TPX Top 40 Fantasy Hockey Goalies: Dec ’16

In Rankings by Chris BlackLeave a Comment

With November coming to a close there is no change at the top of our goalie rankings with Carey Price leading the way. Price is having another MVP type of year and has Montreal leading the eastern conference. Behind him are a pack of goalies from the west that start the majority of the games and play for solid teams.

With Corey Crawford going down with an injury Scott Darling is a must add goalie in fantasy. Peter Budaj has taken advantage of J. Quick getting injured and has ran with the net. Keep an eye on Quick’s timetable as he will be the starter once healthy.

Chad Johnson has been very good for the Flames and has passed Brian Elliot for the time being. The tandem of Matt Murray and MA Fleury has been a little annoying for fantasy orders and neither are getting the amount of starts they deserve. Fleury will make his third straight start tonight but watched Murray grab the net before this.

This is the time in the fantasy year where trading for a stud goalie could really benefit you in the long run. Owners that have gotten off to a slow start may be looking to unload some players and taking advantage of this is key in any fantasy league. Here are our top 40 rankings for the month of December:
