2019/20 New York Knicks Player Power Rankings – Week 1

As usual the first rankings of the year has a ton of new faces. 9 to be exact. Since the season hasn’t started yet this weeks rankings are mostly based on past performance and expected performance. I’m not weighing preseason very heavily. Randle was a 21 and 9 guy over the course of an 82 game season, a few underwhelming preseasons games aren’t going to drop him.
Rank Player Comments Last weeks Rank
1 Morris, Marcus Morris put up 14 and 6 last season as the 4th or 5th option. I expect he’ll look even better on a team with no clear cut #1 option.
2 Randle, Julius If Randle averages 21 and 9 again for the Knicks does he make the all star team in the east?
3 Robinson, Mitchell We know he can block shots, but can he stay on the court? Foul trouble is a huge concern.
4 Barrett, RJ Barrett is hard to rank right now. He’s supposed to be very good, but his shot looks a little clunky. One thing is for sure, with the Knicks sketchy backcourt he’ll have every opportunity to show what he’s got.
