NBA Weekly Player Rankings: Week 16 All-Star Break

Eric Johnson

Eric Johnson

Eric Johnson writes about fantasy sports for RotoWire.

This is our weekly cheat sheet based on each player's projected output and number of games. It assumes an eight-category league with the following categories: points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, three-pointers made, free-throw percentage and field-goal percentage.

These are my rankings. They do not necessarily correspond with the RotoWire cheat sheet or our projections for the season. I use both as a rough guide, but I primarily factor in number of games played for the week, current player trends and pertinent information about the team (injuries, time share situations, etc). The Weekly Rankings take into account all the NBA action through Saturday night's games. We will try to update the rankings with any breaking news that happens on Sunday in the comments below, but in most cases, any injuries, lineup changes, etc. that happen on Sunday won't be accounted for on the Weekly Rankings until the following week.

Week 16:
February 10th - February 16th
Two Games: ATL, BKN, BOS, CHA, CHI, CLE, DAL, DEN, DET, GSW, HOU, IND, LAL, MEM, MIA, MIL, MIN, NO, OKC, PHI, POR, SAC, SAS, TOR, UTA, WAS
One Game: LAC, NYK, ORL, PHO
