Superflex Dynasty Football Rankings: Post-NFL Draft Update
Many dynasty football leagues now play in a superflex format. There are stark contrasts in quarterback value versus other skill positions in superflex dynasty football rankings due to positional scarcity, so you’ll notice that I have many quarterbacks ranked higher overall. Beyond that, there are even nuances that change where quarterbacks are ranked within the position.
Quarterback age and starting longevity are far bigger priorities in superflex formats, which changes how I have quarterbacks ranked between the formats. In 1QB leagues, quarterback prospects with upside are coveted over safe starters because backup quarterbacks are rarely needed outside of injuries and bye weeks. However, in superflex leagues, consistent producers at QB2 and QB3 on dynasty rosters are necessary depth since it’s beneficial for the vast majority of teams start two quarterbacks every week.
The recent influx of a deep, talented 2020 rookie class and numerous free agent quarterback moves shake up dynasty football rankings quite a bit. Taking into account all the impacts of the various rookies on their respective teams, here are my updated top-200 ranked players assuming a superflex format with PPR scoring. I’ve limited comments to quarterbacks; for comments on other skill position players, you can reference my 1QB dynasty football rankings here.
Say what?! Your dynasty football league didn’t use Fantrax last year? Unthinkable! Check out all the features Fantrax has to offer, and we think you’ll be singing a different tune for the coming season.
Superflex Dynasty Football Rankings
Last updated on Monday, June 8th at 11:52 AM CST.
|1||QB1||Patrick Mahomes||QB||KC||There's debate about Mahomes vs. McCaffrey for the top overall asset in superflex, but unless it's a points per carry league, Mahomes is safer.|
|5||QB2||Lamar Jackson||QB||BAL||Jackson is a dynamic play-maker, but his yards per carry and TD rate from 2019 will surely regress. I have him barely ahead of Prescott and Murray.|
|8||QB3||Dak Prescott||QB||DAL||Prescott was the no. 2 fantasy QB in 2019, and now DAL has added yet another weapon for him in Lamb. He could surpass Jackson by this time next year.|
|9||QB4||Kyler Murray||QB||ARI||Likewise, Murray benefits from ARI's trade for Hopkins. In a high-octane Kingsbury-led offense and with rushing upside, he too could overtake Jackson.|
|13||QB5||Deshaun Watson||QB||HOU||Even with the loss of Hopkins, Watson is too talented to rank lower than QB5. And if Cooks and Fuller can stay healthy, he could still be in for a big year.|
|17||QB6||Josh Allen||QB||BUF||Allen's real-life decision making and accuracy still need work, but his rushing production gives him a high weekly floor and ceiling in fantasy.|
|18||QB7||Russell Wilson||QB||SEA||Wilson is a top-three NFL quarterback, but he's my QB7 due to the run-heavy nature of SEA's offense limiting his weekly floor and ceiling.|
|19||QB8||Carson Wentz||QB||PHI||Health and lack of surrounding talent have limited Wentz's career thus far, but it's too early to consider him "injury prone", and PHI is slowly adding weapons.|
|20||QB9||Baker Mayfield||QB||CLE||After an awful 2019, Mayfield should bounce back with a healthy Beckham, the addition of Hooper, and an upgraded offensive line, but volume is a concern.|
|21||QB10||Joe Burrow||QB||CIN||Burrow's final college season was historic, and he lands on a CIN team with plenty of surrounding talent, especially if AJ Green can stay healthy.|
|27||QB11||Tua Tagovailoa||QB||MIA||His injury history increases his bust potential, but had he stayed healthy in 2019, Tagovailoa could've been the top rookie quarterback. He's that talented.|
|38||QB12||Jared Goff||QB||LAR||Goff is an average real-life QB propped up by Sean McVay, but he's a reliable fantasy asset, having finished as the QB13 and QB6 the last two years.|
|42||QB13||Daniel Jones||QB||NYG||Jones displayed talent and had big games even as a rookie, but he must fix his turnovers or risk suffering the same backup fate as Jameis Winston.|
|43||QB14||Drew Lock||QB||DEN||While still unproven, DEN is giving him every chance to succeed. If he's even above average, his surrounding talent gives him top-5 QB upside.|
|47||QB15||Matthew Stafford||QB||DET||Stafford was the no. 6 fantasy QB in PPG in 2019 prior to his injury. If he stays healthy, he's a solid QB1 and still relatively young at just 32 years old.|
