2023 IDP Superflex Rookie Mock Draft 2.0

By Bob Miller (@DynastyBobFF)

 

 

The NFL Draft has passed and now it's Dynasty Draft Season. Most Dynasty owners know which direction they're going with the 1.01, however there is a lot of debate of which quarterbacks, running backs, and wide recievers go next. I'm here to give you my latest IDP Superflex Rookie Mock Draft. This is based off of the Dynasy Pros IDP Scoring System, which is used by hundreds of IDP leagues. Our scoring system is balanced, rewarding you not only for tackles, but big plays as well. You can see our scoring system here:

Now.. on with the Mock Draft.

 

1.01: Bijan Robinson, RB, Atlanta Falcons

Here’s a layup to start the draft. Bijan is the undisputed #1 pick in all formats. If you are considering taking a QB at 1.01.. trade back. You can take advantage and get a haul for Bijan. If not, smash this pick and sleep like a baby.

 

1.02: Bryce Young, QB, Carolina Panthers

Here’s where the fun begins. Anthony Richardson is getting a lot of hype, and people are buying into it by taking him at 1.02. So many out there think/hope that ARich is the next Lamar Jackson. I’ve got news for ya, he’s not. Richardson does have incredible upside, but I’m taking the safer quarterback here in Bryce Young. He’s a magician on the field and has the ability to make something out of nothing. If all goes well he could be a combination of Jalen Hurts and Russell Wilson. He has a really nice ceiling and a pretty high floor. For that reason I’m taking him as the first quarterback off the board.

 

1.03: Anthony Richardson, QB, Indianapolis Colts

Like I said, Richardson has incredible upside, and I like his upside a little more than CJ Stroud’s. Richardson has the potential to be the next Jalen Hurts.. or some would say the next Trey Lance. Whatever the case may be, he’s going to get a great opportunity in Indianapolis to showcase his skills. His rushing ability is where his value is in fantasy. If he can develop to be more of a passer than a thrower, he could be the next superstar quarterback.

 

1.04: CJ Stroud. QB, Houston Texans

I had been pretty high on CJ Stroud all year, and nothing changed. He's an incredibly smart quarterback with great instincts. He’s more of a pocket passer, but has the moves to get away from pressure. What really sticks out is his excellent arm and ball placement. There's not a throw he can't make. I see him as a bigger version of Russell Wilson. He is a proven winner and is NFL ready right now. Once he gets some weapons, watch out.

 

1.05: Quentin Johnston, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

At 6’4” 215 lbs, Johnston has the looks of the next Superstar wide receiver, and his landing spot is fantastic. Most rankings have JSN as their top WR followed by Jordan Addison. I like them quite a bit as well, however the potential of them will be their team’s WR1 is slim. Keenan Allen and Mike Williams' time in LA should be coming to an end soon. With that being said, Quentin Johnston could take over as Justin Herbert's WR1 as early as next season. That's what separates him from the others for me in dynasty.

 

1.06: Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Detroit Lions

Jahmyr Gibbs is a weapon, and should be a top 6 rookie pick. He is a skill set that has been often compared to Alvin Kamara. That comparison isn’t bad, but I see more of Austin Ekeler with him. David Montgomery is gonna eat up most of the touchdowns, which will limit Gibbs’ fantasy production. However, If Gibbs gets enough touches in Detroit, he will be an asset in PPR leagues for years to come.

 

1.07: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Seattle Seahawks

Jaxon Smith-Njigba is usally the first wide receiver taken in Rookie Drafts, but not here. Make no mistake, he has incredible talent, but this year is gonna be tough for his fantasy owners due to DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Another concern of mine is he may never take over as the team’s WR1. No worries though, he should see a healthy share of targets once Tyler Lockett moves on. My NFL comp for JSN has always been Amon-Ra St. Brown. He may not get the targets of an Amon-Ra, but with that same kind of skill set, JSN should be a very productive wide receiver in the near future.

 

1.08: Jordan Addison, WR, Minnesota Vikings

I really like the landing spot here for Jordan Addison. Justin Jefferson and TJ Hockenson will be getting plenty of attention, and that’s exactly what you want as an Addison owner. He should slide right into a similar role as what Adam Thielen had. I could see Addison averaging somewhere between 11-14 points a week in PPR leagues this season, and even more moving forward. The uncertainty at quarterback following this coming season is something to keep in mind, but Addison should put up solid fantasy production no matter who the QB is.

