Top 100 Fantasy Hockey Forward Rankings - February 3rd, 2022

February 3rd update: first crack at the forwards this month. New rankings format shows player's projected points floor and upside to help you make those tough fantasy hockey decisions.

Our fantasy hockey forward rankings project the next 1 to 2 seasons, and consider each player's track record, upside, age, team and injury history. Because fantasy hockey league categories vary widely, these rankings focus on point production. Notes made in previous rankings may carry over to new rankings if they remain relevant.
