Buffalo has flirted with a few backs this season, but I view that as more an intention to replace Fred Jackson (long term) than I do to take opportunities from Spiller.
David Wilson's good health, coupled with rumours of a 3 back rotation does not bode well for Jennings in 2014.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Spiller is a freak but due to health issues his role will have to change. That doesn't mean he's suddenly a scrub, though.
He's 29 and has an injury history, but he's looked pretty good over the past year. I'll take him as a RB2, but not much more.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
I'm still a huge believer in C.J. and hopefully this is the year he pays off for his owners. But Fred Jackson is lurking and still proved to be a valuable player on the field.
Jennings signed a long-term deal with the Giants and could easily be the starting tailback once the season gets underway.
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
Huge injury concerns, lots of upside outside of the top 30 overall. Is the risk built into the investment? Probably.
The runner looks fantastic so far this preseason. If he stays healthy, he could have a very underrated season, and I'm talking high-end RB2 type season.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
A high-risk, high-reward pick. I'm willing to make a substantial bet on his talent.
In for a big role, but sketchy O-line is a concern, may not get goal-line work.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Unfortunately, looking at another season of F-Jax stealing goal-line and passing down work
Just 2.9 YPC in W1, but delivered 96 YFS, TD (50 rec yds); W/ Eli's pass struggles, Jennings likely to stay busy as receiver
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He didn't find the end-zone enough last year and has been battling with injuries. He has incredible upside if you are willing to gamble but make sure you have some back-up options.
He is not a dynasty option at his age, but he should see a number of touches in NY as well as catches making him a nice PPR option. With Wilson out of the picture the only concern is losing goal line carries to Williams.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Is doomed to share with Jackson forever, and will not be in goal line packages.
Giants will deploy RBBC with or without Wilson in pads.

Legion Report
Spiller admitted that there’s a big difference in the teams running game with a year of experience under their belt in the new offensive running scheme. With this being said, Bills coaches want Spiller to touch the ball 20 times this season. They said the same last year – they wanted him to run until he got sick. With a deep backfield, we don’t see this being too realistic. There are two things that limited Spiller’s production last season. The first, E.J. Manuel. Manuel struggled mightily last season in every aspect of being an NFL QB. This resulted in the Bills running the ball, a league high 546 times while defenses continued to pack it in. Secondly, Spiller was playing hurt a majority of the season while the Bills continued to throw him in between tackles. That’s not Spiller’s game. He succeeds off of screens, pitches, etc. The Bills need to establish the passing game for a now healthy Spiller to create space in order for him to be more effective.
Jennings at the age of 29 will be the New York Giants “workhorse” in 2014. Jennings doesn’t have any tread on his tires as he’s only carried the ball 388 times in his NFL career. What we love most about Jennings is that he plays in the NFC East, so he’ll be playing the Cowboys and Redskins twice. Last season the Dallas Cowboys gave up an average of 23.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs (Ranked last in the NFL against Fantasy RBs.) The Washington Redskins gave up an average of 20.1 Fantasy points per game to opposing RBs (Ranked 4th to last in the NFL against Fantasy RBs.) Their schedule outside of this is fairly tough, so expect some inconsistency out of Jennings this season, although his ability to catch the ball will help temper this as well as their very bad Offensive Line. With this being said the NYG’s are looking to implement a 3-Man RB rotation in order to keep Jennings fresh for the entire season. This will most likely be a rotation with recently cleared David Wilson and 0% agile goal line rookie runner Andre Williams.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Spiller is too good to let slip far on draft day, but he doesn't come without plenty of risk. The offense is a run first offense and Spiller is the lead back. He has the ability to take over a game and put up huge numbers, but also has the ability to tweak something and play hurt for a few weeks.
Jennings will be the lead back for the Giants and will get plenty of receptions and carries. He may lose some goal line work to Andre Williams, but that's the nature of the NFL now. He's still a safe pick this late in the draft.

Usage won't be as high as you want it to, and will likely lose out on a handful of touchdowns to Fred Jackson.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
I am becoming less of a fan of the Buffalo coaching staff. They have one of the most explosive players in the NFL, but they refuse to give him the ball in space and they seem fascinated with Fred Jackson, Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon. Spiller has the most talent of the running backs on this team, but he is misused on a weekly basis.
Jennings did well in limited action with the Oakland Raiders, rushing 163 times for 733 yards and six rushing touchdowns. He also added 26 receptions for 292 yards. Jennings is the back to own in NY, but keep an eye on rookie Andre Williams.
  
Raju Byfield

CJ Spiller has ton of talent but does not seem capable of being a feature back and will compete for snaps with the ageless Fred Jackson and Bryce Brown who was brought in from Philly. Spiller has more value in PPR formats as the Bills will attempt to utilize Spiller is space to play to his strengths.
Rashad Jennings is in line to be the starter in New York but has to contend with impressive rookie Andre Williams for snaps. Jennings should start the season as the lead back and should be the third down back throughout the season but Williams looks much better as a pure runner and the Giants will transition to Williams once he works on his pass protection.
