Fantasy Football Handcuff Report: The Status Quo
Howard Bender updates the fantasy football handcuff grid and shares thoughts on potential backfield changes in the NFL.
What’s going on, FA Nation? How’s the #FAmily doing?
Not a whole lot of activity on the running back and handcuff front, but there are still a few situations that are worth mentioning. Here’s what I’m thinking…
There are no changes in the running back hierarchy in Cincinnati, but with A.J. Green out and Giovani Bernard heading back, it’s worth exploring Gio in PPR formats. Tyler Boyd is going to see heavier coverage and between John Ross and Alex Erickson , the Bengals are going to need to adjust their passing attack. That should put Bernard not a much better spot. You’ll obviously have to check his practice schedule regarding his use this week, but even looking ahead to Week 11 against the Ravens, a short-passing attack may be necessary. Mixon’s usage, by the way, should also increase in the absence of Green.
