The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller isn’t a guarantee to make the Saints opening day roster. The six-year veteran played his first five seasons with the Buffalo Bills and signed with the Saints last off-season. Despite many predictions that the Saints would use Spiller the same way they used Reggie Bush and Darren Sproles, Spiller was rarely used. In fact, when starting RB Mark Ingram was sidelined for the season, the Saints handed the starting job to RB Tim Hightower, who was signed much later than Spiller. Ingram and Hightower are clearly one and two on the depth chart at this point. (Source: New Orleans Times-Picayune)

Fantasy Impact: Many people forget, but Spiller’s last relevant fantasy season was 2012. Since then, Spiller has done nothing but disappoint. Regardless of where he ends up, I would consider Spiller undraftable, even in the deepest leagues.

Spiller is a very talented football player, but his role corners him to the point where he isn't fantasy relevant. He might get a touchdown here or there, but he is too far buried on the Saints list for carries to ever get enough yards to be worth starting. If a player is never worth starting, he is never worth owning. Move along.

The Saints kept Spiller and believe he was never truly healthy last season. The fact that they didn't let him go after his non-season does give me some hope for him. The offense is set up for his ability, but he just needs to stay healthy and get on the field.
