SUPERFLEX ROUND 8 ANALYSIS
THE QB RUN CONTINUES
Five more QBs were drafted in the eighth round, continuing the heavy run at the position. If you’ve been following along with our Round 1 through Round 7 draft recaps, this should come as no surprise. With the optimal strategy in Superflex being to start two QBs, we saw five owners grab either their second starter or their QB3. As for my favorite QB pick of the round, it was without a doubt, Carson Palmer. More on that … now.
CARSON PALMER = VALUE
I’m starting to fall more in love with where you can get Carson Palmer in drafts, especially in TwoQB and Superflex leagues. Sean Slavin was able to land him at QB22 in this draft, which is right in line with his 2QB ADP of QB21 as of July 27, 2o17. Despite the narrative that Palmer is done, he was the overall QB8 over the final eight weeks in 2016. Additionally, he benefits from continuity in the coaching staff and having vertical assassin Bruce Arians on his side. Then add weapons in David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown, and J.J. Nelson and a favorable schedule Warren Sharp has pegged for the fourth easiest in the league using Vegas forecasted win totals.
C.J. ANDERSON – STEAL OR TRAP?
C.J. Anderson is a great example of a player who can fall down 2QB/superflex draft boards due to the increased emphasis on drafting QBs early. Anderson has an MFL10 ADP in the early sixth, yet slid to the beginning of the eighth round in this draft.
Although the recent injury news on Devontae Booker came out after our draft concluded, Anderson still looked like a steal either way. Cort Smith was able to land him at No. 85 overall even though Anderson boasts a 2QB ADP of 76th overall. There is risk involved, as recent reports state “Denver’s looking to get Jamaal Charles eight or 10 touches a game,” but much of that risk was mitigated where Smith drafted Anderson. He’s still the favorite to lead the Broncos in carries and has flashed in limited playing time over the past three seasons.
WIDE RECEIVERS WITH STARTING ROLES ABOUND
The WR position goes deep in all leagues this season, but especially in 2QB and Superflex leagues. Look no further than the four WRs we saw drafted in Round 8. Jeremy Maclin projects as the WR1 on a Ravens team with 345 targets up for grabs. Baltimore has thrown the most passes in the league in back-to-back years.
Cameron Meredith also projects as the WR1 in Chicago with Alshon Jeffery out of the picture, and he already showed the Bears he can be counted on, out-producing Jeffery in multiple receiving metrics a year ago.
I’m bullish on Randall Cobb, and I wrote about why he’s My Favorite Dynasty Buy-Low Target earlier this offseason. Still, I love him in redraft for many of the same reasons. His price has dipped, yet he still offers a ton of upside catching passes from Aaron Rodgers.
The only WR taken in this round I’m not high on was DeVante Parker. Still, there is no denying his talent and heavy puff pieces have been written about him all offseason.1
