The 2022 NFL season is upon us! Fantasy owners, we now have a reason to smile again. However, you do need to know who could be a bust on your roster. Don’t stash and check out these players you may need to dash!
CHASE EDMONDS, MIA Dolphins running back
Chase Edmonds can get the job done but no one knows how involved he will be in a stuffed backfield. It’s too soon to tell. So no bets are off until there is more clarity to what this offense will look like. Running backs like Salvon Ahmed, Gerrid Doaks, and Alec Ingold are more likely to be depth players or cut depending on roster numbers.
It’s Raheem Mostert, Sony Michel, and Myles Gaskin that could be the culprits to stealing carries, touches and targets. Depending on weekly matchups, Miami ground game looks like it will become a “running backs by committee” arsenal. Chase can be a “do-it-all” rusher but there is doubt the Dolphins will enforce him to carry the load with all these options.
Chances are its not worth the chase for Chase!
Miles Sanders, PHI Eagles running back
Miles Sanders has been set up to be the lead back season after season yet fantasy owners were shortchanged. Sanders has all the tools needed in an every down back plus he has shown flashes prior to constant injuries . The past two seasons has been especially disappointing due to the fact the Eagles has not brought in a challenger to compete for the lead role at running back via trade, free agency, or even the draft.
Back ups Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott, and Jason Huntley are not immediate RB1 replacements even more so when Miles is healthy. Nonetheless, fantasy owners are still hesitant to start these guys too, week after week. Can Sanders be trusted in your starting line up again?
Let’s wait and see on that one.
Kenny Golladay NY Giants wide receiver
Don’t get it twisted, Kenny Golladay has all the ingredients to be a WR1. For some reason, he has not produced at the level that matches his big contract he signed for 72 million. In 2021 alone, Kenny suffered four different injuries.
Injuries aren’t the only concern. In the past two drafts, the Giants has taken two promising wide outs in Kadarius Toney and Wandale Robinson. Keep in mind, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton are still at the top of the food chain and will demand targets. If you want to know what NFL teams are thinking? Just follow the money. As a general manager, two cheap contracts verses one big contract sounds like a no brainer. Who do you think outlasts the other by the time the regular season starts?
I smell a trade in the works.
