Week 6 Fantasy FLEX rankings

Sporting News — (Sporting News)

Week 6 fantasy lineups aren't complete without putting the correct player in your FLEX spot. GIven all the choices, it's one of the toughest start 'em, sit 'em decisions you can make on a week-to-week basis, which is why . we have to give them their own rankings. Our Week 6 FLEX rankings can also help you make some tough NFL DFS picks, as you get a general sense of who we like and who we don't.

We've entered into the first week with four teams on bye, so there's a number of notable players missing in this week's rankings. Fantasy owners are without Frank Gore, John Brown, T.Y. Hilton, Marlon Mack, Eric Ebron, Allen Robinson, David Montgomery, Darren Waller, Josh Jacobs and more.

The absences of more players mean the bottom of this week's FLEX rankings is more barren than before, but some of those players might matter for fantasy leagues. Someone could be stuck playing Keke Coutee or Robby Anderson or Latavius Murray in their final lineup spot this week, and we've got your answer for which of those three players, and those around them, you'll want to start.

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Of course, you can check out our individual positional rankings for player analysis and comparison at just one position as you approach lineup lock time on Sunday. We've got it all right here in one place, though, if it's that FLEX spot you need to fill, so good luck!
