Arizona Cardinals running backs Chris Johnson and Kerwynn Williams split the majority of the carries in the team's Week 2 victory against the Colts. Williams was the starting running back, logging eight carries for 22 yards, while Johnson had 11 carries for 44 yards after starting on the bench. Neither stat line is encouraging, considering that the Colts defense is not known for their impressive run-stopping ability. This looks to be a committee on a struggling offense. Fantasy owners should want no part of this backfield.
Arizona Cardinals running back Kerwynn Williams will get the start in Week 2, followed by Andre Ellington, according to head coach Bruce Arians. With David Johnson (wrist) out for several months, the Cardinals will employ a committee approach to their backfield, with Williams receiving the first go. He should be your primary target off the waiver wire if you own Johnson or are looking for running back help, but don't be surprised if touches are split evenly between Williams and Ellington, and Chris Johnson could even mix in sparingly. Tarik Cohen, Javorius Allen and Chris Carson are probably all more attractive waiver pickups.

'I'm fine right now,' Arians said this week at the NFL's annual meeting when asked about Arizona's running-game situation. 'I think Kerwynn has proven every time he plays he gets 100 yards,' he added. 'Everybody says he's too small. He just gets 100 yards every time he steps out there.'
Fantasy Spin: His value is high right now but don't discount the Cardinals to grab a running back in the draft to compete with Williams for the backup job.
