Around this time, you of course have to name the top fantasy hockey forwards, but I left ya with a bit of a cliff hanger. Only giving 50 out now, so you can think about who will be on the list from 51-100…

A lot of these faces are the same old faces we know of from previous years, just a few emerged a little higher with a stellar, or improving 2017-18 campaign. For example Nathan MacKinnon rockets up the leaderboard going from 111 entering the year to #9, in which maybe he could be a tad higher. Patrik Laine and Auston Matthews continue to stay afloat the leaderboards. 2016’s #1, #2 overall picks were ranked #4 (Matthews) and #13 (Laine), the two now sit 7, 8 on the list. Matthew Barzal’s Calder winning, historic rookie season quickly shot him within the top 30 players on the list, last year he was ranked 235 coming into the year. Taylor Hall’s hart winning year, puts him within the top 20 list, last year he was #93 coming into the year. Now the Devils leading forward makes a name for New Jersey on the fantasy leaderboard. Some new faces in the top 50 who were not there at all last year, are far and few in between but Eric Staal, Brayden Point and Mikko Rantanen have proved themselves worthy of a top-50 nomination. Let’s see if who stays and who does not when the year gets going.
