With six teams on a bye and injuries piling up, the flex position on your fantasy team may just be whoever is active and playing this week. However, if you are lucky enough to have options (which include the waiver wire!), try to find the player with the higher ranking or the best matchup.
One player to keep an eye on is Marquez Callaway. He has had more than 70 yards in each of the last two games. He has two touchdowns on the season and with Deonte Harris possibly out, he may have a bigger role. However, Tre'Quan Smith was just activated from injured reserve, so Callaway may face some competition for targets from him. Callaway should be viewed as a flex option.
Another possible flex option is J.D. McKissic. With Antonio Gibson banged up, McKissic may take on a bigger role. While McKissic is typically the pass-catching back, he also has had some big running plays. Washington faces Green Bay in Week 7, and McKissic is another possible flex option.
