Selecting which of your players to start in the right weeks will help you achieve success in the season. The Bruno Boys are here to help you with those crucial decisions, consider the tough matchups and warn you when your studs are facing defensive assignments that should temper your expectations.
It’s playoff season now and we’re going to look to minimize the risk in our recommendations, while looking for big point potential, but still, staying in that range of the tougher decisions. Here are your Week 15 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Start.
Jeff Wilson Jr. or Matt Breida, San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks
Owners of both backs will want to monitor this situation as this could be a game day decision. Breida is currently nursing an ankle injury and is listed as questionable. He’s the fly who could land in the ointment that is Wilson Jr. if he makes a start. We don’t see this being a platoon situation and Wilson has carried the ball 38 times over the last two games since Breida needed rest. So he can step up into this role nicely. He still hasn’t found the end zone by rushing the ball but his versatility in the pass makes him equally good as Breida. The problem is that they’re unlikely to split the carries in a way that benefits both of them. It’s an either or situation and whomever makes the start, has plenty of opportunity against a resurgent defense whose only glaring problem has been their gap control.
