Rest of Season Rankings

2022 Fantasy Football Rankings powered by FantasyPros

Players to Buy Low

Javonte Williams (RB – DEN)
The box score suggests Melvin Gordon is a thorn in Javonte Williams’s side. Peeling back the orange, we see that Williams played 65% of the snaps and saw 6/6 snaps inside the 10-yard line in Week2. He is currently the RB14 in PPR leagues, but if he scores a touchdown in Week 1 instead of fumbling, he is the RB6. If you have Miles Sanders, try to package his volume-driven start for a stud RB1 in Williams.

David Montgomery (RB – CHI)
After an awful Week 1 performance, averaging only 1.5 yards per rushing attempt, David Montgomery bounced back in Week 2. He averaged 8.1 yards per rushing attempt and scored 14.6 half-point PPR fantasy points despite not finding the end zone. More importantly, he played 80% of the snaps, out-snapping Khalil Herbert 33-8. The Chicago passing attack has struggled the first two games, meaning Montgomery could earn more work over the next few weeks. If you have Jeff Wilson, I would happily trade him away for Montgomery right now.

Courtland Sutton (WR – DEN)
Sutton is sitting at WR19 in PPR scoring through two weeks, having scored 3.9 less points than his expected points would indicate. You could say he’s underachieved, sure, but a more reasonable thought process would suggest that he has additional room to grow after looking good to start the season. On top of that, the offense has tons of room to grow and create additional opportunities for Sutton. There’s no doubt who the No. 1 wide receiver for this team is, but he may benefit even further from Jeudy’s rib injury. I would look to trade somebody like Rashod Bateman for Sutton. I like Bateman, but he’s leading the league with 27.8 yards per catch and will certainly see a dip in efficiency in the Ravens offense.

Diontae Johnson (WR – PIT)
Johnson has been underwhelming so far, and the Steelers’ offense has not looked good. However, he’s in the top 10 in targets among wide receivers, and 31.4% of Trubisky’s passes have been intended for him. With that kind of volume, it’s only a matter of time before Johnson starts to produce, and he’s shown he can be a fantasy stud without a dominant QB the past few seasons with a declining Ben Roethlisberger throwing to him. Trade for him now before he starts scoring TDs and enjoy the consistent production.

Garrett Wilson (WR – NYJ)
Right now, Garrett Wilson is a player on the cusp of a breakout. He had almost a 31% target share in Week 2 and has a target share over 26% so far this season. He is looking every bit the first-round WR we hoped he would be. The slight concern is what will happen when Zach Wilson comes back into this offense. However, looking at what the coaches are asking of Wilson, he is well on his way to being the star rookie wide receiver in 2022. I will be trying to get him now because I fear that in a few weeks, it might be too late. I would be looking to move someone like D.J. Moore or D.K Metcalf for Wilson right now for Wilson plus another piece.

CeeDee Lamb (WR – DAL)
Plenty of fantasy managers were concerned with how CeeDee Lamb would perform without Dak Prescott. However, the target volume is still there with 26% and 34% target shares across the first two games, including being targeted 11 times in Week 2, when he caught seven passes for 75 yards. There is uncertainty about when Dak will return, but now is the ideal time to obtain a WR1 with a buy-low opportunity. When Dak does come back, he will have Michael Gallup back and enjoy the emergence of Noah Brown. Combine those factors with Lamb enjoying more open looks and take another step climbing the WR rankings as the schedule lightens up for the Cowboys toward the end of the season.
Dennis Sosic (Fantasy Six Pack)

J.K. Dobbins (RB – BAL)
Some fantasy managers may be getting frustrated with the Ravens and the way they’ve been playing it safe with Dobbins thus far. However, the Ravens just had an ugly loss that saw them blow a huge fourth-quarter lead to the Dolphins, a game in which a good running back would have helped kill the clock in the fourth. I’d expect Dobbins to be back soon, so your buy window is shrinking, so I’d act quickly.
