Week 2 Running Back news and notes
- Chris Johnson drops not because of his matchup, but because of his horrible Week 1 performance. For a guy who was considered a boom or bust pick, he’s looking like a big bust for the 2012 Fantasy Football season.
-MJD didn’t look particularly good in week 1, but with Jennings possibly missing week 2, he has to be considered a high-end RB2 on touches. In todays NFL, workload outweighs rust.
-Stevan Ridley’s big game propels him into the top 20. He is still in a passing offense, but one that will be running out the clock plenty.
-Fred Jackson being out makes CJ Spiller a low-end RB1, who had one of his best games ever against the Jets on Sunday. If he’s on your waiver, pounce on him whether or not you need a running back. He should have a lot of trade value soon.
