The bye weeks really haven’t hurt fantasy owners much to this point, and this week shouldn’t be any different. After all, we’ll miss a few New Orleans Saints players, but the Oakland Raiders weren’t providing much. But after this week, the flex rankings, in which we combine the best of the running backs, wide receivers and tight ends, will look a lot different. In Weeks 8 and 9, there are a combined 12 teams on bye. That’s a big deal. So enjoy these Week 7 flex ranks, flourished with depth, and hopefully this helps with your decisions. It might not be this much fun to sift through choices again until November!

Feel free to use all awesome information presented to you by the ESPN fantasy staff to augment your decisions -- not make them for you -- and if you still have questions or a unique scoring system, try us on Twitter or in our many chats. As for my Wednesday chat session, here is the link. And here are the staff rankings.
