RANKNAMETeam# GamesAnalysis
1Luka Doncic DAL2Doncic was able to return right before the break and he looks good, hasn't had any setbacks nor has he been sore. We don't have to worry about a minutes limit.
2Trae Young ATL2With no Clint Capela or Jabari Parker (traded), Young will continue to have to handle more of the offense along with John Collins . Expect him to take plenty of shots. 
3Russell Westbrook HOU2The Rockets lack of frontcourt has benefitted Westbrook lately and he's been shooting better and the Rockets guards will continue handling most of the offense. 
4Ben Simmons PHI2Simmons remains the second option as the Sixers look to have a better final few months of the season especially when on the road. Simmons produces points, boards, dimes and steals. 
5Kyle Lowry TOR2The Raptors are still dealing with injuries and even if Marc Gasol returns, it shouldn't impede on Lowry's shots at all and he'll continue playing deep into games. 
6D'Angelo Russell MIN2With Karl-Anthony Towns out with a Wrist injury, it looks like Russell will be the top option for at least the next week or two and just like with the Warriors, he won't have competition for shots. 
7Kemba Walker BOS2Walker should see a little more usage if Jaylen Brown needs to sit out again. With Gordon Hayward playing more in the paint, that should help his assists rise a bit. 
8Devonte' Graham CHA2Graham has seen his mid-season struggles, but he has been showing signs of overcoming these struggles by becoming more of a passer when his shots aren't falling and that will result in more dimes.
9Chris Paul OKC2Paul deserved to be the MVP of the All-Star game because he's been a leader, motivator and the Thunder wouldn't be where they're at without him. He'll continue being the primary playmaker.
10De'Aaron Fox SAC2Fox will get a lot of time with the ball and when it comes to transition offense, he's very dangerous because of his speed. His drive is fierce and he's better off sticking to that rather than shooting. 
11Tomas Satoransky CHI3The Bulls have the most games of any team this week and Satorasnky is in a good spot because the Bulls are still dealing with a lot of injuries and he'll be the second scoring option behind Zach LaVine .
12Spencer Dinwiddie BKN2We don't know when we'll see Kyrie Irving back on the court as he hurt his Shoulder again. There's a chance that Dinwiddie could be running plays as the primary option for the rest of the season. 
13Lonzo Ball NO2Ball is not the best shooter, but even with Zion Williamson in the mix, he's been able to keep himself involved, especially when Brandon Ingram was banged up. We'll see if it continues with Ingram back.
14Malcolm Brogdon IND2It's going to be very interesting to see who loses shots as Victor Oladipo picks up more playing time down the stretch. The good news for Brogdon is that he will have the most time with the ball. 
15Ricky Rubio PHX2Rubio and Devin Booker have complimented each other very nicely and even with it looking like Deandre Ayton will be returning to the lineup next game, he'll still get a good amount of shots. 
16Jamal Murray DEN2Murray is fully healthy and if Will Barton continues to sit, more will be asked of him when it comes to running the point and his assists should be higher this week. 
17Ja Morant MEM2Morant will continue commanding a good amount of the offense and he'll log more minutes late in the season. He's made teammates such as Jonas Valanciunas more productive. 
18Eric Bledsoe MIL2With Giannis Antetokounmpo healthy, Bledsoe's usage will drop unless he's off the floor. Bledsoe has helped put up defensive stats such as boards and steals and plays over 27 minutes per game. 
19Derrick Rose DET2Rose is fully healthy and he should be able to see more minutes and shots because the Pistons are negotiating a buyout with Reggie Jackson and that will allow rose to be the Pistons top option.
20Dennis Schroder OKC2Schroder remains in the running for the Sixth Man of the Year because he leads the Thunder's second-unit in scoring and he'll log plenty of minutes behind Chris Paul


RANKNAMETeam# GamesAnalysis
1James Harden HOU2There's not too much explaining for Harden being at the top. The Rockets don't have a true big-man in the middle and Harden will be asked not only to shoot more, but to drive the lane more. 
2Zach LaVine CHI3LaVine gets the second spot and he should be one of the top producers for the week being that the Bulls are the only team with three games this week and they are 70% injured as a whole. 
3Bradley Beal WSH2Beal will continue getting the eternal green light and even when the Wizards are at full strength, still expect him to take a lot of shots and he'll even have time to operate out of the PG spot. 
4Jimmy Butler MIA2Butler is fully recovered and nothing should hold him back and he'll have the ball in his hands a bit more as Tyler Herro continues to recover. Butler remains the top scoring option for Miami.
5Devin Booker PHX2Booker has had an incredible season in which we've seen growth and maturity. He doesn't chuck up shots with bad looks as much and he pushes the ball inside which helps him compile more dimes.
