RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders (undisclosed) is not on the depth chart for Saturday's game against the Lions, and was placed on the six-game injured reserve list.

Flanders will miss this weekend's contest with an undisclosed injury after leaving last Friday's game due to the setback. He wasn't able to practice at all during the week, and will be out for the foreseeable future while recovering from this injury.

October 12, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders sat out practice again Thursday while nursing a hamstring injury, Darrin Bauming of TSN Radio 1290 reports.

Flanders is doubtful to play Saturday against the Lions after sitting out for the third consecutive practice. The running back's status will be determined when the team releases the depth chart Friday, but it's unlikely that he will be back on the field before next weekend's game in Toronto.

October 11, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders did not practice Wednesday, Bob Irving of AM 680 CJOB reports.

There hasn't been any word on the running back's status or the reason he did not take part in practice for the second straight day at this point in time. Moving forward, it appears up in the air as to whether Flanders will be ready to go for Saturday's game against BC, but should be revealed near the end of the week.

October 10, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders did not take part in Tuesday's practice, Darrin Bauming of TSN Radio 1290 reports.

It's not clear why Flanders sat out Tuesday, but he left Friday's game and did not return, so it seems he is dealing with some sort of injury. His Week 17 status will be determined later this week.

October 6, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders rushed twice of two yards and added three receptions for 18 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 30-13 loss to the Tiger-Cats.

The reserve running back saw minimal opportunity on the ground but was able to make an impact through the air, notching his second receiving touchdown in the last three games. Flanders has between three and seven catches in four of the last five contests, making him a relatively modest but productive part of the passing game. He'll look to continue contributing in Week 17 against the Stampeders.

October 1, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders rushed five times for 12 yards and totaled six receptions for 34 yards in Saturday's 28-19 win over the Eskimos.

Flanders drew another start at slotback and turned in serviceable production, particularly through the air, as he pushed his two-week reception total to 11. The 26-year-old Sam Houston State product should continue seeing plenty of playing time, particularly as long as Weston Dressler (upper body) remains out. He'll look to up his contributions against the Tiger-Cats in Week 16.

September 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders gained 55 yards on seven rushes and added five receptions for 28 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 29-9 win over the Redblacks.

Flanders was an excellent complement to Andrew Harris out of the backfield despite technically playing the role of slotback, posting a season-high number of carries and rushing yards. The five receptions and receiving touchdown -- his second of the season -- served to round out his fantasy production nicely. Flanders certainly profiles as a cost-effective DFS option for as long as he retains a starting role. He'll look to keep it going against the Eskimos in Week 15.

September 21, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders is listed as a starting slotback for Friday's game against the Redblacks.

Flanders -- listed on the roster as a running back -- has essentially played a slotback role for a few weeks, according to Ed Tait of BlueBombers.com, but this week he will officially do so. Flanders averaged just over six touches per game over the last five contests, and he figures to play a similar role in Week 14.

September 3, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders notched seven receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-24 loss to the Riders. He also rushed twice for eight yards.

The Sam Houston State product had an atypical role in the passing game, notching season highs in receptions and receiving yards, along with his first score through the air this season. Flanders doesn't see much action on the ground in his reserve role behind Andrew Harris, limiting his fantasy utility overall. However, he's certainly capable of performances like Sunday when getting enough touches. It remains to be seen if he'll get the same opportunity in the Week 12 rematch versus the Riders at home.

September 1, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders will remain in the lineup for Sunday's matchup against the Roughriders, Darrin Bauming of TSN reports.

While Andrew Harris will likely continue to see the bulk of the team's carries, Flanders' presence in the lineup means he'll be first in line when Harris needs a breather. During Week 10's game against the Alouettes, Flanders saw four carries and totaled 16 yards.

August 18, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders carried the ball six times for 45 yards and caught two passes for 26 yards in Thursday's 33-26 win over Edmonton.

Andrew Harris was busy racking up 225 yards from scrimmage in this one, but Flanders kept the offense humming on the occasions when Harris needed a breather. The 25-year-old has seen more touches in the last couple of games, but as long as Harris is healthy Flanders won't see enough action to have consistent fantasy value.

August 3, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders will likely be active for Friday's game against the Redblacks, Jeff Hamilton of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

Flanders has been a healthy scratch for each game this season, but signs are pointing to him suiting up Friday with two of his teammates expected to be scratched. With top running back Andrew Harris healthy and playing Friday it's not clear what type of role Flanders would fill if active, but he would at least provide another option for the Winnipeg offensive attack.

July 27, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders is inactive for Thursday's game against the Alouettes.

Flanders has often been a game-day scratch this season, which is the case here once more. As a result, Andrew Harris figures to be busy in the back field, per usual.

July 13, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders was scratched from the lineup for Thursday's game against the Argonauts.

Flanders has regularly been a game-day scratch this year, and that will be the case again in Week 4. Andrew Harris figures to be busy in the backfield like he usually is.

July 7, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders will not participate in Friday's game against the Stampeders.

After not getting a carry during the season opener and then being scratched for Saturday's game, Flanders has been labeled inactive for Friday's matchup. It's unclear when, or if, he will get significant playing time with Andrew Harris locked in as Winnipeg's top running back.

