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.

Scores 19 points in Friday's loss

October 18, 2019
Barrett collected 19 points (9-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, and one block in 36 minutes during Friday's 117-116 loss to the Pelicans.
ANALYSIS
Barrett was extremely efficient offensively while turning in a very well-rounded stat line. It's perhaps unwise to draw too many conclusions from preseason, but it's at least possible that even as a rookie Barrett will be the second option behind Julius Randle.
