Last Update:  August 14

Updated: Last year the Fantasy Guide was updated 44 times and the Draft List 19 times. Notifications about updates are on Twitter (@DobberHockey) if you need them. This shop page here will also have the date of the most recent update. You won’t be emailed about updates because 44 emails in three months is called “spam”. If your draft is approaching, re-download your Guide and it will be the updated one.


This is the only online fantasy service with 14 years of acclaimed Fantasy Hockey Guides. Dobber has contributed to dozens of magazines you’ve been reading from the newsstand over the past 17 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 25 years when it started as a project in one of his his fourth year Statistics Degree courses.



In the 2018-19 Fantasy Guide, 258 player projections were accurate within five points. THIRTEEN consecutive seasons of getting more than 200 player points projections accurate within five points.



Each year this Guide is updated approximately 50 times between August 1 and October 12. Sometimes a couple of times in a single 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 nine 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%, zone deployment, coaching tendencies 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 14 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…and uh…Oh! Right! Hockey. But …FOOTBALL!”  Are those Roto-fill-in-catchy-word-here.com football guys the people you want to rely on for hockey 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 14 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. In 2017, did your other Guide have Evgenii Dadonov in there? Dobber’s did – and had him for 45 points. And last year, most Guides didn’t have Erik Gustafsson at all! DobberHockey’s Guide had him projected for 31 points in 67 games. Sure would have been nice to get those guys, huh?


That being said – Dobber has been the industry’s top-ranked projections (via Fantasy Ref) for three years running!



In a league with multiple categories? – Customize your Draft List based on your league size, roster size, positional demands, stat category weighting and more by using Fantasy Geek’s Draft Kit! The Draft Guru tool will walk you through it suggesting players as your draft unfolds. Just $8 extra if you add the Geek Draft Kit (save over half the reg. price) – use coupon code: geekdkit


In a deep keeper league with prospects? Pick up the 13th annual Fantasy Prospects Report along with this Guide – both are included in the Keeper League Fantasy Pack and the cost is just an additional six bucks.

  2. mario

    Year after year this is THE best guide to buy – the ONLY one that gets updated! I’ve regretted the years I didn’t buy it and will never again make that mistake.

  3. Charles

    I see no reason to consider any other product to help me in fantasy hockey drafts. Dobber’s Guide is the way to go. Paperless, constant updates and the most complete guide. #DobbersFantasyGuide

  4. Hayden Soboleski

    This has been my go-to guide for about 6 years and it just keeps getting better. Deep team insights that have led to lots of gems that more basic guides tend to miss or not want to gamble on. Highly recommend!

  5. bulletshockey

    Best bang-for-your-buck out there by a country mile.
    My go-to every year!!

  6. Kurt

    My 2nd year purchasing this guide…..hours and hours of parenting neglected because of it….highly recommend.

  7. Jamie

    Love the guide! Always updated which is something the print magazines can’t do…

  8. Keith

    Best fantasy guide available, been in the money every year I’ve purchased it! Wouldn’t enter a league with out.

  9. Jp pisani

    I have been buying this guide/pack for years! I love the the prospect guide as well as the fantasy guide. I find the breakdowns of each team and player to be incredibly helpful. I will be looking forward to getting this guide for years to come!

    Hâte de le lire en françcais !!

    merci beaucoup

  11. mage-users

    5th year getting this guide now and its the best one on the market. Love the Excel spreadsheet because you can modify it to suit your league settings.

  12. Patrick

    Excellent guide.
    It helps me a lot for constituting a strong draft board and getting ready for the season ahead.
    Keep it up!

  13. ledrew

    This guide is the best on the market. The numbers and analysis are second to none!

  14. Jadon

    Nothing better then finding hidden gems with the deep analytical research that Dobber and his team put into the fantasy guide. While the other GMs are drafting based on past years…. your drafting based on offensive/defensive zone starts, quality of competition and much more.

    Best Fantasy Guide in the game.

    Dobber helped me uncover Elias Lindholm last year… Enough Said.

  15. scott

    My 6th year buying the guide. Worth every penny!

  16. Daniel

    This is my second year in a row buying the guide. Love the fact that the guide gets updated frequently, and the collection of advanced stats keep me coming back for more. It’s nice that there is some logic/advanced stats behind the point projections as opposed to some other magazines that seem to pull some random numbers out of the air. Keep up the great work!

  17. Chris

    Have purchased every year for the last several seasons and always helps me make key decisions on players throughout the year. I use it all year long as I make trades and evaluate talent throughout each season!

  18. Darcy

    My 3rd year buying this guide. Excellent for drafts and throughout the seasons. Took 1st in 2 keeper leagues last year. Saves me the time of creating my own spreadsheets and figuring out player salaries. 5 STAR!!

  19. willfriesen

  25. Oscar Sala

    Dobber’s is the best hockey guide out there — hands down! Best insights, varied sources and voices, assessments are great blend of eye test and analytics — the whole package. Combine it with Dobber’s Prospects report and you have all the tools you need to create a fantasy dynasty! (Thanks Dobber for the extra winnings in pocket!)
