NFL Best Ball: Who's the Top Handcuff to Own?

No position deals with more injury issues than running back, and handcuffs can be one solution to bracing yourself against disaster. Our experts discuss backups who could excel if the incumbent starter goes down, as well as a certain Cardinals back who may contribute regardless.

Who is your favorite handcuff to own?

Chris Gimino: I wrote Malcolm Brown at first because he’s so cheap (and cheaper than Darrell Henderson), but then I reconsidered what I’m actually doing in drafts and I’m getting Chase Edmonds at a low price as well. I don’t have any reason to think he’ll be a game changer without injury, but any absence of David Johnson would propel him to fantasy super stardom.
