Top 50 Fantasy Hockey Prospect Defensemen

by Dobber on December 12, 2018

 

Here are the Top 50 prospect defensemen to own in your points-only keeper league.

 

Lots of minor tweaking this month, but nothing major worth noting here. As always, players within +/-5.0 rating points should be considered equal value and at that point are based on your team need (wait time, certainty/risk factor, upside, likelihood). 

Graduated players for this month are below the chart. Click on a player name to be taken to his DobberProspects fantasy scouting profile. Click here to see the Top 200 fantasy prospect forwards, posted Tuesday.
