"I was able to plant and cut and accelerate like I really wanted to before I got hurt," Clemson running back C.J. Spiller said. "Whenever that happens during the week, that's always a good sign for me."  Spiller has been suffering from a lingering turf toe injury most of the season.

Spiller sounds healthy and confident; a dangerous combo for a guy with his speed.  Spiller will look to add to his 2211 all-purpose yards this Saturday in the ACC Championship game against Georgia Tech.

Clemson running back C.J. Spiller has been named ACC player of the year.

Spiller leads the ACC in all purpose yards with 2211, making him more than deserving of the award. However, it is hard to ignore Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams' 1538 yards rushing and 20 touchdowns (one receiving).  Williams took home ACC Rookie of the Year honors.

Clemson running back C.J. Spiller is in the top five of just about every major Heisman poll.

Spiller will get a chance to add to his resume this weekend against Virginia.  Favorite Mark Ingram is taking on Chattanooga and there is a possibility that he could see more time hanging out with the cheerleaders than time on the field.

Clemson running back and Heisman candidate C.J. Spiller scored just about every way possible in the Tigers 43-23 win over North Carolina State. Spiller rushed 18 times for 97 yards and a score, caught three passes for 48 yards and a touchdown, and even completed a 17 yard pass to Xavier Dye for a score.

Spiller is still visibly ailing from his turf toe injury and not quite 100%, but apparently a C.J. Spiller at even 80% is more than opposing defenses can handle.

Running back C.J. Spiller has been dealing with a turf toe injury since the first game of the season, but it hasn't slowed him down much as Spiller is averaging 199.8 all-purpose yards per game.

Spiller's fantasy production can be streaky at times, but he's been hot, which eases some of the concern of starting him this week against North Carolina State.

Playing the shadow of C.J. Spiller, Clemson running back Andre Ellington is quietly putting together a nice year.  With 335 yards on just 45 carries, Ellington is averaging 7.4 yards per carry.

Spiller is set to graduate this year leaving Ellington and the powerful Jamie Harper in the backfield.  The two will form a very good 1-2 punch for the Tigers in 2010.

As he noticeably battled through the turf toe injury that has plagued him most of the season, Clemson running back C.J. Spiller set a career-high mark of 165 yards rushing in the Tigers win over Florida State which was capped with a five-yard touchdown run and a "mini" Heisman pose.

Spiller also caught a 58 yard touchdown pass which gave him his 20th career scoring play of 50 or more yards, and broke his own school record for all-purpose yards set two weeks ago against Miami (310) with 312. Maybe this Clemson Tiger back is deserving of at least a "mini" Heisman pose.

The State reports that Clemson running back C.J. Spiller's toe is feeling better than it has all season.

Spiller will look to continue his solid play against Florida State this week, and he appears a good starting option. However past owners of Spiller know how hit or miss his production can be.

Paul Strelow of The State openly wonders why Clemson running back C.J. Spiller was not used more in Saturday's win over Miami.  Spiller finished the day with 23 touches for 303 all-purpose yards and two scores.  One a 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

Sounds like Spiller was utilized just fine to me.  He's never going to be a 25-carry a game guy.  And after ripping off 303 total yards, even Spiller needs a rest.  Sterlow also notes that Spiller wore a protective walking boot to protect his lingering turf toe injury, like he has after a number of games this season.

Clemson running back C.J. Spiller tallied a school record 310 all-purpose yards in the Tigers overtime upset of Miami. Spiller rushed 14 times for 81 yards, caught six passes for 104 yards and a touchdown, and had 125 kick return yards which included a 90 yard return for a score.

The numbers for Spiller may not be as inflated as some of the other contenders, but there truly isn't another player like him in college football.

Clemson running back C.J. Spiller led the charge to put the Tigers back in the ACC Atlantic race with a win over Wake Forest by rushing for 102 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries. Spiller scored on runs of 14 and 66 yards.

After a rough start to the season for Spiller and the Tigers, this is the kind of game fantasy owners have been hoping for out of this senior superstar. The concerning thing that came from this game, however, is Wake Forest avoiding C.J. Spiller on punts and kickoffs; hopefully this doesn't become a trend.

Clemson running back C.J. Spiller appeared to aggravate his turf toe injury after after a 92-yard kickoff for a touchdown.  

Spiller was wearing a walking boot but dodged questions about the injury after the game.

Clemson running back C.J. Spiller, who was hampered by a toe injury in practice, obviously felt no pain against TCU as he almost single-handily beat the Horned Frogs. Spiller led the Tigers in rushing with 26 carries for 112 yards and a touchdown, and receiving with three catches for 79 yards.

It's no secret Spiller is Mr. Everything for the Tigers, and the swiss cheese Maryland defense should provide him plenty of holes to run through next week so look for a repeat performance.

Clemson running back C.J. Spiller was limited in practice Monday with a toe injury, but coach Dabo Swinney expects him to be ready against TCU on Saturday.  

A bad toe and a stingy run defense aren't exactly the makings of a big fantasy week.  Spiller has no rushing and only one receiving touchdown in three games.
