New idea I think would be an interesting discussion. Who are the top tier handcuffs? The people that would stand to gain (fantasy) stardom if the first string player got injured, or things of that sort.

I'm looking for the guy I may find in the 12th+ round, that is an injury away from coming in being a fantasy starter. A vague round assignment will be given to them based on a 12 team 0.5 ppr basis.



So far I've got :

Knile Davis (8-10)

Andre Brown (8-10)

Christine Michael (8-10)?

Shonn Green (8-10)

Terrence West (6-8.... lol) (if you want to pay that price. LETS GO TATE)

Blount (12+?, feel like hes forgotten)

Crowell (12+) (the real starter if Tate goes down [which he isn't])

Ka'Deem Carey (12+)

Bernard Pierce (6ish? not sure what to do with this situation)

Dexter Mccluster (UDFA?)


Let's hear it guys
12 team 0.5 ppr (2 Keeper option)

QB : Matthew Stafford
WR : Andre Johnson, Victor Cruz, Terrance Williams, Harry Douglas, Brian Hartline(the f--- was I thinking?)
RB : Marshawn Lynch, Ben Tate, Zac Stacy, Chris Ivory, Andre Williams
TE : Jordan Cameron
K : Matt Bryant
Def : Kansas City

12 team 0.5 ppr
QB: Carson Palmer
RB: Montee Ball, CJ Spiller, Ray Rice, Steven Jackson, Devonta Freeman, James White
WR: Dez Bryant, Vincent Jackson, Percy Harvin, Markus Wheaton, Josh Gordon
TE: Dennis Pitta
K: Hauschka
DEF: Kansas City

I want to say  Joique Bell but Im not sure what his role is going to be, looking like a 60/40 with reggie. I dont know how Mike James isnt on your list guy was a stud for that 2 ( or 3?) game stretch. Maybe Ahmad Bradshaw also? Michael Bush also.

Bell has legit RB2 value with or without Bush. However, I think RB2 might be his ceiling.

The backup with the most to gain is absolutely C-Mike IMO. But his price is likely rising. My favorite sleeper/handcuff right now is Andre Brown.

Mike James is a good one, but the combination of rainey and sims makes me wary of his ability to just step into the feature role. We'll see what happens in preseason

Pretty sure Michael Bush doesn't have a team nor any potential suitors at this point.

Bryce Brown is a handcuff's handcuff.

Maybe on paper but if the fossil known as Fred Jackson gets hurt, I think Spiller and Bryce would both benefit.  The Bills are a run first team and have to be because EJ is so deficient in a variety of ways.

Yeah, I don't even really see Hill as a cuff. That should be a pretty even RBBC if Hue knows what he's doing....and me thinks that he does.

Yeah, as evidenced again and again on these forums, people inexplicably lose their freakin' minds over Gio but he just isn't a workhorse RB. 10 or fewer carries in 8 games last season and a season high of 15 carries with only BJGE to compete with? He is a talented specialty back who should catch a decent amount of passes and have a few big weeks but I can't believe people are using a second round pick on him.

Not that I'm  completely sold on Gio.  But he reminds me of Ray Rice and we all know what Rice did in his second season once he was given the job.

I don't follow the Gio/Rice comparison. Rice is (at least he was) a mini-tank who dominated in pass pro and short yardage situations. Why does Gio remind you of Rice? Because they're both short guys?

Tre Mason in round 11-12 if you pick up Stacy seems necessary.

Chris Polk.  If McCoy goes down he will be the new inside back and in that offense he should provide production.

Or "Not so Neon Dion?" Has this gotta be the season when Tate tears his toenail, Crowell has a drug relapse and whoever that other back is decides Towson was best?
