12 team, standard scoring league, 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1K, 1DST, 6BN.
I wanted to get some takes on handcuff approaches in the draft, obviously being standard scoring the RBs fly off the board early and i’m more than happy to go 3 or 4 straight RBs depending on what WRs vs RBs i’m seeing in rounds 3 and 4. With that being said drafting handcuffs isn’t something i do a lot so wanted some advice and views on this.
If you draft players like Ajayi, Collins, D. Freeman etc when Clement, Dixon, Coleman are in the mix later would you prioritise one of them to ‘lock up’ the backfield or get a flex in their own right with upside (Coleman/Clement)?
Or would you focus on other peoples handcuffs, like a Breida in the later rounds as i’m not a McKinnon believer at all he’s become a target of mine? Or pass on some of those primary guys for better value over say an Ajayi/Collins/McKinnon and look to target the Clement/Dixon/Breida types later on?
Any takes appreciated, and any other backfield combos or approaches you like for their value and upside would be good to hear.
