2024 Superflex Dynasty Rookie Rankings

With the 2024 NFL Draft now behind us, you may have one, two, or a dozen dynasty rookie drafts coming up. You may even already be drafting as some leagues tend to do so immediately after the NFL Draft. Ultimately, no two rookie drafts are the same. The managers, pick distribution, team needs, and so much more vary from league to league. When you’re on the clock, do what’s best for your team. These 2024 Superflex dynasty rookie rankings are merely a guide to which players to target when and choosing between them if given a choice.

What!? Your fantasy football league wasn’t hosted on Fantrax last season!? Once you see how Fantrax stacks up to the competition, we think you’ll be singing a different tune in the 2024 season.

2024 Superflex Dynasty Rookie Rankings

For the managers in 1QB leagues, you are not forgotten. I play in 1QB dynasty leagues, as well, though Superflex is almost always the default nowadays. Rather than generate an entirely separate piece just to adjust the rankings to the numbers of starting quarterbacks, I’ll give you my approach to this class here. Caleb Williams should be a first rounder in 1QB dynasty rookie drafts. I’m taking him as high as sixth-overall but he should be off of the board no matter what in the first 12 picks.

As for the other quarterbacks, how you choose to rank them is up to you. I think there is an obvious trio of Jayden Daniels, Drake Maye, and J.J. McCarthy behind Williams. In 1QB leagues, two of these players, if not all three, are second rounders. All four quarterbacks mentioned, plus Bo Nix and Michael Penix Jr., should all come off of the board in a four round dynasty rookie draft. If there are three rounds, I could see Nix and Penix Jr. left out all together as victims of circumstance.

If you are looking for just a bit more insight for any of the players below in these 2024 Superflex dynasty rankings, here are links to recaps and discussions for Round One, Rounds Two and Three, and Rounds Four through Seven of the 2024 NFL Draft of all of the fantasy football relevant players.

Caleb Willams walks into arguably the best situation for a rookie quarterback that we’ve ever seen. He has a legitimate shot to throw for 30 or more touchdowns and over 4,000 passing yards, two stats no Bears quarterback has ever reached in franchise history, as a rookie. Keenan Allen, D.J. Moore, and rookie Rome Odunze are up there in wide receiver trio rankings.

After Williams, I’m not going to argue much on the order of the next three quarterbacks. You could state a case for either of Jayden Daniels, J.J. McCarthy or Drake Maye to be QB2 in this class. Daniels, the 2023 Heisman Trophy winner, is the safest bet considering the combination of weapons, coaching, and most importantly, his rushing upside. McCarthy is only 21-years old and may not start right away. When he does, however, his receiving core of Justin Jefferson, Jordan Addison, T.J. Hockenson and even Aaron Jones out of the backfield, rivals that of Caleb Williams’ in Chicago. It’s worth noting that Minnesota ranks third and fourth in pass attempts per season respectively in the two seasons Kevin O’Connell has been head coach, too. Drake Maye bas the biggest uphill battle. His two best receivers may be the two rookies, Ja’Lynn Polk and Javon Baker, drafted after him this past weekend. He will take time to develop but the arm talent and other traits are there.

If you need a quarterback, but don’t have a top pick, you can still add value in Bo Nix or Michael Penix Jr. They are the QB5 and QB6 in these 2024 Superflex dynasty rookie draft rankings, but each have a potentially clear path to starting sooner than later. Nix’s competition for the job in Denver is Zach Wilson and Jarrett Stidham. He himself is 24-years old with plenty of starter experience. They even stole his Oregon team mate, wide receiver Troy Franklin, in the fourth round. Penix is a controversial NFL Draft pick, but is backing up Kirk Cousins who is coming off of an Achilles injury. If at any point he takes the field, he will be throwing to Drake London, Kyle Pitts, Bijan Robinson and others.

All other quarterbacks in these 2024 Superflex dynasty rankings are backup options on their respective teams. The rest of the top-10 are worth stashing on taxi spots if possible.

Dynasty Rookie Running Back Rankings

11Will ShipleyPhiladelphia Eagles
12Tyrone TracyNew York Giants
13Isaac GuerendoSan Francisco 49ers
14Rasheen AliBaltimore Ravens
15Jawhar JordanHouston Texans

Even if this draft class doesn’t have a blue chip running back, there are plenty to choose from, especially based on their landing spots. Jonthan Brooks is coming off of a November 2023 season-ending ACL tear, but comes off of the board first in the NFL Draft. That’s a great sign especially for a team with a new head coach and already established running backs. Trey Benson seemingly sits behind 29-year old James Conner in Arizona who is on the final year of his deal. He has also never played a full season in the NFL. Trey Benson is a future workhorse back.

