We've made it, my friends.
It's the first full week of 2022 and the last full week of the fantasy football season.
Many leagues choose to conclude their season in the second-to-last weekend of the season, to avoid the possibility of key starters not being available in the final week because their respective teams have already clinched their playoff spot and they are just resting.
ESPN standard leagues play through Week 18, and that's exactly why we are here: to run it back once more with the names that you need to know.
And we'll get to the names shortly, but first, a humble thanks from me to you for the support of this column all season long. Your dedication to reading this column makes writing it a true pleasure and an honor.
Let's finish strong and kick off 2022 in style!
Note: All players listed on this column are available in more than 50% of leagues on ESPN.com.
