WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

C.J. Spiller | Free Agent RB

The Chiefs cut C.J. Spiller for a fourth time.

Charcandrick West (concussion) is set to return in Week 8, so the Chiefs have let go of Spiller again. It's difficult not to feel for Spiller, so hopefully he can stick around somewhere soon. On the bright side, it's pretty much a lock the Chiefs would bring Spiller right back if another injury were to occur in the backfield.

C.J. Spiller gets two carries in Chiefs' loss.

After being signed earlier this week and with Charcandrick West (concussion) inactive, Spiller got some third-down work over Akeem Hunt; but rookie Kareem Hunt (22 touches) handled most of the work in the backfield. Spiller carried twice for no yards, and it's not lock he stays with the team when West is healthy.

C.J. Spiller signed with the Chiefs.

This is the fourth time Spiller has signed with Kansas City this year, so hopefully the Chiefs keep him on the roster for good this go around. The Chiefs are on a short week, though, so perhaps they wanted someone familiar with the playbook for Thursday night.

The Chiefs released RB C.J. Spiller.

This is the third time Kansas City is releasing Spiller and it's probably the last, as the team is bringing up Akeem Hunt from the practice squad. The 30-year-old will probably receive interest from other teams at some point, and it's possibly the Chiefs bring him back if they have an injury at running back this season.

The Chiefs re-signed running back C.J. Spiller.

The team officially put Eric Berry on Injured Reserve and brought back Spiller after cutting him hours before Thursday night's season opener against New England. Spiller was cut twice in the last several days, but he should stick around longer this time. It's unlikely he provided much fantasy value with Kareem Hunt as the clear workhorse in Kansas City's backfield though.

The Chiefs released RB C.J. Spiller.

This comes about six hours before the team's season opener, so it's surprising. There's a chance the Chiefs decide to bring Spiller back at some point, but for now it'll be Charcandrick West as the primary backup to Kareem Hunt. Recently-signed practice squad player Akeem Hunt is on the practice squad and will likely get moved up to the 53-man roster.

C.J. Spiller carries three times for ten yards in Chiefs' third preseason game.

Spiller also added a three-yard reception in the exhibition against Seattle. In a situation you just don't want to see, starting running back Spencer Ware was carted off with injury. Spiller's roster spot should be locked up, given Ware's injury likely to keep him out for a few weeks at least. Spiller has a chance to be the number two running back behind rookie Kareem Hunt to open the season.

C.J. Spiller looks good in exhibition against the Bengals.

The veteran running back had six carries for 27 yards and one reception for 16 yards. It appears Spiller might have been ahead of Charcandrick West, but West had seven carries for 113 yards in the game. It's possible they both make the team, but Spiller and West could be battling for one roster spot.

C.J. Spiller | Free Agent RB

C.J. Spiller plays late into preseason game with the Chiefs.

Spiller had two carries for nine yards and one reception for two yards. He was in the game in the fourth quarter, which is probably bad news for him making the final roster, though the Chiefs have talked about how Spiller still has his speed. With Spencer Ware and Kareem Hunt as roster locks, it might come down to Spiller or Charcandrick West for the third running back spot in Kansas City.

C.J. Spiller | Free Agent RB

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed C.J. Spiller.

This is a really good fit for Spiller. Andy Reid will know how to use him, but there's not guarantee he will make the team. Although, most people thought that Sean Payton would be able to get something out of Spiller also.

Jets waive C.J. Spiller.

Spiller has been cut a few times this season. He's not quite the dynamic playmaker he used to be, but someone should give him another chance on their roster.

C.J. Spiller | Free Agent RB

C.J. Spiller gets three touches in Week 13.

He actually got more touches than Bilal Powell in the game. Spiller had two carries for five yards and one catch for seven yards. Spiller is not a good fantasy option right now.

C.J. Spiller | Free Agent RB

Ryan Fitzpatrick missed a wide open C.J. Spiller on his only target of the game in Week 12.

There was a C.J. Spiller sighting! And the underthrow could have been worth quite a few points as Fitzpatrick found him running two strides ahead of the defender but threw it short enough for the defender to impact the play enough that Spiller did not come up with it. Spiller is not on the fantasy radar.

C.J. Spiller | Free Agent RB

C.J. Spiller gets one touch against the Rams.

He had one carry for four yards. Despite being reunited with OC Chan Gailey, Spiller likely won't make an impact for the Jets as long as Forte and Powell are healthy. He should not be on your fantasy roster.
