Top 300 Keeper League Players – December 2015

by Dobber on December 4, 2015

Crosby topples; Kane surges, the twins with the comeback and more in this month's Top 300 Rankings

The Top 300 skaters to own in your points-only fantasy league is three days late – all the better to build anticipation! Sidney Crosby slips to his lowest ranking since he was drafted. Yes, the slump has gotten that bad. Meanwhile, Patrick Kane is doing what Sidney Crosby was expected to do years ago – put up huge points-per-game totals over a lengthy points streak. The Sedin twins, Mike Hoffman, Leon Draisaitl and Rasmus Ristolainen also have big jumps. And Alexander Semin has left the Top 300 rankings for what is probably going to be the last time.
