2022 NFL Fantasy Football Season RB Sleeper Picks

By Jeff Stinger

Perhaps the most important position in fantasy football is running back, and not everybody is lucky enough to have one of the first top five picks of the draft to nab a superb RB1 option. As such, looking for decent RB2 options in the latter rounds of the draft is just as crucial as committing to your team’s weekly workhorse back. Here’s a short list of such running backs who could be easily picked up in the middle-to-late rounds.

Top 5 RB Sleepers in the 2022 Fantasy Football Season 


VIEW: Complete 2022 NFL Futures Odds

Tony Pollard (Cowboys)


Thanks to an amazing offensive line, Dallas’ backup running back Tony Pollard deserves a ton of love as a viable RB2 pick despite still being behind Ezekiel Elliott in the pecking order. Pollard finished second in the NFL last season with 5.5 yards-per-carry and ate up quite a lot more touches from Elliott, who had career-low numbers across the board. We wouldn’t be surprised if Pollard outshines Zeke in 2022, which is why most pundits are even high on the Memphis standout becoming the Cowboys’ every-down back as early as this upcoming season.  

Devin Singletary (Bills)


Often overlooked because of Buffalo’s stellar passing game, Devin Singletary will fly under most fantasy managers’ radars. The Bills, who are the current (+600) odds-on favorites to win Super Bowl LVII, are finally seeing their third-round pick from 2019 come into form. Singletary finished the previous season with new career-highs of 188 carries, 870 rushing yards (4.6 YPC), and 40 receptions. The mere fact that he plays for the most potent offense in the NFL speaks highly of his RB sleeper potential.

Travis Etienne Jr. (Jaguars)


Joining Trevor Lawrence as a sleeper fantasy pick this season is fellow Jacksonville/Clemson teammate and 2021 NFL Draft alum Travis Etienne Jr. The Jags did not get a chance to see what the former Clemson standouts could do together on the field due to a season-ending Lisfranc injury last preseason. The 25th-overall pick in last year’s draft is now healthy and ready to rule Duval with T-Law, as Etienne is hovering around the 22nd and 25th running back in most pre-draft rankings. 

Miles Sanders (Eagles)


Missing nine games over the last two seasons due to a slew of injuries, Miles Sanders has had a rocky couple of campaigns in Philly. However, expectations are high for the Eagles (+175 NFC East contenders) thanks to the captivating season of Jalen Hurts under center. Sanders is still considered the lead back in Philadelphia, as his pass-catching skills complement Hurts’ own mobility in the running game very well. In turn, Sanders is a fringe low-RB1 option who’s being taken as a mere RB2 in mock drafts.

Breece Hall (Jets)


The rookie running back we’re most high on comes from the Big Apple in the Jets’ Breece Hall. The two-time All-American selection out of Iowa State averaged 1,500 rushing yards, 20.5 rushing TDs, and 5.7 yards-per-carry over his last two seasons for the Cyclones and is set to take the league by storm as the fuel for the Jets’ afterburners. Hall is currently seen as a borderline top-20 running back in PPR leagues.
