Flex rankings are some of the more important weekly positional fantasy football rankings you can find since most leagues utilize one, whether it’s a running back or wide receiver or include tight ends too. Many rosters are built and set, but what if you have a guy like Kareem Hunt or you manage to pick up Tarik Cohen who wasn’t in your lineup Week 1? That adds a whole new challenge for many owners and a coin flip could work, or you can utilize flex rankings like these.
There also are injuries that can crush an owner’s lineup stability in the blink of an eye. That was the case last week when David Johnson went down with a dislocated wrist that could keep him out three months while Allen Robinson (ACL) is done for the season. So who takes their place on their respective teams and what does that do the rankings?
Be sure to scour the waiver wire and consult the other positional rankings to help you fill out Week 2 lineups.
