Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: Malik Nabers, Jayden Daniels, Trey Benson (2024 Fantasy Football)

Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: Malik Nabers, Jayden Daniels, Trey Benson (2024 Fantasy Football)

Landing spots change everything.

We all have preconceived notions about prospects before the NFL Draft. Some of those notions are completely upended when we discover that teams were higher or lower on those prospects than we were. We’ll also have to adjust if a player lands in an especially desirable or undesirable situation.

Soon after Roger Goodell steps to the podium amidst a chorus of boos, we’ll have to start tweaking our dynasty rookie rankings. But for now, our appraisals of these prospects are pretty much set.

Let’s run through a four-round superflex dynasty rookie mock draft, leaning on predraft priors. Here are all four rounds of my picks. Below we’ll dive into a few notable dynasty rookies. And be sure to practice for your league and run your own mocks with our free draft simulator.

2024 Dynasty Fantasy Football Guide

Superflex Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft

1.03 — WR Malik Nabers, LSU

Some fantasy analysts prefer Nabers to Harrison — and some NFL teams reportedly do, too. The LSU star is probably a better route-runner than Harrison, and no WR prospect in this class is better after the catch than Nabers. Make room, Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase — the next great LSU receiver is about to enter the league.

1.04 — QB Jayden Daniels, LSU

This is a strong QB class, and Daniels is the most dangerous runner of the group. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner could be a modern-day Randall Cunningham as a dual run-pass threat. Daniels ran for 1,134 yards and 10 touchdowns in his final college season. He also completed 72.2% of his passes, averaged 11.7 yards per pass attempt, and threw 40 TD passes and only four interceptions. With the potential rushing value he adds, Daniels is a worthy QB2 in this class.

2.03 — RB Trey Benson, Florida State

Benson isn’t the prospect that Breece Hall was coming out of Iowa State a couple of years ago, but with his size (6-0, 216 pounds), speed (4.39) and pass-catching ability, Benson provides fantasy managers with a Breece Hall starter kit.

2.04 — QB Bo Nix, Oregon

Nix is a five-year college starter who originally enrolled at Auburn, where his dad had played quarterback, and eventually wound up at Oregon. He was much better on the West Coast, though he played in an extremely QB-friendly, screen-heavy offense. Nix isn’t super-toolsy, but he made 61 starts in college, and it’s possible all that experience helps him make a smooth transition to the NFL a la Brock Purdy, who started 46 games in college and has become an NFL starter despite being the last pick of the 2022 draft.
