2024 Fantasy Football Mock Draft 1.0: 10-Team, 0.5 PPR


We are still a few months away from the NFL season, but fantasy football preparations are already rolling for everyone reading this. On every other Friday leading up to the season, we will have a fantasy football mock draft for various scoring formats and league sizes—starting with a 10-team, 0.5 PPR league.

 

Round 1

1.01: Christian McCaffrey, SF RB

1.02: Ja’Marr Chase, CIN WR

1.03: CeeDee Lamb, DAL WR

1.04: Tyreek Hill, MIA WR

1.05: Justin Jefferson, MIN WR

1.06: Breece Hall, NYJ RB

1.07: Bijan Robinson, ATL RB

1.08: Jahmyr Gibbs, DET RB

1.09: Amon-Ra St. Brown, DET WR

1.10: Jonathan Taylor, IND RB

 

Thoughts: Four wideouts went after presumptive No. 1 overall pick Christian McCaffrey, and I’m happy to get the top one in the Fantasy Consigliere rankings with Lamb going behind Ja’Marr Chase.

 

Round 2

2.01: Garrett Wilson, NYJ WR

2.02: A.J. Brown, PHI WR

2.03: Derrick Henry, BAL RB

2.04: Saquon Barkley, PHI RB

2.05: Puka Nacua, LAR WR

2.06: Kyren Williams, LAR RB

2.07: Brandon Aiyuk, SF WR

2.08: Travis Etienne Jr., JAX RB

2.09: Rachaad White, TB RB

2.10: Josh Allen, BUF QB

 

Thoughts: Etienne finished as the overall RB3 last year, and he gives me an upside option at running back after not taking one in Round 1.

 

Round 3

3.01: Mike Evans, TB WR

3.02: Michael Pittman Jr., IND WR

3.03: Josh Jacobs, GB RB

3.04: Sam LaPorta, DET TE

3.05: De’Von Achane, MIA RB

3.06: Marvin Harrison Jr., ARI WR

3.07: Joe Mixon, HOU RB

3.08: Chris Olave, NO WR

3.09: Alvin Kamara, NO RB

3.10: Davante Adams, LV WR

 

Thoughts: It was tempting to go with a quarterback here, but Jacobs is another potential RB1 option to pair with Etienne—giving me a very strong roster foundation.

 

Round 4

4.01: Jalen Hurts, PHI QB

4.02: Isiah Pacheco, KC RB

4.03: Travis Kelce, KC TE

4.04: Drake London, ATL WR

4.05: James Cook, BUF RB

4.06: Deebo Samuel, SF WR

4.07: Patrick Mahomes, KC QB

4.08: Lamar Jackson, BAL QB

4.09: Mark Andrews, BAL TE

4.10: DJ Moore, CHI WR

 

Thoughts: Jackson is the last of the top-tier quarterbacks, so I’m fortunate to get him, and it was an easy choice with a few wide receivers I have my eye on following a short turnaround.

 

Round 5

5.01: Kenneth Walker III, SEA RB

5.02: Rhamondre Stevenson, NE RB

5.03: Jaylen Waddle, MIA WR

5.04: Aaron Jones, MIN RB

5.05: David Montgomery, DET RB

5.06: Nico Collins, HOU WR

5.07: Trey McBride, ARI TE

5.08: Cooper Kupp, LAR WR

5.09: D’Andre Swift, CHI RB

5.10: Najee Harris, PIT RB

 

Thoughts: This was not an easy decision, as a few wideouts are tiered together that are still on the board, but I felt best about Waddle with the current structure of my roster.

 

Round 6

6.01: Tony Pollard, DAL RB

6.02: Joe Burrow, CIN QB

6.03: Nick Chubb, CLE RB

6.04: DK Metcalf, SEA WR

6.05: C.J. Stroud, HOU QB

6.06: Anthon Richardson, IND QB

6.07: Zamir White, LV RB

6.08: DeVonta Smith, PHI WR

6.09: Amari Cooper, CLE WR

6.10: James Conner, ARI RB

 

Thoughts: Smith was one of the options I considered with my previous pick, so to get him in Round 6 as my FLEX is a home run.

 

Round 7

7.01: Stefon Diggs, HOU WR

7.02: Kyler Murray, ARI QB

7.03: Kyle Pitts, ATL TE

7.04: Rashee Rice, KC WR

7.05: Javonte Williams, DEN RB

7.06: Raheem Mostert, MIA RB

7.07: Jordan Love, GB QB

7.08: Dak Prescott, DAL QB

7.09: Zay Flowers, BAL WR

7.10: Malik Nabers, NYG WR

 

Thoughts: I sense a drop off at running back is coming, but I didn’t want to take the risk of there being a run at tight end—as Pitts’ upside gives me a great chance of having a powerhouse starting lineup, which is now set.

