NBA Weekly Player Rankings: Week 22

Eric Johnson

Eric Johnson writes about fantasy sports for RotoWire.

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 rankings take into account games played Monday through Saturday. We will try to update the meter with any breaking news that happens 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.

Week 22: March 21 - March 27

Four Games ATL, CHA, CHI, CLE,DEN, DET, GSW, HOU, IND, LAL, MIL, MIN, ORL, PHI, PHO, SAC, SAS, WAS
Three Games BKN, BOS, DAL, LAC, MEM, MIA, NOP, NYK, OKC, POR, TOR, UTA
