March 23, 2019, 10:42 pmTrae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks
Trae Young cooked the Sixers for 32 points (11-of-20 shooting), six rebounds, 11 assists, a block, four 3-pointers and the game-winning floater with 0.1 seconds left in Saturday's 129-127 win.
Young has made tremendous strides over the course of the season and doesn't shy away from big moments. His game-winner saw him blast past Jimmy Butler towards Joel Embiid in the paint, but he calmly dropped in his runner. Six turnovers are the only blemish on tonight's line but Young looks ready to scorch everyone who was making fun of the Hawks early on. Atlanta's a fun team to watch with a great young core, and their fans should be very excited about the future.
March 23, 2019, 10:38 pmTaurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks
Taurean Prince put up 23 points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in Saturday's home win.
Prince went 8-of-15 from the field and was second on the team with 31 minutes played. He's found his form again recently, and while it might be too little too late for a lot of fantasy owners you should make sure that Prince isn't on the wire anywhere given his solid few weeks.
March 23, 2019, 10:35 pmJohn Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks
John Collins posted 13 points and nine rebounds against the Sixers on Saturday night but also came through with a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer.
Collins' defensive numbers have lagged for much of the season and it's nice to see him go on a bit of a run lately, even if it's at the expense of his usually-gaudy numbers in scoring and rebounding. Although he's averaging only 0.6 blocks on the season, Collins has at least one swat in seven of his last nine and 1.3 per game in the month of March. Here's hoping it keeps up over the season's final handful of games.
March 23, 2019, 10:31 pmDewayne Dedmon - C - Atlanta Hawks
Dewayne Dedmon's quality season continued despite Saturday's matchup with Joel Embiid, as he delivered 17 points, eight rebounds, two 3-pointers and two steals in 27 minutes.
Dedmon went 7-of-11 from the field and that's some nice work even if there were no blocks tonight. Alex Len also got additional run because of the matchup and came away with 14 points, four rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes. Dedmon's a must-start player, of course, but if you're desperate and wanted to stream Len in matchups against teams with two true centers, you can give it a shot. We wouldn't, for the record.
March 23, 2019, 10:26 pmKent Bazemore - G - Atlanta Hawks
Kent Bazemore shot 1-for-7 from the field in 16 minutes on Saturday night, finishing a win over the Sixers with three points and a rebound.
Bazemore also went 1-for-3 from the charity stripe. His bench role just can't sustain consistent standard-league value, and at a point in the season where every game counts it's tough to trust him even if there's top-150 numbers in the aggregate. Kevin Huerter is in a similar, albeit higher-floor boat, with seven points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a triple in 27 minutes.
March 21, 2019, 10:37 pmDewayne Dedmon - C - Atlanta Hawks
Dewayne Dedmon had a great fantasy game on Thursday night, overcoming a tough matchup with the Jazz to post 18 points (6-of-8 shooting), nine rebounds, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
Dedmon also hit three of his four free throws in the final minute to help keep the Hawks in front after Utah mounted a big second half charge. The Dead Man remains a reliable middle-round fantasy player and belongs in all fantasy lineups, as usual.
March 21, 2019, 10:34 pmTrae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks
Trae Young scored 23 points to go with 11 assists in Thursday's 117-114 win over the Jazz.
Young had a nice counting line and some more dazzling highlight passes, but his fantasy game wasn't quite up to par as he hit just one 3-pointer and committed five turnovers while going 8-of-22 from the field and 6-of-9 from the line. The warts occasionally shine through but Young has shown incredible growth over the second half of the season and has been an early-round guy in the last month as the future looks brighter by the day for Atlanta.
March 21, 2019, 10:24 pmTaurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks
Taurean Prince was able to collect 13 points on 5-of-8 from the field in Thursday's win over the Jazz, adding three rebounds, two assists, three steals and three 3-pointers.
Prince will end the season with late-round value but he's worked his way up to top-100 numbers over the last couple of weeks and riding a hot shooting run to a finish that's more in line with expectations. He's been disappointing for most of the campaign and his lines aren't always the type that catch the eye of more casual fantasy players, so make sure he isn't on waivers in your 12-team leagues. Also in the effective-but-boring category are Kent Bazemore (12 points on four triples in 15 minutes) and Kevin Huerter (14 points, two threes in 30 minutes) — Bazemore has higher upside but his playing time remains a major hurdle.
March 21, 2019, 10:18 pmJohn Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks
John Collins fouled out of Thursday's win over the Jazz, delivering a fairly quiet night of nine points, eight rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes.
Collins struggled with a burly Utah frontcourt, and he won't be the last guy with that issue. Fantasy owners can take some solace in the fact that he came through with defensive numbers tonight. That's been the only weak spot in Collins' game so far and we're hoping he starts posting numbers more in line with his rookie season going into next year. He's already a top-40 guy with disappointing steals and blocks totals.
March 19, 2019, 11:19 pmTrae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks
Trae Young double-doubled, going for 21 points, 12 assists, four rebounds, a steal and two triples in a home loss to the Rockets on Tuesday.
Young hit all seven of his free throws and made 6-of-13 from the field. It's all coming together for the rookie, as he's provided top-20/40 value in 8/9-cat leagues over the last month.
March 19, 2019, 11:13 pmJohn Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks
John Collins bounced back from Sunday's early exit with a double-double (20 points and 10 rebounds) in Tuesday's loss to the Rockets.
He's still not much for the cash-counters, but Collins has been a top-40/30 player in 8/9-cat leauges over the past month, and there are no signs of him slowing down.
March 19, 2019, 11:08 pmDeAndre' Bembry - F - Atlanta Hawks
DeAndre' Bembry put together a nice 14-point game on Tuesday vs. the Rockets that included 5-of-9 from the field, 2-of-2 from the charity stripe, nine rebounds, two assists and two threes in 23 minutes.
Bembry continues to be a hit-and-miss steals specialist that can provide a little bit of everything else. If you need a wildcard with upside, he may be your man.
March 19, 2019, 11:00 pmAlex Len - C - Atlanta Hawks
Alex Len disappeared on Tuesday vs. the Rockets, accumulating just two points and one rebound in 12 minutes.
Len may still have a few good games this season, but for those riding his recent hot streak with Dewayne Dedmon out or slowed, you can ditch him for a new streamer. Much of the same can be said for Kent Bazemore and his three points, five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 17 minutes on Tuesday.
March 18, 2019, 6:04 pmMiles Plumlee - C - Atlanta Hawks
Miles Plumlee (left knee) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.
Plumlee was said to be nearing a return at the end of February but that was clearly not the case. He remains out indefinitely and we'll update you when he's cleared to play again.

March 17, 2019, 8:55 pmJohn 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.
