Ideal Bye Week Running Backs

While handcuffing your stud running back (drafting his actual NFL backup) is critical in fantasy football, it's also important to draft players to fill in for him when he's on a bye. This page identifies the non-fantasy starting RBs that have the easiest match-ups on the stud's bye week. Points allowed to RBs listed in []
