Fantasy WR ranking at the start of 2022

Our Fantasy WR rankings for the start of 2022 anticipate the best lifters, sleepers, and fallers at the deepest position in fantasy football. There are plenty of players playing in reshuffle leagues who are curious about the wide receiver’s fantastic outlook next year, but those in the Goalkeeper and Dynasty leagues are still particularly keen to move on. before.

Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill have held the top two spots in each of the past two seasons, but this year both are outside our top three as a veteran has emerged and two young spreaders look to make the leap into status. elite in good faith. Of course these rankings are for the overhaul and age isn’t everything, we need to be aware of guys who might be due to a late career drop.

Players like Adams and Mike Williams might have their rankings affected by what happens in free agency, but Adams can only fall so far and Williams is not very high in our rankings to begin with. It’s also worth noting that Calvin Ridley could see a change of scenery as well. There are also players like Chris Godwin and Michael Gallup heading into the free market and coming out of recent ACL injuries. Our pre-season standings way too early will bring more clarity to these guys.

Chase Claypool, Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and DJ Moore are just a few of the WRs who are sure to catch some assists from new QBs next year, and it looks like their fantastic outlook can only grow on that basis. If the rumors that Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson are heading to new teams next year are true, there could be a number of beneficiaries off. Obviously, DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett would lose value if Wilson left, so there is always a domino effect.

2021 FANTASY: All-Value Team | All bust team

Wide receivers are always hard to predict, and at least a third of our top 36 guys are going to disappoint. Someone will come out of nowhere and be at least a mid-level WR2, and at least one rookie will make some noise. It happens every season. However, we love Amon-Ra St. Brown, Darnell Mooney, Hunter Renfrow, Gabriel Davis and Elijah Moore for continuing their 2021 momentum next year as some of our best high-end “breakouts”.

The wide receiver is deep, so it’s hard to immediately include a rookie unless there’s a clear elite prospect (like Ja’Marr Chase last year), but Traylon Burks, Garrett Wilson, Jameson Williams and others could make our top 36 preseason standings if they land in the right situations.
