Every season, many players will break the hearts of the fantasy master. Whether it’s because of injuries (to them or the players around them), loss of playing time, or just a decline in skills, these bankruptcies will definitely sink our team. Whether they are “must-have sleepers” or top-ranked veteran stallions-if you expect them to produce and they fail, you will be disappointed. Some depressions are without warning, but others have obvious red flags that need to be highlighted on the draft cheat sheet.
When considering bankruptcy, we are not talking about obvious choices that are plagued by injuries, such as Michael Thomas or someone at a lower level in their respective positions. Those players won’t spend so much money on draft day, so they can only hurt you so much.Instead, we highlight those Can There are explosive seasons, but far more dangerous than most fantasy owners realize. If you can get any of them at a price below market value during the draft, you must do so, but it’s not wise to touch them.
Lead your draft: Ultimate 2022 cheat sheet
Below, we will discuss the candidates for the boom or bust in 2022 and analyze in depth why they were included in the list.All ADP referenced by Fantasy career (Standard scoring format).
2022 fantasy boom or bust team
QB boom or bust
Jalen Hurts, Eagles (QB11 ADP)
Hurts is an exciting young quarterback, because of his elite rushing ability, he has the potential for upper-level fantasy. In the best case, Hertz, along with Lamar Jackson and Kyler Murray, became candidates for this year’s 1,000-yard sprint and added more than 3,000 yards of air distance. His advantage is undeniable. From the 14th to the 17th week of last year, Hurts was QB7. His “prosperity” potential is justified.
Now, let us delve into why he is also likely to go bankrupt.As of this writing, the Eagles’ coaching staff still Although Joe Flacco and Nick Mullens are his competitors, but he will not fully promise to name Hertz as the starting quarterback. Although we definitely think he will win the starting position, Hertz only completed 52% of his passes last season. This is really terrible. In order for his rapid rise to be even important, he must stay on the court. If he does not significantly improve his passing acuity, he will not stay on the court for long. The new regime in Philadelphia didn’t have allegiance to Hertz beforehand, and that didn’t help, so he might be restrained.
Once again, he has the advantage of the top five, but the bench may call his name at the beginning of the season, which makes him the riskiest choice among the top 12 QBs.
RB boom or bust
Jonathan Taylor, Colts (RB8 ADP)
Taylor’s rookie behind the excellent Colts offensive line left a deep impression. He is the standard league RB4 and PPR format RB6, quickly becoming the top 10 dynasty assets. Due to the RB1 ceiling, his RB8 ADP may feel a little low. It can work in this way, but proceed with caution.
Marlon Mack (Achlles) returned to the depth chart after becoming a 1,000-yard sprinter in 19 years. In addition, Niheim Hines is still one of the elite catch guards in the league. If this is not enough to worry you, add the injuries of Carson Wentz (foot) and All-Pro guard Quenton Nelson (foot). Anthony Castonzo retired after last season. His replacement was Eric Fisher with an Achilles tendon injury. This will be the most unstable offensive line the Colts have put on the court since the Andrew Luck era.
Some people think that Wentz’s injury simply means that Taylor has more numbers. Although this sounds logical, it may not happen. With a worse quarterback, such as the current front-runner Jacob Ethan, under the center, offensive efficiency will decrease. This results in less possession time, fewer scoring opportunities, and fewer accurate goals for running backs. The defense will not respect the pass so much, which means more crowded boxes.
Josh Jacobs, Raider (RB17 ADP)
In his two-year career with the Raiders, Jacobs’s results are not worse than RB14. Last season, he ranked third in the league. If he is still a bull, he may crush his current RB17 ADP.
However, the addition of Kenyan Drake is bad news for Jacobs. Although ADP advises fantasy owners to be aware of this, Jacobs’ depravity may be more dramatic than most people think. As Drake succeeds as the main defender of Arizona, he will take on an extraordinary workload. His ability to catch the ball is more impressive than Jacobs, and he is likely to be the main passer of the two. Drake also ranked in the top four in the red zone carry (56) a season ago. Jacobs scored the highest with 64 times, but due to another strong red zone threat on the depth map, we may see Jacobs have fewer goal lines this year.
