Week 3 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 and use your own judgment to determine who you should consider starting.

Week 3 highlight: Last year, Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd was buried on the team's stat sheet behind the likes of Vincent Jackson and Antonio Gates. But with Jackson out of the picture in San Diego, Floyd has assumed a big role as Philip Rivers' most valuable wide receiver. The stats say as much through two weeks as Floyd has six catches for 143 yards and a touchdown with a WR-corps best 16 targets. The 23.8 receiving yard average will be next to impossible to keep up, but he could easily be the Chargers' big-play option who will see lots of single coverage so long as Gates is roaming the middle of the field and freezing safeties. Don't be surprised if he scores again in Week 3 against a Seahawks defense that was bombarded by the pass last week by the Broncos.

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