Cowboys RB Marion Barber was limited in practice today, and his status for Monday night’s game against the Panthers is uncertain. So why are you waiting to add Tashard Choice in your fantasy leagues?
Choice is available in more than 70 percent of NFL.com leagues — a number that’s kind of staggering. There’s no way that all of you handcuffed Barber with Felix Jones. And Choice is a better fantasy option than Jones if Barber misses any time. Choice will assume Barber’s role as the feature back, with Jones maintaining his sidekick role. Choice did well with that opportunity last season.
Even if Barber plays this week, having Choice as your long-term handcuff is a good idea.
