It’s football SZN! We’re just days away from the 2022-23 NFL football season, and if you haven’t been living under a rock you know we’ve created DraftKings ReignMakers Football, an NFT-based fantasy football competition. If you want to learn more about the rules, policies, and gameplay, visit the link here.
You can expand your Reignmaker’s roster and collection in a number of ways. Let’s break down each offensive position (QB, RB, WR, TE) and see how they fared in the marketplace last month.
The NFL is a quarterback league; there are no two ways. like quarterbacks lamar Jackson, Josch everyone and jalen Hurts have the advantage of weekly and league wins, so it’s no surprise they’re doing well in the marketplace. They are superstars. Josh Allen is the highest-rated QB this season across all formats, including Reignmakers. Allen can be found in seasonal drafts as early as the second round. Allen threw for 4,407 yards and 36 touchdowns in the regular season. He also rushed for 763 yards and six TDs. Jalen Hurts could end up as QB1 in all fantasy formats – his advantage is immense. Added Eagles offense AJ Brown, who averaged eight goals per game and 19.1 DKFP in his last three regular-season games in 2021. Hurts has the rushing ability and offensive weapons to take that offense to the next level, making it a popular card this season. Let’s look at the top 6 quarterback sales (no repeats):
|Josh Allen: 2022 Genesis Set Holo (Reignmaker)||$14,400|
|Joe Burrow: 2022 Genesis Set Holo (Reignmaker)||$13,100|
|Patrick Mahomes II: 2022 Genesis Set Holo (Reignmaker)||$13,000|
|Tom Brady: 2022 Genesis Set (Reignmaker)||$10,000|
|Lamar Jackson: 2022 Genesis Set Holo (Reignmakers)||$10,000|
|Jalen Hurts: 2022 Genesis Set Holo (Reignmakers)||$7,900|
The consensus #1 pick this season and in years past is the running backs. Jonathan Taylor led the league in carries, rushing yards and rushing touchdowns last season. Still, the position can be inconsistent, and health can sometimes be an issue running back. Christian McCaffrey has played ten games over the past two seasons, and we’ve seen second/third row running backs play exceptionally well when the starter has to miss games. Most leagues implement a PPR (points per reception) scoring system, and the running backs who can catch the ball from the backfield are of great value for one simple reason – they can score points in a variety of ways. McCaffrey, austin disgust, D’Andre Quickly, Aaron Jones and even Saquon Barkley are valuable fantasy assets. The marketplace still thinks RBs are worth their weight in gold, or digital gold in this case. Here are the top 5 of August:
Reigmakers: Running Backs
|Christian McCaffrey: 2022 Genesis Set Holo (Reignmaker)||$16,000|
|Jonathan Taylor: 2022 Genesis Set Holo (Reignmaker)||$12,000|

|Dalvin Cook: Genesis Set 2022 (Reignmaker)||$9,000|
|Joe Mixon: 2022 Genesis Set Holo (Reignmaker)||$8,269|
Wide receivers / tight ends
Cooper Kupp brought down the proverbial house last season with 1,947 receiving yards, 16 touchdowns and 11 goals per game. He also averaged 27.8 DKFP and booked a total of 145 receptions. This season is all about Justin Jefferson, who finished fourth in the WR position in most fantasy football scoring formats. New Minnesota Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell has Jefferson off the board as the No. 1 receiver in a season-long fantasy and best-ball leagues. Jefferson was also seen taking reps in the backfield; it could be a massive year for the third-year wideout. Still, the Marketplace has spoken and believes Kupp is still Reignmakers’ most valuable asset this season. If the marketplace is hinting at future events, there may be a changing of the guard at the tight end position. Atlanta Falcons Kyle Pitts was the most expensive TE, followed by Travis Kelce and Darren Waller. Pitts was fourth in goals per snap and yards per route, with at least 50 goals, according to PFF.com.
