Even if you're in a 2QB format, it's tough to rely on Mariota, who is reportedly going to be forced to compete for the starting job heading into the 2019 season. They brought in Ryan Tannehill, who has extremely similar numbers throughout his career to Mariota despite playing with lesser talent. The worst part about Mariota is that he's declined in each of the last two seasons, as this is the time in his career where he's supposed to be coming into his own. He's nothing more than a QB3 hopeful despite all the talent around him.Some will start a debate about which quarterback will start for the Broncos, but it's going to be Flacco. There are things in Drew Lock's game that need to be worked out before he takes the field. Flacco isn't a lock to hold onto the starting job all season, though, making him a tough sell, even in 2QB formats. The weapons have been upgraded in Denver, as Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton, and Noah Fant give him plenty of weapons to throw to, though it's tough not to see them as a run-first team.

Mariota was a trainwreck last year with only 11 touchdowns and 2,500 yards but he was playing hurt for most of the season. We've seen flashes at times of a quality fantasy performer, and we all know he has the ceiling to finish within the top 10, but if you are drafting him, it merely as a QB3 with hope for more.Although the Broncos drafted Drew Lock, it wasn't until the second round so it is by no means certain that he will ever overtake Flacco for the starting job. With that said, Flacco's job isn't safe if he performs poorly again, and the receiver core certainly won't help so think of him as a QB3 in SuperFlex leagues.
