Middleton struggled with his shot in the contest and finished with his lowest scoring total since Dec. 30. However, he still found ways to contribute as a passer and a rebounder. The veteran forward's growth as a distributor is evidenced by his career-best 5.5 assists per game this season, and his overall counting stats include a host of other strong marks, including 20.2 points, 6.1 boards and 2.2 three-pointers. Meanwhile, Middleton's 48.1 field-goal percentage and 89.0 percent accuracy from the charity stripe make him among fantasy's most dependable forwards.

Middleton was one of several Bucks regulars who got the night off Friday against Charlotte, but he didn't miss a beat and paced the Bucks in scoring while ending as the second-best contributor in both rebounds and assists. Middleton should work as Milwaukee's go-to player on offense while Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) remains sidelined, but even if he returns in the coming days, Middleton should remain a valuable fantasy asset in all formats due to his sizable role on offense and his ability to contribute across the board on any given night.

Middleton took over as the Bucks' No. 1 scorer with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) taking on a secondary role after a game out of the lineup, and he posted his eighth double-double of the season in the process.

The 29-year-old had his second inefficient game in a row, but it's hard to notice when he's contributing elite numbers everywhere else.
