These matchups are based on yards allowed, according to Football Outsiders’ defense against receiver types chart. In some cases, the matchups are more reliable because they match up with FO’s Defense-adjusted Value Over Average statistic, which adds in a number of non-fantasy statistics, but is a good indicator about how a team focuses (or loses [...]

What? These are just your average, everyday flex rankings with Andre Holmes in the top-10. *nervous laugh* This list is likely to see changes once I adjustments for matchups, but the biggest changes will be in the PPR statistics. Most of my adjustments are made based on defenses’ success/failure against types of wide receivers.
Our new Las Vegas factor vaulted Le’Veon Bell near the top of our rankings this week. Houston hasn’t been great against the run, but they have moved into the bottom 10 for receiving running backs, so Bell’s reception numbers may need to be dialed down a bit.
