Round 4 One-Sentence Summaries
ADP Player Team Position ADP One-Sentence Summary
37 David Montgomery CHI RB-17 4.01 David Montgomery was quietly one of the most-used running backs last year, notching the second-highest snap share at the position; his volume led him to finish the year as a top-12 RB.
38 D.J. Moore CAR WR-15 4.02 Moore will have the best quarterback of his career when Baker Mayfield strolls into town, but Moore will struggle to find additional opportunity, as he ranked fifth in air yards and sixth in targets last year.
39 Darren Waller LV TE-4 4.03 Darren Waller, despite the Raiders gaining Davante Adams, should remain one of the most-utilized tight ends in the league; despite missing six games last year, he ranked sixth in TE air yards the year after ranking second.
40 Cam Akers LAR RB-18 4.04 Cam Akers is facing a historic season coming off of his Achilles tear, but before the Achilles tear, he ranked outside the top-30 in yards per touch, juke rate, and yards created per touch while finishing outside the top-20 in rushing yards over expectation per carry.
41 Diontae Johnson PIT WR-16 4.05 Everyone agrees that Mitchell Trubisky is a quarterback upgrade, and unless you’re trying to get attention, everyone agrees that Diontae Johnson is the best receiver on the Steelers; somehow, these two thoughts have combined to seeing him lose eight spots from his WR8 finish in 2021.
42 George Kittle SF TE-5 4.06 George Kittle gets a new QB in 2022, and we all hope it can even out the boom-bust nature of having the man on your roster; he finished inside the top two at the position four times and outside the top 24 four times in 2022.
43 Terry McLaurin WAS WR-17 4.07 Terry McLaurin was one of the most-utilized wide receivers in 2021, notching the fourth-most air yards… but also the third-most unrealized air yards, meaning that he still has room to grow with Carson Wentz in 2022.
44 Travis Etienne JAX RB-19 4.08 We have no idea what to expect from Travis Etienne thanks to his Lisfranc injury, but camp reports are hopeful and people are whispering “rookie year Alvin Kamara” in his range of outcomes.
45 Mike Williams LAC WR-18 4.09 Mike Williams famously has 1,000 yards, ten touchdown upside, but the Chargers will need to use him as they did in the first five games of 2021 (10 targets, 6 catches, 94 yards per game) and not the subsequent five games (5 targets, 3 catches, 47 yards per game) to see him reach it.
46 Lamar Jackson BAL QB-4 4.10 Prior to his season-ending injury, which happened on a regular play inside the pocket and not rushing, Lamar Jackson averaged 22.23 fantasy points per game; the QB3 last year, Tom Brady, averaged 22 points per game.
47 DK Metcalf SEA WR-19 4.11 D.K. Metcalf finished 2021 as the WR23 in PPR points, is on the receiving end of the biggest QB downgrade in the NFL this year, and gained four spots in the rankings; it just doesn’t make sense.
48 Antonio Gibson WAS RB-20 4.12 Gibson is hemmed in on all sides by J.D. McKissic, Brian Robinson, and the passing game, but he still posted one of the highest usage rates last year after Washington’s bye, averaging 18 carries and 4 targets per game in weeks 10 through 18.
Round 5 One-Sentence Summaries
ADP Player Team Position ADP One-Sentence Summary
49 Josh Jacobs LV RB-21 5.01 Jacobs’ situation is as fluid and unknown as any established runner in the NFL, despite notching the fourth-most carries since entering the league, the Raiders seem hellbent on putting him in a committee with rookie Zamir White.
50 J.K. Dobbins BAL RB-22 5.02 Dobbins suffered an ACL tear last August, and depending on if you ask the Ravens or J.K. Dobbins, he isn’t yet ready to take full action on the tear; it’s a concerning situation to monitor.
51 Breece Hall NYJ RB-23 5.03 Breece Hall deserves to go two rounds higher than this; he’s an ultra-talented rookie with only fourth-round Michael Carter standing between him and dominating touches for an RB-friendly scheme.
52 Kyler Murray ARI QB-5 5.04 Kyler and the Cardinals reached a contract agreement, which means Arizona hopes he will respond to the call of duty this year; Murray has the second-most QB rushing yards and QB rushing touchdowns since entering the league.
53 Elijah Mitchell SF RB-24 5.05 Mitchell was the first 49ers running back under Kyle Shanahan since Carlos Hyde to get more than five games in a year with 15 or more touches (he had 11, including the playoffs, Hyde had 14), but he also missed six games with four different injuries, so durability is a concern.
