The 2023 Season is in the books. While there’s still some playoff football to help us see how players do in the clutch, for dynasty players, it’s a time to sit back, take stock, and see how players fared. Over the next couple of months, I’ll be looking back at the 2023, 2022, and 2021 classes by position. I’ll be evaluating if their stock rose, remained the same, or dropped during the course of the season. Now could be the time to sell high, buy low, or hold on to a winning hand. Today, I continue with the 2022 Quarterbacks.

Stock Up: Breece Hall, New York Jets

About: Entering his second season, it was unclear what to expect from Hall. He was injured as a rookie, and his team seemed to hedge its bets by signing Dalvin Cook just before the season. But it was Hall who dominated despite a poor season for the Jets. He rushed for 994 yards and five touchdowns, seeing 95 targets and catching 76 passes for 519 yards and four more touchdowns. The team released third down back Michael Carter and Cook during the season, further solidifying Hall as the three-down back he appeared to be when the Jets took him. He’s a top-three back in the dynasty for me.

Stock Up: James Cook, Buffalo Bills

About: Would Cook be the man for the Bills? That was the question coming into the season, but Cook answered those questions. He rushed for 1,122 yards and caught 44 passes, continuing to thrive while the Bills shifted to a more run-heavy offense. Cook showed he can be a weapon in the run-and-pass game for the Bills, giving him strong dynasty appeal as an RB2.

Stock Up: Rachaad White, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

About: White stepped up in year two, taking the lead for the Buccaneers’ backfield. While he struggled a bit to start, he ended the season high. He finished with 990 rushing yards and six touchdowns, catching 64 passes for 549 yards and three touchdowns. He looks like a back capable of being the lead. His pass-catching helped him to finish as RB4. That’s the upside, but I like him more as an RB2 in Dynasty.

Stock Up: Kyren Williams, Los Angeles Rams

About: Williams wasn’t much of a factor in his rookie year, but he exploded onto the scene in 2023. He rushed for 1,144 yards and 12 touchdowns in just 12 games. He helped the Rams get to the playoffs. There are still questions about his durability and the possibility the Rams will use other backs, perhaps even second-year man Zach Evans. But Williams showed his talent, and he’s in a good offense. That’s enough for me to put him in my Top 24.

Stock Up: Jerome Ford, Cleveland Browns

About: Would Ford get a bigger role in Cleveland? That was a question heading into his second year. When Nick Chubb was lost for the season, Ford was asked to step up. He rushed for 813 yards and four touchdowns, catching 44 passes. With Chubb due back, Ford becomes a supporting player. Still, he should be rostered, and I suspect there’s room for him to be a regular contributor, even with Chubb in the lineup.

Stock Up: Zamir White, Las Vegas Raiders

About: White didn’t have much of a role as a rookie. The Raiders then used the Franchise Tag on Josh Jacobs, and he carried the load to start the season. When Jacobs was hurt and missed the last part of the season, White got his shot. He carried 104 times for 451 yards and a touchdown. Jacobs is a free agent again, and it doesn’t seem like the Raiders will bring him back. I doubt White just gets handed the job, but he played well enough to be in the mix for Luke Getsy and the new-look offense. He’s a player I’m holding or acquiring for cheap heading into 2024.

Stock Neutral: Ken Walker, Seattle Seahawks

About: Despite the presence of rookie Zach Charbonnet, Walker had another solid season. He rushed for more than 900 yards and caught more passes. So, why Neutral? Well, the Seahawks are in the midst of a big change. It’s unclear what the new offense will be like, while the Seahawks still have Charbonnet in the mix as well. Walker is still a low-end RB2 for me in dynasty, but if I can get a good haul for him, I might consider moving on and hedging my bets.

Stock Neutral: Brian Robinson, Washington Commanders

About: Robinson was the lead back for the Commanders in 2023 and had a decent season. He rushed for 733 yards and five touchdowns. Antonio Gibson is a free agent. But there are plenty of questions for the Commanders, who welcomed Dan Quinn as Head Coach and Kliff Kingsbury as Offensive Coordinator. The team holds the No. 2 overall pick and figures to grab a new franchise quarterback and pieces to build a new offense. Robinson figures to be a piece of the backfield, but I’m not valuing him as a lead back. If you find someone who does, I’d move him.

Stock Neutral: Isiah Pacheco, Kansas City Chiefs

About: Pacheco is the lead back for the Chiefs. He’s also the only piece we know will be back, with Jerrick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire set to hit free agency. Pacheco is a solid runner who tallied 935 yards on the ground. The question is his role in the passing game. He took a big step forward in 2023 with 44 receptions, but it remains to be seen if he’s a true three-down volume back. For now, I’m much more comfortable leaving him in RB2 territory than as a fringe RB1. If I find someone who is more bullish, I’d consider moving him.

Stock Neutral: Tyler Allgeier, Atlanta Falcons

About: Allgeier had a fantastic rookie season, and the Falcons rewarded him by drafting Bijan Robinson. Still, Allgeier managed to finish as RB36. He had some big games and some scant games, but he’s clearly just a rotational back for the Falcons. With a change at offensive coordinator, that isn’t likely to improve. He’s worth a roster spot, but he’s not a lock to have starting value week-to-week.

Stock Neutral: Isaiah Spiller, Los Angeles Chargers

About: Yes, we haven’t seen much from Spiller in the past two seasons. But it’s a new day for the Chargers with Greg Roman taking over the offense and Jim Harbaugh taking over as Head Coach. Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley are free agents, and I wouldn’t be surprised if neither is back. The Chargers figure to add someone to the backfield rotation, but there’s an opportunity for Spiller to have an expanded role in 2024. For now, that makes him worth a hold if you’ve been stashing him.

Stock Down: Dameon Pierce, Houston Texans

About: Pierce outplayed his Fourth-Round draft capital in 2022, serving as the Texans’ lead back and rushing for more than 900 yards. In year two, while the Texans’ offense took a step forward, Pierce fell out of the rotation. He started the season as the lead but mustered just 416 yards total, averaging less than three yards per carry. By the end of the season, he had been replaced by Devin Singletary and was mostly just a kick returner. Pierce will still be on the roster, but he doesn’t have much, if any, fantasy value moving forward.

Stock Down: Tyrion Davis-Price, San Francisco 49ers

About: You’re always excited about a running back taken by Kyle Shanahan. Davis-Price was a Third-Round pick, which made him intriguing. But he’s the fourth option in the backfield at best, behind a workhorse in Christian McCaffrey, a great No. 2 in Elijah Mitchell, and young back James Mason. To me, he’s not worth a roster spot at this point.
