Analysis

1 Stephen Curry GSW 4 Curry takes the top spot w/ the full slate and owners shuldn't have to worry about him being held out and he'll provide a lot of three's and dimes (as always)
2 Russell Westbrook OKC 3 Westbrook doesn't have the full slate this week, but he's been able to stay healthy and has shown no signs of slowing down his multi-category production. 
3 Kyrie Irving BOS 4 Remember, the Celtics can decide to hold Irving out any any given point, but as far as we know, he is scheduled to be active for his full slate this week. 
4 Damian Lillard POR 4 C.J. McCollum is still out and Jusuf Nurkic is done for the year meaning that Lillard's usage will be at an all-time high for the rest of the way, or at least until McCollum returns. 
5 Ben Simmons PHI 4 Simmons drive will be needed w/ Joel Embiid expected to miss at least two games this week. Expect him to look to focus on forcing the ball and himself in the lane. 
6 Kemba Walker CHA 4 Walker is carrying a lot of the scoring burden as the Hornets haven't been able to rely on their big men for much offense and he'll continue helping w/ assists. 
7 Kyle Lowry TOR 4 Lowry is healthy and w/ the full slate of games, he'll be the Raptors second prioritized scorer, who will also help w/ dimes and steals and he hasn't looked back since returning from his Back injury. 
8 Chris Paul HOU 4 Paul has been able to stay healthy and expect him to dish a lot of dimes as he's been good at keeping the Rockets offense fast-paced all season long. He'll be the second scorer. 
9 D'Angelo Russell BKN 4 Russell has a much healthier team now than earlier in the season and he'll still be by far and away Brooklyn's top option. He'll take plenty of shots and be a successful playmaker. 
10 De'Aaron Fox SAC 4 Fox continues to show why the Kings are much improved as a team overall. He's the fastest player in the league from baseline to baseline and he makes the rest of his teammates around him better. 
11 Trae Young ATL 4 Young has really shown his growth in the second half of the season. He's taking smarter shots and his passing and driving have also improved. Expect a lot of points and dimes. 
12 Eric Bledsoe MIL 4 The Bucks are still banged up and Bledsoe can be expected to take more of a scoring role on this week. His scoring and time w/ the ball should go up and his minutes will also improve. 
13 Rajon Rondo LAL 4 Rondo will be taking on even more of a playmaker role w/ LeBron James out for the rest of the season. Expect his assists and even his scoring to go up. 
14 Ricky Rubio UT 4 Rubio has been able to keep the tempo up on offense and he's been able to stay healthy lately. W/ other guards banged up, he'll play more minutes and help out a ton w/ dimes, points and steals.
15 Spencer Dinwiddie BKN 4 Let's not forget about Mr. Dinwiddie, who picked up right from where he left off before he got hurt. He'll play a lot of minutes and he'll certainly help facilitate the Nets offense. 
16 Darren Collison IND 4 Collison has seen his scoring go up ever since Victor Oladipo got hurt, but it's the assists and steals we are looking for. Expect full minutes for Collison as the Pacers gear up for the playoffs. 
17 Reggie Jackson DET 4 Jackson continues to be the Pistons third scoring option and he'll help a bit w/ assists as well. He'll actually get more shots to start the week w/ Blake Griffin hurt. 
18 Goran Dragic MIA 4 Dragic will be needed even more as the Heat fight for one of the final playoff spots and w/ injuries to Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson , he'll be needed to shoot more. 
19 Jamal Murray DEN 4 INJ: Murray hurt his Ankle on Sunday and he'll need to ice it a lot and the swelling will have to go down in order to make it to Tuesday's game. 
20 Mike Conley MEM 3 INJ: Conley missed his last game w/ an Ankle injury, but luckily for Conley owners, he doesn't play again until Wednesday. Remember, the Grizzlies are NOT in the playoff hunt.

