Comments
1 Jonathan Taylor IND 14 2 312 1640 16 35 300 1 296
Taylor ran away with the title last year and the Colts remain a run-first offense in 2022 with Matt Ryan leading the way. Bottom Line: Mr. Taylor is the new Mr. Consistent for fantasy football STUD RBs.
2 Derrick Henry TEN 6 1 348 1650 16 18 150 1 282
As long as he stays healthy, Henry will rebound to dominate most weeks for yards rushing and scores. Too bad he only catches about 20 passes or so most years. Henry has looked good in camp, so he gets a boost in our poll this week, as it is clear he is 100% back to health.
3 Austin Ekeler LAC 8 2 182 830 11 74 670 6 252
Ekeler is the healthy CMC for fantasy football right now. He can do it all, but his pass-catching abilities really elevate his value, especially in PPR leagues.
4 Christian McCaffrey CAR 13 1 225 1020 9 77 660 3 240
There is no doubting the talent, but CMC has played only a handful of games over the past two seasons due to injuries. That makes him a significant risk to take early in the first round of your fantasy draft. As such, if you pass on him, I would not blame you.
5 Joe Mixon CIN 10 1 298 1230 11 40 310 3 238
When he stays healthy for long stretches, Mixon is one of the most consistent fantasy producers in the game, making him one of the safest early round pick for fantasy. 2022 is no different.
6 Najee Harris PIT 9 0 312 1220 8 69 440 2 226
Harris will shoulder the load for the Steelers without Big Ben, but that means he will be a marked man. That said, on volume alone he will be a top 10 RB if he stays healthy.
7 Dalvin Cook MIN 7 2 262 1200 10 40 290 1 215
Cook remains a top 5 RB in talent, but several shoulder injuries make it more than likely that he misses at least a few games here and there most seasons, and 2022 will not be an exception. Draft Mattison if you take Cook, and you will be fine.
8 Nick Chubb CLE 9 1 249 1360 9 22 180 1 214
Chubb can produce big games, but does not catch many passes and shares time with Hunt. Still, he is a solid RB1 for non-PPR leagues.
9 James Conner ARZ 13 1 236 930 10 43 410 2 206
Conner really surprised last season, and with Edmonds gone, he should carry most of the load again. That said, we trim a few scores off his projections, since we feel backups Williams, Benjamin, or Ingram will steal a few here and there.
10 Alvin Kamara NO 14 0 222 960 8 49 420 3 204
With his preliminary hearing delayed into September, it appears there is a good chance Kamara will not face a suspension until 2023, so he climbs again in our rankings. By September, he could find himself clearly in our top 5-10 RBs.
