The Super Flexible gang is back to discuss one busy day in the NFL: Ezekiel Elliott is suspended, so what does it mean for Dak Prescott? Sammy Watkins is traded to the Rams, giving Jared Goff a shiny, new toy. Jordan Matthews “replaces” Watkins in Buffalo, where the slot is overflowing. Does Tyrod Taylor have enough weapons to be fantasy-relevant? And Carson Wentz and the Eagles face life after Matthews, and have yet to bat an eye.
Week 1 of the preseason is in the books, and the first round rookie quarterbacks played like they’re ready for prime time. Mitchell Trubisky leads the Bears to a near-win against Denver, DeShone Kizer shines against the Saints, DeShaun Watson steals the show against the Panthers, and Pat Mahomes matches Alex Smith step-for-step. Will these rookies reach their respective starting lineups by Week 1 of the regular season?
The Super Flexible Podcast has listeners! And some of them have questions! The guys get into SuperFlex strategy, both in trading and drafting quarterbacks: when do you trade your fourth QB, and what can you expect to get in return? Plus, a bonus strategy that is the gift that keeps on giving. And how soon do you draft a QB in a SuperFlex league? The guys might just find common ground on this issue.
Finally, sparks fly in another edition of “FaceOff.” This time, Jake and Addison debate the merits of drafting oldies-but-goodies Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Carson Palmer in a dynasty league. What is the value of a short-term option in a long-term game? The guys have some thoughts… and another “FaceOff” ends in controversy!
