"FBG is the best fantasy football advisory service anywhere."
Nigel Eccles, Co-Founder, FanDuel
The appeal of playing dynasty fantasy football is that you never stop building your rosters. There is always time to make moves to help build a contender or rebuild your struggling roster. Now that the 2023 class has come and gone, it's time to start looking ahead to the 2024 class. This season, we will provide fantasy managers with a top-36 big board that will be updated weekly to reflect the top 36 draft-eligible players in college football. The hope is that this big board will give you actual names and value to any draft picks you are trying to trade or acquire. I will also add dynasty content to this article, including players to pivot to or away from, dynasty stashes, dynasty trades, and much more.
RB TreVeyon Henderson (Jr - Ohio State): 5-foot-10, 214 lbs
We've been waiting for Henderson to play up to his potential all season, and we finally got to see it against Wisconsin. The former Freshman All-American had 162 yards rushing and added 45 yards receiving against a tough Badger defense. When Healthy, he can be a three-down back and is one of the only true three-down backs in this class. Ohio State will need to lean on him heavily down the stretch of the season if they want to win the Big Ten, especially if Kyle McCord is not 100%. This could be the perfect storm for Henderson to get momentum heading into the draft cycle if he decides to declare.

WR Ladd McConkey (Jr - Georgia) 6-foot-0, 185 lbs
McConkey is a player that hasn't made my big board but should be on dynasty manager's radar if he decides to come out after this season. With the Georgia Bulldogs losing Brock Bowers for the foreseeable future, they needed someone to step up for them this week against Florida, and McConkey answered the call. He ended up having six receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown. The 135 yards tied a career-high, and he had over 100 yards for just the second time in his Georgia career. While he has never had huge numbers, he does the little things correctly and should test very well during the pre-draft process. Keep an eye on McConkey when he is at the Senior Bowl, and depending on what scheme he lands in, he could be a sleeper come next August.

Ladd McConkey's 135 receiving yards against Florida were the second most in the rivalry's history over the last 22 years.
The only other player to have more than him was Brock Bowers in 2022. He had 154 receiving yards against Florida.pic.twitter.com/FKDXs98i9x
2024 Draft Pick Values
With the NFL season starting, dynasty leagues are increasingly active, which means more trades are undoubtedly occurring. The whole point of this big board each week is to help you identify where the talent in the current class is and start identifying target areas and tiers to trade for. It's also important to understand market values and what 2024 picks cost in the dynasty market. Below, you will find players currently being moved for 2024 1sts and 2024 2nds.

Contender Buy - Cooper Kupp (KTC Value - RB10) Age: 30
The last two weeks have opened a unique buy window for Cooper Kupp. Kupp has combined to record just six receptions for 50 yards across his previous two games, and quarterback Matthew Stafford appeared to hurt his thumb last week against Dallas. We dont have a definitive answer on what that will mean for Stafford long-term yet. Whoever has Kupp on their roster could be getting anxious that Kupp's best days are behind him, and the Stafford injury could limit his ceiling. Perception is king in dynasty, and if there is a mediocre team that waited for Kupp to return expecting big games and now sits in the middle of the pack in the standings, they could be looking to cut their losses with Kupp.
Regarding Kupp's outlook, the Rams have a great fantasy playoff schedule, and with the 49ers losing again this weekend, it looks like they will be right in the mix of the division. Your expectation should be for Kupp to be a WR1 with a floor as a WR2 for the remainder of the season and be someone you can plug in the next two seasons, barring injury. He's a buy.
- Cooper Kupp for Jahan Dotson/Nico Collins
- Cooper Kupp for 2024 1st (Projected Late)
- Cooper Kupp/Dalton Kincaid for Terry McLaurin/George Kittle/2024 4th
- Cooper Kupp for George Pickens/2024 1st
- Cooper Kupp for DeVonta Smith/2024 4th
Rebuilding Sell - George Kittle (KTC Value - TE7) Age: 30.0
Kittle has looked great this season when the 49ers were without Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk—in last week's game, he caught 9-of-11 targets for 149 yards against the Bengals. He is currently a top 5 tight end in PPR formats, but in the games where every player is healthy, he's averaging under eight fantasy points per game. Kittle's production is just not going to last, and with his age, it's time to move on from him in dynasty. He's most likely at his peak for this season, and it's time to sell whether you are a contender or a rebuilding team.
- George Kittle/D'Onta Foreman for Khalil Herbert/Tee Higgins/2024 2nd
- George Kittle for Rashid Shaheed/2024 1st
- George Kittle for Pat Freiermuth/2024 2nd
- Terry McLaurin/George Kittle/2024 4th for Cooper Kupp/Dalton Kincaid
- George Kittle for Kenneth Gainwell/Diontae Johnson/2024 3rd
Dynasty Stash - Xavier Gipson (KTC - NA) Age: 22
Gipson is a player worth a stash in deeper leagues, especially ones where you can add players to your taxi squad. Gipson stood out late in training camp and the preseason and had the memorable, game-winning punt return in Week 1. On the season, Gipson has one catch for four yards but has been used as a runner on four carries for 34 yards. His explosiveness should excite managers and the team's insistence that he will be used in their offense. The team trading Mecole Hardman Jr. back to the Chiefs was also a positive sign for his long-term outlook and ability to stay on the 53-man roster.
Dynasty Stash - Brenton Strange (KTC - NA) Age: 22
Strange had his best season in college last season, where he started all 13 games and caught 32 passes for 362 yards and five touchdowns. The Jaguars selected Strange with the No. 61 overall pick, making him the first-ever tight end selected in the second round in franchise history. He came into the season as one of the most versatile rookie tight ends drafted, and he landed in a perfect landing spot to develop at the position. Doug Pederson's ability to produce top-10 fantasy tight ends should not go unnoticed, and now is the time to get Strange on your roster. He scored his first touchdown last weekend and has a favorable situation sitting as the number two tight end behind Evan Engram. If Engram were to miss any time due to injuries, Strange could see a massive increase in value.
Dynasty Stash - Andrei Iosivas (KTC - WR122) Age: 24
Iosivas was drafted in the 6th round of the NFL Draft, and he was everyone's favorite sleeper heading into the season, with many thinking he could have a Puka Nacua-like start of the season in the Bengals offense. We haven't seen that type of production, but we have seen him score two touchdowns this year and be efficient when given the opportunity. Looking ahead to 2024, we could see a significant increase in his role if the Bengals decide to move on from Tee Higgins or possibly Tyler Boyd. With the uncertainty with those two players' roles right now and with Iosivas earning his coaching staff's trust this season, he could be in line for a value bump the remainder of the year and throughout next off-season.
