Tier 1

Harrison Jr. was a no-brainer in this top tier as the clear alpha wide receiver for Kyler Murray in Arizona, ready to deliver fantasy production Day 1 in the NFL.

While there is going to be some skepticism around Nabers landing on the Giants with question marks at quarterback, being the clear focal point of that offense should help keep him in this range. Nabers is an elite target-earner and is the best after-the-catch receiver in this class, and one of the most talented wide receivers overall. For dynasty purposes, the hope will be that the Giants upgrade at quarterback at some point soon, but Nabers has more than enough ability to overcome landing spot in the meantime.

Tier 2

The only thing keeping Odunze out of the first tier is that he’ll be dealing with elite target competition in Chicago between Keenan Allen and DJ Moore. However, for dynasty purposes, betting on long-term talent keeps him in consideration as a high-end wide receiver asset.

Fantasy managers will also need to be patient with Brock Bowers, who lands in an offense with real question marks at quarterback for this season and the future. The Georgia tight end also has to compete with Michael Mayer, a second-round pick from last year. Results are usually underwhelming whenever a team has two tight ends with fantasy-producing potential, but Bowers has the talent to emerge as a better option for the Raiders in the future.

Worthy landing in Kansas City is arguably one of the best fits for his skillset and how the Chiefs' offense operates, relying heavily on after-the-catch production. Worthy’s 7.3 career yards after catch per reception is a top-five mark in this class, and combined with his 4.21-speed, he’ll be a great big-play weapon for Patrick Mahomes that is worth betting on for fantasy purposes.

Tier 3

Tier 3 consists of a talented group of players who might take a while before they deliver on their fantasy potential.

Brian Thomas Jr., specifically, is unlikely to be an immediate fantasy asset, considering his college production profile (highlighted here). Landing in Jacksonville, where Christian Kirk, Evan Engram, and even Gabe Davis should see the bulk of playing time and targets, only confirms that dynasty managers will need to be patient before getting consistent production from him.

Jonathon Brooks and Trey Benson may not step into the best spot, but they will be great Year 2 breakout candidates.

For Benson, James Conner will be a free agent at the end of this coming season, but because of his great play last year, he isn’t likely to go away in 2024.

Brooks will have a better shot of emerging in Year 1, with Miles Sanders already losing his job to Chuba Hubbard last year and Hubbard being a more replaceable back. However, the competition for touches is still likely to be an issue for Brooks to contend with, as he’s coming off an ACL tear and has just one year of starting experience in college.

Tier 4

Jayden Daniels, much like Caleb Williams, is going to start right away as a rookie and both have significant fantasy upside as mobile playmakers with weapons to throw to. Depending on need and feelings on those above or within this tier in 1-QB leagues, they can be higher or lower in these rankings.

The wide receivers in this tier rounded out the first round (Pearsall, Legette) and kicked off the second (Coleman). While they aren’t necessarily personal favorites at the position and create an ideal trade-back spot, they have the draft pedigree and landing spots that should allow them to produce early in their careers.

For Pearsall, however, that will also depend on Brandon Aiyuk’s status with the team for 2024. 

Tier 5

The ideal scenario for this range of rookie drafts is trading back from the wide receiver range in Tier 4 to grab one of these Tier 5 options while acquiring another asset.

Landing Burton, Wilson, Mitchell, Franklin, Baker or any other player in this group compared to the late Round 1/early Round 2 receivers could pay off long-term for dynasty managers.

Corum, Lloyd, and Irving weren't taken with premium picks, nor did they land in ideal situations, but these are talented running backs who could step in as immediate fantasy assets should there be an injury to a player ahead of them.

Tier 1

However dynasty managers want to approach the first few picks of the draft, there are a handful of good options to choose from, including two high-end fantasy quarterback options who were taken first and second in the NFL draft.

For those superflex managers who don’t need or miss out on Williams and Daniels at quarterback, Harrison and Nabers are excellent high-end options to contribute to fantasy starting lineups.

Tier 2

Both Maye and McCarthy become more valuable players in this format, and however fantasy managers want to treat this next tier of options, there isn’t really a bad choice here.

Brock Bowers is certainly more valuable in tight end-premium formats, but he’ll continue to be held back by his landing spot and quarterback situation. Things can change quickly from year to year, and being one of the best tight end prospects in recent history keeps him as a top dynasty target.

Tier 3

Worthy and McConkey become slightly less valuable in superflex/tight end-premium formats, blending in closer to some of the other skill position players worth taking a shot on relatively early in rookie drafts.

There’s likely to be some variation of this group to close out the first round of rookie drafts, with maybe another quarterback (Bo Nix) sneaking in there from time to time.

Tier 4

Nix and Penix jump up in value in two-QB leagues as decent bets to go early in the second round of most superflex rookie drafts. Neither is particularly exciting in terms of fantasy football, but they’re expected to be starters at some point, and that alone makes them draftable in this format.

Tier 5

This group rounds out the top 35, where fantasy managers may start to find themselves in dart-throw mode.

There are still some good options worth taking a shot on here, including the underappreciated Troy Franklin, who fell to the fourth round but reunites with his college quarterback after putting up 1,383 yards last season (sixth-most in the FBS).

There are still some good options worth taking a shot on here, including potential sleepers like Kimani Vidal, Tyrone Tracy Jr., Jacob Cowing, and DeVontez Walker.

Running backs like Lloyd, Estime, Irving, Shipley and Wright are all stuck behind legitimate fantasy starters at their positions, but they have talent and potential should their number get called at some point, making them worthy of consideration here.

Tight ends like Sinnott and Sanders aren’t overly exciting fantasy options, but they found decent landing spots to potentially be worthy of some spot starts. However, they will likely be inconsistent with their production, even in this tight end-premium format, which makes them less enticing than those ranked ahead of them.
