Dynasty Football Rankings: 2022 Post-NFL Draft 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.

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
12RB7Joe MixonRBCIN
13RB8Austin EkelerRBLAC
14RB9Dalvin CookRBMIN
15WR5Jaylen WaddleWRMIA
16WR6DK MetcalfWRSEA
17WR7Deebo SamuelWRSF
18WR8Tee HigginsWRCIN
19WR9Drake 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.
20WR10Jameson 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.
21TE2Mark 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.
22QB1Josh AllenQBBUF
23QB2Patrick 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.
24QB3Justin HerbertQBLAC
25QB4Lamar JacksonQBBAL
26QB5Kyler MurrayQBARIARI quieted swirling rumors of Murray's discontent by trading for Marquise Brown, which alleviates concerns about his commitment and surrounding cast.
27WR11Stefon DiggsWRBUF
28RB10Breece 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.
29TE3Travis KelceTEKC
30TE4George KittleTESF
31WR12Davante AdamsWRLVR
32WR13Tyreek HillWRMIA
33WR14Diontae JohnsonWRPIT
34RB11Antonio GibsonRBWAS
35RB12Nick ChubbRBCLE
36RB13Cam AkersRBLAR
37RB14Elijah MitchellRBSF
38RB15Alvin KamaraRBNO
39RB16Ezekiel ElliottRBDAL
40WR15Courtland SuttonWRDEN
41WR16Jerry JeudyWRDEN
42WR17AJ 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.
43WR18Michael PittmanWRIND
44WR19Marquise 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.
45WR20Garrett 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.
46RB17Leonard FournetteRBTB
47RB18Derrick HenryRBTEN
48WR21Chris GodwinWRTB
50WR23Elijah MooreWRNYJ
51WR24Terry McLaurinWRWAS
52RB19David MontgomeryRBCHI
53RB20Aaron JonesRBGB
54RB21Josh JacobsRBLVRWith the Raiders having declined his fifth-year option, Jacobs's future looks murky, but he'll be a fine RB2 option for 2022.
55WR25Mike 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.
56WR26Keenan AllenWRLAC
57WR27Allen 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.
58WR28Amari CooperWRCLE
59WR29Chris 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.
60QB6Trey LanceQBSF
61QB7Deshaun WatsonQBCLEBased on Watson's court proceedings, there's a chance that he won't face any suspension in 2022. He's quickly vaulting back into the top-5 QBs.
62QB8Joe BurrowQBCIN
63QB9Russell WilsonQBDEN
64QB10Dak PrescottQBDAL
65WR30DeAndre 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.
66RB22JK DobbinsRBBAL
67RB23Travis EtienneRBJAX
68TE5TJ HockensonTEDET
69TE6Darren WallerTELVR
70WR31Rashod 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.
71WR32DeVonta SmithWRPHI
72WR33Skyy 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.
73RB24Kenneth 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.
74RB25AJ DillonRBGB
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.
76WR34Treylon 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.
77QB11Trevor LawrenceQBJAX
78QB12Justin 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.
79QB13Matthew StaffordQBLAR
80QB14Jalen 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.
81QB15Tua TagovailoaQBMIA
82QB16Derek 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.
83RB27James ConnerRBARI
84WR35Mike WilliamsWRLAC
85WR36Brandin CooksWRHOU
86WR37Michael ThomasWRNO
87WR38Christian 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.
88WR39Gabriel 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.
89WR40JuJu Smith-SchusterWRKC
90RB28Clyde Edwards-HelaireRBKC
91WR41Brandon AiyukWRSF
92TE7Dalton SchultzTEDAL
93TE8Dawson KnoxTEBUF
94WR42Amon-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.
95WR43Rondale MooreWRARI
96RB29Damien HarrisRBNE
97RB30Miles SandersRBPHI
98RB31Ronald 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.
99RB32Isaiah 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.
100WR44Chase 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.
101RB33Kareem HuntRBCLE
102TE9Mike GesickiTEMIA
103TE10Dallas GoedertTEPHI
104TE11Pat FreiermuthTEPIT
105QB17Tom 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.
