Eric Johnson, Rotowire.com

This is our weekly cheat sheet based on our player's projected output and number of games. It assumes an eight-category roto style 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 Value Meter takes 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 on the Value Meter until the following week. Five Games: NONE
Four Games: LAL, MEM, NO, NYK, OKC, ORL, PHI, POR, SAC, SAS, TOR
Three Games: ATL, BOS, CHA, CHI, CLE, DAL, DET, GSW, HOU, IND, LAC, MIA, MIN, NJ, PHO, UTA
Two Games: DEN, MIL, WAS
One Game: NONE
