2022 Fantasy Football: Top-200 Redraft PPR Rankings

These 2022 fantasy football PPR rankings are fluid and should be used as a general guide to value players. Every league is different, and you know your league best. There’s always that guy who drafts Patrick Mahomes in the first round, or maybe you know a homer in your league who will gladly draft Jameis Winston in the second round. Attack various positions based on your knowledge about your league mates to extract maximum value from each pick, but here is my overall draft strategy for each position.

As a general rule of thumb, you’ll find that quarterbacks are placed fairly late in my PPR rankings below, as there are plenty of productive starters in 1QB formats. Josh Allen is likely to go way too early in many leagues, so wait for other guys with elite rushing upside like Jalen Hurts or Trey Lance available a round or more later. If you pass on that tier, productive veterans like Tom Brady and Matthew Stafford shouldn’t be overlooked. In normal 10 or 12-team leagues, there’s no need to roster a backup quarterback unless your league hoards at the position.

What!? Your league wasn’t hosted on Fantrax this season!? Once you see how Fantrax stacks up to the competition, we think you’ll be singing a different tune next season.

Running backs with secure workloads are scarce, so they are prioritized in the early rounds of my PPR rankings. Don’t be scared away from guys returning from injury like Saquon Barkley and Travis Etienne, as both should be fully healthy heading into 2022. If you do select some elite wide receivers or tight ends early instead, there are plenty of upside running backs in the middle rounds. Target upside RB3s with massive upside like James Cook and Isaiah Spiller at their respective ADPs later on or grab some pass-catching backs who’ll see target volume like J.D. McKissic or Nyheim Hines.

Attack upside wide receivers in the middle rounds and then wait to grab a couple of depth guys late. Rookies who could see immediate volume like Drake London and Jalen Tolbert are currently undervalued, as both project for starting roles in Week 1. Older veterans like Allen Robinson and Courtland Sutton are undervalued as well with both having seen major quarterback upgrades this offseason. And while other teams reach for depth wide receivers with flashier names, grab no. 3 receivers like Russell Gage and Jamison Crowder in productive offenses later in drafts. Both are higher in my rankings than ADP, as these wide receivers could possibly see far more targets than many are projecting early in the year.

There are few tight ends projected to be the no. 1 receiver for their respective teams, and I do think that positional scarcity warrants selecting Travis Kelce, Kyle Pitts, and Mark Andrews fairly early in the first three rounds. If you forgo an elite tight end, you can target later-round tight ends like Robert Tonyan and Gerald Everett, all of whom project to be primary red-zone reads for elite quarterbacks.

The majority of your bench should focus on high-upside running backs, whether they’re handcuffs with RB1 potential or devalued backs in a committee who have a shot at winning the starting job. Everyone knows about Tony Pollard and A.J. Dillon, but don’t forget about Darrel Williams and Khalil Herbert. Some potential sleepers to target in very deep leagues, whether it’s 16 teams or 30-man rosters, could be Jordan Mason or Pierre Strong. These rookies could make an impact far sooner than expected.

Here are my top-200 fantasy football rankings for the 2022 season for full PPR scoring. Best of luck! And be sure to check back for updated rankings as we near the season. Injuries are sure to happen, and other changing situations will shake up these PPR rankings as well.

2022 PPR Rankings

Last updated on Tuesday, June 21st.