6Jrue Holiday NO2Surprisingly, it looked like Holiday was losing usage with Williamson in the lineup, but he's produced three straight double-doubles. We'll see what happens with a fully healthy Ingram back in the mix. 
7Khris Middleton MIL2Middleton remains the second scoring option and if the Bucks are in any blowout situations, they'll let Middleton take command of the offense before pulling him mid-fourth quarter.
8DeMar DeRozan SAS2DeRozan says that he's feeling 100 percent after resting his Back during the All-Star break. He had been suffering from Back spasms. He should be able to handle a full workload this week.
9Fred VanVleet TOR2VanVleet should still see a lot of shots because he's not only earned his spot as the team's third scoring option, but Norman Powell still being out also helps. 
10Donovan Mitchell UT2Mitchell is going to have to find a way to get to the hoop a bit more even when Mike Conley is on the floor with him. When Conley is running the offense, Mitchell is often relegated to the arc. 
11Andrew Wiggins GSW2Wiggins will take even more shots than he did in Minnesota. He'll be the top scoring option until (if) Stephen Curry returns. He'll also help produce boards and dimes. 
12Buddy Hield SAC2Fresh off of winning the Three-Point Shootout, we'll see if that gives Hield extra momentum. Hield's shots are safe for now as the Kings are still dealing with injuries in their frontcourt. 
13Shai Gilgeous-Alexander OKC2Gilgeous-Alexander will continue to be the prioritized scorer for the Thunder, but he's been especially helpful grabbing boards this season and he'll continue help with steals as well. 
14CJ McCollum POR2McCollum will become the Blazers top scoring option until Damian Lillard is ready to return to action. Expect McCollum to run the point a bit more over the next few weeks. 
15Jaylen Brown BOS2INJ: Brown missed his last game with a Calf injury and the Celtics don't play again until Friday and we'll need to see if he can practice in full prior to the game.
16Terry Rozier CHA2Rozier will continue to be the second scoring option and he'll get a lot of time to run the point. He and Graham will toggle between being on and off the ball. Expect points and dimes. 
17Collin Sexton CLE2Expect Sexton to see more shots if Kevin Love has to sit again. Andre Drummond being on the team could impact everyones time with the ball. Hopefully J.B. Bickerstaff continues to feed Sexton. 
18Kevin Huerter ATL2Huerter should be able to take the court for the Hawks first game of the week on Thursday. He had been a bit ill so keep that in mind and watch his status. He should be the Hawks third option. 
19Joe Harris BKN2No Irving creates openess in the Nets lineup and Harris is a strong defender and he'll get time both at SG and SF. He's a reliable long-range shooter and will attack the rim & burn teams from the FT line.
20Marcus Smart BOS2Smart has been excellent at filling in when needed and there's a chance he'll have a bigger role for his first game of the week if Brown needs to sit again. 


RANKNAMETeam# GamesAnalysis
1LeBron James LAL2For some reason, not as much focus has been on James this season, but he's had an MVP caliber season and spends a lot of time running the point and he's made the Lakers into a top team. 
2Brandon Ingram NO2Ingram is fully healthy and the Pelicans will look to make a Playoff push and his minutes shouldn't be limited for the week and he'll remain the top prioritized scorer. 
3Kawhi Leonard LAC1Leonard dominates when on the court and he'll get even more love in his one game this week if Paul George sits again. As strange as it looks that Leonard is this high up this week, he's a top producer.
4Gordon Hayward BOS2Hayward has been a monster on the glass lately and all I can say is FINALLY! The guy stayed at the arc way too much earlier this year and he's been more productive now that he plays in the paint.
5Tobias Harris PHI2I wish Harris would play in the paint a bit more because he's a slasher, but with the Sixers at full-strength, expect him to be taking more shots from the arc and grabbing boards on defense.
6Kelly Oubre Jr.PHX2Oubre's shots are safe and he's the team's best defender and he'll help grab long boards and steals. On the offensive end, he'll take shots from the arc but won't shy away from driving.
7T.J. Warren IND2Just like with Brogdon, with the Pacers at full strength, don't be surprised to see Warren lose shots as Oladipo gets more involved in the Pacers rotation. He's safe for this week at least. 
8Taurean Prince BKN2Prince's defense at the elbow will keep him in games more, but if his shot isn't falling, the Nets will take the ball out of his hands. His minutes are safe. He needs to attack the rim more.
9Jae Crowder MIA2Crowder will likely be moved to PF starting next week because that's where he has been filling in for the injured Meyers Leonard . The Heat have a crowded mid-court.
10Josh Hart NO2Hart has been playing better but that's probably a result of Ingram being hurt and now that he's back in full force, we'll have to see if it caps Hart's production a bit down the stretch. 
