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.

COMMENTS
  Christian McCaffrey, SF: Ideal landing spot.

  Jonathan Taylor, IND: Injuries and team decline killed his value in 2022.

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

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

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

  Saquon Barkley, NYG: Upcoming free agent but expected to re-sign.

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

  D'Andre Swift, DET: Talented, but clearly the Lions don't want him in a workhorse role.

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

  Joe Mixon, CIN: Pass-game usage improved. Efficiency still an issue in run-game.

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

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

  Javonte Williams, DEN: ACL injury: 10/2/22

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

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

  Tony Pollard, DAL: A free agent that Dallas likely wants to sign. Ankle, leg injury.

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

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

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

  James Cook, BUF: Split time with Singletary towards the end of the season.

  J.K. Dobbins, BAL: Never got on track after 2021 ACL tear.

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

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

  James Conner, ARI: Volume hog when healthy in 2022 but new HC incoming.

  Rachaad White, TB: In a timeshare with Lenny.

  Miles Sanders, PHI: Headed to free agency.

  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.

  Tyler Allgeier, ATL: 200-plus carries as a rookie. Not very involved in passing game.

  David Montgomery, CHI: Headed to free agency.

  Kareem Hunt, CLE: Needs a change of scenery for fantasy stock to improve.

  Khalil Herbert, CHI: Could be lead back in 2023 if Montgomery isn't re-signed.

  Ezekiel Elliott, DAL: Double-digit TDs saved his season. Could be back in workhorse role if Pollard walks.

  Leonard Fournette, TB: In a timeshare with White.

  Jamaal Williams, DET: Back in DET?

  Zamir White, LV: Good bet to be the starter if Jacobs leaves.

  Jerick McKinnon, KC: Ideal fit in KC but headed to free agency.

  Cordarrelle Patterson, ATL: Still fantasy viable as long as ATL remains run-heavy.

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

  Alexander Mattison, MIN: Headed to free agency.

  Devin Singletary, BUF: Bills have been reluctant to give him a bellcow role.

  Elijah Mitchell, SF: Valuable backup behind CMC.

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

  D'Onta Foreman, CAR: Value took off once McCaffrey was traded.

  Kenneth Gainwell, PHI: Increased role if Sanders bolts in free agency?

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

  Jeff Wilson, MIA: Timeshare in Miami.

  Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC: Role is unclear especially if McKinnon re-signs.

  Rashaad Penny, SEA: Headed to free agency. Can't shake the injury bug.

  Damien Harris, NE: Headed to free agency.

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

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

  Raheem Mostert, MIA: Timeshare in Miami.

  Joshua Kelley, LAC: Ekeler's backup.

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

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

  James Robinson, NYJ: No role at the moment.
