Superflex Dynasty Startup Mock Draft: 12-Team (2024 Fantasy Football)

While everyone is knee-deep in dynasty rookie drafts, now is also the perfect month for dynasty startup drafts. Everyone knows the expression practice makes perfect, and there is no better way to practice than with the FantasyPros Dynasty Mock Draft Simulator.

I am picking 10th in this 12-team dynasty superflex mock draft which uses half-point PPR-scoring. The lineup for this mock draft is one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, one tight end, three flex, one superflex and six bench spots.

My goal for this mock was to use a zero-QB strategy while prioritizing wide receivers over running backs early in the superflex dynasty mock draft. I didn’t pick my first quarterback until the seventh round. Furthermore, I selected four wide receivers before drafting my second running back. Let’s see how it turned out.

2024 Dynasty Fantasy Football Guide

Superflex Dynasty Mock Draft

Here’s a look at all of my fantasy football picks from my latest superflex dynasty mock draft.

Round 1, Pick 10 – CeeDee Lamb (WR – DAL)

Despite a slow start, Lamb was unbelievable in 2023. He ended the year as the WR1, averaging 102.9 receiving yards and 19.7 fantasy points per game. The superstar set career highs in receptions (135), targets (181), receiving yards (1,749) and touchdowns (12). Yet, Lamb could be even better moving forward, starting in 2024. The Cowboys did little to improve Dak Prescott‘s receiving core after releasing Michael Gallup. Don’t be surprised if Lamb is the clear-cut WR1 in startup drafts starting in 2025.

Round 2, Pick 3 – Breece Hall (RB – NYJ)

the concern with Hall in 2023 was his health coming off a torn ACL. However, the former Iowa State star was unbelievable in his first game off the pitch count, totaling 177 rushing yards and 26.9 fantasy points. He ended the year on fire, averaging 22.6 fantasy points per game over the final five weeks. The Jets made four significant additions to their offensive line this offseason. Hall should average a career-high in yards per rushing attempt before contact this upcoming year.

Round 3, Pick 10 – Sam LaPorta (TE – DET)

Anyone who drafted LaPorta in the second or third round of their dynasty rookie drafts this past year spent the 2023 season taking victory laps almost every week. The former Iowa star was the TE1 his rookie year, averaging 11.5 fantasy points per game. More importantly, he ranked fourth in the NFL and first among tight ends in receiving touchdowns (10). While many expect Jameson Williams to have a breakout year in 2024, it’s more likely that LaPorta will set career highs in several categories after an impressive rookie season.

Round 4, Pick 3 – Drake London (WR – ATL)

London has been a fantasy disappointment his first two years in the NFL despite being one of the more talented younger wide receivers in the league. Thankfully, he will no longer get held back by awful quarterback play. Despite catching passes from Marcus Mariota, Desmond Ridder and Taylor Heinicke, the former USC star managed to average at least 10.5 fantasy points per game in both career seasons. Meanwhile, Kirk Cousins has produced multiple WR1s in the past, including two in the same year twice.

Round 5, Pick 10 – Rome Odunze (WR – CHI)

Unfortunately, Odunze getting the Bears is bad for his redraft fantasy value. He will be on my do-not-draft list for redraft leagues, as DJ Moore and Keenan Allen will be the top two receivers in Chicago this season. Therefore, expect Odunze to be this year’s Jaxon Smith-Njigba – a first-round pick who struggles to produce for fantasy players as a rookie. However, he will replace Allen after this season. Don’t be surprised if Odunze turns into Caleb Williams‘ go-to receiver for the next decade, starting in 2025.

Round 6, Pick 3 – Tee Higgins (WR – CIN)

It seems unlikely that Higgins will get moved this offseason despite asking the Bengals for a trade. Yet, the veteran is still a fantasy star despite playing alongside Ja’Marr Chase. This past year, Higgins and Joe Burrow struggled to stay healthy, limiting the star receiver’s fantasy production. However, he had three consecutive seasons averaging at least 10.1 fantasy points per game before 2023. Buy the dip on Higgins and draft him at a discount. He will rebound this upcoming season, especially with Tyler Boyd in Tennessee.

