Top 200 Fantasy Prospect Forwards – February 2019

by Dobber on February 15, 2019

Here are the Top 200 prospects to own in your points-only keeper league – February edition!

 

As always, players within +/-5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal and at that point are a matter of team needs or personal bias. These rankings are late this month due to a thorough review of each team's depth chart in an effort to find any players with fantasy upside that I didn't yet have on my template. Yep, I always have an excuse for my tardiness. But I started the process on the 8th (two days in advance) and just kind of lost myself in it. I didn't want to do 10 teams thoroughly and then whip through the rest. So here we are. My Twitter followers did get an update on this:

 

It turns out that only a couple of newcomers actually cracked the list (although a few lower-ranked players I was able to catch their great seasons and bump them up into the Top 200). So what I've done is presented a list at the bottom of new players I added to the template. The Top 50 fantasy prospect defensemen will be up on Sunday.

 

o= offensive player, t=two-way, p=power forward and big man, os=offensive player, but small
