Atlanta Hawks

Fantasy News

  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins didn't have a great game as he only logged 20 minutes before fouling out on Sunday against the Magic.

    Collins finished with 10 points and seven boards in the contest but could have had a much better day had he logged a solid day's work. Don't worry, Collins will bounce back and continue to fill the box for your squad.

  • Alex Len - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len did damage on Sunday against the Magic by scoring 13 points in 24 minutes, adding a block, a triple and three boards.

    Len got a bit more run as John Collins dealt with foul trouble and eventually fouled out. Len isn't a great weekly option but he has DFS appeal based on who the Hawks roll out on a nightly basis.

  • Trae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young had a solid game on Sunday, hitting 9-of-18 shots against the Magic to score 20 points with six boards, five assists and a steal.

    Young failed to hit a triple on Sunday but it's great to see him deliver a solid line without the deep shot falling. Young has been a top-30 player over the last two months and could be drafted even earlier next season.

  • Dewayne Dedmon - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Dewayne Dedmon logged 25 minutes on Sunday against the Magic in the 91-101 loss while contributing 10 points, 14 boards, two triples, two steals and two assists.

    Dedmon has had a surprising season for the Hawks as a top-70 asset after finishing barely inside of the top-100 last season. Dedmon will be 30 years old next season and should continue to deliver blocks, triples and solid across the board production as long as he gets consistent playing time.

  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins posted 20 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block in Saturday's loss to the Celtics.

    Collins is sitting in the early-middle rounds because it took him awhile to start racking up blocks this year, but he's averaging 1.6 swats per contest over his last five. Hopefully he's in line for a big finish there. Collins went 7-of-19 from the field and 6-of-9 from the line today, but that's a one-game blip that you shouldn't fret over for the .574/.769 shooter.

  • Trae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Youg finished Saturday's loss with 26 points (10-of-17 shooting), four rebounds, four assists, two steals, five 3-pointers and six turnovers.

    Marcus Smart was all over Young in this one, so the turnovers can be forgiven. It's great to see the rookie scoring efficiently and hitting his triples, and it certainly looks like he's back in the saddle after a few games of horrible shooting earlier in the week.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince was able to post 17 points, four rebounds, two blocks and three 3-pointers in Saturday's loss to the Celtics.

    Prince is back on track, dropping well-rounded, late-round lines. It's going to be a disappointing season when it's all said and done but Prince should be good for at least late-round production going forward.

  • Dewayne Dedmon - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Dewayne Dedmon had a rough go on offense (five points on 2-of-10 shooting) but still came away with 13 rebounds, three steals and a block on Saturday.

    Dedmon played 30 minutes and no longer has a minutes restriction, which means he should be locked into all fantasy lineups from here on out. Owners aren't leaning on him for scoring, but it's still nice to see him make up for a lackluster effort there with big numbers elsewhere.

  • Vince Carter - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    Vince Carter came off the bench for 16 points, a steal and four 3-pointers on Saturday against the Celtics.

    Carter's played a surprisingly large role for the Hawks down the stretch but deep-league owners aren't complaining. VC's a solid bet for 3-pointers the rest of the way and can pop with some nice scoring efforts like this as well.

  • Alex Len - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len finished Saturday's loss to the Celtics with seven points, four rebounds and a block in 11 minutes of run.

    Len has been great in March, and it's hardly surprising that his other dud, a two-point performance against Chicago, came in his lowest playing time of the month (21 minutes) prior to today. Chalk it up to the matchup and focus on the next one, but beware that the other shoe could drop and send Len back to irrelevance.

  • Kent Bazemore - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Kent Bazemore scored 12 points in 21 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Celtics.

    Bazemore added one rebound and four assists in a relatively disappointing line, though it was a nice follow-up to his scoreless dud on Wednesday. He continues to confound fantasy owners, posting decent, low-end lines before disappearing for a game or two. There's late-round stuff here if you can afford to ride the wave.

  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins had a monster game on Wednesday with 27 points and 12 rebounds in 25 minutes in a 132-111 win over the Grizzlies.

    He also added one triple, one assist, one steal and two blocks to the box score. Collins is a top-50 value on the season and a top-25 value over the past month in 9-cat leagues. If Collins can begin putting up defensive stats consistently, he will be a dominant early-round player in fantasy.

  • Trae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young scored 22 points with eight assists on 8-of-12 shooting in a win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    He hit three 3-pointers and added three rebounds and one steal to the box score. Young has easily been the best rookie over the past month and has the potential to retain top-50 value for the remainder of the season. Fellow rookie Kevin Huerter, who has also been on fire as of late, chipped in 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting.

  • Alex Len - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len put up a great performance against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, with 20 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two blocks on 8-of-13 shooting.

    He hit two triples and made two of his four attempts from the stripe. He outplayed the starting center, Dewayne Dedmon, who had six points, six rebounds, two steals and two blocks on 3-of-9 shooting. However, Dedmon is a early-middle round value and is the preferred option over Len (late-round value).

  • Dewayne Dedmon - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Dewayne Dedmon will move back into the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Grizzlies and won't have any minutes restrictions.

    Dedmon was capped at 20 minutes on Sunday in his first game back but he still went for eight points, six boards and four cash counters. It's a quick ramp-up after two games on the sidelines but fantasy owners should be thrilled. He's a must-start player while Alex Len could very well be a drop now that he's moving back to the bench. His recent performance gives him a little leash but we wouldn't hesitate to move on in standard-sized leagues if Len has a bad game tonight.
