Week 9 Fantasy Basketball Player Rankings

This is our weekly cheat sheet based on our 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 player rankings are written up following Saturday’s games. We will try to update the meter with any breaking news that happens on Sunday, but in most cases, any injuries, lineup changes, etc. that happen on Sunday won’t be accounted for in the rankings until the following week.

College Campus Tour (Pt. IV) – NCAA Hoops

This time, the College Campus Tour will take us around the nation to check in on some of the best second-generation stars donning NCAA Division I uniforms this season. The list of men’s basketball players whose fathers also showcased talent on the hardwood as student athletes is more extensive than one might think. The current crop includes names such as Shawn Kemp Jr. (Washington), Treavon Jackson (Wisconsin) and John Horford (Florida); all three of which have done their surnames well. However, the focus here is on a few sons that are each performing at exceptionally high levels for their respective programs.
