  • Garrett Wilson reaches new heights: Wilson has gained 75 or more yards in five of his last six games and should be able to take advantage of the Detroit Lions‘ defense.
  • Reinforcements incoming at tight end: Both Dallas Goedert and Darren Waller could be returning from injured reserve this week, making it a little easier to find a starting fantasy tight end.
  • Nathan Jahnke’s fantasy rankings have been the most accurate in season rankings over the last four seasons combined, per FantasyPros‘ rankings accuracy competition.

These are my fantasy football rankings for Week 15 of the 2022 NFL season for PPR leagues, including some notes about players to help you make your weekly decisions. Rankings in other formats can be found here.

According to FantasyPros, my rankings were fifth-most accurate in 2021, second-most in 2020 and third-most in 2019. I was the only analyst to rank top-five all three seasons, making these the most consistently-accurate rankings of the last four seasons.
