Fantasy Football Questions for All 32 NFL Teams (2024)

The 2024 season is still a few months away. While much will change between now and opening night on September 5, let’s look at the biggest fantasy question for all 32 NFL teams.

Fantasy Football Questions for All 32 NFL Teams

AFC East

BUF – Could Dalton Kincaid finish as the overall TE1?

This past year, Kincaid stepped up when Dawson Knox missed time, averaging 10.7 half-point PPR fantasy points per game in the five contests without the veteran. While the Bills drafted Keon Coleman and signed Curtis Samuel in free agency, the second-year player finds himself in a Travis Kelce-like situation. He is the clear-cut best pass catcher on the roster, surrounded by a questionable wide receiver core. Kincaid should see the target volume needed to be in the race for the overall TE1 finish.

MIA – Should Tyreek Hill be the first wide receiver drafted?

Hill finished the 2023 season as the WR2 behind CeeDee Lamb. However, he was the WR1 on a points-per-game basis, averaging 19.8 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. Yet, there are concerns with the superstar receiver heading into the 2024 season. He turned 30 in March and dealt with injuries late last year. Furthermore, Hill will have more competition for targets, with Jaylen Waddle healthy and Odell Beckham Jr. joining the team. While he is a top-five pick, Hill shouldn’t be the first wide receiver drafted.

NE – Are any Patriot wide receivers draftable?

New England has the worst wide receiver core in the NFL. The team’s veterans offer limited fantasy upside. However, the Patriots have a pair of rookies that fantasy players should consider drafting. While Ja’Lynn Polk was the first wide receiver the team picked during the NFL Draft, Javon Baker is the guy fantasy players should target in all fantasy formats. He had the 11th-high PFF receiving grade in the draft class last season and posted a higher yards per route run average than Rome Odunze (3.21 vs. 2.93).

NYJ – Can Aaron Rodgers finish as a top-12 quarterback?

Unfortunately, Rodgers didn’t make it one game with the Jets before tearing his Achilles. While coming off a massive injury at his age is a concern, I wouldn’t bet against the Future Hall of Famer in 2024. Rodgers was the QB13 in 2022. Furthermore, he had four consecutive years finishing as a top-nine quarterback before that. New York significantly improved its offensive line this offseason. They also signed Mike Williams and drafted Malachi Corley. Rodgers has the weapons and protection needed to be a QB1 if he is healthy.

AFC North

BAL – Will Derrick Henry be a stud or bust?

Henry was the RB8 in 2023, averaging 13.7 half-point PPR fantasy points per game after leading the NFL in rushing attempts (280). However, he averaged a career-low 4.2 yards per rushing attempt. Yet, Henry has a top-12 running back ADP for FantasyPros and Underdog Fantasy. The veteran takes over a Baltimore backfield that totaled 1,696 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns last season. While the age and mileage are a concern, Henry is in the ideal situation to crank out another top-12 finish.

CIN – Should fantasy players draft Zack Moss or Chase Brown first?

While many believe Moss will replace Joe Mixon as the lead back in Cincinnati, Brown is the better runner. According to Fantasy Points Data, he had a higher explosive run rate (9.1% vs. 3.1%) and yards after contact per attempt (3.09 vs. 2.29) than Moss did during his time as a starter for the Indianapolis Colts last season. Furthermore, Brown had a significantly higher yards per route run average (4.46 vs. 0.98) than Moss last year. I’ll happily draft the second-year player two rounds later than the veteran.

CLE – What should fantasy players expect from Nick Chubb?

Unfortunately, Chubb suffered a gruesome knee injury early in 2023. While the star running back’s career isn’t over, the Browns haven’t said when they expect him back on the field. Fantasy players should prepare for Chubb to start the 2024 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list (PUP). While the team didn’t re-sign Kareem Hunt, they did add D’Onta Foreman and Nyheim Hines to pair with Jerome Ford. Unless Cleveland announces that Chubb will be ready for Week 1, I have no interest in drafting the veteran running back.

PIT – Can George Pickens be a top-12 wide receiver?

Fantasy players aren’t excited to see Arthur Smith calling the plays in Pittsburgh. However, Pickens is finally the No. 1 wide receiver on the team. The young wide receiver has flashed superstar talent but has also struggled with mental lapses in his career. Yet, he was the WR13, averaging 14.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game that Diontae Johnson missed with an injury. With the veteran gone and limited target competition, Pickens could finish the 2024 season as a WR1 with Russell Wilson and Justin Fields under center.

