Dynasty Draft Values: Top Picks For Every NFL Team (Fantasy Football)

With the NFL Draft over it can be tempting to turn your attention away from your dynasty team as the NFL ‘quiet period’ approaches. The best dynasty managers are the ones who stay engaged all year round, though, and are always looking for trades and values. Below you will find the best dynasty draft values on each NFL team.

2024 Dynasty Fantasy Football Guide

Best Dynasty Draft Values (Team-by-Team)

Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray (QB)

It’s been a bumpy couple of years for Kyler Murray with the Kliff Kingsbury era ending miserably and Murray tearing his ACL in December of 2022. This time a year ago doubts still swirled about whether Murray would ever play for the Cardinals again. If the Cardinals had been a bit worse, perhaps that conversation would have lingered further into 2024. Murray played well enough to silence doubts for now, and importantly for fantasy, he got back to rushing with 30.5 yards per game, the sixth-most among quarterbacks. With a second offseason in this offense and further removed from the ACL injury, Murray is a clear bounce-back candidate. As the QB10 in dynasty rankings, he is one of the easier-to-acquire players with massive ceiling outcomes, particularly with Marvin Harrison Jr. and Trey McBride surrounding him.

Atlanta Falcons: Tyler Allgeier (RB)

The Falcons are set for dramatic changes this year and the expectation is that Bijan Robinson will have a larger opportunity share than the 52.1% he had in 2023, ranking 27th among all running backs. Robinson averaged 15.9 touches while Tyler Allgeier averaged 12.2, as he was a nuisance to both Robinson and fantasy managers. Allgeier warranted involvement, though, averaging 1.9 yards per route run compared to Robinson’s 1.0, and managing an almost identical 3.0 rushing yards after contact compared to Robinson’s 3.1. Robinson is the better back, but Allgeier likely still has standalone value and would be a top-24 back every week if Robinson got injured. He can be acquired for a mid-third-round pick.

Baltimore Ravens: Rashod Bateman (WR)

The NFL hasn’t been as kind to Rashod Bateman as many expected, with only 93 catches in three years, but the signs are there that he could finally be more fantasy-viable in 2024. The Ravens moved on from Odell Beckham Jr., who was second on the team in targets last year (64), then didn’t spend any meaningful resources on adding another receiver. John Harbaugh and Eric DeCosta have both talked up how much they expect Bateman to take a leap. Bateman might never turn into the true elite player we hoped, but you can currently acquire the WR2 on an offense we expect to be very good for a third-round pick. Not to mention, this Ravens offense likely passes more this year due to the second-most difficult strength of schedule and a defense prone to regression after losing several key players.

Buffalo Bills: Curtis Samuel (WR)

The Bills looked at their wide receiver group and decided things had to change, no matter how much it cost them to move on from Stefon Diggs. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Samuel averaged 9.08 miles per hour (MPH) within the first second of his routes in 2023, the third-quickest in the NFL. Bills wide receivers averaged a 7.95 MPH burst last season, 29th in the NFL. The acquisition of Samuel gives them a player able to open up space quickly, play on both the boundary and the slot, as well as be used in the running game. Simply put, Samuel should be a big part of the Bills’ plans for 2024. He’s available for an early third-round pick.

Carolina Panthers: Bryce Young (QB)

The Panthers might not be a good team yet, but good teams surround young quarterbacks with talent and give them a chance to succeed, and that’s what the Panthers have done by adding Diontae Johnson, Jonathon Brooks and Xavier Legette. Most importantly, though, the Panthers upgraded a leaky offensive line with several key free agent signings. A year ago, Young was the consensus 1.01 in the NFL Draft. It’s not crazy to imagine he turns things around and can be a long-term starter. Those types of players aren’t normally as easy to acquire as Young currently is.

Chicago Bears: Rome Odunze (WR)

If the Bears hadn’t traded for Keenan Allen and settled for just adding Rome Odunze in the NFL Draft then it’s more than likely that Odunze would have been taken ahead of Malik Nabers in plenty of rookie drafts, but now people seem subdued on his short-term output. Odunze will compete with Allen, DJ Moore, Cole Kmet, D’Andre Swift and Gerald Everett for touches in his rookie season. If you’re rebuilding he’s the perfect asset to acquire with an eye to 2025 when Allen may no longer be with the team, and possibly neither will Moore.

