Fantasy football 2022 rankings, draft prep: QB, WR, RB, TE picks, cheat sheets, ADP, tiers from computer model

When it comes to 2022 Fantasy football rankings, the best 2022 Fantasy football QB, RB and WR picks to target are middle-round selections who have the potential to be top-10 players. While he probably won’t turn into 2022’s version of Cooper Kupp, Rashod Bateman offers intriguing upside at his current 2022 Fantasy football ADP. With Baltimore having sent Marquise Brown to Arizona and not replaced him with an established top-end receiver, the second year pro has a chance to shine in Baltimore’s offense. Last year, he caught 46 passes for over 500 yards and one touchdown. Assuming his receptions nearly double, the touchdowns and yardage should climb, therefore making him a worthy selection among the top 60 2022 Fantasy football picks. Managers compiling their 2022 Fantasy football strategy should adjust their 2022 Fantasy football rankings on Bateman accordingly. If you’re looking for 2022 Fantasy football advice, be sure to check out the 2022 Fantasy football cheat sheets from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Last year, the model accurately predicted that Colts running back Taylor was being drastically undervalued. Taylor was being drafted behind running backs like Aaron Jones, Ezekiel Elliott and Ekeler but the SportsLine projection model predicted that he’d outproduce all of those backs and be a fixture in your Fantasy football lineups. The result: Taylor led the NFL with 1,811 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns to finish as the overall RB1 in 2021.That’s just one example of a league-winning pick that SportsLine’s model has been high on.

It’s been high on Fantasy football sleepers like A.J. Brown in 2020, Henry in 2019, McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara in 2018, and Davante Adams in 2017. Anybody who banked on players like those likely made a run at their league title.

The model is powered by the same people who generated projections for all three major Fantasy sites, and it beat human experts last season when there was a big difference in ranking. The projections update multiple times daily, so you’re always getting the best Fantasy football advice and the latest Fantasy football tiers.

Now, SportsLine has simulated the entire NFL season 10,000 times and released its latest Fantasy football cheat sheets 2022 and draft advice, along with its top Fantasy QB, WR, RB picks. Head to SportsLine now to see them

Top 2022 Fantasy football QB rankings

Here’s a look at SportsLine’s top three 2022 Fantasy football QB picks: 

1. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills: The Bills’ quarterback has clearly been the top Fantasy football QB the last two seasons, throwing for more than 4,400 yards each season, combining for 73 touchdown passes and rushing for 14 more. He’s the 2022 oddsmakers’ preseason choice for NFL Regular Season MVP for good reason. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that Allen could pass and rush for a combined 50 scores this season.

2. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs: Though he’s only played four full seasons as a starter, if Mahomes retired today, he’d be a strong bet for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. That’s how incredible his performance has been since 2018. The Chiefs have made at least the AFC Championship Game in all of Mahomes’ four seasons as a starter, though in a strengthened AFC, that looks like a taller task in 2022. With his most dynamic weapon, Tyreek Hill, now in Miami, the Chiefs’ QB may suffer a dip in passing touchdowns from his 37.5 average over the past two seasons. Either way, a 4,500 yard, 30-plus touchdown season is a virtual lock for one of the game’s greats.

3. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens: Fantasy managers look back to Jackson’s 2019 MVP season of 36 touchdown passes, 1,206 yards rushing, and seven rushing scores and hope for a repeat while the Ravens quarterback seeks a mammoth long term contract extension. Though Baltimore’s receiving corps are thin outside of tight end Mark Andrews, Jackson’s 2022 Fantasy football projections are buoyed by his rushing stats. Last year in only 12 games, Jackson nearly rushed for 800 yards. If healthy, another 1,000-yard season on the ground seems like a virtual certainty, keeping him among the elite quarterbacks in Fantasy drafts this season. See more top QBs here.

Top 2022 Fantasy football RB rankings

Here’s a look at SportsLine’s top three 2022 Fantasy football RB picks: 

1. Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts: The former collegiate standout at the University of Wisconsin has excelled for Indianapolis in his two NFL seasons. He’s coming off of an 1,800-yard, 18-touchdown season and despite not being a primary receiving threat out of the backfield, is the safest choice in drafts. Taylor shouldn’t last past the third pick in any league format and is a worthy choice with the No. 1 pick.

2. Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers: With L.A.’s offense being among the league’s most dynamic, Ekeler has a chance to approach his 20 touchdowns in 2021. If there is one concern about the diminutive running back, it’s that he’s coming off a 276-touch workload, significantly higher than any of his previous four seasons. If Ekeler can duplicate his 2019 numbers, 1,500 combined yards, double-digit touchdowns, and 80 receptions, he’s a strong choice in the top five picks of drafts.

3. Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans: Despite offering no real receiving threat out of the backfield, Henry is a fantasy owners’ dream when it comes to the potential of explosive weeks. Over his past three regular seasons, including an injury-shortened 2021 campaign, Henry has posted 15 games with multiple touchdowns and 21 games with more than 100 yards rushing. The two-time NFL rushing leader looks to bounce back in 2022. Anything short of 1,700 yards would be a disappointment for the league’s most physical and feared runner. See more top RBs here.

Top 2022 Fantasy football WR rankings

Here’s a look at SportsLine’s top three 2022 Fantasy football WR picks: 

1. Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams: He is coming off a historic season, finishing as the No. 1 receiver in points per game, receiving yards and target share with over 200 total targets. Kupp led the NFL with 16 touchdowns, which is something that has only happened six times since 2007. While some slight regression is possible this season, Kupp still deserves to be the first wide receiver off the board.

2. Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings: The Vikings have a new coaching staff, but most of their key offensive weapons are back this year. Jefferson was held out in the preseason, which should come as no surprise considering his accolades. He has the most receiving yards in NFL history in a player’s first two seasons and is the second-highest graded receiver ever during that stretch, according to Pro Football Focus.

3. Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals: Chase was able to break Jefferson’s record for most receiving yards in a rookie season, so he will now have his sights set on breaking Jefferson’s record for most receiving yards through two years. Chase averaged 18.0 yards per reception, which ranked second-best in the NFL last year. He was targeted at an even higher rate during the playoffs, signaling that the best is yet to come for the young wideout. See more top WRs here.
