Atlanta Hawks

Fantasy News

  • Kevin Huerter - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter led the Hawks with a team-high 18 points on 7-of-18 shooting in Saturday's 105-113 loss to the Celtics, adding four rebounds, seven dimes, four triples and three steals.

    This was a sweet two-way performance from the rookie, who has managed to hold value in standard leagues due to occasional games like this one. He even outplayed Trae Young, who had a lackluster showing with 16 points on 6-of-17 shooting, seven assists, one steal, two treys and six turnovers.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince had his minutes restriction lifted on Saturday but the Hawks' prized two-way player struggled with his shot, going 3-for-14 from the field to finish with nine points and a low-end full line.

    Prince contributed in other areas with his shot not finding its mark, adding seven rebounds, one assist, a triple, one block and two steals to round out his line for the night. Prince clearly needs time to shake off the rust but his 23 minutes and activity on both ends of the floor bode well for his outlook.

  • Dewayne Dedmon - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Dewayne Dedmon returned from a two-game absence with an ankle injury on Saturday and had a quiet outing, dropping six points, three rebounds, one trey and one block in 25 minutes.

    Dedmon has been a top-80 player on the season in 9-cat, so we expect those numbers to pick up as he gets his legs back. Stay patient.

  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins (bronchitis symptoms) was a breath of fresh air on Saturday as he posted 15 points (5-of-7 shooting), 11 rebounds, three dimes and one 3-pointer.

    Collins is delivering as advertised preseason so far, his injury to start the season notwithstanding. He's been climbing up the fantasy rankings steadily and is now at a top-70 value in 9-cat. His ceiling is still uncharted, so we can be in for some bigger games ahead.

  • Alex Len - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len logged just 19 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Celtics but that did not stop him from delivering 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, one steal, one trey and one block.

    Len has been up and down all season with a nice string of good games lately. However, with the Hawks getting healthier we are already seeing a decline in his playing time, making him a tough hold in 16-team leagues or deeper.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince will be without a minutes restriction for Saturday's game.

    Prince battled an ankle injury before an illness, and has not logged full minutes in a long time. We've seen what Prince can do when healthy, and he should be able to work into mid-round value as he gets his legs back under him.

  • Dewayne Dedmon - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Dewayne Dedmon will start at center in Saturday's game.

    Dedmon missed the past two games with an ankle issue, but seems to be fine as he won't have a minutes limit. As long as he's on the Hawks and healthy, Dedmon has mid-round upside and should be owned.

  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins (bronchitis symptoms) is available to play on Saturday night against the Celtics.

    Collins, like his teammate Trae Young (flu symptoms), is available to play as expected. Collins is in the middle of a most-improved player campaign. Make sure he's in your lineups for Saturday.

  • Trae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (flu-like symptoms) is available to play in Saturday's game against the Celtics.

    Young was expected to play in this one, so no surprises here. He's playing his best basketball of his young career, but has a tough test against the Celtics' defense in this contest.

  • Trae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (flu symptons) is expected to play on Saturday against the Celtics.

    Young is playing his best basketball of the season with 20..5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.3 triples over the last six games. The high turnover rate certainly hurts his value but let's assume if you are one of the top teams, winning turnovers likely isn't your priority.

  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins (flu symptoms) expected to play against Celtics on Saturday.

    Collins was originally listed as questionable but Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore says it looks like he will play. Collins is in the conversation for most improved player, almost doubling his scoring from last year and averaging over three more rebounds per game. The lack of defensive stats is the reason he is still at a lowly top-70 per game value but that can turn around.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin (illness) was left off the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against Boston.

    Lin missed Tuesday's game but we should expect to see him on Saturday. He is at top-200 per game value over his last five games with 13.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.2 triples. He is spot-start worthy but can be left on the waiver wire for the most part in standard leagues.

  • Dewayne Dedmon - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Dewayne Dedmon is available for Saturday's game against the Celtics.

    Dedmon has missed two straight, so this return is welcome for fantasy owners. He has some real upside as a top-75 player as long as he is manning the paint for this poor Hawks team.

  • Trae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (flu symptoms) and John Collins (bronchitis symptoms) are both questionable for Saturday's game against the Celtics.

    There seems to be something going around in the Hawks locker room, with two of their future stars limited. Jeremy Lin could see some extra love if Young is out, and the fronctourt roles could with more DeAndre Bembry and Omari Spellman action.

  • Dewayne Dedmon - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Dewayne Dedmon (left ankle sprain) was a participant in Thursday's practice.

    Dedmon has missed the last two games but appears to be close to a return. Omari Spellman will head back to the bench and Alex Len's big lines should become a thing of the past, though that setup is worth remembering since Dedmon's been bouncing around the rumor mill of late. He's a must-start player but is at risk of losing some serious value if he ends up being traded to a team that's got quality center options. You can try to sell high if you're getting worried.
