Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: 12-Team, 1QB (2024 Fantasy Football)

Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: 12-Team, 1QB (2024 Fantasy Football)

With the 2023 fantasy football season wrapped up, all eyes are starting to shift toward the off-season. In dynasty leagues, that means 2024 dynasty rookie rankings and rookie mock drafts. With that in mind, here’s a quick look at an initial 12-team, 1QB league mock draft. These rankings are preliminary and are sure to change as more information becomes available.

2024 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: 12-team, 1 QB

Round One

Pick. 1.01 – Marvin Harrison Jr. (WR – Ohio State)

The No.1 pick is often the easiest selection of the entire draft. With generational talent Marvin Harrison Jr. taking his talents to the NFL, this year figures to be much of the same. The Ohio State product is a near-lock to go No.1 overall in most 1QB rookie drafts. Harrison Jr. has a polished skillset, NFL bloodlines and has been extremely productive despite sharing targets with some of the best wide receivers in the nation.

Pick 1.02 – Malik Nabers (WR – LSU)

In most seasons, we would be calling LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers the consensus No.1 pick in 1QB rookie drafts. While Harrison Jr. looks to hold that crown this season, Nabers is a tremendous consolation prize for whoever is holding the No. 2 selection. After racking up 1,000+ yards and three touchdowns in 2022, Nabers took his game to another level this season. Nabers finished with 1,569 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.

Pick 1.03 – Rome Odunze (WR – WAS)

Although a tier below the top-two wide receivers, Washington wide receiver Rome Odunze might possess the best size/speed combination in the entire draft. Odunze profiles as your prototypical X-receiver who can both stretch the field and make tough catches in traffic.

Pick 1.04 – Brock Bowers (TE – Georgia)

Some might consider this high for a tight end, but Georgia’s Brock Bowers is a special talent at the position. Bowers burst onto the scene during his true freshman campaign and has been regarded as the unquestioned No. 1 tight end in the nation ever since. Despite playing in a run-first Georgia offense and missing half of his junior season, Bowers finished his career with 31 total touchdowns. Impressive.

Pick 1.05 – Keon Coleman (WR – Florida State)

There are questions about his ability to separate at the next level, but Florida State’s Keon Coleman has special ball skills in contested catch situations. We’ll see if it translates, but that superhero power allowed him to overcome any separation issues that may have popped up in college.

Pick 1.06 – Brian Thomas Jr. (WR – LSU)

Another size/speed wonder that profiles as an X-Receiver at the next level, LSU’s Brian Thomas Jr. becomes the second LSU Tigers wide receiver taken in the first six picks. Thomas Jr. isn’t quite as explosive as LSU teammate Nabers, but he’s emerging as a potential early-round draft pick after finishing 2023 with a career-high 1,177 receiving yards and a whopping 17 touchdown receptions.

Pick 1.07 – Caleb Williams (QB – USC)

We’ve already mentioned a couple of “generational talents” at wide receiver and tight end, so we might as well get to the QB version. Despite some questionable play at times this season, USC quarterback Caleb Williams remains the overwhelming favorite to get selected No. 1 overall by the Chicago Bears (or someone else) in the 2024 NFL Draft. It’s hard to gauge where Williams goes in 1QB drafts, but this seems like a sweet spot between the Tier Two wide receivers.

Pick 1.08 – Troy Franklin (WR – Oregon)

If you thought the BMI debates were settled after DeVonta Smith, I’ve got some bad news for you. Oregon wide receiver Troy Franklin (6’3″, 187 pounds) is sure to cause just as much uproar in the fantasy football community this off-season. Looking past his weight, Franklin has good height, speed, and an underrated ability to make people miss in the open field.

Pick 1.09 – Xavier Worthy (WR – Texas)

His weight (172 pounds) and inconsistent hands are a concern, but Texas wide receiver Xavier Worthy has a rare skillset that cannot be taught. He has speed and lots of it. Worthy’s acceleration is rare and he should turn quite a few heads at the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine. If he works through the drops, Worthy’s ceiling is limitless.

Pick 1.10 – Jayden Daniels (QB – LSU)

While most people consider Caleb Williams the QB1 in this upcoming draft class, there’s a bit of a debate over who’s No. 2. Do you draft likely QB2 off the board Drake Maye or do you draft likely QB3 Jayden Daniels? While conventional wisdom says to take the higher-drafted player, fantasy football has its own rules. Assuming both quarterbacks are early first-round draft picks, Daniels’ rushing upside gives him a slight edge right now.

Pick 1.11 – Jonathon Brooks (RB – Texas)

It took until the end of Round One, but we’ve finally reached the running back portion of our program. With no clear-cut RB1 emerging yet, we might not have a clear grasp of these positional ranks until landing spots are finalized. For now, I’m going with Texas running back Jonathon Brooks as my RB1. Brooks was emerging as one of the best running backs in the nation before his early November ACL tear, so let’s hope progress is being shown before the NFL Draft.

Pick 1.12 – Trey Benson (RB – Florida State)

Rounding out the first round is Florida State running back Trey Benson. As I mentioned earlier, landing spots matter so much more for running backs than any other position, so these are preliminary positional rankings. In 2023, Benson showed improvement as a pass-catcher and could be one of the safest running back prospects in the class.
