Both Fred and CJ are excellent recievers I dont know why they cant both be out there at the same time, almost every play.
But nevermind that. the 3-0 stat does mean something... on the flip side, the Bills are 1-6 when he doesn't start.
The reason this 3-0 statistic means something?
In those 3 games, the entire Buffalo Bills team looked and felt different. Had a different rhythm, the defense fed off the momentum that Spiller and the offense created. Things were much more in sync. Opponents defense was much more on edge and there is a constant explosive element on offense that does not exist nearly as much when Freddy is on the field (so it makes a lot of sense that you let Fred take over inside the 20 when it's time to get physical with a defense winded from trying to chase down CJ)
And yes, they were 3 below average teams, however, you can find some below average teams in the other 7 games we played.
3-0 vs 1-6 is not a coincidence.

The reasoning (record) may be wrong, but the statement sure is right. CJ should be getting more touches when fred is hurt. Fred is a good back, but CJ is simply better. That being said, fred should get the majority of red zone/short yardage touches, simply because that is the best part of his game. Behind the 20 should be CJ all day.
That "constant explosive element" which apparently according to you was only present in the games he started and not in the games he just played in, resulted in the Bills scoring 78 big points, an average of 26 big points against the #15, #21 and #23 defenses in football, scoring less than the average that that defense generally allowed in two of the three games.
Kansas City averages allowing 28.4 PPG, and our offense scored 28 (Leodis ran back a punt for the extra seven we scored). The Fins average allowing 20.5 and we pulled off a massive 19 and Cleveland averages allowing 23.4 and we pulled way over that with 24 big points. Yeah, our offense was freakily productive, what with all the constant explosive element.
Right, it's not a coincidence, it's what happens when you play four extremely good teams in the seven games you lose.
I called every one of those games before the season, except the Tennessee loss, and I'm sure half the board did the same. This season has unfolded almost exactly the way it was pretty much always going to, regardless of who started.
I think its clear that when CJ is in the game he brings a sense of wonder to this offense. I love the way Freddie is patient and uses his blockers more than CJ, but CJ brings something Freddie can never bring, a home run threat. Chan please keep CJ at 20-25 touches per game, its clear the team can control the clock and if he continues to average over 6 yds per carry he can lead a team down the field quickly with just running the ball.
right feed him the carries and make him full time starter
Don't get hit
