Choices for the first two rounds

While the seasonal fantasy football drafts seem a long way off, the best 2022 football leagues and magic leagues are just beginning to take off. At the very least, it’s time to start ranking your expectations and ratings.

With that in mind, I’ve tried to mock how the first two rounds of fantasy football leagues will play out this year.

First takeaway: I hate it, especially the first round.

[Set, hut, hike! Create or join a fantasy football league now!]

It was hard to find 12 desirable picks to put in the first round especially considering we are apparently at an inflection point when running backwards. Many of the best talents from the past three years are already on the cusp of aging and we are short of conceivable youngsters to take their places. Getting the middle rounds right will be crucial this year if the first rounds prove to be as choppy as I think they might end.

Yes, I hate how this first phantom came about. I am ready and eager to change my mind/style as summer approaches.

1.01 – Jonathan Taylor, right back, Indianapolis Colts

The combination of Taylor’s age, dominant 2021 season, and potential quarterback upgrade makes him an obvious first overall pick. Injuries can hit anyone in this situation but no player at the top of the running board inspires this much relief.

1.02 – Copper Cup, WR, Los Angeles Rams

Unlikely to replicate last year’s Triple Crown performance, Kupp is still in a position to command significant influence targets to commit a major attack.

1.03 – Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings

I’d be zero percent shocked if Jefferson took another leap and became WR1 overall this season. Jefferson, who has a growing talent on an upward trajectory for rockets, has a similar view of the Cobb this season.

1.04 – Christian McCaffrey, RB, Carolina Panthers

It wouldn’t be nice to do so but you’ll have to hate clicking McCaffrey in this year’s top five picks. The recent injury history is horrifying but his ceiling and floor combination is too rare in this setting to be missed.

1.05 – Austin Eckler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers

Ekeler has cut more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage twice in the past three years and is coming off the top 20 of his career. The current Chargers training staff did not place any strange size-based restrictions on his role in the recording area. This gives us comfort when chasing this roof for another season.

1.06 – Nagy Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers

Investing in Steelers offense led by either Mitchell Trubesky or ascendant Kenny Beckett Not the most comfortable suggestion. But Harris is one of the few defenders who has tickets for more than 80 percent of his team’s backhand touches. It may not always be a nice experience but the numbers will be there.

1.07 – Derek Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans

Even within the deciduous crops that look particularly rocky this year, Henry seems to me more choppy than most crops. You could easily tell yourself a story that last year’s injury was just a passing picture on a stellar track, and he went straight back to the top scorers in the center in December.

It’s easy to visualize the negative maximum given the amount of volume he’s been dealing with since 2019. For what it’s worth, the Titans are clearly betting on the previous result as they doubled down on their Henry-focused identity in racing first every outside move.

1.08 – Dalvin Cook, RB, Minnesota Vikings

Just like Henry, Cook has already reached a point in a career of decline where we begin to weigh the expected workload against his age and their history. However, Cook appears to be the outstanding attacking linebacker who’s likely to have bumped into the coaching department and is essentially bringing back an ecosystem of talented players with skill.

1.09 – Stefon Diggs, WR, Buffalo Bills

Diggs is off over 160 consecutive target seasons and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t walk right over the moon in the sort of Alpha target sharing again. The Bills are light on the traffic catchers installed behind them, despite teasing the fantasy community Gabriel Davis. Diggs should land somewhere between 2020 and 2021 in the efficiency division this season.

1.10 – Ja’Marr Chase, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Don’t think about it.

Ignore things like, “Chase had x percent of his Fantasy points coming in only on a few plays,” or other loud coins. We should be thrilled to bet on cultivating a young elite who receives talent associated with an exciting situation like Chase’s setup in Cincy.

1.11 – Travis Kelsey, TE, Kansas City Chiefs

Kelsey has averaged 141.3 goals over the past four seasons and could easily clear that mark in 2022 given changes in the Kansas City Corps. Kelce will be the only, proven and familiar face of Patrick Mahomes this chapter.

