Last year RotoViz Overtime hosts and listeners had fantastic seasons in FFPC best ball contests. What happens when they get together for our Superflex Best Ball Extravaganza? This happens.

Colm Kelly and I had a chance to draft with the Overtime community last Sunday. It was an absolute blast, and the trends and decisions will help you address some of the difficult choices you’ll face in your own draft.

The FFPC Superflex tournament is one of the best formats out there, and we’ve got you covered with numerous lessons in the Best Ball Workshop. In Part 1 of the series, Ben Gretch and I drafted a team for Stealing Bananas. With the 1.11, we eschewed QB early, and I explained why that can be a mistake.

QB-QB Start in FFPC SF 2020-2021

The QB-QB start has been quite effective, and this falls in line with Blair Andrews’ 2021 research from the slightly different Classic format. Blair and I made a nice return playing those dynamics in 2021 drafts.

In Part 2, I broke down the second half of that draft, exploring our approach for rescuing the build. We ended up with four QBs, the preferred approach if you pass on the position early. Unfortunately, our build of Justin Fields/Marcus Mariota/Kenny Pickett/Geno Smith already looks outdated. If you had to place a current bet, the highest-scoring QB in Atlanta would be Desmond Ridder, in Pittsburgh would be Mitchell Trubisky, and in Seattle would be Baker Mayfield. (This theme will rear its head later in this particular draft.)

This is another reason the QB Window ends up dictating best ball titles every year. Even if you guess right on the highest-scoring QB in unsettled circumstances, you’re likely to miss out on a chunk of the season that’s important.

In Part 3, I profiled a draft with Blair where we made a contrarian choice to select an RB early even though we held the 1.03. Can this work? By virtue of being a 2-RB, 2-WR, 1-TE, 1-SF, 1-Flex format, depth at the WR position becomes less valuable because starting RBs and TEs make up a higher percentage of the starting lineup than in a normal 2-Flex league. As a result, an anchor QB/anchor RB strategy also yields good results.

Win the Flex Is Live!

Blair has also updated the Win the Flex tool for 2022, and its results are indispensable in crafting big-picture strategy. In this piece I’ll dive into the pluses and minuses of attacking specific positions early.

Can an absolutely crazy build win in the FFPC Superflex tournament? We’re about to find out.
