This is done by looking at the roster compositions and contract situations of each NFL team. We dig into our NFL Nation's E+.And Extrapolated the fantasy implications of some of the players on your fantasy football draft list for 2023.
These players could be a great option for rebuilding your fantasy team or looking to boost your chances of winning a championship.
, : 49ers couldn't move forward after fracturing their right ankle. Under center this season. Garoppolo has been able to score at least 16 fantasy goals in every game except one, including a record 25.4 fantasy points against Cardinals on Monday night. Garoppolo may look for a 2023 home that will allow him to be the unchallenged starting pitcher, regardless of how the 2022 season with the 49ers ends. Garoppolo has shown fantasy managers that he is capable of producing with a strong supporting cast. Imagine if Garoppolo landed with the Raiders and Commanders in 2023. Garoppolo can be acquired in more advanced formats or superflex leagues.
, : Jones' fifth-year option for Jones was not used, so he can become a free agent following the season. Jones has exceeded expectations of fantasy managers without receiving playmakers. Jones has scored fantasy points of 18 or higher in three of his four previous games. The Giants have a very fantasy-friendly schedule for the final week of the season, with games against the Commanders (Vikings), Colts (Colts), and Eagles (Weeks 15-18). Jones' turnover woes seem over. If the Giants don’t resign him, many teams will be in need of new quarterbacks.
, : ESPN's Todd Archer said, “The guaranteed portion of the money” [Ezekiel] Elliott's contract will expire after this season. Although the Cowboys will be able to save $10.9million next year by designating Elliott as a post-June 1, cut, it will still lead to more than $8 million in cap hits in 2024. Pollard is also an unrestricted agent and Dallas may cut Elliott to sign him. Pollard has 22 fantasy points or higher in each of the three previous games, including two games that had more than 33. For the rest of 2022, your fantasy team can benefit from a Pollard trade now And For the 2023 season regardless of whether he resigns from the Cowboys.
, : The rookie contract for Damien Harris will expire in the first quarter of next year. Stevenson has been the star of his career, with Harris having rushed for nearly 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns. Harris could be on a different team in 2023. Stevenson averaged 18.5 touches per game and 14.2 fantasy point per game.
., : Wilson is thrilled to be reunited with Mike McDaniel the Dolphins' head coach. McDaniel was a key figure in the 49ers running scheme and Kyle Shanahan. The Dolphins have allowed 31 touches and 38.5 fantasy point in two games. Wilson and Mostert both have one-year deals. Wilson is the Dolphins' running back in 2023, if I had to guess.
, : White will be in his final year of the contract and is expected to take over the head of the backfield committee when the Buccaneers return from their bye. White ran a record-breaking 105 yards against the Seahawks in Week 10, which gave the Buccaneers a boost to their running game. His value could increase every week so it is time to trade.
, : The Chiefs have to decide if they will use the fifth-year option in 2023. CEH was removed from the offense before a high ankle injury forced him to the injured reserve. Meanwhile, rookie Pacheco ran for 107 yards in 15 attempts against Chargers. This made Pacheco the Chiefs' first running back to surpass 100 rushing yards. If Pacheco performs well, he could be the front-runner for the Chiefs' 2023 committee.
, : As a runner, and as a receiver, he is extremely capable. Herbert was able to surpass 1,000 yards in his three first seasons with the Bears. Fantasy managers are taking notice of Herbert as Montgomery is close to becoming a free agent. Herbert's stats show his explosiveness relative to Montgomery's. Herbert is second in the Bears' rush for yards with 643 yards through 10 games. He has also rushed for 108 carries which puts him second to quarterback (749). Herbert is currently signed through 2024 under a cap-friendly contract. Herbert is currently on injured reserve due to a hip injury. It's the right time to trade him. Expectations are that he will be fully healthy and ready to start in 2023.
