2022 NFL season: Most overrated player on all 32 NFL teams
Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott, RB
For three of his first four seasons in the NFL, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was the gold standard, racking up over 1,300 yards three times. He could have been in for the biggest season of his career in Year 2, but an injury forced him to miss nearly half the season.
Since then, Elliott has been a solid running back, but when you look at the financial investment the Cowboys made in him, he has underperformed. Dallas will need the Elliott from early in his career if they hope to win the NFC East in 2022.
Denver Broncos: Courtland Sutton, WR
The Denver Broncos made one of the bigger splashes in the NFL this offseason, trading for Super Bowl-winning quarterback, Russell Wilson. Wilson is a major upgrade over every Broncos quarterback to take the field since Peyton Manning, and that should have a serious impact on the production of their wide receivers.
Looking at the position group, the Broncos have solid young wideouts, including Courtland Sutton, KJ Hamler, Jerry Jeudy, and Tim Patrick. Sutton is a guy who has long been considered the No. 1 wideout of the group, but Jeudy should emerge in that role in Year 3, especially with Wilson under center.