Analysis

1 James Harden HOU 4 Harden keeps the top spot w/ the full slate as he's been the most productive fantasy player this season. Even w/ a healthy Rockets squad, he still continues to produce at an ultra-high rate. 
2 Devin Booker PHX 4 As of right now, Booker is not scheduled to miss any games, but w/ the Suns not involved in the playoff race, be on high alert for sudden changes in his status. 
3 DeMar DeRozan SAS 4 DeRozan handles a lot of the guard production for the Spurs and he'll provide rebounding and assists help too. He plays strong perimeter defense and can be trusted to produce steals.
4 Donovan Mitchell UT 4 Mitchell will see his usage go up a bit w/ Derrick Favors hurt. Expect him to look to get open at the elbow and he'll even get some time to facilitate the Jazz offense. 
5 Buddy Hield SAC 4 Hield has been a strong three-category producer helping out w/ scoring, rebounding and steals. He's a long-range shooting threat who will follow his shots and grab long boards. 
6 Klay Thompson GSW 4 Thompson will have some games in which he just help w/ scoring and others in which he'll produce boards and steals. Playing time will never be an issue for him. 
7 Khris Middleton MIL 4 INJ: Middleton has a sore Groin and he missed his last game. His status for Monday's game is very uncertain. 
8 Bradley Beal WSH 3 Beal is by far and away the Wizards top option and they need all of the help they can shooting because Tomas Satoransky and Jabari Parker are inconsistent. Expect a high volume of shots. 
9 Andrew Wiggins MIN 4 The Timberwolves are very hurt and Wiggins is the second scoring option behind Karl-Anthony Towns and we can expect him to see a lot of playing time this week. 
10 Jeremy Lamb CHA 4 Lamb has been a beast of a producer mainly off the bench. He's a sniper of a shooter who is always able to get open and he uses his quick release to avoid getting his shots contested. 
11 JJ Redick PHI 4 Redick will see more shots while Embiid is out. As always, he'll produce a lot from the perimeter, but he will try to force the ball inside to a bigger player who is posting up or cutting. 
12 Nicolas Batum CHA 4 We never know what to expect w/ Batum's whacky shooting, but he'll get a lot of minutes and he'll help grab long boards and even a bit w/ steals on the perimeter. 
13 Jordan Clarkson CLE 4 Clarkson will continue to log a lot of minutes at both guard spots and if Kevin Love sits, he'll see even more shots for the perimeter. He'll help a bit w/ assists as well. 
14 Dwyane Wade MIA 4 Wade shouldn't retire! He looks like he can play for another few years and w/ other mid-court injuries, expect Wade to take more mid-range jumpers and w/ the Heat in a playoff race, minutes will go up.
15 Evan Fournier ORL 4 Fournier will earn his currency in the rotation based on whether or not his shots are falling because if they aren't he'll be isolated and other players will pick up more shots. 
16 Caris LeVert BKN 4 LeVert has been able to stay healthy and the Nets use him as a bailout option a good amount, but don't get it twisted as he isn't afraid to drive the lane. 
17 Eric Gordon HOU 4 Gordon will continue to be the spark-shooter off the bench for Houston and he has good ball-handling skills and will help w/ assists to a lesser extent, but it's the scoring that's the main focus. 
18 Marcus Smart BOS 4 Smart's defense continues to keep him on the court and he'll get plenty of minutes at both guard spots and his shooting is all over the place, but he'll fight for long boards and steals. 
19 Danny Green TOR 4 Green will get a decent amount of shots in the Raptors offense and he'll serve as their main bailout option from the arc, but he'll also grab a few long boards and he'll help w/ defense on the perimeter. 
20 Kent Bazemore ATL 4 Bazemore is still involved in the Hawks offense and he'll see more usage if Taurean Prince has to sit for a game. He'll help a lot w/ mid-range scoring and should see 25-30 minutes per game.

