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

The 2024 NFL Draft is less than three weeks away, and the rumor mill is on fire. More importantly, it means dynasty rookie drafts are almost here. While things will change during the NFL Draft, let’s dive into a 12-team, Superflex, half-point PPR dynasty rookie mock draft.

2024 Dynasty Fantasy Football Guide

2024 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: 12-Team, Half PPR, Superflex

Round 1

Pick 1.01 – Caleb Williams (QB – USC)

Despite some noise from a few in the media saying the Chicago Bears should draft Jayden Daniels with the first overall pick, Williams will be the top selection. Many have compared the former USC star to Patrick Mahomes. Even if he is only 75% as good as the superstar quarterback, Williams is a slam-dunk 1.01 pick in Superflex rookie drafts.

Pick 1.02 – Jayden Daniels (QB – LSU)

Daniels has risen up NFL draft boards and dynasty rookie rankings over the past several months. Many believe he will be the second overall pick in the NFL Draft. More importantly, his case as the No. 2 pick in dynasty superflex rookie drafts has grown with the uncertainty among the wide receiver class. Daniels had a breakout final college season, totaling 3,812 passing yards and 40 touchdowns. His rushing ability will make him a fantasy superstar after totaling 1,134 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns in 2023.

Pick 1.03Marvin Harrison Jr. (WR – Ohio State)

While some NFL teams have Harrison as the No. 2 wide receiver in this draft class, the former Ohio State star has a strong argument to be the first non-quarterback picked in dynasty rookie drafts. Despite losing C.J. Stroud to the NFL, Harrison had his second consecutive season with over 1,200 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns in 2023. He is potentially a Hall of Fame talent and a near top-five NFL Draft pick lock.

Pick 1.04 – Malik Nabers (WR – LSU)

Unfortunately, Nabers has to share a draft class with Marvin Harrison Jr. The former LSU star would be the clear-cut first wide receiver selected in the NFL Draft and rookie drafts almost any other year. He was outstanding in 2023, totaling 14 touchdowns on 89 receptions while leading the country in receiving yards (1,569). Nabers was made for today’s NFL, with speed and an ability to make plays at all three levels, drawing compares to Ja’Marr Chase and DJ Moore.

Pick 1.05 – Rome Odunze (WR – Washington)

The former Washington star is one of my favorite prospects in this year’s draft class. Odunze would be the slam dunk first wide receiver picked in the NFL Draft and dynasty rookie drafts almost any other year. Thankfully, he is part of an outstanding wide receiver rookie class, allowing fantasy players to snag him in the mid-first round of dynasty rookie drafts. Odunze had over 1,600 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns last season, making him arguably the top wide receiver in the country.

Pick 1.06 – Drake Maye (QB – UNC)

Many believe Maye’s NFL Draft stock is starting to slip. Some mock drafts have him getting picked after J.J. McCarthy, while others have him going ahead of Jayden Daniels. His landing spot will play a massive role in whether or not I want to take Maye in my dynasty rookie drafts. Fantasy players should love to see him land with the Minnesota Vikings. Maye could have a C.J. Stroud-like rookie year throwing an elite receiving core in Minnesota.

Pick 1.07Brock Bowers (TE – Georgia)

Some in the fantasy football community will refuse to draft Bowers after getting burned by Kyle Pitts a few years ago. However, that would be a mistake. Bowers is an elite prospect who dominated defenses as a freshman in 2021, totaling over 880 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns. While the star tight end could slide during the NFL Draft, fantasy players would be foolish not to make him a top-seven pick in dynasty rookie drafts.

Pick 1.08 – J.J. McCarthy (QB – Michigan)

McCarthy has been the biggest riser on NFL Draft boards over the past few months. After initially being a potential late first-round NFL Draft pick, the former Michigan star is a near top-five lock. While a few in the fantasy football community are skeptical about McCarthy, his NFL Draft capital will lock him into a mid-first-round pick in dynasty rookie drafts regardless of his landing spot.

Pick 1.09 – Brian Thomas Jr. (WR – LSU)

While Malik Nabers is the more talked about LSU wide receiver, Thomas will join him as a first-round NFL Draft pick. He is all but locked into being the fourth wide receiver off the board after an impressive performance at the NFL Combine. Thomas had a productive 2023 season despite being the team’s No. 2 wide receiver, totaling 68 receptions for 1,177 receiving yards while leading the country with 17 touchdowns.

Pick 1.10 – Xavier Worthy (WR – Texas)

The star of the 2024 NFL Combine was Worthy. He broke John Ross’ 40-yard dash record, posting a 4.21 after running a 4.25 on his first attempt. While some will argue he can’t play in the NFL after weighing 165 pounds in Indianapolis, the former Longhorn star can add some weight and remain explosive. Unlike most speedy wide receivers, Worthy is also an impressive route runner.

Pick 1.11 – Adonai Mitchell (WR – Texas)

Mitchell likely gets picked ahead of his former college teammate during the NFL Draft because of his size and speed combination. Yet, his landing spot could cause his dynasty rookie draft ADP to skyrocket or collapse. Mitchell ran a 4.34 40-yard dash at 205 pounds at the NFL Combine. More importantly, the former Longhorn is an athletic freak, capable of taking the top off a defense while boxing out defenders in the red zone.

Pick 1.12 – Jonathon Brooks (RB – Texas)

We close out the first round of this dynasty rookie mock draft with a third consecutive former Longhorn. Unfortunately, Brooks is coming off a torn ACL he suffered in November. Yet, he should be the first running back selected in rookie drafts, especially if he lands with the Dallas Cowboys. Brooks doesn’t have the same talent as Bijan Robinson. However, he can impact the game on the ground and in the air, similar to last year’s 1.01 rookie draft pick.
