Fantasy Football 2022 cheat sheet: standings, position levels, sleeps, hacks, busts and more

usatsi-josh-allen-bills.jpg

Look, I don’t need a long, curvy introduction here explaining all my thoughts on the state of Fantasy Football in 2022. If you’ve subscribed to the Fantasy Football Today newsletter, you’ve received about 100,000 words reviewing this NFL season from me over the past month or so. If you are not subscribed to our newsletter, what are you waiting for? We’ve got a recording below to keep you up to date with everything you need to know throughout the season, delivered straight to your inbox.

This version of our Sunday newsletter is just as useful – we’ve got a whole bunch of links here pointing to the content you need to draft.

This includes sleepovers, hacks, and distractions from the entire FFT team, our site-specific previews and arrangements, a pick series, and even a host of Dynasty content for those interested in the future. Starting tomorrow, the newsletter will shift its focus a little more to week one, with the first round of rankings, assignment targets, and come Wednesday, our first week. Start “Em & Sit” Em calls. All this leads to the start of the NFL season Thursday between the Rams and the Bills.

But that’s all for the future. The very near future, but you still have a draft tonight. Let’s get over that first. My top 200 ranking here is below everything you need from the FFT team to craft your best team. Let’s go.
