Fantasy Football: Week 2 waiver wire pick-ups

3 of 5

#1 RB waiver wire pickup: David Johnson (35% owned)

David Johnson is the only player in the history of football to have a rushing td, receiving td, and a kickoff return td in his first two games. He’s the running back version of James Jones. All he does is score touchdowns. The Bruce Arians player-seniority bull crap is driving me insane. How do you not play the more talented, more elusive, better player? Who cares if he’s a rookie? I still can’t believe Chris Johnson got off the couch and secured this starting role only because his mom wanted to have a kid before David Johnson’s mother wanted to (pun intended).  Now if Chris Johnson jumped out of a pool with cocoons at the bottom, that would be a different story but he looks like the same old CJ1K. David Johnson played 16 snaps Sunday. While only touching the ball 6 times, he gained 45 yards on the ground and scored a 13-yard touchdown. He added a 108-yard kickoff return as well. He has a knack for the end zone and I can’t wait for him to be the “lead bird” for the Arizona Cardinals. (Honorable Mention: Matt Jones, Dion Lewis, James Starks, Ronnie Hillman)
