Every year we see remarks and posts from league commissioners requesting concepts on how to make their leagues more amazing and competitive. Ideas can bring hugely, however the suggestion I will constantly make and recommend is changing your dynasty league to a Superflex format.
Many of you have actually been playing this video game for years. Some have actually been playing it for years. We have actually seen numerous modifications in the dream football landscape throughout the years. We have actually experienced leagues go from basic to PPR to even half-point PPR. We have actually seen leagues carry out FAAB, rather of simply waiver concerns based upon their record. We have actually seen leagues include flex areas, and some leagues have actually gotten rid of kickers or dream defenses. There are constantly patterns in the neighborhood as these tweaks start to make waves and end up being the brand-new “standard.” That is what we see with Superflex formats also. I forecast that over the next 3-4 years, this will be the default format on all of your preferred sites, and details will be more common than it is now.
Currently,Superflex scoring is deemed more of an outlier in the mainstream thinking, as they think that a 1QB league offers a lot of worth to the quarterback position by itself. But does it, when gamers like Mitch Trubisky, while not a terrific quarterback, are on waivers? Why is it the most important gamers in the NFL are so cheapened in this video game we enjoy? Superflex exists to repair that by offering not just the quarterback increased worth due to positional deficiency however likewise more consistency in your lineup also.
The QB position
Why is it that the most crucial position in sports is simply an afterthought in dream football? Read any method post or switch on any podcast and you will likely hear the very same belief: wait on preparing a quarterback
This is a technique that I, in addition to numerous other dream specialists and experts, will preach for 1QB start-ups. Think about the quantity of method you take into the other positions. Are you a zero-RB drafter? Do you think in balance early on, such as targeting an RB and WR in the very first 2 rounds? But when it concerns quarterback, there is normally simply one concern: do you wish to pay up for the elite skill? If the response is no, you merely wait. So not just are we including a brand-new component into preparing methods, however it likewise blends how individuals will prepare.
In a common league, you get a feel quite rapidly on the space you remain in and their procedure. In a Superflex draft, how other members in your league pick to execute this modification into their draft methods produces a large range of difference, including a much-needed enjoyment into the draft.
The factor we can wait so long is because of how deep the position is. Not just that, however it is likewise perhaps the most constant. By transitioning to a Superflex dynasty league, you are including another opportunity to play among the top-scoring gamers week-in and week-out in your lineups. Compare that situation versus that of a 1QB format where you are depending on a low floor/mid-ceiling person who you hope will have a midway good return on worth.
Take a take a look at this list of quarterbacks and their end of season overalls in dream football.
In the last 5 years, there have actually been simply 2 seasons with less than 15 QBs scoring 250+ dream points. Not just does that mean that every owner in your league can have a QB scoring that quantity, however it suggests that there are likely some QBs on the waiver that you can get and merely plug into your lineup. If you alter this to 6 points per passing goal, 23 quarterbacks in 2019 exceeded the 250 point mark– nearly practically adequate to fill all lineups in a 12- group league.
To offer you a bit more insight, in six-point scoring, Carson Wentz was the QB10 in 2019 with a point per video game average of 20.61 points. Jacoby Brissett was the QB23, however he likewise had a point per video game average of 16.87 points.
Compare that to the remainder of the NFL, and just 16 gamers balanced more than what the QB23 performed in 2019.
Switch to Superflex dynasty
Being able to include this sort of consistency to your lineup is among the very best factors to make the switch. But it does not imply that the video game gets any much easier, just a bit less fluky. The cream will still increase to the top, as there is now a more important requirement to have at least 2 of the upper tier quarterbacks. As we saw in the graphic I published previously, there suffice 250+ point quarterbacks to walk around for a 1QB league, however not a Superflex league. The charge for being beyond that group with both of your beginning gamers puts owners at a significant weekly downside that can be as much as 50-75 points throughout the season.
This reality is amplified a lot more in dynasty as all appropriate gamers are prepared. This suggests that there likely will not be a chance to discover a weekly waiver wire get mid-season. You will either have them on your lineup or be required to pay a premium in a trade.
So when breaking all of this down, we return to some primary core components. Changing to a Superflex dynasty league includes more range to drafts. It offers more worth to the most important position in sports. Teams and owners end up being more constant by having the ability to use the highest-scoring gamers in dream in more locations. Also, the ability space is maintained if not heightened due to the requirement for having as numerous quality beginning quarterbacks as you can on your lineups.
If that does not make you wish to offer a Superflex format a shot, I do not understand what will.
