I can't help it, the promise of C.J. Spiller being a top 5 pick in 2013 is inside of me and I can't shake it loose. It might seem crazy to rank Spiller this high but do you remember how bad the Bears defense was last season?
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Bears should be better on D but were dreadful against run last year. Spiller lacks TD value but should see the ball a lot. Upside is key.
I'm not a believer the Bolts suddenly leave him out of the plans after an awesome 2013. He should be active in this one, although matchup isn't good on paper.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bears run defense was horrible last year, Spiller has a good chance to break some big runs in the opener.
I think Woodhead has the best chance to put up numbers on the Cardinals, because they are incredibly good at stopping the run. Woodhead in the passing game may be their best bet when it comes to involving their running backs.
