Spiller rushed once for four yards and returned three kickoffs for 59 yards during Sunday's 9-6 loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Spiller is firmly planted behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell on the depth chart, and as long as those two are healthy, his fantasy upside is extremely limited.

Spiller will sign with the Jets, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Spiller has been in talks with the Jets but recently gave them a definitive "yes." He will give New York depth at running back behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell, but given the duo's heavy touch share, it is unlikely that Spiller will see significant action in the Jets offense, barring injuries.

Spiller was released by the Seahawks on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Spiller signed with Seattle back in September after rookie C.J. Prosise suffered a broken hand in Week 1, but only accrued 52 yards of total offense across two appearances. With Prosise now back in action and Thomas Rawls (fibula) nearing a return, Spiller was evidently deemed expendable in order to bring back FB Will Tukuafu.

Spiller is inactive for Sunday's contest at Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

The Seahawks have exercised caution with the recovery of C.J. Prosise from a broken hand, but with the rookie back in action Sunday, Spiller will hand off his pass-catching role out of the backfield. Moving forward, Spiller could be a regular member of the inactive list on game day.

Spiller had four touches for 35 yards in a win against the Falcons on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Spiller's main role is in the passing game, as he caught three of six targets for 38 yards. He played about a quarter of the offensive snaps. When C.J. Prosise gets healthy, it wouldn't be surprising if Spiller was released.

Spiller gained 12 yards on two carries and caught two of three targets for 5 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-17 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Spiller made his Seahawks debut despite being signed just a few days ago, and while he played a very limited role Sunday, he was able to help the team with an eight-yard touchdown reception to get them on the board in the second quarter. Spiller will take the upcoming bye week to get acquainted with the offense, and he could ease into an increased role for as long as Thomas Rawls (ankle) remains sidelined.

Spiller is listed as active Sunday versus the Jets in New York, Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Inked to a contract Wednesday, Spiller and Alex Collins will serve as Christine Michael's backups with both Thomas Rawls (fibula) and C.J. Prosise (wrist/hand) out of commission. Spiller is expected to handle the pass-catching reps that Prosise has been unable to this season.

Spiller, who signed with the Seahawks on Wednesday, will be used in a third-down passing role, the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

C.J. Prosise was supposed to fill that role, but he's playing with a broken bone in his wrist that is expected to take six weeks to heal. Thomas Rawls will be out a few more weeks with a hairline fracture in his shin, leaving Christine Michael as the starter. Rookie Alex Collins is more of a between-the-tackles runner, so he'll back up Michael with Spiller then the pass-catcher out of the backfield.

The Seahawks signed Spiller on Wednesday, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since the Saints released Spiller following inactive status in the season opener, a number of teams have brought the veteran running back in for a workout. The Seahawks are lacking in depth at the moment due to Thomas Rawls' injured fibula and C.J. Prosise's hand ailment, which could allow Spiller to serve as Christine Michael's direct backup Sunday against the Jets in New York. At the very least, a pass-catching role appears likely for Spiller.

Spiller will workout for the Jets on Tuesday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

EDGE Analysis

This wouldn't be a good landing spot for Spiller to re-establish fantasy utility, as the Jets already have two talented pass-catchers, Matt Forte and Bilal Powell, leading the way in their backfield. The other New York team would actually be a better fit, with Shane Vereen (triceps) facing an extended absence. Spiller wasn't signed after visiting with the Packers last week.
