Quarterback is the position that just about everybody tries to fade in drafts or at least try to catch at a value. There are multiple ways to handle the position in dynasty. Superflex is totally different and it includes multiple different strategies and tactics to maximize value at the position.
I’m going to give you five quarterbacks that I’m looking to buy either in startup drafts or through the trade market. Value is very important. I don’t want to overpay for anything. I also stress setting expectations for players when buying them. I’m not guying to trade for Tom Brady and expect him to be on my roster ten years from now. There are different reasons why someone would want to buy a player. Sometimes we find a player who is undervalued who can hold down the fort in your lineup for a year or two. There are also players who we know will increase in trade value and buying them now is just an investment for the future.
Looking for quarterbacks that you can get at a discount compared to what they have to offer could transition into a roster move that helps you build your team to cover bye weeks or allows you to start the best option.
That said, let’s take a look at the five quarterbacks I’m currently buying:
Sam Darnold, QB NYJ
Darnold is a very intriguing quarterback prospect. He ranked sixth amongst quarterbacks with 19.1 fantasy points per game during weeks 14-16, the last three weeks of the fantasy season. During those three weeks he ranked second in the league with an 80.7 adjusted completion rate.

Rivers is my starting QB, with Darnold as backup, for now.
The issue I find with Rivers is that he tapers off towards the end of the season, and can fail to produce enough during the fantasy playoffs. I’ve been burned by him each of the last two years in the finals. This year he’ll be my starter, but I’m hoping that Darnold or a QB TBD steps up later in the year come playoff time.
I am high on Darnold. If Bell can get other teams to stack the box, Darnold can really let it rip.
Is it bad that when I saw a video/tweet from Chris Collinsworth I immediately disregarded this entire article?
Comment regarding Luck – “You might be able to get him for a second-round rookie pick”???
Anyone can for sure get Luck for a 2nd round rookie pick…he’s been dropped in about 1/2 my leagues with a few desperate owners holding him only bc they recently traded for him before he announced his retirement. Getting a 2nd round pick for him is a smash accept IMO
