Fantasy Football 2022: QB draft rankings

·2-min read

Remember the amazing divisional game between the Bills and Chiefs last January? Imagine the fantasy points if it had been a regular-season game!

That game turned out to be an instant classic, with Patrick Mahomes throwing for 378 yards and three touchdowns (and one rushing TD) and Josh Allen going for 329 and four passing scores. Allen was on the losing end, but fantasy managers who drafted him in 2021 were very familiar with that kind of stat line.

Allen's 42 total touchdowns in 2021 are just one of the many reasons he earns the No. 1 overall positional ranking for 2022. It's hard to go wrong drafting Allen this season, but you can expect to pay up a hefty draft price for his services.

Luckily, there's a lot of talent behind Allen at the fantasy QB position — a range of dual-threat talent, too.

Which way will you go at fantasy quarterback?

Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Justin Herbert, Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurts will all be available after Allen, and all can do damage with both their arms and their legs.

Or maybe you'd prefer to go a more traditional route, looking for passing-touchdown upside? Well, don't worry, there's a ton of talent there, too, with the likes of Joe Burrow, Dak Prescott, Matthew Stafford, the returning Tom Brady and new Bronco Russell Wilson all available after Allen.

Or maybe you're willing to wait late on the position and put your confidence in the upside and evolution of younger guys like Trevor Lawrence, Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Fields?

Fantasy QB is a loaded position, with options aplenty, depending on your draft strategy.
