Dynasty Rookie Draft Lottery Tickets

Ja’Tavion Sanders (TE – CAR)

No dynasty lottery ticket article would be complete without a dart throw tight end. With Brock Bowers as the sole first-round pick and Ben Sinnott in the late second/early third, your fourth-round lottery pick comes down to Ja’Tavion Sanders, Theo Johnson and Erick All. Johnson has the physical attributes but lacks extensive usage as a pass-catcher. All has a strong receiving profile but is in an offense with ample weapons and a history of inconsistent usage of tight ends. Sanders has the athleticism, skillset as a receiver and an opportunistic landing spot with a new coaching staff and lack of established receiving weapons. Target Sanders as a high-upside, instant starter for Carolina.

Tyrone Tracy Jr. (RB – NYG)

Tyrone Tracy Jr. is a converted receiver who lacks depth of experience at running back but could become a valuable fantasy asset with his dual-threat ability. Before his final season, Tracy had a combined 33 carries over four years. In his final year; however, he was Purdue’s most efficient back with 113 carries for 716 yards and eight touchdowns. Tracy will need to continue to develop and must contend with Devin Singletary — a back with a knack for dominating committee backfields. The Giants’ backfield lacks depth and Tracy could immediately contend for touches in 2024.

Brenden Rice (WR – LAC)

2023’s breakout rookie was Puka Nacua. While his talent is the primary reason for his success, don’t underestimate the value of landing with a team where you will get immediate snaps. For Nacua, the Rams had no established WR2 and Cooper Kupp missed the beginning of the season with an injury. Nacua stepped in as the WR1 and never looked back. Brenden Rice doesn’t step into the exact same opportunity but there is room for his emergence. Josh Palmer is in the last year of his contract. Quentin Johnston struggled to make an impact in 2023 and is on the verge of being labeled a bust. Ladd McConkey has a strong path to the Chargers’ WR1 role but don’t underestimate the opportunity for Rice.

Kimani Vidal (RB – LAC)

I’m not entirely sure Kimani Vidal qualifies as a lottery ticket at this point because his average draft position (ADP) is on the rise as I write this article. Vidal’s lottery ticket status is simple — he’s in a run-heavy offense with a new coaching staff and a revamped running back room that consists of a 29-year-old early-down and goal-line back in Gus Edwards and JK Dobbins, who has suffered multiple significant injuries that often send running backs to the end of their career. Vidal’s path to lead back is clear and he can earn a meaningful workload through his three-down back capabilities.

Spencer Rattler (QB – NO)

I’ll be blunt — I’m not a fan of Spencer Rattler. I believe he has a limited ceiling, he peaked in college and his trajectory in the NFL is that of a career backup. That said, his landing spot is advantageous and I can see a path for him to fall into an opportunity similar to Aidan O’Connell in 2023. O’Connell was third on the depth chart behind a questionable veteran quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo and a fill-in option in Brian Hoyer. O’Connell was given the job for the remainder of the season after their failures. In New Orleans, Derek Carr could be benched at any time and Jake Haener has yet to play a down in the regular season. Rattler could see action this season if Carr struggles.

Isaac Guerendo (RB – SF)

Drafting a San Francisco running back is always a dart through. Draft capital has been routinely irrelevant for the 49ers. Trey Sermon and Tyrion Davis-Price failed while late-round pick Elijah Mitchell and undrafted free agent Jordan Mason secured roles. Isaac Guerendo doesn’t fit the physical build for Kyle Shanahan’s typical backs. But, Guerendo’s athleticism and pure speed are a fantastic fit for San Francisco. Guerendo had a near-perfect relative athletic score (RAS) and could thrive within Shanahan’s system. He has an uphill battle for snaps and will have to contend with Mitchell for a consistent backup role. But if Guerendo can earn favor with Shanahan, his time will come.
