2024 Fantasy Football PPR Mock Draft - Post-NFL Draft

The NFL rosters are finally shaping up with the 2024 NFL Draft officially behind us. Now we can all start preparing for the 2024 fantasy football season.  To help kickstart the preparation, The Fantasy Six Pack staff participated in a post-NFL draft 2024 Fantasy Football PPR mock draft. This draft included 12 teams, going 15 rounds with a roster construction of 1QB/2RB/3WR/1TE/2 Flex/1 DEF.

I am sure many things will change between now and draft season, but it is never too early to start preparing for your drafts, so you can get a leg up on the competition.

Let's dive into things to see where each player was drafted, the positional runs, draft strategies and more.

Round 1

  1. Christian McCaffrey, RB1, SF
  2. Ja'Marr Chase, WR1, CIN
  3. Tyreek Hill, WR2, MIA
  4. Breece Hall, RB2, NYJ
  5. Ceedee Lamb, WR3, DAL
  6. Justin Jefferson, WR4, MIN
  7. Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR5, DET
  8. Bijan Robinson, RB3, ATL
  9. Garrett Wilson, WR6, NYJ
  10. A.J. Brown, WR7, PHI
  11. Puka Nacua, WR8,
  12. Jahmyr Gibbs, RB4, DET

It was interesting to see the first-round strategy shift to more of a wide receiver-heavy first-round. In years past where you would see 6-8 running backs drafted within the first 12 picks and in this mock, just four running backs went compared to eight receivers.

Christian McCaffrey is the unquestioned 1.01 in fantasy football heading into this season after averaging 24.5 fantasy points per game. The next closest running back to that number last season was Breece Hall who averaged 17.1. That is a massive positional advantage having CMC over any other running back.

I was a bit surprised to see Michael Bonni draft Ja'Marr Chase as the number one wide receiver off of the board over the likes of Tyreek Hill, and Ceedee Lamb. Even though Chase is the alpha in that Bengals offense. Chase also still has to contend with targets with Tee Higgins who is an important piece when healthy. It was an interesting start to this fantasy football PPR redraft mock draft that's for sure.

My Round 1 Pick

I personally usually like to build my rosters around the wide receiver position. However, with the top five wide receivers off the board, I quickly pivoted to my RB3 Bijan Robinson.

I feel like once ARSB goes off the board there is a small tier drop in wide receivers and I thought Bijan had more value than Garrett Wilson or A.J. Brown. Bijan could be in line for a second-year breakout with the departure of Arthur Smith who didn't always seem to use Bijan Robinson enough at times last season. Let's hope new offensive coordinator Zac Robinson has a better plan for Bijan heading into 2024.

Round 2

  1. Marvin Harrison Jr., WR9, ARI
  2. Jonathan Taylor, RB5, IND
  3. Kyren Williams, RB6, LAR
  4. Saquon Barkley, RB7, PHI
  5. Davante Adams, WR10, LV
  6. Nico Collins, WR11, HOU
  7. D.J. Moore, WR12, CHI
  8. Brandon Aiyuk, WR13, SF
  9. De'Von Achane, RB8, MIA
  10. Chris Olave, WR14, NO
  11. Jaylen Waddle, WR15, MIA
  12. Michael Pittman, WR16, IND

Wide receivers were still flying off the board with eight of them going in round two. We did see a small running back run after the surprising pick of rookie Marvin Harrison Jr. going off the board at the top of round two. At first glance, I thought it was entirely too early, but the more I thought about it, there were only a few wide receivers I would have drafted before MHJ in this round. With him being the unquestioned WR1 in the Cardinals offense with a competent quarterback in Kyler Murray, he could see 140-150 targets.

I just want to touch on the tier of running backs that went 2.02-2.04. Jonathan Taylor, Kyren Williams, and Saquan Barkley are presumed to see a monster workload heading into this season and boy do we love volume out of the backfield.

After those seven running backs went De'Von Achane was the RB8 off the board when John LaPresto decided to double-tap RB. Normally I do not love Achane being the RB8 off the board but with LaPresto's roster construction, having the safe Breece Hall as his RB1, going for someone with the upside of Achane as his RB2 makes perfect sense.

My Round 2 Pick

Davante Adams was not someone I was targeting very much in drafts last season because of bad quarterback play. But times change and when you see nine of the first 16 picks come up wide receiver you can not fall too far behind at that position in today's fantasy football. The Raiders improved slightly at the quarterback position by bringing in Gardner Minshew as a free agent.

