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:
RB Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears: Herbert was a sixth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, but worked his way into being David Montgomery‘s primary backup after an impressive camp. He then took advantage of a four-game stretch in which Montgomery was battling injury by producing 388 yards from scrimmage. With Montgomery established as the previous coaching staff’s workhorse, Herbert didn’t have a large role when the former was at full strength, but a new coaching staff means new opportunity for the Kansas and Virginia Tech product.
“Herbert is one of the best late-round RBs you can target as a sleeper, as he should get the opportunity to play more this year when Montgomery is healthy while also showing the ability to serve as a lead back if Montgomery is ever injured,” White told SportsLine. “He also enjoyed great success on zone runs, which should be the backbone of Getsy’s rushing scheme.”
RB Tyler Allgeier, Atlanta Falcons: Allgeier produced an impressive 3,104 scrimmage yards and 36 touchdowns over his final two seasons at Brigham Young and was drafted in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft. He’s already being mentioned as one of the 2022 Fantasy football breakouts because of the situation he was drafted into. The Falcons turned Cordarrelle Patterson into their RB1 last season and he produced impressively, but the wide receiver convert is at his best as a receiving threat.
Deploying Allgeier as an early-down back would ease the pressure on Patterson considerably and that potential for between-the-tackles work has certainly piqued White’s interest. “Allgeier is a name to file away as a potential feature back at some point this season,” White said.
