100 lbs is a lot! I’d opt for dado over rabbet. weight will be on the drawer box as opposed to relying on glue/nails.

with that weight you only want to do it once otherwise you have to pull it all out and start over. 16”x22” will certainly “test” 1/4” anything even at half that load so I’d opt for 1/2” (I’d even think about 3/4” but then think about a snow load on a roof where 1/2 seems to be ok).
