2022 Fantasy Football Busts

2022 Fantasy Football Busts (May 15):

This is a list of my top 2022 fantasy football busts - players you should avoid unless they fall far in your draft. The Average Draft Position (ADP) is found on FantasyFootballCalculator.com.

I was dead on with some of my busts over the past four years. My top busts for 2019 were Antonio Brown and Todd Gurley. I had some misses as well, but Brown and Gurley were two players I didn't want to select in the top three rounds. Last year, I asked everyone to avoid Saquon Barkley and Myles Gaskin, though there were two misses.

  1. Ezekiel Elliott Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys. ADP: 2.12.

    Ezekiel Elliott's production has been falling the past two years, and now he'll be running behind an offensive line that lost two starters this offseason.

  2. J.K. Dobbins J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ravens. ADP: 3.05.

    I would like J.K. Dobbins under normal circumstances, but he's coming off a torn ACL. This doesn't completely diqualify Dobbins, but he may not be 100 percent in 2022. It's troubling that John Harbaugh said Dobbins could begin the year on the PUP list. Baltimore tried to sign Melvin Gordon and then went with Mike Davis once Gordon signed with the Broncos.

  3. Chris Godwin Chris Godwin, WR, Buccaneers. ADP: 4.07.

    Chris Godwin will have Tom Brady throwing the ball to him after all, but he could have issues staying on the field, given that he tore his ACL late in the year.

  4. Josh Jacobs Josh Jacobs, RB, Raiders. ADP: 4.12.

    Fantasy Pros has Josh Jacobs being the 13th running back chosen in mock drafts, yet Jacobs has never played a full season and doesn't have a strong offensive line in front of him. Furthermore, the old regime drafted him, and Josh McDaniels may favor a running back he personally obtained (i.e. Zamir White).

  5. Aaron Jones Aaron Jones, RB, Packers. ADP: 3.02.

    Aaron Jones continues to lose touches to A.J. Dillon. I don't hate Jones as much as I did earlier in the offseason because Davante Adams is gone, but he's still being drafted way too early.

  6. RobertWoods 2022 Fantasy Football Busts Robert Woods, WR, Titans. ADP: 6.03.

    Robert Woods is going to have major issues being a consistent fantasy producer in Tennessee. He won't be playing under Sean McVay any longer, so he's in for major regression. Also, don't forget that he's coming off a torn ACL.
