Top 300 Keeper League Skaters – September 2019

by Dobber on September 1, 2019

Here are the Top 300 350 Skaters to own in your points-only fantasy hockey keeper leagues – September edition!

 

Just some tweaks for this month, plus a few team changes and signings of minimal impact overall in your fantasy league. I also made adjustments, small ones, based on your comments from last month. I do read those, please speak up if you see something wrong and catch something that I missed.

Because of the lack of movement this month and the importance of the month, for September only, I will expand this list to the Top 350. Hope it helps! As always, players within plus/minus 5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal and at that point become a matter of team needs and/or personal bias.
