Hayward scorched the Clippers on Wednesday for a season-high 33 points (11-22 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 40 minutes. Hayward hasn't been the most consistent player this season, but his recent play suggests that he could be in a mini-hot streak. He's scored 22, 19, and 33 points over the last three games and has shot at least 45 percent from the field in each of them. Even when he cools off eventually, Hayward still produces enough stray rebounds, assists, steals, and treys to contribute in most formats.
Hayward posted 19 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT), four assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 30 minutes Monday against the Thunder. Hayward has been pretty inconsistent over the past five games, averaging 16.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 3.2 assists, but having hot and cold games in the process. He's always struggled to stay consistent for extended periods of time, but he's able to produce stray assists, steals, and threes. That being said, it's hard to count on him for consistency, but he's still a viable fantasy option.
Hayward had 22 points (8-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 38 minutes during the Jazz's 102-93 loss versus the Mavericks on Friday. Hayward has hit the 20-point mark only three times through 12 games. However, this was easily the best showing of the season for the sixth-year swing-man, and it might be prudent for fantasy owners to stay patient, as his shooting percentages and scoring numbers are likely to rise as the season progresses. The Jazz are back in action on Monday versus the Thunder.
Hayward scored 16 points (6-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with five assists, four rebounds and a steal in 30 minutes during Friday's loss to the Magic. He was one of only three Jazz players to score in double digits on the night, and the only Utah starter to make a field goal in his first half, as Orlando jumped out to an early lead they wouldn't relinquish. Hayward is now averaging 19.0 points, 4.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 1.2 threes in six November games.
Hayward finished with 17 points (6-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists and three rebounds over 35 minutes in Tuesday's 118-114 loss to the Cavaliers. Going up against LeBron James is never an easy task and Hayward struggled from the field. Things only get tougher when the Jazz take on a solid Heat defense Thursday.
