2022 Fantasy Football Rookie Rankings: Dynasty

  1. Breece Hall, RB, Jets
    Breece Hall is the No. 1 fantasy rookie this year. He’ll be the Jets’ primary back, and he’ll play on all three downs because of his ability to catch passes.

  2. Jameson Williams, WR, Lions
    Jameson Williams could struggle in his rookie year because he’s coming off a torn ACL. He’s not ideal in re-draft formats, but I love him more in dynasty.

  3. Drake London, WR, Falcons
    Teams view Drake London as the next Mike Evans. Marcus Mariota isn’t the most ideal quarterback for London to have, but it’s not like he’s terrible. London is also the undisputed No. 1 receiver on the Atlanta roster.

  4. Garrett Wilson, WR, Jets
    I’d like Garrett Wilson a lot more if he wasn’t in a crowded receiving corps. Wilson, however, profiles as an Odell Beckham Jr. type, so the big upside exists.

  5. Kenneth Walker, RB, Seahawks
    Kenneth Walker is arguably the best runner among the 2022 draft class, though Breece Hall definitely beats him in the receiving department. Unfortunately for Walker, he’ll be playing in a very crowded Seattle backfield.

  6. Treylon Burks, WR, Titans
    Treylon Burks will take A.J. Brown’s spot in Tennessee’s offense. I love Burks as a player, but the Titans have a run-heavy offense, so it’s tough to envision a rookie receiver being a big producer.

  7. Chris Olave, WR, Saints
    Chris Olave is a speedy receiver with personal upside, but he’ll be playing in a conservative, run-heavy offense. He’s not very appealing at the moment.

  8. Christian Watson, WR, Packers
    Christian Watson has superb athleticism and high upside, and he’ll be playing with Aaron Rodgers. Despite being drafted in the second round, he’s one of the top fantasy rookies in 2022.

  9. Skyy Moore, WR, Chiefs
    Skyy Moore automatically has huge appeal because he’ll be playing with Patrick Mahomes. Given the Chiefs’ weakness at receiver, Moore could have a big rookie year.

  10. Jahan Dotson, WR, Redskins
    Jahan Dotson will undoubtedly catch some deep YOLO throws from Carson Wentz. He’s in a decent situation, but his small stature gives him less upside than the other receivers in the first round.

  11. Alec Pierce, WR, Colts
    Alec Pierce should be able to contribute right away with Matt Ryan. Unfortunately for Pierce, he’s third on the depth chart at the moment.

  12. James Cook, RB, Bills
    James Cook will be a part-time player in Buffalo’s backfield. He’ll be used as a receiver out of the backfield, so he’s more appealing in PPR leagues.

  13. George Pickens, WR, Steelers
    George Pickens has great talent, but also possesses character concerns. He’ll be playing in a crowded receiving corps and with a bad quarterback.

  14. John Metchie, WR, Texans
    John Metchie probably has a bright future in the NFL, but his 2022 outlook is bearish because of a torn ACL.

  15. Dameon Pierce, RB, Texans
    The Texans don’t have talent at running back, so Dameon Pierce could win the starting job at some point in 2022. Houston’s offensive line is solid, so Pierce has nice fantasy upside.

  16. Brian Robinson, RB, Redskins
    Brian Robinson will play behind Antonio Gibson in Washington, but Ron Rivera referred to this duo as the next DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. Robinson will have his opportunities, but he’ll need Gibson to get hurt to reach full potential.

  17. Jalen Tolbert, WR, Cowboys
    Jalen Tolbert will play in an explosive Dallas offense, so he has appeal right away, especially if Michael Gallup can’t return right away from injury.

  18. Zamir White, RB, Raiders
    This could be Josh Jacobs’ final year with the Raiders, so Zamir White may take over as the starter in 2023. For now, White will need a Jacobs injury to be relevant.

  19. Isaiah Spiller, RB, Chargers
    Isaiah Spiller could emerge as Austin Ekeler’s direct backup, which would mean that he would be very appealing in the event of an Ekeler injury.

  20. Velus Jones, WR, Bears
    Velus Jones has great deep speed and will have an opportunity to fight for a starting job right away, given the Bears’ lack of talent at receiver.

