    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Jeff Teague’s production fell off in a big way following a January trade from the Wolves to the Hawks, causing him to end with top-160 value in 8-category leagues.

    The Wolves began starting Jarrett Culver over Teague, eventually leading to the swap with the Hawks. Teague possessed just top-180 value in 9-category leagues and his production suffered even on a per-minute basis with the Hawks. During 34 games with the Wolves, he averaged 13.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 6.1 assists. Over 25 contests with the Hawks, he managed only 7.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 4.0 assists per contest. While Teague was stuck behind Trae Young and can sign elsewhere in free agency, it’s fair to ask whether his best fantasy days are behind him.

    Jeff Teague (illness) is available for Monday night's matchup against the Hornets.

    Teague is available tonight against the Hornets, but as long as Trae Young is active, the veteran backup is a viable play only for deep leaguers or for folks looking to stream some cheap assists.

    Jeff Teague (illness) is questionable for Monday's tilt against the Hornets.

    The flu seems to be making its way throughout the Hawks locker room as Trae Young was out with similar symptoms on Friday. If Teague is out on Monday it will open up opportunities for Kevin Huerter and Cam Reddish, especially if Trae Young is still out. Teague is just a deep league option when Young is healthy and running the show in Atlanta.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (flu-like symptoms) is being listed as questionable against the Grizzles on Saturday.

    Young missed Friday's game which allowed Jeff Teague to start and play 28 minutes but it was Kevin Huerter (14 points, 11 assists) and Cam Reddish (28 points) who really shined in his absence. Check back for another update prior to game-time.

    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (illness) will miss Friday's game against the Wizards.

    Jeff Teague will get the start in lieu of Young. He could be in for a nice night of DFS numbers, and John Collins will be putting up plenty of shots vs. the Wizards in what should be a high-scoring affair. Young will have the chance to return on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young is officially listed as questionable ahead of Friday's tilt vs. the Nets as he continues to deal with flu-like symptoms.

    Young was listed as questionable before Wednesday's game and ended up having a terrific game. It will likely be tomorrow afternoon that we learn more in regards to his availability. If he misses time, Jeff Teague and Kevin Huerter will both see their values increase.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter (left adductor pain) is probable to face the Nets on Friday.

    This injury was reported earlier in the day but doesn't appear to be serious. If Huerter were to ever miss a game, Cam Reddish and De'Andre Hunter would be the primary beneficiaries while Jeff Teague would get more ball-handling responsibility.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (illness) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game.

    Young has been experiencing flu-like symptoms. While nobody on the roster can adequately fill his shoes, Jeff Teague is likely to fill in if Young takes the night off.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Jeff Teague scored eight points on 4-of-5 shooting to go with three rebounds, one steal and a game-high 11 dimes on Monday.

    This was easily Teague's best game in a Hawks uniform this season, but he till only played 16 minutes. It doesn't look like the playing time will increase much so you can ignore him unless you need an assists streamer.

  • Cam Reddish
    G-F, Atlanta Hawks

    Cam Reddish (concussion) has been upgraded to probable for Monday's game.

    He was previously listed as questionable. Reddish has been out for over a week but should be ready to go against the Magic. Jeff Teague would likely see less action in that case.

    Jeff Teague (left shoulder soreness) is probable to play on Monday.

    Teague has been north of 25 minutes in each of the last two games but he hasn't done much beyond average five assists in those contests. He's a deep-league option for dimes with upside whenever Trae Young sits out.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (bruised right ankle) has been downgraded to doubtful to face the Celtics on Friday.

    Things are going to be messy for the Hawks if Young sits out versus the Celtics. Jeff Teague will be given a lot of responsibility, De'Andre Hunter will be asked to do more on the perimeter, and John Collins will get plenty of touches with Young not orchestrating the Hawks entire offense.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks have declared Kevin Huerter (adductor), De'Andre Hunter (ankle sprain) and Jeff Teague (knee pain) available for Friday.

    All three were probable and should be deployed as usual. Huerter is the only one of the bunch worth a shot in 12-team leagues, though we'll have to see how Atlanta's busy trade deadline changes everyone's roles. Most of the adds came up front so it'll be a ripple effect situation, if anything.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter (adductor pain) and Jeff Teague (left knee pain) are both probable to play in Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

    All expectations are that Huerter and Teague will play. Huerter is worth a spot in standard leagues while Teague could have some appeal in 14-team leagues and deeper.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young filled up the box score again, this time in a 115-123 loss to the Celtics on Monday, by posting a game-high 34 points (10-of-20 FGs, 10-of-11 FTs), three rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

    There's not much left to say about Trae, the number 7/29-ranked player (8-cat/9-cat) this season. You could nitpick his high turnovers or lack of blocks, but he is dangerously close to the second coming of Steph Curry that few wanted to believe in. Jeff Teague started this game since the Hawks were without De'Andre Hunter (left ankle sprain) and Cam Reddish (concussion, nose contusion), and he lit it up with 18 points, one rebound, six assists, four steals and even a pair of dunks. Don't get used to this, but it's good to see that Teague can still get it done.