Analysis

1 Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL 4 INJ: The Greek Freak missed his last game w/ an Ankle injury and his status for his first game of the week is currently up in the air. 
2 Kevin Durant GSW 4 Durant will be the 1A option this week as both he and Curry should be fully active for the week and he'll continue to be a multi-category producer, especially shooting from mid and long-range. 
3 Kawhi Leonard TOR 4 Leonard is not facing a back to back situation this week, but that doesn't mean the Raptors won't continue to be cautious w/ him. They can rule him out at any moment. PLEASE BE AWARE!
4 Luka Doncic DAL 4 INJ: Doncic is dealing w/ a Thigh injury and he missed his last game and it wouldn't be surprising to see him miss a game this week w/ the Mavs having nothing to play for. 
5 Paul George OKC 3 George has been impressive over the last few months. He's made even more of an impact. George will help a ton on offense as the Thunder's second scorer while playing shutdown perimeter defense.
6 Jimmy Butler PHI 4 Butler has been very clutch and a major impact player. He's been playing very good perimeter defense and he'll help primarily w/ scoring and grabbinbg steals. 
7 Rudy Gay SAS 4 Gay continues to be the third scorer for the Spurs. His mid-range shooting and post play have kept him very involved in the Spurs offense. He'll grab a good amount of boards too. 
8 Joe Ingles UT 4 Ingles has been a good sharp-shooter from the arc, but it's his defense that earns him extra love in the Jazz rotation. Ingles will help w/ steals, grab long boards and provide some help w/ dimes. 
9 Bojan Bogdanovic IND 4 Bogdanovic is one of the highest priority scorers for the Pacers. He's picked up a ton of shots ever since Victor Oladipo got hurt and he'll also help a bit w/ rebounds. 
10 Bogdan Bogdanovic SAC 4 Bogdanovic will be needed even more to shoot if Marvin Bagley III has to sit for a game this week. He continues to stick in the rotation as a major bailout shooting option. 
11 Terrence Ross ORL 4 Ross has done of a good job shooting the ball and driving and drawing contact. He will help facilitate the Magic's offense and produce assists. He'll also grab steals consistently. 
12 Joe Harris BKN 4 Harris is still very much in the rotation. He's used as a bailout shooter, but if the lane is open, he'll look to drive. He'll be a major help w/ steals on the perimeter as well. 
13 Cedi Osman CLE 4 Osman will take a lot of three's, but if Kevin Love has to sit, he'll play more inside and start taking more mid-range jumpers. Osman will help grab steals and long boards. 
14 Danilo Gallinari LAC 3 Gallo makes the list because he's a prioritized scorer for the Clippers. He'll take a lot of outside shots, but will creep inside off of screens and he'll also help grab boards. 
15 Gordon Hayward BOS 4 Hayward's usage is very inconsistent because the Celtics are very deep, but when he's on, they'll continue to feed him. He's been fighting harder for boards and in the lane on offense lately. 
16 Jonathan Isaac ORL 4 Isaac continues to improve, especially on defense. He'll get playing time at both forward spots nd he'll help consistently w/ points and boards. He'll also provide help w/ blocks. 
17 DeMarre Carroll BKN 4 Carroll  will get playing time at both forward spots and he'll try to often force his way inside. Teams forget that he can shoot from the outside and he'll also help grab boards. 
18 Dion Waiters MIA 4 The Heat's mid-court are injured and Waiters will see a lot more shots this week. He'll mainly help w/ scoring but he'll have games in which he produces more boards, dimes and steals. 
19 Kevin Knox NY 4 Knox will be one of the Knicks prioritized scorers for the rest of the way and he's still finding his sweet spot on the court. He'll help grab long boards. He's more effective when driving. 
20 Taurean Prince ATL 4 INJ: Prince has missed his last two games w/ a sore Foot and his status is up in the air for Tuesday's game. There's a chance he can play in his full slate of games.

