The 2009 fantasy football season comes to an end this weekend, so here we go one more time with the flex rankings. They look pretty much the same as they tend to on a weekly basis: heavy at the top on running backs, with big-name wide receivers infiltrating the landscape in the top 20, tight ends weaving in and out. Hopefully, they've helped you out when a tough decision was lurking. What, you expected to see Devin Aromashodu ranked fifth overall? I just like saying that name over and over, by the way.

I'll be back with position-by-position rankings for the playoffs, as I know some of you -- me included -- participate in postseason leagues. Hey, what can I say, some of us just can't get enough. If you can't get a league going, check out ESPN Fantasy's Gridiron Playoff Challenge, which has already launched. A week from now I'll be blogging to remind you to get into the game and have some postseason fun.
