With training camps opening soon, it is time to take another look at some alternative dynasty data. Of course, I’m referring to super-flex dynasty ADP.
Perhaps it has to do with the recent kickoff of the annual Scott Fish Bowl, the biggest (and best) fantasy league in the world, which happens to be a super-flex league, but I’ve noticed some increased chatter about this format that was once considered a niche. More and more fantasy players are not only opting for this alternative when choosing leagues but making it a requirement.
In fact, Pat Thorman of Pro Football Focus recently shared this on Twitter, which pretty much sums things up.
If there’s a good reason to have a one-QB league over a Superflex format, I haven’t heard it.

Personally, I tend to treat quarterbacks in this format as I do wide receivers in a typical league. I want as many top end quarterbacks as I can get and they usually make up the majority of my cornerstone draft picks when building a team.
Next, I’ll go round-by-round, sharing the end of season 2QB ADP we’ve formed with some brief thoughts for the first few rounds.
|Player||Team||Position Rank||2QB Dynasty ADP|
Players by Round (Running Total)
QB- 2 (2)
RB- 6 (6)
WR- 4 (4)
TE- 0 (0)
Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way. I was shocked at how the quarterbacks lasted in this draft. It certainly does not invalidate the data, though it did remind me just how varied super-flex startup drafts can be.
In general, our standard one-QB ADP can give a drafter a strong idea of when a specific player will come off the board, allowing a strong plan to be formulated. Drafting in a super-flex startup is more about position runs, focused obviously on the signal callers.
In Round One, only two quarterbacks were drafted while most owners continued to focus on the running back position, which is the new trend after a strong couple of years and a major infusion of talent.
