We are one month into the 2022 NFL season, as well as the fantasy football season. At this point in the year, you can accurately evaluate your fantasy team and the fantasy football stats as a whole. There are contenders and pretenders, as well as buy-low and sell-high targets. To save you some research time, below we will list the fantasy football stats leaders after one month of the season.
Fantasy football stats take PPR scoring into account. We will take a look at the top five fantasy football leaders at each position so far.
After you check out the fantasy football leaders below, join our new Facebook group called Fantasy Football by Committee (FFBC). At FFBC, you can get and give fantasy football advice all season long. Whether you are looking to win your fantasy league or make your name known in the fantasy industry, FFBC is a great place for you!
QB | Fantasy Football Stats Leaders
Lamar Jackson Fantasy QB1 – 119.3 pts
Josh Allen Fantasy QB2 – 114.4 pts
Jalen Hurts Fantasy QB3 – 103.3 pts
Patrick Mahomes Fantasy QB4 – 94.7 pts
Jared Goff Fantasy QB5 – 91.6 pts
The top four fantasy football stats leaders at the QB position aren’t a surprise. Jared Goff, how the hell did you get here? The Detroit Lions offense is legitimately good, powered by one of the best offensive lines in the league. Defensively, the Lions are terrible, making the game script perfect for Goff to continue passing at a high rate, much like Blake Bortles during his best fantasy season.
RB | Fantasy Football Stats Leaders
Saquon Barkley Fantasy RB1 – 86.0 pts
Nick Chubb Fantasy RB2 – 85.6 pts
Austin Ekeler Fantasy RB3 – 77.8 pts
Clyde Edwards-Helaire Fantasy RB4 – 75.5 pts
Christian McCaffrey Fantasy RB5 – 71.8 pts
Saquon Barkley has remained healthy through the first month of the season, and he has turned back the clock. However, with 99 touches through four weeks, long-term health is a concern.
Christian McCaffrey has remained relatively healthy as well, but he is topped in the fantasy football stats by Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who was called a bust by many in the fantasy community last season when he was playing hurt.
WR | Fantasy Football Stats Leaders
Cooper Kupp Fantasy WR1 – 106.2 pts
Stefon Diggs Fantasy WR2 – 95.6 pts
Tyreek Hill Fantasy WR3 – 91.2 pts
Justin Jefferson Fantasy WR4 – 85.6 pts
Jaylen Waddle Fantasy WR5 – 78.8 pts
Cooper Kupp remains the fantasy football stats leader at the WR position this season, and there are two Miami Dolphins receivers in the top five. Without Tua Tagovailoa under center for a bit, we could see those two WRs slow down in production, making Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle possible sell-high candidates if you’re able to truly sell high.
TE | Fantasy Football Stats Leaders
Travis Kelce Fantasy TE1 – 78.3 pts
Mark Andrews Fantasy TE2 – 68.3 pts
T.J. Hockenson Fantasy TE3 – 64.1 pts
Zach Ertz Fantasy TE4 – 54.1 pts
Tyler Higbee Fantasy TE5 – 50.4 pts
It’s not a surprise to see Travis Kelce and Mark Andrews as the fantasy football leaders at the tight end position. However, seeing a 28-point difference between TE1 and TE5 at this point in the season is crazy. The drop-off remains steep at the TE position.
K | Fantasy Football Stats Leaders
Younghoe Koo Fantasy K1 – 48 pts
Daniel Carlson Fantasy K2 – 46 pts
Brett Maher Fantasy K3 – 45 pts
Graham Gano Fantasy K4 – 43 pts
Evan McPherson Fantasy K5 – 42 pts
DST | Fantasy Football Stats Leaders
49ers Fantasy DST1 – 49 pts
Bills Fantasy DST2 – 48 pts
Eagles Fantasy DST3 – 47 pts
Buccaneers Fantasy DST4 – 46 pts
Jaguars Fantasy DST5 – 45 pts
