Atlanta Hawks

Fantasy News

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young scored 30 points (9-of-20 FG, 8-of-8 FT), nailed four 3-pointers, handed out nine assists and grabbed six rebounds as the Hawks picked up a 122-107 win over the Hornets.

    Young is on a scoring binge at the moment, as he has gone for 30 or more points in six out of his last eight games. Enjoy the fun as he should be getting more help as the season progresses, but Young will still be eating plenty as the offensive hub for the Hawks.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter was impressive during his 25 minutes on Sunday vs. the Hornets, going 3-of-6 from 3-point land while also handing out six assists, grabbing two steals and registering one block.

    Huerter is an interesting pickup in standard leagues after this performance. Depending on your level of interest he is more of a 14-team option until we see him really ramp up his playing time and prove he can be the steady second play maker this team needs next to Trae Young.

  • Jabari Parker
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Jabari Parker returned to relevancy on Sunday as he dropped 19 points (7-of-12 FG), seven rebounds, two 3-pointers, two blocks and one steal on the Hornets.

    Parker brought it all to the table over 27 minutes. He largely disappeared in the prior four games so it was important to see him perform well alongside Trae Young tonight.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Allen Crabbe (right knee) will be available for Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    Crabbe will be have his minutes restricted to 25 and come off of the bench. Crabbe has little value in standard leagues with the Hawks' wings getting healthy.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter will rejoin the starting lineup on Sunday versus the Hornets.

    DeAndre' Hunter is playing, but will come off of the bench. Huerter will still be on a minute restriction, but it's being bumped up from 15 to 25 minutes.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (dislocated index finger) will play in Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    This is good news for Hunter, who was listed as doubtful just yesterday. Hunter is expected to come off of the bench with Cam Reddish and Kevin Huerter starting, but will not have any sort of minute restriction.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Allen Crabbe (right knee) has been upgraded to probable for Sunday's tilt against the Hornets.

    Crabbe has missed his last two games following a minor surgical procedure on his knee, but it seems like that stint on the sidelines is set to end today. He's not on the fantasy radar, and can really only be considered a fringe 3-point specialist at best.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (disloacted index finger) is now being listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Hornets.

    He was listed as doubtful yesterday so there is a chance he could see the floor in this one. His return would take shots from Cam Reddish, who is coming off his best game as a pro. Stay tuned for more updates.

    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Allen Crabbe (right knee) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    Crabbe's knee has been an ongoing problem since the preseason and it may linger throughout the season until he could get it cleaned up. It's hard to imagine him getting a full workload under the circumstances even if he does play.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (right index finger) has been listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    This would be the second straight game Hunter will miss due to the dislocation. Kevin Huerter is being brought along slowly. In the meantime, Cam Reddish and DeAndre' Bembry would absorb most of Hunter's minutes.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (disloacted finger) was able to go through a workout on Friday but still wasn't able to practice.

    The Hawks have no incentive to rush Hunter, who has started to look more comfortable after some early bumps in the road. He remains a weak redraft option but a promising dynasty player.

  • John Collins
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins is expected to play both power forward and center when he returns from suspension.

    This isn't surprising given how well Collins performed as a center in his limited sample this season. It won't affect his fantasy value at all but it could bump one of Atlanta's other centers from the rotation. Damian Jones has been playing well of late as the starter, so either Bruno Fernando or Alex Len stands the most to lose when Collins gets back.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Speaking to The Athletic, Hawks GM Travis Schlenk said that Trae Young's usage should "taper off" over the course of the season.

    Young has been absorbing absurd usage so far this season, but that figures to decline as the Hawks get back to full strength. The return of John Collins should take some shots away, while Schlenk specifically mentioned Kevin Huerter (shoulder) as a guy that can handle a primary ball-handling role. Rookies De'Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish should also get more of those opportunities as they continue to adjust to the NBA. Overall, there's no need to be concerned about Young, but he might see some extremely minor dips in production as the year goes on.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young was great in Atlanta's 118-130 loss to the Nets on Wednesday, scoring 39 points (13-of-23 shooting) to go with 10 assists, three rebounds, five triples and four turnovers in 37 minutes.

    The "All Trae All Day" show in Atlanta continued to be a boon to his fantasy numbers even if it's not translating to wins for the struggling ball club. The return of another play maker in Kevin Huerter (15 minutes zero points, two assists), will likely lead to a small reduction in Young's playing time, but there is little reason to doubt that he won't continue this torrid pace all year long.

  • Damian Jones
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Damian Jones put together a second good game in a row, scoring a career-high 20 points (8-of-8 shooting), to go with eight rebounds, one assist and one block.

    While it was easy to write off Jones' last good ball game as going up against the hapless Warriors, this one is actually quite impressive considering the competition of Jarrett Allen and DeAndre Jordan being fairly difficult to play with down low. The athletic big man's showing of promise should be taken with caution as John Collins' (suspension) return a matter of weeks will likely kill any value he has. That being said, he's hot right now, and is getting enough consistant defensive stats to warrant a flier if you are in desperate need of a big and want to see how long this hot streak lasts.
