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 sit.
Austin Hooper, TE, Atlanta Falcons vs. Minnesota Vikings
Tight end has been a lean position when facing the Vikings. Over the last six games, they have held all tight ends out of the end zone and just one has made it over 40 yards receiving. Despite opposing teams targeting their tight ends an average of 7.7 times per game, they’re only getting 4.6 receptions against them for a paltry 43.9 yards per. As for Hooper, he’s been increasingly erratic, having scored in just three games all season and has come up with less than 10 yards receiving four times. The other four games Hooper has caught in between 38-50 yards and would only be worth owning in a full point PPR league. With Julio Jones becoming hot in recent weeks, Hooper’s targets have been fading. – Ernie Estrella
