Andy Hicks on Jul 9: Now into his ninth year, Davante Adams is a guy you rank high, but worry about how he adapts to Derek Carr and the Raiders. Smith is an excellent rebuilding target for managers and a player that can outperform his current ADP. Craig Lakins on Jul 5: I'm not willing to hold his average playoff performances against him considering he shouldn't have been playing at all. When healthy, he's shown great burst and playmaking ability. Shepard is not someone to buy into. Waller should benefit from the double coverages that Adams will see, freeing him up in single coverage and on the outside. Last season we saw an uptick in his targets including 36 in hi last six games. Adam Wilde on May 24: Najee Harris should see even more volume than Jonathan Taylor, though he is one year older and slightly less talented than Taylor. Pickens and Kenny Pickett could form an extraordinary duo over the next three seasons. His lack of touchdowns was one negative about his campaign but that had more to do with their scheme then him as a player. His ability to stretch the field fits Zach Wilson's strengths, and Wilson's ability to separate will lead to him commanding targets all over the field. Even with those additions Lawrence could struggle. If Willis does start his rushing upside is his biggest asset. Marshall has adequate, if not above-average talent at the position but he is also young (will turn 22 in June). Kevin Coleman on Jun 1: Huntley showed that he was a competent backup in 2021. The opportunity is there for Jordan to outperform his current ADP. Hurts will undoubtedly be a top eight fantasy quarterback this season but his future is murky at best. Tolbert was a dominant college receiver who caught 82 balls for 1,474 yards and eight touchdowns last season. Gallup did sign a 5-year contract that should solidify his dynasty value and likely projects as the Cowboy's long-term WR2. The 49ers drafted him as a depth piece in the backfield, and he should be competing for the No. Kevin Coleman on May 30: Carson Strong is a dynasty stash. We also saw an improvement in the passing game with 40 receptions. They have an improving O-line that should be dangerous if they can stay healthy. The upside to Bateman is that hes now the clear #2 option behind only Mark Andrews in an offense that has historically relied heavily on their rushing attack and top two receiving options. He is also extremely durable, missing only three games since he was drafted. 14. Craig Lakins on Jun 26: As long as he's playing, he's going to produce at a high level. Any doubts about his ability to be the lead back were clearly dispelled. Kevin Coleman on Jun 14: Damien Williams has a chance to fantasy relevant in 2022. The question will be, if Deebo doesn't leave, can Trey Lance make Samuel, Kittle, and Aiyuk fantasy relevant? Kevin Coleman on May 31: Saquon Barkley is primed for a comeback year in 2022. Kevin Coleman on May 29: Joe Burrow had a season for the ages in 2021 leading the Bengals to the Super Bowl and finishing as QB5 in fantasy. This year will see whether a new quarterback has better timing. Kevin Coleman on Jul 6: With the uncertainty at the quarterback position and with D.K. With Chase Edmonds and his 116 carries and 40;plus receptions gone to Miami and no real depth options, Conner could see much more work. Andy Hicks on Jul 9: For young quarterbacks to succeed, they need excellent coaching, strong targets, and development of their skills. If you have him on your roster it's a wait and see game. He has a ton of talent and his new coach in Minnesota should dial up more pass attempts than the previous regime. With neither Devin Singletary nor Zack Moss commanding a leading role, the opportunity is there for the sure-handed Cook to shine quickly. Mike Tomlin has never been afraid to give his RB a massive role and I don't expect that to change. The presence of former high draft pick, Ronald Jones and Jerick McKinnon coming back do not bode well for Edwards-Helaire outplaying his ADP. DeZhaun Stribling | WR | Washington St. 171. Harrison Waylee | RB | Northern Illinois He has value in PPR formats if he's healthy and could find himself a role this season. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: If healthy, Parris Campbell always has a chance to break through with a top-24 fantasy season. Another year of experience will help increase his numbers. Tyler Buchner | QB | Notre Dame Kevin Coleman on Jun 14: Ty Johnson is not a good running back. 139. Davis-Price should be viewed as more of a replacement for Trey Sermon. 204. His ceiling is among the highest of the quarterbacks and his rushing upside is too good to pass up in fantasy. The Bears will most likely add wide receivers next off-season. Darren Grainger | QB | Georgia State With Gabriel Davis, his fantasy ranking is now that of a WR3, despite dropping in production from a solid rookie season. 