Every week fantasy football owners have tough decisions to make. Whether it is who to start in their FLEX spot or if they should start a less quality player against a weaker defense. This year Breaking Football offers its advice from two of its best fantasy writers. Between myself (@MikeSports22) and Rob Rose (@RobRoseSports), we have come up with our combined weekly rankings based on PPR scoring.

Editor’s note: Thanks to Hurricane Irma the Buccaneers/Dolphins week one game has been moved to week 11.
