With six teams on a bye in Week 10, fantasy football owners need to be sure they have players to fill their flex spots. Some players that did well in Week 9 are prime flex candidates for Week 10. Kenyan Drake, for example, is ranked No. 40 on the flex rankings. He's RB25, so for leagues that start two running backs, it is certainly possible that a fantasy owner has two players ranked higher than him. In Week 9, with both Chase Edmonds and David Johnson out, he had 110 rushing yards and a touchdown. (Just for comparison, in the previous six games in Miami, he had a combined total of 176 rushing yards and no touchdowns). He also added 52 receiving yards. While Johnson and/or Edmonds may return in Week 10, Drake has found a role for himself in Arizona.
Another player that is a flex option would be Frank Gore, who was given the goal-line carries over Devin Singletary. However, he couldn't do anything with them. The Buffalo backfield belongs to Singletary, but Gore is someone that fantasy owners can look to as a flex player, especially in a week with six teams on a bye. He's ranked No. 61 for the flex rankings, but RB29.
Teams on bye: Denver, Houston, Jacksonville, New England, Philadelphia, Washington
