Hardesty/Snelling Handcuff Issue

Postby NotJohnTillerman » Sun Sep 04, 2011 10:55 pm

Ten team w/ two mandatory keepers, 0.5ppr. Here's the roster for now:

QB: Eli Manning
RB: Michael Turner
RB: Rashard Mendenhall
RB/WR: Peyton Hillis
WR: Dwayne Bowe
WR: Reggie Wayne
TE: Jason Witten
D/ST: Pats
K: Mason Crosby

Be:Wes Welker
Be:Kenny Britt
Be:Mike Tolbert
Be:Deji Karim
Be:Jason Snelling
Be:Ladainian Tomlinson

I know, I'm insanely RB heavy but such is life... my question is what I should do in the handcuff game: I recently picked up Snelling and Karim (handcuffing for somebody I don't have, but now I'm really jonesing for Hardesty for obvious reasons... question is: do I give up some of the reasonable value of a Tolbert or LT to take a flier on Hardesty, or should I grab Hardesty and drop Snelling or Karim?

I'm leaning toward ditching either LT or Snelling for Hardesty. Any thoughts? (Also, am I reaching too hard for handcuffs? I wouldn't mind Redman but it seems like the backfield situation is much fuzzier there than in ATL and Cleveland.

I think that if you are really trying to handcuff, you should probably get rid of LT, and take Hardesty. I don't think it's a bad idea to handcuff, but you also don't need to get too caught up in it. If you can get a guy's backup who has a little bit of talent, I would, but not at the risk of dropping better talent off your roster. I don't think going form LT to Hardesty is a huge drop off at this point.

Please take a look at mine:
