As we inch toward the new season, the ever-changing NFL landscape has player fantasy values constantly on the move. Whether you’re used to the dynasty platform or are still learning the dynasty rules, let’s dive into the latest dynasty value of Los Angeles Chargers RB Isaiah Spiller.
Isaiah Spiller’s Dynasty Outlook and Value
I really wonder what the perception would’ve been on Isaiah Spiller if his last name wasn’t the same as former NFL star C.J. Spiller (the two aren’t related). At one point, Spiller was considered potentially the best prospect in the 2022 running back class. That went completely out the window when he ran a 4.64 40-time at his pro day.
Spiller completely bombed his athletic testing, posting measurables that suggest he doesn’t belong in the NFL. The list of running backs that look like Spiller who have gone on to be even moderately successful in the NFL is basically Arian Foster. Spiller is not Arian Foster.

Spiller fell all the way to the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, many dynasty managers couldn’t avoid taking a shot. All the evidence pointed to Spiller not being a fantasy-relevant player. Yet, he was being taken in the early-to-mid-second round of dynasty rookie drafts.
As a rookie, Spiller couldn’t beat out Joshua Kelley or Sony Michel and was the Chargers’ RB4. Spiller finished the season with just 18 carries, which he turned into a paltry 41 yards.
Isaiah Spiller’s Fantasy Ranking
This season, Spiller will be just 22 years old. He has a lot of time to improve and work his way into a productive role.
With that said, I was out on Spiller after his pro day, and he did nothing as a rookie to make me change my opinion. The door isn’t slammed shut for me, but it’s just about closed.
We have Spiller at RB53 (No. 170 overall) in our dynasty Superflex rankings. That’s way, way higher than where I would take him in dynasty startup drafts.
I would be very surprised if Spiller ever mattered in fantasy. If you have him, I would trade him for whatever you can get.
