Fantasy Football Draft Targets: Ty Chandler, Roschon Johnson, DeMario Douglas (2024)

A fantasy football league certainly isn’t won at the draft. The adjustments and trades made along the way will ultimately decide who is victorious in early January. That being said, pinpointing value in each round of drafts can help kickstart your team and limit the amount of housekeeping required over the course of the season.

It’s important to recall that every round will contain players who will ultimately fail miserably as well as those who achieve incredible success. Below is a list of players who, assuming health, will fall in the latter category. Here are fantasy football draft picks to target in each round. Below we dive into a few of our top targets for 2024 fantasy football drafts.

Players to Target in Each Round

For the sake of this exercise, we will be analyzing the players available in each round of a 12-team, half-PPR league. Here are fantasy football draft picks to target in each round.

Round 13: Ty Chandler (RB – MIN)

Chandler is one of the more intriguing handcuff RBs available in drafts this year. He profiles to have much more upside than the majority of backup RBs in the fantasy landscape. Aaron Jones has consistently struggled to stay healthy in Green Bay. It’s for this reason that the team limited his touches and often employed a tandem out of the backfield.

If the Vikings adopt the same game-plan, Chandler will have standalone value regardless of Jones’ health. If Jones were to get injured, Chandler would immediately be vaulted into solid RB2 consideration. He also showed great promise as a receiver in 2023, averaging 9.9 yards after catch per reception (according to PFF).

Round 14: Roschon Johnson (RB -CHI)

Johnson finds himself in arguably the most exciting offense in the NFL heading into 2024. While the team invested a hefty contract to acquire D’Andre Swift in free agency, Johnson will still have a valuable role in the offense. Most notably, he figures to be the primary goal-line back.

Swift has never been consistently relied upon at the goal-line and the Bears are likely to opt for the bigger back when trying to finish off drives. What’s more, Swift has a lengthy injury history and could miss time at some point next season. Johnson is the ideal low-risk, high-reward asset you want to be acquiring late in drafts.

Round 15: DeMario Douglas (WR – NE)

Douglas was very effective as a rookie. Among WRs with at least 50 targets, he ranked 3rd in yards after catch per reception and 14th in missed tackles forced (per PFF). Douglas is a true difference-maker after the catch, which separates him from the rest of this lackluster New England receivers.

Douglas should be the primary receiver in this offense and will earn a heavy dose of targets on a weekly basis. Whether it’s Drake Maye or Jacoby Brissett under center, the offensive game-plan will lean heavily on Douglas and his explosiveness in space.
