Buffalo News - [Full Article]

Buffalo Bills running back/wide receiver C.J. Spiller had a season-high in last week's game against the New York Giants. Not in yards, but plays.

Spiller was on the field for 35 snaps, by unofficial count, by far his most this season. He figures to get that many or more snaps at least the next several weeks as he fills in at wideout due to injuries.

Spiller's move to receiver was precipitated by the injury to starting receiver Donald Jones, out four to six weeks with an ankle sprain. Jones said he's healing fast. The Bills figure to need Spiller to see extended action at receiver at least the next two games and maybe more.

Fantasy Impact: 

Spiller has fallen off the face of the fantasy earth due to Fred Jackson's incredible season, but increased playing time, even if it's at receiver, could allow him to resurface as a flex option in weeks eight and nine, which feature plenty of teams on bye.