Analysis

1 LaMarcus Aldridge SAS 4 Aldridge takes the top spot because of Blake Griffin 's health and he'll continue to produce a lot from in the post. Expect major help w/ points, boards and blocks. 
2 Kevin Love CLE 4 INJ: Love missed his last game because of a sore Shoulder and his status for Monday's game is uncertain. The Cavs are playing for the lottery at this point. 
3 Tobias Harris PHI 4 Harris has been able to carve out a nice role for himself on a deep Sixers team. W/ Embiid out for a couple of games, expect Harris to get more shots from the outside and he'll be needed to rebound.
4 John Collins ATL 4 Collins continues to be the prioritized scorer for the Hawks and it's hard stopping him once he starts driving. Expect a lot of points and boards for the rest of the way. 
5 Aaron Gordon ORL 4 Gordon is the Magic's second scoring option and he'll drive and shoot from the outside. He follows his shots often and will help out a lot by grabbing boards consistently. 
6 Pascal Siakam TOR 4 Siakam DESERVES to be the most improved player of the season. He's the Raptors toughest inside player who always sacrifices his body and he'll help a ton w/ points and boards. 
7 Blake Griffin DET 4 INJ: Griffin has a sore Knee that held him out of his previous game and he's not going to play in his first game of the week and his status for his other three games is up in the air. 
8 Draymond Green GSW 4 It's always hard for Green to score, but he'll find ways to score off of put-backs. He'll provide a ton of help w/ boards, dimes and steals and he's been able to stay healthy.
9 Serge Ibaka TOR 4 Ibaka will still get enough playing time in the Raptors rotation to produce. He's been playing less at the arc and that's improved his production and he'll also help w/ boards and blocks. 
10 Kyle Kuzma LAL 4 INJ: Kuzma missed his last game w/ a Foot injury. His status is uncertain for his first game of the week on Tuesday. 
11 Jayson Tatum BOS 4 Tatum will see more shots if the Celtics decide to bench Irving at all. He gets a good amount of time to create w/ the ball and he'll help w/ scoring, rebounding and steals. 
12 Paul Millsap DEN 4 Millsap has been able to be a good compliment to Nikola Jokic and he's taken a lot of mid-range jumpers. He's grabbed a good amount of boards consistently and he'll also compile steals in the post. 
13 Thaddeus Young IND 4 Young is a slasher who is always looking to draw contact. If he misses a shot, he'll crash the boards immediately and he'll also play good on the ball defense and help w/ steals. 
14 Larry Nance Jr. CLE 4 Nance is still a bit raw, but once he gets to the low post he'll help out w/ inside scoring and rebounding. His usage will go up if Love has to sit for a game this week. 
15 Marvin Bagley III SAC 4 INJ: Bagley missed his last game because he's sick and he'll have until Tuesday to get better so he can be active for his first game of the week.
16 Julius Randle NO 3 Randle would be much higher on this  list if he had a full slate. The Pelicans have nothing to play for and Anthony Davis is hurting and that give Randle even more scoring and rebounding potential. 
17 Harrison Barnes SAC 4 Barnes has fit very well in the Kings offense and he's done a good job of being a slasher and drawing contact. We can rely on him to produce points, boards and steals.
18 Marcus Morris BOS 4 Morris remains the Celtics Enforcer. He brings a lot of toughness on defense. Morris will shoot effectively from the outside, but he'll also create in the high post and he'll help grab boards. 
19 Al-Farouq Aminu POR 4 Aminu will continue to see more usage w/ McCollum and Nurkic hurt. He'll be slashing more w/ the ball and he'll get set up a decent amount at the elbow. Expect help w/ points and rebounds. 
20 Jae Crowder UT 4 Crowder continues to hang in the Jazz rotation and he'll provide help w/ boards and steals and he's been a more reliable shooter lately. He'll see even more shots if Derrick Favors sits this week.