  21. Wan’Dale Robinson, WR, Giants
    Wan’Dale Robinson will have a much more defined role if Kadarius Toney is traded. In the meantime, it’s unclear what the Giants will do with him.

  22. Rachaad White, RB, Buccaneers
    Rachaad White, who catches passes well out of the backfield, could be in for a strong rookie year if one of Leonard Fournette or Giovani Bernard gets hurt.

  23. Romeo Doubs, WR, Packers
    Green Bay’s receiving corps is barren, so Romeo Doubs could produce as a rookie despite being a fourth-round pick.

  24. Danny Gray, WR, 49ers
    Danny Gray will be an intriguing fantasy option as a rookie if the 49ers trade Deebo Samuel. Otherwise, he’ll have trouble seeing the field.

  25. David Bell, WR, Browns
    David Bell has a chance to be Cleveland’s third receiver in his rookie year. This is good news for him because of Deshaun Watson’s presence, but Bell may have trouble separating from NFL cornerbacks.

  26. Tyler Allgeier, RB, Falcons
    There’s an outside possibility that Tyler Allgeier becomes Atlanta’s starting running back at some point in 2022. He’s worth a shot in the late rounds.

  27. Tyquan Thornton, WR, Patriots
    Tyquan Thornton is probably the third receiver on a run-heavy New England offense. He’s not appealing at all.

  28. Trey McBride, TE, Cardinals
    Trey McBride will have to fight for snaps with Zach Ertz and Maxx Williams. I have no interest unless injuries occur.

  29. Greg Dulcich, TE, Broncos
    Greg Dulcich will take Noah Fant’s spot on Denver’s roster. I don’t like rookie tight ends, but Dulcich has some appeal because he’ll be playing with Russell Wilson.

  30. Jelani Woods, TE, Colts
    Jelani Woods is a highly athletic tight end who will have a chance to contribute as a rookie because of Jack Doyle’s retirement.

  31. Malik Willis, QB, Titans
    Malik Willis may not play for a while, but he has long-term fantasy potential because of his big arm and mobility.

  32. Kenny Pickett, QB, Steelers
    Kenny Pickett isn’t any sort of fantasy option in Pittsburgh’s run-heavy offense.

  33. Tyrion Davis-Price, RB, 49ers
  34. Cade Otton, TE, Buccaneers
  35. Jake Ferguson, TE, Cowboys
  36. Khalil Shakir, WR, Bills
  37. Michael Woods, WR, Browns
  38. Pierre Strong, RB, Patriots
  39. Kyren Williams, RB, Rams
  40. Hassan Haskins, RB, Titans
  41. Tyler Badie, RB, Ravens
  42. Keontay Ingram, RB, Cardinals
  43. Samori Toure, WR, Packers
  44. Chig Okonkwo, TE, Titans
  45. Daniel Bellinger, TE, Giants
  46. Cole Turner, TE, Redskins
  47. Isaiah Likely, TE, Ravens
  48. Charlie Kolar, TE, Ravens
  49. Erik Ezukanma, WR, Dolphins
  50. Kyle Phillips, WR, Titans
  51. Snoop Conner, RB, Jaguars
  52. Jerome Ford, RB, Browns
  53. Ty Chandler, RB, Vikings
  54. Trestan Enber, RB, Bears
  55. Kevin Harris, RB, Patriots
  56. Isaih Pacheco, RB, Chiefs
  57. Brittain Brown, RB, Raiders
  58. Montrell Washington, WR, Broncos
  59. Jalen Nailor, WR, Vikings
  60. Bo Melton, WR, Seahawks
  61. Dareke Young, WR, Seahawks
  62. Calvin Austin, WR, Steelers
  63. Jeremy Ruckert, TE, Jets
  64. Desmond Ridder, QB, Falcons
  65. Teagan Quitoriano, TE, Texans
  66. James Michell, TE, Lions
  67. Andrew Ogletree, TE, Colts
  68. Grant Calcaterra, TE, Eagles
  69. John Fitzpatrick, TE, Falcons
  70. Sam Howell, QB, Redskins
  71. Skylar Thompson, QB, Dolphins
  72. Ko Kieft, TE, Buccaneers
  73. Nick Muse, TE, Vikings
  74. Chris Oladokun, QB, Steelers
  75. Bailey Zappe, QB, Patriots
  76. Brock Purdy, QB, 49ers
