Are there any value plays you would recommend to a league leader that you should make right now?

Seth Walder, ESPN Sports Analytics writer: I would be willing to take a long shot at this Cam Akers At 30-1. He's ranked fifth in my rush yard projections. This is due to Mike Clay's 63% projected team-designed carry share — an important input — and the Rams strong win total (read more carries). Akers was not a good player in the postseason, but there is a chance that he will rebound if he gets more time to recover from his Achilles injury.

Eric Moody, ESPN gambling analyst You should look into the value of regular-season rushing yards if you want to find one. Najee Harris At +1500 Harris finished the last season with 1,200 rush yards. Harris appears physically intimidating and intimidating at OTAs. Derrick Henry. James Daniels Mason Cole The Steelers added them to their offensive line in free agency. Both can play either center or guard and are excellent starters. These additions, and Harris' transformation in his physical form make him a credible candidate for leading the league in rush.

Tyler Fulghum is an ESPN betting analyst Mike Evans (40-1) leads NFL in receiving yards. There is no one who will throw the ball more than Tom Brady This season, he was with the Bucs. He was the league leader in completions and attempts, yards, and TDs last season. Antonio Brown The old one is gone. Chris Godwin While he heals from an ACL Injury, he won't be able to play the full season. Rob Gronkowski He may be finished, and even if not, he is still one year older. To whom is Brady going to throw? It wouldn't surprise me if Evans ranks among the top five in the NFL for most targets per game. Evans has always been a major-play threat. Brady will force Evans to eat — and for Evans, who has never failed 1,000 yards in any league season — who could be set for the best season his career.

Tom Brady (+700) is the favorite for the league's top ranking in passing yards at the age of 45. Do you think this is a worthwhile bet?

Aaron Schatz, Football Outsiders editor-in-chief: My favorite wager to win the league in passing yardage is Derek Carr At +1200. Did you know that Carr was fifth in the league for passing yards last year? That was all without Davante Adams To catch his passes and with Darren Waller An injury can cause you to miss time.

Anita Marks is an ESPN betting analyst Justin Herbert (+550) appears ready to win his third season. Instagram photos and reports about his off-season program should have Chargers fans thrilled. Herbert threw 38 touchdowns last season and passed for more than 5,000 yards. The Chargers were the fourth-best offense in the NFL. The front office was wise enough to resign Mike Williams Additional offensive lineman Zion Johnson The draft. Herbert has a strong receiving core and is blessed with one the best receiving backs. Austin Ekeler. Brandon Staley, one of the most offensively-minded coaches on the team, is his coach.

This offseason saw a lot of movement at the WR position with Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams, as well as A.J. Brown was among the new team members. What do you consider the leader in receiving yards this year?

Joe Fortenbaugh (ESPN betting analyst): CeeDee Lamb 25-1 Amari CooperLamb, who caught 79 passes last year, will now have 68 receptions. As quarterback Dak PrescottLamb is the Cowboys' top threat. I can see Lamb setting a lot of targets, as Cowboys engage in shootouts every week.

Moody: Justin Jefferson My pick to lead the league this season in receiving yards. In the last two seasons, he played in 33 games and averaged 91.4 receiving yards each game. The Vikings could make Jefferson look more like a Viking. Cooper KuppAs they adopt a Rams-like offensive under Kevin O'Connell, Jefferson is on track for a great season.

Jonathan Taylor and Derrick Henry have been the leaders in rushing yards for the past three seasons. They also have the lowest odds of winning 2022.

Schatz: Taylor is the best candidate to lead the league's rushing yards in 2022, but I would be happy to go with anyone else. Dalvin Cook @ +850 We project him third at Football Outsiders in part because Cook will be running out of time and the Vikings will have more wins.
