I would rip the boards wider then needed, so you can joint one edge flat.
Then you can edge plane them with the reference edge flat on the planer bed.

Lifting one end of the board to make contact with the cutterhead will not yield a straight board.

Hey Pinto,

I rip them 1/4 inch wide using a jig on the table saw, so they are straight when cut, but seem to move a bit. I wouldn’t say I’m lifting the board so much as re-positioning it. I would describe it as edge the first foot, then lift and move the board back onto infeed table and edge the first foot again. Once the cut is progressing further than the first couple inches, I could do the whole length.
