And the race is on!  David Johnson is likely headed to IR with the wrist injury suffered in the game yesterday.  X-rays appears to show no structural damage, but he’s going to have a MRI to assess the injury further.   But it appears that DJ will be out at least a few weeks, or perhaps even put on IR with possibility of returning later in the season.  Fantasy owners are scrambling to pick up his backup!

Who is David Johnson’s Backup (or handcuff)?

I’m sure many of you have had Kerwynn Williams on your fantasy teams before in seasons past.   The 26 year old, out of Utah State, is in his 4th NFL season.  He appeared in 10 games last season, rushing for 157 yards on just 18 carries, that’s a whopping 8.7 yards per carry!  He also scored two touchdowns in those limited carries. His best showing was the last game of the season last year, with 60 yards rushing on 12 carries with one touchdown.  He’s the clear backup at this point, although Andre Elligton also figures in the mix.

Adivce is to bid high on Williams, he will be off waivers FAST!
