Fantasy: UPDATED Banger League (hits + blocks) Rankings - Top 250

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Here are the top 250 skaters and goalies ranking in descending order based on their value in 10- or 12-team "banger leagues." A typical banger league consists of the following categories:

Skaters Goalies
Goals Wins
Assists Goals-against average
Plus/minus Save percentage
Penalty minutes Shutouts
Power-play points
Shots on goal
Hits
Blocked shots

The key difference between a banger league and a standard league is the addition of hits and blocked shots. Though two additional categories may seem like a minor difference, it can have a major affect on the value of players.