 

1.09: Will Levis, QB, Tennessee Titans

Levis is a 6’3” 230 lb. athletic quarterback with a rocket arm. He has sneaky rushing ability as well. Please forgive me for saying this, but he has a similar skill set as Josh Allen coming out of college. I’m not saying he is the next Josh Allen, but potential is certainly there. If Tennessee can surround him with weapons, he could be the most fantasy productive quarterback of this class in the next 2-3 years.

 

1.10: Zay Flowers, WR, Baltimore Ravens

Some may not agree, but Baltimore is a fantastic landing spot for Zay Flowers. At 5’10” and 173 lbs, there are several who doubt Zay Flowers NFL potential. I’m not one of those doubters. This speedster posted 1,077 yds and 12 TDs this past season for Boston College. His fantastic body control helped him catch 50% of his contested catch targets as well. He is everything the Ravens hoped they would have gotten in Hollywood Brown, and with Odell Beckham Jr only under contract for 1 season, Flowers could be the Ravens’ WR1 as soon as 2024.

 

1.11: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Buffalo Bills

What a fantastic situation for Dalton Kincaid. This former basketball player has all kinds of upside in this Buffalo offense. He will most likely line up as a slot receiver and will be treated as just that. He is an absolute red zone threat that could finish as a TE1 this season. He will be a mismatch against opposing LBs due to his quickness and ball skills. He will also be a nightmare for opposing CBs due to his size and strength. Once he improves as a run blocker, he could be a high end TE1 for the next 5-7 seasons.

 

1.12: Zach Charbonnet, RB, Seattle Seahawks

This is the point in the draft where owners start to question who they should be taking. On the surface it seems that Charbonnet ended up in a bad spot, but I’m not so sure that’s true. Unfortunately Kenneth Walker wasn’t very efficient as a rookie, and drafting Charbonnet in the 2nd round tells me that Seattle isn’t so sure about Walker. Charbonnet is a true three-down back who will be a factor in PPR leagues immediately. It may not take long for Charbs to take the lead for good in this Seattle backfield.

 

2.01: Kendre Miller, RB, New Orleans Saints

Kendre Miller ended up in a sneaky good situation. On the surface it looks as if he’s buried behind Alvin Kamara and Jamaal Williams, however that may not last for long. Kamara declined last season and is now facing a potential lengthy suspension. Jamaal Willimas led the league in TDs last season, but is only a 2 down at best back these days. Both Kamara and Williams are 28 years old, and New Orleans always seems to have salary cap issues. I’d say that Kamara and Williams’ days are numbered in New Orleans. Miller could/should be the team’s RB1 next season.

 

2.02: Michael Mayer, TE, Las Vegas Raiders

For months, it seemed pretty obvious that Michael Mayer would be the first tight end selected in the NFL Draft. That wasn’t the case as he was actually the third TE off the board. None of that matters now with Mayer being selected by the Las Vegas Raiders. He ended up in a great situation with a QB who has a record of using his tight end often. Combine that with the fact that Vegas lost their two top tight ends from last year. Mayer could contribute immediately and emerge into a TE1 sooner than later.

 

2.03: Roschon Johnson, RB, Chicago Bears

Another fantastic landing spot here for a rookie. Chicago has two mid-level RBs in Khalil Herbert and D’Onta Foreman. Roschon Johnson is highly underrated due to being behind Bijan Robinson at Texas. He has all the tools to be a legit 3 down back in the NFL. If you want to know how he may figure into this Bears’ backfield, check out this article from our own Randal Kennedy: https://dynastyprosfootball.com/backfield-breakdown-chicago-bears/

 

2.04: Jack Campbell, LB, Detroit Lions

And here we go.. our first IDP off the board. Jack Campbell was highly productive at Iowa racking up 265 total tackles over the last two seasons. He may not be the fastest LB in the draft, but he may be the smartest. He has toughness, range, and coverage skills to be a three-down linebacker in the NFL. He will be a tackle machine and should be the first IDP off the board.

 

2.05: Devon Achane, RB, Miami Dolphins

This is a player/situation that will require patience. Achane will most likely open the season 3rd behind Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. These two mid-level veterans always seem to be banged up or injured, so it’s probably only a matter of time before Achane gets involved. If there’s a coach that can get the most out of a guy like Achane, it’s Mike McDaniel. Like I said before, be patient.

