FJax is likely to become the change of pace back (Spiller looks to miss only 1 week), and is still 30 and injury prone. At least CJ is going to get all/most of the carries, and he dd have a couple good games late last season. I'd hold out if I were you.
Heck, Bush & Rich are both better starts than FJax from here on out, but CJ COULD wake up and end up your #1. FJax just doesn't have that opportunity with a healthy Spiller.
Agree with this. CJ's problem seems to be apathy and effort, not talent. That's pretty much the bad news and the good news. With how Spiller has played with Jackson out, it seems like it would take a longer term Spiller injury for you to even think about playing Jackson over your other RBs.
Sure, CJ might continue to suck all year, but in the final 9 games of last season, he had 3 games where he was over 150 yards from scrimmage, and 3 more where he was around 109-110 yards from scrimmage. That's still not the consistency you drafted him for in the 1st round this year, but that's not the kind of potential you drop for a guy who is at best in a timeshare with one of the most dynamic backs to start this season who is currently no.1 overall in fantasy scoring for RBs (Spiller).
