After Monday night's breakout performance is Jerick McKinnon a viable flex option this week?
Flex rankings are back for Week 6 of the fantasy football season and it has Kareem Hunt reclaiming the top spot over Le’Veon Bell based on the former’s matchup with the latter’s team. This week also has players such as Sterling Shepard, Jerick McKinnon, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins climbing the rankings due to bigger roles as a result of injuries and/or increased opportunities.
Buffalo, Cincinnati, Dallas and Seattle are on bye in Week 6 so that means fantasy owners will be filling holes at different positions. Some may need to scour the waiver wire while others already have sufficient depth on their bench.
For example, will you need to take a flyer on the Jets’ Elijah McGuire, who faces a Patriots defense that has been shredded by pass-catching running backs this season?
