Will Barton turned in a fantastic game in Saturday’s 125-107 victory over the Magic, scoring 26 points on 8-of-12 shooting to go with four 3-pointers, nine rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and only one turnover in 38 minutes.
Predictably, Barton turned in a huge fantasy night with Gary Harris out of commission. It was a complete and total gem for both 8- and 9-cat leagues, and it just shows the upside that Will The Thrill possesses and the type of production he’s capable of pumping out if he ever picked up big minutes on the regular. Even in his sixth man role, Barton has top-100 upside and is a surefire late-round asset. His fantasy owners got a little extra treat tonight and could be in for more if Harris needs some more time to heal up.
