Attack the 2024 Rookie Draft: 1.11

The pick is in! Unlike most drafts, the 2024 1.11 offers many options including: quarterback, running back, or wide receiver. Which area should you attack? @dynastydadmike helps you with your 1.11 selection

In this series for the Dynasty Nerds, the staff will take a look at rookie draft pick-by-pick and evaluate who they would select. Each pick will take into account other players on the board, how the team build can affect the pick and possibly change the pick, and also the trade value of the pick.

We are operating under the assumption that the league is a SuperFlex league with a tight end-premium scoring format.

The 1.11 Pick

With pick 1.11 in this rookie draft, I selected running back Jonathon Brooks. Brooks was selected in the second round of the NFL draft by the Carolina Panthers and was the first running back taken off the board.

Many consider Brooks the best running back in the class, and Carolina agreed, trading up in the second round to select him. Brooks had all the makings to be a first-round draft pick if not for a torn ACL late in the college season. Early reports say he will be ready to go for training camp.

While the backfield seems crowded with Chuba Hubbard and Miles Sanders, head coach Dave Canales is on record stating, “Every team that I have been on, we used all of our running backs at different points because it’s just such a violent position. We look for those players who can handle that. But we are going to run the ball. It’s going to be a non-negotiable for us. This gives us a real chance to add another good runner to the mix.”

Who Else S”ould You Consider?

It is a rare luxury to grab the best RB in the draft this late in your rookie drafts. If you are picking at the 1.11, you traded into that pick, or your team competed for a championship title. More than likely, you have a very solid team.

Other options to consider would be fellow RB Trey Benson, who also went to a solid landing spot in Arizona behind 29-year-old James Conner. You could also look to add to your quarterback room with Bo Nix still likely on the board. If you need a wide receiver, look to grab Chargers wide receiver Ladd McConkey.

Should You Trade Away or Keep 1.11?

If you are debating whether you should keep or trade away this pick, here is the current crop of players that the pick currently holds in SuperFlex/Tight End Premium leagues. These values are based on the Dynasty Nerds’ ranks.

In the current Nerds ranks, Brooks is valued at player 68 overall and RB12. That is good value for Brooks, with players such as Rashee Rice, Zay Flowers, and Jordan Addison all in the same value range. I would prefer Brooks over all those options. Also, with the uncertainty of the Kirk Cousins/Atlanta situation, that could be another avenue that you explore.

The Final Word

As you can see, this draft class is of tremendous value compared to previous years. It is a pick-your-flavor of whatever you desire, and good luck winning your 2024 championships!
