2024 Dynasty Rookie WR Landing Spots

Rookie draft season is here! Time has flown by, and the 2024 NFL Draft is behind us. If you are like me you probably spent countless hours mock drafting before the 2024 NFL Draft. Well, we finally have the real thing. The blueprint for fantasy football has been mapped out. Some of our favorite wide receivers got fantastic landing spots and are set to produce right away while others may have some bumps in the road. Let's talk about the 2024 Dynasty Rookie WR Landing Spots.

I hope you stocked up on first and second round 2024 rookie picks for your upcoming rookie drafts! I'd be thrilled to have any one of these players on my team to build around for the future. Probably shouldn't have sent as many RBs away for picks as I did, but I'm hype! Getting at least one share of every player on this list is my goal between now and Week 1 of the 2024 NFL Regular Season.

Obviously, we will discuss the "Big 3" but how about Mr. Electric himself, Keon Coleman, or Javon Baker who "makes people in wheelchairs stand up." So many big personalities, so much star potential. The NFL is in a great place, and these 2024 Dynasty Rookie WR Landing Spots are just the start.

Marvin Harrison Jr., Arizona Cardinals

The best WR prospect since Ja'Marr Chase finds himself in an offense with Kyler Murray in Arizona. The Cardinals have been in desperate need for true a WR1 after DeAndre Hopkins left for Tennessee, and losing Marquise Brown to free agency this year. Harrison will step in to the number 1 role right away and look to lead the team in targets this season. Tight-end Trey McBride will be his main target competition while Michael Wilson and Greg Dortch fill out the WR2 and WR3 slots respectively. McBride and Murray may already have a connection but there should be plenty of targets for both McBride and Harrison Jr. to feast. They will need to score a lot of points in that division to keep up with the 49ers, Rams, and Seahawks so I expect some fireworks between Murray and Harrison Jr.

Malik Nabers, New York Giants

Instead of the Chargers and Justin Herbert we get the Giants and Daniel Jones (or Drew Lock). Not the best landing spot, but not the worst. Nabers steps into the immediate WR1 role just like Harrison Jr. The Giants have needed a true number 1 receiver for years now and they finally got their guy. High expectations have been set for Nabers as he steps in as the next big time WR from LSU to bring his talents to MetLife Stadium. He has the potential to be even better than Odell Beckham Jr. ever was at his peak.

He will be running along side Wan'Dale Robinson, Darius Slayton, and Jalin Hyatt so he should be in line to get a ton of targets. The only question is can Daniel Jones get him the football, and put him in a position to succeed? The Giants will most likely be in the market for a new QB in 2025 so hopefully Nabers can get his QB of the future sooner rather than later.

Rome Odunze, Chicago Bears

Odunze joins D.J. Moore and Keenan Allen to form a top five pass catching trio in the NFL right away for the Chicago Bears. The former Washington Husky will now be catching passes from the number 1 overall pick Caleb Williams for at least the next four years. He may not be a top 2 target earner on the team, but Keenan Allen probably does not have many years left in the NFL being 32 years old already.

This is a lot like the Jaxon Smith-Njigba situation in Seattle where he walked into an offense with D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. We are going to have to wait and see what happens with Allen before we can count on Odunze being the powerhouse WR we know he can be for fantasy football. With how high-powered every offense in the NFC North is now the Bears will probably have to put up lots of points to survive. There should still be a decent number of targets to be had for Odunze in year 1.

Brian Thomas Jr., Jacksonville Jaguars

A brand new vertical threat for Trevor Lawrence has arrived in Jacksonville by way of Baton Rouge. The former LSU product had a huge college season in 2023 putting up 17 touchdowns. He will step in and replace Zay Jones in an offense that is looking to bounce back in 2024. His target competition is Christian Kirk, Gabe Davis, and Evan Engram in a scheme that will look to throw the ball down the field more often in 2024. Given his athleticism and size he should be able to earn some high quality targets, and he will be tied to a great QB in Trevor Lawrence who is getting ready to sign a long-term deal for the Jags.