 

2.06: Will Anderson Jr, DE/EDGE, Houston Texans

Here’s our second IDP off the board. He was an absolute monster at Alabama racking up 27.5 sacks over the past two seasons. There will be an adjustment for him at the next level, but the Texans will give him every opportunity to succeed. Hopefully your IDP league rewards sacks nicely. Scoop him up with confidence. Anderson is the top defensive lineman by far.

 

2.07: Trenton Simpson, LB, Baltimore Ravens

Simpson has it all: Size, speed, athleticism, and range. Some argue that he was the most talented linebacker in the draft. He ended up in a great spot as well. In this Baltimore Ravens defense, Patrick Queen has been a highly productive fantasy linebacker. Rumors keep flying around that Queen could be traded. If that were to happen, Simpson would be my LB1 over Jack Campbell and my first IDP taken, so this is a situation to monitor.

 

2.08: Jonathan Mingo, WR, Carolina Panthers

Mingo wasn’t regarded as a top WR in this class, but his landing spot makes you pay very close attention. At 6’2”, 215 lbs, he has the frame to be a WR1 in the NFL. He also has incredible speed for a guy his size. Adam Thielen is not much these days and DJ Chark is more of a stretch WR than a possession WR. Mingo is well worth the risk as he could be Bryce Young’s WR1 as early as 2024.

 

2.09: Tyjae Spears, RB, Tennessee Titans


This 5’10”, 203 pound former Tulane running back was highly productive in 2022, finishing 5th in the FBS in rushing yards (1,586), second in rushing TDs (19), and fourth in yards after contact per attempt (4.55). He could be the successor to Derrick Henry which makes him worth a grab here toward the end of the 2nd round.

 

2.10: Tyree Wilson, DE/EDGE, Las Vegas Raiders

A quick, powerful edge rusher that’s built for the NFL.. that’s what Tyree Wilson is. He’s a strong tackler with a high motor. He has all the tools to be an extremely productive IDP for years to come. Position eligibility in your league will affect where you should draft Wilson. If he is defensive end eligible on myfantasyleague.com, then he should be drafted right after Will Anderson Jr. If you are on Sleeper with dual eligibility, then this is a good spot to take him.

 

2.11: Hendon Hooker, QB, Detroit Lions

Hendon Hooker is an extremely intelligent quarterback who doesn’t turn the ball over. He’s fantastic at rushing the ball as well. He will have to sit behind Jared Goff for a year at least. If he gets a chance, has all the tools to become the next star quarterback in the NFL. Grab him here and stash him until next season.

 

2.12: Jalen Carter, DT, Philadelphia Eagles

Jalen Carter could be one of the best interior pass rushers we’ve seen in recent years. Forgive me for taking him at 2.12, but his tackle numbers will probably be low. Just like most pass rushers, if he doesn’t get a sack, he may only score a few points. With the Dynasty Pros IDP Scoring System rewarding tackles-for-loss, he has risen up my draft board multiple times after being selected by the Philadelphia Eagles. He is a stud, there’s no getting around it. This is a good spot to take him.

 

3.01: Sam LaPorta, TE, Detroit Lions

Sam LaPorta has found himself in a wonderful position. Detroit desperately needed a TE, and LaPorta’s skill set fits perfectly. He may not have very consistent fantasy production this season, but most rookie TEs don’t. He’s a stash/taxi squad player that could be productive next year. With fantasy productive TEs being so thin, he’s worth a grab here to start the 3rd.

 

3.02: Jalin Hyatt, WR, New York Giants

This year’s Biletnikoff Award winner flew up the draft boards, both in fantasy drafts and the actual NFL draft. Hyatt has phenomenal speed and acceleration, and is a big play ready to happen at any time. Posting 1,257 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns in the SEC cannot go ignored. Hyatt could be surprisingly productive this season due to New York desperately needing a spark in their passing offense. Hyatt is a big-time talent and a nice get here.

 

3.03: Josh Downs, WR, Indianapolis Colts

Josh Downs has limited upside in the NFL due to his size, however I could see him being a very good slot receiver. Similar to Zay flowers, Downs needed to land in the right system to be productive in fantasy. Indianapolis is pretty thin at WR, so Downs should see the field early. He’s intriguing.

