Superflex leagues are becoming more popular every year, and it's a fun format to play in since quarterback is such a deep position in Fantasy. It's basically a two-quarterback league, but you don't have to start two quarterbacks, which would be a mistake if passing touchdowns are worth six points as they are here.
In this 12-team, Superflex mock draft, which is also PPR, quarterbacks were a priority early. Six quarterbacks were drafted in the first round, nine were gone after Round 2 and 13 quarterbacks were off the board by the end of Round 3. Three Fantasy managers -- myself, Meron Berkson and Jack Capotorto -- drafted two quarterbacks with our first three picks.
I had the No. 2 overall pick, and I started my team with Patrick Mahomes and Ryan Tannehill. With quarterback and my Superflex spot out of the way, I then started drafting the best player available with the rest of my picks.
My running back corps is Joe Mixon, Mike Davis, Damien Harris, Trey Sermon, Zack Moss and Tony Pollard. That's a solid group, and I love my starting receivers with Terry McLaurin, Amari Cooper and Chase Claypool, with Mike Williams and Tre'Quan Smith on the bench.
I waited on tight end but was able to get Tyler Higbee with my last pick, and he's a good late-round target this year. And I also drafted Drew Lock as a third quarterback, so hopefully he'll be Denver's starter all season. I like the way this roster construction came together, and I should have the best quarterback duo in the league.
Now, let's compare my team to Andrew Baumhor's since he was the last Fantasy manager to draft his first quarterback, who was Jalen Hurts in Round 3. He also drafted Matt Ryan in Round 7, Jared Goff in Round 10 and Jimmy Garoppolo in Round 14.
Baumhor's running backs are Nick Chubb, Darrell Henderson, Travis Etienne, Rashaad Penny and Nyheim Hines. At receiver, he has Davante Adams, Kenny Golladay, DeVonta Smith, Michael Pittman and Jaylen Waddle. And he has George Kittle at tight end.

This is a quality roster, but he might not have a standout quarterback if Hurts or Ryan struggle, with Goff and Garoppolo having limited upside coming into the year. However, if two of these quarterbacks are top 15 Fantasy options or better, this could be a strong playoff contender.
You can decide which approach you like better in a Superflex league, but I like the security of having two standout quarterbacks in this format. You don't always have to draft two quarterbacks with your first two picks, but get them early if you can, otherwise it could be frustrating.
In this league, all touchdowns are worth six points, and we award one point for every 10 yards rushing and receiving and one point for every 25 yards passing. We also award one point for every reception. We feature a starting lineup of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, FLEX (RB/WR/TE), SUPERFLEX (QB/RB/WR/TE) and DST. There also are six reserve spots for a 16-round draft.
