Dynasty Football Rankings: 2022 Pre-Training Camp Update

These dynasty football rankings are fluid and should be used as a general guide to value players. Many players’ values are dependent on whether a roster is contending for a title or in the process of rebuilding. As such, certain veterans ranked below younger prospects in my rankings could still be worth acquiring in a trade straight up for a contender, and some high-upside prospects may make more sense for a rebuilding team even if ranked below some veteran producers at the position.

The influx of a talented 2022 rookie class has shaken up these dynasty football rankings quite a bit, as high-upside rookies like Breece Hall and Drake London have become immediate top-100 dynasty assets. Trades that occurred during the NFL Draft like A.J. Brown to Philadelphia and Marquise Brown to Arizona have also created ripple effects throughout the rankings. Taking into account team need and roster construction, here are my updated top-200 dynasty football rankings assuming a standard 1QB format with PPR scoring (you can find my superflex rankings here). And be sure to check back for updated dynasty rankings after training camps begin!


Say what?! Your dynasty football league didn’t use Fantrax last year? Unthinkable! Check out all the features Fantrax has to offer, and we think you’ll be singing a different tune for the coming season.

4TE1Kyle PittsTEATL
5RB2Najee HarrisRBPIT
6RB3Christian McCaffreyRBCAR
7RB4Saquon BarkleyRBNYG
8RB5Javonte WilliamsRBDENWilliams was one of the most efficient RBs in the league as a rookie. Even with Gordon back, he's a dynamic young player with top-10 RB upside.
9RB6D'Andre SwiftRBDET
10WR3CeeDee LambWRDALWith Cooper gone and Gallup coming off an ACL, Lamb is poised to break out in a big way in 2022, especially with DAL 2nd in pace of play last year.
11WR4Cooper KuppWRLAR
12WR5Jaylen WaddleWRMIA
13WR6Deebo SamuelWRSF
14WR7Tee HigginsWRCIN
15QB1Josh AllenQBBUF
16QB2Patrick MahomesQBKCThe addition of Skyy Moore reinforces the notion of KC building a strong roster around Mahomes long-term. He remains firmly in the top tier of QBs.
17QB3Justin HerbertQBLAC
18WR8DK MetcalfWRSEA
19RB7Dalvin CookRBMIN
20TE2Mark AndrewsTEBALWith Brown now in ARI, Andrews should continue to serve as a top target for Jackson in BAL, though overall passing volume remains an issue.
21WR9Stefon DiggsWRBUF
22QB4Lamar JacksonQBBAL
23QB5Kyler MurrayQBARIARI quieted swirling rumors of Murray's discontent by trading for Marquise Brown, which alleviates concerns about his commitment and surrounding cast.
24QB6Trey LanceQBSF
25WR10Drake LondonWRATLLondon wins 50/50 catches with great body control, has good route-running and speed considering his size, and steps into an alpha WR1 role in ATL.
26WR11Jameson WilliamsWRDETWilliams has impeccable body control and good hands with blazing speed. Don't expect much as a rookie, but he has elite upside long-term.
27RB8Joe MixonRBCIN
28RB9Austin EkelerRBLAC
29RB10Breece HallRBNYJAn agile runner with good vision and speed, he's a great fit for the Jets' zone scheme but is likely the 1A in a committee backfield.
30TE3Travis KelceTEKC
31TE4George KittleTESF
32WR12Davante AdamsWRLVR
33WR13Tyreek HillWRMIA
34WR14Michael PittmanWRIND
35WR15Courtland SuttonWRDEN
36WR16AJ BrownWRPHIBrown has missed time due to injury, and Hurts has yet to prove he can support multiple top-24 WRs as a passer, making Brown a risky asset.
37RB11Cam AkersRBLAR
38RB12Travis EtienneRBJAXIt sounds like Etienne is fully recovered from his foot injury, which should increase his likelihood to see large target volume out of the backfield.
39QB7Russell WilsonQBDEN
40QB8Joe BurrowQBCIN
41RB13Nick ChubbRBCLE
42WR17Marquise BrownWRBALGoing from a run-heavy offense in BAL to potentially the no. 1 in a fast-paced ARI offense with Hopkins suspended bumps Brown up quite a bit.
43WR18Diontae JohnsonWRPIT
44RB14Elijah MitchellRBSF
45RB15Leonard FournetteRBTB
46RB16Alvin KamaraRBNO
47WR19Jerry JeudyWRDEN
48WR20Chris GodwinWRTB
49WR21Rashod BatemanWRBALBrown traded to ARI expands Bateman's role and target share considerably, but overall target volume in a run-heavy BAL offense remains an issue.
