2023 NFL Best Ball Superflex Draft 7.0
The guys (@GamblingPodcast) continue their NFL best ball draft series with a NFL best ball superflex draft. Sean and Ryan attempt to master Superflex draft loading up on QBs early like Joe Burrow, Daniel Jones and even settling for guys late like Kyle Trask.
Best Ball 7.0 is here and this one will be a best ball superflex draft. In these drafts, quarterbacks are much more valued and will typically round out the first round of the draft. Guys like Kelce and Jamar Chase and Cooper Kupp slip in amongst the first two rounds, but for the majority all the picks will be quarterbacks. With how fast the quarterbacks go, it’s hard to skip out on taking a quarterback as you could be left with someone like Russell Wilson as your starter. Another quarterback that is falling fast down boards even in a super flex league is Ryan Tannehill, who is likely to not even be starting come the season.
Calvin Ridley is a name to write down as many will most likely forget about him. He will have the opportunity to help Desmond Ridder build on a solid close to his rookie campaign and he could be feeding Ridley. Deandre Hopkins is currently lost in the NFL free agency sauce as he reportedly only wants to go to a contender and the Cardinals are approaching just releasing him. There is a theory that he can go to the Chiefs, but this seems like a possible destination for every free agent wide receiver, aka OBJ. Mike Evans or Chris Godwin are likely to be in the market as well by draft night as the Buccaneers could use one of them to make a big-time trade.
Stacks are easier to silently work in super flexes because of the higher focus on quarterbacks. If you are lucky enough to get a big-time signal caller like Burrow but aren’t able to get his weapons like Chase or Higgins, you can look to stack with your second quarterback, as you can have plenty of confidence that Burrow will always get you points. If the stars align, you can even stack both of your quarterbacks.
This wouldn’t be an episode without theorizing where Lamar goes. Plenty of teams still reserve the need for his talents, however the time passing makes a move seem less likely. As it stands now, it seems like Lamar will be a Raven next season.
From being the easily worst division in the league not too many seasons ago, the NFC East could now be the top of the NFL. The Cowboys though could be in trouble as they will most likely no longer have their dominant running game. In addition, X’s and O’s guru Head Coach Mike McCarthy is still calling plays, so their offense really could be in trouble, especially if Dak continues to turn over the ball. For the first time in a while, the Cowboys offense could be in the bottom half of the division.