July 1, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders was scratched ahead of Saturday's game against the Roughriders, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Flanders didn't get a touch in the season opener, so this shouldn't be devastating to any fantasy teams. He was able to post 407 all-purpose yards in three 2016 games, but that was when No. 1 back, Andrew Harris sat out with injury. Don't expect much, if any, production unless Harris is injured again.

June 16, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders had four carries for 62 yards and a touchdown and also added three receptions for 37 yards in the Blue Bombers' exhibition finale Thursday.

Flanders made the most of his seven touches in what will likely be the most action he sees for a while. Flanders is set to serve as the Blue Bombers' No. 2 back behind Andrew Harris, but when Harris is healthy Flanders will play sparingly, if at all. However, if Harris misses any action, Flanders can step in and provide similar production: over the three games Harris sat out in 2016, Flanders posted an impressive 407 total yards.

November 4, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders was scratched from the lineup for Friday's game against the Redblacks, Darrin Bauming of TSN 1290 reports.

The Blue Bombers will go with only Andrew Harris at the tailback position in their regular season finale. Flanders should be available for the team's postseason run, but it remains to be seen if he will suit up.

October 29, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders is a healthy inactive for Saturday's matchup with Ottawa.

Flanders has had some quality performances this season when he was forced into a larger role due to injuries, but with starter Andrew Harris healthy and at full health the team decided to sit Flanders.

October 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders carried the ball 12 times for 65 yards while catching five passes for 63 yards in Friday's loss to the Eskimos.

The second-year player has looked very good since stepping into the starting lineup in place of the injured Andrew Harris (ankle), gaining 262 rushing yards and 145 receiving yards over the last three games while scoring twice. With Harris' status still up in the air, Flanders should again be a key part of the Bombers' offense next Saturday at home against the Lions.

September 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders will start in Friday's game.

Due to an ankle injury sustained by Andrew Harris, Flanders will start in his third straight game on Friday against the Edmonton Eskimos.

September 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders practiced with the Blue Bombers' starters Tuesday, Darrin Bauming of TSN 1290 reports.

Fellow running back Andrew Harris (lower body) practiced Tuesday after missing the last two weeks, but he did not get much work in, and is not a lock to play in Week 15. Harris' status will be determined later this week, and if he remains sidelined, Flanders would get another start in his place. He had a lot of success in that role over the last two weeks, totaling 197 yards on the ground and 82 yards through the air.

September 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders gained 95 yards and scored a touchdown on 11 rushes while adding 48 yards on six receptions in Saturday's 36-34 loss to the Stamps.

Filling in once again for Andrew Harris (lower body), Flanders turned in his second consecutive productive performance, which featured a kick-starting 50-yard touchdown scamper late in the first half that awoke the Bombers' offense from a slumber. Winnipeg had been on the wrong end of a 24-0 score at that point, but Flanders' run served to lay the foundation for what would be a furious and nearly successful second-half comeback. The former Sam Houston State star has proven himself to be a versatile asset through his two weeks of filling in for Harris, and given his production, could certainly retain an important role even after the latter returns from injury.

September 23, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders will get the start against Calgary on Saturday with Andrew Harris (lower body) ruled out for the game, the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

Flanders was a beast in place of Harris against the Argos last week, ripping off 102 rushing yards and a touchdown on top of 34 yards on four receptions. He'll face a much tougher test against a Stampeders team that has allowed the fewest points against (260) heading into Week 14.

September 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders tallied 102 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries while adding 34 yards on four receptions in Saturday's 46-29 victory over the Argos.

Making the start in place of the injured Andrew Harris (lower body), the 24-year-old exploded in what was his first taste of game action from scrimmage this season. Flanders averaged a whopping 5.2 yards per tote and his two-yard score early in the fourth quarter snapped a 29-29 tie. If Harris' injury persists into Week 14, the Blue Bombers' ground attack appears to be in good hands.

September 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders will start against the Argonauts on Saturday since Andrew Harris has been ruled out with a lower-body injury.

Flanders is an inexperienced running back, having picked up only three carries in four games since 2015, but now he gets the chance to be featured in a white-hot Bombers offense that has scored at least 28 points in three of the past four games.

September 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders is listed on the 46-man roster ahead of Saturday's game against the Argonauts, Darrin Bauming of TSN 1290 Radio reports.

Starting tailback Andrew Harris (lower body) will be a game-time decision, leaving Flanders as an insurance option. If Harris does suit up, there's a good chance that Flanders serves as a healthy scratch.

July 7, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders is not on the depth chart for the Blue Bombers' Week 3 matchup with the Tiger-Cats.

After spending the first two weeks of the season in a backup role, Flanders has now been removed from the depth chart altogether. The Blue Bombers will go with Andrew Harris and Pascal Lochard at running back on Thursday, with Harris getting the start. Flanders has yet to record a single stat this season and that trend will continue if he remains off the depth chart.

June 23, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Flanders will remain in a backup role for the season opener against Montreal on Friday, according to Bob Irving of CJOB radio. This accompanies the news that Andrew Harris will start Friday despite a recent hamstring injury.

Flanders was shaping up to be a nice value play in daily fantasy as the clear replacement for Harris, but the latter evidently is no worse for the wear after sustaining a hamstring injury in practice Tuesday. Still, Flanders beat out Carlos Anderson with a strong showing in preseason and would be an attractive play if he ever needs to take over for Harris during a game.

Flanders could start at running back in Friday's season opener against Montreal with Andrew Harris questionable with a hamstring injury, the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
