Week 12 flex ranks: It's crunch time!

We're here today to help you with that. Below you'll find the flex rankings for Week 12, combining the best of the running backs, wide receivers and tight ends into one tidy package.

Got questions? If so, we're here to help, and if the flex rankings below aren't enough or you want other opinions, check through the loads of information we provide in columns, blogs, chats, video, podcasts and more.
