Who to start and who to sit? It’s the one question you need to answer right in order 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 to make an informed and confident starting lineup.
Our Running Backs Starts and Sits look specifically at the line that separates RB2s and RB3s. Which ones are legit RB2 starts and which ones are better projected as a flex? We also consider PPR vs. standard, sleeper picks and streaming options too.
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. Lastly, bye weeks are a factor now.
Here are the Week 14 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Sit.
James Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans
Understandably if you have Robinson you’d want to use him, but the Jags are a mess right now. From Urban Meyer’s coaching gaffes, to his mismanaging Robinson’s touches last week, you’ll never know how the Jags are going to shoot themselves in the foot. You could trace this all the way back when Meyer drafted Travis Etienne, and treated Robinson as if he was a third stringer. He’s been one of the only consistent playmakers they’ve had all season. It’s the difference in him being a low end RB1 to a high end flex.
He’s facing a good Titans run defense that has been known to shut running backs down. Robinson did face these guys in Week 5 and had one of his best games of the year, but the Jags seemed more competitive back then. In fact, Robinson is the only back to go over 100 yards, and over 20.0 fantasy points against the Titans. Knowing the turmoil on the team, we would be surprised if that didn’t spill onto the field this week and affect this run game even further.