Cincinnati Bengals: Chase Brown (RB)

The Bengals have a two-way committee for 2024 with Zack Moss and Chase Brown, but Moss’ two-year contract comes with zero guaranteed money beyond this year. It’s easy to see a world where Brown is the RB1 in 2025, if not in 2024 if Moss regresses to the performances that have been more common throughout his career. Brown led all rookie running backs in yards per target (11.2) and managed 4.1 yards per carry on 33 attempts.

Cleveland Browns: Amari Cooper (WR)

A large percentage of dynasty managers seem reluctant to roster Amari Cooper, even though year in and year out he delivers. Cooper has had 1,100+ yards in four of the last five seasons, despite up-and-down quarterback play at times, but Cooper continues to deliver and has had three games over 30 PPR points in the last three seasons. For a mid-second-round pick, Cooper could help your team win it all in 2024.

Dallas Cowboys: Jake Ferguson (TE)

It was an impressive 2023 campaign for Jake Ferguson with him leading all tight ends in red zone targets (24), three more than any other player, and being second on the Cowboys in target share at 17%. Ferguson might not have the highest ceiling at the position, but he’s an every-week starter who won’t let you down for a pick in the mid-to-late second round.

Denver Broncos: Marvin Mims Jr. (WR)

Perhaps it will never happen for Marvin Mims, but a year ago we were excited about the exciting wide receiver who Sean Payton selected with his first draft pick as Broncos head coach. Mims was reduced to a 38% snap share in his first season, but with Jerry Jeudy gone, there is a need for someone to step up. Mims will likely have an opportunity. A year ago Mims was a top-50 dynasty receiver and now you can acquire him for the cost of one barely in the top 70.

Detroit Lions: David Montgomery (RB)

The Lions continue to say they plan on running a committee between David Montgomery and Jahmyr Gibbs in 2024. It makes sense given their abilities mesh well together. Montgomery led the backfield in touches last year with 17.3 per game to Gibbs’ 15.8. He also led the pair with 4.0 evaded tackles per game compared to Gibbs’ 3.5. Gibbs made hay with explosive runs, with a massive 8.88% big run rate, which dwarfed Montgomery’s 3.83%. Since the Lions preferred Montgomery at the goal line it kept Montgomery very fantasy-relevant. For all-in teams, trading a mid-second for Montgomery could provide a solid RB2 every week.

Green Bay Packers: Tucker Kraft (TE)

During Weeks 1-11, Luke Musgrave dominated the Packers’ tight end work with a 70.3% snap-share, which he turned into a 14% target share and Tucker Kraft languished with 31.1% of snaps and a total of 9.3 PPR points combined. When Musgrave suffered a lacerated kidney and went on injured reserve it opened the door up for Kraft to see more opportunities, which he seized, playing 93% of the snaps and averaging 10.5 PPR points per game for the rest of the season, making him the TE11 in that time. Kraft is available for a mid-late third-round pick and might be the lead tight end on an explosive Green Bay offense by the end of the year.

Houston Texans: Joe Mixon (RB)

The Texans gave Devin Singletary 19.4 touches per game from Week 10 onwards last year after deciding Dameon Pierce wasn’t their cup of tea but then sought to upgrade on Singletary by trading for Joe Mixon and handing him a new contract. Mixon has scored 37 touchdowns in the last three years, making up for some of his inefficiency on the ground. As the sole option in Houston, that kind of return can continue in an ascending offense. This rookie class was by no means a good one for finding a running back, instead, you could trade for Mixon, who should see upwards of 250 touches for the Texans.

Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Richardson (QB)

Anthony Richardson only played four games. In those games, however, he averaged 18.2 points, which included two games where he left early. In two full games, Richardson scored 20.9 and 29.6 points. Richardson finished as a top-12 QB in PPG. In four incomplete games, he scored 72 points. It might cost you a high first-round pick to trade for Richardson right now, but it could be a lot more expensive this time next year.

Jacksonville Jaguars: Christian Kirk (WR)

Over the last two years Christian Kirk has spent in Jacksonville he’s totaled 218 targets and had eight top-15 weekly finishes. He comes into 2024 on the back of a career-high 2.07 yards per route run, putting him 24th among all receivers. With Calvin Ridley and Zay Jones now gone there are a lot of hopes for Gabe Davis and rookie Brian Thomas Jr. It shouldn’t surprise anyone if Kirk leads the team in targets and receptions and is the most consistent for fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs: Isiah Pacheco (RB)

We want running backs who get a lot of touches and are preferably on good teams, Isiah Pacheco ticks all those boxes. Pacheco had the 11th-most touches among backs last year with 17.8, finishing as the RB11 in PPR points per game. He finished with the 13th-most catches among running backs. Normally, for this type of performance, you have to pay at least a first, but Pacheco can be had for a pick in the range of 2.03. He is worth every bit of it.

Los Angeles Chargers: Justin Herbert (QB)

It’s not often we see such a dip in a quarterback’s value after being such a sought-after asset for several years, but that is where Herbert is, falling from the QB2 in September 2022 to QB9. This Chargers offense might not be as pass-heavy as we’d want, but Justin Herbert can be efficient and take the chain-moving passes to players like Ladd McConkey and Josh Palmer. Greg Roman’s offense isn’t gung-ho, but it is efficient — that’s fine at these prices. Herbert can be your QB1/QB2 for the next five years with no concerns and won’t cost more than an early first, at the very most.

Los Angeles Rams: Cooper Kupp (WR)

Puka Nacua stole all the headlines but Cooper Kupp was more than adequate when healthy in 2024, with his 25.6% target share very close to Nacua’s 28.8% and his route participation a hair above Nacua at 92.8% versus 91.2%. Nacua will cost you a king’s ransom, but Kupp is available for a mid-early second-round pick. He should have at least a couple of more good seasons left in him.

Las Vegas Raiders: Zamir White (RB)

Over the final three weeks of last season, Zamir White averaged 95.0 rushing yards per game, the fourth-most among RBs, but his 1.7% TD rate was the second-lowest among running backs to score a touchdown.

White saw 19.7 rush attempts per game in those three weeks, but he only reached 15 PPR points in two games, finishing as the RB12, RB16 and RB16. If White can add some touchdowns to his game he has the potential to be an every-week fantasy starter in what we expect to be a run-heavy offense.

Miami Dolphins: Raheem Mostert (RB)

Eighteen touchdowns in 2023 should be reason enough for you to want to trade for Raheem Mostert, coupled with the fact that De’Von Achane only managed to play above 30% of the snaps in eight games last year, living up to the knock on him coming out of college that his 5-foot-9, 188-pound frame would be too small to hold up in the NFL. Mostert signed a new contract recently and is an exceptionally strong buy for contenders willing to separate with a third-round pick.

Minnesota Vikings: Ty Chandler (RB)

The Vikings brought in Aaron Jones as their lead back but the 29-year-old struggled to stay healthy in 2023, playing only 11 games and the fall-off can be pretty swift when running backs turn 28. Ty Chandler had five games with 13+ touches from Week 10 onwards and was a top-36 running back in four of the five, making him a solid Flex option in most leagues if anything happened to Jones. For the cost of a late-third, you could end up in a position to flip him for much more during the season.

New England Patriots: Rhamondre Stevenson (RB)

Rhamondre Stevenson was slow to get going in 2023, dropping from 61 rushing yards per game in 2022 to 51 in the Patriots’ anemic offense. He also saw his receptions per game drop from 4.1 to 3.1. However, It seemed he was getting going when he got injured after finishing as the RB2, RB20 and RB7, before missing the rest of the season. With Drake Maye at quarterback, there’s hope this offense could be a little more fantasy-friendly in 2024.

New Orleans Saints: Rashid Shaheed (WR)

Rashid Shaheed finished as a top-12 wide receiver on three occasions in 2023 and added another finish inside the top-18 for good measure. Those three top-12 weekly finishes were more than DK Metcalf, Drake London, Jaylen Waddle and Chris Godwin managed, to name but a few. The Saints have yet to do much to bring in competition and Shaheed should be the clear WR2 this year.

New York Giants: Devin Singletary (RB)

The Giants reunited Brian Daboll with Devin Singletary after the two spent time together in Buffalo, giving Singletary a three-year contract after he saw 19 touches per game with the Texans from Week 10 onwards. Daniel Jones is still recovering from his ACL injury and the pass-catchers outside of Malik Nabers are nothing to write home about. If you’re looking for consistent volume, giving up an early third for Singletary makes sense.

