MIAMI, Aug. 16 (UPI) -- Running back Derrick Henry of the Tennessee Titans leads my Top 200 fantasy football rankings for the 2022 NFL season. Jonathan Taylor, Austin Ekeler, Dalvin Cook and Nick Chubb are among my other Top 5 options.

Two weeks remain in the preseason, which means fantasy football drafts will need to take place soon, as the NFL's regular season starts Thursday.

Selecting a running back with your first pick is a very common draft strategy, but you also should keep an eye on the top players at other positions. Davante Adams of the Las Vegas Raiders is my top wide receiver this season. Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills is my top quarterback.

Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs is my top tight end. I like the Bills as the best defensive/special teams and Justin Tucker of the Baltimore Ravens as my top kicker.

For other position rankings, check out my articles on the top wide receivers, quarterbacks, running backs and tight ends for this season. Those rankings will be updated over the final two weeks of the preseason based on injuries and depth chart changes.

The following Top 200 list also will be updated through training camp and up to the first game of the 2022 NFL season. My rankings are based on talent, strength of schedule, workload and injury history, among other factors.
