6 Fantasy Football Draft Values: MFL Leagues (2024)

6 Fantasy Football Draft Values: MFL Leagues (2024)

While the 2024 NFL regular season is still months away, now is the time to start preparing for redraft leagues. Many factors go into fantasy players winning their redraft league every year. However, the top factor is drafting players at a value.

Let’s look at my six favorite fantasy football draft values based on MyFantasyLeague (MFL) average draft position (ADP) for redraft leagues.

Fantasy Football Draft Values: MFL Leagues

Jared Goff (QB – DET)

  • MFL ADP – QB18

The veteran quarterback will be one of my highest-rostered players this year. Goff was the QB7 in 2023, averaging 17 fantasy points per game. Detroit managed to hold onto Ben Johnson this offseason after having one of the top offenses in 2023. Last year, Goff averaged 2.1 passing touchdowns and 19.9 fantasy points per game in 12 contests in a dome. By comparison, he averaged one passing touchdown and 13.3 fantasy points per game in the five contests outside. The veteran plays only three games outdoors in 2024.

Joe Mixon (RB – HOU) 

  • MFL ADP – RB17

While Mixon hasn’t been the most efficient running back, the veteran has had three consecutive top-12 finishes in half-point PPR scoring. Some are concerned that Mixon won’t see the same volume in Houston that he had with the Cincinnati Bengals. However, that won’t be the case. Last year, the Texans’ backfield averaged 22 touches per contest. Furthermore, Devin Singletary was the RB9 from Week 10 through Week 18 as the featured guy, averaging 19.4 touches and 13.2 fantasy points per game. Mixon will remain a low-end RB1 in Houston.

Zamir White (RB – LV)

  • MFL ADP – RB21

White was the RB8, averaging 14.1 half-point PPR fantasy points per game during the four weeks Josh Jacobs missed with an injury last season. He had the fourth-highest yards after contact per rushing attempt (3.06) among running backs with at least 30 attempts during those four weeks, ahead of Christian McCaffrey and Jahmyr Gibbs (per Fantasy Points Data). More importantly, White had 20 or more touches in every contest, totaling 100 or more scrimmage yards in all but one game. He is one of my must-have running back draft targets.

George Pickens (WR – PIT)

  • MFL ADP – WR31

Many believe Pickens will have a breakout season after the Steelers traded away Diontae Johnson, making him the new No. 1 wide receiver in Pittsburgh. Pickens was outstanding in the four games without Johnson last season. He was the WR13, averaging 14.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game during those four weeks, posting the eighth-highest fantasy points per route ran rate (0.49) among wide receivers with at least 110 routes (per Fantasy Points Data). More importantly, Pickens could be even better after the Steelers significantly improved their quarterback unit.

Amari Cooper (WR – CLE)

  • MFL ADP – WR33

Cleveland started five quarterbacks last year. Yet, Cooper was the WR18, averaging more half-point PPR fantasy points per game (12.7) than Davante Adams, Michael Pittman Jr. and Jaylen Waddle. Furthermore, the veteran was outstanding playing with any quarterback besides Dorian Thompson-Robinson. Cooper averaged 15.1 fantasy points per game in the 12 contests he played that Thompson-Robinson didn’t start, which would have made him the WR6 on a points-per-game basis. Cooper should get drafted as a WR2, not a WR3 or flex option, despite the arrival of Jerry Jeudy.

Jake Ferguson (TE – DAL)

  • MFL ADP – TE12

My draft plan at tight end this year is to draft and stud in the first few rounds or wait to pick Ferguson. He was the TE9 in his first season as the starter, averaging 10.4 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. More importantly, Ferguson was the clear-cut No. 2 guy, ranking second on the team in receptions (71), targets (102), and receiving yards (761) in 2023. He should have a larger role this upcoming season after the Cowboys lost Michael Gallup and Tony Pollard in the offseason.
