When it comes to building a championship roster in fantasy football, depth is a crucial factor. Running back handcuffs might not seem like a big deal to your average fantasy football player, but for those of us who have tried to master the game for years, we understand that sometimes drafting a handcuff can be just as important as selecting a starter.
In order to rank the Top 10 running back handcuffs to draft in 2013, a few factors were taken into consideration.
For starters, players who have a chance to take over the starting job for their respective team at some point in 2013 were ranked higher than others.
Whether they end up in the starting role due to injury or the current starter's lack of production, this element was crucial to building this list.
Secondly, a player's ability to score consistent points on a weekly basis was a driving factor in coming up with these rankings.
Guys who should be able to contribute on a weekly basis either via the goal-line, catching passes or because of a timeshare role ranked higher than others.
Finally, the last factor taken into consideration when coming up with this list was reliability. That means guys who have proven in the past they can produce on a consistent basis when given a chance ended up making the list.
With all of that being said it's now time to unveil the Top 10 running back handcuffs to draft in 2013.
