2022 Fantasy Football: Wide Receiver Rankings

It is never too early to start getting ready for your 2022 fantasy draft. And I must say you have come to the right place! I already have my 2022 wide receiver rankings list set up for you. Below I have my top 70 receivers for the start of the season. But, remember this is an early list. It will be updated until the start of the season. I also gave a little analysis on my top-25 receivers below. Let’s get into this list.

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

2022 Wide Receiver Rankings

Note these rankings are based on half-PPR scoring.

1Cooper KuppLARRobert Woods is gone and no Odell Beckham. Kupp is the sure number one wide receiver in the draft.
2Justin JeffersonMINJustin Jefferson finished as the WR4 with 10 touchdowns and just over 1,500 yards. Adam Thielen is aging and Jefferson is growing more and more each year.
3Davante AdamsLVReunited with his college quarterback, Adams is sure to be as productive as he's ever been. Yes, he doesn't have Aaron Rodgers throwing to him, but Derek Carr can still air the ball out.
4Ja'Marr ChaseCINChase was a touchdown machine last season. He is Joe Burrow's favorite target and is sure to have a huge sophomore season.
5Deebo SamuelSFSamuel finished as the WR2 last season, does he repeat that? I don't think so, but he is still a huge part of this Niners' offense with his rushing ability.
6Stefon DiggsBUFDiggs drops a little bit, as Josh Allen steals a lot of red zones rushing touchdowns. But, Diggs will still be elite this year.
7CeeDee LambDALAmari Cooper is gone and this is when CeeDee Lamb takes over. He only had six touchdowns last year, but that is sure to grow with Cooper's absence.
8Mike EvansTBChris Godwin is expected to miss time with his ACL injury. This means Mike Evans will be Tom Brady's main target all season.
9A.J. BrownPHIBrown was injured most of the year but has a chance to have a huge comeback with a new team.
10Tyreek HillMIAHill drops in this list because he no longer has Patrick Mahomes II throwing to him. Hill will still be elite but have yet to see how he does in this offense and sharing the ball with Jaylen Waddle.
11Keenan AllenLACAllen is always a safe choice, a little injury prone. But, he still has a high ceiling every year.
12Diontae JohnsonPITJohnson was already the most targeted on the team with Juju Smith-Schuster on the roster. Now that he is gone, Johnson should see twice as many targets.
13Tee HigginsCINJa'Marr Chase is likely to be double-teamed, so this will leave Higgins to see some more targets. This Bengals team is dangerous and Higgins is to make an impact this season.
14Michael Pittman Jr.INDPittman had some huge games last season and finished with over 1,000 yards and six touchdowns. He is sure to be the number one again this season.
15DK MetcalfSEADrew Lock as the starting quarterback hurts Metcalf's production. He is still elite, but no longer has an elite quarterback throwing his way.
16Jaylen WaddleMIAWaddle had an impressive rookie season, finishing with over 1,000 yards and six touchdowns. Tyreek Hill will take away some of his targets but could open up opportunities for the second-year receiver.
17DJ MooreCARMoore is still the number one receiver of the bunch, but his consistency makes him questionable this season. He had the yards and receptions last season, but not the touchdowns.
18Amari CooperCLECooper still has elite talent and a high ceiling this season. If Deshaun Watson does play the full season, then Cooper should have a huge season.
19Terry McLaurinWASMcLaurin was highly inconsistent last season, but last season was just a fluke. The speedy receiver is sure to make a huge impact this season.
20Michael ThomasNOThomas missed all of last season, so he drops on this list as we see how he comes back after not playing for a year.
21Chris GodwinTBGodwin is expected to miss a lot of games this season. Yet, he will be a great receiver to have as you move into the playoffs.
22DeAndre HopkinsARIHopkins will miss six games this season due to a suspension. The Cardinals did not look good toward the end of last season, so it will be questionable how we see Hopkins return.
23Brandin CooksHOUCooks had some huge games last season and some not so huge. He truly is a boom or bust receiver.
24Elijah MooreNYJMoore is set to be the number one receiver this season and should make a huge sophomore jump. He had five touchdowns in just 11 games last season.
25Mike WilliamsLACWilliams was huge last season putting up 10 touchdowns. He is sure to finish inside the top 25 this season.
