Fantasy Football is back and the 2020 NFL season is in full bloom and in what’s already been a crazy year for all, we at Bruno Boys can say that we are glad to see the first week of games kickoff of what is sure to be an equally eventful season of offering advice to all of you. Hopefully, we can see this through all 17 weeks of the season. While we can’t say that football will alleviate the struggles many of us are facing, hopefully it can offer an escape and taste of normalcy in your fall season. There is little doubt that this will be a season that will chart new territory and circumstances. So let’s get to it!
If you’re a returning reader to Bruno Boys, welcome back and if you’re new, our Start and Sit position articles span the matchup plays each week, and we circle those borderline, flex decisions and give you confidence in those choices based off of how we see the matchup playing out that week. We’re more than happy to point out a few chalky plays at the end, but in the write-ups, we try to explain our reasoning as to why we are giving that recommendation.
In this article, we are looking at Quarterbacks, which each fantasy league has an abundance of, but based on your league set up and scoring, your starting fantasy roster could hinge completely on the signal caller or it could be the most insignificant of skill players, leading some to stream the position in season long leagues. In super-flex or two-quarterback leagues, it’s often the right combination of the two that pushes you over the edge. Start the wrong guy and it could be the difference of 20-30 points and a costly playoff berth. Let’s see which ones have that winning pedigree in Week 1.
Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Giants
Cue AC/DC’s “Back in Black” because Big Ben’s return will be the missing piece to restore order. Everyone is healthy including James Conner, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and the rest of the cast, but most importantly, Roethlisberger too who was missing most of 2019 with a bum elbow. Assuming the elbow is at full strength, Big Ben will be a welcomed upgrade over last season where the Steelers’ offense was lost with no good quarterback play. Ben is facing a Giants defense that has been taking blows all offseason, culminating with Deandre Baker’s armed robbery arrest and eventual release.
