When looking to fill the flex position, fantasy managers may not always look to the flex rankings. It often makes sense to analyze each individual position and to choose the player that is ranked higher. Also, fantasy managers take into account matchups and their league scoring. But those that do check the flex rankings, this takes the running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends and ranks them against each other.
Julio Jones was a viable flex option last week, but he may have earned his way up to a starting wide reciever spot for Week 2. If you are looking at him as a flex option, go for it. He showed a great connection with Tom Brady, and you know that when Brady trusts you, your chances for success are much greater. Alternatively, Hunter Renfrow was a starter in Week 1 and has dropped to flex territory for Week 2. He lost more work than expected to new teammate Davante Adams, and fantasy managers need to see how the Raiders' offense shakes out.
