Denzel Valentine signed his one-year, $4.7M qualifying offer with Chicago

G/F Denzel Valentine has officially signed his one-year, $4.7M qualifying offer and will remain with the Chicago Bulls.

Denzel Valentine has $4.7 million qualifying offer extended by CHI

Denzel Valentine had a $4.7 million qualifying offer extended by the Bulls on Monday per beat writer Darnell Mayberry.

Fantasy Impact

The former 14th overall pick of the 2016 draft is averaging 7.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.1 assists over three seasons with the Bulls. He played well in stretches last season, mainly filling in for the injured Zach LaVine. If he can stay healthy, his fantasy stock could improve under new coach Billy Donovan. This move would also indicate the Bulls prefer to keep Valentine over Kris Dunn.

Denzel Valentine gets spot start and drops 15

Denzel Valentine logged 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-6 3PT), two assists, one rebound, and one steal over 23 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Cavaliers.

Fantasy Impact

Not that anyone expected Valentine to replicate the injured Zach LaVine's production, but he hasn't come anywhere near that in his limited opportunity. Over his five starts he has averaged 13.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 1.6 three-pointers drained on 25.8% from deep. While he's been a decent value in DFS, LaVine's return should be soon and Valentine will be relegated back to his 12-15 minutes per game off the bench. However, if LaVine is shut down in the Bulls' lost season, Valentine could continue to contribute as a solid DFS value.

Denzel Valentine shines in spot start

Denzel Valentine managed 17 points (7-15 FG, 3-10 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and a block across 21 minutes in the Bulls’ 109-107 win over the Mavs on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Valentine returned Saturday from a seven-game absence due to a hamstring injury, and he was thrust into the starting lineup for the first time this season just one game later. Filling in for Zach LaVine, Valentine provided one of his best games of the season while hitting a season-high point total. He's likely to hang onto the starting gig as long as LaVine is out of action, and the latter is day-to-day with a quad injury.