50WR22Elijah MooreWRNYJ
51RB17Aaron JonesRBGB
52RB18Ezekiel ElliottRBDAL
53RB19Antonio GibsonRBWAS
54WR23DJ MooreWRCAR
55WR24Terry McLaurinWRWAS
56WR25Chris OlaveWRNOOlave is an excellent route runner and has speed to create big plays downfield. Volume is a short-term concern, but he has high upside long-term.
57WR26Garrett WilsonWRNYJWilson has good burst and route-running and should be a solid contributor for the Jets if they scheme him open to create yards after the catch.
58RB20Derrick HenryRBTEN
59WR27Mike EvansWRTBEvans is older, but with Brown gone and Godwin coming off the ACL, he has elite upside in 2022 with Brady back for one more season.
60QB9Deshaun WatsonQBCLEWith four lawsuits remaining, Watson is a top-12 dynasty QB, but contending teams may want to avoid acquiring with his 2022 status still iffy.
61QB10Dak PrescottQBDAL
62QB11Trevor LawrenceQBJAX
63QB12Justin FieldsQBCHIFields has a fairly high fantasy floor due to rushing production, but CHI's bottom-5 OL and barren WR room are glaring concerns for his development.
64QB13Matthew StaffordQBLAR
65QB14Jalen HurtsQBPHIWhatever PHI decides on Hurts long-term, he's poised to repeat as a top-5 fantasy QB in 2022 with the addition of AJ Brown via trade.
66WR28Keenan AllenWRLAC
67WR29Allen RobinsonWRLARIt wasn't so long ago that Kupp and Woods both finished as top-12 WRs with Goff. With Stafford, Robinson could see a massive bounce-back.
68RB21JK DobbinsRBBALThere's significant concern that Dobbins will start the year on the PUP list and may not be 100% healthy for the duration of the 2022 season.
69RB22Josh JacobsRBLVRWith the Raiders having declined his fifth-year option, Jacobs's future looks murky, but he'll be a fine RB2 option for 2022.
70RB23David MontgomeryRBCHI
71WR30Skyy MooreWRKCGiven his lack of experience at WR, Moore is a solid route-runner and has decent speed and agility. He has WR2 upside with Mahomes.
72WR31Treylon BurksWRTENBurks has good hands and can win contested catches, but he profiles as a big slot WR for TEN, so lack of volume and TDs are both worrisome.
73RB24AJ DillonRBGB
74RB25Kenneth WalkerRBSEAA powerful runner with lateral agility, Walker is a great fit to be SEA's early-down RB, but receiving usage and overall offensive efficiency are concerns.
75RB26James CookRBBUFCook has good vision as a runner and is an excellent receiver. In BUF's efficient offense, he could be a dynamic weapon with high fantasy upside.
76WR32DeVonta SmithWRPHI
77WR33Amari CooperWRCLE
78WR34DeAndre HopkinsWRARIHopkins is facing a six-game suspension for PEDs and will be 30 years old this season, so he's a rapidly-declining asset for contending teams only.
79TE5TJ HockensonTEDET
80TE6Darren WallerTELVR
81RB27Clyde Edwards-HelaireRBKC
82RB28James ConnerRBARI
83WR35Mike WilliamsWRLAC
84WR36Brandon AiyukWRSF
85WR37Brandin CooksWRHOU
86QB15Aaron RodgersQBGB
87QB16Tua TagovailoaQBMIA
88QB17Zach WilsonQBNYJThe Jets added an impact RB and WR to Wilson's supporting cast during the draft, which should make life easier for Wilson.
89QB18Derek CarrQBLVRCarr's future in Vegas past 2022 is up in the air, but with Adams, Waller, and Renfrow, he could have a strong season and prove his long-term worth.
90WR38Michael ThomasWRNO
91WR39Christian WatsonWRGBWatson is a size/speed mismatch, but he's a raw route runner with inconsistent hands, so he'll need to develop more to win Rodgers's trust.
92TE7Dalton SchultzTEDAL
93TE8Dawson KnoxTEBUF
94RB29Damien HarrisRBNE
95RB30Chase EdmondsRBMIA
96RB31Miles SandersRBPHI
97RB32Isaiah SpillerRBLACDespite lacking top-end speed, Spiller is an explosive runner and capable receiver. Ekeler will be 27 this year with little dead money in 2023.
98WR40Jahan DotsonWRWASDotson is a great route-runner and has speed to make big plays. He'll be a good complement to McLaurin but is unlikely to see high target volume.
99WR41Gabriel DavisWRBUFWith BUF only having added Crowder and Shakir this offseason, Davis has a chance to secure the no. 2 WR role, giving him a high ceiling.
100WR42Amon-Ra St. BrownWRDETIt was inevitable DET would add more WR help. St. Brown can be a WR3 with Goff targeting the slot, but don't expect his late 2021 WR1 production.
