Superflex Dynasty Rankings: 2022 Fantasy Playoffs Update

Many dynasty football leagues now play in a superflex format. There are stark contrasts in quarterback value versus other skill positions in superflex dynasty football rankings due to positional scarcity, so you’ll notice that I have many quarterbacks ranked higher overall. Beyond that, there are even nuances that change where quarterbacks are ranked within the position.

Quarterback age and starting longevity are far bigger priorities in superflex formats, which changes how I have quarterbacks ranked between the formats. In 1QB leagues, quarterback prospects with upside are coveted over safe starters because backup quarterbacks are rarely needed outside of injuries and bye weeks. However, in superflex leagues, consistent producers at QB2 and QB3 on dynasty rosters are necessary depth since it’s beneficial for the vast majority of teams start two quarterbacks every week.

The influx of a talented 2022 rookie class has shaken up these superflex dynasty rankings a bit, as quite a few quarterbacks gained receiving weapons and upgrades to their surrounding cast during the NFL Draft. Many players’ values are also dependent on whether a roster is contending for a title or in the process of rebuilding, but in general, dynasty rankings align much more closely with rest-of-season redraft rankings in-season. Here are my updated top-200 ranked players assuming a superflex format with PPR scoring (you can find my 1QB dynasty rankings here) as we approach the fantasy playoffs. And be sure to check back for updated superflex dynasty rankings at the start of next offseason!

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.

