2019 Fantasy Outlook
Barrett will step into the New York spotlight after an impressive freshman campaign at Duke where he averaged 22.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists while shooting 30.8 percent from deep -- a mark feels like it needs to improve given the importance of three-point shooting, especially for guards, in the NBA. Barrett appears to be in line to play a high-volume role as both a scorer and playmaker in his rookie season, though the Knicks do have other, more experienced ball-dependent players on the roster, including Dennis Smith Jr., Elfrid Payton and Julius Randle. Barrett showed off his potential in summer league, averaging 16.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.0 block in four games. However, he shot an extremely underwhelming 37.3 percent from the field, 28.6 percent from three and 65.4 percent from the charity stripe. On one hand, it feels like there's a clear avenue for Barrett to take control of the Knicks' offense and be the face of the franchise as a rookie. On the other hand, the number of other options New York has to score and distribute the basketball means Barrett could get lost in the shuffle if his efficiency, playmaking and/or defense are worse than anticipated.

Drops game-high 27 points
GNew York Knicks
February 14, 2020
Barrett tallied 27 points (11-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, five assists and three steals in 24 minutes during Friday's Team World loss to Team USA in the Rising Stars Challenge.
ANALYSIS
Barrett may have put up his best line of the season in the loss, demonstrating where he currently sits in terms of overall fantasy value. He is currently the 334th ranked player in nine-category formats despite playing more than 30 minutes a night. He offers very little outside of scoring and his percentages are a real concern. The Knicks have absolutely nothing to play for and so it makes sense that Barrett should continue to see big minutes moving forward. He is fine to have on your roster if you can deal with the inefficiencies and simply need a boost in points.
