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…
January 11, 2019, 10:31 pmDeAndre' Bembry - F - Atlanta Hawks
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.

DeAndre' Bembry will start over Daniel Hamilton against the Heat on Sunday.
Bembry started over Hamilton in the second half on Friday and had a fantastic game. Bembry has been in the top-150 over the past two weeks. With Kent Bazemore still out, and Lloyd Pierce announcing that Bembry will start the rest of the week, he's a good short-term add.

DeAndre' Bembry scored a career-high 19 points in Friday's loss, going 7-of-12 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line while adding two rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.
The Hawks did well to stay close with the Bucks tonight, getting outscored by only three points over the final three frames — if only they weren't down by 29 points after one quarter. Bembry started the second half in place of Daniel Hamilton (two points in 22 minutes) and went a bit out of character with this line. Most of his appeal comes from his 1.3 steals and 0.7 blocks while his .412 field goal shooting and .591 mark at the charity stripe hold him back, but Bembry came through in those departments tonight. He's got a shot at back-end value in the 12-14-team range while Kent Bazemore is out.

DeAndre' Bembry scored four points on 2-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, one assist, three steals and two blocks in 28 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Pacers.
Bembry missed both of his free throws to keep this a very Bembry line. If you can handle the percentages you're looking at a nice short-term window for him with Kent Bazemore and Taurean Prince both dealing with ankle injuries.
December 29, 2018, 11:03 pmDeAndre' Bembry - F - Atlanta Hawks
DeAndre' Bembry scored 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting (1-of-6 3PTs, 2-of-4 FTs) with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 29 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over the Cavs.
This is a perfect Bembry line as it highlights the efficiency issues while filling up the counting stats. Kent Bazemore left with an ankle injury so we might be looking at a short-term window for Bembry to fill it up in.

DeAndre' Bembry logged 35 minutes off the bench in Friday's overtime win against the Wolves, scoring six points on 3-of-8 shooting with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.
Bembry's percentages will be an issue but he can fill up the box score when given the chance. Especially if you're punting and/or not worried about those percentages down the stretch, he has potential to move the needle later this season. For now he belongs on the wire.
December 21, 2018, 11:00 pmKevin Huerter - G - Atlanta Hawks
Kevin Huerter scored 16 points (two 3s) and added a steal and a block in Friday’s defeat of the Knicks.
Huerter shot 6-of-12 from the field, 2-of-2 from the line but did have an atypical three turnovers. He’s been a top-90 play in 9-cat over the last two weeks and looks like he can maintain some value at least until Taurean Prince (ankle) returns. DeAndre’ Bembry has 12 points, two treys and a steal and remains a top-200 option in deeper leagues if you can stomach his shaky efficiency.

DeAndre' Bembry scored three points with one rebound and two assists in 20 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's win over the Wizards.
Now the the Hawks are getting healthy Bembry belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. He has potential but he needs much more ramp to make it happen.