108. But McCaffrey's production on a per-game basis has not suffered, and while the Panthers would be wise to dial back his workload, involvement in the passing game should keep his floor high as he heads into 2022. He's a free agent after 2022. Kevin Coleman on Jun 4: Tony Pollard should offer stand-alone RB3 production this season but his dynasty value is murky. However, Brown's talent could allow Smith to work in single-coverage, and he has upside at his current ADP. It's hard for me to see him rounding back into his 2020 form. Christian Kirk saw over seven targets a game at receiver last season, so that is Brown's floor with Hopkins being out. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: There are so many vacated targets on the Green Bay offense that Tonyan would seem to be in line for better production this season. Kevin Coleman on Jun 1: Andy Dalton will be in line to be QB2 on the depth chart for the New Orleans Saints. Kevin Coleman on May 30: In the last four games of that Justin Fields played in 2021 he averaged 20 FPTS/G and was a top twelve quarterback in the league.
Kevin Coleman on Jun 13: The Bills drafting James Cook tells you everything you need to know about Zack Moss. Unfortunately for Toney, he suffered an injury that would cause him to miss a majority of the season after week 11. Lamars rushing upside has never been in question, and he should see an increase in rushing touchdowns next season after only rushing for two in 2021. 94. Surprisingly Jefferson still has further improvement in bis game and is a safe option at the top of almost all formats. Kevin Coleman on Jun 2: Damien Harris should be the bell-cow of the Patriots backfield this season. Craig Lakins on Jun 27: Pete Carroll wants to run the ball. Plan accordingly. As a receiver, he had four games with at least four catches in 2020. 32. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Hamler will be the Broncos #4 receiver in 2022 and is coming off an ACL surgery. Dillon recording more carries than his teammate, Jones may only have value if his role as a receiver out of the backfield increases. Cook is likely to take over the full-time role in that backfield mid-year with homerun potential but his red-zone carries will be limited. Kevin Coleman on Jun 13: Pierre Strong Jr. completed his fourth season for South Dakota State in 2021, leading the nation (FCS) in rushing with 1,686 yards to go with 18 rushing touchdowns. Kevin Coleman on Jun 2: Mattison is one of the top back-up running backs to have in dynasty. He finished the season with 92 receptions for 1,361 yards and nine touchdowns. Keaton Mitchell | RB | ECU Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been disappointing to date and the Chiefs backfield projects as a share situation. He's an athletic player at the position and could have some boom weeks in the offense if Everett misses time. Kevin Coleman on May 30: Trevor Lawrence had a terrible season in 2021. Kevin Coleman on May 30: Drew Lock is locked in a tight battle with Geno Smith for the Seahawks QB1. He will compete with C.J. 240. He also added 375 yards receiving and 37 receptions and went on to finish RB8 last season in PPR leagues. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Robbie Anderson threatened to retire this summer because of the team's bad quarterback play. His huge paycheck may be difficult to recoup for fantasy managers and expectations should be managed. Having scored 20 FPTS/G in two games last season and at times showed that he could be a RB1 option on an NFL team. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: David Bell looks like he will be the new Cleveland slot receiver. Craig Lakins on Jul 6: Many were hoping Marshall would follow in the footsteps of his LSU teammates, JaMarr Chase and Justin Jefferson. These were connecting in his rookie year. The departure of Ben Roethlisberger means he should be even more potent and key to the Steelers success. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Rob Gronkowski has reportedly retired, but he's staying right here in the rankings until the start of the pre-season. As safe as you can get at running back. If Jeudy doesn't produce this season though dynasty managers need to be very afraid. Look for Mike McDaniel to tailor an offense around Hill like he used Deebo Samuel last season. When healthy last season Winston was a top-15 quarterback in fantasy. Breece Hall gives them a serious threat in the backfield. While most players are generally slipping at this point, Kupp seems to be just hitting his elite stride. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Calvin Ridley is a great dynasty buy right now. Chubb historically only gets 16-18 touches a game.
