    2024 Redraft Mock Draft Superflex Non-PPR: Anthony Richardson, Joe Burrow, and C.J. Stroud All See First-Round Draft Capital

    Given the inflated fantasy value of QBs in a Superflex format, where did Anthony Richardson and C.J. Stroud land in this 2024 Superflex non-PPR mock draft?

    Superflex formats quickly becoming more popular while non-PPR leagues are quickly becoming a things of the fantasy football past.

    So what happens you when combine those two formats to conduct a mock draft heading into the 2024 NFL season? Well, let’s take a closer look at the results where quarterbacks flew off the board.

    2024 Redraft Mock Draft in a Non-PPR Superflex Format

    1.01) Christian McCaffrey, RB, San Francisco 49ers

    In full-PPR formats, the discussion can certainly become a bit more of a debate as to who the 1.01 overall pick should be. In Superflex non-PPR leagues, I still don’t see a compelling enough argument for anyone other than San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey.

    McCaffrey’s 2,023 total yards and 21 touchdowns from scrimmage made him the top Flex scoring player by a margin of 56.1 fantasy points in 2023.

    Outside of him approaching the age cliff, there is nothing about his performance or situation that suggests McCaffrey shouldn’t be the top overall selection in fantasy drafts.

    1.02) Josh Allen, QB, Buffalo Bills

    The loss of his two leading receivers doesn’t change the fact we have seen nothing short of fantasy greatness from Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen. The results quite literally speak for themselves.

    Fantasy Finishes Since 2020

    • 2023: QB1 (4,830 total yards & 44 total TDs)
    • 2022: QB2 (5,092 total yards & 42 total TDs)
    • 2021: QB1 (5,170 total yards & 42 total TDs)
    • 2020: QB1 (4,965 total yards & 45 total TDs)

    If Allen throwing to the likes of Dalton Kincaid, Khalil Shakir, Curtis Samuel, and Keon Coleman is enough to scare you from investing this type of draft capital in the superstar QB, that is fine. Feel free to take any other signal-caller that fits your fancy.

    Yet, Allen rushing for a career-high 15 TDs last proves he can produce monster fantasy numbers with his legs or his arm. He has simply been too consistently excellent to project a significant fall from fantasy stardom in 2024.

    1.03) Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs

    Taking a three-time Super Bowl champion and two-time league MVP who is arguably entering the peak of his powers at any point of a fantasy draft should never draw any criticism. Especially a format that allows you to start two quarterbacks every week.

    Patrick Mahomes had a down year in 2023 with a makeshift collection of pass catchers throughout the regular season, but he still managed to find a way to win yet another Super Bowl.

    Now add speedsters Hollywood Brown and Xavier Worthy into the mix alongside Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice, and you could have a recipe for Mahomes having another MVP season — with a potential QB1 overall finish — in 2024.

    1.04) Jalen Hurts, QB, Philadelphia Eagles

    The Philadelphia Eagles’ collapse over the back half of the season did somewhat manifest itself through QB Jalen Hurts’ struggles through the air. Over the last five games of the season, the Oklahoma product threw just four touchdowns passes to five total turnovers (four INTs and a fumble lost).

    Hurts’ 20 turnovers in 2023 was a little concerning, but in a similar fashion to Allen, his rushing production continued to anchor his fantasy excellence with 15 rushing touchdowns last year. For some additional context, he has scored 10+ rushing touchdowns in each of the last three years.

    We’ll see how the loss of center Jason Kelce impacts the fantasy football cheat code of the tush push this year, but until we see Hurts fail to be a rushing touchdown machine, he is still an excellent fantasy option in any format.

    1.05) CeeDee Lamb, WR, Dallas Cowboys

    Returning back to the non-quarterbacks in the first round leads us to the player McCaffrey outscored by 56.1 fantasy points last year — Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb — who comes off the board at No. 5 overall. Lamb’s outstanding 135 receptions for 1,749 yards and 12 TDs made him an elite fantasy performer by all metrics and has him positioned again to be the feature player in this high-powered Dallas offense.

    Lamb is in search of a new contract at the moment, which could cast a small cloud of uncertainty over his 2024 outlook. Yet, his elite target share, usage in the red zone, and outstanding overall production — with his targets, receptions, yards, and touchdowns all increasing every single year of his NFL career — make him an easy top-five pick in fantasy drafts, even in this format.

    1.06) Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens

    Lamar Jackson may have fallen short of winning the top fantasy quarterback crown of the 2023 NFL season, but watching him flourish as a passer in Todd Monken’s offensive scheme should do nothing but bolster his fantasy outlook in 2024.

    Jackson’s 3,678 passing yards and 307 completions on 457 attempts were all career highs by a wide margin, which suggests he may have room to get better with an emerging Zay Flowers and a healthy Mark Andrews.

