Fantasy Football Mock Draft: 12-Team, PPR, Superflex (2024)

While everyone is knee-deep in dynasty rookie drafts, it’s never too early to prepare for redraft leagues. Everyone knows that practice makes perfect, and there is no better way to practice than with the FantasyPros Fantasy Football Mock Draft Simulator.

I am picking 12th in this 12-team, superflex, and PPR-scoring redraft fantasy football mock draft. The lineup for this mock draft is one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, one tight end, two flex, one superflex, and five bench spots.

My goal for this fantasy football mock draft was to use my first two picks on a quarterback, then until the eighth round to select my first running back. Let’s see how it turned out.

Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Picks & Predictions

We go round-by-round to provide each and every pick I made in my latest fantasy football mock draft.

Round 1, Pick 12 – Kyler Murray (QB – ARI)

Some have forgotten how much of a fantasy star Murray has been in his career. He wasn’t 100% last year after suffering a torn ACL during the 2022 season. However, the superstar quarterback averaged 20.4 fantasy points per game over the first four years of his career. Furthermore, Murray was a top-seven quarterback on a points-per-game basis in three of those seasons. Arizona improved their offensive line in free agency and added Marvin Harrison Jr. during the NFL Draft. Don’t be surprised if Murray has a big comeback year in 2024.

Round 2, Pick 1 – Jordan Love (QB – GB)

Love had many doubters heading into his first season as the starter. He began the year on fire, averaging three passing touchdowns and 21.7 fantasy points per game over the first two weeks. He hit a slump after that, but the former Utah State star proved he is a franchise-caliber quarterback as the year went on. Love was the QB2 over the final seven contests of the fantasy season, averaging 2.3 passing touchdowns and 21.6 fantasy points per game. The second-year starter has an exciting young core of receiving options, giving him significant fantasy upside.

Round 3, Pick 12 – Chris Olave (WR – NO)

While fantasy rankings won’t have Olave in the same tier as Garrett Wilson or Drake London, the former Ohio State star was the only one of the three to finish in the top 25 last season. He was the WR16 and averaged 14.5 fantasy points per game, despite ranking 28th among wide receivers in receiving touchdowns with five. Derek Carr and Olave struggled to connect in their first year together. However, fantasy players should have high hopes for the star receiver now that the Saints have hired Klint Kubiak as their offensive coordinator.

Round 4, Pick 1 – Nico Collins (WR – HOU)

Many called Collins a breakout candidate last offseason. The former Michigan star had his first top 12 finish in 2023 despite missing time with injuries. He led the Texans in receptions (80), targets (109), receiving yards (1,297), and touchdowns (eight) after becoming C.J. Stroud‘s go-to target. While Tank Dell is a talented receiver, Collins is still the No. 1 guy in Houston. Even with the offseason addition of Stefon Diggs, the veteran had back-to-back years with late-season struggles and Collins won’t have a threat to his role as the top receiver.

Round 5, Pick 12 – Malik Nabers (WR – NYG)

Fantasy players would draft Nabers in the third round of redraft leagues if he had been picked by the Los Angeles Chargers during the NFL Draft. However, the former LSU star will still be one of my favorite draft targets despite getting selected by the Giants. According to PFF, Nabers ranked first in the draft class among wide receivers with at least 20 targets last season (3.64). The rookie will see a massive target share, especially if Darren Waller decides to retire.

Round 6, Pick 1 – Christian Kirk (WR – JAC)

Kirk was the biggest beneficiary of Calvin Ridley signing with the Tennessee Titans in free agency. Kirk had only three receiving touchdowns in 2023 after totaling a career-high eight in his first season with Jacksonville. While the Jaguars added Gabe Davis in free agency and used their first-round pick on Brian Thomas Jr., Kirk will remain Trevor Lawrence‘s go-to guy. The last time he was the team’s No. 1 target, the veteran ended the season as the WR12, averaging 14.2 fantasy points per game.

