In standard fantasy leagues, quarterback isn’t nearly as important as other positions, particularly running back and receiver, but two-quarterback formats — or superflex leagues — change that in a big way. In our February average draft position (ADP) data for standard leagues, no quarterbacks are among the top-45 overall players. In our two-quarterback rankings, however, ten passers are ranked inside the top 45.
Admittedly, quarterback has been the toughest position yet in this series, especially when looking for players to sell. While there are gobs of fantasy-relevant wideouts and running backs to mine through for a project like this, there aren’t many signal callers who are valued somewhat highly — making it worthwhile to trade them — in standard leagues. I’ll tell you right now I took some risks in an effort to give you quarterbacks who would be of relevance. I want the information in this article to be actionable, so rather than telling you to sell someone like Joe Flacco, I hit on a few of the highly-valued passers.
I know I’m probably going to get some pushback on the first two — they are unquestionably two of the most exciting players in all of the dynasty landscape right now — and I fully understand why, but I’m going to try to explain myself and my thoughts in a thorough manner throughout the piece. Please remember that in no way am I saying these are players you must trade away, but I encourage you to come into it with an open mind, look at the information, come to your own conclusion and maybe see what the young signal callers could net you if you put them on the block. Also, and this is important, in superflex leagues, I wouldn’t move the first two players below for anything less than a massive haul — read: a fairly large overpay — since quarterback production isn’t as easily replaceable in that format.
For clarity, all ADP info is pulled from our February 2018 ADP data, which includes incoming rookies. The ADP is for one-quarterback leagues, but it does serve as a good barometer for a quarterback’s ranking among his positional peers. To get a better feel for two-quarterback — and superflex — values, we’ll reference our two-quarterback rankings.
OK, let’s get to it.
