Devin Booker went 9-for-18 from the field and 8-for-8 at the line for 27 points with three rebounds, five assists, one triple and seven turnovers before fouling out in Friday's loss to the Thunder.
Booker has been putting up gaudy lines lately and his seven turnovers tonight aside, his line was good for fringe early-round value. Booker is a hot asset right now, with this still-prolific effort one of his dips. No worries here.

Devin Booker was great on Tuesday in a blowout win over the Mavs, putting up 32 points on 12-of-20 shooting, six rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.
Booker continues to shoot the lights out and is a top-5 player for the past month. He's fantasy's best free throw shooter over that period after factoring in his 9.8 attempts per game. It'll be tough for him to keep up the efficiency, but Booker could easily bring back some more threes and/or finally increase his steals to stay in the top-20 even with a drop in percentages.

Facing the Grizzlies on Sunday, Devin Booker continued his scorching hot play in defeat, going for 36 points (11-of-24 FG, 9-of-10 FT), five 3-pointers, five assists and one block.
The broader line was a bit thin, but it is tough to complain about Booker's ability to wrack up infinite amounts of points on strong shooting. The sky is the limit assuming the Suns can hang around the playoff race, although it would be quite the feat to see Booker shoot over 50 percent from the field for an entire season. On the other hand, Ricky Rubio struggled in this game, with five points (1-of-10 FG), five rebounds, three assists and three steals. At least Rubio still delivered those steals and a 3-pointer to save this performance from being a total disaster.

Devin Booker had a nice night in Friday's 103-99 win over the Spurs, scoring 35 points (11-for-20 shooting), 10 assists, four rebounds, three triples and ten made free throws.
The insane efficiency continued for Booker, who seems locked in as a top-25 asset this season. This is the healthiest he's been in a while so fantasy managers need to enjoy this production and make the most of it.

Devin Booker dropped 16 points on 5-of-12 shooting in Wednesday's 112-87 loss to the Pacers, only adding an additional two rebounds, three assists and a steal to his name.
Booker, much like the rest of the Suns, would like to put this game behind them and look ahead to their next game. As an interesting note, his backcourt partner, Ricky Rubio, finished with the same number of rebounds, assists and steals but only seven points.

Devin Booker led the Suns in their 118-120 loss to the Spurs on Monday, scoring a game-high 37 points to go with seven rebounds, five assists and four triples.
Booker went 13-for-23 from the floor, 4-for-6 from deep and 7-for-7 at the line in another hyper efficient night shooting the ball. He missed a go-ahead three-point attempt at the buzzer, but he's been a fantasy monster this season thanks to his new found efficiency.

Devin Booker was fabulous in this one, finishing just one assist shy of a triple-double in Saturday's 123-119 win over the Celtics, chipping in 39 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and finishing 14-of-15 from the charity stripe.
Booker ruined the Celtics' Marcus Smarts' career-night, dropping 39 points on the road and finishing just shy of a triple-double. Everyone knows that Booker can score but the ball handling has steadily improved and he is averaging over six assists a game. He continues to be a top-30 fantasy option and games like these may push him into top-20 consideration.
January 16, 2020, 10:03 pmDevin BookerSG, Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker led the Suns with 29 points on 9-of-17 shooting to go with four rebounds and four assists.
The four turnovers put a damper on an otherwise effective line from Booker, who has been most impressive with his high percentages so far this season. He's one of the best pure scorers in the NBA and he'll be a top-30 option as long as he can keep scoring without losing his efficiency.

Devin Booker was tossed late in Tuesday's game after picking up his second technical foul, but not before lighting up the Hawks for 39 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
Booker feasted on a bad Hawks defense, going 12-of-23 from the field and a perfect 13-for-13 at the charity stripe. The Suns have been in a freefall but Booker has been able to deliver elite fantasy value — it's a tale as old as time.

Devin Booker did not play well against the Hornets on Sunday as he had 12 points and seven turnovers on 3-of-12 shooting.
Booker was able to dish out nine dimes and grab four boards, but this was one of his worst performances of the season. However, he is granted some leniency as he is a top-20 value over the last month and could finish around that range for the season. Expect him to bounce back and return to early-round form next game.

Devin Booker led the Suns in scoring in Friday's 98-94 win, finishing with 24 points (7-for-15 shooting), five assists, four triples, three rebounds and three steals.
Booker also went a perfect 6-for-6 from the free throw line and logged a hefty 37 minutes in the contest. When Booker is healthy he is one of the very best in fantasy so continue deploying him as a top-30 asset as long as he is playing.

Devin Booker shot 12-of-21 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line on Tuesday in a loss to the Kings, putting up a game-high 34 points with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.
It's rare to see a high-volume shooting guard hit more than half of his shots for the season, and this improvement in Booker's game is the main cause of his jump into the top-20/30 (8-cat/9-cat). Ricky Rubio had a typical line tonight with eight points, five rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one triple in 35 minutes.

Devin Booker dropped 40 points on 13-of-20 shooting in a 121-114 loss to the Grizzlies on Sunday.
Booker made 13 of his 14 attempts from the stripe and knocked down one triple. Booker is averaging 30 points over his last six contests with under one 3-pointer per game, so he is definitely becoming a more versatile scorer. He is locked in at early-round value as he continues to put up big numbers.

Devin Booker paced the Suns in a 120-112 win over the Knicks on Friday, going for 38 points on 14-of-27 from the field while adding three rebounds, seven assists and two 3-pointers.
Booker has been an elite option over the last week or so and even as the Suns get healthy and spread the usage around a little bit more, there's nothing besides injuries keeping Booker from returning early-round value.

Devin Booker shot 11-of-23 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line for a game-high 32 points on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, seven assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and six turnovers.
Booker has the fifth-best player in 8-cat and a 14th in 9-cat over the last week. Deandre Ayton is now healthy, which should ease the pressure on Booker to carry the scoring load, but don't expect the Suns fireball to slow down any time soon.
