2022 NFL WR Best Ball Rankings

5 min read
NFL Week 4 FLEX Rankings

After another Fantastic year in 2021. Cooper

Kupp leads our 2022 NFL WR Best Ball Rankings

for the upcoming season. He’s looking to build

on his 2021 campaign which saw him play 17

games, 145 receptions, 1,947 yards and 16 TDs.

He is also coming off a 3rd place finish in the

MVP voting.


What are Best-Ball Draft-Only Leagues?

Best ball is a fantasy football format where league managers draft their team but there is no in-season management—no waiver wire, no trades, no setting lineups. Instead, your highest-scoring players are optimized to form your starting lineup. Leagues are decided by cumulative season points rather than head-to-head matchups. Roster size and payout structures vary by platform and while there are traditional live drafts available, slow drafts (1- 2- 4- 6- and 8-hour timers) are also popular for best-ball leagues.


General Strategy to Get Started

A specific strategy for each site varies but, in general, you should go into a draft with the aim to draft the following number of players at each position in hopes of maintaining enough active players through all 17 weeks:

  • 2–3 QB
  • 4–6 RB
  • 6–9 WR
  • 2–3 TE
  • 2–3 Defenses
  • 2–3 Kickers



***Wide receiver drafting strategy in best ball fantasy leagues

Wide Receiver is the one position I believe you can wait on drafting as there are so many great options and injuries will open up the depth charts even more. There are so many high-caliber Wideouts in the league this year it’s crazy. NFL teams usually have one RB that is expected to put up relevant fantasy numbers in any given week. While, almost any team in the NFL could have three wideouts that might go off. Take Dallas, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati, for example. Each of those teams has three receivers with weekly top-36 upside.

When it comes to receivers in best ball, more is better. I try to walk away with seven to nine receivers on my roster in most drafts.

I absolutely LOVE to draft WR-heavy in the first couple of rounds. I go for the Big Names like if I can get Cooper Kupp this year, you bet I will. Then, I will look for those high upside players in the middle rounds. You can find those guys and all of their stats in our Weekly Matchup Tool.

We will be posting for week 1 in the coming weeks and will have all relevant stats from the previous season. Guys that I like so far this year, even before training camps open fully are as follows.  Michael Pittman Jr., Darnell Mooney, Allen Robinson Courtland Sutton, and Christian Kirk all look to make impacts this year again and you might get them later on with our 2022 NFL WR Best Ball Rankings

REMEMBER: These are lineups we use but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.
