The meteoric rise of superflex fantasy football leagues has everyone going quarterback crazy, but how do 12 of the best fantasy football analysts handle the format on draft day? The Fantasy Alarm NFL Draft Guide proudly presents its 12-team Superflex Mock Draft to show you the way!




From your local home league to the Scott Fish Bowl (SFB14), superflex leagues are all the rage right now. It does seem strangely ironic as the fantasy community routinely strives to mirror the reality game with its scoring and formats, yet here we are looking to eliminate kickers and defenses while adding a second quarterback. Perhaps it’s the need to increase scoring as a 165-150 weekly score looks a lot more fun than the old-school 52-45 fantasy games, but nevertheless, this is what the people want, and we are all about satisfying your needs.

2024 Fantasy Football Mock Draft: 12-Team Superflex

You can start with a look at our superflex draft strategy article as well as our top-200 superflex rankings. They will give you a look at the overall value of quarterbacks in relation to the other positions. But remember, these are just guidelines. You never just run through a list of linear rankings that compare apples to oranges to peaches and plums. You have to see how everyone else values the players and positions. 

This is why taking part in a fantasy football mock draft is so important. A successful fantasy football draft means that you are not only picking the right players, but you are doing it at the right time and for the best value. With the quarterback position being the highest scoring in fantasy and the need to have at least two – probably three – on your roster by the end of your draft, understanding the flow and where they come off the board is paramount to your success. 

Your usual fantasy football ADP isn’t going to help you here. Every draft is different, and you will always have varying opinions and strategies, so studying what others are doing is a must.

Now the question is – what can we learn from this superflex fantasy mock draft?

Superflex Fantasy Football Mock Draft 2024 Results & Strategy

Before we begin with our fantasy football superflex mock draft strategies, we want to take a moment to thank all of our participants who donated their time and energy to help the Fantasy Alarm #Family. We pulled in some classic old-school analysts and blended them with some of the most exciting names on the rise in the fantasy industry. Their participation is greatly appreciated. Now, let’s get to my draft thoughts.

Drawing the fifth pick was a nice way to start things off as I knew, no matter how quarterback-crazy everyone might be, I was still going to land one of the elites. When that turned out to be Patrick Mahomes, my No. 1 overall, I knew it was going to be a great mock draft.

The key for me in a superflex fantasy draft is to watch the room closely, figure out who is going to grab two quarterbacks early and figure out where the value is going to be. When one position gets pushed up from its usual ADP, there is always one position that gets pushed down. When I saw some running backs go off the board before me in the second round, I knew the wide receiver value would be there for me later, so quarterbacks, running back and a top-five tight end were in my plans.

It was Mike Tyson who once said, “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth,” but no one, in my opinion, was throwing haymakers, so I stuck to my early-round assessment. By the end of the sixth round, I had two quarterbacks, three bell-cow running backs and Dalton Kincaid, who I am still thinking about pushing up to the No. 1 tight end spot in my fantasy rankings. But now it was time to attack the receiver position. I’ve waited long enough.

With seven of my next eight picks, I grabbed a variety of wideouts. Amari Cooper and Courtland Sutton are top targets on their respective teams, and I have high expectations for other guys like Christian Watson and Joshua Palmer. Rookie Keon Coleman could be a big hit, Darnell Mooney has some upside potential in that new Atlanta Falcons offense and Tyler Boyd is a great bench asset with a solid floor to mix in.

I may have overdone it with the number of wideouts as I ignored the running back position until the late-round Chuba Hubbard pick, but we only need to start two. I feel like I’m covered. I also added that third quarterback to cover me on the bye weeks and even added an upside tight end. Considering the early-round strategy, I’m pretty happy with the way this team turned out.

What did everyone else think about their fantasy superflex mock draft experience? Here we go, in no particular order:

Jon Impemba Said…

We all have plans and strategies going into a draft but oftentimes you have to yin when everyone yangs or readjust your strategy when players you want come off the board ahead of you. 

For me, I feel like I had the perfect draft. It was as if I was drafting alone and had the pick of the player pool each round to make my selections. This being a superflex draft, I knew I wanted to grab two top-end QBs, and I did so snagging Kyler Murray in the first round and Tua Tagovailoa in the third. At running back, both Saquon Barkley and Kyren Williams were available in the second and fourth rounds with the emphasis on quarterbacks and wide receivers going early. 

