Hield pulled down three rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -10 in his 22:16 on the floor.
Analysis: Hield wasn't very good in Friday's win at Dallas, and he was downright awful on this night to finish the weekend with one 3-pointer in 10 attempts. Owners would be best served to wait out this slump, as the second-year guard still has plenty of fantasy promise as an outside shooting specialist who should get plenty of opportunities to score.

Hield grabbed six rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +7 in his 27:28 on the floor. Hield went 1 of 6 from 3-point range.
Analysis: After going 3 for 7 from 3-point range while netting 19 points in the season opener, Hield's outside shot was a bit off on this night. The second-year guard has been contributing in the rebound and assist categories, though, and there's fantasy upside to be found as long as he continues not to be shy with his shots.

Hield grabbed five rebounds and dished out four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 32:49 of playing time. He added one steal. Hield went 3 of 7 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Hield, whose field-goal attempts Wednesday were a team high, has a chance to be the top dog on a very young Sacramento team following his acquisition from the Pelicans in February in the DeMarcus Cousins deal. As a rookie last season, Hield's 15.1 scoring average in 25 games with the Kings was nearly double his average with New Orleans.
