Darius Slayton is a solid flex option for Week 15
With all of the injuries that occurred in Week 14, fantasy football owners need to look at flex players to fill their lineups. Last week, Raheem Mostert was listed as a decent flex play. He had 109 yards from scrimmage, a rushing touchdown, and a TD catch. Not a bad day for a flex player. He's ranked higher this week — RB19, flex ranking No. 27. Another flex option among RBs is Adrian Peterson. He's running back No. 27, but flex ranking No. 47. With Derrius Guice back on injured reserve, this will be Peterson's backfield, with Chris Thompson (flex ranking No. 128) mixed in.
After putting up a 5/154/2 stat line in Week 14, Darius Slayton is WR35, but flex ranking No. 76. He's really shown promise as a rookie, and he's connected with both Eli Manning (the likely Week 15 starter) and Daniel Jones (still dealing with a high ankle sprain). With many of the wide receiver injuries that occurred in Week 14, finding flex players may be difficult. Slayton is an ideal flex candidate.
