C.J. Spiller was bolted up again—this time by a rugged Jets run defense—and left with a thigh injury Sunday.

Last but most definitely not least, C.J. Spiller's fantasy owners should be thanking fate for turning what was believed to be a knee injury into a mere thigh issue, according to BuffaloBills.com's Chris Brown.
"I'm a little sore, but it shouldn’t be nothing that'll keep me out this week," Spiller told the team's official website Monday morning. "I should be feeling better, day by day, but just taking it slow. Just a little sore right now."
It is not like Spiller's fantasy owners would be missing much. He has been a huge reason for their slow start.
Fred Jackson outperformed Spiller again Sunday with 72 yards rushing and 37 receiving (four catches). Jackson is a must-add in fantasy regardless of Spiller's injury severity and the difficulty of the Week 4 matchup against the Ravens run defense, which has been top five in fantasy against running backs to date.
Spiller will start and you have to keep him active because of the premium investment you put in the breakaway back. Jackson is a must-have handcuff, although starting him against the Ravens is not likely to be real beneficial for your fantasy production.
