Bills committee will vex fantasy owners

Fred Jackson proved last season he's too good to be left on the bench.

The Buffalo Bills didn't draft C.J. Spiller in the first round to watch him sit.

Marshawn Lynch rushed for 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons in the NFL and hasn't totally forgotten how to play.

Dealing with the dreaded running-backs-by-committee approach has become a fact of life in fantasy football, but more perplexing is the triple threat. That's especially true when all three backs are in (or set to enter) the prime of their careers, and the major reason why Mike Harmon of Fox Sports has the Bills ranked first in his list of running back committees.

As Harmon points out, Spiller is rising in mock draft charts, but I would be very hesitant to take him with a top draft choice. Even if he does earn the starting job, it likely won't come until the middle of the season, more than halfway through the fantasy campaign.

Draft position will be key when rolling the dice with a Buffalo runner in this year's draft. What's your take, who should go first?
