Fred and C.J. play time pretty balanced

On the home page of we profiled how Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller have found their rhythm in the run game despite splitting time in Buffalo’s offensive backfield. Their touches per game have been relatively even, and it looks like their snap count per game average is pretty close to even as well.

According to Pro Football Focus, Spiller has 209 snaps through what has been essentially six games, knowing he missed most of the Cleveland game. Jackson has had 154 snaps through the four games he’s played, knowing he missed most of the Jets game and the two that followed after that.

So Jackson’s snaps per game come out to 38.5 per game and Spiller’s snaps are 34.8 per game. Knowing only a handful of their snaps overlap with them on the field at the same time, it’s a pretty good balancing act by Buffalo’s offensive staff.
