Flex Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Michael Carter, New York Jets

Despite an easy matchup, Michael Carter has fallen into flex territory for Week 16

Heading into Week 16, fantasy managers of the offensive players on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should be a little nervous. Leonard Fournette and Chris Godwin will miss Week 16, but Mike Evans is a question mark. He's not ranked at this point, as it doesn't look likely that he will be able to play through his hamstring injury. Antonio Brown is ranked as a solid flex option (potentially a low WR3 as well). Ronald Jones II is ranked as a low RB2, but Ke'Shawn Vaughn is a desperation flex option. It will be hard to truly trust anyone on the Bucs this week, even with a great match-up against the Carolina Panthers.

Another player that has dropped into flex territory is Michael Carter. Part of the problem is that the Jets have struggled on offense. The other part of the problem is that Tevin Coleman is taking work from the rookie. Carter was injured and came back in Week 15 but only ran for 18 yards. He's hard to trust even with a nice matchup against Jacksonville in Week 16.
