Fantasy Superflex Rankings 2021: Top 200 for PPR leagues

Must Read

There used to be a time when basic, standard leagues ruled fantasy football. Back then, the most exotic variation you saw was tight ends being eligible in the flex position. Now, things are much more varied, with two-QB and superflex leagues gaining in popularity and PPR becoming the default on many sites. If you add them together, you get a whole different feel than your standard, single-quarterback redraft leagues. It’s quite likely your yearly fantasy group is tempted to try this type of league in 2021 if they haven’t already. Before you make the switch, it’s important to pay attention to the variance in rankings between these formats and single-QB setups.

Superflex leagues force you to pay closer attention to all QBs, not just the top 15 or so. Plenty of owners in single-QB leagues don’t even bother drafting a backup, figuring they can just stream someone off the waiver wire when their starter is on bye. Good luck finding a starting quarterback on waivers in superflex and two-QB leagues.

DOMINATE YOUR DRAFT: Ultimate 2021 Cheat Sheet

Assuming everyone in your league starts two quarterbacks and drafts at least one backup, only two Week 1 starting QBs won’t be drafted. In all likelihood, though, those two QBs with be on rosters, too. In 12-person or deeper leagues, not every team will even possess a backup quarterback behind their two starters.

Even a lot of Week 1 backup QBs will be drafted in superflex leagues. Trey Lance, Mac Jones, Taysom Hill — if they have a realistic chance to start at some point relatively early in the season, they have value. That’s why, unlike single-QB leagues, quarterbacks go early and dominate the top half of our rankings below. It can be a weird adjustment to change your way of thinking about the quarterback position, but it’s just something you have to prepare for. You don’t have to completely sell out for the position — elite RBs, WRs, and TEs still have a ton of value, especially since you can still play those positions in your superflex spot if you want — but you might be surprised just how fast QBs come off the board if it’s your first superflex draft.

Outside of the obvious differences between standard and PPR superflex leagues, the quarterback position is just a tad more valuable in standard. This is simply because other positions produce more fantasy points in PPR leagues while the quarterback position is unaffected across the two formats. Just to point out one example, Kirk Cousins ranked 11th overall in fantasy last year in standard formats (and ahead of any other non-QB), but in PPR leagues, he finished 17th overall (behind Tyreek Hill, Stefon Diggs, and others). Cousins is much more valuable in superflex leagues compared to single-QB leagues regardless, but the PPR format allowed a few running backs and wide receivers to leapfrog him in total fantasy points.

Put simply, virtually all quarterbacks have higher ceilings and noticeably higher floors every week than any RB, WR, or TE you would be considering for your superflex spot. Occasionally you’ll have three awesome RB matchups and want to play them all, which you always have the option to do, but you still want to arm yourself with enough worthwhile QBs to have in your lineup most weeks.
