With bye weeks now a distant memory -- OK, it's been only a week, but how nice it is to have everyone playing -- how can a fantasy football team not have strong options for the flex position between running back, wide receiver and tight end? I mean, this is the stretch run of your fantasy football regular season, with the trade deadline closing in, and the playoffs less than a month away. This is what it's all about!

Of course, injuries have taken a potentially large bite out of some of the options you wanted to count on this week, so that's a problem, but if you've managed your team wisely this season, punting the draft-day options that never worked out and strengthened your bench, made hard decisions about backup running backs you might not have room for, as well as backup kickers, tight ends and defenses, you should be OK for this week. Maybe you have to use Ladell Betts or Steve Breaston, but things could be worse. There could be six teams on bye.
