What is a fantasy football handcuff?
A fantasy handcuff is a backup that will likely take over for a team's starter in the event of an injury. A common strategy on draft day is to stash the backups of the prominent RBs you've drafted. Below is a chart of each team's handcuff along with their Rest of Season Ranking (ROS).
