Picks 1-3

• Attacking quarterback early and often: The beauty of the first three picks in a superflex league draft is securing a Tier 1 quarterback.

• The skill positions are deep: While quarterback thins out quickly, there are still plenty of running backs and wide receivers to target later in superflex drafts.

Picks 4-6

• Even without landing a Tier 1 QB in the first round, there’s plenty to like about this draft spot: Lamar Jackson, Joe Burrow, and Justin Fields are the best consolation prizes around.

• There isn’t always a need to start QB-QB: Know the ADP and get a feel for the draft, but there’s wiggle room to target high-end skill position players before drafting two QBs.

Picks 7-9

• Grabbing a first-round quarterback continues to be the best path: Locking up one of the elite quarterback options is still possible in the back half of the first round.

• Building around quarterback and running back early: This draft position should allow a running back-heavy build while still allowing you to land a WR1.

Picks 10-12

• Hoping for a top-10 quarterback in the back of the first round: Justin Fields or Trevor Lawrence could help salvage this late pick in the first round, according to ADP.

• The best draft position to wait on QB2: ADP could allow us to target some of the top-tier non-quarterbacks through the first four rounds once we lock up QB1.
