Notes 
 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.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Beasley is being slept on this season given the injuries and suspensions that cost him all but 35 games last season, but his production can't be ignored. In his brief first full season with the T-Wolves, Beasley averaged career highs in points (19.6), rebounds (4.4), threes (3.5), and assists (2.4). He'll lose some of that volume and usage to Anthony Edwards, D'Angelo Russell, and Karl-Anthony Towns, but Beasley has served his prison sentence and NBA suspension, appears to be healthy, and will likely start for Minnesota. He's probably being undervalued in fantasy drafts right now.
