Fantasy Football: June Superflex mock draft shows very different approaches to getting your quarterbacks

I love it when mock drafts are fun, and we had a fantastic one Tuesday night during our live stream on YouTube. It was a 12-team, Superflex mock draft, and I highly encourage you to watch the results as it happened here.

This was a 0.5 PPR league, and we had Stephie Smalls of FTN Fantasy, Troy King of Football Guys and LaQuan Jones of Real Deal Fantasy join our CBS Sports crew for this mock draft. And there were plenty of interesting draft picks that we debated.

For example, LaQuan drafted Ryan Tannehill over Russell Wilson in Round 2. Dave Richard drafted Joe Burrow over Davante Adams in Round 3. And Adam Aizer selected Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb with back-to-back picks in Rounds 4 and 5.

There were other selections that were questionable, but let’s go back to the Tannehill pick because this was the first mock draft we did after Julio Jones was traded from Atlanta to Tennessee. The addition of Jones is a huge boost for Tannehill, which is why he was the No. 7 quarterback off the board behind Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Kyler Murray, Lamar Jackson, Dak Prescott and Justin Herbert. I wouldn’t have drafted Tannehill that early, but I certainly get the appeal with his upgraded receiving corps.

A.J. Brown was the eighth receiver off the board, and he was drafted in Round 4 — four picks after Calvin Ridley, who is now the No. 1 receiver in Atlanta. I love both of these guys, but I would also draft Ridley ahead of Brown now.

Jones was drafted in Round 5 as the No. 16 receiver in this league, and that’s a solid spot for him. He loses Fantasy value going to the Titans, but he’s still worth drafting as a quality No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all formats.

Kyle Pitts went in Round 7 here, and he might be a steal in that spot. He was the No. 6 tight end off the board behind Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, George Kittle, Mark Andrews and T.J. Hockenson, and Pitts is a winner with Jones no longer in Atlanta.

Russell Gage should be considered a sleeper now with Jones gone, and he was drafted in Round 12. And Matt Ryan went in Round 5 as the No. 18 quarterback in this draft.

In a one-quarterback league, Ryan likely isn’t getting drafted, but he’s a decent Superflex option in this format. He was drafted after Ryan Fitzpatrick and one spot ahead of Carson Wentz, which is a good range for Ryan now that he’s without Jones.

In looking at this mock draft, three Fantasy managers started their teams with two quarterbacks with their first two picks — Dave (Murray and Burrow), Heath Cummings (Jackson and Wilson) and LaQuan (Prescott and Tannehill). You should examine their teams if you like this strategy.

Chris Towers, on the other hand, waited until Round 7 to draft his first quarterback with Tua Tagovailoa. He also got Justin Fields in Round 8, Trey Lance in Round 9 and Cam Newton in Round 11. This could work out great for Chris if two of these guys are successful, especially since his first six picks were Aaron Jones, Tyreek Hill, D’Andre Swift, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, D.J. Moore and Diontae Johnson.

For my team, I drafted one quarterback with my first six picks, which was Jalen Hurts in Round 2. I started my roster from No. 6 overall with Alvin Kamara, and then I selected Adams in Round 3, Terry McLaurin in Round 4, Robert Woods in Round 5 and Travis Etienne in Round 6.

In Round 7, I gambled on Deshaun Watson, who could be a top five Fantasy quarterback this season or not play at all depending on his off-field situation. I also took another questionable quarterback in Round 9 with Jameis Winston, who could be a star if he wins the starting job in New Orleans. And I drafted a fourth quarterback in Round 11 with Sam Darnold, who is insurance for Watson and Winston.

The rest of my team is Michael Carter, Zack Moss and Darrell Henderson at running back, and Amon-Ra St. Brown and Tre’Quan Smith are my reserve receivers. Adam Trautman, one of my favorite sleepers, is my tight end. I like this team a lot, and it could be awesome, especially if all of my Saints (Kamara, Winston, Trautman and Smith) come through with a big performance this year.

In this league, all touchdowns are worth six points, and we award one point for every 10 yards rushing and receiving and one point for every 25 yards passing. We also award 0.5 points for every reception. We feature a starting lineup of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, FLEX (RB/WR/TE), SUPERFLEX (QB/RB/WR/TE) and DST. There also are six reserve spots for a 16-round draft.
