2015 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Jul-14-2015 by Shawn Childs

After his breakthrough season in 2012 (1,703 combined yards with eight scores and 43 catches), C.J. has been a bust in back-to-back seasons. Last year, Spiller missed seven games due to broken collarbone. Prior his injury, he had taken 83 touches for just 394 yards with one touchdown. His resume is far from elite and his poor play will lead to him being a value pick in drafts. His high upside was showcased by his 6.0 yards per carry and 10.7 yards per catch in 2012. The Saints completed 133 passes to the RB position last year for 938 yards and four TDs. At a minimum, C.J. should be able to catch 50 percent of that action. He could mirror what Darren Sproles did for the Saints in 2011 and 2012 (161 catches in 29 games for 1,377 yards and 14 scores). Spiller will also be more active in the running game with a chance at 125 carries. Between the rushes and the catches, I expect him to average 7.0 yards per touch. He could total 1,400 yards on 200-plus touches and tally eight touchdowns. That could make him a low-end RB1. His price point is fair in the early draft season (ADP of 56, 22nd RB selected). Spiller has risk for sure, but his impact upside makes it worth taking him as your RB2 in PPR leagues.
