2019 Fantasy Football Running Back Handcuff Depth Chart

There is no exact science for this because teams increasingly use committees (ex: BUF, CHI, SF), and there are obviously receiving specialists (like James White and Jalen Richard, who aren’t listed below because they will have basically the same role no matter what) or guys that simply have a stable weekly role (like Austin Ekeler, who is listed as the “longshot” behind Justin Jackson but should be ranked as a better standalone option in drafts this summer). For an explanation for something below, we can answer any and all questions via Fantasy Consigliere.
