Protein Intake

Quick question. I am 260 and I have a body fat percentage of 18%. Does that mean that I have 46.8 pounds of fat? If so then i have 213 pounds of Lean Muscle. When taking my protein do i intake the amount of my Lean body weight which is 213 or my regular weight of 260?

So take the grams for 260? You play for Sacred Heart?

I always go by total bodyweight, so in my eyes yeah.
