RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Barnes is on this list because of his defense and his three-point shooting. He made 1.4 threes per game last season on 34 percent shooting from downtown, which were both just shy of career bests. At 33 years old, it's impressive that Barnes is still thought of as a hustle guy, but it's a reputation he's earned. He averaged one steal and 0.8 blocks in 26 minutes per game, while also scoring a career-high 10.3 points per contest. Unfortunately, playing time could be tougher to come by in 2013-14, as the Clippers brought in Jared Dudley, who is basically Barnes, version 2.0. Los Angeles also has significant depth at shooting guard, meaning it will be rare that the team goes big and Dudley slides over to the two. His production last season warrants owners in deeper leagues taking notice of him, but in shallower formats, there are better options with more upside.

2012-13

Barnes was the last player the Clippers signed this offseason, but it is hard to see where his minutes might come from in 2011-12. Barnes averaged 22.9 minutes per game last season, but he will start the year playing behind both Grant Hill and Caron Butler at small forward – and that doesn’t even account for potential minutes for Lamar Odom at the three. The means unless there are some injuries, which is supremely possible for both Hill and Butler, Barnes might struggle to play as much as he did last season.

2011-12

A jack-of-all-trades, Barnes will do the dirty work for the Lakers, but he offers little upside. Last year he averaged 6.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 19.2 minutes per game. Those numbers should increase slightly, because he will see a few more minutes in Odom's absence and with World Peace on a steep decline. It's possible that he could offer value in deep leagues.

2010-11

Barnes is one of those players who is much more valuable to a real team than a fantasy team. From a statistical perspective, he doesn’t do anything spectacular or even noteworthy, but coaches across the league rave about Barnes’ defensive skill, toughness, and intangible assets. But until they can formulate a fantasy statistic for “fearlessness,” owners should stay away from Barnes.

2009-10

The Magic intended to add more shooters to the roster this summer, so Barnes should be a welcome addition to team. Barnes started 40 games for Phoenix last year and had the best season of his career, but it's very unlikely that he'll see as much playing time as he did last season. Barnes will be a key player off the bench for the Magic, but don't expect him to match last season's level of production.

2008-09

For the last several seasons, Barnes has been one of those guys that has produced considerable numbers when given the opportunity… but who, for reasons unclear to most observers… can’t seem to hang on to a steady job. As such, he’d be an outstanding candidate to turn up in the Suns rotation and suddenly blow up – if Mike D’Antoni were still running the show. With Terry Porter in charge, we’re less optimistic about the Suns taking marginal players and making them into fantasy superstars overnight. That said, Barnes is pretty well positioned to carve out an important role, particularly if Grant Hill is sidelined for any length of time.

2007-08

Barnes went from being the last player to make the team last year to a legitimate fantasy contributor by the end of November. He averaged 13.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.5 3’s per game in December en route to averaging a career-best 9.8 points per game and 23.5 minutes per game for the season. Barnes took advantage of injuries last year but don’t expect similar production this year as he will be fighting for back-up small forward minutes with Mickael Pietrus.

2005-06

Barnes averaged 4.1 ppg and 16.6 mpg last season, but could be replaced at any time. His roster spot may be in jeopardy if he doesn't impress in training camp.

2004-05

Barnes needs to have a consistent showing in camp to solidfy his standing with the organization. If he makes the team, he'll likely contribute off the bench, which will limit his fantasy value.
