The Hawks are reportedly considering trading away their core players of Al Horford, Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague at the trade deadline.
The Hawks haven't been able to recapture the magic from last year's 60-win season, and it's clear that while they're a playoff team, they are no championship contender. Horford is in a contract year, and Atlanta may not be willing to sign him to a max-deal this offseason. The Magic, Celtics and Nuggets have reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Horford, and Atlanta is also listening to offers on Teague and Millsap. Feb 9 - 2:17 PM

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored a team-high 27 points during a 117-110 overtime loss to the Magic on Monday, adding six rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

He was 12-of-18 from the field and hit both free throws for an eight-category line. Horford was putting up an underwhelming February before this gem, averaging 12.3 points, 5.8 boards, 4.5 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 treys. He's been a top-20 player this year and that should continue.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford struggled with his shot during Sunday's loss to the Magic, going 5-of-15 from the field on his way to 11 points, six rebounds, six assists, two blocks, one 3-pointer and zero turnovers in 35 minutes.

Horford isn’t the most exciting guy to own, but his solid percentages (on most nights), limited turnovers and relatively high assist numbers (3.1) for a big man has him churning out second-round value on the year. He’s also incorporated a 3-point shot to his game, draining 1.0 triple per contest, and he’s yet to miss a single game for Atlanta. He’s the captain of team boring for early-round studs.
Feb 7 - 3:40 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 21 points with seven rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Pacers during a 102-96 win on Friday.

Yes, there is a reason why any team would love to have Horford on their squad. He's grown as a 3-point shooter, is a very good defender and is one of the most efficient players without requiring a high usage. Horford is just coasting along with top-20 value on the season. He also had an awesome dunk (in link below).
Feb 5 - 10:46 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford said he's not concerned with the trade rumors.

"This is my team," Horford said. "I feel like Atlanta is my home so my focus is on the team. I’m not going to pay attention to all of that." He might be the best player who has been even mentioned in trade rumors, but he'll have solid fantasy value wherever he goes for his across-the-board output and stellar efficiency.
Feb 3 - 3:18 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 10 points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

The trade rumors are starting to heat up on Horford with him heading into free agency. Horford is having a great year as an offensive weapon thanks to extending his range. He put up top-15 value last month thanks to doing a little bit of everything.
Feb 1 - 11:33 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

The Celtics are reportedly interested in trading for Al Horford.

The Celtics have a stockpile of assets and are looking to make some noise in the playoffs, and they have also been linked to players such as Jeff Teague and Danilo Gallinari. The Hawks could look to press the "reset button" according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, and Horford could be available because he is on the last year of his deal. Again, nothing is imminent and Horford's value should be safe no matter what.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford had a night to forget on Wednesday, finishing a lopsided loss in Charlotte with only two points on 1-of-4 shooting, two rebounds, one block and four turnovers.

Horford played 28 minutes before sitting out the final quarter of a blowout loss. The Hawks rank fifth in points in the paint (44.9 per game) despite ranking 30th in offensive rebounds (8.8). A lack of interior scoring was a big reason for their blowout loss tonight, as they scored only 32 points in the paint, and Horford was the biggest culprit. He's been a top-15 value on the season (9-cat) and should come out firing vs. the Bucks on Friday.
Jan 13 - 10:29 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored a season-high 33 points against the Bulls during a 120-105 win on Saturday, adding 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal, four blocks and one 3-pointer.

Domination. He destroyed the Bulls on pick-and-roll and he had a great rapport with Jeff Teague. "Al Horford was the man tonight," Teague said. In his last five, Horford averaged 21.4 points, 9.2 boards, 4.2 dimes, 2.2 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys on 63.8 percent from the field -- he has been the best player in fantasy in his last five. This monster run put him back in the first round for value in standard leagues so far.
Jan 9 - 8:24 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 18 points with nine rebounds, three assists, three steals, three blocks, one 3-pointer and no turnovers in 24 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

He's one of the most boring elite players to own in fantasy, but Horford just puts up numbers everywhere. He has second-round value on the season and the Hawks being in the middle of the pack in the standings suggests they'll be much less likely to rest their stars. Also, Horford had a very minor chest muscle scare on Tuesday, but he was totally fine tonight.
Jan 7 - 10:08 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford hit 6-of-13 shots and another 3-pointer for 13 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and two blocks in Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.

He just missed a triple-double by two assists and has hit seven 3-pointers over his last three games. He's averaging 17.0 points, 8.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.6 steals, 1.4 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five games while shooting 58 percent. He's one of the more underrated centers in the league.
Jan 6 - 12:02 AM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford had a quiet game vs. the Knicks on Sunday, scoring 13 points with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, two assists and one block in 32 minutes.

The Hawks' All-Star center blew up for 30 points and 14 boards on Tuesday, but he struggled vs. Robin Lopez tonight. He made 5-of-8 shots but his paltry rebound total contributed to a 32-46 deficit on the glass, contributing to the road loss. Horford will get a chance for revenge when the Knicks visit Atlanta on Tuesday.
Jan 3 - 9:50 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford briefly exited Sunday's game vs. the Knicks with a leg injury, but he's since returned to action.

Crisis averted.
Jan 3 - 4:33 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 30 points on 11-of-15 shooting with a career-high five 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Rockets.

He was a beast in this one and also added 14 boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes. Horford has slowed down a bit since his hot start to the season, but he is still locked in as a top-20 asset in standard leagues. He will have several days off to rest prior to Sunday's game vs. the Knicks.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored a season-low six points with two rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 24 minutes against the Blazers on Monday.

This was easily his worst game of the year and it was just one rebound shy of his season low, too. Plus, this is his first game without a steal or a block this month. Horford will be fine and expect him to turn it around against the Pistons on Wednesday.
