Best RB Handcuffs

Postby suncowiam » Tue Sep 20, 2011 7:07 pm

Our waiver system is reverse-order against rank for each week. It is not rolling. I am currently first with a pretty decent team so I will most likely be getting last to very late picks on waivers after each week.

Need to think ahead and target players in good positions in case their number falls down. Here are several players off the top of my head:
OAK - Michael Bush
MIN - Toby Gerhart
JAC - Deji Karim
WAS - Roy Helu
DAL - DeMarco Murray

Who would you have sit on your bench in case someone goes down?

Roy Helu, not close. Wrong forum, but he is already going to be a big part of the offense and could win the job from Hightower outright.

Agreed. And he is the only reason I'm trying to find a trade for Hightower. Go Helu, he might be starting the second half of the season.

Was this moved here from another forum? If not, where does it belong? I haven't been over to this side in months and I can barely navigate, the forums are so cumbersome and hodgepodge anymore... :-?

Completely agree. ;-D

I would expect Helu to get more and more carries as the season progresses.

I would say Deji Karim or Michael Bush. Deji has the most upside, but Bush is a TD vulture.

Delone Carter. But I'm not sure if you would really consider him a handcuff since he is already splitting carries. :-?
