F - NYK
The Knicks are focused on building around SF RJ Barrett and reportedly looking for players to complement the rookie.
“If you want to complement Barrett, that’s where I’d go, one opposing front office member said. Adding (a guard and big man who can shoot the perimeter), you space the floor and make things easier for him. The floor was so crowded for him this year.” The Knicks have an obvious need of shooters to spread the court as the team shot 33.7 percent from downtown this season. New York will focus on bringing in players to compliment Barrett, which should only increase in fantasy value. Barrett is averaging 14.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.1 triples across 56 games this year.
RJ Barrett totaled 26 points (9-14 FG, 2-5 3PT, 6-6 FT) five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block across 39 minutes in Wednesday’s 136-131 win over the Hawks.
Barrett has now scored 26 points or more in two of his last six contests. He has played well in March, averaging 18.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.5 triples across six games in March. Barrett is much better fantasy option in point leagues due to his pedestrian shooting percentages. With his recent stretch, Barrett is a solid option in all league formats. He will look to keep up his strong play once the NBA resumes play.
RJ Barrett collected 16 points (5-15 FG, 1-5 3PT, 5-7 FT), six rebounds, one assist and four steals across 30 minutes in the Knicks' 122-115 loss to the Washington Wizards on Tuesday.
Barrett continues to struggle with his efficiency, making him untrustworthy in nine-category leagues. He has major upside, but we will have to wait till next year to see if he can take that next step forward. For now, he is only a hold in dynasty leagues.
RJ Barrett registered 17 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3PT, 6-6 FT) four rebounds, three assists, one steal and four turnovers across 29 minutes in Friday's 126-103 loss to the Thunder.
Barrett has now scored double figures in five consecutive games, while shooting an efficient 52 percent (34-of-65) from the field. He has been on a roll as of late, averaging 18.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.6 triples during that span. Barrett is a better option in points leagues, but should be owned in all formats. The Knicks next scheduled game is Sunday, home against the Pistons.
RJ Barrett produced 14 points (5-12 FG, 1-2 3PT, 3-3 FT) five assists, four rebounds, one steal and two turnovers across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 112-104 loss to the Jazz.
Barrett has played well recently, averaging 18.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 0.5 steals and 1.8 triples while shooting 54 percent in his last four games. He is a better option in points leagues, but has contributed enough across the board to be owned in standard rotisserie formats. Barrett will look to keep things rolling in Friday's tilt against the Thunder.