Round 7, Pick 12 – Diontae Johnson (WR – CAR)

Unfortunately, Johnson has been held back by awful quarterback play since Ben Roethlisberger’s retirement. While many believe the veteran receiver will continue to struggle now that he’s in Carolina with Bryce Young, that couldn’t be further from the truth. As the former No. 1 pick, Young struggled last year because he didn’t have receivers who could consistently separate. That won’t be the case with Johnson. While the Panthers added multiple pass catchers during the NFL Draft, none of them can challenge Johnson for the No. 1 wide receiver role.

Round 8, Pick 1 – Jonathon Brooks (RB – CAR)

Per reports, Brooks should be 100% healthy by the start of training camp. Therefore, expect his ADP to rise over the next few months. While Chuba Hubbard had solid moments last season, he is an average runner. Meanwhile, Miles Sanders was a massive flop in his first year with the team and might not be on the roster come Week 1. Expect Brooks to become Dave Canales’ new version of Rachaad White and have a massive role in Carolina’s offense both on the ground and in the air.

Round 9, Pick 12 – Zamir White (RB – LV)

White was the RB9 last season, averaging 15.2 fantasy points per game during the four weeks in which he was the starter, and he saw at least 20 touches in every contest. While some thought the Raiders would add a running back early during the NFL Draft, the team wanted until the sixth round to select Dylan Laube. Furthermore, Las Vegas spent multiple Day 2 picks improving their offensive line. Head coach Antonio Pierce’s goal is to run the ball and play defense, making White one of my must-have running backs in 2024.

Round 10, Pick 1 – Xavier Worthy (WR – KC)

Landing with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs helped Worthy’s post-NFL Draft fantasy value. The former Longhorn is a talented receiver, not just a fast one. While everyone talks about his record-breaking 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, Worthy is also an impressive route runner who could quickly become Mahomes’ go-to wide receiver, especially with Rice’s recent off-the-field issues. Even if the rookie turns into Kansas City’s next Skyy Moore or Kadarius Toney, he has too much upside to pass on drafting in the double-digit rounds.

Round 11, Pick 12 – Gus Edwards (RB – LAC) 

There were several veteran winners from the NFL Draft, but Edwards was arguably one of the biggest winners after the Chargers waited until the sixth round to draft a running back in Kimani Vidal. While some think the rookie can eventually take over as the starter, Edwards is coming off the best year of his career. The veteran had 13 rushing touchdowns in 2023, the fifth-most in the NFL. While he is more valuable in non-PPR scoring, Edwards is a steal at this point in the mock draft.

Round 12, Pick 1 – Jake Ferguson (TE – DAL)

Although there are several talented tight ends that fantasy players can draft in the earlier rounds, Ferguson is my favorite double-digit target this year. He ended the 2023 season as the TE9, averaging 10.4 fantasy points per game. More importantly, Ferguson was Dak Prescott‘s clear-cut No. 2 target behind CeeDee Lamb, ranking second on the team in receptions (71), targets (102), and receiving yards (761). Ferguson should also be in line for a larger role in 2024 after the Cowboys lost Michael Gallup and Tony Pollard in the offseason.

Round 13, Pick 12 – Bo Nix (QB – DEN)

Despite spending my first two draft picks on quarterbacks, I always select at least three in a superflex draft. That being said, hopefully Nix won’t get into my starting lineup other than bye weeks. The former Oregon star doesn’t have the same upside as most rookie quarterbacks this season. However, he is all but guaranteed to start Week 1. More importantly, Nix has a solid set of weapons, including fellow former Ducks star Troy Franklin.

Round 14, Pick 1 – Jaylen Wright (RB – MIA)

The Dolphins traded a 2025 third-round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles during the NFL Draft in order to select Wright, showing their significant interest in the rookie. However, many will push him down in their redraft rankings because he landed in a crowded backfield. Yet, that would be a mistake; Raheem Mostert turns 33 in August, while De’Von Achane struggled to stay healthy last season. Wright is built perfectly for Miami’s offense. Although it might not happen in Week 1, he will finish his rookie year as a fantasy relevant running back.
