Bills starting to use Spiller, F-Jax in same formations

WGR 550 - [Full Article]

An idea that has been brought up time and time again by media and fans alike, the Bills showed off a few different looks that had both Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller on the field. Predictably, Jackson was the man in the backfield while Spiller was the more athletic type that was motioned to different parts of the formation. If they can develop that and create a lot of side plays for either player based on those looks, that will be putting two of their better playmakers on the field at one time. The goal should be to continually keep a defense guessing, and a formation like that along with Sammy Watkins on the field among other options should theoretically do the trick.

Fantasy Impact: 

One of our major reservations with Spiller is that the coaching staff isn't sure how to use him. It's encouraging that they are trying to get two of their best offensive players on the field at the same time. Both players can catch the ball so there's some potential there.
