As we inch toward the new season, the ever-changing NFL landscape has player fantasy football values constantly on the move. Whether you’re used to the dynasty platform or are still learning the rules, let’s dive into the latest dynasty value of Tennessee Titans QB Will Levis.
Will Levis’ Dynasty Outlook and Value
The leadup to and day of the 2023 NFL Draft had to be a whirlwind of emotions for Levis. At one point, he was the betting favorite to be the second overall pick. Instead, he fell out of the first round entirely. In three hours, Levis went from a surefire top-six rookie pick in Superflex leagues to a guy whose entire career was suddenly a question mark.
Levis’ ascent was a bit unexpected. He redshirted his freshman year at Penn State and then spent two years as a backup. It wasn’t until he transferred to Kentucky that he got a chance to start and quickly climbed the ranks of draft boards.
In his two years at Kentucky, Levis threw for just 218 yards a game. In 24 games, he threw 43 touchdowns against 23 interceptions, completing just under 66% of his passes.
Levis has great size and is a very good athlete. While I wouldn’t consider him a rushing quarterback, he’s mobile enough. In his first year at Kentucky, Levis carried the ball 107 times for 376 yards and nine touchdowns. There’s undoubtedly serious upside here if he can put it all together.
The concern is that Levis was always an overrated prospect propped up by a league desperate for an injection of quality quarterbacks. I can’t remember a time where the QB situation in the NFL was this grim.
Levis spent five years at college and is already 24 years old as a rookie. The good news is, if he was going to fall to the second round, landing in Tennessee was about as good as it gets.
Ryan Tannehill is almost certainly entering his final season with the Titans. Given his performance the past two years, and the likelihood the Titans aren’t very good this season, we may very well see Levis get a chance to make starts as a rookie. At the very least, he should be considered the presumptive favorite to be the Titans’ Week 1 starting quarterback in 2024.
Will Levis’ Fantasy Ranking
In single quarterback dynasty leagues, Levis may not even be worth rostering outside of deeper leagues. The track record for non-first-round quarterbacks is not particularly good.
In Superflex leagues, Levis is far more of a priority because of how valuable starting quarterbacks are. Even knowing he’s not a Week 1 starter as a rookie, Levis is certainly going to get a chance at some point within his first two seasons in the NFL. That, alone, gives him value.
Levis currently checks in at 1.11 in our dynasty Superflex rookie rankings. He’s justifiably fallen well below the big three of Anthony Richardson, Bryce Young, and C.J. Stroud. With those three, you’re getting a guaranteed starter. Levis requires some patience and the hope that he develops into a better passer than he was at college.
I’m not a fan of Levis. And no, it has nothing to do with how he eats bananas or takes his coffee. If you need a quarterback, there are only so many worthwhile options — you have to take the shot if the situation calls for it. But in rookie drafts and dynasty startup drafts, Levis is not someone I’m looking to draft.
