Week 12 flex rankings are compiled and ready for a crazy, but fun week of fantasy football. With the three games on Thanksgiving, no bye weeks, and playoff pushes in full effect a strong and reliable lineup is essential.
If you are out of the playoffs perhaps you are in rebuild mode or maybe you want to play spoiler. As someone who has had terrible seasons, there is no better feeling than beating a team that looks at your record or low point total and assume it will be an easy W. Bumping those teams from the playoffs, or least making them sweat out a Week 13 matchup, feels good too.
Because there are no sure things in fantasy, flex rankings are still vital. For the most part, you always need to start your studs, but if you have been relying on players like Chris Thompson or Robert Woods or even D’Onta Foreman, then you may be digging even deeper into your bench or scouring the waiver wire this week.
As for Week 12, there are some optimal matchups for big names, but don’t sleep on some mid-tier options who are likely to see more work due to injuries or other factors.
