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!

Patrick Mahomes bounced back nicely last week even if the box score wasn’t eye-popping, as he completed 20 of his 24 attempts for 258 yards and two scores while recording his best passer rating of the season. This is exactly the type of game Mahomes needed heading into a huge divisional game against the Los Angeles Chargers that will likely decide the AFC West. Look for Mahomes to play up to his opponent this week and streak toward the playoffs.

Despite Taysom Hill’s low projection, he’s a lock to be a top-12 fantasy quarterback once again this week. In a matchup against the New York Jets, Hill and the New Orleans Saints offense took a more conservative run-heavy approach and won handily. Hill posted low passing volume with just 21 total attempts but again rushed 11 times for 73 yards and two touchdowns. This week’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be a real test for Hill. However, the Bucs have allowed an average of 413 total offensive yards in their last three games. Hill should smash here.
