For most leagues, Week 14 signals the start of the fantasy playoffs, which means lineup decisions for your flex spot are even more important. The good news is there are no byes and plenty of appealing matchups, both from an NFL and fantasy standpoint.
Along those lines, Mike Evans is the top wide receiver for this week because he is facing New Orleans’ weak secondary. The Saints got embarrassed last week, while the Buccaneers have been playing really well lately. This game should feature plenty of scoring, which bodes well for Evans as well as Brandin Cooks, hopefully.
For the running backs, the top-tier guys have become the most consistent and highest-scoring options and even once you get past the studs like David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell and Ezekiel Elliott, you can’t really go wrong with any of the top-10 fixtures (such as DeMarco Murray, LeSean McCoy, Melvin Gordon).

If you have made it this far, your lineup and roster should be in pretty decent shape. Now it’s just a matter of maximizing your resources and winning that championship. Hopefully these flex rankings and the other positional ones will help you with those tough lineup decisions.