AFC South

HOU – Who is the No. 1 wide receiver in Houston?

The Texans traded for Stefon Diggs this offseason. Unfortunately, that only made things more complicated for fantasy players. Nico Collins and Tank Dell are coming off outstanding seasons but now have to share targets with the veteran wide receiver. However, Collins is the No. 1 pass catcher. Last year, he led the team in target share (21.1%), target per route run rate (28%), receiving yards market share (32.5%), yards per route run (3.37), end zone targets (10) and first-read target share (27%), per Fantasy Points Data.

IND – Could Anthony Richardson be the overall QB1?

Unfortunately, Richardson’s rookie season ended after playing only four games. However, the former Florida star was the QB11 on a points-per-game basis, averaging 18.2 fantasy points per contest. Yet, he left two games early with injuries. Richardson averaged 25.3 fantasy points, 211.5 passing yards, 1.5 touchdowns, 48 rushing yards and a touchdown in the two games he finished as a rookie. The Colts improved his receiving core during the NFL Draft, adding Adonai Mitchell. Richardson has overall QB1 upside if he can stay healthy.

JAC – Will Trevor Lawrence bounce back in 2024?

Lawrence was the QB7 in 2022, averaging 17.4 fantasy points per game. He had a 25-8 touchdown to interception ratio that season. Unfortunately, the former No. 1 overall pick regressed last year despite the addition of Calvin Ridley. Lawrence was the QB12 in 2023, averaging 16.4 fantasy points per game with a 21-14 touchdown to interception ratio. However, the star quarterback struggled to connect with Ridley and dealt with injuries. The Jaguars added to his receiving core this offseason. Hopefully, that leads to a bounce-back year for Lawrence.

TEN – Can Will Levis have a sophomore-year breakout?

Many had their doubts about Levis before he stepped onto an NFL field. However, he surprised everyone with a four-passing touchdown and 26.2 fantasy point performance in his first career start. Unfortunately, the former Kentucky star averaged only 9.4 fantasy points per game and had four passing touchdowns over the other eight games last season. Yet, fantasy players should have faith that Levis has a sophomore-year breakout. The Titans significantly improved his protection and receiving core in the offseason, giving him an impressive supporting cast.

AFC West

DEN – What should fantasy players do with Denver’s backfield?

Fantasy players had high hopes for Javonte Williams after an impressive rookie season. Unfortunately, he was the RB30, averaging 9.7 half-point PPR fantasy points per game in his first season with Sean Payton. Williams played 46% of the snaps and saw 54.6% of the backfield touches. However, he is the only running back on the roster that Payton inherited. Jaleel McLaughlin flashed up as a rookie, and Audric Estime was a fifth-round pick this year. Fantasy players should proceed with caution when drafting any Denver running back.

KC – Should Travis Kelce be the first tight end drafted?

Kelce’s run finishing as the TE1 ended in 2023. The future Hall of Famer was the TE3, averaging 11.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. Unfortunately, he severely struggled in the second half of the season. The veteran was the TE1 over the first seven weeks, averaging 16.8 fantasy points per game. By comparison, he was the TE12, averaging eight fantasy points per game from Week 8 through the end of the year. While Kelce is still a top-five tight end, he shouldn’t be the first one drafted.

LV – Will Zamir White have a featured workload?

After spending most of his career glued to the bench, White was outstanding to end this past season. He was the RB8, averaging 14.1 half-point PPR fantasy points per game during the four weeks Josh Jacobs missed with an injury. More importantly, White had 20 or more touches in all four contests, totaling 100 or more scrimmage yards in all but one game. While the Raiders added Alexander Mattison and Dylan Laube, neither will threaten White’s featured role. He is one of my must-have running back draft targets.

LAC – Is Justin Herbert draftable in a 1QB league?

Unfortunately, Herbert’s fantasy value has taken a massive hit over the past few months. Jim Harbaugh and Greg Roman want a run-heavy offense. Meanwhile, the Chargers got rid of Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Gerald Everett and Austin Ekeler, replacing them with DJ Chark, Gus Edwards and a pair of blocking tight ends. While Herbert is the QB12 in the FantasyPros ADP, he is the QB17 in Underdog Fantasy ADP. Despite the changes this offseason, the star quarterback has too much talent not to get drafted in 1QB leagues.

