6 Fantasy Football Quarterbacks Primed to Break Out in 2022

The fantasy market gets sharper every season. The amount of data available to us through free tools and sites is almost daunting. But the projections drive draft cost. And yet, we need to find edges any way we can to win our leagues. Here’s where hitting on breakouts can turn the tide in your favor.


More Breakout Candidates: WR | RB | TE


It’s not an exact science, but there are signs. Teams can give us only so many clues before Week 1. Matthew Stafford’s aggression matched with the Rams’ efficient playcalling made sense when the trade happened. They just happened to get a historic year out of Cooper Kupp simultaneously. So, let’s see if we can find similar situations as we head into the 2022 draft season.

2022 Candidates

Trevor Lawrence, Jaguars

Let’s start simple. Calling Trevor Lawrence a breakout candidate is by no means a tough decision. Everyone was back on board after the front office hired Doug Pederson. Finally, a coach and staff capable of overseeing the development of an elite quarterback prospect. But it’d be fair to wonder if they can undo the damage from Lawrence’s rookie season.
