Go WR heavy and draft backs that catch out of the backfield.
Don’t draft a QB or TE too early.
I would say that towards the end of the draft there are decent WR's still available when other positions look pretty weak.

Also, doesn't Superflex allow for a QB to be used at Flex? In that case I might draft one earlier than usual.

Didn’t say anything about 1 or 2 QB.
Didn’t know you could have a league with a QB in flex…

Superflex is a flex spot where you can use a QB so it’s essentially a 2 QB league. And they go super fast. 10 qbs were taken in the first two rounds last year.

I’d been performing well in my league til this twist was introduced last year so was hoping some folks here had some tricks.

This is essentially exactly what I did the two years before last (won both years). Then we switched to Superflex and it threw me way, way off.

I would think (depending on the scoring) that QB's will generally out-score the other positions that you can use at Flex. I would seriously consider drafting a QB in the first round, but it depends on who's available and the scoring obviously.

Here's a set of half-PPR Superflex rankings for reference. They recommend a RB at 2/3, but Allen/Herbert at 1 and 4. Tough call.

Yes, I'm kidding people.
Definitely WR with heavy targets. Keenan Allen types. This year I think Cleveland will be even heavier on the run. Chubb for carries, Hunt for catches (monitor his status).

Yeah, if it's anything like last year, there'll be 10 QBs will all be gone before my 2nd pick. This is a whole different beast to the format we were using before.

#1a - Take a QB early, 'cause Superflex
#1b - Superflex is stupid
#2 - If there is anything resembling a good RB left when you pick again, take him. Then take another QB if there's one worth drafting. Then load up on WR.
#3 - I won't recommend any actual players because I (a) - suck at FF and (b) - have insanely bad luck
#4 - Good luck!

I'm in a superflex league and the 2 QB is messed up.

In any ppr type league you gotta try to get the right WR and rb

Love FF. More than FH.

The problem with 1B is that 1 QB leagues suck (10-15 teams). There's too many good players at the position. It kind of ruins the game, because it doesn't really matter who your QB is (even though it's the most important, fun to watch position in the league)

But there aren't enough QB's for everyone to have 3 in a 12-team 2-QB league, which makes it weird for redraft/money leagues. So I grudgingly accept that having a Superflex position does make a lot of sense.

another kritter gold nugget for this season.
Stream whichever team defence is going up against the Seahawks. That offence is going to be mega shitty.
