Top 2022 Fantasy football picks

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

WR DK Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks: After first gaining notoriety for his imposing physique, Metcalf has proven himself as an emerging star in this league with 216 catches for 3,170 yards and 29 touchdowns over his first three years. Last season, he posted a career-high 12 touchdown receptions, but Gibbs is concerned about his ability to replicate that production given the significant downgrade in target quality he’ll be facing.

“Metcalf was notably less efficient across the board in 2021. It wasn’t just a product of Russell Wilson missing time. In fact, Metcalf averaged 2.59 yards per route run in the four games without Wilson and 1.82 in games with Russ. He just wasn’t nearly as efficient as I would have expected with such large target and air yardage shares available to him,” Gibbs told SportsLine. “With Seattle projecting to be one of the least efficient passing offenses in the NFL, it’s unlikely that Metcalf’s yard per route run rate returns to the two-plus range in 2021.”

RB Damien Harris, New England Patriots: Harris has been the primary short-yardage worker in New England for two years now when healthy and he’s done well in that role, as he’s averaged 4.8 yards per carry on 339 rushes during that span. However, the touchdown production got a little out of whack from his first season as a starter to his second and history tells us that what we saw in 2021 isn’t sustainable.

“Damien Harris scored two rushing touchdowns on 137 carries in 2020. In 2021, he turned 202 rushing attempts into 15 scores,” Gibbs said. “He had a massive 42.8% touchdown dependency rate in 2021, the second-highest rate among RBs with at least 200 rushing attempts over the past 10 seasons. Only four backs had a rate above 40 percent during that time. None ever repeated it.” Get the full Fantasy football draft guide over at SportsLine.
