Flex rankings for Week 14 of the fantasy season


Playoffs? Sorry, had to do it in honor of this week’s kickoff to the fantasy playoffs. We’ll get you set up for all of your decisions with this week’s edition of the flex rankings. Be sure to check out our staff rankings for all weekly rankings.

Updated Dec. 10. Movement from Wednesday’s rankings are displayed in parenthesis.

1. (0) David Johnson, ARI (RB1) — We’re really splitting hairs at the No. 1 spot between Bell and Johnson. Both are seeing elite workloads.

2. (0) Le’Veon Bell, PIT (RB2) — See above.

3. (0) Antonio Brown, PIT (WR1) — He’s the top fantasy receiver in both PPR and standard scoring. Enough said.

4. (0) Ezekiel Elliott, DAL (RB3) — Elliot has over 200 more rushing yards than any other running back this season.

5. (0) Mike Evans, TB (WR2) — The league leader in targets gets a plus matchup against the Saints. He also faces them in Week 16.

6. (0) LeSean McCoy, BUF (RB4) — McCoy posted a massive 191 scrimmage yards last week and gets to run behind one of the league’s best run-blocking offensive lines.

7. (2) Melvin Gordon, SD (RB5) — He’s one of just five running backs with double-digit touchdowns and is just eight rushing yards away from 1,000.

8. (0) Odell Beckham Jr., NYG (WR3) — With double-digit targets in three of the last four weeks, Beckham is second among wide receivers in targets over the last month.

9. (-2) DeMarco Murray, TEN (RB6) — Denver is succepible to the run, so look for the Titans to lean heavily on Murray this week.

10. (0) Spencer Ware, KC (RB7)

11. (0) Julio Jones, ATL (WR4) — He’s dealing with turf toe, but should be good to go this week. Keep an eye on his practice reports though.

12. (0) T.Y. Hilton, IND (WR5) — Andrew Luck is surging down the stretch, and Hilton happens to be his favorite targets.

13. (4) Matt Forte, NYJ (RB8) — The Jets are trending in the wrong directions, but Forte gets an upgrade this week against the 49ers.

14. (0) Devonta Freeman, ATL (RB9) — Four of Freeman’s seven rushing touchdowns have come in the last two weeks.

15. (0) Dez Bryant, DAL (WR6) — With the Cowboys’ offense firing on all cylinders, Bryant is an every-week WR1.

16. (0) Jordy Nelson, GB (WR7) — He’s fifth in fantasy scoring among wide receivers and is one of just three wideouts with double-digit touchdowns.

17. (3) Jeremy Hill, CIN (RB10) — His yards per carry is concerning, but Hill is seeing a massive workload with Giovani Bernard on injured reserve.

18. (3) Larry Fitzgerald, ARI (WR8) — Only Antonio Brown and Mike Evans have seen more targets this season.

19. (0) Amari Cooper, OAK (WR9)

20. (2) Jay Ajayi, MIA (RB11) — He’s still running hard but gets another tough matchup this week against the Cards.

21. (4) Doug Baldwin, SEA (WR10) — Green Bay struggles against the pass, so Baldwin gets an upgrade this week.

22. (-9) Jordan Howard, CHI (RB12) — Howard exploded against the 49ers last week and gets another strong matchup against Detroit.

23. (1) Thomas Rawls, SEA (RB13) — Rawls exploded on Sunday night, but faces a tough Packers run defense.

24. (-1) Latavius Murray, OAK (RB14)

25. (-7) Julian Edelman, NE (WR11) — With Rob Gronkowski banged up and/or out of the lineup, Edelman has seen 38 targets over the last three weeks.

26. (1) Golden Tate, DET (WR12) — Tate is coming off a massive Week 13 performance and remains a strong play agianst the Bears.

27. (18) Tyrell Williams, SD (WR13) — Williams gets a fantastic matchup against a suspect Panthers’ secondary.

