So we have all heard it, all read the stories. The NFL is a passing game now. Teams use the RBBC approach. No more taking RB's with 4 of your first 5 picks. Gotta take a QB round 1 now, blah, blah, blah.
I've been playing fantasy football for 4 or 5 years now. I have never grasped the idea of handcuffing. I mean I understand it sure, but I don't get it, if that makes sense, lol. If you have a stud back, pick his backup. If the stud gets hurt you have a guy thats going to step up and fill that guys shoes. Sure he may not produce like the stud. But having a guy getting most of the snaps, is better then having a guy thats splitting a lot of carries. That all makes perfect sense if your running back gets hurt. If he doesn't then you are wasting a bench spot. Obviously no one can predict injuries, even if some are more prone then others.
My question is, is handcuffing still where its at? Or is it better to just go lottery style, pick a bunch of RB's in the mid to late rounds and hope to catch 1 or 2 that really take off?