    Did you notice I left something out? Jackson proved he still has the burst to embarrass defenders in open space with 821 rushing yards and five rushing scores last year.

    Could Derrick Henry vulture some short-yardage scores away from Jackson? Absolutely, but Gus Edwards did last year and that didn’t stop Jackson from finishing as the QB4 in fantasy football. Don’t overthink this, Jackson is still an elite fantasy option at QB in 2024.

    1.07) Anthony Richardson, QB, Indianapolis Colts

    This is where the big leap of faith is taking place in the first round. Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson looked a fantasy superstar in the making during his brief time under center his rookie year.

    Well, that is because in Richardson’s first three games played last year, he scored 17+ fantasy points in each contest with four rushing touchdowns over that span. That alone is enough to get fantasy managers very optimistic about his outlook in 2024.

    Another thing working in Richardson’s favor is the addition of an explosive outside receiver in Adonai Mitchell, who should instantly become a major upgrade over Alec Pierce in this passing attack.

    The sky is the limit for Richardson, but this admittedly feels like an aggressive projection based solely off of his small but outstanding sample size last season.

    1.08) Bijan Robinson, RB, Atlanta Falcons

    Despite quarterbacks being a huge priority in this format, you will notice more RBs coming off the board ahead of stud WRs due to the scoring format.

    The Atlanta Falcons’ offense was a confusing mess last year, with head coach Arthur Smith refusing to feature Bijan Robinson and the team getting bogged down by substandard quarterback play from Desmond Ridder. Well, both of those issues have been resolved this offseason.

    The Falcons addressed the quarterback position by signing veteran quarterback Kirk Cousins to a lucrative four-year deal and using the No. 8 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft on QB Michael Penix Jr., who could act as an insurance policy considering Cousins is still recovering from the torn Achilles he suffered last season.

    Additionally, the team hired Zac Robinson — who worked under Sean McVay as a member of the Los Angeles Rams coaching staff last year — as their new offensive coordinator, and the Rams weren’t shy about featuring Kyren Williams as their bell cow in the ground attack in 2023.

    If Robinson’s offense can generate more scoring opportunities with improved quarterback play and Bijan justifiably sees an uptick in usage — after already finishing as the RB12 in non-PPR formats last season — we could see a huge jump into the fantasy elite in 2024.

    1.09) Breece Hall, RB, New York Jets

    In full-PPR formats, Breece Hall’s league-leading 76 receptions at the RB position was nothing short of fantasy gold and led to an RB2 overall finish on one of the worst offenses in the NFL.

    Unfortunately, those receptions not accounting for anything in non-PPR formats pushed him all the way down to RB7 overall, with his 1,485 total yards and nine total TDs lowering his fantasy production a bit in a putrid offense.

    Yet, we still saw a ton of encouraging signs from Hall despite being forced to play with Zach Wilson, Trevor Siemian, and Tim Boyle under center for the majority of last year while working his way back from a torn ACL.

    If Aaron Rodgers produces even middle-of-the-road quarterback production in 2024, Hall’s TD ceiling will rise immensely, ultimately raising his upside in standard scoring formats.

    1.10) Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals

    There is no doubt that fantasy managers were thoroughly disappointed with Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow’s 2023 production. He finished as the QB25 with just 2,309 passing and 15 TDs in an injury riddled 10-game campaign last year.

    Recency bias combined with the fantasy hype surrounding some of the talented young signal-callers have some fading Burrow a bit down the fantasy board this upcoming season. However, I am not one of the voices advocating such a strategy.

    Burrow is still an MVP-caliber talent with a collection of explosive playmakers on the perimeter. Additionally, Burrow cleared 4,500 passing yards and 35 total touchdowns in each of the previous two seasons. The high floor and fantasy ceiling are still very much within the range of outcomes for one of the best young signal-callers in the league.

    1.11) C.J. Stroud, QB, Houston Texans

    When you attach a talented alpha receiver like Stefon Diggs to a quarterback who had a historic rookie year, it becomes very easy to understand why Houston Texans QB C.J. Stroud has shot up draft boards heading into 2024.

    Stroud’s 4,108 passing yards and 23 touchdowns with just five interceptions — which resulted in a QB11 finish — was actually pretty outstanding when you consider the situation he was stepping into with Nico Collins, Tank Dell, Robert Woods, and Dalton Schultz as his top options in the passing game.

    Stroud elevated this Texans offense into relevance by pushing the ball downfield with intended-air-yards-per-attempt (9.2) and tight-window throw (24) figures that were amongst the highest in the league.

    Stroud flashed a veteran-type savvy while manipulating crowded pockets and throwing with anticipation over the middle of the field. His air yards per attempt suggest he’s willing to push the ball down the field consistently, which pairs incredibly well with his 33.2 passing attempts per game.

