ESPN Fantasy Football Rankings 2022

These are our 2022 ESPN Fantasy Football rankings for those that play in an ESPN league using their default scoring system. 

ESPN fantasy football scoring mostly resembles PPR scoring format, with:

  • One point per reception

  • One point for every 25 passing yards;

  • Four points for every passing TD;

  • One point for every 10 rushing or receiving yards;

  • Six points for every rushing or receiving TD

The kicker scoring and defense scoring are unique from some other formats. Kickers can lose a point for misses, and get yardage bonuses for kicks over 40 yards. On defense, the scoring includes the possibility of both positive and negative points for yards allowed and points allowed. The yards allowed component (where you can start losing points at 350 or more yards allowed) makes drafting defenses that limit yards relatively more valuable than other scoring formats.

How We Determined Value for the ESPN Fantasy Football Rankings

We rank the players by “value.” Value is calculated by looking at the baseline scores for players at the position (the specific baseline is selected based on the typical number of players on all rosters for each position). It is also adjusted based on both scarcity and predictability of the position.

For example, value is also adjusted based on how many starters are typically required at the position. Why do we do this? If you are in a league that starts 3 WR (or 2 WR and a Flex), but 1 QB, then it’s more likely that the WR you drafted early is going to be in your starting fantasy roster than the QB will be. You might not have a big dropoff between your top QB and the other QB on your roster. It’s more likely that the difference between your top WR and 4th WR will be more. 

Finally, value also includes consideration of how consistent the position is in fantasy football. Positions that are less consistent, like kicker and defense, have their value reduced in our 2022 ESPN Fantasy Football Rankings.
