Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Notched 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 goneIn Year 3, with an upgrade in field general acumen behind center, it's easy to believe Pittman can improve upon last year's WR18 finish
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Best-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.Ryan might be meh, but it's a big upgrade from Wentz -- AND RUMORED BREAKFAST CLUB?!?! The two are showing strong, immediate chemistry that can't be ignored
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
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.Pittman got the true WR1 treatment from the Colts coaching staff in 2021, running a route on 96% of offensive dropbacks - third to only Cooper Kupp (WR1) and Ja'Marr Chase (WR4) through 17 weeks. He also finished the season tied for the league's eighth-highest target share (24%), which was 11 percentage points higher than the next closest Colt, Zach Pascal, at 13%. He also made 18 highlight-reel contested catches - fourth most in the NFL. And his 31% target share from Weeks 13-18 cemented his place in Indy's WR1 chair heading into 2022. With Matt Ryan under center Pittman has the volume potential to be a top-12 fantasy option. Ryan has a history of fueling top-end fantasy WRs like Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, making a top-five finish not all that crazy for Big Mike in 2022. Don't forget that last season, Ridley as the Falcons' No. 1 receiver owned the sixth-highest target rate per route run and ranked second among all wide receivers in expected fantasy points per game (16.5).
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
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. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.Pittman Jr had a breakout season with 1,062 yards from scrimmage and 5 touchdowns in the fantasy season. If he continues to make strides, he should be a WR3/WR2 in 2022. He should be helped by the addition of Matt Ryan, who will offer more stability in the passing game than Carson Wentz.
