With just over a month and a half in Yahoo standard leagues (of course, check your own settings) it appears trade season is upon us, at least if what’s been going on in my leagues…

DeAndre' Bembry put together a nice 14-point game on Tuesday vs. the Rockets that included 5-of-9 from the field, 2-of-2 from the charity stripe, nine rebounds, two assists and two threes in 23 minutes.
Bembry continues to be a hit-and-miss steals specialist that can provide a little bit of everything else. If you need a wildcard with upside, he may be your man.

DeAndre' Bembry went 1-for-8 from the field and 1-for-3 at the free throw line on Sunday and finished with three points, four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block in 24 minutes.
Bembry played more point guard than usual with Trae Young getting tossed early today and this was a nice showcase of his stat set — nice counting numbers, awful percentages. Bembry does a little bit of everything for the Hawks and remains a solid deep-league asset if you're not sweating the efficiency.

DeAndre' Bembry put up 16 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and a 3-pointer in 34 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's overtime win.
The Hawks basically abandoned their centers for half the game and Bembry was one of the big winners off the bench thanks to his versatile game. This was his first big game in quite some time, though he's been a solid deep-league asset with top-185/210 value in 8/9-cat this season. His minutes might increase down the stretch so he's definitely someone to keep a close eye on if he's unowned in any 16-teamers out there. Bembry's percentages are often lacking, so he won't fit every team, however.

DeAndre' Bembry (left quad contusion) is not on the injury report for Wednesday.
Bembry was probable for Monday's game and played, so it was never expected to be a serious issue. He's fine for deep-league use as Atlanta's do-it-all reserve, though we can't recommend him outside of punt-percentages builds.

DeAndre' Bembry (left quad contusion) will play on Monday vs. the Rockets.
Bembry was probably going into this one so this shouldn't come as a surprise. He's outside of the top-250 right now and Trae Young and John Collins are really the only two that have a ton of upside. Hold on to Bembry though because he's got a decent floor.

DeAndre' Bembry (left quad contusion) is probable to play on Monday against the Rockets.
Bembry has been splitting backup point guard duties with Jaylen Adams lately, though Trae Young has been playing well enough that there's not much value to hunt for. Bembry's versatility gives him a stable deep-league floor and he's fine to use in 16-team formats for counting stats.

DeAndre' Bembry played backup point guard on Tuesday against the Lakers but could only muster six points, six rebounds, an assist and two steals in 23 minutes.
Bembry handled more playmaking duties tonight with Jeremy Lin gone and Jaylen Adams out but didn't do much with the opportunity. He's been a solid deep-league guy this year and is generally a nice source of counting stats at the expense of percentages, and he might be able to eke out a little more value if point guard work becomes a regular thing.

DeAndre' Bembry moved to the bench in favor of Taurean Prince on Saturday and was able to post just two points, one rebound and one assist in 15 minutes of playing time.
He's really a luxury stash in 14-team leagues at the moment but he could become a nice add depending on how the Hawks play the trade deadline. Obviously he can't be in starting lineups at the moment but deep-leaguers shouldn't be totally giving up yet.

DeAndre' Bembry finished Saturday's road loss with two points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 22 minutes of action.
Bembry started but that may not be the case for much longer. He's still a drag on percentages (1-for-5 tonight) and both Taurean Prince and Kevin Huerter are nearing full strength, so Bembry may not have enough playing time to keep pumping out volume counting stats. He's worth holding onto in 14-teamers for now but his arrow is pointing down.
January 21, 2019, 6:54 pmDeAndre' Bembry - F - Atlanta Hawks
DeAndre' Bembry started again and scored 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting (0-for-3 from deep) with two rebounds, seven assists, four steals and two blocks over 34 minutes in Monday's loss to the Magic.
Bembry has averaged 2.0 steals over his last seven games and still is barely cracking the top-150 over that span in 9-cat leagues, as he has turned it over 3.0 times per game. He's sitting on top-175 returns on the season in 25.1 mpg, so the percentages aren't killing him like they are with Brandon Ingram or Josh Jackson, but you'll want to make your add/drop decisions accordingly.

DeAndre' Bembry had 14 points (missed his only 3), six rebounds, five assists and a steal in a team-high 41 minutes in Friday's defeat of the Sixers.
This make 5-of-7 games Bembry has scored at least 10 points since Kent Bazemore sprained his ankle. He's been putting up some pretty impressive counting stats but his poor shooting (43.9 percent from the field, 55.6 percent from the stripe) leaves him with just top-190 9-cat value in that span. Thus, he's better for points formats, punt-builds and deeper leagues.

DeAndre' Bembry put up a dud on Wednesday with zero points on 0-of-6 shooting in 29 minutes against the Nets.
Bembry has been playing well as of late as the starting small forward, but did not show up in this game. He is just inside the top-180 on the season, but has provided late-round value over the past two weeks. He is a good stream until Taurean Prince and Kent Bazemore return to action.

DeAndre' Bembry started against the Raptors on Tuesday and scored 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting with six rebounds, five assists, a season-high five steals and seven turnovers in 37 minutes.
It's never dull with Bembry in the game and the weaknesses are well-known here with percentages and turnovers being the culprit. In a points league he's a very stashable player with a short-term window to be very good. In standard leagues he's only a strong pickup for owners that can punt in his deficient areas, and overall his best case scenario is getting big minutes after the All Star break while the team is tanking. He has barely cracked the top-150 over the last eight games while averaging 29.0 mpg.

DeAndre' Bembry drew his third start of the season on Sunday against the Heat and delivered 17 points, two boards, two assists and a triple.
Bembry was supposed to step up with Taurean Prince out of commission but he's failed to really uplevel his game up until the last two weeks when he's been returning top-150 value. Bembry has the skillset to deliver a steal, a block and a triple per game but he's failed to convert on that promise this season.
