Stewart, Shorts lead flex plays

Fortunately for owners, few significant players are out of action this week as the byes go to the 49ers, Jets, Patriots and Rams. Outside of the Patriots skill players, the toughest losses to overcome will be Frank Gore, Shonn Greene and the San Francisco defense/special teams.
