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.

Here are your Week 3 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Sit.
David Johnson, Arizona Cardinals vs. Chicago Bears
There will be owners out there who will start Johnson regardless of matchup and I respect that, but the Bears are giving up the fewest fantasy points through Week 2. Chicago has been a road block for runners, now allowing any running back to rush for more than 47 yards. They’ve not allowed a touchdown on the ground or through the air from a back. That could change with Johnson, but it could also remain the same, after seeing Johnson get handcuffed against the Rams for 48 rushing yards in Week 2. I understand wanting to play Johnson, but if you have bench players with much more favorable matchups, don’t be too stubborn to bench him for a week.
