Top 2022 Fantasy football picks

The Fantasy football draft bible includes 2022 Fantasy football breakouts you’ll need to know before you go on the clock including:

WR Jalen Tolbert, Dallas Cowboys: The Cowboys parted ways with Amari Cooper in the offseason, signaling that it’s the CeeDee Lamb show in Dallas going forward. However, every show needs a strong supporting cast, and that’s where Tolbert comes in. With Michael Gallup potentially missing the start of the season as he continues to recover from a torn ACL, Tolbert will be the second option as a receiver who can fit any role in the passing attack.

“Tolbert brings an NFL-ready route tree and overwhelmingly positive analytical profile and could immediately step into a significant target share in the Amari Cooper-less Dallas offense,” Gibbs told SportsLine. “I’m aggressively targeting him as an upside pick in the later rounds.”

RB James Cook, Buffalo Bills: After two seasons of unfulfilled promises that Zack Moss and Devin Singletary would become a similar one-two punch as Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt in Cleveland, the Bills drafted one player who can be both. Cook is the brother of Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook and has the same trademark acceleration when he puts a foot in the ground and turns upfield. However, Cook’s usefulness in the passing game is what will make him a top producer in Fantasy lineups for those who bank on the Bills rookie.

“That type of investment following an offseason of searching for a playmaking pass-catcher out of the backfield certainly seems to indicate that the Bills have plans to utilize Cook’s unique skillset,” Gibbs told SportsLine. “If his per-route rates at Georgia are any indication, Cook could make much better use of the heavy route running load than Singletary did.” Get the full Fantasy draft guide over at SportsLine.
