When it comes to your Week 3 fantasy football preparations, don’t overlook the usefulness of flex rankings. While it’s not a straightforward “star or sit” column or article, these rankings can help you answer any tough questions it may come to when looking over your running back and wide receiver options and trying to determine who to roll with or leave or leave on the bench.
This week’s rankings are especially important considering the rash of injuries that struck in Week 2, especially to running backs. So be sure to keep an eye out for new faces and this week’s risers and fallers before making those lineup decisions. This also will give you a gauge as to whether you made some savvy moves in finding replacement for those injured players.
