Will Barton led the Nuggets in scoring on Thursday with 31 points on 11-of-20 shooting with five rebounds, seven assists, a steal, a block and seven triples.
Barton was an inferno from deep, connecting on 7-of-10 from distance and looks to be the biggest beneficiary of Jamal Murray and Gary Harris sitting. He should have been owned and starting in all standard leagues prior to tonight anyways, so expect some increased production in the next few contests.

Will Barton (personal) returned from a one-game absence and scored 18 points (7-of-18 from the floor) with nine rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 38 minutes.
Barton has been a draft-day bargain this season and is posting top-60 value in 9-cat. He's been even better the past two weeks, putting up top-50 value with averages of 16.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists. There is no reason Barton can't keep this up moving forward.

Will Barton is being listed as out against for Wednesday's game against the Mavs due to personal reasons.
With Barton out again, Michael Porter Jr. could be looking at another start and is worth a look as long he is getting minutes in the mid-20s. It is unclear how long Barton will remain out of the lineup.

Will Barton was impressive against the Hawks as he went for 28 points on 12-of-20 shooting, nine rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers and a block in 37 minutes on Monday.
Those that gambled on Barton bouncing back to middle-round production likely got quite a steal. With his reputation for boom and bust games, there's still a chance that the team that rosters him in your league doesn't realize he's playing like a top-50 player.

Will Barton was quiet in 31 minutes in Saturday's loss with just 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting with three rebounds and one assist.
This is a view of Barton's floor for the season, a sight we're not likely going to see again anytime soon. Owners have nothing to worry about at all.

Will Barton was off his game, making 4-of-12 shots from the field for 16 points on Thursday as the Nuggets beat the Pacers 124-116.
Barton may have missed a ton of buckets but made up for it at the line, going 7-for-8 from the stripe. He also added 10 rebounds, five assists, one trey and two steals to complete his still-effective fantasy line. Barton's shot should be back in the next one. No need to worry here.

Gary Harris is a game-time decision for Thursday's contest vs. the Pacers as he continues to deal with a bruised left shin.
Harris will have a lot of friends and family at the game tonight in Indianapolis as he is from there. Unfortunately, he is in jeopardy of missing his third consecutive game. If Harris sits out, expect more production from Will Barton while Malik Beasley and Torrey Craig will see an increase in playing time.

Will Barton went for 19 points (8-of-14 FG), five assists, three rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal vs. the Kings on Sunday.
Barton remains a steady mid-round play as he has slowly carved out a solid role with the Nuggets this season. Continue deploying him with confidence in his bounce-back season. With Paul Millsap missing this game due to a bruised left knee, Jerami Grant had a big night with 18 points, two blocks, two 3-pointers and one steal. Grant has late-round value while Millsap is out, but that should not be something you can rely upon long term.

Malik Beasley chipped in 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting as he saw some extra run since this game was a blowout. Beasley does not see consistent minutes and can be left on waiver wires, while Barton is a steady top-60 option.

Gary Harris logged 31 minutes in Friday's win over the Wolves, adding 11 points (4-for-9 shooting), three steals, two rebounds and two assists.

He has consistently outplayed fellow wing Gary Harris, who put up 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting. Harris is a solid triples and steals specialist for deeper leagues.
