The RB Handcuff, a very interesting fantasy player that has perceived value were anything to go wrong with the player that is ahead of them. We have seen backs explode when given the opportunity and prove that they were a talented option that was buried on a depth chart and we have seen RBs that are nothing special get a ton of work and produce for fantasy. It is tough to determine who a handcuff truly is especially in today’s NFL. Teams are using more than 1 back on a regular basis now and the true workhorse back is a rarity which is why they are so valuable in drafts. There are a ton of factors going into what makes a handcuff so I am going to run through the list of players that I do not think fully qualify.

They are also players that do not have a ton, if any, standalone value weekly as long as the starter is on the field. I will run through the list of names that are not Handcuffs in my personal opinion first and then I will go through and rank the 14 RB’s that I see as true handcuffs giving you a quick reason why on each.

Is Derrick Henry for real? Last year we saw a glimpse of what Henry was capable of doing at the end of the season, and maybe the Titans have finally figured out that their franchise quarterback is not very good. Maybe they finally figured it out!
Prior to Weeks 14 and 15 Derrick Henry
was competing with Dion Lewis for a running back by committee position, and it wasn’t until Week 14 when the Titans let Henry loose and he went for a 99 yard TD run that led to a 238 yard day with 4 TD’s. The next week we saw him carry the ball for 33 times for 170 yards and 2 TD’s.Read More
Finding value in players that are either forgotten about or ones that have been given up on can give you an advantage when working toward that ever elusive fantasy championship. I am qualifying these gems as late round to undrafted players that can either produce immediately for fantasy or as someone who can or will have value at some point in 2019. Upside is some of these players greatest strengths and I will be running down a varied amount of outcomes that these players could have over the course of 2019 so without further ado lets dive into the potential AFC fantasy gems!
