Handcuffs can be useful in more than just Bengal locker rooms and late night Cinemax flics. Today we present an article from FantasySharks.com that profiles the 10 most fantasy relevant RB handcuffs to own. With multiple big name ball carriers nursing injuries it is essential to spend a few picks on those next in line should the starters boo boos not heal in time for week 1.
The workhorse RB is a dying breed which makes the backup RB equivalent to a lottery ticket that could pay major dividends down the round. With AP , Darren McFadden, Jamal Charles, and Rashard Mendenhall are coming off significant injuries that could linger into the 2012 regular season – the owner that invests an early round pick on these projected fantasy studs would be wise to secure their understudy. Targeting the handcuff RBs with the most upside can also serve as potential trade bait even if you don’t own the projected starter – it will also likely help you earn a glare and 1-finger salute from the owner that misses out on insuring their RB investment.
