We are officially at the one quarter mark of the season and it’s serious now. Go on a roll and put some distance between you and your opponents. Or perhaps you need to make ground, after a slow start? The second month of the season is a crucial one and yes, there are byes every week to complicate matters.
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.
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 5 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Sit.
Josh Jacobs, Oakland Raiders vs. Chicago Bears
Jacobs has shown he can run with the best of them and he’s great at making tacklers miss. But while has shown he is a solid back against bad to good defenses, he still has to prove he can do it against the best squads. That’s not all on him either, because Oakland’s offensive line is a work in progress. The Bears’ 3rd ranked rushing defense is allowing just 58.8 rushing yards to backs and 61.5 yards per game, and will make it an arduous task to pound the ball in London.
