2022 NFL Free Agency WRs 16-20
16. Byron Pringle, Kansas City Chiefs
Byron Pringle is one of the fastest players available in this year’s free agency crop and luckily for him, he’s coming off of a breakout season with the Chiefs.
Before, Pringle was a return guy with maybe some rotational development upside at receiver. In Kansas City this past season, he saw an uptick in targets significantly (up to 60 from 17) and caught 42 passes for 568 yards and five touchdowns.
Not every team can afford to give a guy like Pringle 60 targets, but he’s got outstanding speed and should be pretty sought after.
17. Tre’Quan Smith, New Orleans Saints
In four seasons, Tre’Quan Smith has averaged a touchdown on over 15 percent of his receptions. With 17 touchdowns in four seasons, Smith has untapped potential and needs a higher volume of work.
The former third-round pick out of UCF is another very intriguing young player on this year’s free agent wide receiver heap.
18. Sammy Watkins, Baltimore Ravens
The clock is ticking on Sammy Watkins at this point. Even though he’s only 28, his inability to make plays at a consistent rate is discouraging.
He caught just 27 passes and one touchdown for the Baltimore Ravens last year.
19. Cedrick Wilson, Dallas Cowboys
With the Dallas Cowboys dealing with some injuries this past season, the former Boise State star reeled in 45 passes for 602 yards and six touchdowns.
He caught almost 74 percent of his targets and like a number of other players on this list, his breakout came at just the right time.
20. Zay Jones, Las Vegas Raiders
The former ECU star caught 47 passes for the Raiders this past season and even though he may just be a secondary option at this point, he’s still only going to be 27 this season and as a WR4, he’s a very solid option.
