Fantasy football season is right around the corner for a lot of NFL fans. People play for fun or they play for money and either for a short amount or for a big amount. Some of the top-tier quarterbacks this season will be Josh Allen (BUF), Patrick Mahomes (KC), Joe Burrow (CIN), Justin Herbert (LAC), and Lamar Jackson (BAL). There are other quarterbacks that will be worth to draft. However, if you don’t land any of them or want to find a decent backup quarterback, there are some sleepers.
Most leagues will play with only one quarterback to start, but for some reason, some leagues to play with two quarterbacks to start which seems very interesting nonetheless. Who are three of the potential fantasy quarterback sleepers for 2022?
Trey Lance, San Francisco 49ers
Trey Lance is in line to be the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers this season. He is going to be starting in place of Jimmy Garoppolo. Lance played a little bit last season but was mainly holding the clipboard. He will have some rushing packages in RPOs to gain rushing yards.
Trey Lance will have Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, and George Kittle as his primary targets. Lance will be fine with head coach Kyle Shanahan as his play-caller. He threw for 603 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions last season. Trey Lance also rushed for 168 yards on 38 carries and one touchdown. He could be one of the fantasy football quarterback sleepers.
Jared Goff, Detroit Lions
Jared Goff played a lot better in the second half of the NFL season for the Detroit Lions. Detroit is looking to turn the corner this season in football. Goff could potentially be a big reason why. D’Andre Swift in the backfield, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jameson Wiliams, and T.J. Hockenson will be his top targets.
Goff threw for 3,245 yards, 19 touchdowns, and eight interceptions last season. He also rushed for 87 yards on 17 carries and zero touchdowns. Jared Goff could be one of the fantasy football quarterback sleepers.
Zach Wilson, New York Jets
Zach Wilson has been in the NFL news a lot recently because of his off-the-field nonsense and everyone is praising him. A lot of people are thinking he will go off this season because they believe he has that dog in him. Wilson could take a massive jump from year one to year two.
Zach Wilson will have Elijah Moore, rookie Garrett Wilson Jr., Corey Davis, and C.J. Uzomah as some of his primary targets. Wilson threw for 2,334 yards, threw for nine touchdowns, and was picked off 11 times. He also rushed for 185 yards on 29 carries and four touchdowns. Zach Wilson could be one of the fantasy football quarterback sleepers.
