Injuries, questionable statuses and a thinning herd of elite fantasy running backs leaves the Flex rankings looking different for Week 10. Expect plenty of things to change in the days ahead, as the health and playing statuses of running backs like Matt Forte as well as quarterbacks such as Teddy Bridgewater will impact these, and other positional rankings.
The other side of the coin to injuries, however, is that they open up opportunities for others to emerge. That was certainly the case Monday night, as rookie Jeremy Langford filled in for the aforementioned Forte and piled up 142 total yards and a touchdown in his first career NFL start. Forte will get the No. 1 role back when he returns, but will that be this week? And if Forte is unable to play, where does Langford rank with a matchup against a stout St. Louis defense?
Teams on bye: Atlanta, Indianapolis, San Diego, San Francisco
As with each week, Flex rankings are on the second tab below with this week's "bonus" rankings being the tight ends.
