Dynasty Draft Sleepers: Jermaine Burton, Pat Freiermuth, Jaylen Wright (2024)

While dynasty rookie drafts are still happening, there is never a bad time for a dynasty startup draft. While there are several strategies you can use during startup drafts, finding the best value in every round is critical regardless of which you deploy. So, let’s look at the best dynasty draft sleepers in a 12-team, 1QB, half-point PPR startup. Here are a few of our top dynasty draft sleepers to target.

Dynasty Draft Sleepers

We dive deep to identify the best dynasty draft sleepers based on ADP (average draft position).

Round 10 – Jaylen Wright (RB – MIA)

The Dolphins had an outstanding 1-2 punch at running back last season. Raheem Mostert (17 fantasy points per game) and De’Von Achane (16.1) were top-four running backs on a points-per-game basis in 2023. However, Mostert turned 32 in April, while Achane struggled to stay healthy. Therefore, no one should be surprised that Miami traded a 2025 third-round pick to draft Wright in the fourth round this year. Wright could replace Mostert as the lead back, with Achane mixing in on Mike McDaniel’s offense a year from now.

Round 11 – Pat Freiermuth (TE – PIT)

While he is coming off the worst season of his career, I believe in Freiermuth. Pittsburgh’s offense should be significantly better after upgrading their quarterback room. Arthur Smith taking over as the team’s offensive coordinator is excellent news for Freiermuth. Last year, the Atlanta Falcons tight ends averaged a 31.7% overall target share and a 29.3% red zone target share. With Diontae Johnson in Carolina, Freiermuth could see the volume needed to have a breakout season in the final year of his rookie contract.

Round 12 – Jermaine Burton (WR – CIN)

Ja’Marr Chase will likely spend most of his career as a Bengal with Joe Burrow under center. However, Tee Higgins is set to play under the franchise tag this season. Whether he gets traded before Week 1 or leaves the team next offseason, the veteran likely won’t play in Cincinnati in 2025. Burton slipped in the NFL Draft because of off-the-field concerns. Yet, he is a talented receiver. Burton ranked first in aDOT (20.2) among wide receivers in the draft class with at least 30 targets last season (per PFF).
