College Fantasy Football: Top 200 Rankings for 2022

Lew Nichols III, Central Michigan Chippewas Football

Lew Nichols III may not be a household name to casual college football fans but fantasy managers know all about the Central Michigan running back who led the nation in rushing last season.

With the positional rankings now revealed for the upcoming college fantasy football season, it is time to see how each position stacks up against the other.

Below are the top 200 players for the 2022 season and there is a healthy mix of quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers near the top. While quarterbacks are typically the highest scorers and most valuable commodities in CFF, this blend speaks to the amount of talent returning to college football for the 2022 season.

Athlon Sports contributor and resident college fantasy football expert Mike Bainbridge (@MBainbridgeCFF) is here to help you prepare for the upcoming college fantasy football draft season with our positional rankings. Below is the scoring system used to compile these rankings:

25 passing yards = 1 point
Passing TD = 4 points
10 rushing yards = 1 point
Rushing TD = 6 points
Receptions = 0.5 points per reception
10 receiving yards = 1 point
Receiving TD = 6 points
