RJ Barrett totaled 15 points (5-12 FG, 1-6 3PT, 4-6 FT), one rebound, and two assists in the Knicks’ 118-112 win over the Pistons.

Fantasy Impact:

Barrett scored 15.0 points in the Knicks’ win over the Pistons, putting together another solid scoring performance with his second consecutive double-digit effort. Although his averages are down in scoring, rebounds, and assists compared to last season’s, this decrease could be due to the streaky nature of his game and not indicative of his long-term value. Still, Barrett demonstrates value as a viable points contributor with some upside across other performance categories. His overall caliber of play makes him a solid must-roster fantasy asset in most season-long leagues. However, given his somewhat match-up-sensitive production, he may be leveraged primarily as a pragmatic asset deployed on a case-by-case basis. Barrett has a usage rate of 26.8 percent, a plus-minus of 6.0, and is averaging 29.5 minutes, 18.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game while shooting 42.9 percent from the floor and 40.9 percent from beyond the arc.
