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!

How do you do, Joe Burrow? The Cincinnati Bengals slinger savaged the Baltimore Ravens last week with a whopping 525 passing yards and four touchdown passes. Barring Monday Night Football, Burrow will finish as this week's No. 1 quarterback in fantasy points.

Even though he had the most dropbacks of any quarterback this week, he also recorded zero turnover-worthy plays. Great stuff. Next week, Burrow will play against the Kansas City Chiefs and make a concentrated effort to secure the Bengals' playoff berth with a week to spare.
Josh Allen managers are probably pretty happy right now, as they were gifted a solid 31-point performance in the semifinals, and now they get to look forward to a very forgiving matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. Also, considering Allen’s foot sprain, it was great to see 12 rushing attempts for 64 yards against the New England Patriots. Allen will smash again against the Falcons, who are the third-worst defense in terms of fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks.
