Dynasty Fantasy Football Startup Mock Draft: 2QB, 12-Team (2024)

Dynasty Fantasy Football Startup Mock Draft: 2QB, 12-Team (2024)

We continue rolling on with a 2QB/SuperFlex mock draft today. I think 2QB/SuperFlex leagues are the most fun to play in for that reason. The traditional way of building a league winner varies so much and you can build your team in so many different ways. Playing this format has been the most fun for me as a fantasy manager by a wide margin. Here are some takeaways from this mock and where I am at on roster construction and some general player thoughts:

  • In a 2QB/SuperFlex format, I try to get two quarterbacks within my first three picks. This is probably the same approach the majority of the fantasy community takes but if you look at the draft board for this mock, there were a few teams that decided to load up on other positions first.
  • With that point in mind, the quarterback position is probably as deep as it has been in a few years. There are 15 players at the position that I would be comfortable with as my QB1 heading into 2024 and that doesn’t include anyone from this year’s rookie class.
  • As far as my roster construction goes, I targeted quarterbacks and wide receivers early. The shelf life of those positions far exceeds that of the running back position and they tend to give you a better value just based on how many seasons of raw production you get.
  • I banged this drum in my 1QB mock and I will do it again here: Get as many Green Bay pieces as you can. The Packers are relatively cheap but this offense is young and explosive. Jordan Love and Co. are going to be tough to handle in the coming years.

Dynasty Rookie Draft Kit

Dynasty Mock Draft: 2QB 12-Team, Startup

Round 1, Pick 10: CJ Stroud (QB – HOU)

As I said above, in a 2QB/SuperFlex format, I almost always target the quarterback position with my first two picks. Being at the end of the first round means the Lamar Jackson/Patrick Mahomes tier is long gone but Stroud makes for a fine target here. He’s coming off a rookie season where he threw for 4,108 yards and 23 touchdowns, making himself one of the leading candidates for Offensive Rookie of the Year. With Nico Collins, Tank Dell, and Dalton Schultz on board for the foreseeable future, it is wheels up for the Texans and Stroud.

Round 2, Pick 3: Jordan Love (QB – GB)

I wrote this in my 1QB Mock Draft: “I would encourage everyone to get in on the ground level of the Green Bay offense while you still can. Love’s dynasty ADP is going to jump 4-5 rounds over the coming months and he is going to nudge his way into the top-12 at the position in short order. Love finished seventh in the NFL in passing yards (4,159) and second in touchdowns (32) and his nine games with multiple touchdowns and no interceptions led the league.” After seeing how Green Bay’s offense dusted Dallas over the weekend, the ADP jump might only take a couple of weeks to come to fruition.

Round 3, Pick 10: Puka Nacua (WR – LAR)

Nacua broke rookie records with 105 receptions for 1,486 yards this season. He then went into Detroit and caught nine passes for 181 yards and a touchdown in the Wild Card game. As long as Sean McVay and Matthew Stafford are with the Rams, Nacua is going to be a top-10 dynasty receiver. While he lacks the flash of Justin Jefferson and the explosive play ability of CeeDee Lamb, Nacua shreds zone defenses, a valuable trait as the league transitions to more Cover 3 and Cover 2 concepts. He is a great WR1 to get in the late-third round here.

Round 4, Pick 3: Brandon Aiyuk (WR – SF)

Aiyuk still feels underrated despite a year in which he set career highs in yards (1,342) and yards per game (83.9). He can be overshadowed in the 49ers offense due to their superstars on that side of the ball but Aiyuk is turning into one of the best receivers in football. For the second year in a row, he led San Francisco in receiving and he has improved his yardage totals in each of his four years as a pro. He makes for a rock-solid WR2 in a dynasty with the upside for much more.

Round 5, Pick 10: Kyren Williams (RB – LAR)

Williams could be a polarizing player this offseason because McVay cycles through running backs with extreme regularity. While all signs should point to Williams being the lead back for the Rams in 2024 (and beyond), he is a tough evaluation for me. He led the league with 95.3 rushing yards per game this season and his 260 touches in just 12 games put him in bell-cow territory. All things point to Williams being a stud RB1 just as long as the Rams do not draft someone this spring.

