So by now you've filled all of your other spots and you're down to the FLEX spot. If you've got any amount around or over $5000 you've got plenty of options, so let's make it a little more difficult and assume you only have $3,000, which is the minimum amount for any position player. If you are in this situation you should have some very solid guys at the other positions. There are quite a few options so I'm going to hit on each of them quickly. All of these guys are $3,000.
Robinson has had some great games and just hasn't found the end zone. This might be the last game before Mark Ingram comes back which could be more motivation for Robinson to do well.
Who knows what's going on with the Ravens running back situation. But Taliaferro is a part of it and he looks to be the most athletic of the bunch. If Bernard Pierce is out, Taliaferro will get some good opportunities.
Hill will take a back seat to Gio Bernard unless Bernard gets hurt, but that doesn't mean Hill can't be valuable for you. The Bengals will likely try and do what the Chiefs just did to the Patriots and that means more opportunity for Hill.
This is strictly a pick based on the volume that this player will get. He's going to start in the Panthers backfield and will get his touches. This should be a high scoring game and somebody has to run the ball for the Panthers.
Jacksonville will be playing catch up all day and somebody will have to catch the ball. Bortles doesn't look bad and the Jags should be able to score some points against the Steelers.
Odell Beckham Jr.
Make sure he's active and if he is he might do something for you. The Giants have figured out some things lately and the weak Atlanta defense will do whatever they can (which won't be much) to stop Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle which should leave Beckham with some chances.
Atlanta is terrible against the run and although Williams doesn't get as many chances as Rashad Jennings he should get some and could break off a few good runs.
If Arian Foster is out, Blue is a RB2, at worst, for $3000.
Wilson moves into the lineup with the injury to Zach Miller. Russell Wilson will find him if he needs him. Could score.
Won't get the bulk of the carries, but could do well with the carries he does get against the terrible run defense of Jacksonville.
Don't know if you want to fill your FLEX spot with a tight end, but the price on this guy is ridiculous. He's easily a TE1 for the rest of the year. The Chiefs have to get him the ball to have a chance to win.
Another TE, Harbor caught all eight passes thrown to him last week and Jacksonville will be playing catch up all day.
Has caught a touchdown each of the last two weeks.