As far as the current situation is concerned, it is easy to form a 1A/1B method in the backcourt, which exceeds the upper limit of Jacobs.
WR boom or bust
Mike Evans, Pirate (WR13 ADP)
Since entering the league in 2014, Evans has been a fantasy superstar. He has scored 1,000 yards for seven consecutive seasons and consistently ranks among the best in red zone touchdowns.
However, in the WR13 draft he was his highest cap in the draft. In 2022, Evans benefited greatly from the injury problems of Chris Godwin and OJ Howard (missed 4 and 12 games respectively), while Antonio Brown did not appear until the end of the season (the first of the season in week 9 Show). Nevertheless, he saw the lowest point of his career in terms of receiving/game (4.4) and receiving yards/game (62.9). His fantasy production also relies heavily on touchdowns (44.8% of the total fantasy scores come from touchdowns.) In six games last year, he missed three catches. In three games, his distance was less than 11 code.
As mentioned earlier, Godwin and Brown should be ready to play in the first week, and Howard may follow. Nevertheless, Evans is likely to drop to the low-end WR2 or even WR3.
Adam Thielen, Viking (WR17 ADP)
In the past few seasons, Tiron appeared out of thin air and became a fantasy star. Just last year, he completed WR7 with a standard format of 925 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.
But the return is likely to be coming soon. Thielen will enter this season at the age of 31, and Justin Jefferson will become WR1 from the beginning (assuming that his sprained AC joint is not more serious).
Since touchdowns are difficult to predict, you don’t want to draft Tiron based solely on last year’s data. Touchdowns and touchdowns accounted for 46.6% of his total fantasy points.Throughput should In the ideal world of head coach Mike Zimmer, as TE Irv Smith Jr. prepares to take a step towards a higher target share, it is difficult to count Thielen in an extreme number of goals again.
Will Fuller, Dolphin (WR40 ADP)
Throughout his career, Fuller has been a prosperous or depressed candidate. He has shown the brilliance of WR1, but due to injury and lack of stability, he is not a reliable choice. Do you know who looks like a Fuller clone? His own new teammate Jaylen Waddell. Is there really room for two almost identical players on the court? They are all large dynamic machines without an impressive target share.
On his WR40 ADP, you may think it’s okay to choose him, especially if he is your WR4, but knowing in advance that he will make you feel cheated every other week (especially in the first week, he will be in the last game Serve during the game) His six PED games are suspended). In a Miami offense with a strong receiver and unproven quarterback, Fuller is more risky than ever.
TE boom or bust
Dallas Godet, Hawks (TE7 ADP)
Goedert’s ADP rose rapidly with his offseason hype. This is mainly due to the assumption that Zach Ertz will be traded, but it seems unlikely now.
Last season, Ertz defeated Goedert, despite only seven points. Goedert has 10 catches, 189 yards and two TDs, but if Ertz appears on the roster in Week 1, he may not completely withdraw from the rotation. If Goedert cannot dominate the fast break share, how can we justify selecting him in the top 10 in this position? And, as mentioned earlier, the quarterback feels very unstable in Philadelphia.
Defense/special forces boom or bust
Saints (D/ST10 ADP)
A season ago, New Orleans’ defense/special team broke into the top seven in fantasy, but even if it plays well, it is likely to see fantasy production decline.
All this has to do with the Saints’ offense. Can we continue to assume that the Saints’ offensive efficiency will decrease because Taysom Hill or Jameis Winston will perform well in 16 games? For defensive/special teams, low offensive efficiency means something-worse position on the field (giving up more points), less lead (fewer passing opportunities, INT), more Fatigue (allowing more big offenses) and fewer kick-offs (less chances of returning to touchdowns). Do these factors sound like a good way to fantasize about success? You can decide.
