Fantasy football rankings: the top 60 running backs for 2022

There is a pretty concrete consensus that Jonathan Taylor is the No. 1 running back this season. After that, it’s a matter of preference.

Do you think Derek Henry still has some left in the tank after being run into the ground (and into an injury) year after year with Tennessee? Can Christian McCaffrey stay healthy enough to be a superstar yet again? Is Najee Harris going to leap forward and take the No. 2 slot without a solid passing attack behind him?