At receiver, I reached a bit to grab Mike Evans in Round 5 but was thrilled to see Michael Pittman and Terry McLaurin available in the next two. At tight end, George Kittle, coming off of a 1,000-yard season, was there in round eight and I filled out my flex spot with D'Andre Swift in the ninth.

When it came to my bench, it was hard to do better than Austin Ekeler, Dallas Goedert and Rashid Shaheed in Rounds 10-13. For my QB3 I snagged Gardner Minshew before some dart throws to finish out the draft. It's too bad this was only a mock draft, because I'd be more than happy to put some money behind it.

Dave Richard Chimed In…

My typical strategy in superflex is to corral at least one, if not two, top-tier QBs early on. Picking at 12th, I should have taken two QBs with my first two picks – the drop-off from Joe Burrow to Justin Herbert might be wider than the drop-off from Ja'Marr Chase (who I took at 2.01) to Davante Adams (who I could have had at 4.01 had I taken Burrow). 

But that's the only do-over I would want. I am thrilled with the RBs I stole at the 5/6 turn, not to mention the depth I built at that position.

From The Office Of Dr. Roto

After being thrown for a vicious loop after dropping from 1.1 to 1.11, I selected Tyreek Hill and Bijan Robinson instead of piling onto the QB heap in the early rounds. One of my favorite things to do in any draft is zig when the rest of the draft is zagging. 

This strategy allowed me to add De'Von Achane, Davante Adams, Zay Flowers, Chris Godwin and Evan Engram to the mix before settling for my QBs. Yes, my QBs (Mayfield, Young and Nix) are really mid, but I hope to make up for it with some outstanding stats from the rest of my skill players.

*Editor's Note: The original draft order was reset accidentally, and we could not change it back as the draft had just begun. Personally, I much prefer hearing what the Doc had to say about his first pick not being Christian McCaffrey.

Yvette Laboy Had Plenty Of Thoughts

It’s July, and as America gets ready to celebrate the Declaration of Independence, us fantasy football nerds are ready to light our internal nerd flame. And nothing sparks that fire better than a mock draft! The casual player may snub their nose at picking players just for pretend. But as I’ve discovered in my long career as a professional player, practice is essential. Did you see Simone Biles floor routine for the Olympic trials? How many times do you think she had to practice that? I don’t know about you, but I am only going for gold!

When it comes to mock drafting, I use it as an opportunity to make decisions I may not be so bold to in my real leagues. This is the time to see what happens when you take an RB where you would normally take a QB.  And that’s exactly what I did in this SuperFlex mock draft with the 1:02 spot. IRDL (In Real Draft Life), I would lean towards taking a quarterback since they tend to go quickly, which was no exception in this draft. But I pulled the trigger, effortlessly, on CMC. I know to most that's an easy pick, but for me, it’s nerve racking skipping your opportunity on one of the elite quarterbacks.

By the time the draft whipped back around me, it was slim pickings. I opted to take Jayden Daniels. He has a lot of upside, but we’ve never seen him take one snap in the NFL. Not sure how comfortable I would feel having him as my QB1 (IRDL). My next pick was Puka Nakua, and if anyone should make me feel comfortable about Jayden Daniels being able to produce as a rookie, it’s him! So now after three picks, I feel comfortable having top-tier running backs and wide receivers.

In sticking with my running back themed mock, I grabbed Pacheco next followed up by the cherry-on-top pick in Travis Kelce. He was literally staring at me right in the face, holding a friendship bracelet, like pick me. How could I not? We all saw him in Andy Reid’s face last year. Does that look like someone that wants to lose?

