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 at the middle to 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 start.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
It hasn’t been a smooth start to the season for Big Ben, but the gunslinger still has 6 touchdown passes through four games. Many might be scared away from a Week 5 matchup against the top-rated Jaguars passing defense, however their numbers are fabricated by shoddy quarterback play. Roethlisberger is due for a big game and it comes this week. Plus, he’s a better quarterback in the confines of Heinz Field. — Marc Caviglia
