5 Dynasty Draft Values: Quarterbacks (2024 Fantasy Football)

Startups. Startups. Startups. It is dynasty startup SZN! I know we all return to redraft in the summer months and the best ball streets are all blazing, but this is also the time for dynasty startups. Before you enter another dynasty fantasy football startup, read up on my top five quarterback values and run a handful of startup mock drafts with our draft simulator.


Dynasty Draft Values: DBro’s Top 5 Quarterbacks

*All data utilized in this article courtesy of FantasyPros, Fantasy Points Data, PFF and unless otherwise specified. All average draft position (ADP) data cited per DLF May Superflex ADP.

Jordan Love (QB – GB) | ADP: QB11, 16.5 Overall

Jordan Love broke out in his first year as a starter for Green Bay as the QB5 in fantasy points per game. The only reason Love isn’t ranked a tad higher is because we have only seen a small stretch of excellence for him, and he is currently slated to be an unrestricted free agent after this season. It feels like when and not if Green Bay will extend their young passer. Once that happens and it is backed with a longer track record of top-shelf play, he will be even more expensive in dynasty formats. In Weeks 10-18 last year, he was third in passing grade, second in passing touchdowns and big-time throw rate and seventh in clean pocket passer rating. Once Love looks amazing this season and gets locked up, his dynasty stock will soar.

Jayden Daniels (QB – WAS) | ADP: QB14, 24.5 Overall

A rookie quarterback with tangible rushing talent and an electric arm, and people don’t want to rank him as a top-12 dynasty quarterback. I don’t understand. At all. Jayden Daniels should be ranked in the same area code as Anthony Richardson (QB7) or near Kyler Murray (QB9). Are people worried about the offensive line? Ok, well, last year, they ranked 15th in pass blocking grade, and I can make an easy case this unit will be improved in 2024. Is this ranking centered around Daniels’ talent? Ok, well, let’s take the rushing cheat code out of the equation. Let’s talk about his talent as a passer. Last year, he was second in Pro Football Focus’ (PFF) passing grade, first in yards per attempt, third in big-time throw rate and first in clean pocket passer rating. I don’t know why people aren’t respecting his talent, but this creates a wonderful buying opportunity in dynasty startups. Buy him now.

Jared Goff (QB – DET) | ADP: QB18, 36 Overall

Jared Goff re-upped with Detroit for four years, with three years of good money on the contract. Goff is now tied to an offense for the next three years that ranked fifth in points per game, third in yards per play and sixth in red zone scoring attempts per game. Last year, Goff returned to the QB1 ranks as the QB11 in fantasy points per game. That was the third QB1 season he’s posted in his career. He looks primed to do it again. Last year, Goff ranked third in clean pocket passer rating, sixth in passer grade, 10th in yards per attempt and sixth in adjusted completion rate. The skill cupboards are stocked to the brim. Goff is set to smash again in Superflex as a QB1 in QB2 clothing.

J.J. McCarthy (QB – MIN) | ADP: QB19, 37.7 Overall

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised considering all of the hate J.J. McCarthy got during the NFL Draft process, but QB19…QB19…seriously? Are you serious? Ok, I guess I’ll draft all the McCarthy in startups this season. If I told you there was a rookie quarterback ranked as the QB19 in startups that last year was 10th in passing grade, fourth in adjusted completion rate, 11th in yards per attempt and 16th in clean pocket passer rating, people would jump all over him. That is until they heard the name McCarthy. Put your bias aside. It’s time. McCarthy is a damn good prospect that landed with an offensive-minded head coach and solid skill players surrounding him with Justin Jefferson, T.J. Hockenson and Jordan Addison. Draft McCarthy and thank me later.

Aaron Rodgers (QB – NYJ) | ADP: QB28, 97.5 Overall

If you’re playing dynasty in a two-year window, then you should love Aaron Rodgers more than this blasphemous QB28 ranking in startups. Rodgers has two years of strong money left on his contract, so I do expect him to play this year and next. I get the Achilles injury is a concern, but the last time we saw Rodgers play a full season, he still had it — ranking 10th in passing grade and fifth in big-time throw rate. I think he can recapture that magic for the next two seasons and at least be a strong QB2. Although, he could flirt with QB1 numbers. If that happens, Rodgers will be a smash value in startups.
