It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time to breakout the flex fantasy football rankings for Week 10 of the 2019 NFL season. If you’re new to the concept of flex rankings, these are simply the combined overall rankings for running back, wide receiver, and tight end for each week during the fantasy football season.

This list is our initial rankings, but it will change a lot throughout the week. If you want all of the latest updates, then be sure to check our staff rankings page.

1. Christian McCaffrey, CAR @ GB (RB1) — McCaffrey is on a historic pace for fantasy purposes with the third-most fantasy points over the first eight games of any running back.

2. Dalvin Cook, MIN @ DAL (RB2) — Cook continues to get fed in the run-friendly Vikings offense.

3. Saquon Barkley, NYG @ NYJ (RB3) — Last week wasn't optimal, but Barkley is poised to bounce back in a favorable matchup.

4. Ezekiel Elliott, DAL vs MIN (RB4) — Elliott has hit his stride and looked fantastic against the Giants last week.

5. Michael Thomas, NO vs ATL (WR1) — He's on pace for 146 catches and gets to face the Falcons secondary. ‘Nuff said.

6. Alvin Kamara, NO vs ATL (RB5) — The bye week should have done a body good for Kamara. Expect him to return this week.

7. Aaron Jones, GB vs CAR (RB6) — Don't get too bogged down by last week's poor gamescript. Jones still has a high-end RB1 ceiling.

8. Chris Godwin, TB vs ARI (WR2) — Godwin draws a fantastic matchup this week and should get back to elite fantasy territory.

9. Mike Evans, TB vs ARI (WR3) — Despite a potential shadow from Patrick Peterson, Evans is on fire.

10. Nick Chubb, CLE vs BUF (RB7) — Kareem Hunt returns this week, but that doesn't mean you should downgrade Chubb.

11. Marlon Mack, IND vs MIA (RB8) — A favorable matchup and heavy workload mean good things for fantasy purposes.

12. Josh Jacobs, OAK vs LAC (RB9) — Oakland continues to lean heavily on Jacobs, and so should we.

13. Derrick Henry, TEN vs KC (RB10) — It isn't sexy, but Henry enters the week seventh among running backs in fantasy scoring.

14. Julio Jones, ATL @ NO (WR4) — Jones doesn't have the best draw this week, but we can expect a heavy workload with Mohamed Sanu out of the mix.

15. Le'Veon Bell, NYJ vs NYG (RB11) — Sure, last week wasn't great, but Bell still managed to finish as the No. 10 PPR running back.

16. Tyreek Hill, KC @ TEN (WR5) — Patrick Mahomes should be back this week, but it really doesn't matter who throws Hill the ball.

17. Cooper Kupp, LAR @ PIT (WR6) — Kupp is averaging a massive 7.3 catches per game.

18. Amari Cooper, DAL vs MIN (WR7) — The Viking secondary isn't anywhere near as intimidating of a matchup as it once was.

19. Kenny Golladay, DET @ CHI (WR8) — Detroit is firing on all cylinders in the passing game making Golladay a top-10 wide receiver play this week.

20. Tyler Lockett, SEA @ SF (WR9) — He's coming off a massive Week 9 performance, but does have a tough matchup against the 49ers.

21. Mark Ingram, BAL @ CIN (RB12) — This is a fantastic matchup for Ingram, but his lack of volume puts a cap on his upside.

22. Chris Carson, SEA @ SF (RB13) — Carson continues to be fed, but he's just on the outside of RB1 territory in this tough matchup.

23. Melvin Gordon, LAC @ OAK (RB14) — Gordon finally showed some signs of life last week and should be fired up as an RB2 play.

24. Tevin Coleman, SF vs SEA (RB15) — Matt Breida posted the better fantasy numbers last week, but Coleman is still the preferred options because of his role in the red zone.

25. Stefon Diggs, MIN @ DAL (WR10) — With Adam Thielen likely sidelined, Diggs is poised to see a big workload.

26. David Montgomery, CHI vs DET (RB16) — The rookie managed a decent fantasy day in a tough matchup last week.

27. George Kittle, SF vs SEA (TE1) — Tight end is no fun this season, but Kittle is one of the rare players at the position who continues to produce good fantasy numbers.

28. Hunter Henry, LAC @ OAK (TE2) — Henry is starting to heat up and now ranks 10th among tight ends in fantasy scoring despite only playing four games.

29. Davante Adams, GB vs CAR (WR11) — Adams got back on the field last week and saw a healthy 11 targets.

30. Jaylen Samuels, PIT vs LAR (RB17) — James Conner will likely be sidelined again this week, which means another full workload for Samuels in the passing game.

31. Todd Gurley, LAR @ PIT (RB18)

32. Keenan Allen, LAC @ OAK (WR12)

33. Allen Robinson, CHI vs DET (WR13)

34. David Johnson, ARI @ TB (RB19)

36. Devonta Freeman, ATL @ NO (RB21)

37. Austin Ekeler, LAC @ OAK (RB22)

46. Michael Gallup, DAL vs MIN (WR20)

47. Ronald Jones II, TB vs ARI (RB23) — Jones looks to have assumed lead duties in Tampa Bay, but it's still tough to trust him as anything more than a back-end RB2.

49. Mike Williams, LAC @ OAK (WR21)

50. Calvin Ridley, ATL @ NO (WR22)

51. Robert Woods, LAR @ PIT (WR23)

67. Jamison Crowder, NYJ vs NYG (WR33)

68. Matt Breida, SF vs SEA (RB28)

69. Kenyan Drake, ARI @ TB (RB29) — The Arizona backfield remains very fluid, but Drake is looking like more of a flex option with the possibility that David Johnson returns this week.

71. Robby Anderson, NYJ vs NYG (WR35)

72. Sammy Watkins, KC @ TEN (WR36)

75. Larry Fitzgerald, ARI @ TB (WR38)

76. Greg Olsen, CAR @ GB (TE8)

77. Kalen Ballage, MIA @ IND (RB31) — Ballage is now the lead back in Miami, but his lackluster play makes him a flex option at best.

86. Tarik Cohen, CHI vs DET (RB33)

87. Trey Edmunds, PIT vs LAR (RB34) — Edmunds surprisingly led the Steelers on the ground last week, but he still takes a back seat to Jaylen Samuels for fantasy purposes.

113. O.J. Howard, TB vs ARI (TE18)

117. Alexander Mattison, MIN @ DAL (RB39)

118. Nyheim Hines, IND vs MIA (RB40)
