Box Score Breakdown — The Shaw Shanked Redemption

Brian Shaw was fired. The move prompted Josh Lloyd to purchase a plane ticket on the next flight out to Denver. Because Josh felt compelled to thank Stan Kroenke and Tim Connelly in person for relieving Shaw, I’ve inherited Box Score Breakdown duties today and tomorrow. I think a thank you letter would’ve been just as effective, but far be it for me to question the fiscal decisions of Mr. Lloyd.

Week 19 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, timeshare 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.
