Bills RB C.J. Spiller will return kickoffs

C.J. Spiller @CJSPILLER will be the Bills' leading kickoff returner this season, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
"As much as we can get our playmakers out there, whether it be punt returns or kickoff returns, we have to make sure we explore that," Marrone said.
The coach added that he does not believe kickoff returners are inherently more injury-prone. Spiller averaged 28 yards per kickoff return during his college years at Clemson. He returned one kick this preseason against Pittsburgh for 42 yards.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's hard to see Spiller owners getting excited about this development, except those playing in leagues that give points for return yardage. Despite Marrone's comments to the contrary, returning kicks is a dangerous job. The Bills say they want to give Spiller 20 touches per game, but it's hard not to question the manner in which they plan to do it. Spiller's ranked as FFToolbox's 14th RB this week and is a solid start as an RB2.
