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!

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.
