Key Players

We've broken down player data for key Atlanta Hawks fantasy basketball players including projections, projections per 36 minutes, last season's averages, and last season's averages when playing between 20-30 minutes as well as between 30-40 minutes.

Dennis Schroder (PG)

Dennis will get all of the usage he wants this season, and while his FG% might take a small hit and his turnovers might go up a touch, he's going to produce good numbers in other categories.

Dewayne Dedmon (C)

Dedmon looks to be the opening night starter, but don't expect him to be playing 30+ minutes a night. He's still valuable in a 22-26 minute a night role as you can see in the tablel below.

Taurean Prince (SF)

Prince has the potential to exceed his baseline projections and has the potential to go 1-1-1 (3PM-STL-BLK). It just comes down to whether he can handle the added pressure of playing big minutes every night.

John Collins (PF)

Rookies are traditionally slow starters in the fantasy season, so don't expect him to be putting up decent numbers until January, but he'll be filling up the state sheet once he does (as you can see from his PER/36 projections below).