Camar Wheaton | RB | SMU 92. Add in Dalton Schultz and Dak Prescott has one of the safest floors of any quarterback around his ADP. He's averaged over 24 fantasy points per game and has ascended as the clear cut QB1 in fantasy. Regardless of Ertz being on the roster, he's a great taxi squad stash with upside on a Cardinals offense that will utilize him in the passing game. Kevin Coleman on Jun 13: J.D. He is a big-time threat over the middle of the field. Chark and Jameson Williams, St. Brown will struggle to command a top target share this season. He missed all last season with a torn meniscus and has failed to break out in his career, but he's an athletic playmaker at a position that is designed for his athletic profile. Until then, hold him on your rosters if he decides to be reunited with Brady in Tampa. Engram has dealt with injuries, and poor quarterback play his entire career. There is a scenario where Hall could see over 250 touches this year and volume matters. 117. His draft price is his floor. He should be able to stretch the field and connect on a deep ball now and then. If you look at his target share prior, it was under 25%. That doesn't bode well for his dynasty value moving forward. Please note that we have no control over how frequently the experts update their rankings. Deneric Prince | RB | Tulsa
Jeff Haseley on Jul 4: Matt Ryan is no stranger to 4,000-yard seasons, racking up 10 in his career. 64. He should see the volume needed to be a RB2 in fantasy leagues next season and he's never had less than 268 touches in a season. Based on ADP, White is a value among the rookie running backs after Ken Walker and Breece Hall. I don't see much to like here going forward. Craig Lakins on Jun 26: He looked promising as a rookie, but I wonder about Houston's long-term vision here. Matthew Golden | WR | Houston 238. He's capable of putting up huge fantasy outputs every time he takes the field. These dynasty cornerstone rankings for SUPERFLEX dynasty fantasy football leagues are intended to gauge the long-term potential value of players over the next several seasons. Jefferson is arguably the most skilled wide receiver in the NFL playing on his rookie deal on a team that's indicating that they plan to throw the football more. Jordan Addison | WR | USC Dobbins should get a hefty work load as he will be a sight for sore eyes once he's back in pads. 109. To become relevant he'll likely need someone in front of him to be injured. These are how I would rank all players in a fresh draft, so if your team is skewing young or old, you can adjust on the fly and move some players around. The Lions did upgrade their WR corps but Swift should still see plenty of targets in the passing game having 78 targets in just 13 games last season. While with the Patriots he operated a run-heavy offense which could hurt Carr's fantasy output. The team responded by adding Baker Mayfield. Hes also shown flashes as a receiver, with 33 receptions for 272 yards and two touchdowns. That leaves him as almost a pure passer, almost anachronistic in today's NFL. 2022 Fantasy Football: Running Back Sleepers, Its Time For Byron Buxtons Dynasty Stock to Fall. Craig Lakins on Jun 26: I really like Fields as a quarterback, but he is not set up for success in Chicago. Craig Lakins on Jul 3: Heading into year 4, his best football should be ahead of him. Eric Gray | RB | Oklahoma 18. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Reynolds signed a two-year 12 million dollar deal to stay in Detroit but won't be fantasy relevant. Devon Achane | RB | Texas A&M He's a career backup. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Christian Watson is a workout monster, but time will tell if he can be a complete receiver in the Green Bay Packer's offense. With a young and improving receiver group and the likely number one running back in the NFL, Ryan is a steal in fantasy drafts. He had one of the league's highest target shares and outperformed every other Colts receiver by a mile. Craig Lakins on Jun 26: Sadly, I believe Mr. Carson is finished. He averaged 18.5 FPTS/G and 117 yards per game. