Fantasy football rankings 2022: Top 100 players in your draft

·5 min read

Fantasy football rankings 2022: Top 100 overall players originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Should you take a running back or a wide receiver in the first round of your fantasy football draft? Is it worth taking a tight end within the first three rounds? How soon is too soon to pick a quarterback?

These are all questions you'll need to answer before you go on the clock, and they're important: It's great to have Josh Allen on your team, but if you use a first-round pick on the talented Buffalo Bills quarterback, you'll likely miss out on a stud RB1 or WR1.

That's where the Top 100 rankings come in. Our Top 100 overall rankings list the best players in fantasy regardless of position to give you a sense of who might be available in the early rounds -- and reiterate why you shouldn't draft a defense until at least the 11th or 12th round.
