Quarterbacks to Pair for Superflex Dynasty Football

Look, they all can’t be winners. As Superflex leagues have begun to become the norm, managers have caught onto what is the most important position in dynasty football. And of course, they have. It only tracks with being the most important position in the NFL. Of course we’re talking about quarterbacks.

That unfortunately means that it’s not as easy to lock down two elite talents at the quarterback position. Instead, like most managers, you’re going to have to figure out how to get back with that Superflex spot.

A free trip to the NLF game of your choice for your entire fantasy football league? Sound too good to be true? It’s not. All you have to do is play fantasy football on Fantrax! See how you and your league can share the experience of a lifetime!

Quarterbacks to Pair In Superflex Dynasty Football Leagues

Two heads are better than one

I could get into a whole philosophical diatribe about quantity over quality but that can wait for another day. For now, it’s important to understand that, for the NFL or for dynasty football, strength is in numbers.

In a savvy superflex league, you can expect the price of a surefire starter whose capable of providing low-end QB1 numbers to be high.

Prying away QBs like Dak Prescott, Daniel Jones, or Tua Tagovailoa with ease is not likely.

Instead, it may be better to try to take advantage of one of the biggest predictors of success to fill the position: QB strength of schedule.

After all, next to TE, QB is known to be the second most impacted position by matchups. By pairing two quarterbacks who face weak pass defenses in different weeks, you can find plenty of production.

Quarterback Strength of Schedule Pairings

Aaron Rodgers, NYJ + Desmond Ridder, ATL

You might be thinking, why would I need to pair up Aaron Rodgers? He should be fine as my Superflex option on his own.

And it’s certainly true that the Packers just haven’t had pass catchers to support his arm talent. But just how much can we expect from the soon to be 40 year old?

Last season he played all 17 games and only mustered 3,695 yards. This is, of course, all while providing nothing on the ground.

While there will certainly be some great days throwing to Garrett Wilson, Allen Lazard, and Mecole Hardman aren’t much to write home about.

Roll with Ridder for the Championship

No, there will be days when you’d much rather run the much younger Ridder.

With fresher legs and a 4.52 40 time, Ridder is expected to run a lot in his first full-year audition with the Falcons. With very little to say he will be successful, Ridder might not have the job in the long run.

But in the short term, he has the job and he’s going cheap as people don’t necessarily believe he’ll keep it next year.

Expect him to suit up in Weeks 16 and 17 for juicy matchups against the Colts and Bears. Rodgers meanwhile will face off against one of 2022’s worst secondary units in the Dolphins for Week 15, though it will have to be seen if Jalen Ramsey transforms that backfield.

Derek Carr, NO + Jimmy Garoppolo, LV

These two are an absolute match made in heaven. Both are struggling QBs who failed to live up to their previous contracts and are now fighting for respect with decent-sized deals for new teams. And their schedules just couldn’t match up any better.

Both featuring top 10 QB strength of schedule for the season, Derek Carr has plus matchups for Weeks 1 (Titans), 8 (Colts), 9 (Bears), 10 (Vikings), and 13 (Lions). Carr also has his bye for Week 11.

Conveniently, after a stingy Week 1 opponent in the Broncos, Garoppolo has easy outings in Weeks 7 (Bears), 8 (Lions), 11 (Dolphins), 12 (Chiefs), 14 (Vikings), 16 (Chiefs), and 17 (Colts). He has his bye in week 13.

So, if you’re keeping track at home, by pairing these two QBs, you end up with a strong strength of schedule from weeks 7 – 14, and 16 – 17. They also cover each others’ byes with great matchups.

Saying nothing else about their abilities at this current juncture which, really, who’s to say, you can’t go wrong mixing and matching Carr and Garoppolo.

Jared Goff, DET + Kenny Pickett, PIT

Jared Goff was unbelievably a QB1 in all formats last year. It’s safe to say, at age 28.8 and 18th on KeepTradeCut for Dynasty Football QB rankings, not many people are buying the revival.

Likewise, the welcome committee has run out of gas on Kenny Pickett. He falls right at 19th, below Goff despite being 25.1 years old.

Both offer intriguing value on the right side of 30 still with non-zero chances of proving they’re the right option for their respective teams.

As for how the stars align on these non-stars, Jared Goff features good opponents for Week 1 (Chiefs), 8 (Raiders), 11 (Bears), 14 (Bears, again), and 16 (Vikings).

Pickett on the other hand may have one of the worst QB strength of schedule in the league. Still, he fills in for Goff’s Week 9 bye perfectly with a tilt against the Titans. Similarly, a Week 15 date against the Colts provides great coverage to kick off what is typically the first round of playoffs.

Goff will still likely be your QB most weeks, but Pickett could save the season when Goff has to face the Broncos in Week 15 and the Cowboys in Week 17.

Just remember to stick with your convictions. Don’t just start the player that got you there. Start the best QB for that week.
