With so many fantasy-relevant players, particularly running backs and wide receivers, getting hurt flex rankings are becoming more and more useful. And now besides dealing with guys who are questionable (or worse), bye weeks enter into the equation with Green Bay and Philadelphia the first teams to get a breather.
With so many things to consider and information to digest, filling final spot or spots on your roster may be tougher than ever when it comes weighing a less-heralded or established player that is producing against a struggling superstar or early-round draft pick (see Golden Tate). These rankings can help you determine who you should take your chances with and who needs to stay on the bench this week.
Stay tuned for updates as the week progresses and let these rankings help you make those tough lineup decisions.
