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
  Najee Harris, PIT: 374 touches as a rookie.

  Javonte Williams, DEN: Should be lead back beginning in 2022.

  Christian McCaffrey, CAR: Injuries have limited McCaffrey to 10 games over the last two seasons.

  Austin Ekeler, LAC: PPR's RB3 in 2021 including 20 total TDs.

Breece Hall, NYJ: Carter isn't going away but Hall should become lead back quickly.

  Alvin Kamara, NO: Off-season arrest.

  Derrick Henry, TEN: Is the volume starting to catch up with Henry?

  Nick Chubb, CLE: Four-straight seasons averaging over 5 yards per carry.

  Cam Akers, LAR: Impressive recovery from Achilles injury in 2021.

  Elijah Mitchell, SF: Worked his way into a lead back role.

Kenneth Walker, SEA: A good fit for a run-heavy team. Carson's neck issues could elevate Walker quickly.

  Saquon Barkley, NYG: A change of scenery may do Barkley some good.

  Josh Jacobs, LV: Fantasy's least favorite lead back increased his receiving work in 2021.

  AJ Dillon, GB: Committee approach with Aaron Jones in 2022.

  J.K. Dobbins, BAL: Coming off ACL injury.

  Michael Carter, NYJ: Falls into a complementary role behind Hall.

  Leonard Fournette, TB: Was third in receptions (69) among RBs in 2021.

  Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC: 10 games missed in two seasons.

  Travis Etienne, JAC: Rookie year lost due to foot injury.

  Tony Pollard, DAL: Has the juice to vault into Tier 3 if opportunity presents itself.

  Damien Harris, NE: The TD machine is more valuable in Non-PPR leagues.

James Cook, BUF: Bills found their pass-catching RB after striking on out McKissic.

Rachaad White, TB: Isn't a threat to Fournette's role in 2022.

  James Robinson, JAC: Late-season Achilles injury is a concern.

Brian Robinson Jr., WAS: Power back likely to be Gibson's backup.

  Cordarrelle Patterson, ATL: Unclear if the Falcons will re-sign the swiss army knife.

Dameon Pierce, HOU: Opportunity for a quick ascent is there in Houston.

Isaiah Spiller, LAC: Chargers continue to look for a complement to Ekeler.

  Gus Edwards, BAL: Coming off ACL injury.

Tyler Allgeier, ATL: Patterson is 31. Falcons need a young RB to elevate.

Zamir White, LV: The Raiders declined the 5th-year option on Josh Jacobs.

Tyrion Davis-Price, SF: Could easily leapfrog Trey Sermon.

  Raheem Mostert, MIA: Expected to be ready for 2022 following knee injury.

Pierre Strong Jr., NE: Path to playing time is blocked by Harris and Stevenson.

  Chris Carson, SEA: Neck injury limited Carson to 4 games in 2021. Surgery in December.

Hassan Haskins, TEN: Foreman gone to CAR. Titans looking for depth behind Henry.

Tyler Badie, BAL: Recent signing of Mike Davis increases competition.