Round 7, Pick 10 – Jared Goff (QB – DET)

While it seems like Goff has been around forever, the veteran doesn’t turn 30 until October. He is coming off the second-best year of his career, totaling 30 passing touchdowns and 17 fantasy points per game. Goff is an ideal target when using a zero-QB strategy in a dynasty startup superflex draft. He scored 18 or more fantasy points in nearly half of the games this past season. The veteran provides my team with a safe floor most weeks while allowing me to stack points with Sam LaPorta.

Round 8, Pick 3 – Jonathon Brooks (RB – CAR)

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

Round 9, Pick 10 – Christian Kirk (WR – JAC)

Kirk was the biggest winner from Calvin Ridley signing with the Tennessee Titans in free agency. He had 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 getting, the veteran was the WR12, averaging 14.2 fantasy points per game.

Round 10, Pick 3 – Bryce Young (QB – CAR)

Unfortunately, Young’s rookie year was a complete nightmare. The Panthers gave him no chance to succeed in 2023. However, that won’t be the case this upcoming season. Carolina improved its offensive line in free agency, signing Damien Lewis and Robert Hunt. More importantly, they traded for Diontae Johnson and drafted Xavier Legette and Ja’Tavion Sanders, giving the second-year quarterback an impressive set of pass catchers. It’s a make-or-break season for Young, and I’m betting on a massive sophomore-year breakout.

Round 11, Pick 10 – MarShawn Lloyd (RB – GB)

Some might avoid Lloyd during their dynasty rookie drafts after he got picked by the Packers. However, the landing spot is appealing. Josh Jacobs signed a four-year deal with the team in free agency, but they can get out of the contract after the 2024 season with little penalty. Meanwhile, AJ Dillon is one of the worst running backs in the NFL. Lloyd could quickly earn a role in the passing game and possibly replace Jacobs, especially given the veteran’s injury history.

Round 12, Pick 3 – Will Levis (QB – TEN)

Levis was outstanding in his career debut, throwing four touchdowns and scoring 26.6 fantasy points. However, he had only four passing touchdowns and 75.4 fantasy points (9.4 per game) over the other eight contests in 2023. Thankfully, Tennessee significantly upgraded its supporting cast this offseason, signing Tony Pollard, Calvin Ridley, Tyler Boyd and Lloyd Cushenberry III. The Titans also used their top-10 pick in the NFL Draft on JC Latham, giving the young quarterback a franchise left tackle.

Round 13, Pick 10 – 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. In 2023, the 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 14, Pick 3 – Kimani Vidal (RB – LAC)

Everyone expected Jim Harbaugh to select Blake Corum after only signing Gus Edwards and injury-prone J.K. Dobbins in free agency. Instead, the Chargers waited until the sixth round to add a running back. Vidal averaged 3.6 yards after contact per rushing attempt and posted a 31.9% missed tackled forced rate this past season. No one should be surprised if he ends up as the lead back in Los Angeles this year with limited and uninspiring competition ahead of him on the depth chart.

Round 15, Pick 10 – Javon Baker (WR – NE)

New England’s wide receiver room was the island of misfit toys heading into the NFL Draft. While he was the second wide receiver the team drafted, I’m all in on Baker. We’ve seen Day 3 wide receivers turn into stars as rookies, including Amon-Ra St. Brown and Puka Nacua. While he won’t be a superstar, Baker had the 11th-high PFF receiving grade in the draft class among wide receivers last season and posted a higher yards per route run average than Odunze (3.21 vs. 2.93).

Round 16, Pick 3 – Geno Smith (QB – SEA)

With the final pick in this startup dynasty mock draft, I land a veteran quarterback with meaningful upside. Smith had a disappointing 2023 season, ending the year as the QB19. However, he was the QB5 two years ago, averaging 17.9 fantasy points per game with a nearly 3-1 touchdown to interception ratio. Seattle should throw the ball more under offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb. With D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Jaxon Smith-Njigba at his disposal, Smith could have another QB1 finish this upcoming season.
