Malik Nabers

May 8, 2024

There will be many more 2024 Fantasy Football Rankings and features in the late spring and summer, including tons of 2024 Fantasy Football Mock Drafts, Player Rankings, Sleepers and Busts. I’ll also have an extensive 2024 NFL Fantasy Football Preseason Stock Report.

2024 Fantasy Football Rookie Rankings: Re-Draft

Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Cardinals

Marvin Harrison Jr. compares to CeeDee Lamb. He’ll be a great fantasy receiver for years to come, especially in the future when he’s paired with a quarterback who doesn’t run as much.

Malik Nabers, WR, Giants

Daniel Jones has never had a No. 1 receiver, so Malik Nabers will greatly out-produce every receiver Jones has ever had at his disposal. Nabers figures to post big numbers, even as a rookie.

Caleb Williams, QB, Bears

Has any other No. 1 overall pick possessed the sort of incredible supporting cast Caleb Williams will be surrounded with in his rookie year? D.J. Moore, Keenan Allen, Rome Odunze, and Cole Kmet will help Williams elude many of the growing pains associated with being a rookie quarterback.

Jayden Daniels, QB, Redskins

Jayden Daniels doesn’t have the same sort of supporting cast Caleb Williams possesses in Chicago, but his rushing ability makes him an excellent fantasy option as a rookie.

Brock Bowers, TE, Raiders

Brock Bowers has a special skill set for a tight end. Gardner Minshew, with his limited arm strength, will make great use of the rookie tight end.

Rome Odunze, WR, Bears

Rome Odunze is a talented receiver, but landed in a bad short-term situation because he’ll be in a very crowded Bears receiving room.

Xavier Worthy, WR, Chiefs

Xavier Worthy will provide Patrick Mahomes with a very speedy, downfield threat. There’s great potential here, but Worthy could take some time to develop.

Keon Coleman, WR, Bills

Keon Coleman will have a chance to be a big producer right away in Buffalo’s offense. Despite being a second-round pick, he should be ranked highly.

Ladd McConkey, WR, Chargers

Ladd McConkey will be given an opportunity to be a big producer with Justin Herbert as Keenan Allen’s replacement.

Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, Patriots

Ja’Lynn Polk won’t be playing in an exciting offense, but he’ll see tons of usage as one of the few talented threats on the team.

Drake Maye, QB, Patriotss

Drake Maye has high long-term upside as both a passer and a runner, but he’s a bit raw at the moment and doesn’t have a very good supporting cast.

Brian Thomas, WR, Jaguars

Brian Thomas is a raw receiver, but has high upside. He’ll have to battle lots of players for targets and snaps right away.

Xavier Legette, WR, Panthers

Xavier Legette is a talented receiver, but he’s in a bad quarterbacking situation in Carolina.

Ricky Pearsall, WR, 49ers

Ricky Pearsall will need one of Deebo Samuel or Brandon Aiyuk to be traded in order to be relevant this year. There’s major long-term potential here, obviously.

Roman Wilson, WR, Steelers

Could Roman Wilson be the next Steelers second-day receiver to be a great producer? Wilson will have an opportunity as a rookie with Diontae Johnson gone.

Adonai Mitchell, WR, Colts

Adonai Mitchell slipped in the draft because of off-the-field concerns. It’s not ideal that his quarterback is a run-first player.

Malachi Corley, WR, Jets

Malachi Corley compares favorably to Deebo Samuel. His upside is high with Aaron Rodgers being his quarterback.

J.J. McCarthy, QB, Vikings

J.J. McCarthy has two great receivers at his disposal, but has low upside, much like Mac Jones.

Bo Nix, QB, Broncos

Bo Nix looks to be the next Christian Ponder or Blaine Gabbert, i.e., a second-round quarterback prospect pushed to the first round because of a team being desperate for a quarterback.

Jonathon Brooks, RB, Panthers

Jonathon Brooks is a talented running back, but he’s coming off a torn ACL, so he’s not a recommended option in 2024. He has great long-term upside, however.

Trey Benson, RB, Cardinals

Trey Benson is a talented back who could have a chance to have a big workload in 2024 if James Conner gets hurt.

Jaylen Wright, RB, Dolphins

Miami traded next year’s third-round pick for Jaylen Wright. The explosive back will be stuck in a crowded depth chart to start his career, but given what Miami traded, the coaching staff figures to have big plans for him.

Ray Davis, RB, Bills

There isn’t much behind James Cook on Buffalo’s roster, so he’ll have opportunities as a rookie to complement Cook.

Tyrone Tracy, RB, Giants

Tyrone Tracy may become the starting running back for the Giants this season, given the lack of talent at the position.

Blake Corum, RB, Rams

It’s a shame that Blake Corum will be irrelevant unless Kyren Williams gets injured. If last year was any indication, however, Corum will have some opportunities when Williams is hurt.

Jermaine Burton, WR, Bengals

Jermaine Burton will have a chance to be productive as a rookie if Tee Higgins is traded.

Troy Franklin, WR, Broncos

There’s some chatter about Courtland Sutton being traded. Jerry Jeudy is gone, so if Sutton leaves, Troy Franklin will have a great chance to contribute early in his career.

Devontez Walker, WR, Ravens

Devontez Walker will be replacing Odell Beckham Jr. He’s just a fourth-round rookie, but given the lack of receiving depth on the roster, Walker could see playing time immediately.

Javon Baker, WR, Patriots

Baker is just a fourth-round rookie, but given the lack of receiving weapons on New England’s roster, he could see significant snaps right away.

MarShawn Lloyd, RB, Packers

Audric Estime, RB, Broncos

Kimani Vidal, RB, Chargers

Dylan Laube, RB, Raiders

Bucky Irving, RB, Buccaneers

Will Shipley, RB, Eagles

Ben Sinnott, TE, Redskins