Round 6, Pick 3: Nico Collins (WR – HOU)

I am a big fan of Collins and I get the sense the public hasn’t quite caught on to just how good he is. He caught 80 passes for 1,297 yards, and eight touchdowns this season as Stroud elevated the entire Houston offense. Collins had three games with over 150 yards this season, giving him one of the highest ceilings of any receiver in football. He should be considered an elite dynasty asset in all formats and getting him as the WR3 on this team feels like stealing.

Round 7, Pick 10: Rashee Rice (WR – KC)

I do not anticipate Rice lasting until the seventh round this spring but if he falls this far, you click his name every time. Rice is not only tied to the best football player on the planet in Patrick Mahomes, but he earned the trust of Andy Reid. Beginning in Week 12, Rice had at least 11.7 PPR points in every game he played and three games where he finished with over 100 yards receiving. He usurped Travis Kelce as the top option in the Kansas City passing game by season’s end, making him a great mid-round target across all formats.

Round 8, Pick 3: De’Von Achane (RB – MIA)

This is my least favorite pick of the draft but the running back was getting thin. Achane’s ceiling is undeniably high and might be among the best in all of football. He averaged an absurd 7.8 YPC this year rushing for 800 yards and eight touchdowns on just 103 carries. Miami fed their running backs this year and while Achane will never get 20 touches per game, he can has shown that he doesn’t need volume to thrive. Durability is a major concern but I am guessing I would try to package him for a player I was more of a believer in as I prefer my running backs to have less weekly volatility.

Round 9, Pick 10: Jayden Reed (WR – KC)

I am a little discouraged by Reed’s 46% snap share from the wild card round, which was less than Romeo Doubs and Dontayvion Wicks. It looked like he had earned a bigger role in the offense but it goes to show just how deep the Packers’ young receiving core is. I still have high hopes for Reed, who finished the season with a 16/253/3 line in his past three games. Jordan Love looks like he is the real deal and as I have mentioned before: Get in on the ground level of the Packers while you can.

Round 10, Pick 3: Sam LaPorta (TE – DET)

Even as a rookie, Laporta has already established himself as one of the elite tight ends in football. He led the position in fantasy points and touchdowns, making him arguably the dynasty TE1. Laporta will go higher than the 10th Round in startups this offseason so if you want him, be prepared to get aggressive on him.

Round 11, Pick 10: Tyjae Spears (RB – TEN)

Spears will be part of a big change in Tennessee. Mike Vrabel’s firing combined with Derrick Henry‘s pending departure should represent a big shift in offensive philosophy. How Spears fits into that remains to be seen but he profiles as a potential three-down running back as things currently stand. Spears had 52 receptions as a rookie as he was the primary passing and third-down back for the Titans. If Tennessee decides to make him the feature back, he should be no worse than a fantasy RB2.

Round 12, Pick 3: Tank Dell (WR- HOU)

Dell’s late-season fibula injury probably nicks his value a bit. We’ve seen injuries like this linger and I would anticipate that Dell is less than 100% to begin the season. When he does get back to full health, he will pair with Collins to give Stroud one of the best 1-2 receiver combos in the NFL. Like Collins, Dell has a big ceiling twice finishing with 145+ yards in a game this season. His 709 yards was 8th best among all rookie receivers despite him only playing 11 games. If Dell slips outside of the top 100 picks in any format, he is a smashing value.

Round 13, Pick 10: Zamir White (RB – LV)

Like Tyjae Spears, White will be part of an offseason of change although if they decide to keep Antonio Pierce, it will be far less drastic. The real question for White is how Las Vegas handles Josh Jacobs pending free agency. If Jacobs walks, White would be in line to be a feature back in Las Vegas, a role he handled well down the stretch in 2023.

Round 14, Pick 3: Will Levis (QB – TEN)

Coming away with a third quarterback was important to me and Levis was the best of what is left. Levis had an up-and-down rookie season, highlighted by a four-touchdown performance in his first start and a 300-yard game in a December win over Miami. He struggled to put up gaudy numbers in Tennessee’s run-heavy offense but the aforementioned changes coming with Mike Vrabel’s departure should help his development. Levis has a big arm and is a good enough athlete to extend plays when needed. He makes for a perfect QB3 target in this format.
