Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Top RB in half PRR Fantasy PPG over past 3 seasons (min. 30 games), but coming off a serious foot injury at his size and age (28) is cause for pauseThe biggest gamble of 2022 drafts: league-winning upside vs. season-ending injury downside
Justin Lampkin
Clock Management Fantasy Football
I am more worried about this than probably any other 1st round pick. we all know the upside Derrick Henry brings to the table, but it seems the big hits and insane workload are beginning to pay a toll on this real life titan. with AJ Brown gone he may somehow face even more stacked boxes.The most dynamic exciting player in the NFL when he is on the field, but can he stay healthy? that's the gamble you have to take with CMC
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Those that faded Derrick Henry as a first-round pick in 2021 received suboptimal results. The Tennessee Titans running back led the position in fantasy PPR points per game (23.4) through eight weeks and bested his 2020 2,000-yard campaign by more than 2.5 PPR points per game. The unicorn running back averaged 29.6 touches per game - seven more than the next closest running back before his injury. And although he didn't play again until the postseason, Henry still finished 15th in the NFL in total touches and as the RB20 overall in just eight games played. No running back better depicts the "volume is king" mantra better than the King himself and his guaranteed volume make him near bulletproof. Coming off an injury-plagued season does raise some concerns about whether Henry's body is going to break down because of his insane workload. And the lack of pass-game usage is a detriment to his value in PPR formats. But it's impossible to ignore his workload opportunity in 2022 within a Titans anemic passing offense. They don't have any reason to not feature him and there are no indications that they are going to stop with him due $15M this season. Seems more likely than not they ride Henry did his contract expires before the 2024 season when he hits age 30.We all know the deal with CMC. When healthy, he's easily the best player in all of fantasy football. He played in four games in 2021 with at least a 50% snap share and his PPR fantasy finishes were RB1, RB3, RB4 and RB3. McCaffrey averaged 26 fantasy points per game. Considering the extent of CMC's injuries have not resulted in major surgeries or completely torn ligaments, I like him bouncing back to form in 2022. I like that the Panthers are already putting him in preseason bubble wrap to make sure he's full-go for Week 1. Four of the Panthers' 5 wins last season came when CMC was active and playing.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Henry was on a ridiculous pace with 219 rushing attempts for 937 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns in 8 games before he suffered a foot injury and missed the rest of the fantasy season. He turns 28-years old this year, but has only 1,401 career carries. He should be able to withstand the pounding an be an elite fantasy running back in 2022.When McCaffrey is healthy, he is arguably the best fantasy running back in the NFL. The problem is he has played only 10 games the last two years and he is never healthy at the end of the year. He is going to be one of the most intriguing fantasy players of 2022 as fantasy managers grapple with the talent versus the risk of injury.
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
 The injury concerns for Christian McCaffrey are justified. Since 2020 he's dealt with an ankle sprain, thigh injury, AC joint sprain, and high ankle sprain, missing 18 games. When he's on the field, though, he's still a top-three running back. Last season in the five games he played at least 48% of the snaps, he averaged 20.1 (0.5 PPR) fantasy points per game. This would have placed him as the RB3 in weekly fantasy scoring behind only Jonathan Taylor and Derrick Henry.
