Not sure if you should draft CeeDee Lamb over Deebo Samuel in a PPR league? Well, go thing for you, I’ve got you covered with my top 60 wide receiver PPR rankings for 2022. When it comes to PPR, the pool of wide receivers goes deep.
2022 Wide Receiver Pool
So, I wouldn’t worry about not drafting a top-tier receiver in the first or second round. However, you can’t go wrong with drafting Cooper Kupp or Justin Jefferson in the first round. But, the question is, do you draft Kupp or Jefferson?
Yes, Kupp had a historic year last year. Yes, I believe Kupp will still have an incredible year, but I think this is the year Jefferson finishes as WR1.
Kupp does have some competition with Allen Robinson II joining the team. Robinson is young and a PPR machine from his years in Chicago, well not last year, don’t remind me. Do, I think he will take away all the targets? No, Kupp will still finish in the top three, but I believe Jefferson is in a better situation.
Jefferson will have a new head coach this year. That coach is Kevin O’Connell, the Rams former offensive coordinator. I believe what O’Connell did with Kupp is what he will do with Jefferson. I know Jefferson still has to compete with Adam Thielen. But, Thielen is aging and will mostly become just a red zone threat. I see Jefferson having his career breakout year this season. The coach and the lack of depth he has to compete with are all there for him to go off this year.
Now, if you don’t want to take a wide receiver in the first round, that is fine. You can grab Michael Pittman Jr. in the third round. I have him at nine in my PPR rankings this year. Pittman has all the upside this year, and he showed it off last season.
He has an upgrade at the quarterback position with Matt Ryan. The Colts’ number two receiver is Parris Campbell. I know defenses are going to have Jonathan Taylor as their top threat, which will leave Pittman open in the passing game.
Pittman has no competition and I have him catching over 90 balls and scoring double-digit touchdowns. Don’t sleep on Pittman, he is a clear WR1 on a fantasy team.
Some other upside wide receivers I have on this list are Amon-Ra St. Brown at 26, Mike Williams at 15, and Gabriel Davis at 33.
We’ll start with St. Brown. He blew up at the end of last season and is the clear number one receiver in Detroit. The only reason I don’t have him higher is the arrival of DJ Chark. Chark will steal some red zone touchdowns from St. Brown. But, other than that, I expect St. Brown is inside the top 20 in fantasy for wide receivers.
Williams would have blown out Keenan Allen in fantasy points if he didn’t get banged up last season. If healthy, Williams is the clear number one fantasy wide receiver in the offense. Allen is aging and will have some regression this year. William is a great grab in the middle of the second to the early third round.
Lastly, we have Davis. We all saw him go absolutely nuts in that playoff game where he had four touchdowns. Do I think that was a fluke game? No.
Davis has just never had his shot, and now he is the clear WR2 with Emmanuel Sanders gone. In weeks 14 and 15 when Sanders missed time, Davis had three touchdowns and 128 yards. When given the opportunity, Davis is a top WR2. And it does help that Josh Allen is his quarterback.
Now, be sure to add this rankings list to your cheat sheet and steal your league’s draft this season.
