2022 Dynasty/Fantasy Camp Notes (from 8/08/22)…

 

A collection of notes and commentary from training camps -- wanting to discuss the big news or give some tidbits you might not see anywhere else…

 

 -- As we discussed a week or so ago, the Romeo Doubs story is gaining more and more steam…and thus his 2022 Dynasty Rookie Draft and Redraft ADPs are starting to move higher.

I will reiterate, I’m intrigued by Doubs, as a scout…and started noting the reasons why in our Dynasty Rookie Draft top 350 rankings board and in our redraft Draft Guide a month+ ago, right before the surprising camp breakout -- but I’m also a little suspicious of this current push right now.

I think Doubs is a very good ‘technical’ WR, and 7-on-7s and 11-on-11 non-contact play works to his advantage, much like KeeSean Johnson rose to prominence in the preseason for Arizona a few years ago (a comparison we made a few weeks ago).

Doubs is at least getting attention, that’s a good thing -- but it has helped that Christian Watson has been out with injury and unable to practice. If Watson was 100%...would we be getting the glowing reports on Doubs? Maybe.

Green Bay loves its Packers, and many a-young player gets legendized by the media in non-contact training camp practices over the years. It’s fun for fans, but we have to be more critical as Fantasy GMs. Doubs is good/promising, but these camp stories on him have him going from ‘not bad’ to ‘makes wow plays every practice’ to now ‘walking on water’ it seems. Packer fans and media are looking for WR hope, desperately, since Davante ditched them…jilted lovers that they are. Doubs seems to be their rebound WR, right now.

The Packers had a game simulation night for the fans this past weekend, and I have some additional notes on that for subscribers.

-- The reports on D.J. Chark ‘looking great’ in practice…believe it.

Now, somewhere between 50 and 227 players get the beat writer camp label of ‘looking great’…or ‘looking good’ or ‘they really like this guy’ or ‘shinning’ or ‘turning heads’…so, this latest media DJC praise is likely to drown into the background quickly.

It’s especially likely to drown into the background because everyone dismisses the Lions, and they for sure dismiss Jared Goff…so, ‘who cares’ if Chark is shining in camp.

I am guilty of ignoring the first inklings of positive Chark talk. I let the positive Chark words just roll off my back too. I mean, Josh Reynolds is a serpent (according to Dan Campbell) and everyone loves Amon-Ra St. Brown, and D’Andre Swift is amazing in every camp report -- so now Chark is getting praise, big deal, right? Campbell praises all of them…the media echoes it for the moment…and no one outside (or inside) Detroit really cares.

However, I have watched various camp tape and 11-on-11 work, etc., and I gotta say…it’s good to see DJC back. There’s more here than the typical pat on the head, camp fawning stuff…potentially.

How much is he back? How does Jameson Williams factor into all this? We’ll discuss that in the subscriber extra notes.

 -- Two lesser thought of rookie RBs are ascending to Week 1 starting roles, potentially. We’re going to touch on them as well as a third rookie RB who has gone from totally ignored to the soon-to-be apple of every Dynasty/Fantasy player’s eye in the next week or two, and it’s already starting.

I’m getting a lot of questions on them, and rightfully so. Let’s talk about them in the subscriber report.
