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.

  Justin Jefferson, MIN: Fantasy's No.1 receiver in 2022. Led position in targets, receptions and yards.

  Ja'Marr Chase, CIN: Elite talent. Almost topped 1000 yards in 11 games.

  A.J. Brown, PHI: Perfect fit in Philadelphia.

  CeeDee Lamb, DAL: Established himself as a Top 10 fantasy option.

  Amon-Ra St. Brown, DET: 196 catches over the last two seasons. Established as a PPR WR1.

  Garrett Wilson, NYJ: Established himself as the No.1 Jets receiver in his rookie season.

  Jaylen Waddle, MIA: Big-play ability was unleased in McDaniel offense.

  Tee Higgins, CIN: One of the best WR2s in the game.

  DeVonta Smith, PHI: Almost topped 1200 receiving yards playing opposite AJ Brown.

  Tyreek Hill, MIA: 54 more targets than Waddle last season.

  Drake London, ATL: More passing volume would make London an easy WR2.

  Chris Olave, NO: Solid rookie season despite shaky QB play.

  Stefon Diggs, BUF: 5-straight 1000-yard seasons. Back-to-back double-digit TD seasons.

  DK Metcalf, SEA: Hasn't missed a game in his four seasons.

  Davante Adams, LV: 100-plus receptions 4 out of last 5 seasons.

  Cooper Kupp, LAR: Was dominating prior to ankle injury.

  D.J. Moore, CHI: Not a great landing spot. Will need to be efficient.

  Jerry Jeudy, DEN: More dynamic than Sutton.

  Jaxon Smith-Njigba, SEA: Lockett replacement in 2024?

  Treylon Burks, TEN: Battled injuries in his rookie season. Desperately needs a QB that can throw.

  Christian Watson, GB: Best receiver on the team, but is ceiling limited without Rodgers?

  Jameson Williams, DET: Six-game suspension to start 2023.

  Quentin Johnston, LAC: Chargers starting to inject some youth into their receiver group.

  Marquise Brown, ARI: Default No.1 wideout with Hopkins gone.

  Deebo Samuel, SF: Plethora of weapons may cap his ceiling. 49ers QB?

  Michael Pittman Jr., IND: Haunted by QB play in 2022 but ranked 12th in targets.

  Brandon Aiyuk, SF: Impressive 2022. Capable of filling No.1 WR when Deebo is out.

  Zay Flowers, BAL: More passing volume in BAL needed to realize reliable fantasy value.

  Jordan Addison, MIN: Should earn No.2 role sooner rather than later.

  George Pickens, PIT: Need more volume and better QB play to be a consistent WR2.

  Amari Cooper, CLE: Clear No.1 receiving option in Cleveland.

  Rashod Bateman, BAL: Likely to be volatile in this offense.

  Chris Godwin, TB: Managed a 100-catch season while recovering from knee injury.

  Mike Williams, LAC: New OC and staying healthy will be key moving forward.

  Terry McLaurin, WAS: Three-straight seasons of 1000-yards despite revolving door at QB.

  Gabriel Davis, BUF: Highly volatile.

  Kadarius Toney, KC: Intriguing talent, but has missed 15 games the last two seasons.

  Mike Evans, TB: Nine-straight seasons of 1000-yards. Brady gone.

  Christian Kirk, JAC: Contract may have been too rich, but he delivered his best season as a pro.

  Calvin Ridley, JAC: Can he hit the ground running in JAX after missing most of the last two seasons?

DeAndre Hopkins, TEN: Meh landing spot in TEN. Should see ample targets.

  Jahan Dotson, WAS: Ran hot on TDs in rookie season but should be inline for larger role moving forward.

  Jalin Hyatt, NYG: The Giants now have a speed component to their offense.

  Diontae Johnson, PIT: Zero TDs on 147 targets last season.

  Skyy Moore, KC: In the mix for more playing time in 2023.

  Keenan Allen, LAC: Hamstring issue derailed Allen's first 10 weeks of 2022.

  Josh Downs, IND: Will battle McKenzie for slot snaps.

  Rashee Rice, KC: JuJu replacement but volume is in question.

  JuJu Smith-Schuster, NE: Patriots top WR last season (Meyers) finished as WR29.

  Tyler Lockett, SEA: Four-straight 1000-yard seasons.

  Nico Collins, HOU: The top receiving option in Houston.

  Brandin Cooks, DAL: Decent landing spot for the veteran.

  Courtland Sutton, DEN: WR45 and WR71 in FPts/G the last two seasons.

Marvin Mims, DEN: Field-stretcher. Good chance to be 3rd receiver with Patrick injury.

  Jakobi Meyers, LV: Likely No.2 in LV but can't see him being a fantasy factor.

  Elijah Moore, CLE: Had a rocky 2022. Could be helped by an upgrade at QB.

  Jayden Reed, GB: Opportunity is available to crack the top three.

  Josh Palmer, LAC: Sneaky value given injury concerns of Keenan and Big-Mike.

  Darnell Mooney, CHI: Coming off ankle injury that cost him six games.

  Jonathan Mingo, CAR: Potential future X receiver.

  Romeo Doubs, GB: Ho-hum rookie season. Chemistry with Love?

  Wan'Dale Robinson, NYG: ACL injury on 11/20/22.

  Donovan Peoples-Jones, CLE: On the upswing. Had his best season to date in 2022.

  Alec Pierce, IND: QB concerns will limit ceiling for the time being.

  Michael Thomas, NO: 10 games played in the last three seasons.

  Tyquan Thornton, NE: Offense rotates receivers frequently making their value shaky.

  Zay Jones, JAC: Addition of Ridley may kill Zay's value.

  Chase Claypool, CHI: Had a difficult time picking up the scheme in CHI.

  Cedric Tillman, CLE: Fourth on the depth chart for now.

  Tyler Boyd, CIN: Third option in CIN puts him on the WR3/WR4 borderline.

  Hunter Renfrow, LV: Fell off the fantasy map with Adams in town.

  Curtis Samuel, WAS: Showed well in 2022 after injury-plagued 2021.

  Rashid Shaheed, NO: Efficiency monster that started to gain traction down the stretch.

  Khalil Shakir, BUF: TE Kincaid may be a thorn in Shakir's side.

  John Metchie, HOU: Missed 2022. Return in 2023?

  Michael Gallup, DAL: 2023 should prove to be better now a season removed from ACL injury.

  Marquez Valdes-Scantling, KC: Rotational player that has little fantasy upside.

  Allen Lazard, NYJ: Uninspiring WR3/4.

  Adam Thielen, CAR: Starting to lose steam as he approaches age 33 season.

  Allen Robinson, PIT: Hard to see a big fantasy impact as 3rd/4th receiving option in PIT.

  Parris Campbell, NYG: Got some traction last season but lands in crowded WR room.

  Corey Davis, NYJ: Jets have yet to release him.

  Tyler Scott, CHI: Likely won't realize any value until 2024.

  Odell Beckham Jr., BAL: 30-year-old with multiple ACL injuries. No thanks.

  Mecole Hardman, NYJ: Speedy but what is his role in New York?

  Michael Wilson, ARI: Too many mouths to feed at the moment.

  Van Jefferson, LAR: Currently No.2 in a weak WR room.

  Tutu Atwell, LAR: Speedy and small. Likely capped at WR3 value.

  Darius Slayton, NYG: May contribute moving forward but not likely to be a focal point.

  Kyle Philips, TEN: One of the worst WR rooms in the NFL.

  Robert Woods, HOU: Veteran presence that will likely be gone in 2024.

  Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, TEN: One of the worst WR rooms in the NFL.