Now I’m set in three positions with elite players: running back, wide receiver and tight end. I still need another quarterback. The only guy left at this point is Matthew Stafford. Well, now I have a buddy for Puka. I also see your Rhomandre Stevenson still has no home, so I’ll take him. He’s already alone on the Patriots, so I feel bad. I also picked up a friend for the new guy in Jahan Datson. Some other players I drafted were Rashee Rice, J.K. Dobbins, Jerry Jeudy, Michael Wilson, Xavier Leggette, Tyler Allgeier and Javonte Williams

So, my bench is looking like a bench. But a nice bench and that’s what you want. All in all, I would say this draft was a success. Thank you, Howard Bender, for allowing me to draft 18 rounds amongst the best of the business. I encourage everyone to join as many fantasy football mock drafts as they can! Go Browns!

In The Words Of Dalton Del Don…

It stung to have Anthony Richardson stolen before my first pick, but I was otherwise happy with the results of the draft. Superflex leagues can be tricky, and I was fortunate to get the last QB in a tier in Round 3 after passing on the position in Round 2. 

I love my wide receiver depth and somehow ended up drafting five rookies in the first 13 picks. It’s a shame we aren’t playing this one out.

According To John Laub…

In superflex drafts, I like to acquire one of the top six quarterbacks to anchor my roster if possible. I had the third pick overall and selected Anthony Richardson. In a competitive league, I want to draft a high-ceiling player, and the Colts’ dual-threat signal provides a massive upside in Shane Steichen’s offense. It also allows me to bypass the position for a while in order to build my other positions.

In the next two rounds, I sought two top 10 running backs and selected Jahmyr Gibbs and Travis Etienne. The biggest decision now confronted my draft strategy: do I take a receiver or pivot over to the tight end position? No tight ends had been taken, and I was ecstatic to grab my top one Trey McBride. Afterwards, it was imperative to dip into the remaining receivers. With the next four selections, I added DeVonta Smith, Christian Kirk, George Pickens and Diontae Johnson.

Finally, I could wait no longer for a second quarterback and plucked Geno Smith in Round 9. For a third quarterback, I took one of the last starters on the board – Daniel Jones. All three have different bye weeks, which is important to focus upon when selecting in a superflex draft. I prefer to draft rookie runners as backups. Blake Corum and Kimani Vidal remained available in Rounds 10 and 11 and decorate my roster. Superflex is my favorite fantasy football format to play, and I really like how my team looks heading into training camp.

What Jim Coventry Thought

In this draft, I tried to add as many players as possible from strong NFL offenses. For the most part, the way the board fell allowed me to do that. Picking eighth, taking Dak Prescott in the first round was a strong start. Then, seeing that this draft didn’t overemphasize QBs early, I waited until the fourth round to add Trevor Lawrence. In these superflex leagues, it’s crucial to read the board to get a feel for when teams add their second QB.

In terms of running back, I have three that I am happy building my team with and using the ‘hero RB’ approach. Breece Hall was one of those options. Hall fell to me in the second round. Afterwards, I cobbled together a group that included James Conner, Chase Brown and Kendre Miller in the hopes of having a reliable RB2.

Although my WR group may have uncertainty for a variety of reasons, Drake London, Nico Collins and Hollywood Brown are all in offenses that may optimize each of them. Also, each of those players should be on excellent offenses. The depth group is highlighted by my breakout player of the year Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who should take over the No. 2 role in Seattle. Later picks Jermaine Burton and Khalil Shakir are tied to elite QBs. Both of those receivers will likely play the slot in a league that defenses play zone 73% of the time.

Yes, Kyle Pitts has been disappointing for the last two years. However, I’m buying into OC Zac Robinson and QB Kirk Cousins to get the most out of the tight end. Since I spent a sixth round pick on Pitts, I didn’t back him up until late. In the 16th round, I added Luke Musgrave, who also is part of an excellent offense.

Overall, it is always important to have a feel for how players fall off the board at each position. That realization helped keep me from being frozen out when positional runs occurred. As a result, I thought I had a balanced roster with enough upside players among my reserves to give this team a chance to be dangerous.

The Billy Muzio Fly-By

Drafting from the 4th position in an industry superflex fantasy mock draft, I was fortunate to have Jalen Hurts fall to me. Hurts, my 2nd-ranked player on my superflex big board, was a blessing. Brock Purdy, the QB6 in total points last season, was still available at the end of round 2 as the 11th QB off the board. I considered stacking with A.J. Brown but decided to take my chances at the WR position, knowing the value of QBs would push other positional players down the board.

