Corey Dillon/Laurence Maroney
DeShaun Foster/DeAngelo Williams
Fred Taylor/Toefield/Drew (not so much anymore since Jones went down)
Thomas Jones/Cedric Benson (moreso because of the potential Cedric has of taking over at some point)
Dominic Rhodes/Joseph Addai
Ahman Green/Samkon Gado
Julius Jones/Marion Barber
Chris Brown/Lendale White/Travis Henry
Basically the guys will either health issues or guys who could get the starting job at some point. I don't think I've ever (with the ultimate exception of Priest/LJ) handcuffed a stud RB.
That's a pretty decent summary of logical handcuffs. Handcuffing the Bell's in Denver could probably also be added.
I'm not going to pick up Morris or Turner. If LT or SA goes down, yeah I'm gonna join the rush to the WW to grab Turner or Morris, but not many leagues I'm in are deep enough to carry 'dead weight' for any length of time.
I have a hard enough time deciding which scrub I'm going to cut to fill in a bye week for my K, D, and TE.
