Saints Reportedly Release Running Back C.J. Spiller

September 13th, 2016

The New Orleans Saints have reportedly moved on from high-priced free agent running back C.J. Spiller. He was inactive for the team's season-opening loss to the Oakland Raiders and quickly fell out of favor after signing a four-year, $16 million deal in March of 2015. 

With Spiller now on the outs in New Orleans, the expectation has to be that Mark Ingram will continue to be a three-down back for the Saints. That's huge for his fantasy value.
