Drafting your fantasy football team is the easy part, now comes the hard part, knowing who and when to start your players on any given week. Sure, it’s easy to decide what to do with your studs, but at Bruno Boys Fantasy Football, we concentrate on giving our readers start and sit advice about players who are lower down the rankings. If you assembled your team on the strength of positions other than the one we’re highlighting in this article, chances are you have players where you have to consider the best matchups, the skill players around them, the strength of the opposing defense and their health. Here are our recommendations on who to sit.


Philip Rivers, QB, San Diego Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Rivers got off to another strong start this year, but now has thrown at least one interception in six straight games, and he threw multiple interceptions in three of those. He’s just one interception shy of his career, set during his terrible 2011 season. The yardage and touchdown totals have been there all season, but his upside has been severely hampered by his tendency to throw picks. The Chargers offense will also be without breakout running back Melvin Gordon, and don’t really have much to play for.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, are playing for a division title, and will be hungry and motivated. Their defense is coming off a strong outing against the Broncos, as they held Trevor Siemian to 40% passing and an interception and forced three fumbles.

There is still some value for Rivers in deeper leagues, but in standard leagues there are plenty of stronger options this week. — Christoph Ludwig