Analysis

1 Karl-Anthony Towns MIN 4 The KAT takes the top spot as the 'Wolves are running out of options w/ Jeff Teague , Derrick Rose and Robert Covington out of the way. Taj Gibson has also been hurting and KAT will play more inside.
2 Nikola Jokic DEN 4 Jokic has been a major multi-category producer all season and even though the Nuggets are very deep, he's a very reliable ball-handler and jump-shooter and he'll grab a ton of boards. 
3 Nikola Vucevic ORL 4 Vucevic continues to be the Magic's top scoring option and he'll provide a ton of help w/ scoring and rebounding. He'll continue to help spread the floor and shoot from the outside. 
4 Andre Drummond DET 4 Shooting is not part of Drummond's game, but, because he's such a dominant rebounder, he's able to score off of put back and w/ Griffin hurt, he'll be fed in the post even more. 
5 Rudy Gobert UT 4 Gobert will provide low-block scoring help. He'll produce a ton of dunks and it's hard to stop him from scoring once he gets the ball in the low post. Gobert will also provide a ton of boards and blocks help.
6 Clint Capela HOU 4 Capela is the main inside player for the Rockets and has no competition, especially when it comes to scoring the basketball. He'll provide a lot of help on both sides of the ball and he'll grab a lot of boards. 
7 DeMarcus Cousins GSW 4 Cousins should get a few more minutes of playing time this week so his body can further get used to playing deeper into games for the playoffs. Cousins will produce in multiple categories. 
8 Marc Gasol TOR 4 Gasol often produces more when another player is hurt because the Raptors have a lot of depth. He'll still get a true rotation commitment, but he's not relied on to score as much. He can hit three's
9 Hassan Whiteside MIA 4 Whiteside can't shoot from the outside, but he'll produce points and boards very quickly as he doesn't give up on plays and the Heat are fighting to make the playoffs. Expect more minutes for him. 
10 Al Horford BOS 4 INJ: Horford missed his last game w/ a Knee injury, but, reports say that he should be good to go for Monday's game. 
11 Myles Turner IND 4 Turner has definitely found his stroke when it comes to his shooting and overall production. He'll help spread the floor and get plenty of minutes to produce points and boards. 
12 Domantas Sabonis IND 4 Sabonis will focus on playing in the post for the most part and just like his Dad, he has a few one-handed post moves and he doesn't need a ton of minutes to produce points and boards. 
13 Willie Cauley-Stein SAC 4 Cauley-Stein will find ways to score on this deep Kings team. He'll get fed in the post a lot, but he can also hit elbow jumpers as well. He'll get a good amount of minutes and he'll help grab steals. 
14 Mitchell Robinson NY 4 The Knicks have shown lately that they prioritize Robinson more than DeAndre Jordan and Robinson will continue to see the bulk of the Center minutes and help w/ points, boards and especially blocks. 
15 Enes Kanter POR 4 Kanter will see a lot of minutes for the rest of the way w/ Nurkic out and he doesn't even need a lot of playing time to produce points and boards. His usage will be high for his remaining games. 
16 Jarrett Allen BKN 4 Allen doesn't have a shot, but he will still succeed in the low-post and he'll score off of put backs while helping a lot more w/ boards and blocks on the defensive side of the ball. 
17 Tristan Thompson CLE 4 Thompson should be able to see 20-plus minutes for the rest of the way. His minutes and usage will go up even more if Love isn't playing. He'll help w/ low-block scoring and rebounding. 
18 Brook Lopez MIL 4 Lopez has been a bit better w/ rebounding because other options are injured and he's needed less at the arc and more in the post. Lopez will still provide a good amount of help w/ scoring. 
19 JaVale McGee LAL 4 McGee will see more usage if Kuzma has to sit and he doesn't have too much competition at the position and he'll provide support in scoring, rebounding and he'll definitely help w/ blocks. 
20 Anthony Davis NO 3 INJ: Davis has been dealing w/ a Back injury and he's missed his last three games. The Pelicans have nothing to play for so it wouldn't be shocking to see him ruled out for a game this week.