101RB33Kareem HuntRBCLE
102RB34Ronald JonesRBKCJones is on a one-year prove-it deal, but he could see plenty of early-down work and GL touches, which gives him RB2 upside in this KC offense.
103WR43JuJu Smith-SchusterWRKC
104WR44Chase ClaypoolWRPITQB play and the addition of Pickens are both concerns for Claypool. He'll need accurate downfield throws to produce as more than an iffy flex.
105TE9Mike GesickiTEMIA
106TE10Dallas GoedertTEPHI
107TE11Pat FreiermuthTEPIT
108WR45Kadarius ToneyWRNYGThe talent is there, but Toney's off-field history and rumors that the NYG could already be looking to trade him don't bode well for long-term success.
109WR46Darnell MooneyWRCHI
110WR47Russell GageWRTBGage is vastly underrated as the potential no. 2 WR with Brady if Godwin isn't ready by Week 1 or isn't 100% early on coming back from the ACL.
111WR48Christian KirkWRJAX
112TE12Zach ErtzTEARIErtz averaged 6.1 tgts per gm with Hopkins last year compared to 7.2 tgts per gm when Hopkins was out. He's a TE1 for 2022 with top-5 TE upside.
113WR49Rondale MooreWRARI
114TE13Cole KmetTECHILack of receiving talent in CHI could make Kmet the no. 2 target behind Mooney, so he has back-end TE1 upside due to potential target volume.
115TE14Albert OkwuegbunamTEDEN
116RB35Michael CarterRBNYJThe addition of Hall relegates Carter to the 1B role at best in the Jets' backfield, making him just a flex play with RB2 upside if Hall were to miss time.
117TE15Noah FantTESEA
118WR50Adam ThielenWRMIN
119RB36Melvin GordonRBDENGordon is likely to cede more work to Williams than he did last year, but he still has some usability as a flex play with upside if Williams were to miss time.
120WR51Tyler LockettWRSEA
121RB37Tony PollardRBDAL
122RB38Alexander MattisonRBMIN
123RB39Rhamondre StevensonRBNE
124RB40Khalil HerbertRBCHI
125TE16Irv Smith JrTEMIN
126TE17Robert TonyanTEGB
127TE18Evan EngramTEJAX
128WR52Allen LazardWRGBWatson could take some targets, but Lazard likely has the most chemistry with Rodgers heading into training camp, so he has fair upside in fantasy.
129QB19Tom BradyQBTBWith a $375M payday waiting for him at Fox Sports, Brady likely only has one final season in him, but he's a solid top-12 QB in fantasy for at least 2022.
130QB20Kirk CousinsQBMIN
131QB21Mac JonesQBNE
132QB22Kenny PickettQBPITPickett can go through progressions and avoids turnovers, but he may lack an elite fantasy ceiling. Still, he will be surrounded by weapons in PIT.
133WR53Michael GallupWRDAL
134RB41Darrel WilliamsRBARIWith Conner's checkered injury history, Williams has RB2 upside if Conner were to miss time and can be a standalone flex in Edmonds's old role.
135RB42Rashaad PennyRBSEA
136RB43Cordarrelle PattersonRBATL
137TE19David NjokuTECLE
138TE20Logan ThomasTEWASWith Wentz in town, a healthy Logan Thomas could see fair target volume, making him a solid TE2 with upside despite a down year in 2021.
139RB44Dameon PierceRBHOUA good runner who powers through contact, Pierce should be HOU's early-down back but offers limited fantasy upside barring major TD production.
140RB45JD McKissicRBWAS
141WR54Kenny GolladayWRNYG
142WR55Robert WoodsWRTEN
143WR56Hunter RenfrowWRLVRThe arrival of Adams and presence of Waller caps Renfrow's target volume and fantasy ceiling, so don't expect him to repeat his 2021 production.
144RB46Devin SingletaryRBBUFBUF drafting Cook in Rd 2 doesn't bode well for Singletary's workload, but he's still a decent PPR flex with upside for this season.
145RB47Pierre StrongRBNEStrong is an elusive and explosive runner who can also catch the ball. He could quickly move up the depth chart in NE and become a PPR flex option.
146RB48Zamir WhiteRBLVRWhite has good vision and burst and projects to play on early downs in 2023 with the Raiders having declined Jacobs's fifth-year option.
147QB23Malik WillisQBTENWillis has the raw tools but will need to develop behind Tannehill. If he can improve as a passer, he'll have a high fantasy ceiling due to rushing upside.
148QB24Ryan TannehillQBTENTEN scooped Willis after he fell in the draft, but Tannehill can still hold onto his job if he plays well, and he has much more help at receiver now.
149QB25Davis MillsQBHOUHOU is building around Mills for the time being. He's a risk/reward QB in dynasty, but he could be a long-term starter if he plays well in 2022.
