Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Superflex, PPR (2024)

Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Superflex, PPR (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.

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 2.03 – Jordan Love (QB – GB)

Some will hate that I went with back-to-back quarterbacks to start this mock draft. However, I couldn’t be happier with my first two picks. Love was outstanding in his first year as the starter, ending the season as the QB5, averaging 18.8 fantasy points per game. While he had a rough patch, Love was outstanding to end the year. Love was the QB2 over the final eight weeks of the regular season, averaging 21.2 fantasy points per game. He should only get better heading into his second year under center.

Pick 3.10 – Jonathan Taylor (RB – IND)

Having Taylor fall into my lap at the end of the third round felt like Christmas in April. The superstar running back has dealt with injuries the past two years. However, he has been outstanding on the field, averaging 16.9 fantasy points per game for his career, including 15.6 or more in all but one season. While Taylor will lose some goal-line work to Anthony Richardson, he is a steal at this point of the mock draft.

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 5.10 – Derrick Henry (RB – BAL)

Some will fade Henry because he turned 30 in January. However, he was the RB8 in 2023, averaging 14.5 fantasy points per game despite playing behind one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL. More importantly, the notion that the veteran won’t put up big numbers in Baltimore because of Lamar Jackson is false. Last year, the Ravens’ running back unit had 21 rushing touchdowns, which would have ranked seventh in the NFL.

Pick 6.03 – Trey McBride (TE – ARI)

Even if Marvin Harrison Jr. or Malik Nabers get drafted by the Cardinals, I would still take McBride with this pick. He was the TE4 in the nine games with Kyler Murray under center, averaging 14.9 fantasy points per game. Furthermore, McBride ranked second in target per route run rate (26%) among tight ends with at least 35 routes during the nine games he played with Murray (per Fantasy Points Data).

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.

Pick 8.03 – Diontae Johnson (WR – CAR)

Many believe Johnson’s fantasy value declined after getting traded to the Panthers this offseason. However, it’s a positive for the veteran receiver, as he got a significant upgrade at quarterback from Kenny Pickett to Bryce Young. Last year, the No. 1 NFL Draft pick struggled because his offensive line and receiving core were awful. Carolina improved the offensive line in free agency and traded for Johnson. The veteran is an excellent route runner and should command a heavy target share from the young quarterback.

Pick 9.10 – Calvin Ridley (WR – TEN)

While Ridley got a downgrade at quarterback from Trevor Lawrence to Will Levis, don’t expect the veteran receiver to fall off a cliff for fantasy players. Despite struggling to connect with Lawrence, Ridley was the WR18 in 2023, averaging 13.5 fantasy points per game. More importantly, his competition for targets went from Christian Kirk and Evan Engram to an aging DeAndre Hopkins and Treylon Burks. Expect Levis to have a sophomore-year jump under new head coach Brian Callahan, leading to Ridley having a productive fantasy season.

Pick 10.03 – Jonathon Brooks (RB – Texas)

Brooks had to wait his turn at Texas, sitting behind Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson. However, he was outstanding in his first year as the starter. The former Longhorn had 1,139 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns in 10 games before tearing an ACL against Oklahoma State. Brooks also flashed upside in the passing game, totaling 25 receptions for 286 yards and a touchdown last season. If he lands with the Dallas Cowboys during the NFL Draft, as many expect, Brooks’ ADP will skyrocket.

Pick 11.10 – Devin Singletary (RB – NYG)

I’ve never been a big fan of Singletary. However, the veteran running back was the RB9, averaging 14.3 fantasy points per game over the final nine regular season contests despite playing on a pass-happy offense. While he joined a sub-par New York team in free agency, the veteran running back has little competition for touches. Singletary’s upside is limited, but his expected workload makes him a value pick at this point of the mock draft.

Pick 12.03 – Kendre Miller (RB – NO)

Some called for Miller to have a second-half breakout as a rookie. While that never materialized, fantasy players should double down on the former TCU star in 2024. Last year, Miller had his best game of the season in Week 18 with Alvin Kamara on the sidelines because of an injury, averaging 5.6 yards per rushing attempt while scoring 14.9 fantasy points. If the veteran gets hurt or shows more signs of slowing down, Miller could have a sophomore-year breakout.

Pick 13.10 – Demario Douglas (WR – NE)

After missing out on Calvin Ridley in free agency, the Patriots added K.J. Osborn to their island of misfit toy wide receivers. Despite the collection of sub-par wide receivers, Douglas is someone I will draft plenty of late this year. He had some good moments in the second half of his rookie season, totaling 10.5 or more fantasy points in five of his final nine games. Douglas could turn into a solid bench option with upside in PPR leagues.

Pick 14.03 – Bryce Young (QB – CAR)

Despite spending my first two picks on a quarterback, I never leave a superflex draft with less than three quarterbacks. With most of the starting quarterbacks off the board, I took Young to stack with Diontae Johnson. While the former Alabama star’s rookie season was a disaster, he did have a few impressive performances, including a 312-yard and two-touchdown outing late in the year against the Green Bay Packers. Young should be significantly better in his sophomore year.

Pick 15.10 – Adonai Mitchell (WR – Texas)

Mitchell had a breakout year in his lone season at Texas. The former Georgia receiver had 38 receptions for 560 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in 21 games during his two years with the Bulldogs. Then, Mitchell had 55 receptions for 845 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns last season, ranking first in the Big 12 in receiving scores. More importantly, he is an athletic freak who could be Josh Allen‘s No. 1 wide receiver as a rookie.

Pick 16.03 – Marvin Mims Jr. (WR – DEN)

The 2023 season was one to forget for everyone in Denver’s passing attack except for Courtland Sutton. While he had a disappointing rookie year, Mims should be a popular sleeper candidate during training camp. The Broncos traded away Jerry Jeudy earlier this offseason. Furthermore, the team could trade away Sutton during the NFL Draft. After averaging only 14.8 routes and 2.1 targets per game as a rookie, Mims should have a more consistent role in 2024.