NFC East

DAL – Which running back should fantasy players draft first?

Dallas lost Tony Pollard in free agency, replacing him with Royce Freeman. While many expected them to pick a running back early in the NFL Draft, the Cowboys didn’t select one. Instead, they re-signed Rico Dowdle and brought back Ezekiel Elliott after a year with the New England Patriots. Hopefully, Dallas trades for Najee Harris or James Conner before Week 1. Yet, that seems unlikely. If fantasy players have to pick between Elliott and Dowdle, I would draft the veteran, but not before the double-digit rounds.

NYG – Should fantasy players draft Malik Nabers as a top-15 wide receiver?

FantasyPros ADP has Marvin Harrison Jr. as the WR10. Meanwhile, Nabers is the WR25 despite being in a similar situation. Nabers has a far worse quarterback situation than Harrison. However, both rookie wide receivers will be the top-targeted guy for their team. Yet, fantasy players can draft Nabers three rounds later. He has an ADP lower than several veterans with age and target competition concerns. The former LSU star will overcome New York’s quarterback situation and be a WR1 as a rookie.

PHI – How much will Jalen Hurts impact Saquon Barkley‘s touchdown production?

Some have concerns about Barkley in Philadelphia because of Hurts. This past year, the star quarterback accounted for 14 of 15 Eagles rushing attempts inside the two-yard line. More importantly, he had 15 of the Eagles’ 22 rushing touchdowns this past season. However, Miles Sanders had success playing alongside Hurts in 2022. That year, he had 11 rushing touchdowns compared to 13 for the star quarterback. Barkley has been a consistent RB1 despite averaging 0.47 rushing touchdowns per game in his career. He will be fine playing alongside Hurts.

WAS – Is Austin Ekeler or Brian Robinson Jr. the team’s RB1?

The Commanders completely re-did their roster this offseason, adding several free agents, including Ekeler. While the move makes sense on paper for the team, it makes things messy for fantasy players. Robinson was the RB22 last season, averaging 12 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. He flashed upside in the receiving game, including a six-catch performance for 119 receiving yards and a touchdown in Week 10. While Ekeler has the higher FantasyPros ADP, fantasy players should take Robinson two rounds later. He is younger and offers more upside.

NFC North

CHI – Will Keenan Allen be a stud or bust?

Allen was the WR8 in 2023, averaging 17.3 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. However, fantasy players should be cautious with the veteran wide receiver. He is a volume-based receiver, averaging 9.4 targets per game in his career. Last year, Allen ranked 10th in the NFL with 150 targets despite missing nearly a quarter of the season. Unfortunately, the veteran won’t see the same target volume with DJ Moore, Rome Odunze and Cole Kmet on the team. His days of being a fantasy superstar are over.

DET – Can Sam LaPorta repeat as the overall TE1?

Tight ends rarely turn into fantasy stars during their rookie season. However, LaPorta was the TE1, averaging 11.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. The rookie star scored four more touchdowns than any other tight end. Furthermore, he was one of seven players to have double-digit receiving touchdowns in 2023. The Lions didn’t have much turnover in the offseason. With Ben Johnson back in Detroit, LaPorta will remain a focal point of the offense. He should be the favorite to end the upcoming season as the overall TE1.

GB – Is Christian Watson or Jayden Reed the team’s No. 1 wide receiver?

The Packers have one of the top receiving cores in the NFL. However, fantasy players will have to decide which wide receiver is the top guy in Green Bay. Watson has massive upside but comes with injury history. Meanwhile, Reed was a dynamic player as a rookie. While he comes with significant downside, Watson is the team’s No. 1 wide receiver. Reed averaged 9.6 half-point PPR fantasy points per game in the nine contests with Watson. By comparison, he averaged 14.2 fantasy points per game without him.

MIN – Should Justin Jefferson be the first wide receiver drafted?

Fantasy players made Jefferson the near consensus 1.01 pick in 2023. Unfortunately, he struggled to stay healthy, missing seven games and leaving two others early. The superstar was the WR5 on a points-per-game basis, averaging 16.8 fantasy points per contest. Furthermore, he had over 1,000 receiving yards despite missing nearly half the season. However, fantasy players can’t love that Jefferson’s quarterback will be Sam Darnold or a rookie in 2024. While he should be a top-six fantasy pick, Jefferson shouldn’t be the first wide receiver drafted.

