The 2024 NFL Draft has passed by, which means we are just that much closer to the NFL Training Camp and the season starting again! The first round of the draft was offense-heavy, as expected. Still, there were talented offensive players for fantasy football who fell to the second day as well.

Let’s take a look at the fantasy football value for some NFL Draft Day 2 selections, including Keon Coleman, Adonai Mitchell and more.

Fantasy Football Value For Day 2 NFL Draft Picks

1. WR Keon Coleman, Buffalo Bills

After making two trades, including one that traded them out of the first round, the Buffalo Bills drafted Keon Coleman with the 33rd overall pick. With Stefon Diggs being traded to the Texans and losing Gabe Davis in free agency, the Bills had a pressing need at wide receiver. Keon Coleman is put in a wonderful spot with the Bills WR corps consisting of names like Curtis Samuel, Khalil Shakir and Mack Hollins. Then, you pair him with Josh Allen, who brings fantasy numbers and has finished either as QB1 or QB2 in the past four seasons. This couldn’t be a more perfect match.

As of writing, the Keon Coleman fantasy football ADP is WR64 and 148th overall.

2. WR Adonai Mitchell, Indianapolis Colts

One of the bigger draft surprises this year was Adonai Mitchell falling all the way to 53rd overall, where the Indianapolis Colts picked him. Despite having competition in a crowded wide receiver room that features Michael Pittman Jr. and Josh Downs, Mitchell was likely drafted by the Colts to replace Alec Pierce as WR3, as an explosive vertical threat. While he might not get as many targets as the other wide receivers drafted, he possesses an explosive upside, which could cause him to have big games alongside Michael Pittman Jr. This is just like Week 13 of last year, for example, when Pittman and Pierce both had 100 receiving yards and scored a touchdown.

As of writing, the Adonai Mitchell fantasy football ADP is WR53 and 127th overall.

3. RB Blake Corum, Los Angeles Rams

We were all wondering if the Los Angeles Rams were going to look at running back in the NFL Draft, and they did at 83rd overall. This is an interesting spot for Blake Corum to land, given the Rams’ solid performance from RB Kyren Williams last year, who finished as RB7 in PPR scoring. Corum is going to be an ideal handcuff to Kyren Williams, which is why I like him here. Recall last season, during Weeks 7-11. When Williams was sidelined, the Rams had to go to an RBBC approach, with Darrell Henderson Jr. and Royce Freeman, neither of whom are on their roster. Corum has the same do-it-all skillset as Williams, which makes him fit in perfectly as RB2 for the Rams. While his value is primarily tied to Williams’ availability, he offers tremendous upside as a handcuff.

As of writing, the Blake Corum fantasy football ADP is RB39 and 121st overall.

4. WR Ladd McConkey, Los Angeles Chargers

The Los Angeles Chargers addressed a pressing need at wide receiver by trading up to select Ladd McConkey with the 34th overall pick. The Chargers WR room definitely needed an upgrade considering that the only non-rookie WRs they have on the roster are Quentin Johnston, Josh Palmer, Derius Davis and Simi Fehoko. Among these, Palmer was the highest finisher last season, as WR65 in PPR scoring in only 11 games. With McConkey giving college defenders trouble last season, he is poised to see significant targets in the Chargers’ offense. However, there are potential downsides, such as the anticipated shift of a more run-heavy offense, and if Quentin Johnston can rebound from a disappointing drop-filled rookie season, he may steal some targets.

As of writing, the Ladd McConkey fantasy football ADP is WR52 and 124th overall.

5. RB Trey Benson, Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals definitely needed to improve their RB depth behind James Conner, and they did so by selecting Trey Benson with the 66th overall pick. While Conner is still expected to be the “bell-cow” this season, he is entering the last year of his contract. Now, here is where Benson fits in, as James Conner’s health hasn’t been kind to him recently, as Conner has missed eight games in the last two years. If James Conner’s health holds up, Benson should still be an explosive running back, but with limited snaps and carries, making Benson a great fantasy football handcuff or depth option to have.

As of writing, the Trey Benson fantasy football ADP is RB31 and 96th overall.
