Early struggles, injuries make for busy running back waiver market
Picking fantasy running backs seems to get harder every year. There are so few every-down feature backs, many fantasy analysts advised heavier reliance on drafting wide receivers and a quarterback in the early rounds this year.
It's still true, however, that a good running back who puts up consistent numbers can lead your team to the fantasy championship. And with quite a few starting running backs disappointing already -- Jamaal Charles, Chris Johnson -- the rush to the waiver wire to find one is going to be crowded this week.
In Week 2, several running backs were injured or benched; a bunch of fill-ins had good games. Are any worth picking up? Let's take a look.
