Finding a flex player is often difficult, as fantasy managers want to try to utilize the flex position as best as possible. Sometimes it is a gamble on a player that has an opportunity to succeed, but not a guarantee. For example, Philadelphia running backs are going to be flex players for Week 11. Miles Sanders may be returning, but he didn't look great before he was injured. Boston Scott and Jordan Howard were the running backs while Sanders was out (with a bit of Kenneth Gainwell tossed in). For Week 11, all three are listed as flex options.
Another grouping of flex players is the New York Jets wide receivers. Corey Davis is ranked the highest, followed by Jamison Crowder and Elijah Moore. None are great starting options, especially in a matchup against a Miami defense that is playing well right now. However, for a flex play, Davis is the best bet. The Jets have quarterback questions (Zach Wilson may be back), which is another reason to not treat any Jets pass catcher as more than a potential flex play.