    If Stroud’s excellent rookie year is simply foreshadowing his bright future as a star in this league, then this ranking may be a bit too low when we look back at the 2024 NFL season.

    1.12) Tyreek Hill, WR, Miami Dolphins

    It could feel like stealing to draft a player who has produced a minimum of 119 receptions for 1,700+ yards over the last two years with the final pick of the first round, but Miami Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill does have a legitimate 1.01 overall case regardless of format with his exceptional play and fit in Mike McDaniel’s offensive scheme.

    Could age begin to become a factor for a player who is renowned for his revolutionary speed, if he even loses half a step this year? Sure, but his on-field GPS metrics and elite fantasy numbers last year suggest he hasn’t lost a step yet.

    Assuming his role remains the same in this high-powered Dolphins offense, then Hill is one of the safest picks in all of fantasy football.

    2.01) Ja’Marr Chase, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

    Despite setting a career high with 100 receptions last year, Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase’s WR13 finish in non-PPR formats still feels like a major disappointment for those who spent a first-round pick in their fantasy draft on the talented receiver.

    Well, I’m willing to double down on a player like Chase, seeing as he still is as talented as any receiver in the league. Not to mention, he still has Burrow throwing him the football, and Tee Higgins’ contract situation isn’t exactly one that inspires a ton of confidence going into this upcoming season.

    After the slow start for the entire Cincy offense due to Burrow’s calf injury through the first month of the season, Chase still rattled off three performances with five+ receptions, 100+ yards, and at least one score from Weeks 5 to 10 (five games) to showcase he still has the elite upside that warrants this type of pick.

    2.02) Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings

    The greatness we’ve seen from Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson through the first three years of his career led to a $140 million dollar contract this offseason. Quite frankly, he deserves every penny. In NFL history, no player has ever compiled more receiving yards under the age of 25 than Jefferson’s 5,899.

    The problem with his 2024 outlook is the unknown level of quarterback play with either veteran Sam Darnold or rookie J.J. McCarthy set to take over under center with Cousins now in Atlanta.

    Does this mean Jefferson’s production is automatically going to fall off a cliff? Absolutely not. But could his fantasy ceiling be lowered a bit without the reliability of Cousins feeding him the football early, often, and always? Sure, it is within the range of outcomes.

    Jefferson is still in the conversation for the best WR in the NFL, but his situation does come with a bit less certainty than some of the other players listed ahead of him on this list.

    2.03) Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, Detroit Lions

    One player for which we don’t have to worry about the level of his quarterback play — or the offense’s output in general — is the Detroit Lions’ WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, who has improved in every major statistical category every year of his NFL career.

    Despite the additions of both Sam LaPorta (TE1 overall) and Jahmyr Gibbs (RB10 overall), who saw a combined 191 targets last year, St. Brown still posted a career-best season of 119 receptions for 1,515 yards and 10 TDs on 164 targets in 2023.

    The exact same cast of characters is returning for this season, which makes it difficult to project any significant reduced role for the Sun God in 2024.

    2.04) Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys

    Cowboys QB Dak Prescott continues to be a bit of a fantasy football mystery. He has been in the NFL eight years and had some exceptionally productive fantasy campaigns with two top-five finishes at the position, but he has also finished outside of the top 12 at the position on three occasions over the last six years.

    Prescott’s 4,516 passing yards and 36 TDs through the air helped the Cowboys lead the league in scoring offense last year, but some questions remain about his offensive line, running game, and weapons outside of Lamb heading into a contract year.

    In this format, Prescott has plenty of upside as your QB1, but he also brings some potential pitfalls if he can’t replicate his excellent efficiency from last year.

    2.05) Kyler Murray, QB, Arizona Cardinals

    The name Kyler Murray hasn’t exactly been talked about with much excitement in fantasy football circles after he suffered a torn ACL in the back half of the 2022 season. Yet, after returning to the starting lineup for the rebuilding Arizona Cardinals last year, Murray was the QB9 overall in fantasy football while throwing to WRs like Hollywood Brown and Greg Dortch.

    Now, Murray is more than a full year removed from his devastating knee injury and has Marvin Harrison Jr. and Trey McBride as his top targets this upcoming season. He isn’t exactly being overlooked at this price, but he still has an elite fantasy ceiling heading into 2024.

    2.06) Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Detroit Lions

    Speaking of Gibbs, he actually didn’t finish as the top-scoring fantasy back in his own backfield in non-PPR formats last year, with David Montgomery producing an RB9 finish of 1,015 yards and 13 rushing TDs in 2023. Yet, Gibbs was far more efficient, explosive, and proficient in the passing game than Montgomery last year.

