2022 Fantasy Football Special

Updated: Aug 29, 2022

Don't do your fantasy football draft without this information! If you have already done your fantasy draft, either your league commissioner doesn't take the fantasy season seriously or they don't know what they're doing! Serious fantasy football players should never have their draft before the last preseason game is over. You have no idea which players will remain healthy and which won't until the last game is over. Tom Brady played this past weekend for goodness sakes! Luckily, he didn't get hurt.

Here are my feelings about fantasy football. I used to play it and have won leagues before, but I found that I had to pull for my players who often belonged to teams that I hated which caused me a lot of grief. So, I haven't played in several years, but I know the players very well, so a lot of people ask me fantasy football questions, and I'm happy to help them out.

Below, you will find my ranking by position followed by an overall ranking. So, print this out, get a pen to check off players as they are drafted, and beat those people who set their draft on automatic pilot.

The rankings are for PPR (Point Per Reception) Leagues but wouldn't change too much for Standard Scoring Leagues since they are scored nearly the same.

Good luck!
