Would a Nikon Z 50 give a new life to those old DX lenses?

I have a bunch of old Nikon lenses that have been sitting for years in a drawer. Some are DX lenses that I liked at the time I was using them on the Fuji S-2 and S-3. I wonder if taking a Nikon Z 50 with FTZ adapter would give those lenses a new life? This would be to have a relatively light an affordable travel kit to give to one of my kids.

Tokina AT-X M35 PRO DX Macro 35mm f2.8

Tokina AT-X Pro SD 12-24mm F4

Nikon 18-200mm VR version I (built in motor)

If experiences or knowledge base are available, should those lenses fully work on the FTZ adapter? Thanks for your feedback!

The main drawback I find to the Z 50 is the non side flippable screen for use on tripod. Maybe there would be a better option?