    The rushing workload was much closer to a 50-50 split over the back half of the year, with Gibbs still dominating the volume in the passing game during that stretch.

    If Gibbs sees his role expand on the ground enough to slightly see more carries than Montgomery and earn some carries from inside the 5-yard line this season, then Gibbs could have an RB1 overall fantasy ceiling in 2024.

    2.07) Jonathan Taylor, RB, Indianapolis Colts

    Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor had a second consecutive weird fantasy season after a contract holdout that went public. He missed four games to start the year and dislocated his thumb in the middle of the season, disappointing managers again in 2023.

    It wasn’t all bad, though. Taylor finished very strong by scoring a rushing touchdown in his final three games while capping off his 2023 campaign with a 188-yard rushing performance in the season finale.

    Taylor is still an elite back in the NFL and could be playing in the best scoring offense of his career if his second-year quarterback elevates the unit among the elite in 2024.

    2.08) Jordan Love, QB, Green Bay Packers

    Jordan Love may still have a quite a ways to go before we start mentioning him in the same breath as Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers, but his 4,159 passing yards and 32 passing TDs helped him finish as the QB5 overall in fantasy football in his first year as the franchise quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. Pretty impressive stuff.

    Don’t overlook Love’s rushing production either. His 247 yards and four scores on the ground suggest he can give you something with his legs on occasion too.

    When you consider Love accomplished all of this with one of his best vertical threats in and out of the lineup, his rapport and pass-catchers could actually get even better this upcoming year.

    Some pitfalls exist in the form of his rough stretch from Weeks 3-9 — where Love was the QB16 overall with just 1,324 passing yards, six passing scores, and eight interceptions — but ultimately his strong finish and compliment of young ascending weapons make him a worthy pick as a QB1 to pair with Lamb on this squad.

    2.09) Kyren Williams, RB, Los Angeles Rams

    When a player is one of two names — the other being McCaffrey — that reside atop the categories of fantasy points per game and total touches per game at a season’s conclusion, then you know that’s a player worth getting excited about for fantasy football.

    Williams came out of nowhere to finish as the RB4 overall in non-PPR leagues with 1,144 rushing yards and 12 rushing TDs to go with an additional 206 yards and three more scores on 32 receptions in the passing game last season. It is worth mentioning he did this while missing five games.

    If you are scared off by the team drafting Blake Corum in the third round, I would suggest you ask yourself this question: What do you feel Corum does definitively better than Williams?

    If you have a handful of answers to that question, then don’t draft Williams here.

    My ranking makes it clear that Williams offers everything Corum does as a runner but is an exponentially better option in the passing game. That makes it hard for me to believe he is going to get Williams off the field enough to prevent him from being a top-10 fantasy back in 2024.

    2.10) Garrett Wilson, WR, New York Jets

    This ranking may seem a bit aggressive for a player who hasn’t finished higher than the WR21 in non-PPR formats over his two years in the NFL. Yet, can add a little bit of context to his production?

    We can all agree that catching passes from quarterbacks like Wilson, Siemian, and Boyle isn’t likely to help you realize your full fantasy potential, correct? Yes.

    Can we also all agree that quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a lengthy track record of helping elevate dynamic playmakers at receiver to elite top-5 fantasy producers at the position during his NFL career? Yes.

    I understand Wilson hasn’t done it yet, but let’s not pretend the potential impact of a future Hall of Fame quarterback can’t elevate his game to the next level.

    2.11) A.J. Brown, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

    It’s hard to pass on a player who has profiled as nothing short of a top-10 receiver during his two seasons with the Eagles.

    A.J. Brown’s Fantasy Production With the Philadelphia Eagles

    • 2023: 106 receptions, 1,456 yards, seven TDs (WR5)
    • 2022: 88 receptions, 1,496 yards, 11 TDs (WR6)

    Before Lamb went on his tear after Week 5, Brown was already busy rattling off six straight 130+ yard performances from Weeks 3 to 8 as the WR1 overall in fantasy football during that span.

    Brown is still in the picture for a WR1 overall fantasy season if Hurts can return to the more efficient form we saw from him as a passer in 2022.

    2.12) Brock Purdy, QB, San Francisco 49ers

    I know 49ers QB Brock Purdy is a bit of a polarizing subject, but it does feel a bit disrespectful that he is QB11 off the board in this draft.

    Purdy’s QB6 overall finish last season with 4,280 passing yards and 31 TDs lines up exactly with his fantasy production when he first took over the starting role in Week 14 of the 2022 season. Purdy was the fantasy QB6 during that span, which constituted his first five starts in the NFL.

    Regardless of your thoughts about his physical tools or lack of rushing upside, Purdy is the perfect orchestrator in an excellent fantasy situation to continue to prove his doubters wrong with another potentially great season under center for the Niners in 2024.
