The 2022 NFL season will be here before you know it, making this the perfect time to predict and project players with a chance to lead the league in notable categories.

This article will focus on offensive statistics, highlighting some under-the-radar players with a chance to amass the most passing touchdowns, receiving yards and other noteworthy statistics during the coming campaign.

While the usual superstar suspects will surely be in the running to pace their peers in these categories, here's a look at some dark horses who could give them a run for their money.

Touchdown Passes

QB Zach Wilson, New York Jets

Zach Wilson did not look like the breakout star the Jets were hoping for when they drafted him No. 2 overall last year. Despite his injury-plagued and inconsistent rookie showing, the Gang Green signal-caller is poised for a successful sophomore campaign.

New York has surrounded the 22-year-old with a slew of weapons. The team's receiving corps appears to be one of the deepest in the league following the addition of Garrett Wilson, the No. 10 overall pick last month. Wilson will link up with incumbents Corey Davis, Elijah Moore and Braxton Berrios to form a dangerous crew of pass-catchers for Wilson to target.

With rookie running back Breece Hall augmenting a backfield that already featured an up-and-coming star in Michael Carter, the Jets have set Wilson up with everything required to put up big numbers in 2022.


QB Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars

Like Wilson, Trevor Lawrence had an up-and-down rookie season, one marred by turnovers and Urban Meyer's disastrous tenure as head coach. Fortunately, a steady hand in Doug Pederson is taking Meyer's place, and Press Taylor will be running the offense, offering upside for the signal-caller to have a huge second season.

Jacksonville added another high-end pass-catcher into the mix by signing Christian Kirk, bolstering a receiving corps that also features veteran Marvin Jones and an emerging Laviska Shenault Jr.

If Lawrence settles in and lives up to his potential, he could be one of the top passers in the league this year.
