What's the best way to keep this backpack sturdy? I lined it and everything, but when I put stuff in it it just drastically droops down.

Well, I think a lot of it depends on your chosen yarn, but you could always line it.

That's what I'm saying though, I lined it, but it still droops.

I don't know how you might do this, since you've already lined it, but you could put a cardboard bottom in - like, cover a piece of thin cardboard with the same fabric you lined your bag with, and put it in the bottom?

My mom makes a lot of cloth purses, and she always cuts some plastic canvas and covers it with the material she uses to line it with.  You might need to tack it down some so it won't move around when you carry it.

I'm not a knitter, but i know that when you make a fabric purse/bag, you should use some sort of interfacting. Also, being a crocheter i know that the best thing to use for a bag that will be used frequently is nylon cord. It makes it stiffer and is more durable. hope that helps.
