C.J. Spiller said his ankle has been "responding pretty well" since the season ended.
"Being able to plant and cut so I definitely feel that explosion coming back to how I was in 2012," Spiller said. Spiller is training out in California and has been joined by teammate E.J. Manuel this week. The two are working on some things and getting "some timing down." Spiller sounds as if he's still not 100 percent over his high-ankle sprain but should be there in plenty of time for training camp. The Bills need to get more creative with Spiller in 2014. If he can touch the ball 12-15 times per game, Spiller will be a huge bounce-back candidate.

Spiller was mere inches away from breaking it off for a long touchdown. He and Fred Jackson split time pretty evenly. Spiller will be a boom-or-bust RB2 next week against the Dolphins. You simply can't leave his game-breaking legs on your bench.

Speaking Wednesday, C.J. Spiller said he "definitely" feels like he's "getting back to my old self."
Spiller was held to six yards on 13 carries by the Jets' elite run defense prior to the Week 12 bye. That disaster is firmly in the rearview mirror as his ankle should be near 100 percent and the Bills face the Falcons' No. 28 run defense this week. "I feel good," Spiller said. "I definitely feel like I'm getting back to my old self, making the cuts, making that explosion." Our Patrick Daugherty has ranked Spiller 24th and Fred Jackson 20th among running backs this week.

C.J. Spiller was held to six yards on 13 carries and two catches for ten yards in the Bills' Week 11 win over the Jets.
If there was one positive takeaway we saw in Spiller's performance, it's that his ankle now appears legitimately healthy. The Jets' defense simply deserves a major hat tip for keeping him bottled up throughout the game. Spiller didn't limp after his touches; he just couldn't get any running room on the perimeter, where he frequently tried to bounce, as usual. The Bills now have a Week 12 bye. Spiller has a very favorable fantasy playoffs schedule thereafter, where he will continue to be a boom-or-bust RB2/flex play.