|50||QB16||Matt Ryan||QB||ATL||Ryan has been a perennial QB1, and though 2019 was full of ups and downs due to offensive line play, he still finished as the no. 8 QB in fantasy.|
|63||QB17||Ryan Tannehill||QB||TEN||Left for dead in MIA, Tannehill resurrected his dynasty value in TEN, finishing 2019 as the no. 4 QB in fantasy PPG. Even with regression, he's a worthy QB2.|
|67||QB18||Sam Darnold||QB||NYJ||The big concern is Adam Gase. Darnold has been given Mims and an upgraded offensive line, but his development this year, or lack thereof, is key.|
|71||QB19||Aaron Rodgers||QB||GB||Rodgers was barely a top-10 fantasy QB last year with Matt LaFleur calling more runs. At 36 years old, his future in GB and in fantasy is up in the air.|
|74||QB20||Jimmy Garropolo||QB||SF||Like Goff, Garoppolo is an average real-life QB, but Kyle Shanahan makes him a decent fantasy QB. However, a run-heavy SF scheme limits his upside.|
|75||QB21||Kirk Cousins||QB||MIN||Another QB in a run-heavy offense, Cousins is an adequate QB2 but unlikely to have week-winning upside outside of a few big games each season.|
|82||QB22||Gardner Minshew||QB||JAX||Minshew was fantasy QB11 through Week 9 last year as a starter. His upside is marvelous, but it remains to be seen whether he'll be JAX's starter long-term.|
|90||QB23||Tom Brady||QB||TB||Brady will be 43 years old this season, but he has league-winning upside over the next two years with Evans, Godwin, and Gronkowski supporting him in TB.|
|91||QB24||Justin Herbert||QB||LAC||Herbert makes great plays at times but is inconsistent, though he has upside if he develops with great weapons in Allen, Williams, and Henry in LAC.|
|102||QB25||Jarrett Stidham||QB||NE||Stidham will get a shot in 2019 to prove worthy of remaining the starter in NE. With Josh McDaniels running the offense, he could be adequate.|
|103||QB26||Dwayne Haskins||QB||WAS||Haskins looked lost at times as a rookie, but he did play well in stretches. If WAS can actually help him develop, there's still some hope for Haskins.|
|107||QB27||Teddy Bridgewater||QB||CAR||Likely a bridge QB until CAR drafts a QB in 2021, he has some short-term upside in a dynamic offense with a lot of YAC weapons to help his low aDOT.|
|108||QB28||Drew Brees||QB||NO||Brees probably only has a year or two left, at most. But with Thomas, Kamara, and now Sanders, he still has top-5 fantasy QB potential short-term.|
|120||QB29||Ben Roethlisberger||QB||PIT||Roethlisberger's longevity is in question as well, but he's been a back-end fantasy QB1 when healthy and still has value for contending rosters.|
|128||QB30||Derek Carr||QB||LVR||2020 will be Carr's make or break year, and while he may yet succeed, I would expect LVR to replace him in the 2021 NFL Draft if he doesn't develop.|
|133||QB31||Cam Newton||QB||FA||The fact that Newton is still a FA doesn't bode well for his dynasty value. He may rebound when healthy, but he'll need a starting opportunity first to do so.|
|138||QB32||Jordan Love||QB||GB||GB's selection of Love was baffling, but if they do move on from Rodgers, any starting QB will have value in superflex formats.|
|144||QB33||Philip Rivers||QB||IND||Rivers is nearing the end, having made errant throws and head-scratching INTs. Expect IND to hide him behind a run-heavy offense featuring Taylor.|
|150||QB34||Jameis Winston||QB||NO||Winston is on a one-year backup deal in NO. Beyond that, it's questionable whether he can find a starting role, especially with a talented 2021 QB class.|
|151||TE17||Irv Smith Jr.||TE||MIN|
|176||QB35||Marcus Mariota||QB||LVR||Now a backup in LVR, Mariota could usurp Carr if he slips up, but even then, Mariota hasn't shown that he can be an adequate starter in the league.|
|181||QB36||Jalen Hurts||QB||PHI||Though none of Wentz's injuries are recurring or at particular risk of reoccurence, he has missed quite a bit of time over his short career.|
|192||QB37||Jacob Eason||QB||IND||If Rivers loses a couple of games with bad turnovers early on, IND may scrap their experiment early. Plus, Rivers is only there on a one-year prove-it deal.|
|195||QB38||Taysom Hill||QB||NO||Where there's smoke, there's fire. NO's love for Hill is apparent, and he has the skills to be a Josh Allen lite if Brees retires after 2020.|
