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 Super Bowl run!
Here are the Week 17 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Start.
Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys vs. Arizona Cardinals
After three rocky weeks (Weeks 13-15), Prescott put a week together to help propel his fantasy owners forward with a 30-point game. That blowout is enough to keep the confidence in him going thru Week 17, where he’ll face a tougher defense in the Cardinals.
They’ve allowed the 5th fewest fantasy points this season to the position. In their current three-game skid, the Cards allowed three QBs to combine for 728 yards, eight touchdowns and zero interceptions. They completed 62-84 passes and averaged 20.0 fantasy points.
Prescott should be a no-brainer, but his recent slump, along with COVID and Zeke Elliott’s health has given his owners doubt on what to expect. But even in this tough matchup, the Cowboys have plenty to play for and they’re getting healthier every week. Prescott is catching the Cards at the right time. They’ve not offered a great deal of resistance against the pass.
