De'Andre Hunter finished his rookie season with top-220 value in 8/9-cat formats.
Hunter started 62 of his 63 games played and averaged 32 minutes in those appearances, giving him an ample opportunity to prove what kind of player he can be in the league. The rookie posted an uninspiring 12.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. Touted as a quality defender coming out of college, Hunter only averaged 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks per game. On a team with multiple ball-dominant players Hunter is probably suited best in a three-and-D role on the wing. If the defensive numbers can slightly increase we could see Hunter play closer to top-120 value next season.

De'Andre Hunter saw 36 minutes of action on Wednesday night, turning in a line of 15 points (5-12 FG, 3-5 3PT), six rebounds and an assist.
Hunter had a few nice looks from deep and turned in a decent shooting performance tonight. We'd like to see more consistency on the defensive front for him to be a relevant player in most leagues.

De'Andre Hunter (left knee contusion) is available to play Monday night against the Hornets.
Even though Hunter is active tonight, he's been really bad over the course of this season. He's shown flashes at times, but he was coming into today questionable with his knee contusion. Whether it hinders him or not remains to be seen, but he's struggled over the past week or two anyways. He's a drop candidate for owners in high leverage matchups.

De'Andre Hunter (left knee contusion) is questionable for Monday's matchup with the Hornets.
Hunter has slowed down a little bit after a nice run in early February, shooting just 9-for-33 over his last three contests while racking up 14 fouls and seven turnovers in that span. He's a borderline standard-league option when he's playing well but right now Hunter shouldn't be part of the equation for most fantasy owners.

De'Andre Hunter put together some useful stats in an otherwise poor game with six points on 3-of-11 shooting, seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes in a loss to the Grizzlies.
The Hawks were without Cam Reddish (low back pain) and their two main centers, so Hunter had extra opportunity for production in this one. He's been a top-100 player over the past month, so he's worth monitoring. But the only categories in which he's been helping much are threes and rebounds, so make sure he's a fit for your team if you're eyeballing him.

Cam Reddish (back pain) will not play during Monday's game.
No big surprise here. De'Andre Hunter is a worthwhile DFS play against the Grizzlies.

Cam Reddish (back pain) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game.
Reddish was previously considered questionable. He had seemed to take a step forward of late as evidenced by a 26 point game on Friday against the Nets. De'Andre Hunter should see more time on the court against the Grizzlies barring a late status change.

De'Andre Hunter hit a career-high six 3-pointers on Saturday, scoring 22 points with four rebounds and one block in 38 minutes.
Hunter had the hot hand on Saturday, shooting 8-of-13 from the floor and 6-of-9 from deep. Hunter has been a top-120 player per game in 9-cat leagues over the past two weeks, averaging 14.8 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.0 threes while shooting .422 from the field and .929 from the line on 3.5 attempts per game. Hunter is worth an add in 14-team leagues and can be deployed as a back-of-the-bench points-and-threes specialist in standard leagues. Cam Reddish (back) left Saturday's game early and Hunter would see a boost in value if Reddish misses time.

Cam Reddish (lower back pain) will not return on Saturday vs. the Blazers, finishing with eight points, three rebounds, two assists and two threes in 24 minutes.
Reddish has been a top-85 player over the past month and a top-40 player over the past two weeks in 9-cat leagues. He is a hold in standard leagues because of his strong play recently. If he misses time De'Andre Hunter and Kevin Huerter would soak up most of his value.

Kevin Huerter (left adductor pain) is probable to face the Nets on Friday.
This injury was reported earlier in the day but doesn't appear to be serious. If Huerter were to ever miss a game, Cam Reddish and De'Andre Hunter would be the primary beneficiaries while Jeff Teague would get more ball-handling responsibility.

De'Andre Hunter (right ankle sprain) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.
Hunter returned to action on Monday putting up 22 points, seven rebounds, two assists and a triple in a whopping 39 minutes. He should be good to go moving forward.

After a one-game absence De'Andre Hunter will slide back into the starting lineup Monday evening in Philadelphia.
Hunter can be an asset in deeper leagues for the remainder of the season as the minutes and opportunities to produce will be there. The rookie has averaged 12.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists on the year.

De'Andre Hunter (personal) will miss Saturday's contest against the Mavs.
Hunter has been slowing improving as a fantasy asset, and we all know the minutes are going to remain stable for the rookie. If you have the space in standard leagues it is not a terrible idea to wait out this absence and see what Hunter can do to close out the year.

De'Andre Hunter went for 17 points, six rebounds and three triples on Thursday night.
Hunter played through a sprained right ankle in this game and frankly played quite well. We'd love to see some more defensive counters than this but if he's going to go 7-of-12 from the floor, we shouldn't complain.
