Product Description

An Adobe document (pdf) and the Draft List (Excel spreadsheet) comes with it. The best damn Fantasy Hockey Guide on the market. Guide and Draft List are updated through training camp to the start of the season. Sleepers, upsides, projections on a sortable spreadsheet, line combos and more – including projections for hits and blocked shots. The 12th annual guide brought to you by the fantasy contributor of Sportsnet.ca, Yahoo! Puck Daddy and the former fantasy hockey guy for TheHockeyNews.com (2002-2014) and Sports Forecaster (2004-2012). 

Last Update:  October 03 Available NOW.

Updated: This year the Fantasy Guide has already been updated 44 times and the Draft List 19 times.


This is the only online fantasy service with 13 years of acclaimed Fantasy Hockey Guides. Dobber has contributed to dozens of magazines you've been reading from the newsstand over the past 15 years, including The Hockey News and the Hockey Forecaster. He was the fantasy hockey writer for The Hockey News for 12 years with over 900 articles and he's been doing player projections for nearly 25 years.




In the 2017-18 Fantasy Guide, 250 player projections were accurate within five points. TWELVE consecutive seasons of getting more than 200 player points projections accurate within five points.



Updated approximately 50 times between August 1 and October 12. Sometimes several times in a day! Updates are FREE – simply re-download the pdf and you'll have the latest one. A list of updates are conveniently noted in the 'updates' section of the Guide. This is the only fantasy guide that has updated line combinations, projections, injuries and training camp cuts – sometimes 10 minutes after they're announced! Don't go into your draft with a Guide that has news and projections from late July. Dobber's Guide will have you set based on up-to-the-hour news!



For eight years, Dobber has added a section for each team breaking down what the latest in advanced statistics tells you about how the coach is using/deploying his players and what it means to a player's fantasy outlook (and to your fantasy squad). Includes 5on5 S% and CorsiRel analysis. But the Guide isn't bogged down with complicated numbers – just the straight projections, with this advanced stats analysis in its own section presented clearly for the layman.



Where is the rest of the fantasy hockey industry? While other sites shut down their content for the summer, DobberHockey is still there for you with rankings, analysis and breakdowns of the latest off-ice and off-season news. A fresh daily Ramblings has been posted every day for 13 years – not even missing Christmas! Other sites only wish they had this kind of dedication. Do you want to put your fate in the hands of people who take summers off and then suddenly reappear in September in time to take your money?



DobberHockey is dedicated to 100% hockey. All of our sister sites: DobberHockey, DobberProspects, Dobbernomics, the Hockey Forum, Goalie Post and Fantasy Hockey Geek are dedicated exclusively to hockey. For other roto-companies, hockey is an afterthought: "Football Football Football Football…oh, and uh…yeah whatever here's some hockey. But …FOOTBALL!" Are those the guys you want to rely on for tips and updates?


Alsoa full rookie report, including odds that each will make the team (and yes, the odds get adjusted and updated too), a sleeper chart with odds of the player reaching his sleeper number, a team-by-team analysis of the NHL schedule and how best to use the schedule to your advantage…and of course projections for over 700 players (including Hits and Blocked Shots). The Guide is an Adobe document and the accompanying Draft List is of course a multi-page spreadsheet (use the ones that work best for your league!). DobberHockey has been exclusive to fantasy hockey for 13 years. You don't want to pick up something from a website that closes shop for the summer and provides zero analysis and rankings between May and August, do you? Hell no. You want product from a group of fantasy diehards who never stop analyzing and breaking down the news – even if it's a minor signing in late July!


Remember – a good Guide is more than just projections. You also want to make sure you get all the players too! In 2010 only ONE Guide had Jeff Skinner making Carolina's roster and only ONE Guide had a projection for him: Dobber's. In 2014 only ONE Guide had John Klingberg seeing some games with Dallas and only ONE Guide had a projection for him: Dobber's. In 2016, only ONE Guide had a projection for Jake Guentzel and highlighted him as a sleeper for 45 points: Dobber's. And last year, did your other Guide have Evgenii Dadonov in there? Dobber's did – and had him for 45 points. Sure would have been nice to get those guys, huh?

    Invalueable content, updated frequently, for a reasonable price.  What else do you want? #WinYourLeague

  2. 3 out of 5

    I would give it 3.5 out of 5.


    My complaints : 

    – it doesn't make it easy to adjust the rankings for your own pool settings (or multiple pool settings). Sure, you can do some work in excel to manipulate it yourself but it would be nice if you could enter this in yourself before downloading to have it done already. Yeah, i get they are trying to sell a complimentary product however i know of competitive guides which do this for you without having to buy another product.

    – countless updates to the guide is AWESOME. Not knowing when an update has been done so that you can do an upload is annoying

    – goalie stats would be useful to include projected saves, save %, etc

    – 3 different tabs for skater stats is annoying, be nice to have all this on just 1 tab

    – this next one is for the prospects guide but it is annoying that guide is not available in excel format and didn't get updated after the draft

    • :

      Great feedback. I can put everything on one tab, I just thought it would make it too clunky. I will poll the readers and make that change if that’s how people want it.

      I can personally email you when I do an update, just expect an email every day. My point is…people will start to tune me out when I announce an update because I announce them frequently. I do announce on Twitter each update. Basically, my strategy is – if you want to look at the Guide, download it again. It will be the updated one, and it takes 1 second to download.

      Final point re: Prospects Report. This is partly for the Draft, as a primer. I did actually do an update after the draft (put in which team drafted which player)

  3. 5 out of 5

    (verified owner):

    If you're serious about winning your fantasy hockey league this year…you need to purchase this guide. Not only is it full of excellent intel that you won't find anywhere else, but the writing is funny, entertaining, and easy to read.  This is my 5th year in a row buying the guide and I hope to be doing so again for a very long time!
