If you’ve read Why the Flex Position Wins Championships, you know I treat it as the most important position on my roster. I would prefer to construct my team so that I’m sometimes forced to have a bad player in my RB2 or WR3 slot rather than in my Flex.

I also think it’s an area the RotoViz Game Level Similarity Projections are especially equipped to handle. As a result, I’m creating weekly Flex rankings using this unique RotoViz tool. If you’re playing a lot of weekly/daily games, these rankings can also help give you a sense of players who might be undervalued and available on the cheap. (Of course, the daily games apps are truly awesome at creating optimal lineups.)

For a fuller discussion of how the GLSP works and the flexibility it provides, please check the Week 3 Standard Rankings.
