Week 2 Running Back Blues
If you drafted one of the top-flight running backs on draft day, you may be a bit disappointed by their production through the first two weeks of the NFL regular season. Guys like LaDanian Tomlinson, Larry Johnson, Maurice Jones-Drew, Reggie Bush or Deuce McAllister have had fairly low production as compared to the Willie Parkers, Edgerin James, and Joseph Addais. But fear not Fantasy Football fans, for these stud backs will get back on track and lead your fantasy teams back onto the road to the fantasy playoffs. If you look to their stats from last year each of these backs began the year with minimal fantasy production before exploding onto the scene and carrying fantasy football owners into the playoffs. Patience is key ... the tendency when fantasy owners begin to drop games is unload these guys via trade, but your patience will be rewarded. Each of these stud backs gets a better schedule against the run as the year goes on.