RankPos RkPlayerPosTeamComments
1QB1Patrick MahomesQBKC
2QB2Lamar JacksonQBBALJackson's rushing production gives him a QB1 floor, and the Monken hiring and WR additions give him potential to repeat as MVP.
3QB3Jalen HurtsQBPHI
4QB4Josh AllenQBBUF
5QB5Joe BurrowQBCIN
6QB6Justin FieldsQBCHI
7WR1Justin JeffersonWRMIN
8WR2Ja'Marr ChaseWRCIN
9QB7Anthony RichardsonQBINDRichardson might be the most athletic QB in the history of the NFL. He's immediately a top-12 fantasy QB with top-5 upside.
10RB1Bijan RobinsonRBATLRobinson has elite RB1 potential as a workhorse in Arthur Smith's efficient run scheme if Ridder can be even an average QB.
11QB8Justin HerbertQBLAC
12QB9Trevor LawrenceQBJAC
14WR4Jaylen WaddleWRMIA
15WR5Garrett WilsonWRNYJ
16RB2Jonathan TaylorRBINDTaylor could be risky if he remains in IND, but a trade could increase his fantasy value if he goes somewhere with more receiving usage.
17RB3Breece HallRBNYJHall's early-season ceiling is likely capped with Cook there, but he still has league-winning upside over the second half of the year.
18RB4Christian McCaffreyRBSF
19RB5Saquon BarkleyRBNYGNow that Barkley has signed his one-year deal for 2023, he's a top-5 RB for 2023 with reports of heavy involvement as a receiver.
20QB10Tua TagovailoaQBMIA
21QB11Dak PrescottQBDAL
22QB12Deshaun WatsonQBCLE
23TE1Mark AndrewsTEBALWith more passing volume expected under Monken, Andrews has the potential to close the gap with Kelce or even usurp him.
24WR6Amon-Ra St. BrownWRDET
25WR7CeeDee LambWRDAL
26WR8Chris OlaveWRNO
27QB13Kyler MurrayQBARIWith ARI potentially holding the No. 1 and No. 2 overall picks for the 2024 NFL Draft, Murray might be on the move next year.
28QB14Bryce YoungQBCARThe size concerns will linger, but outside of that, Young's profile gives him a fairly safe floor as a serviceable QB2 in fantasy.
29QB15CJ StroudQBHOUThe biggest concern is whether Stroud can succeed in a dysfunctional HOU organization. That and whether he'll run more in the NFL.
30WR9Drake LondonWRATL
31WR10DeVonta SmithWRPHI
32WR11Tee HigginsWRCIN
33RB6Austin EkelerRBLACWith Ekeler having restructured his deal to stay in LAC for 2023, he's in line for another top-12 RB season despite the looming age cliff.
34TE2Travis KelceTEKC
35WR12Tyreek HillWRMIAHill is nearing 30 but is still an elite top-3 WR for 2023 with his speed in Mike McDaniel's offense.
36RB7Jahmyr GibbsRBDETMontgomery will vulture some TDs, but Gibbs can be a strong RB2 with RB1 upside with projected receiving usage.
37WR13DK MetcalfWRSEA
38WR14Jaxon Smith-NjigbaWRSEAJSN may start slowly with the wrist injury and Metcalf and Lockett there, but he has plenty of long-term WR1 upside.
39WR15Zay FlowersWRBALMany dislike the landing spot, but Flowers has a chance to be BAL's No. 1 WR role in an aggressive Todd Monken-led passing attack.
40RB8Josh JacobsRBLVEven assuming Jacobs plays, he's at risk for major regression following a massive 400-touch season in 2022.
41WR16Cooper KuppWRLAR
42WR17Stefon DiggsWRBUF
43WR18Davante AdamsWRLV
44TE3Kyle PittsTEATL
45WR19Deebo SamuelWRSF
46WR20Marquise BrownWRARIStill in his prime at age 26, Brown was WR7 in PPR PPG from Weeks 1-6 without Hopkins. He has WR2 upside regardless of Murray's status.
47RB9Tony PollardRBDALOne of the most efficient RBs running behind a top-5 OL means elite fantasy upside in 2023.
48RB10Rhamondre StevensonRBNEEven with NE having signed Zeke, Stevenson is slated to be the lead back and see plenty of usage as a receiver.
49RB11Nick ChubbRBCLEThe best pure runner in the NFL might finally see more pass game usage in 2023, which makes him a strong RB1 option.
50QB16Daniel JonesQBNYGJones was a top-10 fantasy QB last year due to rushing, and NYG added Darren Waller and Jalin Hyatt this offseason.
51QB17Kirk CousinsQBMIN
52RB12Travis EtienneRBJACReports are that Bigsby and Hasty are both going to be involved, which caps Etienne's weekly ceiling in fantasy.
53RB13Kenneth WalkerRBSEAAdding Charbonnet in Rd 2 clearly signals that SEA intends to utilize a committee backfield, which limits Walker's fantasy ceiling.
54RB14Najee HarrisRBPITHarris is still the lead back in PIT, but Warren's complementary role reduces his volume and fantasy ceiling.
55TE4George KittleTESF
56TE5Dallas GoedertTEPHI
57TE6TJ HockensonTEMIN
