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.
Duke Johnson Jr., RB, Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers
Johnson continues to play a big role in the Browns offense. He had 7 receptions for 81 yards out of the backfield in Week 16 and now has a career-high 68 receptions on the year. As good as he has been, it’s tough to trust Johnson against the Steelers and their top-5 ranked defense. He had just 2 receptions for 20 yards against Pittsburgh in Week 1 and you can expect the Steelers to gameplan against shutting down the Browns’ biggest asset. – Marc Caviglia
