2022 NFL Fantasy Football Season QB Sleeper Picks

By Jeff Stinger

As tenured fantasy football managers know, drafting a quarterback late in one’s draft is a pretty viable strategy in order to beef up the more critical positions for one’s fantasy team in the earlier rounds. That being said, there’s a treasure trove of fantasy QB sleepers worth considering for your upcoming draft, with each of these play-callers right on the cusp of vaulting into QB1 status and could be picked up in most re-draft leagues towards the middle to late portions of the draft. 

Nitrobetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, futures odds, and special features for the duration of the 2022 NFL offseason. This time, let’s take a closer look at the five best sleeper picks at the QB position for the 2022 NFL fantasy season, as well as several futures odds pertaining to the player and/or team in the discussion.

Top 5 QB Sleepers in the 2022 Fantasy Football Season 

VIEW: Complete 2022 NFL Futures Odds

Tua Tagovailoa (Dolphins)

Considering the addition of speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill to Miami’s receiving corps, many fantasy experts are high on Tua Tagovailoa to finally have his breakout NFL season this year. Hill and Tagovailoa seem to have a ton of chemistry during their offseason reps shared on social media, which is encouraging to see especially with how the latter’s professional career has been hampered by injuries. Nevertheless, Tua’s ceiling is much higher now with Tyreek on board for more risky shots downfield and his floor is still decent thanks to his overall efficiency.

Trevor Lawrence (Jaguars)

Finally freed from the nightmare rookie season under disgraced head coach Urban Meyer, now’s the time for Trevor Lawrence to show what he’s really made of. Jacksonville’s first-overall pick from last year’s NFL Draft did not look ready for the pros under the questionable guidance of Meyer and will now bounce back under the tutelage of a more renowned leader in former Super Bowl winner Doug Pederson. Simply put, it’ll be hard to top Lawrence’s miserable maiden campaign in 2021 and there’s nowhere else to go but up from here for the generational talent. 

Daniel Jones (Giants)

Injuries and turnovers have plagued Giants quarterback Daniel Jones’ first three years in the NFL; poor coaching system notwithstanding. Given the new regime under former Buffalo offensive coordinator Brian Daboll (a +1,600 favorite to win the 2022 NFL Coach of the Year award), fans and experts alike see Jones taking the next leap away from his mediocre start in the league. Daboll was instrumental in tuning up the Patriots and Bills franchises around as an assistant coach on offense and will likely be credited for Jones’ turnaround as well if the former sixth-overall pick puts together his best NFL season yet.

Matt Ryan (Colts)

One big reason why Indianapolis is currently the (-114) favorite to win the AFC South this season is because of Matt Ryan’s arrival in Indy. For the past decade, the former league MVP has finished the regular season with an average of over 4,000 passing yards and has been a go-to option for fantasy managers looking to pick up a veteran QB later in the draft. Ryan is 37 years old already, but like the ageless Tom Brady, he has yet to show significant signs of regression and will likely be revitalized by playing for a playoff-contending Colts organization this year.

Deshaun Watson (Browns)

Regardless of one’s opinion on polarizing gunslinger Deshaun Watson, one cannot ignore the unbelievable talent that he is on the gridiron. Watson will serve a six-game ban at the start of the 2021 NFL season following his off-field legal battles that are still ongoing. However, even this absence should still warrant a flyer in the deeper rounds of the draft for fantasy managers who can afford a bench spot for the three-time Pro Bowl selection’s inevitable return as early as Week 7 of the season.
