RB/WR/TE flex

Hi all - first season using KUBIAK and it looks great. I'm no Excel expert, but is there an adjustment I can make to cater for the fact that the flex spot in my league is RB/WR/TE? I gather the built-in flex option only considers RB/WR.

Any help appreciated!

I wouldn't think that any TEs that would be available at flex would be better than the options at RB and WR.

I saw the part of the instruction that says that a QB/RB/WR flex spot should be treated as a QB spot as they will nearly always higher scoring. Just wasn't sure that the same would be true of RB/WR scoring higher (although thinking about it, if the top 12 are gone, maybe it's not likely that the lower tiers of TEs are going to be that high scoring).

Yeah, that's the thing. In most leagues, the type of TE that should be available at flex (starting at #13) is not going to be nearly as high-scoring as the equivalent RBs and WRs. If you have two elite TEs on your squad the you would obviously be willing to start the second one over a flex-level RB or WR, but you wouldn't need KUBIAK to tell you that.

See the commentary I posted in the 2 QB league thread. It'll give you step by step instructions to tweak Excel.

Thanks - I posted a question in that thread to make sure I've followed the instructions correctly. Please take a look if you have a second!
