Top 50 Fantasy Prospect Defensemen – January 2019

Dobber

2019-01-15

Here are the Top 50 prospect defensemen to own in your points-only keeper league – January edition!

 

As always, players within +/-5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal and at that point are a matter of team needs or personal bias. These rankings are late this month due to the extensive work done in the 11th annual Midseason Fantasy Guide (pick it up here right now!). The Midseason Guide, besides having second-half projections, also has over a dozen NCAA free agents that NHL teams are looking at, plus European players of interest, a look at the 2019 draft, some prospects who could join their NHL club late in the season and help you – and much more! Check it out here!

 

Friday I posted the Top 300 skaters list (you can find that here). Saturday was the Top 100 defensemen. Monday was the Top 200 prospect forwards list
