Top 100 Keeper League Defensemen – July 2018

by Dobber on July 5, 2018

 

Here are the Top 100 defensemen to own in your points-only keeper league – July edition.

 

This month I'm still manually tweaking. The August edition will be fully audited with proper short-term projections entered into my template, proper lineups put in, etc. For this edition, I added in the best drafted players from last month, plus adjusted for the free agent frenzy (I'm sure I missed a couple, please let me know in the comments if you catch any).

As always, players within plus/minus 5.0 ratings should be considered equal and at that point become a matter of personal bias and/or team needs. The overall Top 300 Skaters list was up Wednesday (here). The Top G list was posted Tuesday (here).