RankPos RkPlayerPosTeamComments
1RB1Jonathan TaylorRBINDInjuries can strike any player, but Taylor is the youngest of the workhorse RBs without any significant injury history, making him the safest 1.01.
2RB2Christian McCaffreyRBCAR
3RB3Dalvin CookRBMIN
4WR1Cooper KuppWRLARThis tier of WRs all have safe floors and top overall WR ceiling, making them the safest first-round picks behind the top workhorse RBs.
5RB4Leonard FournetteRBTBPrior to his Week 15 hamstring injury last year, Fournette was the no. 5 RB in PPR PPG. There's no reason he should fall to Round 2.
6RB5Austin EkelerRBLAC
7WR2Justin JeffersonWRMIN
8TE1Travis KelceTEKCWith Hill in MIA, Kelce becomes the clear no. 1 target and should be in for another season of monster target volume.
9RB6Aaron JonesRBGB
10RB7Joe MixonRBCIN
11WR3Ja'Marr ChaseWRCIN
12WR4Stefon DiggsWRBUF
13WR5CeeDee LambWRDALWith Cooper gone and Gallup coming off an ACL tear, Lamb projects to be the top target in DAL with a WR2 floor and top-5 WR ceiling.
14WR6Mike EvansWRTBWith Brown gone and Godwin coming off an ACL tear, Evans is poised to be a target hog early on and should score double digit TDs again.
15RB8Saquon BarkleyRBNYGBarkley was an elite PPR RB when healthy last year, and the entire Giants offense should be more efficient with Daboll replacing Judge.
16TE2Kyle PittsTEATLDon't discount Pitts simply because of Mariota. He should be a target magnet considering ATL's lack of WR talent and poor defense.
17RB9Najee HarrisRBPIT
18RB10D'Andre SwiftRBDET
19RB11Derrick HenryRBTENHenry has been the exception to every rule, but at 28 years old and coming off a major foot injury, approach him with caution this year.
20RB12Alvin KamaraRBNOKamara would be higher were it not for a potential suspension stemming from his Vegas incident. Keep an eye on his status coming up.
21WR7Davante AdamsWRLVRBoth Adams and Hill saw QB downgrades this offseason. They're still WR1s but are no longer locked-in top-5 WRs worth 1st round picks.
22WR8Tyreek HillWRMIA
23WR9Tee HigginsWRCIN
24WR10Deebo SamuelWRSF
25WR11Keenan AllenWRLAC
26WR12Michael PittmanWRIND
27WR13Courtland SuttonWRDENSutton profiles similarly to Metcalf, and with Jeudy potentially facing a suspension to start the year, Sutton has top-5 WR upside early on.
28WR14Allen RobinsonWRCHIMcVay's offense made both Kupp and Woods top-15 WRs with Goff at the helm. With Stafford, Robinson is a massive bounce-back candidate.
29RB13Cam AkersRBLAR
30RB14Javonte WilliamsRBDEN
31RB15Ezekiel ElliottRBDAL
32RB16Nick ChubbRBCLE
33WR15Mike WilliamsWRLAC
34WR16Marquise BrownWRARIWith Hopkins suspended for 6 games, Brown has rapport with his former college QB and will see a ton of targets in a fast-paced ARI offense.
35QB1Josh AllenQBBUF
36QB2Justin HerbertQBLAC
37WR17Brandin CooksWRHOU
38WR18A.J. BrownWRPHI
39RB17Travis EtienneRBJAX
40RB18Elijah MitchellRBSF
41TE3Mark AndrewsTEBALAndrews benefited greatly in 2021 from Huntley's inability to throw downfield and BAL's injured defense forcing more passes. Don't reach for him.
42QB3Kyler MurrayQBARI
43QB4Lamar JacksonQBBAL
44QB5Patrick MahomesQBKC
45QB6Jalen HurtsQBPHIPHI added AJ Brown and shored up the OL. With his rushing production, Hurts is a locked-in QB1 with top-3 upside if he develops as a passer.
46QB7Trey LanceQBSFLike Hurts, Lance has a strong OL, good surrounding weapons, and rushing upside. He's a strong QB1 option with top-3 upside as well.
47TE4George KittleTESF
48WR19Amari CooperWRCLE
49WR20Diontae JohnsonWRPIT
50WR21D.J. MooreWRCAR
51WR22Terry McLaurinWRWAS
52WR23Jerry JeudyWRDENA lot depends on whether the NFL will suspend Jeudy for his recent legal issues. If not, he'll jump up the rankings a bit.
53RB19James ConnerRBARI
54RB20Josh JacobsRBLVR
55RB21David MontgomeryRBCHI
56RB22Antonio GibsonRBWAS
57WR24Adam ThielenWRMINHealth is a concern, but Thielen was the no. 9 WR in PPR PPG through Week 12 last year prior to his injury and is a steal at his current ADP.
58WR25Rashod BatemanWRBAL
59WR26Drake LondonWRATLLondon profiles as a true no. 1 WR and joins an ATL WR room devoid of talent. He should command immediate target volume even as a rookie.
