C.J. Spiller has plenty of optimism as 2014 approaches


When we open the floor for questions on PFT Live, at least one per week deals with the prospects of the Bills for 2014 generally and the chances of rookie receiver Sammy Watkins making a big impact as a rookie specifically.

Bills running back C.J. Spiller provided glowing (predictable, but glowing nonetheless) assessments on both counts during a Tuesday visit to PFT Live.

Spiller sees the team improving offensively, with quarterback EJ Manuel developing and Watkins showing great potential and the team in position to make a run at the postseason.

It won’t be easy. Every other team in the AFC East was .500 or better in 2013.

Spiller addressed various other topics, including his desire to stay in Buffalo after his contract expires in March, reports that receiver Mike Williams has struggled in OTAs, the impact of the departure of receiver Stevie Johnson, and the absence of any distraction to the team resulting from the recent arrests of defensive lineman Marcell Dareus and the lingering uncertainty about the looming change in team ownership.

    He’s on the Bills … who wouldn’t be optimistic with their history of success. Or he’s high.

    Spiller should really try to trademark “CJ 750” before Chis Johnson snatches it up.

    He was supposed to be one of the top five RBs last year. Now he’s “full of optimism”. Freddy will still lead the way running the ball

    Thanks for the note CJ – still not taking you in fantasy unless it’s round 5+

    You guys do realize he was running on one leg the entire year last year? Played through ankle injury all season.

    Rawdog–I would draft Bruce Smith, pray that he comes out of retirement, and then keep my fingers crossed that the coaching staff utilizes him on offense near the goal line before I’d draft CJ Spiller again.

    If they sweep the Dolphins again, I’ll consider the season a success.

    That 19-0 game was awesome.

    How bad do you have to be to not score at all?
