Who to start and who to sit? It’s the one question you need to answer right to do well in this crazy game of 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 Quarterback Starts and Sits look at the line that separates QB1s and QB2s. 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.
We also consider super flex and two-quarterback leagues, which have become increasingly popular. There are owners who need to know when it’s safe to put Jameis Winston into a lineup or when the stars align to start rookies Mac Jones or Justin Fields. Lastly, bye weeks are a factor now.
Here are the Week 6 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Sit.
Derek Carr, Las Vegas Raiders at Denver Broncos
Which Derek Carr is going to show up this Sunday? Will we see the quarterback who was unstoppable through the first three weeks, or the one from the last two weeks that is barely averaging 200.0 passing yards? Carr has not beat good coverage like he was doing in September and the Broncos are yet another quality defense.
Denver is coming off a game where they let Diontae Johnson get past them. But they held Lamar Jackson and Ben Roethlisberger combined to just three touchdowns, 27 rushing yards, 569 passing yards. As a defense you’ll take those numbers as a sign that you’re headed in the right direction.
We still don’t know how the Raiders respond on the field to losing their head coach resigning mid-season and what that does to a team. Carr and the Raiders have a lot to overcome.
