St. Louis Rams
Through two weeks of the NFL season we’ve seen guys like C.J. Spiller out perform Chris Johnson and rookie sensation RGIII outscore last years MVP Aaron Rodgers. What this tells us is that it’s early in the season and we have a long way to go for things to fall into place. But week to week things change and match ups make line ups. Some may be sitting Adrian Peterson against the 49ers on Sunday even though he’s one of the best running backs in the game. So let’s take a look at Sunday’s schedule and I’ll tell you who to start and sit.
Rams: Start – Daryl Richardson & Defense. Sit – Bradford & Amendola vs. Bears: Start – Michael Bush & B. Marshall. Sit – Jay Cutler
Bills: Start – St. Johnson & Bills defense. Sit – C.J. Spiller & S. Chandler vs. Browns: Start – Their defense & T. Richardson. Sit – Greg Little
Bucs: Start – D. Martin & V. Jackson. Sit – Bucs Defense & J. Freeman vs. Cowboys: Start – Romo, Austin & Witten. Sit – Dallas defense & D. Murray
Jaguars: Start – Jones-Drew & Blaine Gabbert. Sit – Jags Defense & M. Lewis vs. Colts: Start – Luck, Wayne & Brown. Sit – Colts Defense & Donnie Avery

Spiller, who has impressed the past...
Bills running back C.J. Spiller has left Sunday's game against the Browns with an injured left shoulder.
The NFL's leading rusher was hurt as he was tackled following a 25-yard gain on a short pass up the middle. Spiller stayed on the ground for several minutes before he was helped to his feet. He grasped his left arm as he walked off before being carted to the locker room...

It was a weird feeling and situation throughout Buffalo on Sunday afternoon.
The Bills won their first road game since week one of 2011 by defeating the Cleveland Browns 24-14 on a rainy day in Cleveland, however the loss they suffered early on seemed much worse than any W or L on the record.
After picking up about 20 yards on a screen play...
I know, it’s Cleveland hosting Buffalo; not exactly a recipe for excitement.Admit it, both these teams have been just terrible the last five years.Sure, in 2007 the 10-6 Browns were first in the AFC North, the same year Buffalo took second in the AFC East (though with a slightly less impressive 7-9 record), but conditions were near blizzard level when they met that year, resulting...
Injured Bills halfback C.J. Spiller will not return to Sunday's game against the Browns according to the team's official Twitter page. He left in the first quarter after sustaining a shoulder injury.Fantasy Spin:Tashard Choice will be in charge of the running game with Spiller sidelined. It will be interesting to see if Buffalo opts to air the ball out more without their...
By Joe FellCold, Hard Football Facts Ice Man(@clevelandjoe)This week's Icy Issue deals with the Buffalo Bills' running back situation.For several seasons, Fred Jackson has been one of the NFL’s best feel-good stories. Few undrafted Division III players ever have the opportunity to play in the NFL, let alone rush for over 900 yards in three straight seasons. Nevertheless...
Cleveland Browns vs Buffalo Bills
September 23, 2012
Last week Brandon and Trent give us some reason to hope. Let's see if they do the same thing at home.
The dreaded 0-3 start is unavoidable with CJ Spiller...
“He’s been Pipp’d.”
That is what sports fans say whenever a player loses his starting job after suffering an injury and watches his replacement step in and permanently take his job. It was first coined back in 1925 after the man himself, Wally Pipp. he was the first baseman for the New York Yankees, but either asked out of or was sat for a game and replaced by Lou Gehrig...
Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three touchdown passes and the Buffalo Bills overcame the loss of running back C.J. Spiller to beat the Cleveland Browns 24-14 on Sunday, snapping an eight-game road losing streak.
Fitzpatrick finished 22 of 35 for 208 yards as the Bills (2-1) turned to their passing game after Spiller, the NFL's leading rusher, was lost in the first quarter with a shoulder...
In two polarizing weeks, Ryan Fitzpatrick, C.J. Spiller and the Buffalo Bills showed fans a full range of possibilities. They sat back and allowed the New York Jets to pummel them, then dished that treatment out in kind to the Kansas City Chiefs. It’s safe to say the real Buffalo Bills fall somewhere in the middle of all that. If so, then it’s tough to argue this team is perfect...
Well, that was a roller coaster. Here's how Twitter saw it...
1st Quarter- 14-0 already? We are going to kill them.
2nd Quarter- CJ Spiller is hurt. Season is over! Typical Buffalo!
3rd Quarter- Browns are down by 3. It is over! Fitz stinks. I hate Tashard Choice. Where is the pass rush?
4th Quarter- Bills score. Browns are really bad. Wait! Choice has...

Quick, name the top player in all of fantasy football at the non-quarterback position in PPR leagues?
If you guessed it was a guy that grabbed by yours truly in the mid to later stages of your drafts, then give yourself a pat on the back.
C.J. Spiller has gone bonkers in his last seven games (going back to final three from last year) totaling for 7 TD and...
Chris: 24-14, Cleveland- My hometown versus my college town. I remember when the Browns came back to the NFL that I had a soft spot for them and even thought of adopting them as my second team. Then I went to school in Cleveland, learned that Cleveland sports fans give Buffalo's a run for their relative sporting IQ and the rest is history. The Browns offense was anemic...
