I'll say yes, i've been plugging Spiller all off season but with Norv calling the plays and his history with rb's, a better team and qb, his size as a true workhorse who also catches the ball....it very well could end up being close, but the 'safer' call is TRich.

Sooo tough, SOS for rb has Buffalo at around 7th easiest and Cleveland the 24TH easiest. So Spiller has the easier sked on paper. Lack of qb play right now could cause teams to stack 8 in the box to stop spiller. Its so close 51/49 TRich bc he is really the only one there. And f jackson may get goal lines

This is a very close one. If this is for a keeper, I think I would side with Richardson. But for one season, I like Spiller and think he is set for a big year, especially if Manuel comes back healthy and can provide a little more solid play at QB.
For me it's Spiller and it's not even close. The only thing I question about Spiller is his durability, but Richardson is no poster boy of health either, so that issue is even. Richardson is a very good running back who if he stays healthy will have a very good career in the NFL and be a solid fantasy RB for years to come. C.J Spiller imo is above that, he's not just very good, he's a very rare talent and that's the difference between the two. To put it another way if Spiller can avoid some kind of career ending injury, imo, he will end up in the HOF, I do not see that type of talent in Richardson, The Hall of very good maybe if there was such a thing. If Spiller plays 16 games I think he could very easily be the fantasy MVP.
EDIT: by the way the guy offering you the trade agrees with me, otherwise he wouldn't have offered you the trade. Don't let him steal Spiller from you.
