Bills HC Chan Gailey has preached to both RBs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller that the focus needs to be on team success, not personal workload.
“I can promise you this, we will not make everybody happy,” said Gailey. “That will not happen this year. The only thing that will make everybody happy is winning. That’s what the goal is, to come up with plans that incorporate everybody’s abilities that allow us to win. Other than that I can’t predict what’s going to happen as far as percentages for their touches.”
This is not an attractive situation due to the price of obtaining both players in the draft. In standard scoring formats, Jackson is our #21 RB and has an ADP in the 3rd round, while Spiller is ranked #30 and is going in the 6th round. Gailey's comments certainly indicate that neither player is going to be happy with his touches and that means fantasy owners probably won't be happy either. Proceed with caution.
