Solomon Hill scored five points with five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday.
As expected, Hill has come down to earth after his 30-point explosion on Mar. 17. Hill hit just 1-of-7 shots from the field, and with only two more games on the schedule this week, he's more of a streaming option in deeper formats. He was averaging 9.0 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists and 0.9 steals in his previous 10 games. Mar 22 - 12:00 AM

Date:

Solomon Hill followed up his 30-point eruption with 13 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists, three steals and one turnover in 35 minutes.

Hill went off in the absence of DeMarcus Cousins, who was back tonight after missing one game, but he still carved out a strong across-the-board fantasy line. We're skeptical that he can keep up this level of play, or anywhere near it, but in fairness he's played well in four of his past five games. He's worth a look until he cools off.
Mar 19 - 8:58 PM

Solomon Hill scored a career-high 30 points against the Rockets on Friday, adding six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and six 3-pointers.

Those assists also matched his career high and he set a season high in treys. He has been one of the primary defenders for the Pelicans and he even had to guard James Harden for much of this game. Obviously not having DeMarcus Cousins was huge for Hill tonight, but this is shocking after a four-point Wednesday. Hill could be worth a look as a speculative add in deeper leagues, but most owners should want to see him do it again on Sunday against the Wolves.
Mar 18 - 1:21 AM

Solomon Hill went just 1-of-7 from the field vs. Miami on Wednesday, scoring four points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and four turnovers in 26 minutes.

Hill scored 16 and 12 points in his previous two games. He hasn't scored double-digit points in three straight games all season, however, so this was the easiest prop bet of the night. With Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins swallowing up all the usage, there's nothing to see here.
Mar 15 - 11:48 PM

Solomon Hill scored 16 points with three rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 43 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

This was one of his best games of the season with some important defense. Hill scored a combined 11 points in his previous four games, so he would obviously need to do it again to even be considered as a pickup.
Mar 11 - 10:47 PM

Solomon Hill scored three points with one rebound and one assist in 40 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

He managed a 5.9 usage rate and a 0.0 defensive rebounding rate in these 40 minutes, so that's pretty much all you need to know about the shots available when the Pelicans have their two bigs. Hill isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 4 - 2:12 AM

Solomon Hill played 36 minutes with two points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal against the Mavs on Saturday.

The playing time will certainly be there, but the usage rate will not. He's going to log most of his minutes next to DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday, so he won't be an option unless he's wide open or as a cutter.
Feb 26 - 12:00 AM

Solomon Hill scored a season-high 23 points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

That's impressive against the Grizzlies defense and he was shockingly the game's high scorer. Hill clearly benefited from Terrence Jones (thumb) and Dante Cunningham (personal) not playing, so the needle doesn't really move too much here.
Feb 15 - 11:35 PM

Solomon Hill scored 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 34 minutes vs. the Spurs on Friday.

That's two solid games in a row for Hill after he scored 14 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two triples on Wednesday vs. the Thunder. While his minutes are up, it's still hard to trust a guy who was averaging 6.5 points and 3.9 rebounds in his previous January games. If you don't like the guy at the end of your bench in a very deep league, give Hill a look.
Jan 28 - 1:27 AM

Solomon Hill played 36 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday with 10 points, six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

He played the entire first quarter and hasn't been affected too much with Tyreke Evans getting more run. Hill is going to be responsible for taking 3-pointers in the first unit, but he only has value in deeper leagues with a low usage rate.
Jan 14 - 7:53 PM

Solomon Hill double-doubled against the Nets on Thursday with 14 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

It's his first double-double of the season with his last one coming in April coincidentally against the Nets. Hill obviously benefitted with Anthony Davis (hip) not playing, but it also helped that the Pelicans center were flat-out awful to open up more frontcourt minutes. Hill could have some short-term value, but Davis' injury sounds minor.
Jan 12 - 10:55 PM

Solomon Hill played 17 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday with four points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

With Donatas Motiejunas in town, Hill is going to lose some minutes going forward. He didn't have much value anyway.
Jan 7 - 10:02 PM

Solomon Hill moved into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Mavericks and scored 10 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and two triples in 31 minutes.

He was back in the starting lineup because coach Alvin Gentry wanted to match up with the small-ball lineup of the Mavs. This was one of Hill's best games of the season and he finished 2-of-5 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line, but he's not a lock to keep his starting job. He had season averages of 5.6 points and 3.7 rebounds prior to Monday, so we'd like to see another strong performance before we could get behind an add.

Solomon Hill will start on Monday vs. the Mavericks.

Alexis Ajinca will come off the bench. The Pelicans are simply matching up with the small-ball lineup for the Mavs, as Anthony Davis will shift to center to matchup with Dirk Nowitzki. Hill is not a fantasy asset and has season averages of 5.6 points and 3.7 rebounds. The Pelicans probably want that $52 million back.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 07:57:00 PM

Solomon Hill moved to the bench on Friday, where he picked up three points on 1-of-6 shooting, two boards and one steal in 24 minutes.

Hill was already a liability outside of deep leagues, despite playing 27.8 minutes per game, so even if the bench role sticks it won't have a major fantasy implication. Dante Cunningham took his spot at SF tonight but neither is worth owning in leagues with fewer than 16 teams.
