4 Undervalued Superflex Quarterbacks
7 months ago Chris Dutton Comments Off on 4 Undervalued Superflex Quarterbacks
I present to you a list of the top undervalued quarterbacks in dynasty superflex leagues. These players are currently ranked in the 13-23 range by the dynasty community, but each could produce as a top-12 quarterback. Having a second quarterback that can put up QB1 numbers in your superflex spot can make the difference between being a contender, or just a pretender.
Even while missing four games last year, Allen finished as a top-20 fantasy quarterback. The additions of Gore and Singletary mean that he will have a solid run game to work with. The team also signed Cole Beasley to give Allen a reliable safety valve and to help continue his growth, much like he did for Dak Prescott. In the meantime, he presents a high floor with his weekly rushing totals and has a cannon for an arm. Currently ranked as the QB13 in dynasty by Master Drafter Football, he has a good chance to outperform several players ranked higher such as Sam Darnold and Mitch Trubisky.
Speaking of the GOAT (yes he just turned 42, but after a change to his throwing mechanics a few years ago he can still sling the ball at 61mph. Only Josh Allen has thrown harder at the combine (62mph) since they started keeping track in 2008. Yes, Gronkowski is gone, but he now has arguably the best receiving corps of his entire career with a healthy Demaryius Thomas and Josh Gordon to go along with Edelman, Harry, and White. This means Brady still has plenty of options, and I trust Josh McDaniels to call the right plays to put his players in the best position to succeed. Many people view dynasty in three year windows, and Tom Brady is conveniently signed for the next three years. You know he will produce in the games that matter most during the fantasy playoffs. Currently ranked QB23 by Master Drafter, don’t be surprised if he finishes with another top-10 season.
A lot can be said for his character issues off the field, but when given the opportunity for snaps he can still produce fantasy points. If you were to combine the throwing stats of Fitzpatrick and Winston from last year, you would get 5,358 passing yards and 36 touchdowns. That would have only trailed Patrick Mahomes in fantasy scoring. With Fitzpatrick on a new team, a new head coach, and offensive system in quarterback whisperer Bruce Arians, the sky’s the limit for Winston. Many experts are calling this a breakout year for Chris Godwin. If that’s true and Mike Evans is still a WR1 along with O.J. Howard still being one of the better pass catching tight ends, then it stands to reason that Winston will have a standout year as well. Currently ranked QB27 by Master Drafter, he could easily crack the top-3 in scoring in 2019.
Assuming he has returned to health, Garoppolo has all the tools to succeed. Tom Brady suffered a similar ACL injury and offered his advice to his former pupil. He’s surrounded by a great supporting cast that includes the best receiving tight end last year in George Kittle. He also has one of the best offensive play callers in Kyle Shanahan. Shanahan knows how to scheme his guys open. The additions of Tevin Coleman (familiar with Shanahan’s system) and Deebo Samuel to go along with Dante Pettis and Marquise Goodwin means that Garoppolo has plenty of playmakers to work with. Currently ranked as QB15 by Master Drafter Football right around guys like Dak Prescott and Lamar Jackson, I could see a healthy Garoppolo become a draft day steal. Now, I realize his most recent preseason game was a disaster. Also, there are reports that he threw five straight interceptions in practice. Garoppolo will be on a short leash and this is definitely a make or break year for him. However, I still have faith as it’s his job to lose and he will be given every opportunity to succeed. This just makes him a bigger steal if he pans out.
