FANTASY TOP 100 FORWARDS

Standard fantasy categories: goals, assists, plus/minus, power-play points, shots on goal and skaters. Value has been quantified based on factors including, but not limited to, past production in the regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs, line combinations, injury history or concern, age, contract status and overall upside for the rest of this season. Forward positions indicate eligibility in Yahoo Fantasy leagues. This list is a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Anna Dua.