11Bogdan Bogdanovic SAC2Bogdanovic's shots are safe for now, but we have to start focusing on Jabari Parker being involved because he's very shot-happy and someone in the rotation will likely lose shots in a few weeks.
12Miles Bridges CHA2All of a sudden, Bridges has been playing better, especially on the offensive end. He has taken shots away from PJ Washington and he's getting to the hoop a bit more rather than relying on jumpers.
13Joe Ingles UT2Minutes aren't as concerning for Ingles as shots are. We can rely on him more for assists and steals than scoring. The Jazz have a lot of offensive weapons, and Ingles earns his PT for his defense. 
14Harrison Barnes SAC2Barnes will toggle between SF and PF and until Richaun Holmes comes back, expect Barnes to get more shots. He's scored 23-plus points and grabbed 7 boards in 2 of his last 3 games. 
15Tim Hardaway Jr.DAL2Hardaway will continue being the Mavs third scoring option, but it's a distant third to Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis as they'll handle most of the offense. Hardaway can play multiple positions. 
16Troy Brown Jr.  WSH2Even though the Wizards are healthier now, Brown is one of the most familiar players with the offense and his playing time is safe for the rest of the way and he'll score in double figures consistently.
17Duncan Robinson MIA2Robinson will benefit with Herro being out of the lineup. We don't know when we'll see Herro again and Robinson will be used as a bailout shooter from the arc. He plays 29 minutes per game. 
18Danuel House Jr. HOU2House will see more shots to start the week off for the Rockets if Eric Gordon needs to sit. He's been playing 30 minutes per game and he'll produce more with the second unit on the floor. 
19OG Anunoby  TOR2Anunoby's minutes are safe because of the Powell injury and he'll keep his rotation spot because of his defense. On offense, it's a bit more of a rocky road as he's still developing his offensive game. 
20Will Barton DEN2INJ: The All-Star break came at a perfect time for Barton. He is praciticing a little and there's a chance he can suit up for Friday's game, but must get in a full practice today.


RANKNAMETeam# GamesAnalysis
1Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL2The Greek Freak is fully healthy and he shouldn't be limited at all unless the Bucks are beating up a team to the point where he gets pulled to conserve his health.
2Anthony Davis LAL2Davis remains the second option as the Lakers look to finish the job and end the season as the Western Conferences top team and he continues to stay healthy for the most part. 
3John Collins ATL2Collins will be the second scorer for the Hawks for the rest of the way and because Capela is still injured, he'll be set up a lot more in the post until he returns to action. 
4Pascal Siakam TOR2Siakam has been the prioritized scorer for the Raptors and he's scored 23.5 points per game and he's an incredible driver and a very strong rebounder and averages nearly a steal and block per game.
5Jayson Tatum BOS2Tatum will see more shots and time with the ball if Brown sits and he doesn't have a lot of competition at the position and we should expect him to continue helping out with scoring and rebounding.
6Kevin Love CLE2INJ: Love missed his last game because ohis Achilles is sore and his status for the Cavs first game of the week on Friday is currently undetermined. They have a back to back and that could cost him.
7Kristaps Porzingis DAL2With Doncic fully healthy, Porzingis returns to being the second option for the Mavs, but he'll still take a lot of shots from the arc and he'll help a ton with boards and blocks. 
8LaMarcus Aldridge SAS2Aldridge will return to being secondary to DeRozan now that he's back in the lineup, but he'll continue to get a lot of plays called for him in the post because the Spurs lack depth.
9Zion Williamson NO2Williamson will be given a full workload of minutes and he continues to thrive in the Pelicans offense and he's been attacking the rim with force and pulling down a good amount of boards. 
10Danilo Gallinari OKC2Gallinari doesn’t have depth behind him and that will keep his minutes high. It would be much better for fantasy owners if he left the arc a bit more and played in the paint so he can grab more boards.
11Serge Ibaka TOR2Ibaka has been getting more minutes because of Marc Gasol 's injury, but if Gasol returns, unless he's restricted, Ibaka will move back to the bench. He'll still be in the rotation but will get fewer shots.
12Bojan Bogdanovic UT2Bogdanovic is an excellent scorer and his minutes will always be safe because the Jazz lack depth up front, but we often get just consistent scoring from him. His rebounding numbers are up and down.
13Jaren Jackson Jr. MEM2Speaking of players who don’t always help when it comes to rebounding, Jackson at least makes up for it by blocking 1.7 shots per game while scoring 17.1 points per game. 
14Al Horford PHI2It's been a very different type of season for Horford as his role remains undefined. He gets the minutes, but he can't always be relied on for scoring. He's been doing just enough with boards & blocks.
15Draymond Green GSW2Don't expect too much scoring help from Green even with the Warriors being bare overall when it comes to depth. Depend on him more for boards, dimes and steals. 