54 Brandin Cooks HOU WR-20 5.06 Brandin Cooks is annually the most disrespected wide receiver; only one wide receiver in the history of the NFL (Mike Evans) has more 1,000-yard seasons in his first eight years in the league.
55 Courtland Sutton DEN WR-21 5.07 Sutton’s ADP might jump a whole round on the Tim Patrick ACL tear news; he’s the only player in the Denver Broncos’ receiving corps to have a productive NFL season (72 receptions, 1,114 yards, and 6 touchdowns in 2019).
56 Dalton Schultz DAL TE-6 5.08 Schultz ranked sixth in tight end targets last season, and his 104 from 2021 feel like the floor thanks to losing Amari Cooper to Cleveland, Cedrick Wilson to Miami, and James Washington for 6-10 weeks to a foot injury.
57 Joe Burrow CIN QB-6 5.09 Burrow finished 2021 with 971 passing yards and 8 touchdowns in his last two games, but had just 1,100 passing yards and 5 touchdowns in four playoff games following that; this feels like he’s going at his ceiling.
58 Marquise Brown ARI WR-22 5.10 Hollywood Brown traded in Balmore for ‘Zona, and will be the Cardinals’ deep threat receiver; Christian Kirk, who he replaces, had a higher average depth of target than Brown in 2021.
59 Jalen Hurts PHI QB-7 5.11 Jalen Hurts led all quarterbacks in rushing yards (784) and touchdowns (10), and he upgrades from DeVonta Smith and Jalen Reagor to DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown in 2022.
60 Jerry Jeudy DEN WR-23 5.12 Jerry Jeudy gets a lot of the benefit of the doubt thanks to his strong route running and draft pedigree, but has just three top-24 games in 26 career games, and has finished outside the top-36 more than two-thirds of the time.
Round 6 One-Sentence Summaries
ADP Player Team Position ADP One-Sentence Summary
61 Amari Cooper CLE WR-24 6.01 Cooper’s quarterback situation is up in the air, but he faces a need to bounce back from his lowest target figure and lowest yards per target since 2017.
62 T.J. Hockenson DET TE-7 6.02 T.J. Hockenson has over 80 targets per season in his first three years, with a yard per target of 6.9; only eight tight ends in NFL history have 80+ targets per game with a yard per target under seven with only successful consistent fantasy option in there (Greg Olsen).
63 Chris Godwin TB WR-25 6.03 Chris Godwin is coming off of an ACL tear, and the only question mark is health: as I was writing this, I received a notification that he is in padded practice.
64 Allen Robinson LAR WR-26 6.04 Allen Robinson had the worst year of his career (not including when he tore his ACL after one snap), but the entire Chicago Bears franchise had its worst year; now he’s in L.A. with Matthew Stafford… or John Wolford?
65 Amon-Ra St. Brown DET WR-27 6.05 Whether you love him or hate him, he had 119 targets in 2021, and 15 rookie WRs had at least 90 targets since 2016; they averaged 125 targets per game during their sophomore seasons.
66 Tom Brady TB QB-8 6.06 Brady probably hopes he stayed retired when he takes a look at his 80%-new offensive line, with only Tristan Wirfs returning from 2021, it might be hard to not count out Touchdown Tom.
67 A.J. Dillon GB RB-25 6.07 Dillon ranked 22nd in running back touches last year, with 221; lead back Aaron Jones ranked 20th with 223 touches.
68 Darnell Mooney CHI WR-28 6.08 Darnell Mooney’s 140 targets ranked eleventh among wide receivers last year, but a disconnect between him and his QBs saw him finish as WR27; luckily, he should finish with even more targets in 2022 thanks to the disastrous wide receiver room around him.
69 JuJu Smith-Schuster KC WR-29 6.09 JuJu Smith-Schuster finished with 1,426 receiving yards in 2018, and it was the last time he had a competent passing game around him; this was the fourth-most receiving yards per game among WRs age 22 or younger in the Super Bowl Era.
70 Clyde Edwards-Helaire KC RB-26 6.10 CEH had just two goal-line carries in 2021 after receiving 8 in 2020… and four of those were in week one against Houston.
71 Dak Prescott DAL QB-9 6.11 Prescott was one of the most prolific passers last season, throwing the ball at the fourth-highest rate in the league, which led to 4,449 passing yards and 37 passing touchdowns; the weapons disintegrated around him, so it’s an uphill battle to see him repeat this in 2022.
72 Adam Thielen MIN WR-30 6.12 Thielen is consistently poo-pooed as a touchdown-dependent receiver, but he ranked second in targets inside the five in 2020, and eleventh in 2021 (while missing five games).
