Al Horford scored 18 points on 8-of-11 from the field against the Nets during a 90-88 loss on Tuesday, adding five rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers.
Horford has been unbelievably good this year with first-round fantasy value on the season. He's made 1.3 treys per game and is knocking down 36.2 percent of his attempts from that range. As long as he stays healthy, he's looking like a lock for top-20 value and probably top 15, too. Nov 17 - 11:36 PM

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford filled the stat sheet on Sunday with 16 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and only one turnover.

He kept the Hawks within striking distance with four straight makes down the stretch, including a pair of 3-pointers, and his perimeter range is for real. More than two weeks into the season, no center in the league has greater 9-cat roto value than Horford.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford handed out eight assists during a 106-93 loss to Boston on Friday, adding 13 points, six boards, one steal, two blocks, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

He's basically the center version of Kawhi Leonard for his ability to just stuff the stat sheet and not hurt you anywhere. Horford is knocking down over one trey per game and has been a top-10 player in standard leagues. He really just needs to stay healthy to be a bargain.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored a team-high 26 points vs. New Orleans, making 11-of-15 field goals including a career-high four 3-pointers.

He added eight rebounds, three assists and three blocks in just 30 minutes, but the four 3s are what will demand his owners' attention. Horford is now averaging 0.9 triples on the season, so this isn't a total fluke, and he's surged into the top-12 for overall 9-cat value.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford posted another efficient, across-the-board line during Wednesday's victory, scoring 21 points with one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, four assists, two blocks and zero turnovers.

He made 8-of-10 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs in only 30 minutes of action -- throw in a steal or two and this would have been a pristine nine-cat line. We've rightfully been lavishing praise on Paul Millsap (12 points, nine boards, three assists, five steals) but Horford is also off to a great start. The arrival of Tiago Splitter has enabled Horford to play PF with Millsap at SF for stretches, and the early results are very encouraging.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford put up a double-double during the Hawks' thrilling win over the Hornets on Sunday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-14 shooting (2-of-2 from the stripe) to go with 12 rebounds, one assist, three blocks and three turnovers in 35 minutes of action.

Interestingly, Horford also attempted five shots from beyond the arc, and while he didn't connect on any of him, it's worth noting that he's already attempted 13 three-pointers on the season. He shot just 36 three-pointers through the entirety of the 2014-15 season, so he's on track to greatly eclipse that total, and if they start falling it would add yet another dimension to what is already a near perfect fantasy game. His shot blocking is also up during the early goings of the 2015-16 season, so there's potential here for a top-15 finish. Enjoy the ride.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 18 points with six rebounds, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers against the Hornets on Friday.

He's in a great rhythm on offense and the added time at power forward is helping his offensive potential. Horford should be a top-20 player in standard leagues.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford was terrific against the Knicks on Thursday with 21 points, nine rebounds, one assist, two steals, three blocks and two 3-pointers.

That's quite a line right there. The Hawks played him at power forward a little more tonight and he destroyed the Knicks in the post. He was also very good on long twos, so the added 3-pointers are no fluke. Horford is a fantasy stud and should be a second-round guy in standard leagues.
Oct 30 - 12:41 AM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 15 points with four boards, four assists, two steals and three blocks in Tuesday's loss to the Pistons.

Horford also added a 3-pointer to his name, and his owners will be thrilled to see the steal and block totals in a game that didn't have too many positive moments from Atlanta. Horford will now look forward to an intriguing matchup with the Knicks on Thursday.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford, Paul Millsap, Kyle Korver and Tiago Splitter will not play vs. the Pistons on Friday for rest purposes.

None of them traveled as the Hawks are just giving their veterans the day off. Horford is as steady as they come and just needs to stay healthy in order to be an elite fantasy option.
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford hit 5-of-10 shots (including a three) for 16 points, five rebounds, two steals and one block in Friday's preseason win over the Mavs.

Horford has been taking (and making) threes this preseason and hit his only look tonight. He's 5-of-10 from deep in four games and though we're encouraged by this development, we'd be happy if he hit a half of a three per game and anything else beyond that would be icing on the cake.
Oct 17 - 12:23 AM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford worked on his 3-point range all offseason in order to help the team.

With Horford expecting to see more time at power forward this season now that Tiago Spliter is on the roster, Horford has worked on his ability to stretch the floor. A career 32.3 percent shooter from deep, Horford quietly attempted 107 triples in 2014-15. Expect that number to rise this time around, and as usual, he's currently being undervalued in fantasy drafts.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 10 points with five rebounds, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Pelicans during a 103-93 win on Friday.

Horford more than doubled his career high last season with 11 treys and the early indications are that he could double it yet again. He's certainly going to play more power forward this year and has a terrific style for standard fantasy leagues. You might be able to sneak him in the late second round.
Oct 9 - 9:45 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford said he'll wait until after the season to discuss a new contract.

Horford said he wanted to focus on the season rather than have the distraction of contract discussions hanging over him and will table talks until the offseason. This is good news for fantasy owners as the 29-year-old is focused on a big 2014-15 season. While he comes with injury risks, Horford has the ability to provide top-20 fantasy value and could be a mid-round steal if he drops a round or two.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford will not play with the Dominican Republic this summer.

Horford has instead decided to focus on the upcoming NBA season as he heads into a contract year. Horford has had some injury issues throughout his career, so he'll likely come at a depressed value for fantasy owners on draft day. The 29-year-old has been a top-20 fantasy player when healthy, however, and could be a mid-round steal for fantasy owners willing to assume some risk.
