Week 9 flex ranks: New names to learn

So many changes to fantasy rosters this week, as owners have had to part with valuable-but-injured assets, and that’s the conundrum facing many. Plenty of owners just don’t possess enough depth, especially in a week with six teams on bye. The timing could not have been worse unless it was the actual fantasy playoffs. Might you need to rely on a player that hasn’t really played much? Best of luck with your Week 9 flex decisions, and if you have to go with one of the fill-in running backs or wide receivers for your active roster, then so be it.