16Nemanja Bjelica SAC2Bjelica continues to benefit from Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley III being out, but with Parker now on the squad, hopefully he doesn't take away shots from Bjelica. Parker plays ZERO defense. 
17Robert Covington HOU2Covington will continue being the third scoring option for the Rockets and he'll get time at PF and even Center as they lack frontcourt depth. He'll still take a lot of shots from the arc. 
18Myles Turner IND2Even though it's been a very up and down season for Turner, he's scored in double figures in his last three games and he's blocked shots in four of his last five contests as well.
19Carmelo Anthony POR2Anthony should benefit with Lillard being out by seeing more shots. Opposing defenses will collapse on McCollum and Anthony should be fed more as a result. He'll help a bit with boards as well.
20Paul George LAC1INJ: George injured his Hamstring the day before the All-Star break and it's hard to determine if George will have to sit for the Clippers one game of the week on Saturday. 


RANKNAMETeam# GamesAnalysis
1Andre Drummond CLE2So far, new team, same story, Drummond is a double-double machine and he should remain the league's top rebounder even on a different team. He's also blocked shots in his last two games. 
2Nikola Jokic DEN2Jokic continues to play better and he's seen higher scoring games in the last month and if Barton needs to sit again, he'll have some more time to bring up the ball and compile assists.
3Joel Embiid PHI2Even though the Sixers problems seem to center around Embiid, it hasn't impacted him negatively from a fantasy perspective and he should be able to dominate points and boards and help block shots.
4Domantas Sabonis IND2Sabonis has been one of the most dominant Center's in the league and he controls the paint better than most and he could even step outside and hit three-pointers if needed. 
5Hassan Whiteside POR2Whiteside remains the only game in town when it comes to the Blazers low-post options and naturally, he'll move up the priority chart when it comes to plays called for him with Lillard out. 
6Rudy Gobert UT2Gobert is another Center with hardly any competition for minutes behind him and he's been dominant with inside scoring, rebounding and he's been blocking nearly two shots per game.
7Deandre Ayton PHX2INJ: Ayton is practicing and he should be ready to return to the court for the Suns first game of the week on Friday. He's been dealing with an injured Ankle.
8Bam Adebayo MIA2It's no surprise that Adebayo won the Skills Challenge during the All-Star break because he is a very good ball-handler and he'll also contribute assists along with points and boards consistently. 
9Jonas Valanciunas MEM2Hopefully, the Grizzlies continue to give Valanciunas more minutes and down the stretch he plays at least 30 minutes per game. The Grizzlies did trade for more depth that hopefully doesn't impact him.
10Nikola Vucevic ORL1Vucevic would be much higher in these rankings, but he's sitting with the short slate this week along with the Knicks and Clippers. He continues to be the Magic's top option. 
11Jarrett Allen BKN2Allen is more productive when Irving is off the floor and it's looking like that will be the case for at least the next few weeks and he doesn't need a ton of minutes to put up points and boards. 
12Steven Adams OKC2Adams has been playing better lately and he looks to be moving around quicker which proves that he's healthier. He's grabbed double-digit boards in his last three games. 
13Davis Bertans WSH2Bertans will see playing time even when the Wizards are at full strength. We don't know if Thomas Bryant will be ready to return Friday. Bertans has been one of the best three-point shooters this year.
14Derrick Favors NO2The Pelicans have a lot of mouths to feed when it comes to scoring and even though Williamson will cap Favors production a bit, he'll still help with boards and blocks and should play at least 20 mpg.
15Tristan Thompson CLE2Thompson is relegated to the bench now that Drummond is on the team. Thompson had a strong game heading into the break, but Kevin Love was out. His fantasy future looks very bleak. 
16Thomas Bryant WSH2INJ: Bryant has been battling a Foot injury and the pain hadn't gone away prior to the All-Star Break. There's a chance he could return for the Wizards first game of the week on Friday
17Brook Lopez MIL2Lopez will see his usage drop off a bit with Antetokounmpo back in the lineup, but he's scored 10.6 points per game this year & even though he struggles to grab boards, he blocks 2.6 shots per game.
18DeAndre Jordan BKN2Jordan will remain part of the Nets rotation backing up Allen for the rest of the way. He's grabbed double-digit boards and blocked shots in his last three games. He won't always help with scoring. 
19Cody Zeller CHA2Zeller will return to action on Thursday after missing his last game and he's grabbed at least eight rebounds in his last two games and he's a better defender than Willy Hernangomez .
20Marc Gasol TOR2INJ: Gasol missed his last eight games with a sore Hamstring, but there's a chance that he can make it back to the court for Friday's game when the Raptors take on the Suns.
