Top Dynasty Values to Target (2022 Fantasy Football)
The 2021 fantasy football season is in the books and congratulations to fantasy managers who took home their fantasy championships. To those who didn’t win this year, now is the time to evaluate your roster and see how you can improve your team during the off-season to bounce back in 2022. For those that play Dynasty, it’s time to find those players who might’ve had a down season and snag them while their value is depreciated. I’ll be looking at the current Dynasty rankings at Fantasy Pros and identifying a few players who are nice values entering the off-season.
Carter had a productive season for the lowly Jets even splitting playing time with Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman. The 2021 rookie totaled 964 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns while missing three games during the 2021 season. In games with more than 10 carries, Carter scored double-digit fantasy points in all of them, including a 30-point game against the Bengals in Week 8.
Zach Wilson also improved and had his moments during the 2nd half of the season, which bodes well for Carter next season. Carter showed enough this season to earn the starting role next year and is a great value in all dynasty formats. Fantasy Pros ECR he is currently ranked as the RB27, while he should be ranked inside the top-20. Take advantage of his current ranking because it’ll only go up from here.
Coming into the season, I didn’t want any part of the Buffalo backfield. Zach Moss and Matt Breida seemed to cap the upside of Singletary, and it just seemed like a headache I didn’t want to divulge in. From Weeks 14-18, Singeltary was the RB2 overall while averaging 19,7 PPG during that stretch. This league-winning stretch didn’t increase his value though, as he is still the RB38 in Fantasy Pros ECR.
Until his value increases, this is a good opportunity to buy this off-season. Moss doesn’t seem like a big factor and the Bills are willing to keep Singletary as their lead back. He’s being valued as an RB4 right now, and he could be a solid RB2 for the next 3-4 seasons.
I’m surprised Mooney hasn’t moved up further in the dynasty rankings, but here we are. Mooney finished as the WR23 in fantasy this year on a bad Chicago Bears team. Allen Robinson was one of the biggest fantasy busts this season, which led Mooney to have a solid season. Justin Fields first read seemed to always be Mooney and he made big plays downfield. He totaled 1,055 receiving yards and four touchdowns on the season, and this is just the beginning and he’s a great value entering the off-season.
It seems as though I’m all in on Bills players this off-season. Davis had another solid season for the Bills in 2021. While the yards or receptions weren’t as great as some other WRs, the touchdowns were consistent with his rookie season. He’s caught a total of 13 touchdowns in his first two seasons, which is 2nd on the team right behind Stefon Diggs. Davis is hovering around 62-63 targets in his first two seasons, but expect that number to increase. Emmanuel Sanders will likely be out, so Davis will see his playing time increase. For the majority of the season, he couldn’t crack 50% of the snaps, but towards the end of the season, he got over 80% of the snaps and had 43 yards and a touchdown, 85 yards, and two touchdowns in Week 15.
Davis can be acquired very cheaply right now and he has a very good chance at becoming the WR2 for the Bills next season. He should be a target for your dynasty rosters if you don’t already have him.
