Week 11 has begun with a bang, or is it a swing of a helmet? We’re nearly done with the byes, with four teams on break: Green Bay, New York Giants, Seattle, Tennessee which takes out some quality running backs, some big time quarterbacks and some major receivers. Those holes need to be filled, hopefully with players on the bench but do they have the matchups? Luckily, that’s what we’re here for to help you set your lineups.
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 11 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Sit.
Phillip Lindsay, Denver Broncos at Minnesota Vikings
With a rookie quarterback under center, the Broncos backfield will be staring at eight or nine men in a box and with carries already split with Royce Freeman, Lindsay is trending down especially against the tougher defenses in the league. The Vikings just held Zeke Elliott to 47 rushing yards on 20 carries. Coming off that performance, the Vikings defense will be amped. Even though he’s likable, Lindsay has yet to play above the matchup, but better matchups are coming for Lindsay,especially in Weeks 12 and 13 and definitely at the end of the season.
