Saints reached agreement with former Bills RB CJ Spiller.

Update: The deal is for four years and $18 million, with $9 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is not an ideal landing spot from a fantasy standpoint. Not only is Spiller's upside capped by the presence of Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson, but he limits Ingram's upside as well. He'll likely take over the role of Pierre Thomas, who averaged 11.6 touches per game over the last two seasons. Thomas finished with a top 30 PPG (PPR) in six of the last seven seasons, so that's a reasonable target for Spiller. In short, he has upside in this offense, but his workload will be limited in a committee.
