It’s almost that time of year again: rookie drafts are on the horizon. Rebuilders are full of glee as they hoard their picks, while contenders are scheming how they can pry some of those picks away, and dynasty players everywhere are champing at the bit to draft their favorite prospect.
In this series, the Dynasty League Football team will be taking a look at four pick sections of a dynasty rookie draft to give a comprehensive view of those picks by analyzing consensus picks of the past, the potential options for this year, and what the picks are worth on the trade market. For this series, we’ll be focusing on superflex formats.
Historical Consensus Picks 5-8
- 1.05 – Treylon Burks, WR TEN
- 1.06 – Jameson Williams, WR DET
- 1.07 – Chris Olave, WR NO
- 1.08 – Kenny Pickett, QB PIT
- 1.05 – Kyle Pitts, TE ATL
- 1.06 – Najee Harris, RB PIT
- 1.07 – Zach Wilson, QB NYJ
- 1.08 – Travis Etienne, RB JAC
- 1.05 – JK Dobbins, RB BAL
- 1.06 – D'Andre Swift, RB DET
- 1.07 – Cam Akers, RB LAR
- 1.08 – Jerry Jeudy, WR DEN
Looking at these groups of players, it’s hard to have any really good takeaways because so many of these players have dealt with injuries or other circumstances that have interrupted their careers.

These articles are great and focused on SuperFlex. If I’m in a (12 team)1 QB 2RB 2WR 1TE 2Flex 12bench 6taxi PPR dynasty league. How does the SuperFlex draft order differ from my PPR league? My little bit of research has Superflex gives great importance to Qbs . Does this switch the importance of the Qb’s to late 1st rounders early 2nd rounders. Just making sure I’m picking the best player available with my picks. I have a few first rounders and looks like should be able to get Gibbs, JSN, and whoever is left for 1.05 and 1.06. Would I be best suited to try and pickup the remaining Addison/Johnston and then another WR/RB or does a Young/Stroud come into as next best available player? Apologize in advance but trying to best utilize your guys hard work and research to adjusted to my league.
In a 1QB league I don’t think that young or stroud will come off the board until the late first or early second. There’s gonna be a lot of RBs and maybe Michael mayer too before a QB will be taken.
Thank you for the kind words!
Yes, the QBs would fall to the end of the first. I wouldn’t see myself drafting one with a top 6 pick.
Got the 1.06 and 1.08 in a single qb league. Feels like a big tier break with the top 5 for now. But we’ll wait until we get some buzzzzzz. Who’s it gonna be?
I think you’ll be hoping that one of the top 3 WRs falls to you at 1.06. After them it’s kind of open and it will depend on the rest of the process.
