2024 Fantasy Football Rookie Wide Receiver Rankings

The 2024 NFL Draft is in the books. Now is the fun part. The Summer content-wise will mostly be dedicated to fantasy football and those 2024 rookie rankings are vital towards your drafting success. Today we’re doing the wide receiver rankings so enjoy them.

In years past I used to just do a combination of redraft and dynasty. This year I’m going to separate them. Probably better to do it this way. Here are the VSM 2024 Fantasy Football Rookie Wide Receiver Rankings!

Redraft:

5: Xavier Worthy (Chiefs)

Rashee Rice is probably going to be suspended. Travis Kelce is 35 in October. The comp for Worthy has been DeSean Jackson. Andy Reid had both players. Even if the points come in inconsistent bunches, Worthy should have value even this year.

4: Ladd McConkey (Chargers)

Mike Williams and Keenan Allen are both gone. There’s a billion vacated targets up for grabs. I’ve seen people call McConkey just a slot receiver. It’s not really accurate. McConkey lined up in the slot just 26.3% for Georgia. Certainly the slot might be his best spot but he can do more than just that. He’s too good at getting open. We saw that at the Senior Bowl. Even if the Chargers aren’t super pass happy, McConkey should be the WR1 there with value right away.

3: Malik Nabers (Giants)

Obviously, a talented player. I hate that he has to deal with Daniel Jones. Still, the Giants don’t really have anyone. He was taken high for a reason and is going to see the ball a bunch. Would expect his career to be very similar to Odell Beckham. Electric early but fades later in his career.

2: Keon Coleman (Bills)

The quarterback makes the receiver. It’s never the other way around. I get Josh Allen. Gabe Davis is terrible and he had seven touchdowns basically every single year with Allen. Coleman might get ten this year and he’s only 20 just scratching the surface. It’s a perfect fit that should prove to be fantasy fruitful this year.

1: Marvin Harrison Jr. (Cardinals)

Dude is a freak. Would expect him to be good right away. DeAndre Hopkins put up big numbers as the number one with Kyler Murray. As a rookie, could he get around the 1,000 yard mark? The looks should be there.

Dynasty:

10: Troy Franklin (Broncos)

Wasn’t surprised he went in the 4th round. A really productive player at Oregon but someone that also had his warts. He’s just limited by how explosive he is in short area. I love the landing spot though and his connection with Bo Nix feels like it matters. Should be someone that’s really good in those YAC situations and can really stretch the field.

9: Xavier Legette (Panthers)

One year wonder but he’s talented in the freaky way. Can peep my profile on him here. Actually think he’s probably the best guy in Carolina. It’s just also hard to trust the landing spot. However, I do actually have some hope for Dave Canales. He got a lot out of Baker Mayfield.

8: Brian Thomas Jr. (Jaguars)

Another one year wonder. Did nothing at LSU for a long time. Height, weight, speed, stuff is stupid in a good way. Just think this one is going to take time. Here’s the profile on Thomas if you’re itching for it.

7: AD Mitchell (Colts)

I like AD Mitchell but I’m not convinced the landing spot here is great. Yes, Mitchell is better than Alec Pierce. I’m fully aware of that. However, Anthony Richardson is going to take off and run a lot. Plus, this offense already has Michael Pittman and Josh Downs. Last year Pierce saw just 65 targets despite playing 95% of snaps. With what the Colts are building, I’m skeptical Mitchell can reach a high ceiling for a long time.

6: Xavier Worthy (Chiefs)

Talked about it already in the redraft section. Long term I’d drop him a tad only because of the size and injury factor. I’m in here but there are concerns. A lot of times at Texas he struggled catching the football. It’s undeniable if you watch the games. Not sure he’s ever going to be a guy that truly carries the offense on his own. Lineup leagues, good luck figuring out when he’s going to pop off too.

5: Ladd McConkey (Chargers)

Love the landing spot long term. Jim Harbaugh will get the most out of him. I want you to think about this. He’s the one guy who’s spent the last few years at the college game. He’s seen these guys up close and personal coaching against a lot of them. The guy he wanted was Ladd McConkey and traded up for him. He’s going to be really good.

4: Malik Nabers (Giants)

You know my thoughts here. I have him compared to a Stefon Diggs type of player. Not sure that’s worth the 6th pick in a draft but that’s what the Giants did.

3: Rome Odunze (Bears)

You will notice I didn’t have him ranked in the redraft section. I’m just telling you right now that’s going to happen. How many snaps is the guy going to play? Tell me? It’s just not happening this year unless Keenan Allen or DJ Moore goes down. Long term, yeah, if you’ve read the site you know I like the player.

2: Keon Coleman (Bills)

Did you know his cousin is CeeDee Lamb? Call me crazy but I think they’re kinda similar. Big bodies who are red zone threats while having a unique ability to win in the middle of the field while also being YAC monsters. The smart people know how this is going to go. He’s a 20-year-old basketball player who doesn’t know what he’s doing but was so stupid talented that Florida State used him as their primary punt returner. The dumb people will tell you he’s not a good enough route runner to be an X receiver. Maybe that’s true today but it won’t be long term.

I tell you this all the time. Evaluate the evaluator. All of the people that disagree with me, are you willing to bet that you’re better at evaluating receivers than I am? Go find me evidence that you can. I’ll wait while you do that.

1: Marvin Harrison Jr. (Cardinals)

His dad is a Hall of Famer. Marvin Jr. is faster and 6-foot-4 with the same route running ability. Alien. He should be the first pick in every draft.
