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?
I truly believe that Fred Jackson will be a top 30 back again this season. Maybe not the top 15 back he was in 2013 but still very startable in deeper leagues and as an every week flex.

The Bears run defense was horrible last year, Spiller has a good chance to break some big runs in the opener.

CHI was the 2nd worst run D in terms of fantasy points given allowed to running backs. With few improvements along that front in the offseason, fire up Fred and CJ.
