Devin Booker totaled 27 points (8-21 FG, 1-8 3PT, 10-10 FT), two rebounds, six assists, and three steals in the Suns’ 118-105 win over the Bucks on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact:

Booker showed no signs of having “butterflies” in his NBA Finals debut win over the Bucks, as he was far from shy about putting up a 27.0-point scoring effort to go along with an impressive three steals to extend his streak to five games with having at least one. Not saying that he should have or that he would have, but it certainly made a statement to see how ready and aggressive he was while on the floor, as evident by his several trips to the charity stripe. Even though Booker may not be the top fantasy producer on the floor in this series, his talent could still lead to him being one of the most impactful on the floor outside of Chris Paul and Giannis Antetokounmpo. He is good for at least one ridiculous 55.0 – 70.0 fantasy point performance, but it may not be as easy to tell when or if that will occur when you most need it. Outside of waiting for that "sky" game, he should be good enough to be within the top five fantasy plays each night, and if his price-point doesn’t jump to unreasonable heights, he could be one of the best cost-efficient bets with one of if not the highest potential upside.
