From Bleacher Report:

In a perfect world, I see Spiller taking on more of a LeSean McCoy role in the offense than a Reggie Bush-type role. If Johnny White plays lights out, he can help provide a solid back-up and eventual replacement for Fred Jackson when his Bills days are over.

There are also plenty of reasons for optimism. Spiller is no stranger to adversity; after averaging 7.3. yards per carry as a freshman at Clemson, he had some down years as a sophomore and a junior, and we all can pretty much recall his senior campaign that propelled him into the top 10 picks in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Another reason to be excited is the fact that a guy who he compares favorably to LeSean McCoy more than doubled his production as he got more familiar with the league. I think this will be the year that we some significant growth in C.J.'s game.
