Fantasy Football Draft Mistakes to Avoid in 2022

Winning in fantasy football hinges on finding players who outperform their draft slots, avoiding overvalued players who can sink a season.

In a sea of deep quarterbacks, drafting Josh Allen in Round 2 is a risky move, especially considering his reliance on rushing touchdowns and uncertain passing numbers.

De'Von Achane's inefficiency and competition for touches in the Miami backfield make him an overvalued pick at his current ADP.

Marvin Harrison Jr.'s immense talent doesn't negate the fact that he is being drafted with the unrealistic expectation of a historic first season in fantasy football.

Riding on Tyler McBride's second-half surge from last year could prove to be an overvalued gamble, especially given the Cardinals' addition of other target hogs like Marvin Harrison Jr. and Zay Jones.
