Mike Dunleavy struggled throughout Sunday's game, scoring four points on 1-of-7 shooting with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and five personal fouls in 33 minutes.
The Bulls' offense went ice cold in the second and fourth quarters, and Dunleavy wasn't alone in his misery. Taj Gibson shot 2-of-7 from the field, Joakim Noah was 4-of-12, Jimmy Butler was 8-of-21 and Nikola Mirotic went 1-of-9 in 18 minutes off the bench. The Bulls will look to regain the series lead during Game 5 in Cleveland on Tuesday. May 10 - 7:58 PM

Mike Dunleavy had another strong and steady game for the Bulls in their Game 3 win over the Cavs on Friday, scoring 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including three treys) with six rebounds, one steal and one block in 39 minutes.

Dunleavy is proving the Bulls with solid minutes and making his looks, which is just about all you can ask for out of the vet. Give him a look as a lower-end play in DFS leagues.
May 8 - 11:42 PM

Mike Dunleavy hit 5-of-6 shots (3-of-4 from deep) for 14 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one steal over 39 minutes in Monday's Game 1 win over the Cavs.

Dunleavy could be in for a heavy workload this series and though he'll be hard pressed to keep shooting like this -- owners will want to give him a bit of added consideration with this workload. Pau Gasol added 21 points, 10 boards, four assists and four blocks in the win.
May 4 - 10:31 PM

The NBA gave Mike Dunleavy a Flagrant 1 foul for his hit on Michael Carter-Williams during Game 6, but he will not be suspended.

Dunleavy popped Michael Carter-Williams and later hit Giannis Antetokounmpo above the neck, but the league obviously didn't view either play as malicious. He finished Round 1 on a high note with 20 points, four rebounds and five assists, and will look to keep it going vs. the Cavaliers on Monday.
May 2 - 10:31 AM

Mike Dunleavy was on fire during the first half against the Bucks on Thursday, making 5-of-7 from the field for 20 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

He got into it with Michael Carter-Williams and Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was ejected for a really bad foul today. Dunleavy does have an outside chance to be suspended for Game 1 against the Cavs. If that happens, Tony Snell and Nikola Mirotic would get more minutes.
Apr 30 - 9:53 PM

Mike Dunleavy kept the Bulls close throughout Sunday's loss in Cleveland, scoring 24 points on 8-of-12 shooting with four 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and one steal.

He made all four of his free throws and only turned the ball over once, richly rewarding any owner who deployed him in a tough road matchup vs. the Cavs. The Bulls face the Magic on Wednesday, a team which has allowed opponents to shoot 36.9 percent from downtown this season (second-highest in the league), so feel free to leave Dunleavy in your active lineup.
Apr 5 - 7:12 PM

Mike Dunleavy scored two points with six rebounds, three assists and no turnovers in 25 minutes against the Hornets on Monday.

His minutes did not drop as much as expected, but one would think he's in jeopardy of losing minutes to Nikola Mirotic once the Bulls get Joakim Noah (rest) back. Dunleavy can be dropped in most leagues with Jimmy Butler ready to roll.
Mar 23 - 11:58 PM

Mike Dunleavy scored 21 points during a 108-92 win over the Raptors on Friday with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

It's his second game in a row with 21 points and he's really coming on. However, Jimmy Butler (elbow) is getting closer, so Dunleavy won't be asked to score nearly as much. His fantasy owners should be expecting his numbers to drop off soon.
Mar 21 - 1:39 AM

Mike Dunleavy scored 21 points against the Pacers on Wednesday with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He scored a combined 17 points in his previous four games, so this came out of nowhere. Dunleavy is likely going to lose some fantasy value once Jimmy Butler (elbow) gets back, so there's no need to run to the wire to grab him right now.
Mar 19 - 1:14 AM

Mike Dunleavy played 26 minutes against the Hornets on Friday with three points, one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

As ugly as the low point total looks, he still put up a stat in every other category. Dunleavy lost some playing time due to not playing well in his previous two, so there's chance his minutes stay in the mid-20s. The Bulls are not being consistent on the wing and don't have a great schedule anyway, so it's probably best to just steer clear of trying to capitalize on the Jimmy Butler (elbow) injury.
Mar 13 - 10:04 PM

Mike Dunleavy scored 12 points on 3-of-5 shooting Sunday, with two 3-pointers, one rebound, one assist and two turnovers through 29 minutes of action.

Dunleavy is worth a look in standard leagues for those seeking some 3-point shooting. He's notched at least one 3-pointer in his past six outings, and the Bulls could really use his offense with both Derrick Rose (knee) and Jimmy Butler (elbow) out. If Dunleavy is still available in your league, and you're holding onto Tony Snell, it would make sense to make the switch.
Mar 8 - 5:53 PM

Mike Dunleavy scored 21 points against the Thunder on Thursday with four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He did miss a breakaway dunk, but Dun-Dun clearly looks to be over his ankle injury from before the break. He's been over 30 minutes in each of his last four games with two 21-point games and only eight points combined in his other two. Dunleavy has a higher upside than Tony Snell and he should be owned in standard leagues. Hopefully he can stay healthy.
Mar 5 - 11:24 PM

Mike Dunleavy finally got on board with 21 points, five threes, eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 32 minutes in Friday's win.

This is Mike D's first real solid night since returning from his ankle injury, and the season-long rankings are probably the best place for owners to gauge his value. He has returned top 135-170 value in 28.6 mpg this season, and with Derrick Rose out and Taj Gibson possibly missing time in the short-term, he could end up with some late-round value to finish the year. In 9-cat leagues he's definitely worth an add and in 8-cat leagues he's simply worth a look.
Feb 28 - 2:33 AM

Mike Dunleavy did not score in his 20 minutes of action on Wednesday, adding one rebound, two assists, one steal and two turnovers.

He played 20 minutes on Monday, which was down from 28 minutes on Saturday. Dunleavy will likely see an increase to his playing time and he does have a history of being a top-125 guy with 25-28 minutes, so fantasy owners should keep an eye on him. That said, there's really no need to add him right now because none of your competition has him on their radar just yet.
Feb 26 - 12:23 AM

Mike Dunleavy scored 15 points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers against the Suns on Saturday.

He finally had a good game. Dunleavy has been hurt a lot this season and obviously the emergence of Jimmy Butler has really hurt his chance to produce. Dunleavy is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
