Selecting which of your players to start in the right weeks will help you achieve success in the season. The Bruno Boys are here to help you with those crucial decisions, consider the tough matchups and warn you when your studs are facing defensive assignments that should temper your expectations.
It’s playoff season now and we’re going to look to minimize the risk in our recommendations, while looking for big point potential, but still, staying in that range of the tougher decisions. Here are your Week 17 Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Sit.
Dalvin Cook, Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears
From a rushing standpoint, this is going to be a long game for Cook as the Bears are one of the stingiest defenses against the run. They kept the Rams from using Todd Gurley, and kept all of the Niners’ running backs at bay. Cook has managed to post consecutive quality starts coming into Week 17 but those were against porous run defenses like Detroit and Miami. Chicago will be a greater test and one where Cook’s only prospects come by way of the pass.
