There are three great upside potential Wide Receivers I love for 2022. The ceiling is high and I love the talent and the landing spot opportunity. Now it is obvious that Ja’Marr chase will have a big year, but people still have guys like Cooper Kupp and Davante Adams ranked ahead of chase and he could surpass them with ease this year.
Let’s talk about Ja’Marr Chase first. I love the talent and youth with this man and of course the high ceiling going into the 2022 NFL Season. He finished 5th in fantasy points last year in PPR amongst WRs. This was achieved with only 128 targets. When you compare that with Cooper Kupp, he saw 191 targets. You have to factor in a major regression for Kupp and an incline for Chase. That being factored in, you have to imagine that Chase will surpass Cooper Kupp in fantasy points this upcoming season.
The Big question is will I draft Chase going in this Fantasy Football Season? I would have to say that I will still end up fading him as I like drafting an RB in the earlier round of my draft. I want to secure that RB in the early rounds. I still like Chase to have a great year and have that massive upside.
Youth and opportunity are the key ingredients to why I love Drake London. You have to agree that he is a plug-and-play wide receiver on the Falcons this upcoming season with no competition. You have Kyle Pitts there, but he is a TE. The sky is the limit with Drake London and I will be sure to roster him everywhere I can this season without hesitation.
The only question marks come when you look at the QB situation. It is harder to trust a guy like Marcus Mariota and will be interesting to see how these two connect. Either way, you will see a ton of volume going to Drake London this year and I love the upside. Target him as a solid WR sleeper with top 10 upside this fantasy football season. Do not sleep on him.
Another guy who has the sky as the limit. I love Christian Watson for fantasy football 2022. He is currently sitting as the #63 WR in fantasy consensus rankings. The mainstream is sleeping on what could and should be Aaron Rodgers’s favorite target this season. You have to understand that 169 targets are not free with Adams being gone. This opens up a massive void for Watson to really shine this season. I love the opportunity here and I will also be targeting him in my draft any time I can get him.
Guys like Allen Lazard have had years to wow us and we are not wowed. Look for Watson to get a ton of points this season and really shine in the Packer’s offense. The price to draft him in fantasy football leagues is practically free. I am all over this bargain with massive upside.
