Do enough off-season draft prep and you’ll undoubtedly come across fantasy analysts hyping a 2022 fantasy football contract year players list. The theory is that players, especially those coming off their rookie deals, are extra motivated to perform well this season and break the bank on the open market.

While it does seem like some players do indeed show up to training camp in the shape of their life and there is certainly some precedence to wanting to maximize their offseason value, there is no real corollary evidence that indicates there is a notable increase in output in contract years.

Of course, there are exceptions to that. Undoubtedly plenty of players set to enter unrestricted free agency in 2023 will have standout performances this season. But it just might be us looking for this to happen that makes it just seem more common than it actually is.

Regardless, targeting contract-year players in fantasy football drafts can lead to the occasional breakout performance, but it should just be viewed as a small piece of the draft puzzle. Perhaps used as a tie-breaker between two players who are similarly ranked.

Here are some of the key skill-position players to keep in mind that are currently set to be unrestricted free agents after the 2022 NFL season. For a complete list, bookmark the FullTime Fantasy Contract Year Players tab.

The ages listed are how old players will be in March.

A healthy portion of annual fantasy football enthusiasts are still casual redraft fans who just want to join an office pool or throw together a quick draft to help make those autumn Sundays a little more interesting.

But a quick visit to Twitter is all you need to do to see the growing popularity of dynasty fantasy football leagues. Unlike those one-and-done redraft formats, dynasty leaguers play for keeps. An initial draft means you get to keep those players forever, which places more emphasis on youth and potential.

Scouting and research are more important in dynasty, as finding the next huge breakout star can make your roster a competitive team for years to come.

After writing countless rookie scouting profiles this spring, I have mixed feelings about the incoming rookie class, especially at quarterback. Now that landing spots are known and training camp is right around the corner, it’s time to take a look at my 2022 dynasty QB rankings.

Be sure to sign up for our Discord, as these rankings will be updated often throughout the summer.

  2. Justin Herbert (Los Angeles Chargers)

WHERE SHOULD YOU DRAFT your QB in 2022 dynasty leagues?

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.
