“Tremendous” is just an excellent phrase. It’s even higher as a prefix. The whole lot you set it in entrance of it makes higher: Supersize, Superman, Tremendous-Walmart. “Duper” is nothing and not using a tremendous in entrance of it.
So it makes good sense that fantasy soccer is elevated once you add a “tremendous” component. Extra particularly, Superflex.
The Superflex format permits fantasy managers to make use of a quarterback in a Flex place — along with operating backs, broad receivers and tight ends being eligible for that spot as nicely. This makes such leagues basically default two-QB leagues – because you nearly at all times desire a QB in that spot as a result of QBs routinely rating greater than gamers at different positions.
We expect this format is tremendous for a few causes. First, it elevates the fantasy worth of QBs.
Positive, we like our fantasy codecs to as carefully as attainable resemble real-world soccer, however we are able to swallow this inconsistency (no actual workforce truly makes use of two QBs) as a result of it fixes a extra problematic inconsistency, that of QB worth.
Even in customary 12-team leagues, the fantasy worth of high QBs doesn’t mirror their real-world impression. You’ll be able to go on drafting a fantasy QB early and nonetheless have a championship-caliber roster. You’ll be able to even stream QBs week-to-week, notably in 10-team leagues, and be among the many high squads. Such approaches will not be that troublesome to execute.
However once you add within the choice for a second QB, abruptly grabbing a few the highest choices at QB turns into a a lot larger precedence. It places quarterbacks on related worth floor as broad receivers, and never far under operating backs when it comes to draft worth and roster impression.
Because of this alone, we favor Superflex codecs to conventional roster development. Although, there are some leagues that [ital] require [end ital] you to start out two QBs. Our disdain for this requirement is a cause we favor the pliability of Superflex to precise two-QB leagues.
Even in 10-team leagues, it’s seemingly nearly each workforce in a two-QB or Superflex format goes to draft three QBs – two to start out every week and one to fill in for accidents and byes. That’s 30 QBs anticipated to be drafted. There are simply 32 real-world beginning QBs every week – and fewer throughout bye weeks. So this makes the pool of choices extremely shallow when it is advisable to discover a substitute as a result of, maybe, you’ve got one QB injured and one other on a bye week. The bigger the league, the extra seemingly such a state of affairs arises, since there will likely be even fewer choices out there.
The distinction in Superflex is the second QB isn’t required. You’ll be able to put a operating again, receiver or tight finish there as nicely. You don’t essentially wish to, however no less than you’ve got that choice. You gained’t get caught having to select up a real-life backup hoping he will get rubbish time or the real-world starter will get injured.
So speak to your commish, graduate from Mediocre Flex to Superflex. Why? As a result of it’s tremendous, foolish. It’s proper there within the title.
