    Where would Zach Ertz be in your rankings this week?

    • Erik Smith says:

      If he was 100% and a full workload, right around TE8 or 9. If he’s playing but limited, more like TE12. I do like him this year, but I’d like to see him practicing and playing first if possible.

  2. Eugene Purdy says:

    I am curious to see how Mo Alie-Cox does against Houston. Obviously he is outside your top 25 but something tells me he might finish just outside the top 10 by the end of the year (similar to what Dawson Knox did last year) despite Matt Ryan being known for ignoring TEs. Any thoughts?

    cousins or ryan? is it a 50/50 toss up this week?

    • Ryan Heath says:

      It is close to a tossup, but I prefer Cousins slightly. I definitely wouldn’t burn a roster spot just to play one guy over the other this week. Prefer Cousins’ season-long upside.

  4. Jim says:

    Any chance you could make Flex rankings in the future?
