Fantasy Planner Week 16: Green Light the Clippers

Week 16 Schedule Analysis

The LA Clippers are the only team with three games this week.

The Suns, Grizzlies, Knicks, Warriors, and Magic play only one game in this abbreviated week.

All twenty-four other teams play two games.

Nine teams have only home games: Magic, Knicks, Bucks, Grizzlies, Lakers, Pacers, Pistons, Mavericks, and Cavaliers

Nine teams play only road games: Wizards, Spurs, Kings, Blazers, Suns, Rockets, Warriors, Nuggets, and Hawks

The Raptors will be pushing it on offense this week. On Tuesday, they have the Nuggets at home and the next day, Knicks on the road. I can see some big fantasy numbers from players like Kyle Lowry, Andrea Bargnani, and DeMar DeRozan this week.

Boston has been playing well since Rondo went out, as Kevin Garnett has been putting up good numbers.

Clippers finish the week “on the road” against Lakers. That could be labeled a home game and if it is, the Clippers are 20-5 at home.

Jrue Holiday may have tough week as he’s matched-up against Chris Paul and Brandon Jennings. Both are great defensive point guards who combine for 4.4 steals per game.