NFC South

ATL – How early is too early to draft Drake London and Kyle Pitts?

After years of awful quarterback production in Atlanta, fantasy players can finally rejoice. Arthur Smith is gone and Kirk Cousins is in town. London and Pitts are two of the more talented young pass catchers in the NFL, just waiting to break out for fantasy players. London is the WR12 in the FantasyPros ADP, while Pitts is the TE6. Fantasy players should feel confident drafting both players at their current cost, especially given their massive upside in a now fantasy-friendly offense.

CAR – Will Jonathon Brooks be a top-15 running back?

Reportedly, Brooks expects to be ready for the start of training camp after tearing his ACL at Texas. The former Longhorn was the first running back drafted despite the injury. He averaged 113.9 rushing yards and a touchdown per game this past season. Brooks is also a threat in the receiving game, making him the perfect guy for Dave Canales’ offense. He made Rachaad White an RB1 in 2023 despite averaging only 3.6 yards per rushing attempt. Brooks can have an even better year if he is ready for training camp.

NO – Can Kendre Miller have a fantasy-relevant role?

Many had high hopes for Miller as a rookie. Unfortunately, he fell flat on his face. Furthermore, the former TCU star missed nine games because of injuries this past season. Yet, fantasy players should take a shot on Miller late in their fantasy drafts. He was impressive in the Week 18 matchup that Alvin Kamara missed with an injury. Miller was the RB13 that week, scoring 14.4 half-point PPR fantasy points. Kamara will be the starter in 2024 but expect Miller to have a meaningful role.

TB – Should Rachaad White get drafted as an RB1?

White was the RB7 last year, averaging 13.9 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. However, he was second in rushing attempts (272) but 14th in yards (990). Furthermore, White ranked 89th in yards after contact per attempt, 84th in missed tackles forced per attempt and 76th in explosive run rate in 2023 (per Fantasy Points Data). While fantasy players can’t love those statistics, the young running back should have a featured role again this upcoming season. White is worthy of a low-end RB1 draft pick.

NFC West

ARI – Is Marvin Harrison Jr. a clear-cut top-10 wide receiver pick?

The short answer is yes, Harrison is a must-draft top-10 wide receiver. Arizona lost Marquise Brown and Rondale Moore this offseason. The two receivers combined for 10.9 targets per game in 2023. While the Cardinals recently signed Zay Jones, the veteran won’t stand in Harrison’s way of a massive target share as a rookie. DeAndre Hopkins averaged 13.6 half-point PPR fantasy points per game during his time as Kyler Murray‘s No. 1 wide receiver. Harrison is an elite wide receiver prospect, and fantasy players should happily make him their WR1.

LAR – Will Kyren Williams bust at his current ADP?

Many were shocked when the Rams used a third-round pick on Blake Corum. While the selection of Corum hurts Williams’ fantasy value, the star running back is also dealing with a foot injury. This past year, Williams ranked first in the NFL in rushing attempts per game (19), averaging two more per contest than Christian McCaffrey. The biggest concern is his goal-line role. Williams had 12 rushing touchdowns, the seventh-most in the NFL. Corum will severely cut into the total, making Williams a player I would avoid at his RB7 ADP.

SF – Should fantasy players draft Brandon Aiyuk or Deebo Samuel first?

Samuel was the WR12 this past season, averaging 14.2 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. Meanwhile, Aiyuk was the WR14, averaging 13.2 fantasy points per contest. However, Aiyuk was the better receiver, totaling more receptions, targets, and receiving yards than Samuel. Where Samuel made up for the receiving difference is on the ground, averaging 3.5 fantasy points per game as a runner. More importantly, he has more injury risk than Aiyuk. While both are top-20 wide receivers, Aiyuk should get drafted first.

SEA – Can Geno Smith bounce back after a disappointing 2023 season?

Unfortunately, Smith is coming off a disappointing season. However, the veteran was outstanding in 2022. He was the QB5, averaging 17.9 fantasy points per game. Furthermore, Smith had 30 passing touchdowns, the fourth-most in the NFL. Last year is one fantasy players should give the veteran a mulligan. He was playing behind a banged-up offensive line and dealt with his own injuries. Smith has an excellent trio of wide receivers, giving him the weapons needed to have a bounce-back season.