With Minshew at the helm in Indianapolis last season he produced the WR13 on a points-per-game basis in Michael Pittman Jr. With better quarterback play we should expect some better consistency from Adams this season.

Round 3

  1. Sam LaPorta, TE1, DET
  2. Stefon Diggs, WR17, HOU
  3. Travis Etienne, RB9, JAX
  4. Mike Evans, WR18, TB
  5. Josh Jacobs, RB10, GB
  6. Deebo Samuel, WR19, SF
  7. DeVonta Smith, WR20, PHI
  8. Cooper Kupp, WR21, LAR
  9. Drake London, WR22, ATL
  10. James Cook, RB11, BUF
  11. D.K. Metcalf, WR23, SEA
  12. Josh Allen, QB1, BUF

We had the first tight end and first quarterback go in Round 3 of this draft. Sam LaPorta was the first tight end off the board, over Travis Kelce. Kelce not being the first TE off the board is strange to see.

Sam LaPorta is a very good fantasy player but he isn't the number one target on his team, like I still believe Travis Kelce is for the Chiefs. Amon-Ra St. Brown eats up so many targets, it is hard for me to see LaPorta having that type of ceiling. But I do not hate the pick if Jordan feels that Kelce is over that age cliff and wants to be a year ahead of the curve.

Josh Allen is also the consensus QB1 in drafts, but I may be on the outside looking in at this one. I am fully on board with a Patrick Mahomes bounceback with them retooling the offensive line and wide receiver room. I think I will have Mahomes as my QB1 as the season moves on.

My Round 3 Pick

I am banking on a bounce back myself with this pick of Cooper Kupp. Everyone is down on Cooper Kupp heading into this season with the emergence of Puka Nacua. However, I think with Cooper Kupp healthy and a healthy Matthew Stafford there are enough targets to go around for both of them.

Similar to how Cooper Kupps and Robert Woods thrived together for a few years. Kupp may not have the ceiling of old, but being able to get him as a low-end WR2 I am all in on that.

Round 4

  1. Keenan Allen, WR24, LAC
  2. Travis Kelce, TE2, KC
  3. Jalen Hurts, QB2, PHI
  4. Malik Nabers, WR25, NYG
  5. Zay Flowers, WR26, BAL
  6. Patrick Mahomes, QB3, KC
  7. Lamar Jackson, QB4, BAL
  8. Rashee Rice, WR27, KC
  9. Tee Higgins, WR28, CIN
  10. Derrick Henry, RB12, BAL
  11. Mark Andrews, TE3, BAL
  12. Rachaad White, RB13, TB

We saw a small quarterback run go in round four with Jalen Hurts, Patrick Mahomes, and Lamar Jackson all going off the board. That surprised me with a group of analysts doing this mock, but the positional advantage at the quarterback position helps more than ever before.

Rashee Rice going as early as he did with the legal following him this offseason, was shocking. That will be interesting to see how that changes moving forward.

Another thing that has caught my eye is the fact that we are through four rounds of this draft and only 13 running backs are off the board. That was unheard of going back a few years in the fantasy football realm, but I am not opposed to the change.

My Round 4 Pick

After going with two veteran wide receivers in Davante Adams and Cooper Kupp, who each project to have solid floor, I thought it was time for a little upside by going with Zay Flowers.

Flowers possesses a big play upside every time he touches the ball in this Ravens offense, and I only expect his role in this offense to grow because of the way he finished. Flowers finished as a top 13 wide receiver in four out of the last five weeks of the fantasy season, that is big time stuff from a rookie.

Round 5

  1. Tank Dell, WR29, HOU
  2. Joe Burrow, QB5, CIN
  3. Trey McBride, TE4, ARI
  4. Anthony Richardson, QB6, IND
  5. Isiah Pacheco, RB14, KC
  6. Aaron Jones, RB15, MIN
  7. Rome Odunze, WR30, CHI
  8. George Pickens, WR31, PIT
  9. Alvin Kamara, RB16, NO
  10. Dalton Kincaid, TE5, BUF
  11. C.J. Stroud, QB6, HOU
  12. Amari Cooper, WR32, CLE

The surprise of this round was Anthony Richardson going as the QB off the board. I feel like more proven guys like C.J. Stroud, Kyler Murray and Dak Prescott all still on the board John could have waited. I do not hate the pick by any means because of the rushing upside AR possesses, but he also hasn't shown the ability to stay healthy as he only played four games before going down with a shoulder injury.

