Notes 
 Arguably one of the best scorers and playmakers in this year's draft class, Green should start for the Rockets right away and play a featured role on offense. It's unclear how valuable he can be for fantasy managers outside his gaudy scoring totals.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Availability will be a concern, as Barton has appeared in just 157 games over the last three seasons. When healthy, he's been a useful fantasy option who should be taken near the back of the top-150.