 

3.04: Drew Sanders, LB, Denver Broncos

Drew Sanders is a player I loved coming out of college. He was a nightmare for opposing teams while he was at Arkansas. He has great instincts and fantastic sideline-to-sideline speed. He was also quite successful as an edge rusher as well. Unfortunately he is undersized to be a true EDGE in the NFL, but he has great speed that will help him get to a QB when he is needed to do so. Sleeper has him as dual eligible, so getting him here in the 3rd round is fantastic value.

 

3.05: Rashee Rice, WR, Kansas City Chiefs

I have mixed emotions on Rashee Rice. I’ve seen him going in the 2nd, but that’s a litle too high for me. It’s hard to figure out these WRs in Kansas City, but he is just that.. a WR in a Kansas City offense. For that reason, he does have above-average upside. That’s what you’re looking for in the 3rd round.

 

3.06: Cedric Tillman, WR, Cleveland Browns

Tillman is a very physical WR and has great 50/50 ball skills. He is a good blocker in the running/ screen game as well. His ability to track the deep ball is borderline elite, but his lack of gamebreaking speed will cause issues in separation. He sustained a serious ankle injury this past season at Tennessee and underwent surgery. He has incredible talent, but he will have to prove his durability at the next level with the Cleveland Browns.

 

3.07: Myles Murphy, DE/EDGE, Cincinnati Bengals

Myles Murphy has everything you want in an edge rusher. Speed, Power, Skill, Instinct, and a high motor. His skill and lower body power is phenomenal. He has great bend and a fantastic spin move that will give quarterbacks nightmares. He should be an asset in IDP leagues after being selected by Cincinnati. I really have had a hard time waiting to pick him in drafts. He's a player that you need to target in your draft.

 

3.08: Chase Brown, RB, Cincinnati Bengals

The drama surrounding Joe Mixon makes Chase Brown an intriguing player in rookie drafts. An underrated RB coming out of college, Brown has the tools to be the RB1 in Cincinnati, especially with Mixon’s days being numbered. Like I said earlier, you’re looking for upside in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th rounds, and Chase Brown has plenty of it.

 

3.09: Jayden Reed, WR, Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers didn’t spend a 2nd round pick on WR Jayden Reed for nothing. Christian Watson is slated to be the team’s WR1, but Romeo Doubs’ role may be in question. Doubs was not very efficient, which leads me to believe that the Packers will be giving plenty of opportunity to Reed. If Reed turns out to be Jordan Love’s WR2, he is well worth grabbing here in the 3rd.

 

3.10: Lukas Van Ness, DE/EDGE, Green Bay Packers

I absolutely love the landing spot here for Lukas Van Ness. Green Bay has had solid pass rushing IDPs over the last several years. Van Ness may not be very productive this first year, but he will be a good EDGE for fantasy down the road. You’re not drafting him to start this year, so stick him on your taxi squad. Be patient my friend, you won’t regret it.

 

3.11: Tank Dell, WR, Houston Texans

Nathaniel “Tank” Dell is a very interesting player for me. At 5’8” 168 lbs, he may not be the most physically appealing prospect, however PFF ranked the best situations for rookie receivers to be in ahead of next season, and put Dell at No. 7 behind other rookies like Jordan Addison, Zay Flowers, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba. And while he doesn't top the list, there are a lot of positives regarding his new teammates, including CJ Stroud, who personally asked the Texans to select the wide receiver. "Dell had one of the most intriguing landing spots," PFF wrote. "Finding himself in Houston with Nico Collins, John Metchie III and Robert Woods ahead of him on the depth chart, a rookie quarterback in C.J. Stroud and a new offensive coordinator in Bobby Slowik who should bring some elements of the San Francisco 49ers offense to the team."

 

3.12: Marvin Mims, WR, Denver Broncos

Mims is a very talented wide receiver, but landed with a team where targets were dominated by the top two receivers last season. Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy saw 106 and 100 targets, with Kendall Hinton third at the position with 31. There have been rumors swirling of Sutton or Jeudy being traded. If that were to happen, Mims would flirt with WR2 fantasy production sooner than later.

 

4.01: Zach Evans, RB, Los Angeles Rams

 

4.02: Daiyan Henley, LB, Los Angeles Chargers

 

4.03: Nolan Smith, DE/EDGE, Philadelphia Eagles

 

4.04: Tank Bigsby, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars
