Who to start and who to sit? It’s the one question you need to answer right to do well in fantasy football. You won’t get it right every time. But at Bruno Boys, we help you work through those tougher decisions. That way, you make informed decisions on your starting lineup and will be confident in locking it in.
Our Quarterback Starts and Sits look at the line that separates QB1s and QB2s. We will rarely cover studs, unless it’s a sit recommendation based on matchup or we want to make note of a significant angle in the Quick Hits section at the end. Injuries happen too, which affects other players’ fantasy outlook.
We also consider super flex and two-quarterback leagues, which have become increasingly popular. There are owners who need to know when it’s safe to put Taylor Heinicke into a lineup or when the stars align to start rookies Mac Jones or Justin Fields. Lastly, remember about bye weeks.
Here are the Week 13 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Sit.
Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Ryan had a string of spot starts in Weeks 4, 5, 7, and 9. Outside of those performances he’s average at best (Week 2 at Tampa), god awful in others (Week 10 at Dallas), particularly the last month. He’s struggled to reach 20 completions in a game and has thrown over 200 yards once in the last five games.
The last time he faced the Bucs in Week 2, he threw 300/2/3. Their defense still gives up a lot of yardage through the air, but that last digit is an alarming three-pick red flag for this rematch.
Ryan doesn’t have Calvin Ridley time around. Mike Davis is an afterthought. The only playmaker doing anything is Cordarrelle Patterson. But as the recent weeks have shown, that’s just not enough to elevate Ryan from being a desperate play.
