Buddy Hield took over against the Pistons on Saturday, scoring 35 and hitting the game-winner in the final seconds.
Hield has been on fire all season but even more so lately with 13 triples over his last two games. His line on Saturday included nine rebounds, three assists and a block, while shooting 13-of-22 from the field. By all means, continue riding one of the frontrunners for the Most Improved Player award.

Buddy Hield led the team with 24 points and six 3-pointers on Thursday.
Hield was the only starter to play well for the Kings and had his 3-point shot going. He has crept into the top-50 with surprisingly efficient scoring and a boatload of 3-pointers. The lack of peripheral numbers stunt his value, so any shooting slump could be a real killer for Hield going forward.

Buddy Hield scored 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting with two 3-pointers and seven rebounds on Monday.
Hield didn't have any assists, but he was generating plays all night for the Kings, who have blown expectations out of the water this year. The zeroes on defense are starting to become more common than we'd like but it's hard to complain when he's having a career-year on the offensive side of the ball.

Buddy Hield led the Kings with 29 points in Thursday's loss, going 12-of-19 from the field to go with five triples and a steal.
Sacramento looked to be out of gas in the final minutes until Hield knocked down a few big buckets to keep this one close. It's been a real breakout year for him, even if there aren't many people actually talking about it. Hield remains a strong bet for top-50 returns this season.

Buddy Hield scored 27 points on 11-of-23 shooting (including five threes) with five rebounds, four assists and one block over 39 minutes in the Kings' 113-108 overtime loss to the Blazers.
If Hield stays healthy he's going to finish in the back-end of the early rounds as he continues to make his case for Most Improved Player. If Vivek Ranadive had said that Hield was the next Klay Thompson, he might have been on to something.

He's averaging 28.2 points over his last five games and has at least two 3-pointers in every game of December. Hield is absolutely rolling right now and it's only a matter of time before everyone catches onto the fact that he's a top-60 player in fantasy.
