Matthew Berry’s love, hate and fantasy football rankings way too early in 2022
The penultimate week of the season means several things. Fantasy football championship week for one. This usually means we’re on the other side of Christmas as the end of the calendar year approaches (not to mention my birthday, December 29!) Way too early in the 2022 Fantasy Football rankings (that’s- i.e. a cheap ploy to get you to click on the column even though you’ve been knocked out).
Understand that this is done before the end of the season, not to mention the free agencies where you can expect to see, among other things, many famous quarterbacks change teams. The coaches will be fired and hired and will bring with them different offensive philosophies. Players will lose and gain fantastic value throughout the offseason depending on what their team is doing (or not doing) as coach, QB, free agency, draft and a number of unpredictable things. Remember when Andrew Luck retired in mid-August? Even over the next two weeks and into the playoffs, things can change. ACL tears can happen at any time, including in the playoffs.
So what I’ve done here is classify as if nothing will change by the start of the 2022 NFL season. I classified myself as if Aaron Rodgers was the Green Bay Packers quarterback and Davante Adams is still his No.1 receiver. Otherwise, there is too much uncertainty. In fact, the only thing that is certain is that these rankings will change a million times before now and the end of August 2022.
My rankings will be posted again after the season and will be constantly updated as news warrants, so keep checking in, especially the day after big news clippings. Enough warnings for you?
OK fine. So let’s go. These rankings were made with ESPN standard leagues in mind. That is to say leagues with 10 teams with PPR score and start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 Flex.