Another interesting pick was rookie Rome Odunze going off as WR30 by Kacey Kasem. I love Rome as a prospect but his landing spot in Chicago with two other alpha wide receivers in Keenan Allen and DJ Moore may make it difficult to return WR30 value. I love the future outlook for Odunze with Allen on the last year of his deal, but for redraft this year, I will be looking the other way.

My Round 5 Pick

My thought process here going with George Pickens was to just send it. Pickens is the clear-cut alpha wide receiver on this Steelers team with Diontae Johnson moving on to Carolina. He also will be playing with the best quarterback of his career whether it be Russell Wilson or Justin Fields.

Pickens led the league in yards per reception last season at 18.1 making him a big play waiting to happen. Plus both Russell Wilson and Justin Fields both excel at throwing the deep ball. Pickens has a chance to smash WR31 value this season.

Round 6

  1. Kyle Pitts, TE6, ATL
  2. Terry Mclaurin, WR33, WAS
  3. Jayden Reed, WR34, GB
  4. Najee Harris, RB17, PIT
  5. Kenneth Walker, RB18, SEA
  6. Tyjae Spears, RB19, TENN
  7. Chris Godwin, WR35, TB
  8. George Kittle, TE7, SF
  9. Evan Engram, TE8, JAX
  10. Christian Kirk, WR36, JAX
  11. Calvin Ridley, WR37, TEN
  12. Jordan Addison, WR38, MIN

We saw three tight ends go off the board in round six was a bit earlier than I anticipated. Apparently, we are back in with Kyle Pitts as Taylor led the round off by taking him ahead of George Kittle and Evan Engram. The improved quarterback play will help him, but I will still be taking George Kittle ahead of Kyle Pitts this draft season, but I see the upside with the pick

One more interesting pick was Tyjae Spears going as the RB16 off the board ahead of his running mate Tony Pollard. Kacey ended up getting Pollard the next round, so it ended up working out but I would expect Tony Pollard to go ahead of Tyjae Spears in most drafts.

My Round 6 Pick

I usually would have waited a bit longer for a running back and either picked a quarterback or another wide receiver, but I didn't want the chance of missing the running back run. I was happy that I ended up doing that because six running backs came off the board before I got to pick again.

Rounds 7-15 Recap

We finally saw a real run of running backs in the seventh round with six going off the board. With the wide receivers going early and often I felt it made the player pool dry up pretty quickly. That had me drafting my tight end T.J. Hockenson in the eighth round, and my quarterback Jordan Love in the 10th. Looking back at it and seeing the value in that position that fell, I would have waited.

Then in round 15 was the run of defenses going off the board as 11 defenses were selected in the last round. That should be the normal thing in drafts. But we all have that one guy in our draft who takes a defense in the 10th round every year.

RB/WR Final Thoughts

As I mentioned above, we waited until round seven to see a real running back run when five went off the board. With only 19 running backs going in the first six rounds of the draft, there are some tremendous values at that position later in drafts. Some of my favorite running back picks of the draft include Joe Mixon at the 7.03, D'Andre Swift at the 8.03, and Zack Moss at the 9.10.

My thoughts on the wide receiver position are simple, if you do not draft a wide receiver with one of your first two picks, you are severely behind the eight-ball at that position. 23 wide receivers going in the first three rounds of the wild draft. Some of the value options that I liked that went later in the draft included Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs each going in the WR40 range and Curtis Samuel falling late into the 11th round.

QB/TE Final Thoughts

At the quarterback position, I thought some value still fell through the cracks. Dak Prescott who lost his starting running back to free agency went off the board in the 9th round. Keith was able to scoop him up as the QB9 when he finished as QB3 last season. I would expect Dak to have to throw more this season with the defense getting worse.

Coming out of this draft, I think it is safe to say that if you do not get a top 4-5 quarterbacks and tight ends early at each position, you can wait at that position. We had 5 owners decide to wait until after round 10 to take a QB. They ended up with guys like Justin Herbert, Jordan Love, Brock Purdy, and Jared Goff. Even at the tight end position, there seems to be more depth than ever. Guys like Jake Ferguson, TJ Hockenson, Brock Bowers, Dallas Goedert, and Dalton Schultz all going in rounds 8-10.

I hope you enjoyed this fantasy football PPR redraft mock draft write-up. Hopefully, it helped you get back into the swing of things as it is never too early to get a leg up on your competition!
