Week 11 flex ranks: WRs overcome new QBs

Quarterbacks aren’t eligible for the ESPN flex position and thus do not appear in the weekly flex rankings, but with a whole lot of change at this critical spot this week, it certainly can affect weapons. Just don’t overthink things too much. Check out Denver and Dallas and Indianapolis and Houston and … my advice in general is to remember these are all NFL-caliber quarterbacks, to varying degrees, and most top wide receivers will still get their numbers. Yes, the Steelers’ Antonio Brown was an outlier in his small sample size sans Ben Roethlisberger, but as you’ll see below, I don’t regard that as a trend. Enjoy the Week 11 flex rankings and may your teams thrive regardless of quarterback.

1. Adrian Peterson, RB, Vikings: Should pass the 1,000-yard rushing mark this week, and he’s the No. 2 running back for the season. Pretty safe guy.
