Drafting your fantasy football team is the easy part, now comes the hard part, knowing who and when to sit your players on any given week. Sure, it’s easy to decide what to do with your studs or your bench players, 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. On rare occasions, because the matchup is stacks so high against a player, that even studs or high draft picks need to be benched on occasion Here are our recommendations on who to sit.

Ebron always seems like he’s on the verge of a big season but for whatever reason falls short of expectations. This year he’ll be counted on in an offense that needs to grow beyond what Matthew Stafford can do with his small group of receivers, Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and running backs Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah. Unfortunately, Ebron will be facing defense that last year held opposing tight ends to just two touchdowns in 2016. There were only three tight ends that caught for over 50 yards receiving but none of them went past 53 yards. So the Cardinals are smothering when it comes to the tight end and unless Ebron is catching a touchdown, there’s not much value here in this matchup. – Ernie Estrella