 

Round 8

8.01: Tee Higgins, CIN WR

8.02: Ladd McConkey, LAC WR

8.03: Keenan Allen, CHI WR

8.04: Tank Dell, HOU WR

8.05: Christian Kirk, JAX WR

8.06: George Pickens, PIT WR

8.07: Jaylen Warren, PIT RB

8.08: Brian Robinson Jr., WAS RB

8.09: Devin Singletary, NYG RB

8.10: Gus Edwards, LAC RB

 

Thoughts: The stretch of running backs coming off the board didn’t happen, so I’m able to add Robinson as a very solid RB3 option—though it looks like I wouldn’t have been able to wait at tight end with a run there not happening either.

 

Round 9

9.01: Terry McLaurin, WAS WR

9.02: Trey Benson, ARI RB

9.03: Dalton Kincaid, BUF TE

9.04: Marquise Brown, KC WR

9.05: Calvin Ridley, TEN WR

9.06: Jayden Reed, GB WR

9.07: Jordan Addison, MIN WR

9.08: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, SEA WR

9.09: Tyjae Spears, TEN RB

9.10: Jonathon Brooks, CAR RB

 

Thoughts: Another tight end was just too good of a value to pass up, and Kincaid can easily be used in the FLEX spot when needed (his consistency gave him the edge over George Kittle).

 

Round 10

10.01: Austin Ekeler, WAS RB

10.02: Diontae Johnson, CAR WR

10.03: Zack Moss, CIN RB

10.04: Jerome Ford, CLE RB

10.05: Chris Godwin, TB WR

10.06: Rome Odunze, CHI WR

10.07: Xavier Worthy, KC WR

10.08: Ezekiel Elliott, DAL RB

10.09: Chase Brown, CIN RB

10.10: DeAndre Hopkins, TEN WR

 

Thoughts: Elliott is a similar pick to Brian Robinson in that he should be a stable option with a weekly role for Dallas, and I like how the roster looks with insurance policies at running back.

 

Round 11

11.01: Christian Watson, GB WR

11.02: Brian Thomas Jr., JAX WR

11.03: George Kittle, SF TE

11.04: Zach Charbonnet, SEA RB

11.05: Courtland Sutton, DEN WR

11.06: Tyler Lockett, SEA WR

11.07: Gabe Davis, JAX WR

11.08: Jameson Williams, DET WR

11.09: Adonai Mitchell, IND WR

11.10: J.K. Dobbins, LAC RB

 

Thoughts: I know he’s my third tight end, but Kittle was too big of a steal at this point, as he was an option I considered when I took Kyle Pitts; I’d rather get the value for myself than have an opponent get a major value.

 

Round 12

12.01: Keon Coleman, BUF WR

12.02: Chuba Hubbard, CAR RB

12.03: Justin Herbert, LAC QB

12.04: Jayden Daniels, WAS QB

12.05: Antonio Gibson, NE RB

12.06: Jakobi Meyers, LV WR

12.07: Blake Corum, LAR RB

12.08: Mike Williams, NYJ WR

12.09: Tua Tagovailoa, MIA QB

12.10: Romeo Doubs, GB WR

 

Thoughts: The upside of Williams is well worth taking in Round 12, and he’s a tremendous lottery ticket with my top three set at the position.

 

Round 13

13.01: Jake Ferguson, DAL TE

13.02: Roschon Johnson, CHI RB

13.03: Jerry Jeudy, CLE WR

13.04: Ty Chandler, MIN RB

13.05: Evan Engram, JAX TE

13.06: David Njoku, CLE TE

13.07: Jaleel McLaughlin, DEN RB

13.08: Rico Dowdle, DAL RB

13.09: Brock Bowers, LV TE

13.10: T.J. Hockenson, MIN TE

 

Thoughts: The best values on the board continue to be at tight end, but I wasn’t about to quadruple down, so Jeudy is the choice after Cleveland traded for him and gave a three-year, $52.5-million extension.

 

Round 14

14.01: Dallas Goedert, PHI TE

14.02: Cole Kmet, CHI TE

14.03: Quentin Johnston, LAC WR

14.04: Jermaine Burton, CIN WR

14.05: Hunter Henry, NE TE

14.06: Khalil Herbert, CHI RB

14.07: Tyler Allgeier, ATL RB

14.08: Brock Purdy, SF QB

14.09: Xavier Legette, CAR WR

14.10: MarShawn Lloyd, GB RB

 

Thoughts: Purdy is a cheap bench stack with George Kittle, and the pairing can be a valuable trade package at some point as something to keep in mind.

 

Round 15

15.01: Ravens D/ST

15.02: 49ers D/ST

15.03: Cowboys D/ST

15.04: Browns D/ST

15.05: Jets D/ST

15.06: Justin Tucker, BAL K

15.07: Tyler Bass, BUF K

15.08: Brandon Aubrey, DAL K

15.09: Chiefs D/ST

15.10: Steelers D/ST

 

Round 16

16.01: Ka’imi Fairbairn, HOU K

16.02: Harrison Butker, KC K

16.03: Dolphins D/ST

16.04: Bills D/ST

16.05: Eagles D/ST

16.06: Jason Sanders, MIA K

16.07: Jake Elliott, PHI K

16.08: Jake Moody, SF K

16.09: Matt Gay, IND K

16.10: Younghoe Koo, ATL K
