Fantasy Football Rookie Targets: Malachi Corley, Jayden Daniels, Trey Benson, Jonathan Brooks

While the 2024 NFL Draft is quickly approaching, now is a great time to capitalize in best ball fantasy football drafts. You can gain an edge versus other best ball drafters if you have advanced knowledge of the upcoming draft class. Identifying value at this point in the year can be the difference between cashing or not in fantasy football best ball leagues. Let’s take a look at a few fantasy football rookies to target in upcoming best ball drafts.

Fantasy Football Best Ball Draft Advice

Players to Target for Best Ball

Jayden Daniels

Unless something goes very awry, Daniels will be a Commander or a Patriot. Washington is the ideal landing spot with a solid receiving corps and an offensive coordinator known to push fantasy-friendly offenses.

While the Patriots’ offense remains a giant question mark with no WR1, Daniels can still thrive from a fantasy perspective with his rushing upside and would be the immediate starter. His skillset can overcome a lack of weapons, and potential spikes in production would be excellent for best ball teams.

Trey Benson and Jonathan Brooks

I’m pairing these rookies together for the same reason: top-of-the-class talent with the potential to land in RB1 situations for best ball. There are several spots open but the Dallas Cowboys’ RB1 position is the most coveted landing spot for Benson and Brooks.

While the Cowboys retained 2023 backup Rico Dowdle, the incoming rookie would have a direct path to RB1. The Cowboys have had top-30 visits with both Benson and Brooks, so at their current ADPs, I’m very willing to draft both backs in hopes one ends up as the lead back in one of the league’s most explosive offenses.

Malachi Corley

Digging much deeper into best ball ADP, Corley is a very intriguing prospect and is making the rounds in top-30 visits with Baltimore, Carolina, Dallas and several other teams.

While Corley does have some developmental needs to make a huge impact at the next level, his versatility and skills after the catch mean he could see the field early in creative, high-impact plays. Gadget players might feel a bit risky, but he’s the perfect late-round target that could truly pay off.
