NFL 2023 fantasy football rankings


  • Wide receivers dominate the first round: The consistency of the elite wide receivers mixed with an ever-changing running back landscape leads to seven wide receivers in the top 10, led by Justin Jefferson.
  • Breece Hall is a fantasy first-round pick: Hall averaged 21.2 PPR points per game in his last three healthy games. He would have been RB3 if he maintained that rate for a full season.
  • Free agency will shake up the running back position: Tony Pollard, Josh Jacobs and Saquon Barkley all have first-round potential, but their landing spot will play a huge role in determining their future fantasy value.

These way-too-early 2023 fantasy football rankings are an initial look at how players could be ranked in August. Player movement in free agency will have a big factor on the rankings, particularly at running back. While no rookies were included in these rankings, the knowledge that this is a strong rookie class at running back pushed some running backs down that might have a smaller role next season.
