De'Andre Hunter 2019-2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

He's absolutely worth a stream if you missed out on some other hot adds, he is a classic 'buy low' player as his shot hasn't been falling.

Maybe he keeps getting 40 minutes, gets more shots, goes on a hot streak and gets some stocks. Won't find that kind of upside around everyday.

I think his ceiling this year is capped at 14/6 with 2 threes.

He's been piling up minutes lately but hasn't provided much in defensive stats all year.

Trae should rightfully get his but the Hawks simply have too many wings. Heurter, Bembry, Parker, the ghost of VC all like to put up shots.

Never been projected to get a lot of stocks despite his length and fundamental defensive ability. He fell far in dynasty drafts because of it.

Watching the games you can see he is a good defender and needed on the floor for team fit but doesn't make the splash plays for fantasy production.

Hoping he develops that long term but wouldn't wait for that in standard leagues.

Added him last week, no idea why he can't get at least 1 spg, but he is getting huge minutes. Coach loves him and is A+ defender. When I watch him, I see a little Jayson Tatum in him. Not athletic, not fast, but excellent in picking his spots. Should not contribute much this year, but watch out in keeper leagues. His offense is underrated

6 steals alright for you mate?

Those FG% though. 36% last 5 games. That’s what’s keeping me from adding him. I already have Garland pulling my FG% down.

Hawks giving him all the minutes he can handle. Usage is there. He will have more than enough time to figure things out on both ends of the court until Collins gets back. Hawks hyped him like hell in the offseason, and they seemed pretty pleased with their pick. I just hope we are not a year early.

Ah, I dunno.  This might actually be his best game of the season; being guarded by a hobbled and aging Wes while everyone else focuses on Trae will probably allow you to get some really easy looks.  However, he's actually been playing quite well lately.

I'd grab him if you've got dead weight, and are okay with the FG% hit.  Also, besides today, his FT% sucks, he doesn't do much more than score/shoot treys, and he's probably gonna turn back into a pumpkin once Collins returns.  One of my leagues actually counts minutes, so he's sorta tempting, lol.

This dude is allergic to stocks. Kind of puzzling since he's known as a good defender IRL, but his fantasy game will always be limited due to it.

Hot take speculation here:

 

But I have to think that with as well as Luka Doncic is doing, they kinda have to forcefeed Hunter all the minutes and usage he can handle. They want to put Hunter in the best position to succeed because the Hawks basically gave up Luka Doncic for Trae and their rookies. In order to make the organization look best they have to make Hunter look like a hit.

Fantasy game aside he should be given a super super long leash, so at the very least I don't think he'll ever be in the doghouse this season.

If only he could get some more stocks it would be great. Now it feels if the shots miss it's nothing, but at least the growing confidence is obvious.

Thought he was a D-specialist on draft night but he isn't. 

If he had any D stats I would've added already.  SMH

40 minutes and 8 fantasy points lmao. Really starting to wonder if this kid has it at all. Dropping and not picking up again, this guy's game is terrible for fantasy.

Is there any untapped potential? Because owning him has been pretty frustrating so far and Collins is not even there.
