Bye weeks are over as of Week 13, which means the fantasy football flex rankings are in full effect. This week also is the final week of the regular season for many fantasy leagues, while some start their playoffs in Week 13. And for some this could just be a week to put a bow on the season, whether that means you go out on a winning note or with just a whimper.
Either way it is a critical week and with even more injuries in Week 12, the biggest happening to Melvin Gordon, some fantasy owners may be scrambling to find options or at least the BEST options for their starting lineup. At least Gordon produced his typical volume before going down, but this is one of those injuries that could impact the outcome in many a league, especially if the guy who has Gordon didn't handcuff him with Austin Ekeler or doesn't have much depth behind him.
Hopefully these positional rankings have helped all season and will offer additional assistance this week. If you are on the cusp in the standings and need a win to get in the playoffs, I wish you the best of luck. May your flex players have a Lamar Miller-esque performance this week!
