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!
TIER 1: THE BONAFIDE QB1S & RB1S
|Tom Brady||TB||QB||@ ATL||25.5|
|Josh Allen||BUF||QB||vs NE||23|

|Russell Wilson||SEA||QB||vs SF||19.4|
|Jonathan Taylor||IND||RB||@ HOU||21.5|
Tom Brady is at the top of this week’s rankings, which might be surprising to some. Among the top names, he has, by far, the easiest matchup and will potentially also have Antonio Brown back in the lineup. Prior to Brown missing time, Brady averaged 344 passing yards and 2.8 touchdowns per game. Since then, those averages have dropped to 268 passing yards and 2.6 touchdowns. Brady is coming off arguably his worst game of the season and will use a soft matchup against the Atlanta Falcons to reinvigorate the Buccaneers’ playoff push.
These last few weeks have been tough sledding for Matthew Stafford — even if his Week 12 boxscore doesn’t seem to reflect it. Stafford finished with 302 passing yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a loss to the Green Bay Packers. He is also set up with a plush matchup this week, and the only thing stopping him from being ranked higher is game script.
