Top 50 Fantasy Prospect Defensemen – April 2018

by Dobber on April 18, 2018

Here are the Top 50 prospect defensemen to own your fantasy hockey keeper league – April edition!

Takes into account several aspects – each one is very important and how you prioritize them for your fantasy squad depends on your current needs (long-term, high upside or short-term, NHL-ready, lower ceiling). As always, two players within +/-5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal value and at that point comes down to team needs or personal preference. Below the chart are the prospects I have graduated over the past two months.