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Johnson had multiple opportunities last season to prove he deserved more playing time but failed to do so. 199. Andy Hicks on Jul 9: Alvin Kamara had his most disappointing fantasy season last year. Zakhari Franklin | WR | UTSA Craig Lakins on Jul 3: Thomas is 31 and coming off of a torn ACL. Kevin Coleman on Jun 2: James Robinson suffered a torn achilles in December and looks to be starting off the season on the PUP list. You don't currently have any notifications. Copyright 2006-2022 Fantasy Sports Enterprises, LLC. Kevin Coleman on Jun 1: Kellen Mond will also be battling for the backup job as he is entering year two in the Vikings system. He only received 53.6% of the snaps in 2021. If Dalvin Cook gets injured, Mattison is a RB1 option in your leagues. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: The SMU product will be in a depth chart battle with rookie Jelani Woods. That trend should continue due to the lack of weapons on the outside for this Bear's offense. Kevin Coleman on May 30: Teddy Bridgewater's only value would be if Tua Tagovailoa was to get hurt. Granson struggled to break out last season and struggled with run blocking, which is something that won't help you see the field. Add in 11 receptions for 146 yards and a touchdown and Barkley had fantasy managers excited for his future. He caught 38 balls for 410 yards and only one touchdown before signing a free-agent contract with the LA Rams. Jaden Bray | WR | Oklahoma St. 1 target heading into the season. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Tremble will stay on the field because of his blocking ability but is a dart throw in fantasy. Kevin Coleman on May 30: Mac Jones finished 2021 as QB17 overall averaging just 14 FPTS/G and while Mac played the best of the rookie quarterbacks of 2021 his fantasy ceiling is severely limited. If Deshaun Watson isn't suspended this season, he could be a sneaky add in dynasty leagues. He has finished as a WR2 every season except for one and down the stretch with Davis Mills was a top-10 fantasy option. Peny Boone | RB | Toledo With the additions of D.J. 166. The departure of Davante Adams opens this door and coming off his best season in this role, more can be expected this year. Look for Moore to be used in every facet of the game. He could easily be a low-end RB2 this season if he stays healthy based on his pass-catching alone. Marvin Mims | WR | Oklahoma Last season Sony Michel and Darrel Henderson combined for 257 carries for 1,533 yards and 14 total touchdowns. Second Down: 2022 College Fantasy Football Player Rankings, Top 500 Fantasy Baseball Dynasty Rankings, Fantasy EPL 101 How to Play Draft Premier League, Fantrax College Fantasy Football Commissioner, Compete for Cash Prizes in a Fantrax Classic Draft Contest, Get ready for the season with a mock draft on Fantrax.com, Create your own league or join an existing league with Fantrax Commissioner. 156. Burrow led the league in passing attempts per game his rookie season and averaged 32.5 attempts in 2021. Adam Wilde on May 26: The post-Tom Brady Tampa Bay Buccaneers are likely to also be the post-Leonard Fournette Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 172. Dorian Thompson-Robinson | QB | UCLA, 61. He'll compete with Ronald Jones for early down work but should have a role within this offense with a limited ceiling. Kevin Coleman on Jul 6: Stefon Diggs will have one of the best seasons he's ever had in his career in 2022. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: After Eric Ebron was injured last season, Freiermuth stepped up big time in the full-time role. 145. Look for him to be a red-zone threat this season and if Gibson can't stay healthy Robinson could be the starter. Taye McWilliams | RB | Baylor He played in a heavy-run scheme at NDSU and will need time to develop. Craig Lakins on Jun 26: He just has not shown anything on the field in his limited opportunities thus far. 65.
