Although Spiller said his ankle, which has given him trouble all season, was fine after Sunday's loss to Atlanta, he was noticeably limping at times and also took himself out of the game on occasion to have the ankle looked at, The Buffalo News reports. Said coach Doug Marrone: "He goes in there and makes the big run and gets nicked up. Starts limping a little bit, and gets himself back in there."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It sounds like the ankle won't be 100 percent until after the season, while at least we can say Spiller ran very well Sunday and easily put up his best game of the campaign. That said, it's troubling that it still continues to nag Spiller to such a degree, even after the bye week. Perhaps he'll have that extra burst we saw Sunday for the rest of the season, but it also sounds like we won't see Spiller at 100 percent until 2014.
Spiller ran 15 times for 149 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. He also caught two passes on four targets for just eight yards.

2013

2012

Spiller didn’t receive double-digit carries in any of the first 24 games of his career, but when Fred Jackson went down with a season-ending injury in Week 11, Spiller responded surprisingly well. Over the final six games, he totaled 633 yards with five touchdowns. Spiller also improved greatly as a blocker, proved to be a major threat as a receiver and got 5.2 YPC while holding up just fine with a bigger workload. He’s capable of finishing as a top-10 fantasy back in 2012, were he given the opportunity. However, even while missing the final six games, Jackson was graded by Pro Football Focus as the league’s No. 1 running back last season. There’s going to be serious competition in Buffalo’s backfield, likely resulting in a committee that stifles both players' value to some degree when you compare it to their excellent skill sets.

2011

It would be foolish to write off last year’s ninth overall pick completely, but Spiller fumbled five times on just 74 rushing attempts and struggled mightily in pass protection. Failing to gain any trust among Buffalo’s coaching staff, Spiller didn’t receive double-digit carries in a single game. After scoring 21 touchdowns from 50-plus yards during his collegiate career, Spiller produced just two plays that went for 20-plus yards as a rookie. At his season-ending press conference, coach Chan Gailey referred to Spiller as a “Reggie Bush type back,” which is not an endorsement of Spiller’s ability to log heavy carries. This is Fred Jackson’s backfield in Buffalo.

2010

Spiller ran for 1,212 yards on a career-high 216 carries and added 503 receiving yards and four scores through the air during his final season at Clemson. There’s no doubting Spiller’s explosive ability – his 4.37 40 was the second fastest at the Combine and 21 of his 52 touchdowns at Clemson were from more than 50 yards out. However, he averaged just 151.5 rushing attempts during his four years at Clemson, and while it was impressive he was able to play through a painful toe injury that required frequent injections during his senior year, Spiller’s durability is in question. Marshawn Lynch is a candidate to be traded, but Fred Jackson is still the favorite to lead Buffalo in carries, and this is a team with a bad quarterback situation and an offensive line in even worse shape. The Bills envision Spiller getting about a dozen carries per game, and he’ll likely add 3-4 catches as well, but don’t expect much action at the goal line. Spiller is a special talent, so he could produce good yardage despite failing to total 250 touches, but he’s locked in a timeshare on a bad offense, limiting his upside for 2010. The long-term prognosis looks very good, however.
