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 18 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Start.

Samaje Perine, Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns

Talk about hot and cold, the Browns defense is one that should have done better from game to game, much like their offense. Although they’ve had less letdowns than the offense, the lack of pass rush and allowing a select few running backs destroy them made for uncharacteristic lapse. Five running backs scored at least 20 points on them.

Even though Joe Mixon is out as is Joe Burrow, Perine should be worth the flex start in Week 18. The Bengals will likely lean heavily on the run and take advantage of their young speed on the edges. However if they get up early, there’s no reason to have J’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins on the field any longer than they have to. So look for Perine to clean up and bring an ugly game home for Cinci.