Myles Brennan | QB | LSU Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen made Wan'Dale Robinson the first receiver they took in the new regime. The Commanders added Brian Robinson which will limit McKissic's touchdown upside but his value is his pass catching ability in PPR leagues. Henry Parrish Jr. | RB | Miami (FL) He landed in a crowded backfield and looks to be a long term dynasty asset. A new coaching staff is a concern, especially as his salary cap number rises and getting cheap at the position is relatively easy. The Rams traded Robert Woods to the Titans this off-season replacing him with Allen Robinson however that wont hurt Kupps overall value. Derrick Henry is a complete outlier in every way, but he has to cede some carries to someone to prolong his career. If his ADP drops low enough he could be a value as he has demonstrated his viability when healthy in the Seahawk's run-heavy offense. He looks to be in a quarterback battle with Mitch Trubisky but should keep his value throughout the 2022 season. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: D.J. Granson is a player to watch as he continues to expand his knowledge at the position. He finished as QB3 last season and it would not surprise me to see him finish as a top 5 fantasy quarterback again in 2022. 152. As of now Corral will be battling it out with Sam Darnold.
Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Alec Pierce has found himself on a team that fits his skills. He had forty-four receptions for 598 yards and eight touchdowns in his one season at Virginia. Jones is a much better back. Isaiah Bowser | RB | UCF
Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Van Jefferson had a chance to breakout in 2021 due to injuries to Robert Woods and Odell Beckham Jr. but didn't quite produce as much as fantasy managers would have liked. The Patriots also added two day three running backs in the draft and there is a chance that it turns into a RBBC backfield next season. Murray still offers "konami" upside and could be a league winner once Hopkins comes back from his suspension. He fits Nathaniel Hackett's scheme and could have a prominent role. The question will be what will new head coach's Josh McDaniel's system do for Jacobs but with the unlikelihood that Jacob's returns to the team next year he could see an increased workload. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Moreau has almost no dynasty value unless Darren Waller misses extended time. Kevin Coleman on Jul 6: Mike Evans saw a career-low target share in 2021 that should concern fantasy managers. If Albert O struggles, we could see Dulcich earn some playing time over him. He's a top buy in dynasty leagues. Have to think Dallas gets him an extension somehow. Unfortunately, he just hasn't been able to stay healthy, and his dynasty value is near rock bottom. If the starter is Jacoby Brissett, stay away. Kris Thornton | WR | JMU 237. Andy Hicks on Jul 9: James Conner may actually be value this year. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Bryant will most likely serve as a blocking tight end for the Browns and as David Njoku's backup. His light use should prolong him safely with good health. 86. He has continually failed to live up to expectations each season. A.T. Perry | WR | Wake Forest As long as Fournette stays healthy he will hold his dynasty value for the next two seasons. Puka Nacua | WR | BYU Kevin Coleman on Jun 14: Hill missed the end of last season with a knee injury. 148. Dominic Richardson | RB | Oklahoma St. This is not news. Kevin Coleman on May 30: Being traded to the Colts drastically improved Matt Ryan's fantasy stock. Kevin Coleman on May 30: Aaron Rodgers enters the season at 38 and just lost Davante Adams, one of the best receivers in the NFL to the Las Vegas Raiders. 2 duties behind Christian McCaffrey. He has flat out unstartable in the middle of the year last season. The issue with Chubb is he just isn't a receiving threat in the Brown's offense. He's a one-year rental in dynasty formats. 189. They improved their offensive line and Wilson could see the highest value bump of the other quarterbacks in this range.
Michael Carter does not worry me and Hall is a 3-down running back. Kevin Coleman on Jul 7: Time will tell if Justyn Ross is healthy enough to play football, but he's worth a stash until then. Can he rise above his circumstances in year 2? Brown will receive similar opportunity in the Eagles offense. Craig Lakins on Jul 5: JaMarr Chase is an absolute monster. 37. This combination of players provides a valuable comparison of young veterans, current rookies and devy players. This may be the last season you can extract any value out of him as an asset. Kevin Coleman on May 30: Trubisky is a career backup with a chance to start a few games this season for the Steelers. Craig Lakins on Jul 4: After two strong seasons in 2018 and 2019, Golladay has done very little since. Andy Hicks on Jul 9: Once again Jerry Jeudy is being drafted on potential rather than actual production.
