SUPERFLEX ROUND 6 ANALYSIS
Limited Time QB Sale! Get Them Before They’re Gone!
Even though Superflex doesn’t require owners to start a second QB, it’s without a doubt the optimal strategy, since the QB position scores more points than any other in fantasy. With the demand for QBs essentially doubling, it’s no surprise to see them fly off the board relatively early in TwoQB and Superflex drafts. That’s exactly what happened in the sixth round, as eight of the 12 picks were signal callers. This massive run is a great representation of what you could potentially see in your drafts as the demand for the position starts to greatly outweigh the supply the farther you get into the draft.
When a run like this occurs, drafters are left with two options – fall in line and grab a QB before all the appealing starters are off the board, or soak up value at RB and WR as they slide down draft boards. That’s exactly what we saw four of our drafters do. The choice is up to you, which is why it’s important to conduct mock drafts of your own to determine a strategy you’re most comfortable with.
2015 MVP Bounce Back?
After having a down year in 2016, Cam Newton slid all the way down to pick 61st overall in this draft. It would appear Cort Smith got extreme value here considering Newton’s TwoQB ADP is 46th overall. In terms of fantasy, Newton has always offered extreme upside because of his added rushing ability. It appears that’s not going any time soon, as Newton is already telling the media at training camp he has no plans to stop running.
The Panthers also have an extremely fantasy-friendly schedule in 2017, as 11 of their 16 games are against the Saints (twice), Buccaneers (twice), Falcons, Packers, Bears, Lions, Jets, Dolphins, and 49ers. Warren Sharp used Vegas forecasted win totals to identify the Panthers as having the ninth-easiest schedule in the league this season.
Can Corey Davis Produce In Year 1?
At first glance, I thought Corey Davis jumped out as a reach in the sixth round. Well, according to 2QB ADP data, A. Don Davenport actually got him at a bit of a value. Davenport landed Davis at 71 overall, and his ADP is currently 64 overall. Still, as much as I love Davis, I can’t justify taking him this high on a run-first team in a crowded receiving corps. I am significantly lower on Davis than his ADP would suggest and prefer numerous WRs that went after him in this draft. Stay tuned for future round write ups to find out who they were.
I reached out to Davenport to see why he is so bullish on Davis this year:
The starting WR1 ranks thinned out as I anxiously waited for 6.02 to get to me with Pierre Garcon, Golden Tate, Willie Snead and a few other WRs being snapped up. This left only a few team WR1s like Jeremy Maclin, Julian Edelman, Cameron Meredith and Tyreek Hill, along with Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis.
Davis, the fifth-overall pick in the NFL Draft, is paired up with young TwoQBs.com favorite Marcus Mariota. He has no character concerns like Tyreek Hill and his competition for targets are Eric Decker, Delanie Walker and Rishard Matthews. What I noted early with Davis was his high Wonderlic score of 31 and his 70.3% target-to-catch rate in his last year of college football. I think Davis will take over as WR1 in short order, either from Decker slowing down at age 30, or the coaching staff pressing Davis forward, wanting to justify their draft choice.
Let’s not forget Decker made only nine catches in the three games he played last year. Davis is the future WR of the Titans, and even if he is slow to get up to speed in the early part of the year, I expect him to catch up quickly.
