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.

Week 19: March 2nd-March 8th
Four Games: BKN, BOS, CHA, CHI, CLE, DAL, DEN, GSW, HOU, LAL, MEM, MIA, NO, PHI, PHO, SAC, TOR, UTA
Three Games: ATL, DET, IND, LAC, MIL, MIN, NYK, OKC, ORL, POR, SAS, WAS
