The NFL Draft is over, and teams have landed new quarterbacks. Find out which rookies have the best chance to succeed in fantasy football this season.

The ending of the NFL Draft in April marks the unofficial start of the fantasy football offseason. It’s around this time when the die-hards begin their research, doing mock drafts, and creating their rankings.

In a relatively weaker quarterback class compared to most seasons, there are a few rookie signal callers who could emerge as fantasy-relevant options this season.

Top rookie quarterbacks for fantasy football 2022

5. Malik Willis — Tennessee Titans

Malik Willis has the combination of speed and arm strength that a lot of the league is looking for in quarterbacks now, which is why his fall to the third round was a surprise for many. His fit in Tennessee is interesting, especially because they have a steady starter already who plays a very different game than Willis in Ryan Tannehill.

Football wise, Willis may emerge from this draft class as being the most successful. His skillset, combined with the Titans’ offensive weapons is a recipe for success. However, he may have to take the ‘Patrick Mahomes route’ to get there. He’ll likely redshirt this season, barring unforeseen circumstances.

If these were dynasty rankings, Willis would be near the top. But for 2022, he may not make much of, if any, impact. But his upside still warrants him consideration in keeper drafts.