150QB26Mitch TrubiskyQBPIT
151QB27Jameis WinstonQBNOWinston leads this tier of usable QB2s for 2022, but all carry risk of being replaced either in-season or as soon as 2023.
152QB28Daniel JonesQBNYG
153QB29Matt RyanQBIND
154WR57George PickensWRPITPickens is a decent route-runner who can make big plays downfield, but he enters a talented receiving room and has injury concerns.
155WR58John MetchieWRHOUWhile unlikely to contribute much as a rookie, Metchie can be a good complement to Cooks and provides YAC ability as a receiver.
156WR59Alec PierceWRINDPierce can be a deep threat for IND and win contested catches but has some work to do as a route-runner and profiles as a no. 2 receiver.
157WR60Wan'Dale RobinsonWRNYGRobinson is a YAC playmaker who can be used in a variety of ways and could start for the Giants in the slot as a rookie.
158TE21Austin HooperTETEN
159TE22Tyler HigbeeTELAR
160TE23Hunter HenryTENE
161WR61Jarvis LandryWRNO
162RB49Rachaad WhiteRBTBWhite has good vision and agility as a receiver with a high weekly ceiling in PPR if he becomes the complement to Fournette on third-downs.
163RB50Darrell HendersonRBLAR
164RB51Tyrion Davis-PriceRBSFDavis-Price has experience in zone schemes and is a powerful runner. As a potential goal-line option for SF, he could be a TD-dependent flex.
165WR62Khalil ShakirWRBUFShakir is a versatile player who is great at creating YAC. He could quickly become a reliable outlet option for Allen and a solid PPR flex play.
166RB52Gus EdwardsRBBALDobbins could start the season on the PUP list, so Edwards has a chance to be a TD-dependent RB2 this year if he's healthier to open the year.
167RB53D'Onta ForemanRBCAR
168WR63Calvin RidleyWRATL
169TE24Jelani WoodsTEINDWith his athleticism and catch radius, Woods could become a red-zone threat for IND but figures to share snaps with Alie-Cox and Granson.
170TE25Trey McBrideTEARIMcBride is a good all-around TE and can make some big plays as a receiver, but he's a long-term hold given Ertz's presence in ARI.
171WR64Jalen TolbertWRDALTolbert has decent speed and hands to be a deep threat but has a ways to go in developing his route-running ability.
172WR65David BellWRCLEBell tested poorly at the combine but could seize the starting slot receiver role in CLE and see a fair amount of targets even as a rookie.
173RB54Tyler AllgeierRBATLAllgeier is a physical runner with good vision but lacks any elite traits. He can be an immediate contributor but probably won't see a ton of touches.
174RB55Hassan HaskinsRBTENA big, bruising back, Haskins is a high-upside fantasy handcuff in TEN who could see a lot of snaps if Henry were to miss time in 2022.
175WR66Tyquan ThorntonWRNEThornton's speed gives NE's offense a deep threat, but at best he'll be a boom or bust WR3 option in fantasy with NE favoring a run-heavy offense.
176WR67Justyn RossWRKCRoss's neck condition and surgery caused him to go undrafted, but if healthy, he can be a dominant WR prospect and is paired up with Mahomes.
177WR68Tyler BoydWRCIN
178WR69DeVante ParkerWRNE
179WR70Jakobi MeyersWRNE
180RB56Jerick McKinnonRBKCWith both Jones and CEH having missed time in recent seasons, McKinnon has RB2 upside if either RB ahead of him were to miss time in 2022.
181TE26Cameron BrateTETBWith Gronk retired for now, Brate steps into the pass-catching TE role for Brady, which makes him a TD-dependent TE2 for this coming season.
182RB57Trey SermonRBSF
183RB58Chuba HubbardRBCAR
184RB59James RobinsonRBJAX
185RB60Kene NwangwuRBMIN
186WR71Odell BeckhamWRFA
187RB61Kenneth GainwellRBPHI
188RB62Jamaal WilliamsRBDET
189RB63Nyheim HinesRBIND
190RB64Samaje PerineRBCIN
191RB65Chris EvansRBCIN
192QB30Desmond RidderQBATLAn athletic QB who can progress through reads, Ridder doesn't have many highlight-reel plays but is pro-ready and could beat out Mariota as a rookie.
193QB31Matt CorralQBCARAn accurate QB with fair mobility, Corral offers a high fantasy ceiling but fell in the draft due to alcohol-related concerns. He's a risk/reward prospect.
194QB32Sam HowellQBWASHowell needs to work on accuracy and pocket presence, but he could have a chance to start as a rookie if Wentz has a slew of poor games.
195WR72Tim PatrickWRDEN
196RB66Brian RobinsonRBWAS
197WR73Sammy WatkinsWRGB
198WR74Mecole HardmanWRKC
