Best Fantasy Fits from Day 2 of the 2024 NFL Draft

Day 2 is in the books and again we saw a number of Fantasy relevant selections made over the course of the 2-Round spectacle that is Friday of the NFL Draft.

The emphasis on pass-catchers over the last 2-3 years proved again to be the biggest development for offense in the NFL, and this Draft specifically is loaded with receivers who project to be impactful early in their careers.

While Running Backs may have taken a back seat in NFL team-building, it still remains the most important position for Fantasy Football. Only 3 RBs were selected on Day 2, but 2 of them make my list of the best Fantasy fits of the day.


The Bills waited it out, traded back twice, added valuable Draft capital, and still landed their guy at WR with the 1st pick of Day 2 (33 overall). Coleman is a true power forward at WR and projects as a solid possession receiver with some big-play chops down the field. Obviously, going to Buffalo to play with Josh Allen helps your Fantasy stock, and Coleman should be a valued target in both Dynasty and Redraft leagues this year.


Chargers fans should be thrilled with the trade up and selection of McConkey. The Georgia product might be the Draft’s best route-runner and he isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty in the running game. He should fit in nicely with OC Greg Roman’s run-heavy scheme. Similar to Coleman above, McConkey’s value is raised by the QB already in place in Justin Herbert, who should look his way early and often in Year 1. He’ll push for 100+ catches as a Rookie and should be a late 1st Round selection in Dynasty Rookie drafts.


If Brooks hadn’t been injured in his final season for the Longhorns, he might have been a 1st Round pick. Instead, he goes in Round 2 to the RB-needy Panthers and should be their RB1 right away, despite the presence of Miles Sanders and Chuba Hubbard on the roster. Brooks just moves different and has an impressive skillset as both a runner and receiver. The Panthers will want to run the football to help 2nd-year QB Bryce Young. Brooks needs to be on your Draft board for Fantasy.


Are you an incredibly athletic prospect with a sky-high ceiling? Chances are you’re going to Indianapolis. They definitely have a type, and AD Mitchell matches it perfectly. I had to put him on this list for that simple fact. Mitchell was my WR4 in this class, so adding him to a potentially explosive offense makes a ton of sense. He’ll be boom or bust early in his career, but he’s too talented to not make an impact for Fantasy managers who take the risk to draft him.


I really like Trey Benson in Arizona as the lightning to James Conner’s thunder. Conner also has a pretty long injury history, and missed games in 2023. Benson’s speed and break-away ability are going to be hard to keep off the field for the Cardinals, who are in desperate need of some big-play ability. This is more of a future play for Fantasy, but Benson’s upside is tremendous and he should be highly sought-after, specifically in Dynasty formats.


Another fantastic Dynasty prospect is McMillan, who heads to Tampa to help round out a really solid receiving corps for Baker Mayfield. McMillan can do a little bit of everything, and he has inside-outside versatility. He is ultra reliable as a possession receiver and can separate in tight spaces, making him a solid Red Zone threat as well. Don’t love him this year in Redraft leagues, but as a Dynasty prospect, this is a great fit.

Just Missed:
Ja’Lynn Polk | WR | New England Patriots
Malachi Corley | WR | New York Jets
Roman Wilson | WR | Pittsburgh Steelers
