In the preseason fantasy football top 150 point per reception (PPR) rankings “The Finale,” aka 7.0, we have reviewed all the training camp news, watched all the preseason games with Justin Fields, and monitored all the injury reports heading into Week 1. All this information has brought us to the final top 150. The chart below shows the latest top 150 for point-per-reception (PPR) leagues based on a starting lineup of one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end and a flex.
If your league has a different lineup build, i.e., only two wide receivers, running backs might move up while wide receivers might fall in the top 150. Finally, we included five “MY GUYS” for 2023 vs. expert consensus rankings (ECR) on FantasyPros.

My Guys for 2023
Player: Alvin Kamara
Overall Ranking: 43 (ECR 77)
Last season Alvin Kamara was able to return top 35 value on an offense that ranked 22nd in scoring. This season the Saints offense should get a jolt with new quarterback Derek Carr. Carr has been known to target his running backs at a higher rate than what Andy Dalton did in 2022, which should only help Kamara. Jamaal Williams will impact his ceiling, but D’Andre Swift was putting up top 20 running back numbers on per per-game basis alongside Williams in 2022.
Player: Jerry Jeudy
Overall Ranking: 51 (ECR 66)
Jerry Jeudy’s hamstring injury has many fantasy football experts scared off of him. Currently, Jeudy is ranked in the seventh round, according to ECR. At SICScore.com, they say that the injury could linger for the first month of the season, which could hamper his performance. However, rest of the season, Jeudy could provide WR1 upside. In 2022, in the 10 games where Jeudy played at least 50% of the snaps with Russell Wilson, he averaged 16 PPR points per game (PPG). That would have been good for WR12 last season. Even if you can’t start Jeudy the first few weeks, his WR1 upside rest of the season more than justifies a fifth-round pick.
Player: Justin Fields
Overall Ranking: 36 (ECR 50)
Over the final eight games that Justin Fields played in 2022, he was the QB3 in PPG, only trailing Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes. He was 2.1 PPG better than the QB4, who was Josh Allen during that stretch. Over that same time frame, his top receiving options were Cole Kmet (40 targets) and David Montgomery (24 targets). Now heading into 2023, Fields’ improved receiving core should be able to help him build off that strong finish. D.J. Moore provides him with a legit WR1, Darnell Mooney returns from injury, and Chase Claypool will now have a full offseason under his belt.
Player: Darren Waller
Overall Ranking: 41 (ECR 57)
After dominating all off-season long, Darren Waller gave us a glimpse of what his upside could be in the preseason. In that contest, he saw four targets securing 3-30 on the lone drive he played. Waller looks locked in as Daniel Jones’ No. 1 option. This is a role that not only has he proven that he can handle but dominate in for fantasy football. In 2020, Waller saw over 140 targets while finishing with 17.5 PPR PPG.
Player: Kenneth Walker
Overall Ranking: 28 (ECR 58)
Last season in the 11 games where Kenneth Walker played at least 50% of the snaps, he averaged 16.9 PPR PPG. That production would have made Walker the RB7 in 2022. Now heading into this season, many people are hesitant to draft Walker after the Seahawks drafted Zach Charbonnet in the second round. However, The Seahawks’ coaching staff has been known to lean on their veterans.
Back in 2018, when the Seahawks drafted Rashaad Penny in round 1, they ended up giving Chris Carson the full workload. This leads us to believe that the losses of Penny and Travis Homer probably led to the Seahawks prioritizing the position vs. not having faith in Walker in 2023.
