Runs a 4.37 40 yard dash, the handcuff to Jaamal, showed spurts of talent towards the end of last season. He hasn't showed a lot so far this preseason, but if anything ends up happening to Jaamal, Knile will be the first shot, no questions asked. He's definitely more valuable in dynasty/keeper leagues than re-drafts since there will not be immediate playing time, but in my opinion is worth a look otherwise.

Exactly why I have Charles #1.

1 - Hes Jamaal Charles
2 - his handcuff is a top 10 RB if disaster strikes

I'd say with confidence the best back-up in the league right now.

Based on the annual markup for handcuffs, the fact that it's feasible he has standalone value during bye weeks, and the fact that he's got talent on par with JC's, I'd say you sacrifice a 7th or 8th rounder if you're desperate to handcuff.

As someone picking outside of the top 8, I'll be looking to snipe handcuffs like Knile that could have a good amount of flex value in the 9th and later rounds. If their starter goes down and I have two starting RBs, I have someone to trade to the starter's owner. If I'm struggling to field a decent RB corps by that point, I've got a guaranteed starter until the "stud" returns.

I won't overpay and reach for them, but if they're sitting out there at decent value and there's no one else I'm thrilled with, I'll take them.

Completely agree, in fact I was shocked that he was still floating around in the draft room in round 12 of my 16-team keeper league, so I snabbed him at 190 overall. I do not own Jamaal, but I have Shady, so this guy could easily make a FLEX start during a bye week or something, OR I could end up trading the dude to Jamaal's owner for a steep price, hang on to him until he becomes a stud, or trade him away to the guy who owns my handcuff (Chris Polk) plus whoever else makes it a fair trade. I doubt most people will be able to draft him so low, but even somewhere around 105-120th overall is definitely worth it, especially in dynasty/keeper formats.

If I had Charles I'd reach for Davis.
If a league mate wants to reach higher, good he just took a backup RB way too early.

Picked him up late as handcuff, as people are suggesting. It only makes sense, and luckily I didn't have to reach since it was a live draft and everyone was drunk by then. :D (14th rd pick)

He's actually one of the reasons I felt good about taking Charles first overall.

2014: 12-Team, Full PPR, #1 Pick

QB ---- Russell Wilson, Tom Brady
RB ---- Jamaal Charles, Andre Ellington, Pierre Thomas, Shane Vereen, Joique Bell, Denard Robinson, Knile Davis
WR---- Antonio Brown, Percy Harvin, Golden Tate, Torrey Smith, Josh Gordon

TE----- Julius Thomas
K ------ Phil Dawson
DEF--- Minnesota Vikings

If you don't own Charles, how long are you guys planning on holding? Since I'm holding on to Gordon, my bench is very limited.

Typically a bad idea to hold someone else's cuff but in case of Knile he is an top 12 RB if JC goes down which can be this week or the week after. There really is no timeline on how long to hold guys like this. Instead of dropping, trade to the guy who has JC. I am sure he will gladly overpay.

I get what he's saying. I agree that it is generally a bad idea, because which handcuff out of all those teams do you burn a bench spot for? It doesn't really make sense to. Unless it's a unique case like Davis, or Ben Tate behind Foster a couple of years ago.

Trade bait to the JC owner or you're just gunna be burning a bench spot in hopes JC either gets injured or an AP situation arises IMO. Solid trade bait though, he'll just rarely see time unless something happens.

I think its all about upside at the end of the day. Most cuffs dont have upside when the starter misses time. And most of the fallback plans are to go RBBC if the starter misses time. Knile Davis is a unique situation where he will be the starter if JC sits. Unless you believe the cuff will be the starter on his own, its generally a bad idea to waste a roster spot.
