The 2022 NFL Draft class offered a plethora of talent that will help replenish dynasty fantasy football rosters. In dynasty rookie drafts, we ideally draft the best player available rather than targeting needs. Now is a great time to plug any roster holes through trades — especially as values have shifted a bit over the summer and we inch closer to training camp.

Breece Hall leads the way due to a combination of talent and positional scarcity. He was the clear top option coming into the draft, as both his college production and athleticism pointed to a future three-down back. He was the first running back selected in the draft, and he landed in a favorable spot in New York. He should be the Jets' lead back in Week 1. New York was a top-eight team in run play percentage with a lead, so if the Jets' young players play well, Hall will get plenty of opportunities. This adds up to him not only being the best option long-term but also the consensus top option for the 2022 season.
