Is Gabriel Davis A League Winner in 2022? (Fantasy Football)
At the end of every fantasy football season, several players seem to be on every championship roster. Some of those players are the usual suspects you see getting selected in the first few rounds of every draft. But there are usually at least a handful of players who were afterthoughts during draft season and were selected late or not at all in most standard formats.
Those players are what we like to call “League Winners.” League Winners are those low-cost players who produce more for fantasy managers than what their cost suggested during drafts. These can be household names like Cooper Kupp or Deebo Samuel who exploded onto the scene with breakout seasons, or they can be players like Cordarrelle Patterson who weren’t even being drafted.
Being able to identify these players can, well, put you in a position to win your league. Our own Andrew Erickson recently took a look at 10 potential League Winners for the 2022 Fantasy Football season.

Gabriel Davis (WR – BUF)
The Bills eventually saw the error of their ways of playing a dusty Emmanuel Sanders and unleashed Davis from Week 14 onward.
The second-year wideout averaged 19.8 fantasy points per game (PPR) and 16.0 expected fantasy points per game in his last six games as a full-time player.
As a strong bet to earn the No. 2 wide receiver job come opening day, Davis has a legitimate shot to be a league-winner in a Josh Allen-led offense in 2022. Despite being a part-time player only the last two seasons, the former UCF Knight ranks top five in the NFL in total end-zone targets. Davis is also just one of two WRs to rank top five in yards per catch over the last two seasons.
