FANTASY TOP 250 PLAYER RANKINGS

NOTES: Standard categories include goals, assists, plus/minus, power-play points, shots on goal and hits for skaters and wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts for goalies. Forward positions indicate Yahoo eligibility for 2019-20 season. ... Value has been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past production, projected line combinations, defense pairs and goalie start volume, power-play usage, injury history, sleeper upside, anticipated regression or bounce-back candidacy, age and contract status. Any current RFAs are noted below. INJ. indicates player with injury concern.  

These rankings are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Rob Reese and have been updated with trends based on 2020 UFA (*) and RFA (**) notes, new position eligibility and NHL.com's forward and defenseman point and goalie win projections.
