Source: C.J. Spiller to be used more at receiver

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

With Bills wideout Roscoe Parrish lost for the season, running back C.J. Spiller is expected to be used more and more as a receiver, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

It’s already a given that Spiller will serve as the team’s primary punt returner.

Though Spiller gained 63 yards on only four carries against the Raiders, Fred Jackson has become the team’s workhorse. He leads the NFL in rushing, with 229 yards.

Fantasy Impact: 

This makes sense given the injuries to Roscoe Parrish and Marcus Easley, which came on the heels of the team's decision to part ways with Lee Evans. If true, Spiller's enhanced role would no doubt increase his value, especially in PPR leagues. Owners shouldn't go crazy trying to acquire him, but if he's available on the waiver wire or as a throw-in as part of a trade, there is some potential here.
