How to Connect the Late Rounds (2022 Fantasy Football)

Building a championship roster is done at every turn throughout the draft. While Fantasy Football Draft isn’t the only ingredient to roll out first place hardware at the end of the season, dialing is still essential. Whether you’re placing your bets on breakouts or expecting a repeat stellar production with premium picks, there are a variety of ways to take your draft. In this series, I’ll explain how to attack every fantasy football draft stage. With the capitalization of early picks, the value of mining in the middle rounds or today’s content, the next rounds are aimed at attacking and upside down.

Fantasy Football Redraft Draft Kit

Dart Throws: Upside Down. Upside down. Upside down.

Over the past two seasons, 19 players have been drafted outside the top 100 players, and have broken the top 24 running backs, wide receivers or top 12 title endings in fantasy points per game. Some are linked to an increased chance of injury, while others are supreme talents that emerge at the top of the depth chart pile. The idea is real and the same when selecting players late in the draft. Shoot to the moon. This means creating “one injury distance” types that can see huge increases in their roles if the dice roll. Other target players include talented rookies who are not getting the same steam as famous names.

Some of the players who fit these criteria are James Cook, Ramandre Stevenson, Sky Moore, Isiah Spiller, Khalil Herbert and Tyrion Davis-Price, to name a few.

Target third-party options on better offenses

The fantasy football industry is keen on targeting teams that light up the scoreboard all season, but sometimes we lose players who play important roles in the red zone and overall offense. Be prepared to explore this range of results in your drafts, especially if you play in multiple leagues. It gives you the outs to your fantasy portfolio as a whole. We know we hit some popular sleepers and late-round picks. Embrace the difference in these later rounds.

Below are the top 12 teams in points per game in 2021 and red-zone scoring efforts per game.

While exploring the range of results with these top offenses, here are some ADP values ​​to consider when looking outside the top 100 players: (ADP per underdog fantasy)

Rondale Moore (119th overall) > Zach Ertz (109th overall)

Jamison Crowder (129th overall) > Dawson Knox (102nd overall)

Jalen Tolbert (143rd overall) > Michael Gallup (115th overall)

Robert Tonian (140th overall) > Allen Lazard (91st overall)

Alec Pierce (157th overall) / Paris Campbell (196th overall) > Nyheim Hines (138th overall)

Sky Moore (89th overall) > Juju Smith-Schuster (57th overall)

Russell Gage (83rd overall) > Chris Godwin (55th overall)

Austin Hooper (200th overall) > Robert Woods (106th overall)

Never draft a D / ST or kicker unless required by league settings

It sounds common sense at this point with fantasy football draft methods, but we still see fantasy managers commit this cardinal sin every year. Stream both positions. There is little reason to be drafted unless necessary. Instead, take two more training camp flyers with your final two options. If none hits, you have invested coins in both, so it’s easy to send them to the waiver wire. If the injuries increase before the 1st week and the new opportunities present themselves, or if the camp wars have ended strangely with the Dark Horse winner, you have hit the lottery.

Efficiency sweethearts chasing

Efficiency is a wonderful fantasy marvel. Breathe it out. Drink. The essay is about competent players who take advantage of their chances (with the assumption of semi-rational coaching) to continue to look more at offense. It can also be applied to elderly veterans as the consensus is ready to toss in an early grave.

Below are some of the players that may surprise you with their finishes in each of the route yards they ran last year in their various position groups created outside of the Top 100 players. With each position, the reduction in the minimum targets was 20, which gave an interesting mix of young people and veterans (per PFF, range on campus). If yards are not your cup of tea for every route run, the process can easily be applied to the efficiency metric of your choice.

Running backwards

JD McKissic (fifth, 182nd overall)

Drake of Kenya (sixth, 212nd overall)

Ramandre Stevenson (eighth, 117th overall)

Kenneth Gainwell (14th, 158th overall)

Wide receivers

Kadarius Tony (14th, ADP 94th overall)

Kendrick Bourne (17th, ADP 192nd overall)

Julio Jones (28th, ADP 194th overall)

Jarvis Landry (33rd, ADP 125th overall)

Tight ends

Albert Okwugbunum (fifth, 146th overall)

Dan Arnold (tenth, 216th overall)

David Njoku (11th, 157th overall)

Using the same logic, some rushers post eye-popping numbers in yards after every attempt (at least 50 carries, per PFF) to consider your final picks, especially in the deep leagues.

Craig Reynolds (third, ADP N / A)

Samaje Perine (Fourth, 215th)

K’Shan Vaughan (sixth, 215th)

D’Arnest Johnson (Tenth, 212nd)

Derrick Gore (17th, 215th)

Post-hype sleepers gobble up

The hope and hope of emerging players gets hotter and heavier each season. We annually analyze the continued ascent of young players; Sometimes it comes out, and sometimes it doesn’t. When the hype meter turns on the season, the fantasy football consensus buries many of these players next year. The NFL landscape changes every season, and we can’t get married to our bias because we beat the player we loved. If the process of evaluating a player from the jump is good and the talent is real, it could be a year ahead of the breakout we foresee.

Below are the players who were drafted into the top 130 picks in fantasy drafts that saw their ADPs decline from the previous season. Every player is worth considering adding to your player pool with the post-hype discount we get to enjoy in 2022.

Chase Edmonds 2021 ADP 60th overall vs. 2022 ADP 100th overall

Brandon Eyuk 2021 ADP 53rd overall vs. 2022 ADP 94th overall

Chase Claypool 2021 ADP 61st overall vs. 2022 ADP 107th overall

Joanne Smith 2021 ADP 130th overall vs. 2022 ADP 215th overall