106QB18Aaron RodgersQBGB
107QB19Zach WilsonQBNYJThe Jets added an impact RB and WR to Wilson's supporting cast during the draft, which should make life easier for Wilson.
108WR45Christian KirkWRJAX
109WR46Jahan 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.
110TE12Zach 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.
111TE13Albert OkwuebunamTEDEN
112RB34Michael 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.
113TE14Noah FantTESEA
114WR47Kadarius ToneyWRNYGToney's off-field past and rumors that the Giants' new management is already looking to trade Toney don't bode well for his long-term success.
115WR48Adam ThielenWRMIN
116WR49Tyler LockettWRSEA
117RB35Chase EdmondsRBMIA
118RB36Cordarrelle PattersonRBATL
119RB37Rashaad PennyRBSEA
120RB38Tony PollardRBDAL
121RB39Alexander MattisonRBMIN
122RB40Rhamondre StevensonRBNE
123RB41Khalil HerbertRBCHI
124TE15Evan EngramTEJAX
125TE16David NjokuTECLE
126WR50Darnell MooneyWRCHI
127WR51Michael GallupWRDAL
128RB42Pierre 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.
129RB43Dameon PierceRBHOUA good runner who powers through contact, Pierce should be HOU's early-down back but offers limited fantasy upside barring major TD production.
130RB44Melvin 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.
131WR52Kenny GolladayWRNYG
132WR53Robert WoodsWRTEN
133TE17Irv Smith JrTEMIN
134TE18Cole 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.
135TE19Logan 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.
136TE20Robert TonyanTEGB
137QB20Malik 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.
138QB21Kirk CousinsQBMIN
139QB22Mac JonesQBNE
140WR54Russell 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.
141WR55Hunter 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.
142RB45Zamir 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.
143WR56George PickensWRPITPickens is a decent route-runner who can make big plays downfield, but he enters a talented receiving room and has injury concerns.
144WR57John MetchieWRHOUWhile unlikely to contribute much as a rookie, Metchie can be a good complement to Cooks and provides YAC ability as a receiver.
145WR58Alec 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.
146WR59Wan'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.
147TE21Rob GronkowskiTEFAGronk has yet to officially return, but the odds are good that he'll return for a final season and shot at another ring with Brady back from retirement.
148TE22Austin HooperTETEN
149TE23Tyler HigbeeTELAR
150TE24Hunter HenryTENE
151WR60Jarvis LandryWRFALandry has yet to sign, but he's a strong slot option for whatever team ultimately gets him and can be a fantasy WR3 in the right offense.
152RB46Gus EdwardsRBBALBoth Dobbins and Edwards are coming off major injuries, so there's a non-zero chance that Edwards could carve out a significant role in BAL.
153RB47JD McKissicRBWAS
154RB48Tyrion 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.
155RB49Isaih PachecoRBKCAny RB tied to Mahomes piques interest. Pacheco is a tough runner and good pass protector with long-term upside with Jones on a one-year deal.
156WR61Khalil 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.
157QB23Kenny 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.
158QB24Ryan 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.
159QB25Davis 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.
160RB50Devin 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.
161RB51D'Onta ForemanRBCAR
162RB52Darrell HendersonRBLAR
163WR62Calvin RidleyWRATL
164WR63Allen 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.
165TE25Jelani 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.
166TE26Trey 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.
167WR64Jalen TolbertWRDALTolbert has decent speed and hands to be a deep threat but has a ways to go in developing his route-running ability.
168RB53Tyler 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.
169RB54Rachaad 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.
170RB55Hassan 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.
171WR65Justyn 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.
172WR66Tyler BoydWRCIN
173QB26Desmond 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.
174QB27Matt 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.
175QB28Jameis WinstonQBNOWinston leads this tier of usable QB2s for 2022, but all carry risk of being replaced either in-season or as soon as 2023.
176QB29Daniel JonesQBNYG
177QB30Mitch TrubiskyQBPIT
178QB31Matt RyanQBIND
179WR67DeVante ParkerWRNE

187RB60Jamaal WilliamsRBDET
188WR71Zay JonesWRJAX
189WR72Tyquan 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.