Xavier Worthy, Kansas City Chiefs

Xavier Worthy steps into an offense with Patrick Mahomes, and you know Andy Reid already has some wild plays drawn up for him. Remember Tyreek Hill in Kansas City? That is what could be in store for Worthy in this offense. Massive ceiling potential. Worthy may not be quite as effective as Hill given his slight frame (weighed in at 165lbs at the NFL Combine), but with 4.21 speed he will be able to go around defenders and gain separation in a hurry.

He does have some target competition in Travis Kelce, Rashee Rice, and newly acquired Marquise Brown but Rice faces a potential suspension to start the year. Worthy may have a good opportunity to build a rapport with Mahomes right away. Brown is only on a one year deal, and though Travis Kelce just signed a two year extension, he is still 34 years old.

Ricky Pearsall, San Francisco 49ers

Pearsall was selected 31st overall by the 49ers, and he lands in an offense where there are a lot of mouths to be fed. If Aiyuk or Samuel are traded he will be in line for a larger role. For now, he is at best the fourth of fifth receiving option behind Aiyuk, Samuel, Kittle, and McCaffrey. Obviously, he has draft capital we cannot ignore so there must be a plan for how Shanahan plans to utilize him. I think we need to go into the 2024 season with tempered expectations for Pearsall though while we wait and see what unfolds for Aiyuk and Samuel.

Xavier Legette, Carolina Panthers

The Panthers traded up for Legette to select him with the last pick of the first round. He finds himself in a rebuilding offense that just added Diontae Johnson, Ja'Tavion Sanders, and Jonathon Brooks. He should pretty easily beat out Jonathon Mingo for a starting job. If that is the case he will share the field with Diontae Johnson and Adam Thielen. Depending on Bryce Young's improvement in his second year this could turn into a nice fantasy opportunity for Legette. Thielen most likely won't be around too much longer, which will give Legette a chance to earn more targets in the future.

Keon Coleman, Buffalo Bills

After trading back a few times the Bills selected Coleman with the first pick of the second round. Analysts and scouts had mixed views about Coleman throughout the entire draft process. The combination of his athletic traits, size, speed, and youth has kept me intrigued though. Now, he lands with Josh Allen on a team that clearly intends to feature him in a big time role.

It will be interesting to see how the Bills utilize Coleman. A lot of people mislabel him as a contested-catch WR or solely a deep threat when that isn't his game at all. He has the size and speed to be that player, but he is much more lethal on shallow and intermediate routes that allow him to catch and run. He is a must-draft for me, and if you have been on social media lately you know he is an electric factory of a human being. Excited to watch his career play out in the AFC East.

Ladd McConkey, Los Angeles Chargers

McConkey is just the type of do-it-all all Wide Receeiver Justin Herbert and the Chargers needed to help this offense after losing every passing weapon they had. This will be a run-heavy scheme under Greg Roman, but McConkey's target competition is weak. Quentin Johnston, Joshua Palmer, and Will Dissly project as the other starting pass catchers for this team right now.

McConkey could and should very quickly develop into Herbert's favorite target. He can work in the slot and out wide, and really run any route in the book. Great fantasy landing spot for McConkey.

Ja'Lynn Polk, New England Patriots

New England did right by their new rookie QB, Drake Maye. They went and drafted two high-floor WRs in Polk and Javon Baker.

Given Polk's sure-handedness and ability to win contested catches down the field he could very quickly become Maye's go-to target. He has the opportunity to be the No.1 WR in a fairly weak WR room.

Not sure who exactly will be starting for NE, but it projects to be DeMario Douglas, Kendrick Bourne, and Hunter Henry as of now. Polk should be the WR1 given that competition, and he is now tied to the 3rd overall pick for the next four years.

Adonai Mitchell, Indianapolis Colts

Mitchell joins Pittman Jr. and Josh Downs in a well-rounded WR room for Indianapolis. He will most likely be their outside deep threat, while Pittman works the intermediate and middle of field routes, and Downs works the slot. It is hard to project just how much passing volume there will be to go around given Anthony Richardson's rushing ability, but Mitchell flashed enough big play ability in college to make him an enticing add in dynasty leagues.
