2024 NFL Draft: Rookies Who Landed in the Worst Situations for Dynasty Leagues

The 2024 NFL Draft had everything fantasy football degenerates have grown to love and look forward to. A tidy pile of offensive players went early. Of the 32 picks in round one, 23 were offensive players, including 14 straight to open the draft.

In the world of dynasty fantasy football, statistically speaking, not all of those players will return the investment of their cost. Situation and landing spot are factors we need to take into consideration before investing our own draft picks on players simply based on how high they went in the draft. There are a lot more Jalen Reagors out there than there are Puka Nacuas.

Let’s examine a few rookies who landed in suboptimal situations for dynasty football purposes.

Michael Penix Jr, QB ATL

The first seven picks of the draft went more or less as expected. Then the Falcons sauntered in from stage left with the most bizarre pick of the draft by selecting Penix at eight overall. Drafting a 23-year-old quarterback to sit behind Kirk Cousins, whom they just signed to a four-year 180 million dollar deal, seems like a waste of a premium draft pick. Not to mention the almost certain discord it can create in the locker room for their new veteran signal-caller.
