Top 75 Fantasy Hockey Prospects – December 2018

by Jokke Nevalainen on December 10, 2018

 

Welcome to the first ever Fantasy Hockey Prospects consensus ranking at DobberProspects.

 

The way this worked was that each participating writer provided their personal top 50 ranking, and then average ranking was calculated based on those rankings. Number 60 was used for those who didn’t crack the top 50 on a list so that average ranking could be calculated properly.

 

Rankings were made for a points-only league that separates forwards and defensemen but doesn’t separate centers and wingers so that center prospects don’t get unnecessarily devalued. How much of a boost defenders get in comparison to forwards was up to the writers to decide.

 

Eligibility was based on Dobber’s prospect rankings (Top 200 Forwards and Top 50 Defensemen) which means Canucks super prospect Elias Pettersson was considered a graduate for the purposes of this ranking – but you can be pretty certain he would have been number one if eligible.

 

Goalies were excluded from this ranking because we did a separate ranking of them last month: Top 60 Fantasy Hockey Prospect Goalies – November 2018.

 

Here are the writers who participated:

 

Without further ado, let’s get to the ranking.
