It’s Week 6 of the 2022 NFL Season, Bruno Boys Nation and that fifth week was a dizzying collection games. You feel for hard luck teams like the Seattle Seahawks, Miami Dolphins or Las Vegas Raiders, while teams like Tampa, Philly, and Buffalo keep rolling. That fifth week of information keeps building on what we know. Teams keep evolving (and devolving) as the weeks go on.
Studs will be studs, and of course those players are cemented in your lineup. At Bruno Boys, we look at the tougher decisions on who to start and who to sit. For instance those pesky flex situations, that third receiver, or that super flex.
Last week we went 6-2 with our featured Sits. That makes us 28-13 through Week 5. Remember, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas and Tennessee are on BYE. In no particular order, we’ve picked out the best for Week 6 and remember there are bonus Sits at the end of the article.
9. Najee Harris, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
It’s been painful watching the Steelers try to run an offense this year. First with Mitch Trubisky running the show, now rookie Kenny Pickett. There’s going to be growing pains and most people will think it’s nuts to sit Harris. However, look at what he’s done the last two weeks. He’s combined for 29 carries for just 94 yards. He is averaging 8.6 fantasy points per game and has yet to take a whiff of 100 rushing yards. Sure, he’s getting the good volume, but there’s no push, no passing game to take part of and now Jaylen Warren is being given snaps in garbage time.
