Anyone who has ever played fantasy football before can look at a draft queue and draft the first 4-5 round players and love their team, but the real draft starts after that. The key to winning fantasy titles isn’t chasing last year’s gems, but it’s finding this year’s gems. Here are Drafthustle’s top 10 players who you can find after round 10 who will guide you to fantasy glory in 2022.
Jakobi Meyers – WR, New England Patriots
Current Underdog ADP: #130 Overall, WR60
I don’t care how many TDs Jakobi Meyers did or didn’t score, as the #1 option for New England he should be being drafted sooner than a WR5. He finished as WR36 in half ppr leagues in 2021 with only scoring 2 TDs, so his value should be even higher in leagues that award a full point per reception. Devante Parker being on the outside allows Parker to operate in the slot where he seems to be more comfortable. Love him as a WR4/Flex in any format.
Van Jefferson – WR, Los Angeles Rams
Current Underdog ADP: #145 Overall, WR67
The Rams offense was unlocked in 2021 with the arrival of Matthew Stafford, and it looks lit that will continue in 2022. Van Jefferson is currently the cheapest player to acquire in the Rams WR corps, and that why I love drafting him. With the departure of Odell Beckham and Robert Woods, Van Jefferson will be Stafford’s second most trusted target, and should get a decent target share for a WR5 with the chance to increase that should Kupp or A-Rob miss time.
Julio Jones – WR, Free Agent
Current Underdog ADP: #187 Overall, WR81
I chose to believe Julio Jones still has something left in the tank, despite his 2021 season. I believe a contender will eventually sign him and he will instantly jump 6+ rounds in ADP. Take him as a next to last round pick now and flourish in 2022.
