Fantasy Football Week 1: Flex Appeal

What week is it? I know the calendar says it's the first week in September which is the most anticipated week of the year. Although it's only Week 1, the injury report suggests it's Week 8.

Arian Foster, Maurice Jones-Drew, Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch and Trent Richardson are all beginning the season as major question marks.

Foster was pulled from practice on Thursday, didn't practice on Friday and is now listed as a game-time decision. Marshawn Lynch hasn't practiced all week due to back spasms but came back on Friday and is also listed as a game-time decision. Peterson, MJD and Richardson have been questionable for most of the preseason. MJD's availability isn't as much injury related as it is ignorance related, but it's the same kind of headache.

For a position that is about as deep as a puddle on a Seattle sidewalk to be in as much uncertainty as it is, the waiver wire is suddenly more important than it ever has been for Week 1. And it makes this week's flex appeal that much more interesting.

The following slides hold the answers to filling in the most volatile position in fantasy football: the flex.  If you're not satisfied or need last minute assistance, Twitter is your friend: @justinbonnema
