By doing an in-depth Flex ranking article each week we are trying to help fantasy owners make better decisions about which player or position to go with at the flex spot. Our flex rankings are based on standard scoring and combine the three most common flex-eligible positions, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends into a single ranking sheet.

We use the Bruno Boys individual positional rankings as a baseline for determining a players point projection or value in the flex position. When two players grade out similarly as in the case of a running back and wide receiver, the running back will generally be the recommended play in standard scoring leagues. Why? It’s quite simple, really. Running backs tend to get more opportunities to touch the ball than either wide receivers or tight ends. The more touches a player gets, the greater his chances to put points on the board.
