With the 2022 NFL season reaching the midway point, several players returning from injury, reduced roles or down years have recertified themselves as forces to reckon with.

New York Giants star Saquon Barkley has returned from ACL and ankle injuries in 2020 and 2021 to help his team reach a 6-2 record. 

The Seattle Seahawks were expected to have a down year after trading Russell Wilson, but Geno Smith has stepped up under center in intriguing fashion and has led the team to a 5-3 record, good for first in the NFC West.

Newly acquired San Francisco 49ers star Christian McCaffrey is also climbing the ladder after a hot start to life in the Bay Area, including a triple-crown touchdown outing against the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams last weekend.
