This week’s Friday FLEX comes with a special announcement. Starting next season this will be renamed the “Friday Flier of the Week” as this article really focuses on a deep, deep dart throw. So, with that let us get back to business.

Here is a list of others to consider this week: Gus Edwards (RB, Baltimore Ravens), Lynn Bowden (RB/WR, Miami Dolphins), Wiilie Snead (WR, Baltimore Ravens), Jeff Wilson (RB, San Francisco 49ers)

The Fantasy Football Friday FLEX is where we name our FLEX Play of the Week. And for Week 15 the FLEX Play of the Week is…

FLEX Play of the Week: Rashard Higgins, WR, Cleveland Browns

All of a sudden Rashard Higgins is being mentioned in contract extension talks due to his emergence as the WR2 in Cleveland after the injury to Odell Beckham. And why not? He showed up on Monday Night Football and registered 6 catches for 68 yards and a score on 10 targets; which were a team-high. Higgins scored and had 95 yards the week before. He gets the New York Giants and their starting CB James Bradberry as has been deemed a close contact encounter with COVID-19. Bradberry is the best Giants DB and not having him is a major green light for Higgins and his outlook this week. Higgins is a solid part of the passing game and it seems he and Baker Mayfield have a nice little thing going on. In the past 2 weeks, Higgins has seen 19 total targets and nabbed 2 touchdowns. Even though the game script could certainly favor the Browns running backs, Mayfield has been eyeing Higgins in the red zone. 

Production Prediction: 7 catches for 96 yards and 1 TD
