10 Best NFL Offenses (2022 Fantasy Football)

Aug 9, 2022
Josh Allen

Josh Allen will look to lead one of the top offenses in the NFL in 2022.

Our analysts ranked all 32 NFL offenses, and we used those choices to create consensus rankings. Below are our comprehensive rankings, complete with a breakdown of the Top 10 NFL offenses.

Previously, our analysts took a look at NFL head coaches and their staffs, the most overrated and underrated players, the top rookies, the top breakout candidates, the safest pick on each NFL team, and more:

Fantasy Football Redraft Draft Kit

1. Buffalo Bills

Josh Allen is the first QB in some time to finish QB1 in consecutive years. The one knock on the Bills coming into last year was the run game balance or lack thereof, but Devin Singletary‘s strong finish and the drafting of James Cook have alleviated any remaining doubts about this offense.

2. Los Angeles Chargers

Justin Herbert is directing a high-octane offense in Los Angeles again in 2022. Last season the Chargers were fifth in points per game and second in red-zone scoring attempts per game, and there’s no reason to think that changes. The aerial attack remains headlined by Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Austin Ekeler, with solid tertiary pieces around them. With Isaiah Spiller and Gerald Everett added to the cupboard this offseason, its wheels up for the Bolts.
Derek Brown

3. Cincinnati Bengals

The offensive line was their glaring off-season issue and the Bengals addressed that fault. The Bengals are arguably the deepest and most skilled offense in the league. They’re also one of the younger ones, which is important when it comes to modern-day NFL standard. The O-Line tweaks make them top 3 and it’s scary to think this “complete” unit could be even better in 2022.

4. Kansas City Chiefs

Since Patrick Mahomes entered the league in 2017, the Chiefs have finished either first or second in yards per play every year — including Mahomes’ rookie season, when he only made one start. Mahomes is coming off his worst NFL season, but “worst” for Mahomes is still a level that 25 other NFL teams covet (and it would be foolish to bet against a rebound). Andy Reid has long been an elite play caller — a mad scientist constantly devising new ways to befuddle defenses and get his skill players into space. The Chiefs have one of the better offensive lines in the league, and Travis Kelce is still the NFL’s premier pass-catching TE. WR Tyreek Hill‘s lethal speed will be hard to replace, but the Chiefs’ WR corps is now deeper and more diverse than it has been. The RBs are … who cares? It’s the Chiefs — they’re all about the passing game. Three of my colleagues have the Kansas City offense ranked outside the top three, which is baffling. I have the Chiefs ranked No. 1.

5. Los Angeles Rams

The Rams have been top-12 in offensive yards each season of HC Sean McVay’s tenure. They can consistently move the ball and might be even better in QB Matthew Stafford‘s second year in the system.

6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

On the one hand, WR Antonio Brown is gone, WR Chris Godwin (knee) is likely to miss part of the season and TE Rob Gronkowski is retired (temporarily?). On the other hand, the Buccaneers still have QB Tom Brady, who has guided the team to top-three finishes in points scored in each of the past two seasons. Time remains undefeated: This could be the year in which Brady finally declines … but we might be too low on the Bucs.
Matthew Freedman

7. Dallas Cowboys

Pick an offensive category. I can promise you the Dallas Cowboys were near the top of the list in everyone. In 2021 Dallas ranked first in points per game, second in points per play, seventh in EPA and success rate per play, and sixth in total plays. While the team lost Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup could be slow out the gate, this roster still has plenty of firepower to repeat those mouthwatering numbers this year.
Derek Brown

8. San Francisco 49ers

Trey Lance will add a different dynamic to this stout offense. Lance’s scrambling ability and strong arm will provide playmaking opportunities that Jimmy Garoppolo could never. Last season the 49ers finished sixth in EPA per play and 12th in offensive success rate. Adding Lance to a talented cast including George Kittle, Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and Elijah Mitchell equals scoreboard fireworks in 2022.
Derek Brown

9. Denver Broncos

The Broncos somehow managed to finished 12th in positive EPA/dropback last season despite rolling out below-average QBs. The credit goes to the vast array of talent skill players in Mile High, ranging from WR Courtland Sutton to RB Javonte Williams and TE Noah Fant. Adding Russell Wilson into the mix is what makes this team a Super Bowl-caliber roster because they finally have an offense that match their Top 10 defense.
Andrew Erickson

10. Minnesota Vikings

I’m low on the Vikings offense relative to the other rankers. I like QB Kirk Cousins (8.1 AY/A in four years with team). I like WR Justin Jefferson (NFL-record 3,016 yards receiving in first two seasons). I like RB Dalvin Cook (4,955 yards, 36 touchdowns over past three seasons). But WR Adam Thielen is aging (32 years old when the season starts). The offensive line is average. And I’m dubious that new HC Kevin O’Connell actually is the second coming of Sean McVay, given that in his one year as an offensive coordinator without McVay (2019, WAS) he oversaw the offense that scored the fewest points in the NFL (16.6 points per game). I’m not saying O’Connell can’t successfully implement the McVay offense in Minnesota — but we shouldn’t assume that he will.
