  • Start Dak Prescott: The Dallas Cowboys quarterback is expected to return and has a great matchup to take advantage of. The number of good quarterbacks on byes also moves him up.
  • Start rookie RBs: Three rookie running backs have become must-start players regardless of who is in and out with a bye week.
  • 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 7 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 three seasons.
