Veterans to look forward to

First-year rookie players aren’t the only fantasy winners (or losers) with the 2022 NFL Draft on the books. Some established veterans also saw their stocks rise as a result of the incoming rookie class. Below we will highlight the vets that we are the most aroused design for the next fantasy football season.

Is it time to stop underestimating Derek Carr?

Derek Carr was the QB13 overall last year. He passed for 4,800 yards (QB5) and recorded 7.7 YPA (QB7) with Henry Rugges released in October and Darren Waller seven games paused. Carr willingly threw the ball deep (77 deep ball attempts in the season, QB5) while also managing a top 7 truth rate (73.4%).

If he struggled, it was in the TD department (only 23 passing scores in 2021). But with his old teammate from Fresno State joining the receiving corps, and Waller recovering, Carr should be crushing in the red area of ​​the field. It’s in my top 12…but is the QB15 pro ECR. I will get my man – and if ADP holds – at value. – Liz Loza

It’s hard to imagine how the 2022 draft could have been any better Jalen hurts. On the first night, his team added an untraceable experienced receiver AJ Brown, a player who should make life easier for every offensive gun in Philadelphia. Hurts had reportedly lobbied the Eagles to pursue Brown while also recruiting the receiver to join him in Philly. Passes that were directed Jalen Reagor and Quez Watkins last year now goes to AJ, absolutely massive win. Hurts himself still needs work as a passer, no question, but he is now surrounded by exceptional talent.

It’s also worth noting that the Eagles declined to add a quarterback, which seemed like a possibility leading up to the draft. The team was linked to Ole Miss QB Matt Korral who eventually ended up in Carolina. Hurts now enters 2022 as a solid starter behind a superb O-line and with superior receivers at his disposal. Sounds like a winner. – Andy Behrens

Rashod Bateman is ready to step into the role of #1 WR

Rashod Bateman saw a huge jump in fantasy value after that Marchioness Brown was traded to Arizona, and Baltimore also failed to design a receiver. Bateman was in the top 5 in contested catch rate in his rookie season and should grow in Year 2 if Lamar Jackson is also primed for a great rest. The Ravens quietly ranked in the top-10 in passing attempts last season, and Bateman is about to make a big leap in goals. I got him into top 20 WR territory. Dalton del Don

The fascinating Buffalo duo remains unchallenged

I was excited that Buffalo didn’t move over Gabriel Davis. And even though backfield help is arriving, I’m still thinking Devin Singletar makes sense as a pick in the dreaded running back dead zone. I believe Buffalo when they say they prefer it Josh Allen Run less and open up a probable career year to singletary. Scott Pianoski

The healthy JK Dobbins should be the undisputed leader of the Ravens backfield

I was shattered that the Ravens would land a running back that could continue to foul their backfield the entire time the team was drawing. Not only do they somehow always seem to create the perfect player at the perfect time, but considering they all went down the defensive or offensive line with their first six picks, I knew an offensive player could be coming soon. I’m a huge Dobbins fan and have been waiting to draft him for his next healthy season. Of course, I couldn’t blame the Ravens for taking a high-profile rookie runner with a mid-round pick. After all, both Dobbins and Gus Edwards tore their ACLs before a regular-season snap last year.

Ultimately, the Ravens took Tyler Badie from Missouri with her last pick of the draft (a sixth pick). Badie has advantages, but he’s undersized and projects as a pass-fighting third-down savant rather than a full every-down back. The electric Dobbins has enough to do with Edwards and already Lamar Jackson I’m glad the Ravens decided not to invest heavily in a position they’ve suffered so much wear and tear on over the last season. (Of course, when I finished typing this, the Ravens signed it Mike Davis — but we’ve seen the Mike Davis show before, so I’m relatively unconcerned). – Mo Castillo
