It’s hard to believe how quickly the 2022 season is flying by. Further complicating matters is the arrival of those pesky bye weeks. That places added importance on the Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 8.

Here are the top fantasy-relevant, low-rostered free agents to target ahead of Week 8, with FAAB recommendations.

Week 8 byes: Kansas City, Los Angeles Chargers 

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget

Bailey Zappe (QB) New England Patriots (5% FAAB- After Mac Jones threw an interception on his 3rd drive coming back off the ankle injury in Monday Night Football, Coach Belichick benched Jones in favor of Zappe. Zappe threw a 30-yard TD to Jakobi Meyers and a 43-yard completion to DeVante Parker in his first two drives. In his previous two games, Zappe was the 2nd highest-graded QB, per PFF, only behind Josh Allen. Among QBs over that span, Zappe ranks in the top 5 for adjusted completion % and NFL Passer Rating, while also throwing for the 8th most yards during that span. Zappe may not add much with his legs, but he’ll be an interesting QB2 moving forward as long as he starts.

Daniel Jones (QB) New York Giants (5% FAAB)- The 6-1 Giants are cruising under Daniel Jones and their defense. Jones just rushed for 107 yards on 11 carries. This is the third such game Jones has rushed for 68+ yards. He’s the QB9 on the season and showed his ceiling Week 7 against Jacksonville. The Giants get Seattle in Week 8, a defense that gives up 17.9 fantasy points per game and 7th most rush yards to QBs this season. Consider Jones a high-floor QB2, as he’s 34% rostered.

Earlier this summer Billy wrote up his initial fade list for 2022. As the preseason has progressed, there are even more players that he plans to avoid at their current ADP.

Focusing on the all-important pass catchers, here is Billy Muzio’s Fantasy Football Fades 2.0.

 

Wide Receivers

 

Tee Higgins (Cincinnati Bengals) – Like Joe Burrow, I am out on Tee Higgins at his current cost. Higgins is selected as WR #13 and pick #26 in FFWC drafts. You are buying Higgins based on his playoff performance and will be disappointed with his 2022 output. You can insert my argument for Burrow here as everything applies, but let’s dive into Tee Higgins’s independent stats and efficiencies. Higgins finished as the WR#22 or worse in fantasy points per game in 10 of his 14 starts during the regular season. In those 14  games, he had 4 or fewer receptions in 5 games and 62 yards or less in 8 of 14.  He was WR#71 in contested catch rate at 25%, WR#77 in true catch rate at 78.7%, WR#31 in target separation, WR#40 in total route wins (#52 vs. man), and WR #36 in routes ran. Don’t get me wrong, Higgins is a good receiver, but not WR#13. Pass on Higgins in the 2nd and early 3rd rounds in your drafts…

2022 Fantasy Football Fades

The 2022 fantasy football season is upon us; people are flocking to draft rooms with their draft cheat sheets and rankings in hand to take down the grand prizes in their favorite tournaments. They are crossing off names one at a time, looking for value, looking for their favorite targets, and avoiding their 2022 fantasy football fades.

Below you can find my 2022 fade list with detailed reasonings and data supporting my choice to pass on players when I am on the clock. But before we begin, I think it’s important to clarify what I mean by fade.

Fading a player does not mean I will not draft a player- There is a point at which every player is draftable; that cost is up for you to decide. However, considering my overall roster portfolios, I roster fewer of these players than the rest, and I think it would be irresponsible or foolish not to own any.

That being said, I often find myself passing on these players due to the draft capital required to acquire them, and I will continue to fade them unless something in the offseason changes the fantasy landscape or their projected outlook.  

Let’s dive into Part One of my 2022 Fade List for the 2022 fantasy football season, looking at quarterbacks and running backs.

Quarterbacks

Joe Burrow– Don’t get me wrong, I love Joe Burrow, and I love his weapons, but I can’t get behind the cost it takes to acquire him in drafts. Burrow is currently being selected as QB6 in early FFWC draft rooms. He is going ahead of Tom Brady, Jalen Hurts, Dak Prescott, and Russell Wilson, to name a few.

Cincinnati’s strength of schedule sits at .536 in 2022. That ranks as the third-highest behind the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals. We also need to consider his fantasy shootout schedule (weeks 15-17). Burrow faces the best of the best, starting with the Bucs, Pats, and then Bills. Looking at Joe Burrow’s successes in 2021, we can’t help but think there will be some regression in 2022.

Burrow led the league in completion percentage at 70.4%; he was 8th in the league in TD’s, 6th in the league in money throws, 3rd in the league in touchdown rate at 6.5%, 8th in the league in deep ball completion percentage at 43.1%, 2nd in the league in true passing rating, and 3rd in the league in accuracy rating. I know this sounds AMAZING- but that’s the caveat; even after that monstrous season, Burrow finished 2021 as QB8. He would need to outperform those robust statistics to give investors a return on the draft capital necessary to acquire him in drafts.
