2024 Dynasty Fantasy Football Guide following Round 1 of NFL Draft

TE Premium Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft

1.01 – Marvin Harrison Jr. (WR – ARI)

Whether it be half-PPR, full PPR, standard or competitive figure skating, Marvin Harrison Jr. is the 1.01 of rookie drafts. He is the best wide receiver prospect we have seen since Julio Jones and A.J. Green, and he landed on an offense with a premier passer and little to no target competition. Don’t get cute; draft him and be happy about it.

1.02 – Malik Nabers (WR – NYG)

The margin between Malik Nabers and Rome Odunze was razor-thin before the draft. Nabers landed with the Giants, giving him a clear path to see 120+ targets in his rookie season. The only downside is the guy throwing him the ball, but there is a silver lining. Nabers made a name for himself with what he could do after the catch, and that bodes well for his early career success. The tier ends here, and the target volume is the primary reason.

1.03 – Rome Odunze (WR – CHI)

Rome Odunze would be the WR1 in almost any other draft class. He is an elite route runner who dominates in contested catch situations. He is the next iteration of Mike Evans in the NFL. His only obstacle in year one is that he is competing with two elite wide receivers, DJ Moore and Keenan Allen. Luckily, this is a dynasty, and while his year one production does have a cap, year two could be something truly special.

1.04 – Brock Bowers (TE – LV)

Spoiler: I am taking Bowers 1.04 in all 1-QB leagues. He is that good of a prospect.

Every once in a while, we get an elite pass-catching tight end, and people tell you, “he is going to be used as a wide receiver.” Well, this time, it’s looking like it is true. Brock Bowers was drafted early in round one by the Raiders, who just brought in top tight end prospect Michael Mayer last season. Bowers is a rare prospect at the position and should pay off for your dynasty rosters as early as year one. In leagues where you are getting more than one premium point per reception, you can put him ahead of Odunze. I wouldn’t fault you.

1.05 – Caleb Williams (QB – CHI)

Caleb Williams is not just a special talent; he also enters his rookie season with one of the best offenses in the entire NFC. It seems as if the Bears have finally learned from their mistakes, giving Williams three elite receivers, Cole Kmet, D’Andre Swift and a strong offensive line. Williams will be a QB1 in 2024 and is firmly inside the top 10 dynasty quarterbacks.

1.06 – Brian Thomas Jr. (WR – JAX)

Brian Thomas Jr. and the 1.06 kick off the next tier of rookies in 1-QB leagues. Thomas will contend with Christian Kirk, Evan Engram and, if you are a believer (you shouldn’t be), Gabe Davis. The nice thing is that none of these pass-catchers occupy the same role in an offense. Trevor Lawrence has weapons at every level, and if he can build chemistry with Thomas early, we could be looking at a Dynasty WR2.

1.07 – Ladd McConkey (WR – LAC)

Ladd McConkey is a good route runner with solid athleticism. He was my WR6 pre-draft, and even though he fell outside of round one, he was able to land with the Los Angeles Chargers. Some may have McConkey ahead of Brian Thomas Jr. I wouldn’t fault them for the pick. McConkey can win on the outside and can get open. Expect Justin Herbert to pepper him with targets early and often. The only thing holding him back is his extensive injury history.

1.08 – Xavier Worthy (WR – KC)

Xavier Worthy is the perfect fit for the Chiefs. He will be able to learn from a similar skill set veteran in Marquise Brown. While he does have some holes in his game, they can be coached and aren’t glaring enough that Patrick Mahomes can’t overcome. Add to this that a Rashee Rice suspension may be looming, and Worthy presents a solid option in the second half of your rookie drafts.

1.09 – Adonai Mitchell (WR – IND)

Adonai Mitchell’s draft process was a bit of a rollercoaster. He ultimately ended up with Anthony Richardson and Shane Steichen in the second round. A freak athlete who is a massively underrated route runner, Mitchell’s ceiling is an alpha wideout, not just for the Colts, but the entire NFL. He has question marks off the field that may hold him back to some extent, but when betting on outliers, Mitchell is my favorite guy to bet on.

1.10 – Jonathon Brooks (RB – CAR)

1.11 – Trey Benson (RB – ARI)

The running backs in this class were largely valued in the NFL, as we all expected. There are two that stand out as viable options for fantasy football for 2024 and beyond: Jonathon Brooks and Trey Benson. I don’t care what order you take these two in. Brooks is the most complete player of the two, but his recovery timeline from a torn ACL last season hinders his rookie value. If you are a contender, Trey Benson is more suited to your roster. Benson will sit behind James Conner early, but he has a shot to become a league-winning running back on an offense on the rise.

1.12 – Keon Coleman (WR – BUF)

Keon Coleman sneaks into the first round in fantasy drafts, even if he fell just short of that in the NFL Draft. How he gets used will be critical here as he is an unrefined route runner. He profiles well as a big slot, but if the Bills don’t use him in this capacity, there could be some growing pains. Being tied to Josh Allen with only Dalton Kincaid as competition, though, bodes well for his opportunity to work through those pains as early as possible.

Round Two

2.06 – Ben Sinnott (TE – WAS)

Ben Sinnott is a slow riser during the offseason. During his time at Kansas State, Sinnott put up 82 receptions, over 1,100 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. In his final season in college, he accumulated over half of those numbers. Not only that, but he posted some impressive numbers at the combine as well. The Commanders have only Zach Ertz right now at tight end, so we can expect Sinnott to be involved early and have a chance to take over the starting job by mid-season. I am fine investing as high as the 2.04 if you have a tight-end needy roster.
