Week 18 Fantasy Football Rankings: Flex (RB/WR/TE)

Welcome to Week 18 of the fantasy football season!

While most fantasy championships have been decided, there are still plenty of folks who roll right through the end of the regular season. For those folks, here are my final player rankings for the 2023 season. As always. I’ve used a full-point PPR scoring system.

At Sports Illustrated, we always have you covered!

Among the running backs, Jonathan Taylor is at the top with Christian McCaffrey out of action. Devin Singletary is ranked highly due to a plus matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, and I like Elijah Mitchell to be a fantasy contributor against the Los Angeles Rams with CMC on the sidelines. I also like Tony Pollard this week, despite his recent statistical struggles, against the Washington Commanders.

At wide receiver, CeeDee Lamb tops the list with an amazing matchup against an NFC East rival. Nico Collins is in the top 10, while Stefon Diggs is out of that space for the second straight week after another stinker. George Pickens and Brandin Cooks have moved up the rankings, but I’ve left Rashee Rice and the San Francisco 49ers’ top receivers off the list as the team has nothing to play for this weekend.

At tight end, I’ve left Travis Kelce off the list as the Kansas City Chiefs are unlikely to use their starters. Dallas Goedert moves way up against the New York Giants, and Juwan Johnson is a top-10 option after three straight weeks of solid production.

Be sure to check back for updates … and good luck this week!
