Who to start and who to sit? It’s the one question you need to answer right in order to do well in fantasy football. You won’t get it right every time but at Bruno Boys we help you work through those tougher decisions to make an informed and confident starting lineup.
Our Running Backs Starts and Sits look specifically at the line that separates RB2s and RB3s. Which ones are legit RB2 starts and which ones are better projected as a flex? We also consider PPR vs. standard, sleeper picks and streaming options too.
We will rarely cover studs unless it’s a sit recommendation based on matchup or we want to make note of a significant angle in the Quick Hits section at the end. Injuries happen too, which affects other players’ fantasy outlook. Lastly, bye weeks are a factor now.
Here are the Week 11 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Start.
Myles Gaskin, Miami Dolphins at New York Jets
The flood of fantasy points given to running backs by the Jets defense is astronomical. They are bleeding fantasy points, and there seems to be no end in sight. The number of running backs who have scored against the Jets is up to 14 different backs, five of which did so multiple times. 17 running backs have reached double-digit fantasy points. Only Zack Moss last week scored, but failed to reach 10.0 points.
For Gaskin not to score and reach double digits would be a massive misplay by the Dolphins. It might even be worth it to stream Salvon Ahmed for those in desperate need of RB production. If there’s a week for him to get anything going it’d be in this game. But honestly, that might be going a little too far.
Going back to Gaskin, he has had his ups and downs in this season. He has done predictably well against the Falcons and and Texans, but has not been able to rise above his competition whenever it’s a bad matchup, well, except for that Week 5 game against the Bucs, only to follow that up with a dud against the Jaguars. Now he just has to do what every other back in the league has done, destroy the Jets.
