Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Joe Burrow, Drake London, Christian Kirk (2024)

Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Joe Burrow, Drake London, Christian Kirk (2024)

While the 2024 NFL season is still months away, it’s never too early to prepare for fantasy football drafts. Players will see their fantasy value skyrocket or tank depending on what happens during the NFL Draft. However, practice makes perfect, so let’s do an early fantasy football mock draft.

I was slotted 10th in this 12-team, superflex mock with PPR scoring settings. The lineup for this mock draft is one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, two flex, one superflex, and six bench spots.

My strategy for this mock draft was to take back-to-back quarterbacks with my first two selections to avoid having a quarterback run happen before I could pick again. After that, I went with a best-player-available approach with a slight lean towards drafting running backs early to take advantage of the depth at wide receiver. Without further ado, let’s see how things shake out. Here are my full 2024 fantasy football mock draft results. Below we dive into a few notable picks.

PPR Superflex Mock Draft

Pick 1.10: Joe Burrow (QB – CIN)

Burrow didn’t have an ideal 2023 season. He suffered a calf strain early in training camp and a season-ending injury in Week 11, as he tore a ligament in his throwing wrist. However, the superstar should be ready for offseason prep without limitations. The former No. 1 overall pick averaged 283.9 passing yards, 2.2 touchdowns, and 20.8 fantasy points per game during the 2021 and 2022 seasons. Burrow could have a top-five finish even if the Bengals trade away Tee Higgins.

Pick 4.03 – Drake London (WR – ATL)

The former USC star’s NFL career has been held back by poor quarterback play so far. London still averaged 10.5 or more fantasy points in both NFL seasons despite catching passes from Marcus Mariota, Desmond Ridder, and Taylor Heinicke. The star receiver is a popular breakout candidate after the Falcons signed Kirk Cousins in free agency. The veteran quarterback has produced multiple No. 1 wide receivers in his career, including two top-12 guys twice during his time with the Minnesota Vikings.

Pick 7.10 – Christian Kirk (WR – JAC)

The biggest winner from Calvin Ridley signing with the Tennessee Titans in free agency was Kirk. He had three receiving touchdowns in 2023 after totaling a career-high eight in his first season with Jacksonville. While the Jaguars added Gabe Davis this offseason, Kirk will remain Trevor Lawrence‘s go-to guy. The last time he was the team’s No. 1 target, the veteran finished as the WR12 in fantasy, averaging 14.2 points per game.
