Top 200 Fantasy Prospect Forwards – February 2017

by Dobber on February 10, 2017 | (6 Comments)

The Top 200 forwards to own in your points-only fantasy hockey keeper leagues - February edition.

 

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.).

Check back tomorrow for the Top 50 defensemen...

  • Garrett Dyer

    Is there a reason Sebastian Aho (CAR) isn’t on this list?

    • Dobber

      He graduated a month or two ago. If a young rookie in the NHL isn’t on this list – he obviously should be, or he’s been graduated

  • Uator10

    Thoughts on Kaprizov? If his contract were up this year in the K, where would you rank him? Also, did you ever consider making a prospect goalies rank? I know in the top 100 on goalie post they are thrown in there but not specifically just them.

    • Dobber

      Kaprizov would be Top 20 easily if that were hte case.
      I do have prospect goalie rankings – new ones every three or four months. Just click the rankings link in the main menu and scroll down

  • Timothy

    Do you have any updates on Reway as far as his health? I’m hoping he can get healthy enough to live a normal life.

    • Dobber

      Last I heard was that he still hopes to play again, but it’s not assured. I had hoped to hear more by now, so it’s concerning
