Top 100 Keeper League Defensemen – September 2018

by Dobber on September 6, 2018

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

 

This month is just tweaking the big one from last month (August was the annual full player-by-player audit). Mostly a few young players I adjusted, added some more new prospects and adjusted based on the Nate Schmidt news (knocks him right off this list since he won't put up enough points to help points-only leagues this year and his upside was never very high to keep for future years – just re-draft him next year). Because it's that time of year, I kept an additional 14 players on this list in case it can help someone…

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 top 300 skaters went up yesterday (here). The Top G list was posted earlier this week (here) and I also did the Top Prospect Goalies (here) and I should note that I made changes to that originally posted list and re-posted it.
