Week 16 flex rankings: Looking for good matchups 

December, 24, 2009
When in doubt, look at the matchup.

Really, at this time of the year, a number of teams certainly seem to be counting down the days until the season ends. If you have multiple good options for one flex spot, look at the matchups to sway the decision. For example, you'll see below that Michael Crabtree is one spot better than Maurice Morris. If you have them both for one spot, I think you have to trust the one meeting the Detroit Lions, not the one wearing that uniform.

Regardless of what you decide, look at the facts, use our rankings and projections to help guide you, and ultimately do what feels right to you. It's your team, and you're the one who must live with the decisions you make. If you think Jerome Harrison has another 286 rushing yards in him, by all means keep him active over someone like Pierre Thomas, who has needed his past six or seven games to get to that lofty rushing total. Whatever you decide, best of luck.
