My off-season PPR dynasty rankings gaze into the future with a two-year emphasis. As the season begins, a more narrow approach to the rankings will occur as we try to win a championship. Positional dynamics play an important factor. We know that running backs tend to have shorter careers while top flight quarterbacks can stick in the league for 10-plus seasons.

Other considerations include age, contract situation, durability, consistency, supporting cast and more.

  Christian McCaffrey, SF: Ideal spot for CMac's fantasy value.

Bijan Robinson, ATL: Unique talent in run-heavy offense.

  Jonathan Taylor, IND: Clear three-down RB. No competition to speak of.

  Travis Etienne, JAC: Thrust into workhorse role but lacked volume in passing game.

  Jahmyr Gibbs, DET: Lions brass drooling all over themselves with this early draft pick.

  Kenneth Walker, SEA: Bellcow as long as he remains healthy.

  Austin Ekeler, LAC: Overall RB1 and RB2 the last two seasons.

  Saquon Barkley, NYG: Franchised.

  Breece Hall, NYJ: ACL injury: 10/23/22

  Nick Chubb, CLE: Stud. Over 5 yards per carry every season.

  Josh Jacobs, LV: Smashed his 2022 ADP in workhorse role.

Tony Pollard, DAL: Efficient on his 232 touches last season.

  Dameon Pierce, HOU: Bright future. Offense needs improved QB play.

D'Andre Swift, PHI: Committee approach in PHI is going to limit Swift's ceiling.

  Javonte Williams, DEN: No lock to be a RB2 in 2023. ACL injury: 10/2/22

  Derrick Henry, TEN: Tacked on 349 carries in 2022.

  Cam Akers, LAR: Picked up steam down the stretch after shaky start.

  Rhamondre Stevenson, NE: Should be lead back in 2023.

  Najee Harris, PIT: Took a slight step back in 2022 as offense sputtered.

  James Cook, BUF: More volume expected in 2023 but Bills offense remains pass-heavy.

Devon Achane, MIA: Could be an immediate factor.

  Joe Mixon, CIN: Status with CIN is murky. Rush efficiency was lacking in 2022.

  J.K. Dobbins, BAL: No additional RB competition added this off-season.

  Dalvin Cook, MIN: Sticking in MIN? Feels like more of an RB2 moving forward.

  Aaron Jones, GB: Battled various injuries in 2022. Still has a strong floor.

  Miles Sanders, CAR: A committee leader but volume should be there.

Isiah Pacheco, KC: Should have a role moving forward but likely in timeshare.

  Rachaad White, TB: Timeshare may continue in Tampa even without Lenny.

  Alvin Kamara, NO: Off-field issues linger. Seemed to disappear from passing game at times.

  James Conner, ARI: Volume hog when healthy in 2022. New HC in 2023.

  AJ Dillon, GB: Still playing second fiddle to Jones but could be workhorse if needed.

  Brian Robinson Jr., WAS: Early-down pounder with limited work in pass game.

  David Montgomery, DET: At best forms a tandem with rookie Gibbs.

Kendre Miller, NO: Could be a Kamara replacement down the road.

  Khalil Herbert, CHI: Off-season wasn't kind. Could be a three-man RBBC in CHI.

Tyjae Spears, TEN: Two ACL injuries. Might steal some third-down work from Henry.

Zach Charbonnet, SEA: 10-touch per game guy in Year 1?

Tyler Allgeier, ATL: 200-plus carries as a rookie but Bijan addition kills his upside.

  Antonio Gibson, WAS: Stuck in a rotation with Robinson.

  Jamaal Williams, NO: Coming off a ceiling season in DET. Could be a workhorse if Kamara is suspended.

Roschon Johnson, CHI: Likely stuck behind Herbert and Foreman for 2023.

  Alexander Mattison, MIN: Returns on a two-year deal.

Samaje Perine, DEN: Could have significant value in 2023 if Javonte is slow to recover from ACL.

Chase Brown, CIN: Loss of Perine could mean a significant 2023 role for the rookie.

  Ezekiel Elliott, FA: Double-digit TDs saved his 2022 season. Back in DAL for 2023?

  Leonard Fournette, FA: Free agent.

Tank Bigsby, JAC: Etienne's physical complement?

  Elijah Mitchell, SF: Valuable backup behind CMC.

  Damien Harris, BUF: RB2 in pass-heavy offense

  D'Onta Foreman, CHI: Coming off best season as a pro but crowded backfield in CHI.

  Kenneth Gainwell, PHI: Crowded backfield will limit Gainwell's value.

  Devin Singletary, HOU: Backup to Pierce.

  Pierre Strong Jr., NE: No.2 RB job is open in NE.

  Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC: Role is unclear with McKinnon back in the mix. Team change likely in 2024.

  Jeff Wilson, MIA: Timeshare in Miami.

  Rashaad Penny, PHI: Can't shake the injury bug. 10-3-10-5 games played in last four seasons.

  Raheem Mostert, MIA: Timeshare in Miami. 31 years old.

Zach Evans, LAR: Good shot at being the No.2 RB for the Rams.

Kareem Hunt, FA: Still waiting for a landing spot.

  Jaylen Warren, PIT: Cutting into Najee's workload.

Deuce Vaughn, DAL: Don't see a lot of 5-5 179-lb three-down RBs in the NFL.

  Gus Edwards, BAL: Couldn't get any traction as offense fell off a cliff without Lamar.

DeWayne McBride, MIN: 7th round pick with ball security issues.

  Jerick McKinnon, KC: Short-term value in KC for 2023. 31 years old.

Eric Gray, NYG: Better receiver than any of the current NYG backup RBs.

  Joshua Kelley, LAC: Ekeler's backup.

Israel Abanikanda, NYJ: Rookie battling for snaps in crowded RB room.

  Chase Edmonds, TB: Lenny out, Edmonds in. Likely second fiddle to White.

  Michael Carter, NYJ: Battling for backup role with Knight.

  D'Ernest Johnson, JAC: Jags now have depth in the backfield.

  Isaiah Spiller, LAC: Couldn't overtake Kelley for backup role.

  Cordarrelle Patterson, ATL: Bijan addition kills his fantasy value as a runner.

  James Robinson, NE: No role at the moment.

  Zonovan Knight, NYJ: Battling for backup role.