, : Jacobs is enjoying a fantastic season, with 21.7 touches per game and 19.4 fantasy point per game. However, it should be noted that Jacobs' fifth year option was declined earlier in the year by the Raiders. White could be the 2023 starter because he will likely leave in free agency. With 2,043 yards, the rookie ranks 15th in the University of Georgia's career running list. White is possible to be added by the Raiders through free agency or the draft. But White should be relatively simple to acquire at this time, possibly even as a throw in in a larger trade.
, : ESPN's Josh Weinfuss wrote, “[DeAndre] Hopkins will be paid $19.5 million next year, but the cap hit is $30.9 million. So something has to give. Either Hopkins will restructure the deal to lower the cap or the Cardinals may decide that he doesn't merit the cap space or cash. Hopkins' play this season — since his return from a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy — might make Arizona lean toward needing him again.” Hopkins has averaged 21.9 fantasy points and 11.5 targets per week. Ian Rapoport, NFL Network's reporter, reported that many teams attempted to trade for the veteran receiver prior to the deadline. They are currently 4-7 and unlikely make the playoffs. If they parted ways with Kliff Kingsbury or general manager Steve Keim, they may have to rebuild. Hopkins will continue to have a large target share, regardless of whether he is traded to a contender or stays with the Cardinals. With With the Cardinals in turmoil and injured, fantasy managers may consider trading for the 30-year old receiver to help them win this year. The next step is He has proven that he still has plenty of fuel and is almost a quarterback-proof player.
, : Adam Schefter, ESPN's sports reporter, reported that Ridley is in good shape and will return to the sport once he has been reinstated in 2023. Ridley, 27, missed the majority of 2021's season due to personal reasons. . Prior to that, he had rushed for 2,48 of 380 targets and accumulated 3,342 yards and 28 touchdowns. He was a fantasy superstar. He ranked fifth among players who had at least 20 games in 2020-2021 for receiving yards per game (82.8). Ridley, who was acquired by the Jaguars before the trade deadline, will rejoin the team upon his return. A dynamic tandem that can complement an improving Jaguars offense. Ridley is a strong candidate to be a contender for WR1 fantasy numbers by 2023.
, : The Texans rank 30th in terms of total yards (290.1), and points scored per match (15.9). He is unhappy with the Texans' record of 1-8-1. The disgruntled receiver was not traded by the deadline and the Texans have removed him from his captaincy due to his comments. Houston has the ability to evaluate its personnel for the remainder of the season. Collins was targeted 17 times in the last two games after returning from a groin Injury. He is now in a position to continue receiving targets as an audition for the No. The 2023 season will have the 1st receiver slot.
, : Any fantasy manager who is looking for upside should consider acquiring wide receivers in the 2022 draft class. London's performance in the Falcons offense, which has averaged 32.8 rushing attempts per games this season, is what I find most interesting. London averaged 5.9 targets per week, but has demonstrated enough to warrant that the Falcons prioritize him in their passing game next season. And Struggle for the first job.
, New England Patriots Meyers is likely the Patriots' best receiver for the season. New England's top receiver is Meyers. He is leading in receiving touchdowns (3), targets (52) and receiving yards (457). Meyers will finish his career with similar numbers to 2021's 83 receptions, 866 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Meyers is looking for a career-defining deal through free agency. He will be a top wide receiver wherever he goes, and should receive plenty of targets.
Miami Dolphins Gesicki is an afterthought of Mike McDaniel’s Dolphins offense. And Each deserve a large target share. After averaging 700 yards in each of the past two seasons, he is now only on pace for 480 receiving yards in 2022. However, he is on track to record a career-high in touchdowns. Gesicki is a free agent and can pick a team who will value his skills more than his grit.
, Arizona Cardinals: McBride was injured in the knee in Week 10. He was replaced by McBride who is one of Colorado State’s most distinguished players. John Mackey Award winner for the nation's best tight end, McBride set school records in tight ends (receiving yards, 100-yard games and receptions) during his 2021 season. The Cardinals have the sixth-highest target rate in the league for tight ends. Ertz averaged 7.7 targets per game in this season's campaign, but Ertz will be 33 next season and is coming off a knee injury. McBride is the best choice if you are looking for a tight end.
