Flex rankings for Week 10 of the fantasy season
Just one month remains before a lot of leagues enter the playoffs. To help you dominate down the stretch, here’s this week’s edition of the flex rankings:
(Updated Nov. 11; changes from Wednesday are noted in parentheses)
1. (0) David Johnson, ARI (RB1) — This one isn’t even fair. The 49ers have given up 200-plus rushing yards to opposing running backs in each of their last three games.
2. (0) Ezekiel Elliott, DAL (RB2) — He would have had a massive day last week if the Cowboys didn’t get out to such a big lead.
3. (5) Mike Evans, TB (WR1) — Evans has been cleared of the concussion protocol before this week’s contest against the Bears.
4. (0) Le’Veon Bell, PIT (RB3) — Though he hasn’t scored this season, Bell remains one of the most heavily used backs in the league.
5. (-2) Antonio Brown, PIT (WR2) — Big Ben isn’t 100 percent, but Brown still saw double-digit targets and found the end zone in Week 9.
6. (0) Melvin Gordon, SD (RB4) — Don’t look now, but one of last year’s biggest fantasy busts is leading all running backs in scoring.
7. (2) DeMarco Murray, TEN (RB5) — With Derrick Henry likely out, Murray is poised for a big workload in Week 10.
8. (-3) Julio Jones, ATL (WR3) — Jones remains an elite play against an Eagles secondary that gave up four scores to wide receivers last week.
9. (-2) Jay Ajayi, MIA (RB6) — Yep, he’s the real deal. Ajayi should be considered an RB1 for the rest of the season.
10. (3) Lamar Miller, HOU (RB7) — Houston’s offense spun it wheels over the first half of the season, but Miller averaged 21.9 touches per game.
11. (0) A.J. Green, CIN (WR4) — Only Mike Evans averages more targets per game.
12. (0) Odell Beckham Jr., NYG (WR5) — The Giants’ passing game got back on track somewhat last week. That certainly bodes well for Beckham’s fantasy owners.
13. (-3) Devonta Freeman, ATL (RB8) — Tevin Coleman has yet to practice this week. If he sits, Freeman will see another big workload.
14. (0) Matt Forte, NYJ (RB9) — Forte continues to see heavy volume. He now has 190 touches through the Jets’ first nine games.
15. (0) Alshon Jeffery, CHI (WR6) — Believe it or not, Jay Cutler under center is actually a good thing for Jeffery.
