In the meantime, let’s dive into why these are some solid must-draft running backs going into the NFL fantasy 2022 season.
1. Derrick Henry
It goes without saying that if Derrick Henry played the entire season last year, he would have broken every rushing record ever created. In fact, any RB record ever created. You can say IF, but he is still going to be a beast this upcoming 2022 season. I have him as my first overall pick on all platforms and I see him beating out last years top dog Jonathan Taylor.
Derrick Henry played 8 games last year and was in the top 10 in rushing yards, attempts, and TDs. Don’t sleep on this man for fantasy 2022, even if your leagues are in PPR. Derrick Henry is a must-draft RB this season. I believe he will break records this season.
2. Saquon Barkley
This is it! This is the year that Saquon Barkley Bounces back into top 3 form. He will boom and get back to the 2018 self! What is that you ask? Well, he is overdue for 1. Secondly, it is a contract year for him and he has to perform or his career is over. You factor in that he is fully healthy going into this season and the focal point of the offense with no committee. You have yourself a winner.
The bonus to all this is that you can get Saquon for nothing this year. He is coming off in either the 2nd or third round of drafts. The value is there as well. He will explode onto the scene this year with everything to lose. He must perform and it will happen this upcoming season. The ceiling and the upside are there!
3. Breece Hall
While it may not sound exciting that Breece Hall is on the Jets, you have to understand that this man will eat this season. The O-line is improved and there is plans to make him the focal point of the Jets offense. You don’t trade up to the first round and draft an RB in rd one to sit him on the bench. Draft this guy for great value and crush your leagues this season.
He will eat and will dominate this season.
4. Kenneth Walker
While this doesn’t seem like a clear-cut open road to domination, you have to consider Walker as a break out this NFL fantasy 2022 season. The youth and talent are there and he will eat. It is very unlikely that Chris Carson will play this season, and if that is the case Walker becomes the RB on a suspect offense.
Yes, the team may be suspect but he will get the volume and eat this season. At the time of this article Drew Lock is slated as the starter but doubt that will be the situation for the season start time. The team is in talks with guys like Baker Mayfield, who is better than Lock. Kenneth Walker is sitting 32nd on the consensus rankings among RBs and that is a big-time sleeper at the RB position. Stash him as your RB 4 with massive upside this 2022 season.
