Rather than simply just stretching, can exercises help to improve flexibility too?

So two examples I'm thinking of are:

  1. Romanian deadlifts to improve hamstring flexibility
  2. Chest flys to improve chest flexibility

These are two areas that are very tight for me, and I feel like doing stretches only gets me so far... when I do exercises like the above, I does feel like I'm getting a good stretch as I'm doing them, but I may just be imagining it.
