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.
It’s playoff time in fantasy football and this season has proven to be even more challenging than in years past. Now with the threat of COVID-19 altering starting rosters up to the last minute, owners need to keep up with who is on the COVID/Reserve List and if they’re player can give a negative test before their game.
Our advice, stay close to the news wire and check your players’ status up to kickoff. Now, let’s work through those tougher decisions as you fix your lineups for your deep playoff run.
Here are the Week 16 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Sit.
Myles Gaskin, Miami Dolphins at New Orleans
Gaskin has come up small the last two weeks after being on fire in October and November. He had a total of 25 carries against the Giants and Jets, but came away scoreless and rushed for just 98 yards. Against the Jets, people!? But what made Gaskin’s no show against the Jets sting more? Duke Johnson’s surprise arrival onto the scene. Johnson stole the show and got all of the points Gaskin should have gotten.
That presents a problem for Week 16, because the Phins play the Saints, who are brutal against running backs to begin with. Now Gaskin has to share touches with Johnson who can catch and rush too? It’s one thing in a hand cuff situation but we don’t like the similar skill set in a non-injury situation. It’s ride the hot hand and Gaskin has been cold of late.
