The semifinals of the fantasy playoffs begin in most leagues this week, and thanks to injuries and a never-ending list of players on the reserve/COVID-19 list, you’ll have to dive deep into our Week 16 superflex and flex rankings for your final start ’em, sit ’em decisions. We thought we’d have close to a full complement of guys to fill our rankings when bye weeks ended, but this obviously won’t be the case. It can be difficult to know who to start in one of your flex spots as you compare potential sleepers from multiple positions, but that’s what these rankings are here to help with.

The pecking order and positional breakdowns for both standard flex and superflex are pretty clear at this point, though matchups, health, and trends keep the individual players fluid from week-to-week. We have explained each week why you should be starting a QB in your superflex spot over a fringe player at another position, but Tyler Huntley’s Week 15 performance should be all you need to look at to understand why. There might be a few rare instances where you’d rather play a position player in a superflex spot, but generally, just go with a QB and don’t overthink it. By now, we hope you know how these leagues work and won’t riot when you see Baker Mayfield ranked ahead of D.J. Moore.

As always, we also have our standard flex rankings, which, unlike positional rankings, are most important from the middle to the end. We have plenty of WRs toward the bottom of the list because they have the higher ceilings, but if you’re looking for a higher floor, at least in standard leagues, you should consider an RB who gets more guaranteed touches. Injuries to key running backs have opened the door to backfield committees, which creates more low-ceiling but viable RB prospects.

WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

We’ll continue to update these superflex and flex rankings throughout the week, so check back for the latest player movement.
