Early 2022 Fantasy Football Best Ball Rankings: Pre-NFL Draft

Ja'Marr Chase - Fantasy Football Rankings NFL Injury News, DFS Picks

Welcome RotoBallers, there is no off-season here! Below you'll see our team's early 2022 fantasy football best ball rankings for the top 340 fantasy football players. Use these best ball rankings to draft winning best ball teams.

For anyone who isn't very familiar with fantasy football best ball leagues, they are essentially draft-only leagues with no moves during the season. Once a best ball draft is completed, nothing else happens -- no setting weekly lineups, no trading, no waiver wire moves. Every week of the season, the best combo of fantasy players on your team is automatically calculated and used to determine the highest possible scoring outcome. Best ball drafts always start earlier than regular drafts, and they are already in high gear!

Two of our RotoBaller's lead fantasy football analysts - Pierre Camus and Phil Clark - have put together their consensus staff rankings, which will be updated regularly through the start of the 2022 fantasy football season.

Make sure to also follow our 24x7 news feed of fantasy football news and injuries. And more importantly, download our free fantasy sports mobile app to receive real-time alerts and push notifications on the latest NFL news. The app has just been updated, and has all of our articles too.

Featured Promo: The Never-Too-Early FFPC Best Ball Tournament is here! It's $125 to enter with a $25,000 grand prize and $133,000 total prize pool! These Best Ball drafts will run through the NFL Draft and conclude on April 28th, 2022.
