Bills' OC: C.J. Spiller needs the ball more
by Larry Hartstein |

Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said running back C.J. Spiller needs more touches. The comment came in response to a question about Spiller's yards per catch declining from 10.7 in 2012 to 5.6 last year.

"We just have to give him the ball more," Hackett said. "When you look at any situation when you have a player like C.J., you want to get him out there a whole bunch. You want to throw him the ball, you want to hand him the ball off and that’s one thing that we have to do. He’s a great player and we have to feature him just like we have to feature a lot of guys.

"It’s about getting more plays, getting more opportunities to get him out there, keeping the quarterback in there consistent and making sure we have a guy in there that knows what we want to do and keep him in there. We want to be able to distribute the ball across the field."

La Canfora: C.J. Spiller could be dealt from Buffalo
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported from Buffalo that in the event another team comes calling for a running back, the Bills would consider moving C.J. Spiller in a deal. The speedster is in the final year of his contract and talks about an extension have not gone well. 

"I anticipate Fred Jackson being a Bill for life, and he could end up with a few new years on his deal, and the speed of Bryce Brown is impressive. Anthony Dixon supplies depth," La Canfora wrote. "A trade market for Spiller could well develop over the next month."

Bills hope to give C.J. Spiller 20 touches per game
by Larry Hartstein |

The Bills' official website says C.J. Spiller remains the "bell cow" among the top four running backs and notes Spiller "is healthy again and back to his elusive and explosive self." If the offense operates at peak efficiency, Spiller is likely to receive 20 touches per game, the website says.

Offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said the presence of Fred Jackson, Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon enables the team to move Spiller around and use him as a receiver.

"You could put him all over the place," Hackett said. "When you’re healthy and you have depth at that position, you have the ability to do a lot of different things with running backs, especially with someone as dynamic as C.J."

C.J. Spiller back to 'cutting on a dime'
by Larry Hartstein |

Running back C.J. Spiller was one of the Bills' most impressive performers at OTAs, according to the team's website. "Seeing Spiller fully healthy would’ve been enough for most, but just to see the dynamic weapon that he is coming out of the backfield and in space is still fun to watch even now in his fifth NFL season," the report said.

"Bobbing and weaving through would-be tacklers and back to cutting on a dime, the offensive coaches seem eager to expand the ways in which he’ll be used on the field this fall."

Spiller's ankle hampered him throughout the 2013 season, though he missed just one game.

Report: Bills won't extend C.J. Spiller until after the year
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Bills' official team website believes that both the organization and running back C.J. Spiller want to let the 2014 season play out before negotiating a contract extension. Spiller is entering the last year of his contract and wants to stay with the team for the long haul but the coaching staff could be on the hot seat if they don't push for the playoffs this year. 

The site is also encouraged by offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett's plans to use Spiller in a number of ways.
