Top 300 Keeper League Skaters – August 2018

by Dobber on August 9, 2018

 

Here are the Top 300 skaters to own in your points-only keeper league – August edition.

 

This month is the big one – the annual full player-by-player audit. For the Fantasy Guide I review each player's listed upside and 3YP and tweak as needed. I also put in the calculated projections into these rankings. What's left is the following keeper ranking. Where players move up/down are where I had them too high or low based on monthly manual adjustments. That's why these annual "audits" come in handy…

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. Look for the Top D list tomorrow. The Top G list was posted Tuesday (here).

 

Click on a player name to be taken to his sweet new fantasy hockey profile (and bookmark that section because you'll be referring to it often because it's pretty awesome)
