Top Free Agents 2022

16. Ronald Jones II (Age: 24)

Jones has been better than advertised since his terrible rookie season. It’s likely the Bucs opt to let the RB walk. Arians places huge value on pass blocking and catching which are the main flaws in Jones’ game. Jones is a solid pure runner with the ability to break tackles and make defenders miss. Jones’ best fit is in a system that puts him in a position to be a primary option on early downs. He may not land in the most popular spot, but a team like Houston or Atlanta could allow Jones to lead a backfield. His landing spot will go a long way in predicting his value and a change of scenery is necessary to get the most out of him. He could fly up the rankings if he signs with the right team. Top Landing Spots: Miami, Houston, Atlanta

17. Jakobi Meyers (Age: 25)

Meyers is a restricted free agent making it less likely that he goes anywhere else. He has turned into one of Mac Jones’ go-to guys. His low touchdown numbers is the main turn-off for fantasy. Meyers saw 84% of the offensive snaps in 2021. 2022 should see more of the same as he’ll remain a foundational piece of the Patriots offense. I don’t see Meyers improving his value by heading elsewhere, and luckily it’s not likely he does so anyway. He is a hard worker that fits in the Patriots system and should continue to develop with Jones. Given he remains a Patriot, he could end up being a sneaky buy-low option for fantasy owners. Top Landing Spots: New England, Philadelphia, Cleveland

18. Sony Michel (Age: 27)

Michel’s move to LA may have saved his value heading into free agency. He averaged 90 yards a game over the final 6 weeks and proved to be a capable early-down thumper. He hasn’t been as effective in the pass game, which limits his upside from a fantasy perspective. With Akers and Henderson on cheap deals in LA, it’s likely the two parties are likely to split. Buffalo is one of my favorite spots for Michel. They are likely to move on from Zack Moss, and Singletary will need a new partner. Another nice spot is Miami. Mike McDaniel could get the most out of Michel. Given Michel’s deficiencies in the pass game, he’s not much better than a low-end RB3. Top Landing Spots: Buffalo, Atlanta, Miami

19. Zach Ertz (Age 32)

Ertz played a total of 11 games with the Cardinals after his trade from Philadelphia. In those 11 games he STILL tied Arizona’s record for receptions by a tight end in a season. Ertz has already hinted that he wants to be back with the team. Arizona has a lot of holes to fill and a lot of free agents that are higher priorities. It may come down to whether Ertz will take less money to stay in Arizona. From a fantasy perspective, Arizona surely holds the most value for Ertz. If Dalton Schultz leaves Dallas, Ertz seems like a seamless fit for the Cowboys also. Playing with Dak and Co would offer a similar amount of upside. He may not be the player he once was, but Ertz should have a few more seasons of startable play left in him. Top Landing Spots: Arizona, Dallas (if Schultz leaves), Jacksonville

20. Cordarrelle Patterson (Age: 31)

Patterson was one of the lone bright spots for a struggling Falcon offense in 2021. He was able to churn out over 1,100 yards and 11 TDs behind one of the worst offensive lines in football. He sounds like he wants to remain in Atlanta, but at 31 years old it will have to happen at a discount. Mike Davis (cut candidate) is the only other RB under contract. A return to Atlanta could allow CPatt an opportunity to once again lead a backfield. With few options that would garner the same excitement for Patterson’s fantasy value, managers need a return to Atlanta. Assuming he sticks around, Patterson could be a valuable PPR flex option in 2022. Top Landing Spots: Atlanta, Miami, San Francisco
