Before we get to the list of the top 100 players overall in Week 16 (a list that can aid you in making “flex” calls), the ever-popular weekly disclaimer and handy tip.

The disclaimer is the same as always—there are no quarterbacks included here. If you play in a league with QB-eligible “superflex” spots, odds are good you’re going to want to have a quarterback in that spot even with the attrition that has hit that position.

The tip this week is simple—relax.

Yes, the stakes are high this week. In most leagues, a win in Week 16 means it’s on to the championship game—a chance to accomplish the goal set all the way back on draft day. But it can be tempting to start overthinking every decision and second-guess every call. Don’t fall prey to paralysis by analysis.

Also, and I cannot stress this enough, make the decision you want to make. This isn’t to say that research isn’t a good thing. Believe it or not, fantasy analysts like myself really do try to get things right. But if your gut screams that a player is listed too low here, to heck with what I (or anyone else) think.

I’m not going to celebrate if you win any more than I’ll mourn if you lose. The only person who has to live with the decisions you make this week is you.

So, make ones you can live with.
