Top 100 Keeper League Defensemen – July 2019

by Dobber on July 8, 2019

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

 

This month – new faces (NHL Draft), new places (FA Frenzy). It's all here. As always, players within +/- 5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal value and not worthy of nitpicking. When they're that close, it becomes a matter of your team needs and/or your personal bias. On August 1st the 14th annual DobberHockey Fantasy Guide is out and at that point each and every player will be audited and properly valued for the season(s) ahead.

 

Click any player name to be taken to their player profile and trade comparison tool. And seriously – not enough people take advantage of that, but that's just fine for the people who do because they get an edge that way! The Top 300 skaters were posted on the weekend, you can find that here.
