Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford looked great again on Friday against the Magic with 17 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

He made his fifth trey of the season, which is the most he's made in any season of his career. Horford is doing it all and has become a nine-category contributor in some capacity. He's holding third-round value on the season and his owners should stand pat.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford filled the stat sheet against the Pacers on Monday with 25 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

He's been putting up some quiet scoring games and only averaged 8.0 points per game in his previous three, but the other stats have been there for him. Horford's minutes are creeping up little by little as the year has gone on, so his fantasy owners can realistically hope he becomes a top-20 guy.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford made 5-of-9 from the field for 11 points with eight boards, three assists and three blocks in 33 minutes.

To the untrained eye, this looks like a boring line, but the blocks, efficiency and dimes were big for Horford. That's pretty much his calling card for his fantasy owners and has No. 41 per-game value despite just 12.9 points per game. He should get better, too.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford played 29 minutes, but hit just 2-of-3 shots for six points, two rebounds, three assists and a block in Wednesday's win over the Heat.

Opposing centers generally torch the Heat, but that wasn't the case tonight, as Horford was pretty awful. He's really struggling right now, scoring 11 or fewer points in three of his last four games, and averaging just 13.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.8 blocks over his last five.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford was quiet in an easy win over Charlotte on Saturday, finishing with 11 points, four boards, two assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes.

He was on his way to a big game but the Hawks didn't need him by the end of the first quarter. Horford has been great this season and owners who took a risk on the injury-prone big man have to love what they have seen so far. Expect him to get his normal share of minutes in a tough game against Boston Tuesday.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford made 11-of-16 from the field for 23 points against the Raptors on Wednesday with nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 32 minutes.

He had foul trouble on Tuesday in one of his worst games of the year, but Horford is starting to see his shots go up. It's just the second time he's been over 20 points all season, and there should be more of those games as he gets into a rhythm. Even with the low scoring of 13.3 points per game, Horford was still putting up third-round value.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford was limited by foul trouble during Tuesday's game, playing only 23 minutes and finishing with seven points, seven boards, two assists and one block.

He made 3-of-4 shots and it wasn't a total bust for fantasy owners, who should take his rare foul-plagued dud in stride. He'd scored double-digit points in four straight games prior to Tuesday and should begin a new streak vs. Toronto on Wednesday.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford will continue to wear a compression shirt under his jersey, saying that it's "actually helped [him] a lot" as he returns from pectoral surgery.

"I never really wanted to wear it," Horford said. "My trainers thought it was a good idea to help me. I was getting very stiff at times. With the shirt I notice it keeps it warm, keeps it tight." Horford is quietly returning to form, averaging 13.8 points on 54.2 percent shooting, 6.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.2 blocks per game, good enough for top-40 fantasy value.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford made 7-of-8 field goals on Tuesday, including one 3-pointer, to finish a tough loss vs. L.A. with 15 points, eight rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

Horford hasn't played 30+ minutes or taken 10+ shots in any of the Hawks' past four games. He's averaging just 13.7 points and 6.7 rebounds this season but he's likely just off to a slow start after missing many months following pectoral surgery. Fantasy owners should view this is a buy-low opportunity for Horford, who will need to play a bigger role for Atlanta to emerge as a legitimate playoff threat.
Nov 18 - 10:07 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford made 8-of-10 from the field for 19 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in just 28 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

He's started slow, but the jumper was working tonight in a big way. Despite the slow start, he's already put up fourth-round value and he should approach top-20 value as long as he's healthy.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford acknowledged during a recent interview that he's had a slow start to the season.

"I'm getting there, it's a process getting back rhythm and feeling good," said Horford. "I just have to keep playing games; it's a matter of time. It's being able to sustain long periods of time on the court. I find myself at times being a little fatigued." Owners who drafted Horford shouldn't have expected him to come flying out of the gates, as he missed all but 29 games last season with a torn pectoral muscle. Horford has shown flashes of his former self, but it's been a bit of a bumpy ride so far. He's averaging 13.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.4 blocks, and 1.0 steal per game, and he should only get better as the year progresses, so this looks like a solid buy-low opportunity for one of fantasy basketball’s more underrated big men.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford had just eight points, four rebounds and a block in Wednesday's loss.

Paul Millsap was a man amongst boys tonight and didn't leave much food on the table for Horford. He's having a nice season and will bounce back, but took a backseat to Millsap so that he could go off against his former team.
Nov 12 - 10:24 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford had his least productive game of the season in a 103-96 win over the Knicks on Saturday, scoring six points with six boards and three assists in 30 minutes.

He shot just 3-of-13 from the field and didn't add any defensive stats. Horford was filling it up everywhere before tonight with season averages of 16.5 points, 8.5 boards, 3.3 dimes, 1.8 blocks and 1.5 steals on 52.5 percent from the field, so his owners don't have anything to complain about.
Nov 8 - 11:42 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 24 points on 11-of-16 shooting with 10 rebounds, three steals and one block in Friday's double-overtime loss.

Horford has been playing to expectations and nobody was even counting on a fast start, but that's exactly what he's done.
