QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Derek Carr561.2384.44293.225.8210.6642.3126.91.06272.74
Nick Mullens42.227.43061.731.313.73.70.0417.15

Derek Carr: Perennially undervalued, Carr has been one of my favorite targets in 2-QB leagues given his relatively high floor as a second quarterback. Since entering the league in 2014, Carr has never finished worse than QB20 and he's finished as a top-half QB2 (QB13-QB18) or better in six of the past seven seasons with the exception being a QB19 finish in 2017. Reunited with his former Fresno State teammate (Davante Adams), Carr is a legitimate threat to finish as a top-12 fantasy quarterback, even if he's not drafted as such.

Josh Jacobs: Jacobs set career lows in rush attempts (217) and rushing yards (872) but career highs in targets (64), receptions (54) and receiving yards (348) in 2021. Through three seasons, Jacobs has yet to finish worse than RB18 in half-PPR scoring.

Tyron Johnson4.150.60.30008.91

Davante Adams: Adams has been an elite producer in Green Bay, especially over the past two seasons. In 30 games over the past two seasons, Adams has 238 receptions for 2,927 yards and 29 touchdowns. Adams has scored double-digit touchdowns in five of the past six seasons. Even if it's unlikely that Adams maintains his 7.9/97.6/0.97 line from the past two seasons due to the quarterback downgrade from Aaron Rodgers to Derek Carr and stiffer competition for targets, he's still a top-five receiver heading into 2022.

Hunter Renfrow: Renfrow crushed previous career highs with 103 catches for 1,038 yards and nine touchdowns on 128 targets in 2021. Carr and Renfrow have developed tremendous chemistry, but the addition of Davante Adams makes repeating those numbers extremely difficult for Renfrow.

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Darren Waller80.31000.35.2000171.38
Foster Moreau18.5225.41.400040.19
Jacob Hollister4.343.70.30008.32

Darren Waller: Waller is one of the most dynamic mismatches at the position and he had a massive 27.7% target share in his last full season (2020). While he missed six games in 2021, he has averaged 69.9 yards per game since 2019. With the Raiders trading for Davante Adams, however, the days of a 27.7% target share are likely over for Waller.