58TE7Dalton KincaidTEBUFKincaid's usage in the slot this preseason is encouraging for his potential to produce as a back-end TE1 even as a rookie.
59TE8Darren WallerTENYG
60QB18Brock PurdyQBSFPurdy seems to have Shanahan's confidence and is a good fit for Shanahan's system even if his TD rate regresses.
61QB19Kenny PickettQBPIT
62WR21Chris GodwinWRTB
64WR23Terry McLaurinWRWAS
65WR24Diontae JohnsonWRPIT
66RB15JK DobbinsRBBALThe hope is that Dobbins will have an expanded pass game role in Monken's new offensive scheme.
67WR25Quentin JohnstonWRLACJohnston has been inconsistent in camp but still have massive upside with both Allen and Williams having missed a lot of time with injuries.
68WR26Jordan AddisonWRMINIt's hard to project elite ceiling for Addison alongside Jefferson and Hockenson, but he can have some big games.
69QB20Trey LanceQBSFLance still has elite upside, but it seems like it will take another injury to Purdy for him to get a shot at the starting job at this point.
70QB21Geno SmithQBSEASEA passing on a rookie QB in Round 1 and adding JSN gives Smith a fair fantasy floor and ceiling for 2023.
71QB22Jared GoffQBDETGoff should hold off Hooker for the starting job for at least 2023, and the addition of Gibbs and LaPorta gives Goff top-12 upside.
72RB16Dameon PierceRBHOUIt was encouraging to see Pierce used in a 3-down role in the preseason with Singletary as just the COP back.
73RB17Javonte WilliamsRBDENThere's cautious optimism that Williams is ahead of schedule and on track to play Week 1, though he may not be 100% until midseason.
74RB18Joe MixonRBCINNow that Mixon has restructured his contract to stay in CIN, he's poised to be a strong RB2 with RB1 upside for contending teams.
75WR27Calvin RidleyWRJACRidley has shown well in the preseason and has top-15 WR upside with Lawrence, but he'll be 30 years old next season.
76WR28Amari CooperWRCLE
77WR29Jerry JeudyWRDEN
78WR30Jahan DotsonWRWAS
79WR31Michael PittmanWRIND
80RB19Alexander MattisonRBMINWith Cook gone, Mattison is in line for the lead role in MIN and can be a solid RB2 heading into 2023.
81RB20James CookRBBUFCooks seems to be the clear lead back for BUF, though it remains to be seen how many targets he'll get from a mobile QB in Allen.
82RB21Isiah PachecoRBKCPacheco is on track to play Week 1, but McKinnon coming in on passing downs continues to limit his ceiling.
83RB22De'Von AchaneRBMIAAchane won't be a reliable fantasy starter early on but has league-winning upside if he sees a significant role in the second half of the season.
84RB23Zach CharbonnetRBSEAIt's likely to be a committee with Walker, but Charbonnet could still see a valuable receiving role for fantasy purposes.
85WR32Christian WatsonWRGBWatson showed his raw athleticism as a rookie, but he's still a WIP, and it's unknown how well Love will run this offense.
86WR33DeAndre HopkinsWRTENHopkins should lead TEN in targets for 2023, but declining efficiency keeps him in the WR2/3 range even for contending teams.
87WR34Brandon AiyukWRSF
88WR35George PickensWRPIT
89WR36Treylon BurksWRTEN
90RB24Alvin KamaraRBNOWith only a 3-game suspension, Kamara can still be a strong RB2 with back-end RB1 upside for contending teams.
91QB23Mac JonesQBNE
92QB24Derek CarrQBNO
93RB25AJ DillonRBGB
94RB26Aaron JonesRBGB
95RB27Rachaad WhiteRBTB
96RB28Cam AkersRBLAR
97RB29James ConnerRBARI
98RB30Miles SandersRBCAR
99RB31D'Andre SwiftRBPHI
100RB32Derrick HenryRBTEN
101RB33Dalvin CookRBNYJCook can be a solid flex early in the year as the Jets ease Hall back into action from his ACL injury.
102WR37Christian KirkWRJAC
103WR38Rashod BatemanWRBAL
104TE9Sam LaPortaTEDETLaPorta has secured the starting TE role in DET and could see expanded targets to open the year with Jameson Williams suspended 6 games.
105TE10Pat FreiermuthTEPIT
106TE11Dalton SchultzTEHOU
107QB25Jordan LoveQBGB
108WR39Keenan AllenWRLAC
109WR40Tyler LockettWRSEA
110RB34Jaylen WarrenRBPITWarren projects for a 60/40 split with Harris, which gives him some standalone flex value with RB2 upside if Harris were to miss time.
111RB35Tank BigsbyRBJACJAX has been looking for a complement for Etienne since they traded James Robinson, and Bigsby could be the goal-line back.
112WR41Skyy MooreWRKCMoore appears to be KC's starting slot WR heading into the season, which gives him WR3 potential.
