Brandon Funston
The Athletic
6th-most catches among RBs over past 3 seasons (148), and is in line for career-high receptions to help fill void left by Davante Adams' departureNotched 18 TDs in 15 games in 2021 and, while regression expectations are fair, that could be mostly offset by a volume increase with Chase Edmonds gone
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Aaron Jones is an absolute target and receptions monster when Davante Adams has missed time in the past. Without Green Bay's No. 1 WR, Jones has averaged close to 4.5 catches, 6 targets, 48.5 receiving yards and 23 PPR points per game. Hard to ignore the Packers RB1 as a dynamite selection in Round 2 with multiple top-5 finishes on his resume.The Cardinals re-signed their RB1 from a season ago to a three-year, $21 million extension this offseason, locking him in as their guy for the foreseeable future. It's a great signing for fantasy football because it puts Conner firmly in the top-12 running back conversation, especially with Chase Edmonds landing in Miami. The ex-Steelers running back finished the 2021 season tied for second in goal-line carries and third in touchdowns (18). Conner received extensive work in the passing game with Edmonds out of the lineup from Weeks 9-14 and Week 18. Conner averaged 26.2 fantasy points and 5.5 targets per game in those six games while running a route on 61% of the Cardinals' dropbacks. His RB finishes in half-point scoring during those weeks: RB1, RB16, RB8, RB11, RB2, and RB3.
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Aaron Jones finished last season as the RB11 in fantasy points per game despite ceding more work to A.J. Dillon as the year moved along. In Weeks 14-17, Jones saw 38 carries, three red zone opportunities, and ran 76 routes. In that same sample of games, Dillon gobbled up 45 carries with 13 red zone looks and 54 routes run. With Davante Adams gone, Jones could save his fantasy scoring with a heavier target load. Since 2019 in the seven games Jones has played without Adams on the field, he's seen his targets bump from 3.9 per game to 6.7. His receiving yardage also increased from 21.6 to 55.4 per game. While he might not have top 3-5 upside anymore if Dillon remains involved, Jones could still be a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2.James Conner will be the Cardinal's dependable workhorse again in 2022. In Weeks 9-14, he never played less than 77% of the snaps averaging 21.8 touches and 114.4 total yards per game. He was the RB2 in fantasy behind only Jonathan Taylor in that five-game span. His 18 total touchdowns seem hard to replicate at first glance, but it isn't. Last season Arizona was eighth in red zone rushing rate. Conner has minimal competition on the depth chart that could take him off the field on passing downs or near paydirt.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Sneaky benefactor of Adams leaving - has averaged nearly 26 FPs per game without Adams compared to 16 withBest-case scenario was landing back in Arizona, where Conner was the RB8 in 2021... and now without Chase Edmonds. No meaningful rookie competition added. Perfection.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Jones lost some of his fantasy value with the emergence of A.J. Dillon, but Jones also had 1,190 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns in the fantasy season. Jones figures to be the focal point of their offense with Davante Adams no longer in the mix.Conner was able to stay healthy platooning with Chase Edmonds and Conner finished the fantasy season with 1,034 yards from scrimmage and 16 touchdowns. Conner is unlikely to duplicate that TD production in 2022, but if he stays in Arizona, he should be a RB2 with upside.