28. (2) Frank Gore, IND (RB15) — The old man continues to see heavy volume and remains a low upside RB2.

29. (2) Brandin Cooks, NO (WR14) — The Saints receivers can be tricky, but Cooks remains the highest upside play.

30. (-2) Carlos Hyde, SF (RB16) — San Francisco is one of the worst teams in the league, but Hyde continues to post RB2 numbers.

35. (12) Robert Kelley, WAS (RB18)

36. (-2) Donte Moncrief, IND (WR17) — All Moncrief does is score touchdowns. He’s found the end zone in six of his seven games this season.

38. (-6) Tyler Eifert, CIN (TE2)

39. (5) Emmanuel Sanders, DEN (WR18)

43. (0) LeGarrette Blount, NE (RB21) — Last week was a Blount game script, but he may struggle a bit this week against the Ravens.

44. (-8) Brandon Marshall, NYJ (WR21) — Bryce Petty under center doesn’t help Marshall’s cause, but he still has upside as a WR2.

47. (-14) Doug Martin, TB (RB22)

51. (-11) Mark Ingram, NO (RB24) — Ingram was downgrade in Thursday’s practice. His Week 14 status is very much up in the air.

52. (8) Kenny Britt, LA (WR25) — Britt has scored in each of the last two weeks.

61. (3) Jerick McKinnon, MIN (RB27)

62. (-8) Sammy Watkins, BUF (WR31) — He saw nine targets last week, but reamins a very risky fantasy start due to the foot injury.

65. (9) Allen Robinson, JAC (WR32)

66. (19) Greg Olsen, CAR (TE5)

70. (0) Rishard Matthews, TEN (WR35)

78. (-7) Dontrelle Inman, SD (WR39)

79. (-6) Ladarius Green, PIT (TE7) — The breakout happened last week, and Green now should now be considered a TE1 for the rest of the season.

82. (2) Willie Snead, NO (WR41)

83. (0) Matt Asiata, MIN (RB35)

84. (-3) Tyler Boyd, CIN (WR42)

85. (-6) Zach Ertz, PHI (TE8) — Another tight end on the rise, Ertz is a strong play this week.

86. (2) Randall Cobb, GB (WR43) — Cobb continues to fade. It’s tough to trust him as anything more than a WR4 at this point.

87. (0) T.J. Yeldon, JAC (RB36)

88. (11) Ted Ginn, CAR (WR44)

89. (11) Eric Ebron, DET (TE9)

90. (0) Anquan Boldin, DET (WR45)

91. (4) Rex Burkhead, CIN (RB37) — He’s still just a handcuff, but Burkhead is worth stashing on your bench.

94. (-8) Sterling Shepard, NYG (WR47)

(It’s PFF Fantasy’s free content week. Keep up with all our free offerings here.)

103. (7) Jacquizz Rodgers, TB (RB42) — Rodgers could see some more work as a runner, but not enough to warrant a start.

106. (6) Tyler Lockett, SEA (WR52)

114. (23) Chris Ivory, JAC (RB45)

115. (11) Robby Anderson, NYJ (WR56) — There’s upside with Anderson. He’s worth a desperation dart in deep leagues.

117. (-24) Quincy Enunwa, NYJ (WR57)

118. (14) Chris Thompson, WAS (RB46)

120. (-7) Will Fuller, HOU (WR58)

121. (-5) Martellus Bennett, NE (TE16) — Injuries have slowed Bennett over the second half of the season. It’s tough to trust him as a fantasy starter.

122. (13) Josh Bellamy, CHI (WR59)

123. (-1) Jeremy Maclin, KC (WR60)

124. (NR) Jordan Reed, TE (WAS) — He’s still very much up in the air for this week, but he did get limited work in practice.

126. (1) Mohamed Sanu, ATL (WR62)

127. (13) Kenny Stills, MIA (WR63)

146. (-2) Jermaine Kearse, SEA (WR72)

150. (0) Charcandrick West, KC (RB54)
