Full 2QB Dynasty Startup Mock Draft for the 2021 NFL Season

Welcome to the first full 2QB Dynasty mock of the year. Matt and Jason have joined forces and drafted out of the number 3 slot for this dynasty startup mock. The league scoring settings are set to standard .5PPR scoring. The rosters include 1QB, 2Rb, 2WR, 1TE, 2Flex, and a super flex. Of course, with it being a dynasty, the benches should be massive. For this mock Jason and Matt did a total of 24 rounds, good enough for 15 bench spots.

With it being a 12-team 2QB league, the Qbs went off the board fast. This mock offers a great representation of how actual fantasy players draft in a startup when considering a super flex and 12 total teams.

The Draft

1.03 Josh Allen
QB – BUF
Buffalo Bills
When it comes to superflex dynasty rankings, only one player is currently above Josh Allen, and that is Mahomes. We were lucky enough that the number two slot went with Kyler Murray and were able to streal our future and present fantasy-star QB Josh Allen. This is a cornerstone player for a 2QB dynasty team, and it really does not get better than this with the 1.03.

2.10 Matthew Stafford
QB – LAR
los angeles rams
Given the superflex aspect of this mock draft, securing up a second quarterback is very important. Matthew Stafford checks in as a great QB2 who is going to have consistent numbers and also some upside weeks. He moves to a Sean McVay system that made Jared Goff fantasy relevant and will be throwing to some solid weapons. The quarterback dropoff happens after the end of Round 2, making Stafford the easy pick here.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

3.3 J’Marr Chase
WR – CIN
Cincinnati Bengals
Following our Stafford selection, we were now in the position to either grab a very low-end QB to be our 3rd or take a massive risk and grab an elite positional player to build our team around. I think that Chase was the only player besides maybe Metcalf or A.J. Brown, both of which went early, that I would select over a QB. Chase is 21 years old and is clearly already a top-12 fantasy wide receiver. He is reuniting with his collegiate teammate Joe Burrow. While this is not always a massive deal, these two were the big reasons that the 2019 LSU offense may have been the greatest collegiate offense of all time. This is the perfect #1 wide receiver to build around.

– Matthew Amato @MattAmatoSF

4.10 CeeDee Lamb
WR – DAL
Dallas Cowboys
This was a tough spot given the options available, but hard to argue against CeeDee Lamb when you factor in the offense he is in, and Dak Prescott secured to be throwing to Lamb for several years. Lamb turns 23 next season, and the age factor did play a part in going him over Stefon Diggs or any of the top tight ends. Lamb fits the build of the rest of the wide receivers where they are young and also in line to put up monster numbers.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

5.3 Antonio Gibson
RB – WAS
washington football team 1
After securing two incredibly young and talented wide receivers, I felt comfortable grabbing a more short-term asset, at least comparatively speaking, in a young running back. It came down to Najee Harris and Antonio Gibson, and I simply went with the player that I have seen do it before. Gibson was phenomenal in his rookie year, even on a bad offense and with limited touches. This offense will be much better this year and moving forward, and with how talented Gibson is, that could translate into a consistent top-6 running back for years to come.

– Matthew Amato @MattAmatoSF

6.10 Javonte Williams
RB – DEN
Denver Broncos
This pick was difficult. We could either grab another young running back who we love, or grab one of the elite wide receivers left on the board. Considering the scarcity at the running back spot, we opted to go with our heart and draft my #1 rookie running back, talent-wise, from the 2021 NFL draft. Javonte Williams has everything you need to be an elite three-down back, as he is one of the most gifted players I have seen in a while. With Melvin Gordon on the last year of his deal, Williams should be an RB1 or at worst an RB2 for the next few years and a flex option this coming season.

