2022 RB Fantasy Football Rankings: Where do Antonio Gibson, Cam Akers, and J.K. Dobbins rank?

After a relatively quiet offseason for the position, what is the shape of the 2022 fantasy football RB rankings coming out of the NFL Draft?

Until the 2022 NFL Draft, it had felt like a relatively static offseason for the fantasy football RB rankings heading into 2022. A number of the premier free agent options remained with their previous team or headed into a murky situation with a new club. However, some intriguing draft picks add a fresh level of confusion in a couple of spots. Let’s take a look at where PFN fantasy analysts Tommy Garrett and Jason Katz have the top 80 RBs in their 2022 fantasy football rankings.

Additionally, where do the rookie backs sit, with Breece Hall, Kenneth Walker III, and James Cook all in intriguing situations in their first year?
