Top 50 Fantasy Prospect Defensemen – March 2018

by Dobber on March 15, 2018

Here are the Top 50 prospect defensemen to own in your fantasy hockey keeper league (points only). March 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. Wednesday I posted the Top 200 fantasy prospect forwards (here).

    In a points only dynasty league, 20 teams, 12 keepers: Would Ryan Pulock be a keeper over, Josh Morrissey?