– Matthew Amato @MattAmatoSF

7.3 DJ Chark
WR – JAX
Jacksonville Jaguars
DJ Chark broke out in his second year, bringing in 73 receptions, producing over 1,000 yards, and eight touchdowns. He battled nagging injuries in 2020 yet still produced a 53-706-5 line with erratic quarterback play. Now with Trevor Lawrence stepping in, Chark will get a steadier quarterback performance to help solidify his numbers over the next few seasons. He has been an alpha when it comes to targets, and there should be no reason he doesn’t see 130+ over the next few seasons.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

8.10 Courtland Sutton
WR – DEN
Denver Broncos
The fact that Sutton was still here at 8.10 was shocking to me. Sutton has proved he could be a top-tier wide receiver with awful QB play. With the rumors coming out that Rodgers could head to the Broncos, how can you not grab Sutton here? Even with Drew Lock, you have a solid WR2; however, with Aaron Rodgers, you may be looking at a top-5 receiver for the next three years. Heading into this dynasty league with Sutton, Chase, and Lamb is making this draft feel like a win already.

– Matthew Amato @MattAmatoSF

9.3 Michael Carter
RB – NYJ
New York Jets
Over the next few picks, the goal was to help sure up the running back position, which is rather thin. There are a lot of committees forming, especially after this last draft. The Jets opted not to take one of the big three in this draft and instead took Michael Carter. The path for touches is a lot easier for him, and the Jets system is in a far better place now compared to the previous few seasons. Carter is an athletic back who has big-play potential on each touch. Carter is not a bad option as a third running back pick in this draft.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

10.10 Damien Harris
RB – NE
New England Patriots
I don’t believe Sony Michel will be much of a factor this season and moving forward. The backfield in New England has always been frustrating given the multiple bodies, and that is unlikely to change. However, Harris is someone that New England likes and is committed to last season. He has rushed for five yards per carry in his career and just turned 24. I expect Harris to at least be an early-down back and work in the red zone for the next few seasons. The Patriots should also be in better spots to support a decent fantasy back.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

11.11 Kenneth Gainwell
RB – PHI
Philadelphia Eagles
Kenneth Gainwell is extremely intriguing, and I do not mind reaching a little to go and grab him. Similar to his Memphis teammate Antonio Gibson, Gainwell is a ridiculously good pass catcher, something that he arguably does better than Mile Sanders already. It is not out of the realm of possibility that Gainwell works his way into the lead-back role by the end of this or next season. I am more than willing to take that chance in the double-digit rounds of a dynasty startup.

– Matthew Amato @MattAmatoSF

12.10 Irv Smith
TE – MIN
Minnesota Vikings
Many dynasty owners have been waiting for Irv Smith to get cleared. Luckily for him, he came into the league fairly young and has a long future ahead of him. Dealing with limited targets, Smith should find himself as the third option in the passing game moving forward. Smith is a very athletic tight end who has already flashed his upside. Nabbing him in the 12th round was the easy choice, given there was no TE on the roster yet.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

13.3 Kellen Mond
QB – MIN
Minnesota Vikings
We have ignored the glaring need for a third viable quarterback, and while Kellen Mond is not going to change that, he may be exactly what this fantasy team needs in 2-3 seasons. Mond is an athletic freak with all the talent in the world, but he is still raw. With Kirk Cousins in front of Mond on the depth chart, it will likely be a couple of seasons before Mond even gets the chance to start. This is a lottery ticket at a very valuable position and a perfect taxi squad candidate for our first couple of seasons.

– Matthew Amato @MattAmatoSF

14.10 Will Fuller
WR – MIA
Miami Dolphins
Will Fuller is a dynamic receiver who may be the best deep threat in the league. His issue has always been staying healthy and last season he achieved that. Unfortunately he then was busted for PEDs, which may be the reason he was healthy. Due to this he suspended for 6 games this year, which I just do not care about when considering a dynasty asset in the 14th round. Getting someone of Fuller’s talent this late is fantastic value. He will be a free agent next year and no one is going to pay him to not have a role on their offense for 2022 and beyond.

– Matthew Amato @MattAmatoSF

15.3 Parris Campbell
WR – IND
Indianpolis Colts
There is a chance you might get an injury discount on Parris Campbell and also people not quite believing in the Colts offense yet. T.Y. Hilton is likely done in Indy after this season after returning for one year. Michael Pittman is another name on the roster, but they are thin at this position. Indy was very high on Campbell, but he has played just nine games in two seasons due to injury. The quarterback play has also been spotty, and we have to hope Wentz can bring some stability.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

16.10 Darnell Mooney
WR – CHI
Chicago Bears
Darnell Mooney has been one of my favorite dynasty assets since the pre-season of last year. While he did not put up big numbers in 2020, that was due to the fact his quarterback play was awful. I project that Fields will be a massive upgrade over Trubisky and Foles and therefore make Mooney much more valuable. He is a great separator and could become a WR2 this season if Fields shows up. Again, that is crazy value in the 16th round of 12-team dynasty draft. Another plus is his age at 23 years old.

