likely feature a variety of high-percentage, easy-read throws with a mix of deep balls off play action. Hackett won't over-complicate things for his young quarterback.
Fred Jackson may not be as elusive as he was two years ago, but the versatile runner will be used to keep Spiller fresh throughout the year.
With an influx of young receiving talent, there's a thought that Steve Johnson may not be as fantasy-viable in 2013. While it's true that Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin and Co. will take some targets away from him, Johnson working out of the slot frequently is a scary development for opposing cornerbacks.
The up-tempo system will increase the volume for all of Buffalo's offensive weapons.
