    Dynasty Risers

    Scottie Barnes (10-20)

    Barnes’ defensive potential finally materialized, with the third-year forward providing both above-average steals and blocks. With marginal improvements in his offensive game across the board, Barnes has announced himself as a full 9-cat fantasy contributor. While high-level questions are still there about his ultimate offensive ceiling, the breadth of production allows Barnes to be one of the great fantasy risers of the season. He should be locked into this sort of fantasy game for quite a while, with the potential to leap even higher.

    Immanuel Quickley (45-70)

    A midseason trade from the Knicks to the Raptors afforded Quickley the opportunity to become the full-time point guard. With increased on-ball responsibilities, we saw Quickley’s assist rate spike without too much of a dip to his efficiency or turnover rate. Paired with increased usage and minutes, Quickley had a strong end to the season. There may be some doubters if Quickley can keep this up for an entire season, but we lean towards this most likely being close to his expected production in the upcoming seasons.
