Top 100 Keeper League Defensemen – May 2018

by Dobber on May 5, 2018

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

 

April, May and June are my "fun months". These are when I stop including this season's immediate payback, and look ahead to next year and onward. But I do it without crunching the numbers. My Fantasy Guide is out on August 1 and so the numbers, free agency, depth charts all get factored into July and August rankings. Until then, I go through player by player and focus more on their 3YP, upside, and then ballpark next season's points. Fun, right?

These are for points-only leagues, I look no further than three years ahead, players within +/- 5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal and at that point become a matter of personal bias and/or team needs.
