Spiller signed a contract with the Chiefs on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Though he's just 29 years old, the former No. 9 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft has settled into the journeyman phase of his career since his breakout 2012 campaign with the Bills, during which he picked up a career-high 1,244 yards on 6.0 yards per carry. Following his exit from Buffalo after the 2014 season, Spiller has had abbreviated stints with the Saints, Seahawks and Jets, finding little success at any stop. The Chiefs will likely bring Spiller to training camp with the hope that he can still offer some value as a third-down back or returner, but even if he's able to win a spot on the 53-man roster, he likely won't see enough touches to approach fantasy relevance in most leagues.

Spiller was waived by the Jets on Tuesday, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Spiller was signed by the Jets a little over a month ago, but failed to make an impact in the offense, rushing the ball three times and recording one reception in four games. The veteran will now look to join his fourth team this season as the Jets will rely on Matt Forte and Bilal Powell to close out the year.

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.
