C.J. Spiller is active for Buffalo's Week 4 matchup with the Ravens. Spiller was a full participant all week in practice, and his quad injury that forced him out of last week's game doesn't appear to be a hindrance.
The Bills are facing one of the best run defenses in the league. Baltimore is allowing 74.7 rushing yards per game, which ranks fourth overall in the NFL this season.
Fantasy impact: While initial reports indicated Spiller hurt his knee, owners were fortunate to find out it wasn't anything serious. Spiller won't be limited today against the Ravens, unless his coaches decide to continue feeding Fred Jackson the ball.
Jackson looked good last week facing the Jets. He rushed for 72 yards on seven carries, and he's averaging 5.3 yards per carry in 2013. Spiller was projected as one of the league's top scorers prior to the season, but owners have been disappointed with his showing so far. He's still in the RB2 range for Week 4 despite the tough matchup.