113WR42Jameson WilliamsWRDETWilliams is dealing with a hamstring injury, which adds to his risk on top of his 6-game suspension.
114WR43Marvin MimsWRDENMims has excellent speed to stretch the field and projects to be the No. 3 WR alongside Jeudy and Sutton with Patrick done for the year.
115WR44Brandin CooksWRDAL
116WR45Mike EvansWRTB
117WR46Courtland SuttonWRDEN
118WR47Elijah MooreWRCLEThere have been continued reports of Moore's rapport with Watson this preseason, which gives him bounce-back potential in 2023.
119QB26Desmond RidderQBATL
120QB27Sam HowellQBWAS
121QB28Will LevisQBTENLevis may not play much in 2023 but could be the starter for TEN heading into 2024 depending on how the Titans perform this year.
122TE12Michael MayerTELVMayer can be a good possession receiver and red-zone threat but probably won't have the same kind of yardage Waller saw when healthy.
123QB29Aaron RodgersQBNYJRodgers has good surrounding talent on offense in NY, but he's still a short-term answer at QB in dynasty on the cusp of retirement.
124QB30Matthew StaffordQBLARStafford seems to be healthy heading into 2023. If the OL can improve with Kupp back, Stafford has top-12 QB potential despite the risk.
125QB31Russell WilsonQBDEN
126WR48Kadarius ToneyWRKCToney's ability to stay healthy is very questionable at this point, but he still has elite ceiling in KC if he can.
127RB36Brian RobinsonRBWAS
128RB37Antonio GibsonRBWAS
129RB38Khalil HerbertRBCHI
130WR49Mike WilliamsWRLAC
131WR50Gabriel DavisWRBUF
132WR51Jakobi MeyersWRLV
133TE13David NjokuTECLE
134TE14Evan EngramTEJAC
135RB39Samaje PerineRBDENJavonte Williams is expected to be ready for Week 1, but Perine should still see some passing down work as the 1B in DEN.
136RB40David MontgomeryRBDETMontgomery can be a flex option with some some goal-line work like Williams saw last year with added upside if Gibbs were to miss time.
137QB32Hendon HookerQBDETGoff is likely to start for all of 2023, but depending on how the season goes, Hooker could step into an offense loaded with offensive talent.
138RB41Tyjae SpearsRBTENSpears's knee is a big red flag long-term, but he has short-term upside as the No. 2 in TEN and has shown burst this preseason.
139RB42Jerick McKinnonRBKC
140RB43Ezekiel ElliottRBNEElliott may no longer be in his prime, but he could see Damien Harris's goal-line and short-yardage role from 2021.
141TE15Luke MusgraveTEGBMusgrave can earn targets with his athleticism and route-running in this GB offense devoid of pass-catching playmakers outside of Watson.
142WR52Jayden ReedWRGBLike Musgrave, Reed will have an opportunity to earn targets in GB, but overall offensive efficiency with Love is yet to be seen.
143WR53Michael GallupWRDAL
144WR54Rashee RiceWRKCThe latest in a slew of Rd 2 WRs for KC, Rice is a fair athlete with YAC skills but will need to carve out a role on the best offense in the NFL.
145WR55Jonathan MingoWRCARCAR reached in Rd 2 for Mingo as one of the few WRs in this class with size. He can contribute as a rookie, but fantasy upside is iffy.
146QB33Jimmy GaroppoloQBLV
147RB44Jeff Wilson JrRBMIAEven once Achane is 100%, his role overlaps more with Mostert. Wilson could be the short-yardage back in MIA regardless.
148RB45Rashaad PennyRBPHIPenny could have a valuable role on early downs and in short yardage situations if he secures a spot on the 53-man roster.
149RB46Damien HarrisRBBUFIf he's 100% back from the knee injury, Harris could still see a valuable GL role in an efficient BUF offense.
150RB47Jamaal WilliamsRBNO
151RB48Kendre MillerRBNOMiller lacks speed, but he's one-cut runner with good vision and could have upside if NO parts ways with Kamara in 2024.
152TE16Cole KmetTECHI
153TE17Tyler HigbeeTELAR
154TE18Gerald EverettTELAC
155TE19Jake FergusonTEDALFerguson could pick up where Dalton Schultz left off as a premier red-zone target for Dak Prescott.
156TE20Hunter HenryTENEHenry seems to be the clear No. 1 TE in NE and could see positive TD regression in a Bill O'Brien-led offense in 2023.
157TE21Zach ErtzTEARIEven on a putrid ARI offense, Ertz could see a lot of target volume in catch-up game scripts given the state of ARI's defense (or lack thereof).
158TE22Greg DulcichTEDENReports of a significant role for Adam Trautman probably means that neither DEN TE will be a consistent fantasy producer.