In round 3, I selected Brandon Aiyuk, stacking him with Purdy to invest more in the San Francisco offense. In hindsight, I missed Marvin Harrison, who was still available and would have been my pick had I noticed him. In round 4, Chris Olave fell to me, and in round 5, I selected Nabers, filling my three starting WR positions.

In rounds 6, 7 and 8, I tripled down on the RB position with Alvin Kamara, Aaron Jones and Jaylen Warren, all of whom get a boost in PPR scoring as receiving backs. Kamara has had 75 receptions or more in 5 of 7 career years. Aaron Jones has had over 47 receptions in 4 of 7 career years and was on track to surpass that despite playing only 11 games last season. Jaylen Warren was the RB5 in receptions with 61 in 2023.

In round 9, I selected Jayden Reed as my WR4, then took my 3rd and final QB, Russell Wilson, in round 10. I followed up with my one and only TE, David Njoku, in round 11. In a redraft format with access to waivers, I believe you should only select one TE unless it's a TE premium league.

In rounds 12, 13 and 14, I took three more WRs: Jakobi Meyers, Mike Williams and Gabe Davis, bringing my total to seven WRs in a must-start-3 league. I finished the draft with four straight RBs, all handcuffs with the potential to contribute or take on larger roles as the season progresses. My final four picks were Rico Dowdle in round 15, Tyron Tracy Jr. in round 16, Will Shipley in round 17 and Evan Hull in round 18. All these RBs are slotted to be the RB2 on their respective teams and have a chance to have meaningful snaps and rush shares to start the season. If anything happens to their backfield mates, they could emerge as the starting RB any given week.

My final roster selections in this 18-round superflex PPR league included: 3 QBs, 7 RBs, 7 WRs and 1 TE. Hammering the RB position late in drafts gives you maximum potential output should they emerge as starters or take on more meaningful roles.

And Chris Meaney Had This to Say:

At pick nine in the draft, I ended the first-round quarterback run. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s important to address the QB position with at least one of your first couple of picks which I did with Jordan Love and Jared Goff, but I was thrilled to get CeeDee Lamb as my WR1 due to my place in the draft. I’m not crazy about Stefon Diggs, but I felt there was value at WR24 and WR31 with Tee Higgins. Brian Thomas felt like a reach looking back (Round 10), but I was thrilled to get my hands on Ladd McConkey in the previous round. I’m buying all the hype around Justin Herbert’s new wide receiver.

The running back position is the weakest part of my squad. Tony Pollard had 60 red zone rushing attempts last season (second behind CMC), but he only found the end zone five times. He converted on just three of his 17 carries inside the five in 2023 and he was 2-for-7 in those situations in 2022. Nick Chubb will likely be on my bench for the first few weeks of the season as he recovers from a torn ACL and MCL, and when you watch Ezekiel Elliot play football, it feels like he’s pushing 60 years old. 

However, I’m hoping he’ll get all the goal-line attempts Pollard received last year. If he does, he could be worthy of a FLEX play throughout the season. I’ll need King Derrick Henry to turn the clock back and hold it down until Chubb returns. He joined a Baltimore team that led the league in rushing last season to go along with a league-high 49.9% rushing rate. Gus Edwards led all backs in goal-line attempts last season, so Henry is a big-time winner in the offseason. Shoutout to Henry's new teammate Isaiah Likely who I believe is in for a breakout season with the Ravens.

As for my quarterbacks, Love finished as QB5 in fantasy points per game last season and Goff plays indoors in 14 of his 17 games this season. I was happy to pair him up with Sam LaPorta who found the end zone 10 times in his rookie season. I added Romeo Doubs in the 14th round to get a mini-Packers stack, and it was Doubs who was tied for the team-high with eight receiving touchdowns in 2023.

Overall, this was a fun draft with a lot of sharp minds. Superflex drafts tend to get weird and if you wait a bit on QB you can find some terrific values. I like what Tera Roberts did in the one spot. She took four wide receivers in a row after selecting Josh Allen, and she still came away with Zamir White, Raheem Mostert and Tyjae Spears. Even with all that, Tera added Deshaun Watson and J.J. McCarthy to her QB room.
