Top-30 Fantasy Hockey Defenseman

All we have left are goaltenders now! But in reality who cares about those freaks of nature and their weird pregame rituals. Better off not ranking those creatures of hockey. Just kidding, honestly just hoping a goalie comes across this and gets a laugh out of it.

Anyhow… this year 2018-2019 Top-30 Fantasy defenseman heading into the year are as follows…

(Based on G, A, PT, PPP, PPA, PPG, PIMS, HITS, TOI, SHOTS) I do not account for blocks here because not every league or most leagues run that way. 

Top-30 Defenseman

  1. Victor Hedman, TBL
  2. P.K. Subban, NSH
  3. Drew Doughty, LAK
  4. Erik Karlsson, OTT
  5. Brent Burns, SJS
  6. Dustin Byfuglien, WPG
  7. John Carlson, WSH
  8. Roman Josi, NSH
  9. Seth Jones, CBJ
  10. John Klingberg, DAL
  11. Dougie Hamilton, CAR
  12. Torey Krug, BOS
  13. Matt Dumba, MIN
  14. Shayne Gostisbehere, PHL
  15. Aaron Ekblad, FLA
  16. Alex Pietrangelo, STL
  17. Mark Giordano, CGY
  18. Ivan Provorov, PHL
  19. Kris Letang, PIT
  20. Rasmus Ristolanien, BUF
  21. Tyson Barrie, COL
  22. Oliver Ekman Larsson, ARI
  23. Zach Werenski, CBJ
  24. Charlie McAvoy, BOS
  25. Jake Muzzin, LAK
  26. Mikhail Sergachev, TBL
  27. Brandon Montour, ANH
  28. Colin Miller, VGK
  29. Jacob Trouba, WPG
  30. Josh Manson, ANH

Ok, I was completely torn on this one. I am a big advocate for defenseman but some guys like Ekman Larsson, Ristolanien, Barrie fall off a bit due to their plus/minus, other players surrounding them, and honestly injury concerns. I like the bottom of the pack, around McAvoy down and think they all can be interchangeable at some point in the year. We can easily see Montour take off and surpass McAvoy but that bottom of the list is young and up and coming for sure. The top 10 is pretty simple, you cannot argue that or maybe you can but to me that’s pretty realistic. Anyone within that top 10 can realistically win the Norris this year to be honest.

The list looks good to me perhaps you do not agree. If not, feel free to comment below or tweet at me on Twitter @liveinthestands !
