Pick-a-Player: Saquon Barkley, Lamar Jackson, or Patrick Mahomes

The Footballguys staff, Shark Pool, and Facebook answer a dilemma in a superflex league

This article is about a 14-minute read.

The premise of a Pick-a-Player question is as follows:

  • Three comparable players are available.
  • The draft is at a stage where these players are usually drafted.
  • You can take one of them or pass on all three for someone else.

Every few days, we ask a question of three groups of people -- the Footballguys staff, the great people following the Footballguys Facebook page, and the active members of our Shark Pool message board. If you'd like to answer a future Pick-a-Player question, there will be another one every few days from now through most of August. Plus, there is a lot of other content there as well. Follow the Facebook page and/or join the Shark Pool, and you can take part in the great discussions happening every day.

It's the 1.02 pick in a 12-team, non-PPR, super-flex draft. Christian McCaffrey was the top pick. Would you take Saquon Barkley, Lamar Jackson, or Patrick Mahomes II? Or would you pass on all three?

Starting Lineup:

  • 1 quarterback
  • 2 running backs
  • 3 wide receivers
  • 1 tight end
  • 1 superflex (QB/RB/WR/TE)
  • 1 kicker
  • 1 defense

The Results

And the winner is -- a mix of Mahomes and Barkley! See the percentages below.