– Matthew Amato @MattAmatoSF

17.3 Dez Fitzpatrick
WR – TEN
Tennessee Titans
One of the spots I was looking at on draft day was Tennessee and who they’d take to wide receiver. Instead of taking the bigger names early, they drafted for defensive needs and then took Dez Fitzpatrick on Day 3. They did trade up for him, and Fitzpatrick will step into a roster where he could immediately insert himself as the WR2. Fitzpatrick doesn’t jump off the map athletically but has good speed for his size and makes his move when it comes to route running.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

18.10 Mitch Trubisky
QB – BUF
Buffalo Bills
In 2QB dynasty leagues you have to handcuff your starting quarterback. We are already behind the curve as we only have two startable QBs and will have to place a positional player in the super flex on BYE weeks. The last thing you need is your starting QB to get hurt and you to be left with only one QB to start in the playoffs. Trubisky is a very solid backup as he offers rushing upside for fantasy purposes. I like securing him a bit early just incase anyone was thinking of sniping our backup.

– Matthew Amato @MattAmatoSF

19.3 Javian Hawkins
RB – ATL
Atlanta Falcons

It is getting extremely late in the draft and it is time to start taking guys with a lot of upside. Javian Hawkins may have gone undrafted but he is a solid back with very, very little competition in the backfield. Hawkins could easily become the James Robinson of last year and be the starter for the Falcons. Really, the only man in Hawkins’ way is Mike Davis. The 19th round is a value for any kind of player that has a path to being a fantasy starter, and I am glad he slipped to us on the long wait between 18.10 and 19.3.

– Matthew Amato @MattAmatoSF

20.10 Cole Kmet
TE – CHI
Chicago Bears
Staying in the NFC North for another young tight end, Cole Kmet was a later-round grab. He was drafted in the second round out of Notre Dame, which tends to produce solid tight ends. He is a big target and started getting used more down the stretch. Chicago’s tight end room has shrunk a bit, and Kmet should have a full-time role relatively soon, if not in 2021. Adding Justin Fields is also a plus for this offense as a whole.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

21.3 Gus Edwards
RB – BAL
Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore has always been a team that supports strong fantasy running backs. They can also support multiple as they have shown over the last few years, even with a heavy running quarterback. Baltimore has shown their faith in Edwards, and at round 20+, you have to as well. He has rushed for 5.2 yards in his career and rushed for over 700 yards in three straight seasons. As a depth piece, you can’t do much better at the position.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

22.10 Chris Herndon
TE – NYJ
New York Jets
It has been an odd career so far for Chris Herndon, who essentially sat out all of 2019 and didn’t really get integrated into the offense until the last few games of both the 2018 and 2020 season. Under the new regime with a new quarterback, Herndon is a guy to take a shot on. This offense did beef up their weapons around him but not necessarily at the tight end position. The risk is worth taking here, even though we know the floor could be rather low already.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

23.3 John Wolford
QB – LAR
los angeles rams
In a Superflex league, making sure you are covering any possible injury is important. With so many quarterbacks already off the board, you are often looking to handcuff your backup quarterbacks. As we did with Trubisky, we do the same for Wolford backing up Stafford. Both of these names have some rushing potential which always helps the floor if they need to start a few weeks.

– Jason Guilbault @JGuilbault11

24.10 Breshad Perriman
WR – DET
Detroit Lions
Bresshad Perriman was simply the most productive fantasy player left on the board. He should be the #1 WR for Jared Goff this year and he could surprise a few people with how well he plays. Perriman has flashed in the past, especially with the Bucs, showing that he is capable of being a #1 or #2 guy for a team. I do not expect a lot from Perriman but he is a startable asset for the flex and its the 24th round.
