Week 1 Top 150s

Not all leagues are created equal, and not all of them have starting spots designated for Flex players. But for those that do, we offer two versions of our Top 150 rank lists: One for standard formats and one for PPR formats. You might notice some peculiar rankings here, and that's because these are based solely from my weekly projections -- not an average of multiple points of view. So if a tight end is projected to get 20 yards and a touchdown, he'll be equal to a quality running back projected for 80 total yards. Thus, use these rankings as a starting point for your weekly research, not a definitive source.

Week 1 highlight: You'll find Cadillac Williams ranked among the Top 12 overall in standard formats. His matchup vs. the Browns makes him a candidate to put up close to 100 total yards with a touchdown. We don't expect Williams to see many matchups like this all year, and with his track record as it pertains to injuries there's no telling how long he'll be upright. It's recommended that he is at least considered for starting lineups because of these factors.

Look out for our Flex rankings every Tuesday throughout the season, with daily updates as necessary.
