Home / Commentary / FLEX APPEAL: Week 3


Week 2 brought carnage to all of our fantasy teams, didn’t it? We have a lot of players out in Week 3, with some really big names missing from our lineups. With that, we have some tough flex decisions for Week 3! The key is making sure you make those right flex decisions. For those who are new here, every week I will help you by looking at the Expert Consensus Rankins (ECR) to make these decisions a little easier on the Sharks. Let’s go ahead and look at some RB3, RB4, WR4 and WR5 types you can flex during Week 3. Let’s get “flexy,” shall we?

Running Backs

Joshua Kelley, LAC (vs. Carolina)

Death, taxes, and start running backs against the Panthers. Kelley saw a whopping 25 touches in Week 2, and he could come close to that number this week. The rookie has 163 total yards on the season, and he will add to that total in a big way in Week 3. If you have Kelley, he needs to be in your lineups for this contest.

Mike Davis, CAR (at Los Angeles Chargers)

On the other side of the ball, Davis can contribute in a big way this week. He only saw 1 carry in Week 2, but he did have an insane 8 catches in that game. The man has hands, and the Panthers will be forced to utilize the veteran as much as possible. The Chargers are not an imposing matchup, and this game should be close. Go ahead and flex the waiver wire darling in Week 3.

Darrell Henderson, LAR (at Buffalo)

With Malcolm Brown and Cam Akers nursing injuries, Henderson should be the lead dog for the undefeated Rams. He killed it in Week 2, totaling 121 yards and a touchdown against a tough Eagles rush defense. Yes, Buffalo is a tough matchup as well, but that won’t matter this week. He was the preseason darling for the Rams before his injury, so this isn’t speculation. Flex the young back with confidence in Week 3.

Jeff Wilson, SF (at New York Giants)

Need a desperation flex for Week 3? Look no further than Wilson, who should be getting the majority of the 1st and 2nd down work, to go along with all of the goal line action. Wilson is a bit of a plodder, but that doesn’t matter against the hapless Giants. Again, this is risky, but you will be surprised (in a good way) when you see the end result.