New York Jets: Tyler Conklin (TE)

The Jets passed on the often connected Brock Bowers to solidify their offensive line in perhaps the most sensible decision the organization has made in many years, leaving them with Tyler Conklin holding down the TE1 duties. In 2023, Conklin played on 69.7% of the snaps, more than double any other tight end on the roster. His 15.4% target share could have been useful with better quarterback play. With Aaron Rodgers potentially healthy, Conklin can be a useful depth piece in 2024.

Philadelphia Eagles: DeVonta Smith (WR)

DeVonta Smith is the best WR2 in the NFL and is cheaper to acquire than Xavier Worthy or Rome Odunze. Unless you’re rebuilding, I would prefer to have the proven player with three consecutive seasons of 100+ targets and 900+ yards.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Jaylen Warren (RB)

Jaylen Warren has recorded 89 catches in the last two seasons combined, including 74 targets in 2023. The only running backs with more were Breece Hall, Alvin Kamara, Christian McCaffrey, Bijan Robinson and Jahmyr Gibbs. Warren plays with the two quarterbacks who led the league in check-down rate when kept clean in 2023, with Russell Wilson leading the league (19.3%) and Justin Fields not far behind (13.0%). Najee Harris might still be in Pittsburgh but after Warren had the second-highest explosive play rate among RBs in 2023 it’s impossible to put him back in the box.

Seattle Seahawks: Noah Fant (TE)

In previous years, Noah Fant’s route to relevancy was blocked by the Seahawks’ committee approach to the tight end position. Will Dissly is now with the Chargers and Colby Parkinson is on the Rams, leaving this tight end room firmly in Fant’s control for the first time. Fant has caught over 75% of his targets in each of the last three seasons. He needs more volume and snaps to be relevant.

San Francisco 49ers: Deebo Samuel (WR)

You could acquire Deebo Samuel for the 1.12/2.01 in Superflex leagues, depending on how tied to them your trade partner is, but try and get Brandon Aiyuk and you’re paying much closer to the 1.06, despite Samuel being far better for fantasy purposes. In 2023, Aiyuk managed only four top-20 weekly finishes, was held below 80 receiving yards on eight occasions, didn’t score touchdowns in 60% of his games and finished as the WR30 or worse on six occasions. Meanwhile, Samuel had eight top-20 finishes, matched Aiyuk with eight games below 80 yards and only failed to score touchdowns in 43% of his games. Samuel is more productive, more diverse and wins in ways integral to the Niners’ scheme. Even if Aiyuk is traded, what’s to say he ends up in anywhere near as fruitful of an offense?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Baker Mayfield (QB)

Starting-caliber quarterbacks are hard to acquire in Superflex leagues. You typically have to pay a first-round pick for them, yet Baker Mayfield’s current value sits at an early second-round pick despite him signing a new contract. Mayfield is a perfect QB2. With weapons like Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, there’s plenty of reason to believe he can stay consistent and match or better his QB17 finish in points per game from 2023.

Tennessee Titans: Will Levis (QB)

The Titans have surrounded Will Levis with savvy veterans in DeAndre Hopkins, Calvin Ridley, Tyler Boyd and Tony Pollard in order to gain a fair assessment of him in his second season. Levis might turn out to be below NFL standards and the warning signs from college were there, but Levis can be fun for fantasy football. In 2023, Levis led all quarterbacks with a 10.4 average depth of target (aDOT) and ranked ninth in big-time throw rate (6.19%). Levis is a high-risk, high-reward player that teams ready to embrace some risk should be willing to ride with.

Washington Commanders: Brian Robinson Jr. (RB)

Austin Ekeler is coming off an awful year by his standards, where Pro Football Focus (PFF) graded him at a career-low 60.2, a massive drop from his career average of 79.6. Ekeler also saw his missed tackles forced per game drop from 4.2 in 2022 to 2.9 in 2023, along with setting a career-low in yards after contact per attempt, a number that has fallen for Ekeler in six straight seasons. Meanwhile, Brian Robinson Jr. has been steadily consistent for the Commanders, rushing for 4.1 yards per carry in 2023 and also managing to add an extra 24.5 receiving yards per game. This is simply a hedge against the older Ekeler failing to stay healthy or effective at this point in his career.
