Here are the top 120 defensemen to own in your points-only dynasty leagues – August edition!

ANNOUNCEMENT: The 17th (!) Annual Fantasy Hockey Guide is NOW OUT. This thing sells itself, I don’t have to sell you on it. If you want to keep up with the other GMs in your league, simply pick it up here (immediate download).

And speaking of awesome fantasy guides, these rankings now reflect those projections, upsides and 3YP estimates. A full audit of every player, so you will see a lot of movement here. Furthermore – the 2022 draftees are in!

As always, players ranked between +/- 5.0 rating points should be considered equal value and would depend on your league’s specific format, your team needs and your personal preference.
