Dynasty Fantasy Football Mock Draft: C.J. Stroud, Malik Nabers, Rhamondre Stevenson, Jonathon Brooks

Dynasty Fantasy Football Mock Draft: C.J. Stroud, Malik Nabers, Rhamondre Stevenson, Jonathon Brooks

While the 2024 season is still months away, that doesn’t matter to dynasty fantasy football players. Now is the perfect time for a dynasty startup draft, with the NFL Draft just around the corner.

I am picking second in this 12-team, superflex PPR-scoring dynasty mock draft. The lineup for this mock draft is one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, two flex, one superflex and eight bench spots.

My strategy for this mock draft was to build for the future. Had this been a real startup draft with other players, I would have tried to move back in every round and acquire future rookie picks. Despite not being able to trade in this mock draft, I didn’t draft anyone over the age of 28 and only selected three players not on their rookie deal. Furthermore, I selected 11 rookies in this 18-round mock draft. Here’s the full results of my latest dynasty startup fantasy football mock draft. Below we dive into a few of those selections.

Dynasty Startup Mock Draft: Superflex, PPR

Round 1, Pick 2 – C.J. Stroud (QB – HOU) 

Taking Stroud as the second quarterback off the board behind Josh Allen is bold. Yet, the Offensive Rookie of the Year award winner has an argument to be the 1.01 pick in startup dynasty superflex drafts. The former Ohio State star joined Tom Brady and Joe Montana to lead the NFL in passing yards per game and touchdown-to-interception ratio. However, Stroud is the only one to do it as a rookie. Plus, the Texans recently added Stefon Diggs.

Round 4, Pick 11 – Malik Nabers (WR – LSU)

For the third consecutive pick, a rookie player joins my team. Landing Nabers at the end of the fourth round is a steal, especially since many believe he is a better wide receiver prospect than Marvin Harrison Jr. Nabers’ ability to play at all three levels should easily translate to the NFL, regardless of who is his quarterback.

Round 7, Pick 2 – Rhamondre Stevenson (RB – NE) 

Last year was one to forget for Stevenson. The Patriots’ offense was a disaster and the star running back missed time with injuries. However, he was RB7 in 2022, averaging 14.7 fantasy points per game, a higher average than Alvin Kamara. While New England added Antonio Gibson in free agency, that shouldn’t keep Stevenson from having a massive workload in the final year of his rookie contract.

Round 10, Pick 11 – Jonathon Brooks (RB – Texas) 

While he had to wait his turn at Texas behind Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson, Brooks was outstanding in 2023. He had 1,139 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns in 11 games before tearing an ACL against Oklahoma State. Brooks also flashed star potential in the passing game, totaling 25 receptions for 286 yards and a touchdown. If he lands with the Dallas Cowboys during the NFL Draft, as many expect, Brooks’ ADP will rise at least 2-3 rounds by the end of May.
