Top 50 Fantasy Hockey Defenseman Rankings - October 2022

Our first fantasy hockey defenseman rankings for the month of October, 2022.

Our fantasy hockey defenseman rankings project value for the next 1 to 2 seasons, and consider each player's track record, upside, age, team and injury history. Because fantasy 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.
