Top 50 Fantasy Prospect Defensemen – February 2017

by Dobber on February 11, 2017

The Top 50 prospect defensemen to own in your points-only keeper league

 

This ranking is for full keeper formats, points-only. It weighs upside with wait time and certainty, as well as the team's depth chart (and the politics therein), plus a small factor for immediate help (if he's in the league now, he's helping). Keep in mind that +/- 5.0 ratings points should be treated as an equal player, as it all depends on your needs and personal tastes (i.e. willing to wait years for a stud, or needing help sooner so would prefer a lower ceiling, etc.).
