Hield is NOT in the SportsLine DraftKings optimal lineup or the FanDuel optimal lineup which are based on the computer model's projection. SportsLine.com also offers premium optimal lineups from Mike McClure, a professional DFS player who has over $1 million in career winnings. He uses his own proprietary model to find great DFS values and often differs from the computer in how a player is projected to play on a daily basis.

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Buddy Hield is not a fantasy star but is worth starting most weeks. He is the number #6 ranked shooting guard and the #33 ranked player overall. His value is boosted by staying healthy (81 GP). Based on average fantasy points he is the #13 shooting guard. He steadily increased his fantasy average as the season went on. He averaged 27.7 FPs in his first 26 games, 30.5 fantasy points in his next 26 and 32.3 FP after that. He is still relatively young, so he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Hield can be considered a consistent fantasy player. Our projected ceiling for Hield when he 'goes off' is 51 fantasy points (his average is 30.2FPs) with a floor of 10 points.

On DraftKings his floor was 19.5 and on FanDuel it was 17.5 fantasy points. He did not have a high ceiling (less than +50% over average). On Draftkings it was 48.2 and on FanDuel it was 44.5 FPs.
