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

After five weeks of reviewing the entire pipeline of the NHL and adding nearly 75 prospects to my database, the list is ready. And in the end, there were no major changes to the upper part of the list. But, on a personal note, I’m glad to have a full file again – now I can move forward with the planning of this year’s Fantasy Prospects Report (out June 1!).

Players within +/- 5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal. The Top 200 Fantasy Prospect Forwards ranking was posted Wednesday (here).

As always, you can click on any player name to be taken to his DobberProspects profile page with our full scouting report (let me know in the comments of any errors).
