Fantasy Football: Bye week RB help

6/28/2007

Picking the starting running backs for your fantasy football team is hard enough. Picking your reserves at the most important position in fantasy is enough to make you tear your hair out.

Do you go young, reach for a rookie, and try to catch lightning in a bottle while acknowledging the possibility you could wind up whiffing entirely? Do you blindly handcuff, making sure you get the man who would inherit the starter's role if, heaven forbid, something should happen to your first-round pick? Do you cannily select backs who have what look like tasty matchups when your starters are out for their bye weeks?

Yes, yes and yes.
