NFL Week 12 Fantasy Football Superflex Rankings

As usual, these are my weekly .5-PPR superflex rankings to assist with start/sit decisions in what can often be complicated league formats. The key to winning superflex matchups is to understand the range of outcomes with weekly projections. 

We will examine these players using tiers. For example, any player in Tier 2 should be started over a player in Tier 3. Within any tier, these choices are going to be a matter of preference.

Since the quarterback pool is limited to essentially 32 starters per week, we will be breaking down the top 100 superflex options each week. Let’s get to it!

As a reminder, there are two teams on bye this week: the Arizona Cardinals and the Kansas City Chiefs.

TIER 1: THE BONAFIDE QB1S & RB1S

Name Team Position Opp Proj Pts
Lamar Jackson BAL QB vs CLE 24.3
Josh Allen BUF QB @ NO 24.7
Dak Prescott DAL QB vs LV 22.9
Tom Brady TB QB @ IND 23.1
Jalen Hurts PHI QB @ NYG 21.1
Joe Burrow CIN QB vs PIT 20.1
Matthew Stafford LAR QB @ GB 17.4
Justin Herbert LAC QB @ DEN 20.6
Derek Carr LV QB @ DAL 18.2
Kirk Cousins MIN QB @ SF 16.7
Jonathan Taylor IND RB vs TB 16.3
Christian McCaffrey CAR RB @ MIA 15.9
Russell Wilson SEA QB @ WAS 20.8
Aaron Rodgers GB QB vs LAR 19.9

There is a new QB1 on the year in terms of total fantasy points: Jalen Hurts. The Eagles QB has been touted repeatedly in this series thanks to his rushing upside — it’s nice to see him get the respect he deserves. Not to mention, in the last month Hurts is ninth in passing grade among quarterbacks with at least 50 dropbacks. He’s been the complete package lately and should remain in the top-five discussion on a weekly basis.

Prior to Monday Night Football, Justin Herbert is sitting as the top quarterback of the week in fantasy points scored. He rushed for 90 yards to complement a 382-yard, three-touchdown affair against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night. Herbert has thrown a passing touchdown in every game this season and at least two touchdowns in three of his last four games. Temper expectations slightly though, as the Los Angeles Chargers take on the Denver Broncos, who are coming off their bye week, in Week 12.
