Buddy Hield finished the 2018-19 season as fantasy's No. 38 overall fantasy play.
The running mate of De'Aaron Fox this season, he was one of the main reasons why the Kings were always on the thick of the playoff race for much of the year. The obvious improvements he showed us across all categories led to his ranking as a fourth-round talent. This season, he averaged 20.7 points on 45.8 percent shooting, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.7 steals and 3.4 3-pointers.

Buddy Hield led the Kings in their 117-104 win over the Cavs with 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, three steals, a block and five 3-pointers on Thursday.
Hield has been an elite shooter all season and the only knock was that he was averaging only 0.5 steals before the ASB. Since then, he's averaged 1.1 swipes which has him as the No. 33 player in 9-cat leagues during that stretch. If he can put together an entire season of consistent defense, we're looking at an early-round fantasy player.

Buddy Hield had a nice overall game with 20 points (8-of-16 FGs), seven rebounds, five assists, four threes and a block in 33 minutes on Tuesday night.
Hield has provided fourth-round fantasy value this season, which has been a nice surprise. He's locked in as a part of the Kings' promising young core.

Buddy Hield led the Kings to an impressive 113-106 win in San Antonio on Sunday with a team-high 26 points, four triples, five boards, three assists and a steal.
Hield has rounded into form after needing a season of getting comfortable in Sacramento. Buddy Buckets will finish the year as a top-50 asset and he'll have every opportunity to push for a top-35 valuation next season.

Buddy Hield ended Saturday's loss to the Rockets with 21 points, three rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers on 8-of-18 from the field.
It's been an incredible season for Hield who has posted significant improvements this year in every major statistical category. With the Kings’ playoff hopes appearing to be slimmer by the day, they’ll be playing out this season, most likely looking for lineup combinations that may work heading into next year and developing their youth at the same time.

Buddy Hield finished Sunday's loss to the Lakers with 18 points, six rebounds, three assists and five 3-pointers on 6-of-21 from the field.
A big chunk of Hield's fantasy value comes from his ability to shoot efficiently (.462 on the season), at least relative to most of his positional peers, but he just didn't have it tonight. The Kings' playoff hopes took a major blow in this one and they might opt to give him a night off once they're officially eliminated given the immense role he's played all season, but until that happens Hield is a set-and-forget player.

Buddy Hield became the Kings' franchise record-holder for single-season threes in Saturday's 112-103 win over the Suns, knocking down seven longballs on his way to 25 points.
Hield now has 243 triples on the season and surpassed Peja Stojakovic's old mark of 240 tonight. The third-year guard continues his meteoric rise and rounded out his line with seven rebounds, a steal and a block on 9-of-20 from the field. The Kings have quietly assembled one of the most talented and promising backcourts in the NBA, though fantasy owners are well aware of Hield's exploits by now.

Buddy Hield bounced back on Thursday with 29 points on 10-of-21 shooting to go with two rebounds, four assists, two steals and seven 3-pointers in Thursday's 116-100 win over the Mavs.
Hield was awful in Tuesday's meltdown loss to the Nets, but he came out the gates firing tonight. There was no reason to expect him to not have a huge game, considering how strong of a shooter he is. The uptick in steals has also been a welcome sight and it's something we're hoping sticks until the end of the year.
