2022 PPR Fantasy Football Rankings - Top 150 | RotoWire

This article is part of our Fantasy Football Draft Strategy series.

With the 2022 fantasy football season just around the corner, it's time to start preparing for your drafts. There are many ways to get ready for your league, but it all comes down to rankings.

Fantasy football rankings will change during OTAs and training camp, but we will keep you updated with the top 150 in PPR throughout the summer. 

Moving Up: 

Deebo Samuel, WR, SF – Deebo just got paid, the "hold-in" is over!

Brandon Aiyuk, WR, SF – I was probably too low on Aiyuk to begin with, and then the positive news out of camp only serves to help move him up.

Cole Kmet, TE, CHI – The more often that I wait on a tight end, the more I want to draft Kmet, but have been aced-out a few times. It follows that I need to move him up.

KJ Hamler, WR, DEN – Hamler is coming back from a major injury from last season, but he moves up a peg with Tim Patrick out.

No Change:

Browns skill position players – The Deshaun Watson news has been a roller-coaster, and it's a good thing my rankings changes occur now and not on Monday. Amari Cooper and his teammates have been ranked as if Watson was already going to have a longer suspension than six games.

Moving Down: 

Cooper Kupp, WR, LAR – With the news that the Rams are managing Matthew Stafford in training camp due to an arm issue, I'm slightly downgrading Kupp from 2 to 5 overall.

Marquise Brown, WR, ARI – Brown is off the NFI list, which is good, but he's being introduced slowly into practice. He also just got arrested for "criminal speeding" on Wednesday and actually spent part of the day in jail. I don't think that the latter will be a big deal, but after Henry Ruggs last year, I want to know more details before completely dismissing it.

Matthew Stafford, QB, LAR – The Rams are "de-loading" Stafford right now to manage his arm, which had an anti-inflammatory injection in the spring. He didn't throw in OTA's, did start throwing at the start of training camp and felt a twinge.

Mike Gesicki, TE, MIA – The Dolphins are asking Gesicki to block more often, and he went through an entire practice this week without getting a target.

Irv Smith, TE, MIN – Smith injured his thumb on Monday and had surgery on Tuesday. He's supposed to be ready for Week 1, but he moves out of the top 150 for me.

Christian Watson, WR, GB – The Packers revealed last week that Watson suffered a knee injury in OTA's and needed offseason surgery, which is why he's on the active/PUP list and is "day-to-day." He's missing critical time getting acquainted with Aaron Rodgers and could be passed by Romeo Doubs, among others.

Tim Patrick, WR, DEN – Alas, Patrick is out for the season with a torn ACL.

Without further ado, here is a look at my top 150 PPR rankings for the 2022 fantasy football season.