60WR27Russell GageWRTBWith Godwin likely not ready or not 100% healthy to start the season, Gage has top-15 WR upside early on and WR2 potential for the year.
61RB23Breece HallRBNYJ
62RB24Miles SandersRBPHI
63RB25Damien HarrisRBNEEven in a NE RBBC, Harris has huge weekly TD upside considering NE was 7th in run rate both overall as well as in the red zone in 2021.
64RB26J.K. DobbinsRBBALIt sounds like Dobbins could start the year on the PUP list and isn't close to 100% with the additional LCL component on top of his ACL tear.
65WR28Jaylen WaddleWRMIA
66WR29D.K. MetcalfWRSEA
67RB27Chase EdmondsRBMIA
68RB28Clyde Edwards-HelaireRBKC
69WR30DeAndre HopkinsWRARIThere's an argument that 6 extra weeks of rest is a silver lining of Hopkins's suspension. He could still finish as a WR2 in 2022.
70WR31Chris GodwinWRTBThere's risk that Godwin could start the season on the PUP list and might not be 100% healthy until late in the year, if at all in 2022.
71RB29A.J. DillonRBGB
72WR32Darnell MooneyWRCHI
73WR33Gabriel DavisWRBUF
74WR34Brandon AiyukWRSFLast year, Samuel was undervalued. This year, Aiyuk is being forgotten despite his production with Samuel and Samuel's long injury history.
75WR35Elijah MooreWRNYJ
76WR36Amon-Ra St. BrownWRDETSt. Brown should see plenty of targets with Goff's propensity to target the slot. Just don't expect elite WR1 production like he had late in 2021.
77QB8Matthew StaffordQBLAR
78QB9Russell WilsonQBDEN
79QB10Tom BradyQBTB
80TE5Darren WallerTELVR
81TE6T.J. HockensonTEDET
82TE7Dalton SchultzTEDAL
83TE8Zach ErtzTEARI
84RB30Melvin GordonRBDEN
85RB31James CookRBBUFCook should immediately see some passing-down work with the potential to take over as the lead back in an efficient BUF offense.
86QB11Joe BurrowQBCINCIN's playoff success overshadows the fact that he was just the no. fantasy 9 QB in PPG last season and is due for some TD regression.
87QB12Aaron RodgersQBGB
88QB13Dak PrescottQBDAL
89RB32Ronald JonesRBKC
90RB33Devin SingletaryRBBUF
91RB34J.D. McKissicRBWASIn 12 games together last season, Gibson was the RB21 and McKissic the RB27 in PPR PPG. There's no reason for their vast gap in ADP.
92WR37Chris OlaveWRNOWith Thomas's health still in question this close to the season, Olave's upside with Winston under center is being underrated.
93WR38JuJu Smith-SchusterWRKC
94WR39Kenny GolladayWRNYG
95WR40Michael ThomasWRNOThere are whispers that Thomas still isn't 100% healed from his ankle surgery. If he looks good in training camp, he'll move up the rankings.
96WR41Allen LazardWRGBWith Adams gone, Lazard has the most rapport with Rodgers among the current WRs in GB and could lead the team in targets this year.
97WR42Christian KirkWRJAX
98WR43DeVonta SmithWRPHI
99WR44Robert WoodsWRTENWoods is expected to be ready to start the season and shouldn't be overlooked despite TEN's addition of Burks during the draft.
100WR45Skyy MooreWRKCIt's difficult to project what KC's passing offense will look like with Hill gone, but this is a good range to target Mahomes's talented new rookie WR.
101WR46Treylon BurksWRTEN
102RB35Kareem HuntRBCLE
103RB36Isaiah SpillerRBLACSpiller's combine results were disappointing, but he's a good all-around RB and should immediately win the 1B role in the LAC backfield.
104RB37Darrel WilliamsRBARIConner has never played a full season, so there's opportunity for Williams to play the Edmonds role with added upside if Conner were to miss time.
105RB38Tony PollardRBDAL
106RB39Rhamondre StevensonRBNE
107RB40Alexander MattisonRBMIN
108RB41Khalil HerbertRBCHI
109TE9Dawson KnoxTEBUF
110TE10Cole KmetTECHICHI's WR room is pretty barren behind Mooney. There's a real chance that Kmet could emerge as Fields's no. 2 target in 2022.
111WR47Chase ClaypoolWRPIT
112WR48Jalen TolbertWRDALGallup had ACL surgery in Feb and could miss a large part of the 2022 season. Tolbert could be an immediate starter alongside Lamb.
113WR49Jarvis LandryWRNO
114WR50Tyler LockettWRSEALockett's production was reliant on rapport with Wilson, and Lock's accuracy leaves much to be desired. A trade for Lockett would be ideal.
