2022 Fantasy football draft prep: Rankings, NFL rookies, strategy, top 150 players by proven experts

New Orleans wide receiver Michael Thomas was limited to seven games in 2020 due to an ankle injury, which wound up keeping him sidelined for the entire 2021 season as well. He set the NFL’s single season record for receptions (149) and led the league in receiving yards (1,725) in 2019. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Thomas is expected to be “cleared at some point early in (training) camp.” Will he fly under the radar as one of the 2022 Fantasy football sleepers once he returns? How should you approach him during your 2022 Fantasy football draft prep?

New Orleans averaged the fewest passing yards (187.4) in the NFL last season, but could the return of Thomas lead to quarterback Jameis Winston being one of the strongest 2022 Fantasy football picks?

Top 2022 Fantasy football picks

The Fantasy football draft bible includes 2022 Fantasy football breakouts you’ll need to know before you go on the clock including:

WR Jalen Tolbert, Dallas Cowboys: Dallas traded wide receiver Amari Cooper to the Browns and lost Cedric Wilson to Miami in free agency. The Cowboys could also be without Michael Gallup to open the season as he recovers from a torn ACL. They are counting on Tolbert to step up and make an immediate impact as a replacement this season. He could wind up being the second option behind young star CeeDee Lamb, giving him a high ceiling this year.

“Tolbert brings an NFL-ready route tree and an overwhelmingly positive analytical profile and could immediately step into a significant target share in the Amari Cooper-less Dallas offense,” Gibbs told SportsLine. “I’m aggressively targeting him as an upside pick in the later rounds.”

WR David Bell, Cleveland Browns: He finished third in the FBS in receiving yards on the outside and second in total forced missed tackles among his draft class, so he is ready to step right into Cleveland’s offense. Bell should be able to find his role alongside Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Anthony Schwartz.

“The Browns have a ton of vacated short-yardage targets up for grabs with Landry and Austin Hooper no longer around, and Bell should have every opportunity to soak up a good portion of those,” Gibbs said. Get the full Fantasy football draft guide over at SportsLine.
