It’s time to put the right players forward and keep the ball rolling. Seasoned fantasy players know about the studs and chalky plays so at Bruno Boys we try to help wade through the matchups on those tougher decisions, or point out when there’s a great matchup that you should go all-in on.
That said, the early part of the season can be a tough one since the preseason shows so little to go on. The complete NFL package get clearer and clearer with each passing week. Still, we feel very strong about these recommendations and you should use them to help guide you to your starting lineup.
Here are your Week 3 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Sit.
Kerryon Johnson, Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles
Johnson appears to have established himself as the Lions bell cow back, early in the season and it was supported with the release of C.J. Anderson. However, the Eagles are a tough draw in Week 3. They’ve not allowed a running back to reach 35 yards rushing this season. Johnson is likely to add some juice with some receptions out of the backfield but look for the Eagles to stuff Johnson at the line of scrimmage and challenge Matthew Stafford to beat them with his arm.
