2022 Fantasy Football Sleepers

2022 Fantasy Football Sleepers (May 15):

This is a list of my favorite 2022 fantasy football sleepers - underrated players who are going way later than they should (ADP end eighth round or lower.) The Average Draft Position (ADP) is found on FantasyFootballCalculator.com.

The sleepers from 2018 were a hit, as some of the top players on the list were Phillip Lindsay, Chris Godwin, Kenny Golladay, George Kittle and Patrick Mahomes. My top 2019 sleeper was Devin Singletary (prior to the LeSean McCoy release), but the others, aside from Preston Williams, weren't so great. The 2020 list had some nice hits, with Justin Jefferson being on this page. The 2021 sleepers were a bit of a letdown, thanks in part to the Bills using Emmanuel Sanders over Gabriel Davis until the playoffs.

  1. Gabriel Davis Gabriel Davis, WR, Bills. ADP: 9.05.

    I had Gabriel Davis listed as my No. 3 sleeper last year. That looked dumb when the Bills used Emmanuel Sanders over him to begin the season. As it turns out, the Bills were incorrect after all because Davis was a monster down the stretch, including his four-touchdown performance in the playoffs.

  2. Saquon Barkley Saquon Barkley, RB, Giants. ADP: 4.06.

    I had Saquon Barkley as one of my top busts last year. He tore his ACL in 2020, so he wasn't going to be 100 percent in 2021. Now two years removed from the knee tear, Barkley is ready to be 100 percent, and he'll run behind an offensive line that was upgraded this offseason.

  3. Kadarius Toney Kadarius Toney, WR, Giants. ADP: 11.06.

    There's been some negativity regarding Kadarius Toney recently. There have been allegations of off-the-field issues, and there's a chance he could be traded. If nothing happens, Toney could be in for a big year. He looked great in brief action as a rookie, and the Giants' passing game should be better in 2022 because of the upgrades made to the offensive line.

  4. Christian Kirk Christian Kirk, WR, Jaguars. ADP: 11.02.

    Jacksonville's huge contract given to Christian Kirk was widely panned by everyone. The amount of money was ridiculous, but the fact remains that Jacksonville has big plans in mind for Kirk. With Trevor Lawrence bound to make a big leap in his second year, Kirk could have his best season yet. He seems like a bargain in the 11th round.

  5. RhamondreStevenson Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, Patriots. ADP: 11.09.

    I can't believe Rhamondre Stevenson's ADP is so low. He could definitely lead the Patriot running backs in carries this year. He's a much better value than Damien Harris and his ADP of 4.06.

  6. Raheem Mostert Raheem Mostert, RB, Dolphins. ADP: 10.04.

    I got burned by Raheem Mostert's horrible durability last year, but I did so in the fifth round. He's much better value in the 10th round. Mostert will probably get hurt at some point, but he'll be productive when healthy.

  7. Tony Pollard Tony Pollard, RB, Cowboys. ADP: 12+.

    Tony Pollard was the better running back in Dallas last year. Ezekiel Elliott looks done, so I'm a fan of getting Pollard onto my roster late in the draft.

  8. Dalton Dalton Schultz, TE, Cowboys. ADP: 11.11.

    I can't believe Dalton Schultz has a late 11th-round ADP. He could end up being a top-five fantasy tight end, as Amari Cooper is gone and Michael Gallup is recovering from an injury.
