Top 300 Keeper League Skaters – August 2019

by Dobber on August 7, 2019

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

The August edition is my annual full audit, as I go over each player and each team thoroughly for the purposes of the Fantasy Guide (pick up the 14th annual Fantasy Guide and/or the packages here). As always, players within +/- 5.0 rating points of one another should be considered equal value and are hardly worth squabbling over.

I posted the Top 100 Keeper League Goalies here.
