Fantasy Football - New Orleans Saints C.J. Spiller Out Week 1

The New Orleans Saints will start the NFL season without RB C.J. Spiller, who signed a 4 year $18 mil deal this offseason.  This leaves Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson in the Saints backfield when they take the field Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals on the road.  Ingram caught 29 of his 35 targets last season, and Robinson was a non factor in the pass attack.

Without Spiller, Drew Brees will focus his targets towards Brandin Cooks, Marques Colston, Brandon Coleman and his tight ends Ben Watson and Josh Hill.

It will be interesting to see how they handle the Red Zone without Jimmy Graham.  Ingram owners would love some ground and pound but Spiller could play an Ahmad Bradshaw type role this season.
