NBA Weekly Player Rankings: Dialing Back LeBron
NBA Weekly Player Rankings: Dialing Back LeBron

This article is part of our NBA Weekly Player Rankings series.

This is our weekly cheat sheet based on a 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 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.

Four Games: BKN, CLE, DET, HOU, LAC, LAL, OKC, SAC, UTA, WAS

Three Games: ATL, BOS, CHA, CHI, DAL, DEN, IND, MIA, MIL, MIN, NOR, NYK, ORL, PHI, PHO, POR, SAS, TOR

Two Games: GSW, MEM
