Flex rankings: Falcons ranked favorably

Someone posed an interesting question last week on Twitter about these flex rankings, and my answer is worth sharing with everyone: The reason we don't simply start the rankings with say, No. 10 at running back and wide receiver is because we just don't know where that line is with fantasy teams, and we shouldn't leave any options out. Take this week, for example, with Arian Foster not being in the top spot. In theory, someone could own the two running backs ranked ahead of Foster this week, and would have to consider sitting the Houston Texans' stud if his active roster limit was two running backs.

That's unlikely, of course, but it's still possible, and it's why we don't simply start our top 100 list with the likes of Rashad Jennings or Andre Johnson. We have to make sure all the worthy flex options are properly ranked.