1.12 – Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers

I try to find as many reasons as possible to be ahead of the ADP Aaron Jones this chapter. The Packers have always been more difficult than you think and due to the massive opening in their target quota after Davant Adams Trade, Jones can put the highest functional level in appearance. It’s a perfect choice when cornering.

2.01 – Joe Mixon, right back, Cincinnati Bengals

Mixon appears to have successfully slipped into the “safe but boring” era of his career as a retrograde fantasy. Absolutely fine. He’s a worker at the center of a good offense.

2.02 – Davante Adams, WR, Las Vegas Riders

The wide receiver is still a top five but not a fancy first-round pick that sounds like Adams’ fitting adjustment in a post-Packers world. Adams is an elite individual talent and Derek Carr It is far from some slack in the middle.

2.03 – Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns

There is always some frustration with Chubb because of Cream Hunt Presence (although it’s not a 2022 list lock) but the upside is worth the worry. Chubb is an amazing talent and leadership of one of the best accelerating ecosystems in the NFL.

2.04 – D’Andre Swift, RB, Detroit Lions

Swift cleared 1,000 yards of scrimmage in just 13 games last season. He will have more competition for goals this season but should remain high in the Lions’ receiving rankings. Swift checks a lot of chests that we want in our fantasy backs.

2.05 – Mike Evans, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Evans does nothing but stack touchdowns and 1,000-yard seasons on a yearly basis. with Antonio Brown gold and Chris Goodwin Still recovering from an ACL rupture in late 2021, Evans could see his highest goal total from Tom Brady era.

2.06 – Mark Andrews, TE, Baltimore Ravens

Andrews wrestled for the TE1 title away from Travis Kelsey Last season and I will pay it again in 2022. I buy all rashod pitman Hype but still, with Marquis Brown Andrews must own a leadership share of the Ravens’ goals. I’m not interested in his splits with/without Lamar Jackson.

2.07 – Alvin Camara, right back, New Orleans Saints

Some concerns about a possible suspension keep Camara away from the first-round discussion. Other than that, he looks pretty good this season especially since we no longer need to worry about goofs Tsum Hill Distributing things in the middle of the season is a crime.

2.08 – Leonard Fournette, right back, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

There is no reason to assume that Fournette is facing a change of role from what he was asked to do last season. Escape who thrived in this kind of triple role, heavy receiver on a led attack Tom Brady It is a fictional selection from Round 2. A simple case.

2.09 – CeeDee Lamb, WR, Dallas Cowboys

Amary Cooper Leaving town is a big problem for the lamb look. Michael Gallup It is also likely that the season will begin to recover from a ruptured ACL. We haven’t seen Lamb dominate goals in Dallas yet, but everything has been set for him to do so this season.

2.10 – Debo Samuel, WR, San Francisco 49ers

Anyone making projections this year will struggle with Samuel. You can’t realistically give him the target quota he’s kept in weeks 1 to 7 and he’s unlikely – or unwilling – to deal with the rushing business he’s thrived on.

There is, too Tree Lance Questions and its contract status. Samuel’s crack at the end of the second round despite his star-studded 2021 looks fair, all things considered.

2.11 – T. Higgins, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Don’t miss Ja’Marr Chase’s The height allows you to forget about Higgins. If you include the playoffs, Higgins finished last season with 1,400 yards and eight scores. That’s not an outrageous outcome for him in the upcoming regular season. He’s a very good young receiver.

2.12 – Terek Hill, WR, Miami Dolphin

I went fairly chalky with Hill at the end of the second round. I really wanted to go AJ Brown in this spot. Moving to Philly is not a devaluation. Just to be a little more daring, I thought I’d give this a place to one of my all-time favorites for wide receivers this year, Michael Bateman. Dripping talent perfectly, Pittman is a true number one receiver in every sense of the word, and is now ready to play with a consistent midfielder.

I will regret choosing Hill the moment I submit this article.
