*** Week 1 FLEX Rankings Special Guest Ranker – since Mayo refuses to acknowledge Mark Ingram – Jake Ciely***

Note: These rankings are set to PPR scoring. However, beyond expected outlier players (Positive: Danny Woodhead, Justin Forsett, Darren Sproles. Negative: Alfred Morris, Jeremy Hill, LeGarrette Blount), the difference between the two scoring systems isn’t pronounced. So, outside of those identifiable players, my rankings between PPR and Standard scoring do not change. For more reading, Rich Hribar has the most detailed explanation of the differences between the two scoring systems
