Fantasy owners often struggle when they have to fill the flex spots in their roster. It's a toss-up between a running back and a wide receiver most of the time. However, often a tight end may factor into the mix. It's feasible that a fantasy owner has Travis Kelce or another top tight end and drafted Mark Andrews in the later rounds. Andrews was the top-scoring tight end in Week 2. He's TE4 and ranked No. 55 in the flex rankings.
The running back and wide receiver rankings are straightforward, but when it comes to flex it gets tougher. At the end of the day, check the rankings to see where the players you have on your roster rank. Fill out your roster spots as you go and if you fill all of your wide receiver spots before the running back slots and you find another wide receiver on the list that is next in the rankings, start him in your flex spot. It seems straightforward, but fantasy owners often have a gut feeling. Don't be afraid to go with your gut.