Speaking of workhorse backs, Blake Corum now shares the Los Angeles Rams’ backfield with Kyren Williams. Corum has 731 collegiate career touches including back-to-back seasons of 247 or more carries and 1,200 rushing yards. He could challenge Kyren Williams for lead back duties, but this will be some sort of split either way. The Rams did not have a viable option outside of Williams heading into this draft.

The Miami Dolphins are adding Jaylen Wright‘s 4.38 [40-yard dash] speed to their already blazing fast offense. He is a big play waiting to happen and Miami spent a future third-round pick to draft him in this year’s fourth. Raheem Mostert is now 32-years old and De’Von Achane doesn’t profile as a bell-cow back.

MarShawn Lloyd sits behind Josh Jacobs in Green Bay, but for how long? Jacobs is playing under a four-year, $48 million contract, but only $12.5 million is guaranteed. That’s a little more than a franchise tag contract. There’s no guarantee that Jacobs is even a Packer in 2025 based on his deal. Lloyd has three-down capabilities, but for now, rounds out the top-five of 2024 Superflex dynasty rookie rankings given his situation.

If ranking a sixth-round pick as the RB6 of this class in my 2024 Superflex dynasty rankings in wrong, I don’t want to be right. Kimani Vidal has a similar build to Blake Corum. He also has the production, albeit at Troy University. The Los Angeles Chargers keep showing us they are going to run a ton in 2024. Between the coaching staff, emphasis of offensive line, and letting their top two receivers go in the off-season, this will be a much more ground-and-pound team. Vidal has a good chance to beat out Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins for lead back duties.

20Luke McCaffreyWashington Commanders

The top-five wide receivers in your rookie drafts will likely mirror the ones seen here, maybe in slightly different order. I have Rome Odunze above Malik Nabers which I know differs from consensus. Odunze’s quarterback situation is known and, assuming Keenan Allen (33 next April) walks in 2025, Odunze can be Caleb Williams’ top target.

Keon Coleman joins a Buffalo Bills offense that’s without both Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis in 2024. There are a ton of targets available for Coleman from fantasy football’s reigning QB1.

Ricky Pearsall drew first round draft capital from the 49ers, but they still have Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel on the roster. Assuming one of them is gone this or next season, Pearsall should develop into a reliable target for Brock Purdy who puts receivers like him in a fantastic position for yards after the catch. Troy Franklin drew furth round draft capital, but reunites with his college quarterback, Bo Nix. Franklin is a far better receiver than his draft capital lets on.

Ja’Lynn Polk is Drake Maye’s assumed WR1 after coming off of the board early in the second round. He’s a reliable receiver who does a lot of things well, but will take time to trust in your fantasy lineups. I really like the landing spot for Malik Washington. He’s another player that will need time sitting behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Given Miami’s consistent pre-snap motion and creative play designs, Washington can thrive, out of the slot especially, on plays that get the ball out of the Tua Tagovailoa’s hands quickly and into Washington’s.

A lot of the wide receivers in the 2024 NFL Draft class we need to be a bit more patient than usual on. There is potential across the board given their talent, but I expect a lack of immediate gratification. That doesn’t mean you should fade them in rookie drafts, however. When considering best players available, it will often be a wide receiver, especially from this group.

Dynasty Rookie Tight End Rankings

1Brock BowersLas Vegas Raiders
2Ben SinnottWashington Commanders
3Ja'Tavion SandersCarolina Panthers
4Theo JohnsonNew York Giants
5Erick AllCincinnati Bengals

I’m not trying to skimp out on the tight end position of 2024 Superflex dynasty rookie rankings. This class just doesn’t have too many fantasy football relevant options. Brock Bowers is a first round pick in any dynasty draft, even if you are underwhelmed by the Raiders landing spot. After missing out on a quarterback, the Raiders just flat out drafted an offensive player maker for the future. Bowers is a major threat after the catch and could finish second in targets and production behind Davante Adams in 2024. His presence extremely affects Michael Mayer’s value.

Outside of the Bowers, the other four tight ends of my 2024 Superflex dynasty rookie rankings are all worth stashing. Ben Sinnott is my TE2 of this class before and after the 2024 NFL Draft and the second tight end off of the 2024 NFL Draft board in the second round. He will be the starting tight end for Jayden Daniels to throw to in no time. Ja’Tavion Sanders is a great weapon for Bryce Young in Carolina, but will battle Diontae Johnson, Xavier Legette, Jonathan Mingo and Adam Thielen for targets. He’s probably a streamer, if at all, early on and throughout his career.
