Last year, Spiller was the most efficient running back in the league on a per-play basis, according to Football Outsiders' DVOA ratings. Our metrics ranked him third in total rushing value behind only Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch. Spiller is also excellent as a receiver: He ranked among the top 10 backs in receiving value last year, and has an above-average receiving DVOA in each of his three seasons.