159TE23Chigoziem OkonkwoTETEN
160QB34Ryan TannehillQBTEN
161WR56Josh DownsWRINDDowns has the explosiveness to create big plays, but he's unlikely to be a consistent fantasy producer alongside Pittman and Pierce.
162WR57Odell BeckhamWRBAL
163WR58DeVante ParkerWRNENE may not be a pass-heavy offense, but Parker should see plenty of snaps and targets and be a serviceable WR3 or flex option.
164WR59Nico CollinsWRHOU
165RB49Tyler AllgeierRBATL
166RB50Roschon JohnsonRBCHIJohnson seems to already be trusted in pass protection and could see his role grow as the season progresses.
167RB51Jerome FordRBCLE
168RB52Elijah MitchellRBSFMitchell reportedly looks explosive back from his adductor injury, but he's yet to manage to stay healthy for long stretches.
169RB53Gus EdwardsRBBAL
170RB54Kenneth GainwellRBPHIPHI reportedly like Gainwell in 2-min situations, and he has upside with both Swift and Penny having extensive injury histories.
171RB55Chuba HubbardRBCAR
172WR60Zay JonesWRJAC
173WR61DJ CharkWRCAR
174WR62Allen LazardWRNYJ
175WR63Chase ClaypoolWRCHIThere may not be enough passing volume in CHI to support Claypool, but his red-zone chemistry with Fields could give him some boom weeks.
176QB35Baker MayfieldQBTBMayfield heads into the season as the starter (for now) in TB. He's a warm body in superflex worth rostering but could lose the job anytime.
177RB56Leonard FournetteRBFADepending on where he eventually signs, Fournette could have a valuable goal-line role as a complementary back.
178WR64Isaiah HodginsWRNYG
179WR65Darnell MooneyWRCHI
180WR66Adam ThielenWRCAR
181WR67Michael ThomasWRNO
182WR68Jalin HyattWRNYGHyatt is the newest addition to NYG's crowded WR depth chart, but he could carve out a role given his 3rd round draft capital and speed.
183WR69Robert WoodsWRHOU
184WR70Tank DellWRHOUDell lacks the size to be more than a complementary piece at the NFL level, but he seems to have a connection with Stroud.
185WR71Tyler BoydWRCIN
186WR72JuJu Smith-SchusterWRNE
187RB57Raheem MostertRBMIA
188RB58Devin SingletaryRBHOU
189RB59Ty ChandlerRBMINChandler seems to have a grasp on the No. 2 role for now behind Mattison. With 4.38 speed, he has weekly upside.
190RB60Chris EvansRBCINIt sounds like Evans has claimed the No. 2 role that made Perine flex-worthy in 2022, so Evans is worth stashing.
191RB61Evan HullRBINDIt would likely be a messy RBBC if IND were to trade away Taylor, but Hull is the only RB on the roster hand-picked by the new regime.
192RB62Kyren WilliamsRBLARReports indicate that Williams is the No. 2 RB in a passing-down role, so he could have some usable weeks this season.
193WR73Alec PierceWRIND
194WR74Romeo DoubsWRGB
195WR75Michael WilsonWRARIWilson is apparently playing in 2WR sets alongside Brown, so he could be a volume play despite a poor prospect profile.
196RB63Joshua KelleyRBLACWith Ekeler now 28 years old coming off a big workload in 2022, one or both of the RBs behind him could quickly be relevant.
197RB64Isaiah SpillerRBLAC
198WR76Richie JamesWRKCThere have been positive reports on James and Ross in Toney's absence. It's good to take shots on WRs attached to Mahomes.
199WR77Justyn RossWRKC
200RB65Jordan MasonRBSFThere's been a steady drumbeat that Mason could be the next man up if both McCaffrey and Mitchell miss time, and Mitchell's always banged up.

  1. Bennett says

    Nice list. However saying “Kelce is in a tier of his own” and having Andrews ranked ahead of him is contradictory. Aside from that no gripes here.

  2. Ben says

    Breeze Hall at RB12? Cracked.

  3. helene says

    great work thank you

    1. Meng Song says

      Thanks! Stay tuned for the post-free agency update in a couple of months!

  4. Travis Henshaw says

    Where do you think guys like Lawrence, Harris, Etienne and Fields will rank in dynasty superflex?

    1. Meng Song says

      I currently have Lawrence at QB5 just ahead of Jackson. A bit lower on Fields, so just ahead of Mayfield and Rodgers.

      I’m still looking at RB film, but as of now I’d say Harris and Etienne are similar in value to the tier of 2020 rookie RBs like Dobbins and Gibson, though obviously landing spot will play a factor.

      These rankings will be updated to account for free agency movements and again after the NFL Draft to include the rookies.
