Nov. 24 8:20 PM PT9:20 PM MT10:20 PM CT11:20 PM ET4:20 GMT12:20 9:20 PM MST11:20 PM EST8:20 UAE05:2023:20 ET10:20 PM CTNaN:� - Will Barton scored nine points Friday, going 4 of 8 from the field, as the Denver Nuggets defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 104-92.

Nov. 21 7:55 AM PT8:55 AM MT9:55 AM CT10:55 AM ET15:55 GMT23:55 8:55 AM MST10:55 AM EST19:55 UAE16:5510:55 ET9:55 AM CTNaN:� - Will Barton scored 25 points Monday on 9-of-15 shooting as the Denver Nuggets defeated the Sacramento Kings 114-98.

Analysis: Barton took advantage of getting a start in place of the injured Wilson Chandler, who is expected to return Wednesday. Barton's three starts this season include his two highest-scoring performances - he had 26 on Nov. 11 versus Orlando. He can be worth using in fantasy even coming off the bench because of his scoring, 3-point and rebounding contributions.
Nov. 19 8:14 PM PT9:14 PM MT10:14 PM CT11:14 PM ET4:14 GMT12:14 9:14 PM MST11:14 PM EST8:14 UAE05:1423:14 ET10:14 PM CTNaN:� - Will Barton scored 12 points Sunday, going 5 of 11 from the field, as the Denver Nuggets fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 127-109.

Barton pulled down nine rebounds and dished out five assists, tallying a plus-minus of +18 in his 37:53 of playing time. He added one block and one steal. Barton went 4 of 6 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Barton got his first start of 2017-18 with Gary Harris nursing a shoulder injury and responded with his highest scoring effort of the season. Even if he goes back to the bench next time out, the versatile guard should continue to make a quality fantasy contribution. He's averaging 19.3 points on 51 percent shooting during a four-game run in which he's added 6.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists.
Nov. 10 10:12 PM PT11:12 PM MT12:12 AM CT1:12 AM ET6:12 GMT14:12 11:12 PM MST1:12 AM EST10:12 UAE07:121:12 ET12:12 AM CTNaN:� - Will Barton scored 13 points Thursday on 3-of-9 shooting as the Denver Nuggets topped the Oklahoma City Thunder 102-94.

Nov. 7 8:25 PM PT9:25 PM MT10:25 PM CT11:25 PM ET4:25 GMT12:25 9:25 PM MST11:25 PM EST8:25 UAE05:2523:25 ET10:25 PM CTNaN:� - Will Barton scored 17 points Tuesday, going 7 of 15 from the field, as the Denver Nuggets defeated the Brooklyn Nets 112-104. Barton pulled down eight rebounds and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of -10 in his 31:07 on the floor. He added two blocks and one steal. Barton went 2 of 6 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Barton followed up Saturday's 21-point, eight-rebound, five-assist performance against Golden State with another strong all-around effort on this night. With the key reserve starting to receive more time at point guard due to Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay's inconsistent play, his fantasy arrow is definitely pointing up.
Nov. 5 10:41 PM PT11:41 PM MT12:41 AM CT1:41 AM ET6:41 GMT14:41 11:41 PM MST1:41 AM EST10:41 UAE07:411:41 ET12:41 AM CTNaN:� - Will Barton scored 21 points Saturday, going 7 of 13 from the field, as the Denver Nuggets fell to the Golden State Warriors 127-108.

Analysis: Averaging just 10.5 points over his previous four games, Barton came through with his highest scoring total since dropping 23 on Utah in the season opener. Denver's sixth man can be a frustrating fantasy player to own due to his hot-and-cold tendencies, but he is 10 for 20 from 3-point range over his last five games and is averaging a respectable 5.3 rebounds in his past four.

Analysis: Barton is off to a great start, as he's tallied 38 points and 11 rebounds while going 6 of 12 from 3-point range over the first two games. The sixth man should continue to see a lot of minutes in his role, which gives him a chance to sustain some worthy fantasy numbers.
Oct. 18 8:13 PM PT9:13 PM MT10:13 PM CT11:13 PM ET3:13 GMT11:13 8:13 PM MST10:13 PM EST7:13 UAE (+1)05:1323:13 ET10:13 PM CTNaN:� - Will Barton scored 23 points Wednesday, going 8 of 14 from the field, as the Denver Nuggets lost to the Utah Jazz 106-96.

Analysis: Barton suffered a scary injury in practice Monday, getting carried off the court. But apparently it's nothing too serious, and he doesn't expect to have his minutes limited Wednesday.
