Gordon Hayward scored 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, four assists and one block in Monday's road win over the Grizzlies.
Hayward is a bit streaky and he's on a small heater right now. No longer the gaudy first round return he was early in the season, he's settled into a more realistic top 30-35 position for owners. Dec 23 - 1:37 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 20 points on 5-of-10 shooting (9-of-10 FTs) with three rebounds, six assists, one block and one three in Friday's win over the Magic.

Hayward was slumping for a bit last week but he has two solid games under his belt now. As we look more at cumulative stats now that we're almost a third of the way through the season, he has returned first to second round value in 8- and 9-cat leagues, respectively.
Dec 19 - 11:11 PM

Gordon Hayward got hot and hit 9-of-13 shots, 4-of-5 3-pointers and 7-of-7 free throws for 29 points, six rebounds, seven assists and a block in Wednesday's win over the Heat.

He didn't have any season highs tonight, but his shooting was out of this world and he finished with one of his better lines in what has been a fantastic season for the Butler product.
Dec 18 - 12:37 AM

Gordon Hayward made only 4-of-14 shots to finish Sunday's road loss with 16 points, seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers in 34 minutes.

Hayward was red-hot to begin the season but he's since settled into top-50 value, which should be sustainable as the primary option in Utah's offense. Fantasy owners' only concern should be his FG percentage, which is slogging along at 40.7 percent over Utah's past seven games.
Dec 14 - 8:42 PM

Gordon Hayward made 11-of-18 from the field for 30 points during a 112-96 loss to the Clippers on Saturday with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He was 4-of-8 from the line and that's suddenly become a problem since his 22-of-22 start. Hayward is a career 81.2 percent shooter from the line and there's really nothing to worry about on the foul shooting front. He's topped 24 points in three of his last four, has seen his steals go up, and looks poised for a big season after picking up a max contract.

Gordon Hayward, who was held to six points vs. the Bulls on Monday, bounced back with 24 points, one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, three assists and four steals in Wednesday's road loss in Oklahoma City.

Hayward was solid from the field (8-of-15) but he made an uncharacteristic 7-of-14 free throws, dropping him from a career-best 85.9 percent FT average to 80.4 percent. He's notching career highs in virtually every category this season and the occasional hiccup should be easily overlooked by his fortunate fantasy owners.
Nov 27 - 12:08 AM

Gordon Hayward was terrific in a losing effort against the Pelicans on Saturday, making 9-of-16 from the field for 31 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He made 11-of-14 from the line, which serves as a great indicator of how aggressive he was tonight. Hayward adding some muscle to his frame was highly evident tonight and his new style should help him sustain a better shooting clip. The breakout is real.
Nov 23 - 2:16 AM

Gordon Hayward (illness) was quiet in Tuesday's home victory, hitting 4-of-12 shots to finish with 13 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes.

He was 1-of-7 from downtown and turned the ball over four times, and never seemed in rhythm after being slowed by an illness for the past few days. Hayward was on fire to start the season and he's embracing his go-to status with the Jazz, so fantasy owners shouldn't be soured by a couple of poor games.
Nov 18 - 11:49 PM

Gordon Hayward is feeling better from an illness and is expected to play on Tuesday against the Thunder.

He was sick on Saturday night, but had his worst game of the season with just 12 points on 3-of-10 from the field. Hayward should be locked and loaded in all fantasy lineups.
Nov 17 - 4:18 PM

Gordon Hayward said he's "extremely comfortable" in Quin Snyder's system.

Hayward is having a breakout season after signing a highly-criticized max contract during the offseason. Averaging 19.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.7 3-pointers on 48.3 percent shooting, he's been an absolute steal for owners who grabbed him in their fantasy drafts.

Gordon Hayward had an overdue dud on Saturday against the Raptors with 12 points, one rebound, five assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

He's basically been batting 1.000 with productive lines for his fantasy owners and was putting up first-round value on the year. Obviously his owners have nothing to worry about and he'll likely get it going against the Thunder on Tuesday.
Nov 15 - 10:56 PM

Gordon Hayward scored a season-high 33 points on 11-of-18 shooting (2-of-6 3PTs, 9-of-10 FTs) with three rebounds, six assists and four steals in Friday's win over the Knicks.

Hayward is enjoying mid-first round value and shooting a bit over his head at 50 percent from the field and 90 percent from the foul line. It's entirely possible that he takes a big jump in those areas this season, but some regression is to be expected. Still, owners should be very choosy about any sell-high offers as Hayward is going to put up big lines all year long.
Nov 15 - 12:31 AM

Gordon Hayward hit just 5-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, seven rebounds and two steals in a loss to the Hawks.

Thabo Sefoloasha was in the starting lineup for the Hawks due to a DeMarre Carroll injury and helped to stifle Hayward tonight. He came into this one on fire, and we fully expect him to pick it back up in his next game. He was due for a let down.
Nov 12 - 10:03 PM

Gordon Hayward used Monday's away game in Indiana as an opportunity to get a haircut and pizza from his old hometown.

The Brownsburg, Indiana native used his homecoming as a chance to get back to his roots. "[They] came to me," Hayward said of his pre-game haircut from his old barber. "I got some Donatos pizza. They don't have that in Utah. That was good." Hayward poured in 30 points to go along with eight rebounds, five assists, one block, and two treys during the loss and further solidified his status as a top-25 fantasy player thus far.

Gordon Hayward returned to his college stomping grounds against the Pacers on Monday with 30 points, eight rebounds, five assists, one block and two 3-pointers on 11-of-15 from the field.

He made all six attempts from the line to put him at 35-of-36 on the season. Hayward is holding steady at five assists per game and he's obviously playing extraordinarily well in coach Quin Snyder's offense. He is turning in early first-round value in standard leagues right now and his owners have to be extremely pleased.
