As soon as August hits, it is more than just Chicago Bears training camp season. It is also fantasy football draft season for those who play in redraft (year-long leagues that reset every year) leagues. A home league of mine just had a draft party this past Sunday in my garage with a full-blown fantasy football draft board that included player sticks.

Knowing that fantasy football drafts are right around the corner, it is important to start looking into who should be targeted in drafts. Which players can make the impact you need to bring home a championship this year? I am here to help you “Play 2 Win” (my podcast plug) when it comes to your fantasy football leagues.

Before we talk about any specific players, I want to cover a few fantasy football terms so that we are all on the same page. When I refer to:

  • ADP: Average Draft Position. Where is a specific player being drafted? Example: If Nick Skrip’s ADP is WR32, he is the 32nd WR coming off of fantasy football boards
  • PPR: Points Per Reception. Fantasy football scoring format where you get a full point per reception.
  • PPG: Fantasy points per game played (average)
  • Upside: Showing the ability to produce elevated stats/fantasy points above the norm

Although I do like what Justin Fields and David Montgomery can bring to the fantasy football world (future articles), I want to focus on two guys that are must-draft Chicago Bears players in your fantasy football leagues that can give your team the boost you need in 2022.