115WR51Garrett WilsonWRNYJ
116QB14Justin FieldsQBCHIEven with CHI failing to add much OL or WR help this offseason, Fields's rushing production keeps him in that high-end QB2 range.
117QB15Derek CarrQBLVRLVR added Adams, and MIA added Hill. Both Carr and Tua are strong QB2 options with top-10 QB potential on the season.
118QB16Tua TagovailoaQBMIA
119QB17Kirk CousinsQBMIN
120TE11Evan EngramTEJAXAfter Dan Arnold's trade to JAX last year and prior to injury, he was averaging 7.6 targets per game. Don't sleep on Engram's target potential.
121TE12Dallas GoedertTEPHI
122RB42Cordarrelle PattersonRBATL
123RB43Rashaad PennyRBSEA
124RB44Kenneth WalkerRBSEA
125TE13Robert TonyanTEGBTonyan predictably saw massive TD regression in 2021, but he could resume his role as a primary red-zone target for Rodgers with Adams gone.
126TE14Mike GesickiTEMIA
127TE15Pat FreiermuthTEPIT
128TE16Logan ThomasTEWAS
129RB45Mark IngramRBNOKamara could face a suspension for his Vegas incident, which means that Ingram could have RB1 upside for a few weeks and a flex thereafter.
130RB46Nyheim HinesRBIND
131RB47Gus EdwardsRBBALWith the possibility of Dobbins starting the year on the PUP list, Edwards could be a TD-dependent RB2 to open to season if he's healthy.
132RB48Jerick McKinnonRBKCBoth Jones and CEH have missed time in recent seasons due to injury, so McKinnon is a great late-round handcuff with RB2 upside.
133RB49Tyrion Davis-PriceRBSF
134WR52Kadarius ToneyWRNYG
135WR53Tyler BoydWRCIN
136WR54Zay JonesWRJAXJAX paid Jones a 3-year, $24M contract this offseason. He should be a starter opposite Kirk but is somehow going undrafted in many leagues?
137WR55Hunter RenfrowWRLVRLike Waller, Adams's presence caps Renfrow's target volume as well after a 2021 season where he captured a 22% team target share.
138WR56Rondale MooreWRARI
139WR57Jamison CrowderWRBUFWhoever is BUF's starting slot WR will have flex value or more in PPR, so take a shot on Crowder if you think he can stay healthy and Shakir if not.
140WR58Khalil ShakirWRBUF
141WR59Sterling ShepardWRNYG
142RB50Snoop ConnerRBJAX
143RB51Dameon PierceRBHOU
144RB52Rex BurkheadRBHOUMany are high on the rookie Pierce, but it wouldn't be shocking if Burkhead is the most productive HOU RB given his pass-catching role.
145RB53Marlon MackRBHOU
146RB54Rachaad WhiteRBTBWhite is likely just a change of pace RB behind Fournette, but he'd have immense upside if Fournette were to miss any time.
147RB55Jamaal WilliamsRBDET
148RB56Darrell HendersonRBLAR
149TE17Gerald EverettTELAC
150TE18Irv SmithTEMIN
151WR60Marquez Valdes-ScantlingWRKC
152TE19Albert OkwuegbunamTEDEN
153TE20Cameron BrateTETBWith Gronk retired for now, Brate assumes the primary pass-catching TE role with Brady, which makes him a TD-dependent fantasy TE2.
154RB57Samaje PerineRBCIN
155RB58Chris EvansRBCIN
156RB59Trey SermonRBSF
157QB18Trevor LawrenceQBJAX
158QB19Zach WilsonQBNYJ
159QB20Deshaun WatsonQBCLEThere's a possibility that Watson could play by the second half of the season, so he's a decent stash if your league allows suspended players on IR.
160RB60Tyler AllgeierRBATL
161RB61Abram SmithRBNO
162WR61DeVante ParkerWRNE
163WR62Jameson WilliamsWRDET

174TE23Tyler HigbeeTELAR
175WR67Jakobi MeyersWRNE
176WR68Kendrick BourneWRNE
177TE24Austin HooperTETENIt wasn't so long ago that Hooper was a TE1 in ATL. He could have a nice bounce back if he develops red-zone rapport with Tannehill.
178TE25David NjokuTECLE
179RB64D'Onta ForemanRBCARCAR signing Foreman this offseason could indicate a lack of faith in Hubbard or maybe a GL role for Foreman even with McCaffrey healthy.
180WR69K.J. HamlerWRDEN
181WR70Tim PatrickWRDEN
182WR71Randall CobbWRGBCobb scored 5 TDs in 2021. With his chemistry with Rodgers and Adams gone, he could once again see a bigger target share this season.
183WR72Amari RodgersWRGB
184RB65Benny SnellRBPIT
185RB66Chuba HubbardRBCAR
186WR73Robby AndersonWRCAR
187WR74Sammy WatkinsWRGB
188RB67Matt BreidaRBNYG
189RB68James WhiteRBNEWhite could reclaim his passing-down role, making his current ADP a steal. He could also be cut if not fully healthy, making Strong a sleeper.
