RJ Barrett: Knicks focused on building around the rookie

The Knicks are focused on building around SF RJ Barrett and reportedly looking for players to complement the rookie.

Fantasy Impact

“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 hangs 26 on the Hawks in Wednesday’s win

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.

Fantasy Impact

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 records four steals on Tuesday

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.

Fantasy Impact

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 hangs 17 on the Thunder in Friday's loss

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.

Fantasy Impact

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 pours in 14 points in Wednesday's loss to Utah

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.

Fantasy Impact

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.
