Fantasy Football League Winners YouTube Series Top 10 Through Week 6 Of The 2022 NFL Season

Over the last few months, the Football Scout 365 NFL podcast team has been hard at work trying to ID potential fantasy football league winners. Today, I wanted to rank the top ten from the 17 potential league winners we have discussed on the podcast since August using a basic grade scale.

Grade Scale

A= Player has the highest potential league-winning value

B= Player is in a timeshare, not the number one at his position, or has been inconsistent, but has shown high-level league winner potential

C= Player is a key piece but is not number one at his position. Will need to be more consistent or move up the depth chart. The player is a current flex play or stash

D= Was once believed to carry league-winner potential but has yet to move up the depth chart or receive enough snaps. A low-level stash.

1). Deandre Hopkins (A)

League Winning Grade: A

Hopkins returns Week 7, and if early reports of Hollywood Brown being in a walking boot after wk6 are serious, Hopkins is just in time to retake his WR1 in the Cardinals offense.

2). Kenneth Walker III (A)

Walker assumed the lead role in the Seattle backfield after Penny's injury. The last two weeks, Walker has posted 32 fantasy points in the previous two weeks and has shown his explosive playmaking ability if for real.

3). Breece Hall (A)

Breece has been a fantasy darling since he was drafted, but his timeshare with Michael Carter early in the season limited his opportunities. Since wk4, Breece has taken the backfield over, posting 20 fantasy pts per game.

4). Rhamondre Stevenson (A)

In week 5, Stevenson took over the backfield after Harris injured his hammy. Stevenson racked up 22.5 fantasy points while handling 90% of the backfield snaps. In wk6, Stevenson scored 23 fantasy pts vs. the Browns.

5). Josh Allen (A)

Josh Alen, like Lamar, provides league-winning upside because of his big play ability as a passer and runner. He is the QB1.

6). Lamar Jackson (A)

We did a combo video on who will be the league MVP in 2022. As of wk6 it is Josh Allen. But Lamar is still QB2, his rushing upside and improved passing allow him to remain one of the best fantasy options.

7). Brian Robinson (B)

Robinson is in a favorable spot to receive a heavy workload down the line. In his return from being shot two times in a robbery attempt just over a month ago, it took Robinson two weeks to take over the backfield from Antonio Gibson. In wk6, Robinson broke out with a 47% snap share, 13.5 fantasy pts.

8). J.K. Dobbins (C)

Dobbins returned wk3 vs. the Patriots and was on a pitch count. He Assumed 43% snap share in week 3. Wk4 vs. Buffalo, Dobbins scores 22 fantasy pts, returns to earth wk5 vs. Bengals. Wk6, Dobbins started the game before knee "tightness" occurred, rushed 7 times for 15 yds.

9). David Njoku (B)

After 6 weeks, Njoku is TE 6. With Brissett at QB, Njoku has been inconsistent yet has posted a 24 pt and 15 pt fantasy performance. Once Watson returns, the bet is Njoku could become a favorite target of a QB who relied on his TE's in the past.

10). Romeo Doubs (C)

Since wk3, Doubs has recorded a 90% snap rate with 30 targets in an offense in search of a playmaking WR. Wk3 and 4, Doubs scored 30+ combined fantasy pts against the Bills and Pats, scoring twice. Wk5 and 6, Doubs has fallen back to earth, recording 10 total fantasy pts, but he remains a highly targeted option with 14 targets.
