Fantasy football: Field's favorites for the 2022 NFL season

Despite moving to a talented offense in Denver, Russell Wilson is sliding in most fantasy drafts. Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

I'm a firm believer that there is hardly a player in fantasy football I will not draft. There's way too much unpredictability in the game to avoid players at all costs -- it's just about the right cost.

But the point of this piece is to identify players I am motivated to draft based off my personal outlook for the season and their current average draft positions (ADP). These aren't names you haven't heard of or sleepers -- these are household names in some cases -- but you can find our picks for sleepers and more in our ESPN Fantasy Draft Kit.

Let's take a look at Field's Favorites.

Note: Current average draft positions (ADP) are as of 10 p.m. ET on Monday, Aug. 29.

Russell Wilson, QB, Denver Broncos (ADP: 84.8, QB11)

The notion of Wilson finishing as a top-five quarterback this season isn't preposterous -- it's plausible. Wilson, who had an eight-year run of top-10 finishes at the position that included being the highest-scoring quarterback in all of fantasy in 2017, takes command of a Broncos offense with two exceptional receivers in Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy, comparable to his time in Seattle with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Prior to last season, Wilson had averaged just over 500 rushing yards per season, as his mobility helps raise his floor and ceiling. Playing in a conference where offense is everywhere, the Broncos will have to throw a ton.
