Flex rankings for Week 11 of the fantasy season
We’re three weeks away from the playoffs. To help you dominate down the stretch, here’s this week’s edition of the flex rankings:
(Updated Nov. 18; changes from Wednesday’s rankings are noted in parentheses)
1. (0) Le’Veon Bell, PIT (RB1) — He’s seeing a massive workload and faces a Browns team that gives up the third-most fantasy points per game to opposing RBs. Giddy up.
2. (0) David Johnson, ARI (RB2) – The Vikings are a tough defense, but Johnson is in matchup-proof territory this season.
3. (0) Antonio Brown, PIT (WR1) — Following his 18-target outing in Week 10, Brown is now just two targets behind Mike Evans for the league lead.
4. (0) DeMarco Murray, TEN (RB3) — In PPR, only David Johnson has more fantasy points among running backs.
5. (3) Odell Beckham Jr., NYG (WR2) — Beckham is likely to see a shadow from Tracy Porter, but he’s coming off another strong performance in Week 10.
6. (0) Ezekiel Elliott, DAL (RB4) — Baltimore is currently the worst fantasy matchup for opposing running backs, but Elliott has shredded nearly every defense he’s faced.
7. (0) LeGarrette Blount, NE (RB5) — This one is all about the matchup. San Francisco is giving up fantasy points in buckets to opposing running backs.
8. (-3) A.J. Green, CIN (WR3) — He’s third among wide receivers in catches and second in yards.
9. (1) Spencer Ware, KC (RB6) — Last week was a tough matchup for Ware, but he gets back on track against a Bucs defense that has given up 100-plus yards to opposing running backs in 6-of-9 games.
10. (-1) LeSean McCoy, BUF (RB7) — Fresh off the bye week, McCoy should return to form as a strong fantasy option who figures to see 20-plus touches.
11. (0) Mike Evans, TB (WR4) — Don’t worry about last week. Evans is still a top-five fantasy wide receiver.
12. (0) T.Y. Hilton, IND (WR5) — The Colts return from bye and are set to do what they do: pass the ball a lot.
13. (0) Jay Ajayi, MIA (RB8) — Damien Williams got the touchdown, but Ajayi still touched the ball 20 times in Week 10.
14. (0) Frank Gore, IND (RB9) — The old man just keeps on trucking. Gore doesn’t have a massive ceiling, but his high floor puts him in the back-end RB1 conversation.
15. (1) Jordy Nelson, GB (WR6) — Josh Norman will likely be on Nelson, but he’s coming off a massive 18 targets in Week 10.
