Every week fantasy 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. I will be giving my fantasy followers my solo rankings based on PPR scoring. As an added bonus I will explain my favorite match up for each position. If you have more specific questions regarding fantasy football and my rankings, ask me on twitter (@MikeSports22) and as always happy hunting fantasy friends.
