Top 120 Keeper League Defensemen – July 2022



Here are the top defensemen to own in your points-only dynasty leagues – July edition!

Not a lot done this month, just some tweaks based on a couple of key NHL trades, some injury news, etc. You’ll notice a bit of a bump for Los Angeles players. This is due to their acquisition of Kevin Fiala, which makes such a huge impact on their overall potential offense, the ripple effect will be felt team-wide.

The defensemen rankings are curated from the overall Top 300 rankings. As always, players between +/-5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal value and at that point become a matter of team need or personal bias.
