Top 50 Fantasy Prospect Defensemen – April, 2022



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

The first of my two annual audits are complete. This one has me going through every prospect in every system and see how they are doing, what their organization is saying about them, and taking a look at highlights. The second one will be in July, after the DobberProspects staff and I do another thorough review for the Fantasy Prospects Report (on sale in early May, available in mid-June).

Lots of movement this time. Huge movement. I graduated 30 players, including eight defensemen, so that alone moves the players that are lower on this list up eights spots. If they didn’t, then you know they didn’t perform as well as they could have and could almost be considered having ‘slipped’ despite moving up a few slots.

** Coming Soon! Pre-order Dobber’s 16th annual Interactive Playoff Draft List here! **

As always, players rated between +/-5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal value and you will need to determine whether you value lower upside but more immediate help versus higher upside and more risk/longer wait time.

The following players graduated this month:

Tobias Bjornfot
Sebastian Aho (NYI)
Sean Durzi
Timothy Liljegren
Alexandre Carrier
Cal Foote
Andrew Peeke
Gustav Lindstrom
