Running Back Handcuffs
If you haven’t done this yet, make sure you add at least one handcuff for one of your top backs during this week’s waiver period. In the playoffs, you’re not really in need of great depth, so having the security is nice, and you don’t want to lose now because Adrian Peterson went down and you missed-out on some great production from Toby Gerhart
The same holds true for Jamaal Charles and his handcuff, Knile Davis, or a team like the Steelers, whose top back (Le’Veon Bell” may be out due to injury, and you’ve already got a potential starter in Felix Jones sitting on the waiver wire.
Here is a list I’ve compiled of teams who are giving their No. 1 back the majority of carries, meaning their backup is likely available in your league at this point.
