For many fantasy football owners, Week 13 is the final week of the regular season. Win and you’re in your playoffs or are you already eliminated and relegated to playing spoiler? If you’re in the latter category, don’t forget there’s always DFS.
But if you are in the former or your league’s playoffs have already started (and you aren’t on a bye), then the goal is simple — survive and advance. To that end, I hope these flex rankings will help you put together the best possible lineup to accomplish this goal.
Things are always subject to change, but for now the top five will include both Steeler studs, Alvin Kamara and Todd Gurley. Hopefully by this point your lineups are pretty set, barring injuries, since there are no byes, but for those tough decisions or when it comes to determining who will fill your flex spot, these rankings are here to help.
For example, if you are really torn on who to start and tempted to go with Kenyan Drake over Kareem Hunt, I wouldn’t overthink things, unless you have nothing to lose.
