Mike Clay's dynasty and rookie fantasy football rankings

play
Rookie WRs fantasy managers should keep an eye on for dynasty (2:19)

Mike Clay, Field Yates, and Matthew Berry discuss fantasy rookie WRs for dynasty leagues, including Jameson Williams. (2:19)

Here is an updated set of rankings for those of you in keeper and dynasty leagues: An overall top 240, followed by a rookies-only top 65. Although a PPR scoring system is assumed, keep in mind that a switch to non-PPR would yield only minor changes, because we're looking at each player's long-term contributions.

Player ages (years-months) listed are as of the 2022 regular-season opener.
