As some losing teams begin inevitably looking toward next year, who is one young player you expect to emerge in a big way over the second half of the season?
C.J. Spiller seems to be the best choice as Buffalo has nothing to lose (excuse the pun Bill fans). To-date he has just 39 carries and 18 receptions, it is now or never to see what the 9th pick of the 2010 draft can do. The only problem appears to be his pass blocking. But with Fred Jackson not looking like himself, I am betting on resurgence by Spiller in the second half no matter what the consequences.
