Fantasy Football 2022: Week 3 Flex Rankings


It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time to break out the fantasy football flex rankings for Week 3 of the 2022 NFL season. If you’re new to the concept of flex rankings, these are simply the combined overall rankings for running back, wide receiver, and tight end for each week during the fantasy football season. These are not suggestions for who to start in your flex spots.


This list is our initial rankings, but it will change a lot throughout the week. If you want all the latest updates, then be sure to check our staff rankings page. Promo code “RATPACK” gets you 20% off of any FTN subscription.

Week 2 Flex Rankings (2022) – Top 100

These are the top 100 fantasy football flex rankings for Week 2 of the NFL season.

1. Cooper Kupp @ARI (WR1) – He picked up right where he left off last season and currently has 24 catches through the first two games of the season.

2. Justin Jefferson vs. DET (WR2) – Last week was rough against Darius Slay, but Jefferson bounces back with a much better matchup on the board.

3. Jonathan Taylor vs. KC (RB1) – Minimal volume crushed Taylor’s Week 2 stat line, but he remains the cream of the crop among fantasy running backs.

4. Christian McCaffrey vs. NO (RB2) – We haven’t gotten a massive performance out of McCaffrey yet this season, but he’s coming off 100-plus rushing yards.

5. Dalvin Cook vs. DET (RB3) – A bounceback performance is in store after the Eagles shut Cook down Monday night.

6. Austin Ekeler vs. JAX (RB4) – Even in a poor rushing game, Ekeler still bailed us out last week with his work as a receiver.

7. Ja’Marr Chase @NYJ (WR3) – Can’t keep a good man down. Chase gets back on track after last week’s lackluster fantasy performance.

8. Saquon Barkley vs. DAL (RB5) – He touched the ball 24 times last week and will get another massive workload Monday night.

9. Derrick Henry vs. LV (RB6) – He’s posted two duds to start the season but will get force-fed against the Raiders.

10. Joe Mixon @NYJ (RB7) Nick Chubb just posted three rushing scores against this Jets defense.

11. Davante Adams @TEN (WR4) Stefon Diggs just posted three receiving scores against this Titans defense.

12. Stefon Diggs @MIA (WR5) – Speaking of Diggs, he gets a much tougher matchup this week against Xavien Howard.

13. A.J. Brown @WAS (WR6) – Washington has been extremely friendly to opposing wideouts so far this season.

14. Nick Chubb vs. PIT (RB8) – He’s tied for fourth among running backs in carries and figures to see another big workload Thursday night.

15. D’Andre Swift @MIN (RB9) – Despite being banged up, Swift still managed to post a rock-solid fantasy line last week. 

16. Travis Kelce @IND (TE1) – Through two weeks Kelce is the top scorer among tight ends. Stud.

17. Deebo Samuel @DEN (WR7) Trey Lance is done for the year, but Samuel still has a more-than-capable starter in Jimmy Garoppolo.

18. Javonte Williams vs. SF (RB10) – Williams is trending up after seeing a team-high 15 carries last week.

19. Tyreek Hill vs. BUF (WR8) – Last week was insane, but Hill gets a much tougher matchup against the Bills.

20. Mark Andrews @NE (TE2) – Andrews posted a signature performance last week against the Dolphins.

24. Najee Harris @CLE (RB13) – He played through the injury and will continue to see a heavy workload.

25. Antonio Gibson vs. PHI (RB14) – The Eagles just stifled Dalvin Cook, but Gibson will get volume in this one.

79. Chris Olave @CAR (WR41)
