Week 6 of the fantasy football season is here, as 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

It’s time to recognize Jalen Hurts’ great start to the 2021 season.
The only two quarterbacks to score in the top 10 every week:

That's right — not even Tom Brady can make this claim. Hurts has been absolutely crushing it this season, and it’s time for the rankings to reflect that. Through five weeks, he has PFF’s 10th-highest offensive grade among quarterbacks. While his outstanding rushing ability provides a solid fantasy floor, Hurts has still managed the 13th-best passing grade during this stretch as well. I have him as my third-highest-ranked quarterback for Week 6.
Speaking of Brady, the man just does not slow down.

Had Brady not faced Bill Belichick in Week 4, he would likely also have been top-10 every week. In the first five weeks, Brady notched three games with at least four passing touchdowns and hasn’t thrown a pick since Week 1. It’s rare for a non-rushing quarterback to dominate like this, so enjoy it while it lasts.
