Avoid Starting a RB, WR, or TE in Your FLEX Position on Thursday Night Football

Starting a player in your FLEX position on Thursday Night Football leads to less roster flexibility. If you start someone in your FLEX early in the week, then the rest of your position players must start under their listed positions later in the week. Injuries, late-week scratches, and COVID-19 disqualifications can force fantasy managers to start a less-than-ideal RB, WR, or TE. If you follow this advice and shift your Thursday Night Football starter to RB, WR, or TE, then all of your bench players that play RB, WR, or TE are available as potential starters in the FLEX position on Sunday. (To be clear, start your best possible lineup. However, if you like three RBs in a given week, start the Thursday Night Football player at RB and shift one of your Sunday RBs to the FLEX position. The same rule applies to WRs and TEs.)

Many fantasy football teams will have active players in tonight's NFC West showdown between the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks. Keep this tip in mind when setting your lineup for the week. The NFL season is a battle of attrition. Try to keep your roster as flexible as possible.
