Fantasy football flex rankings for Week 2

It looks like Royce Freeman has some unexpected competition in the Broncos' backfield. Should you be concerned? Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty Images

We laughed, we cried, and we presumably learned quite a bit in Week 1 of the 2018 fantasy season. Now it is time for Week 2, and while some of the names below might not look like they deserve similar placement to last week, it was, after all, only one week. One game.

If you liked Denver Broncos rookie Royce Freeman all summer long, then that should not have changed after one game in which he really did not play so badly. Travis Kelce and Josh Gordon and myriad others need more targets. They might get them in Week 2.

Regardless, here we go again. Let us flex!

1. Todd Gurley II, RB, Los Angeles Rams: Not his greatest performance, but if 23.7 PPR points is average, then sign us up.
2. Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints: The top scorer in Week 1, and that includes the quarterbacks. Wait until he gets more rushing attempts.
