Jeff Teague and the Hawks were crushed on Saturday in a 127-94 loss in Cleveland with Teague posting a line of just five points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.
Basically the entire starting five was a letdown with Al Horford also coming up short with just 12 points, four rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes. Teague and Horford will be fine and should be in all fantasy starting lineups against the Lakers on Tuesday. Although, the Hawks do only have two games this week. Nov 15 - 10:21 PM

Jeff Teague made 5-of-11 from the field for 16 points during a 114-103 win over the Heat on Friday with one rebound, nine assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He didn't have any 3-pointers in his previous three games, which has been his biggest bugaboo so far this season. Teague is only holding mid-round value, but he should get a little better and flirt with top-40 value.
Nov 14 - 11:43 PM

Jeff Teague bounced back from an off night with 20 points, eight assists and three steals on 7-of-12 shooting.

He was a disaster on Monday with three points and six dimes, but looked much better against Trey Burke tonight. Teague's only had one bad night thus season and looks like he should be a very reliable fantasy point guard all year long.
Nov 12 - 10:25 PM

Jeff Teague played 25 minutes but was benched in favor of Dennis Schroder in the final four minutes of Monday's win over the Knicks, finishing with three points, zero rebounds, six assists and one block.

Teague went 0-for-4 from the field and Schroder played very well with 14 points, four rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes off the bench. We'll keep an eye out for any injury talk but Mike Budenholzer is probably just lighting a fire under Teague. For his part, Teague has been a solid mid-round value even when you include this stinker.
Nov 10 - 10:33 PM

Jeff Teague scored 19 points against the Knicks on Saturday with two rebounds, five assists, one steal, one turnovers and two fouls in 35 minutes.

He's just a different player when Al Horford is healthy. Teague started hot last season and fizzled out in the 2014 part of the campaign, so perhaps he'll be able to keep it going. He entered tonight with seasons averages of 18.0 points, 2.8 boards, 9.0 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.8 triples, which is currently shattering his value at his ADP.
Nov 8 - 11:36 PM

Jeff Teague hit just 9-of-23 shots but still turned in a dandy with 22 points, four rebounds, 15 assists, a block and a three in Friday's double-overtime loss.

Teague is giving the ball away too much with 4.3 turnovers per game, but in 8-cat leagues he has produced top-15 value this season. He's playing a bit over his head but maybe this is the season that he finally taps into the potential. Al Horford added 24 points on 11-of-16 shooting with 10 rebounds, three steals and one block in the loss.
Nov 8 - 12:24 AM

Jeff Teague cooled off in a 94-92 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday, making 2-of-8 from the field for five points with seven assists, one steal and five turnovers.

On the last play of the game, Teague was trapped and had to pass it to Pero Antic for a near halfcourt shot. On the bright side, Teague was flirting with first-round value on a per-game basis before tonight, so his owners shouldn't be overly concerned.
Nov 6 - 12:41 AM

Jeff Teague hit 8-of-12 shots for 20 points, three rebounds, eight assists, three steals and a 3-pointer in Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.

He looked just as we expect Teague to look like, except for the six turnovers he committed. He's going to be a fun point guard to own this season and here's to hoping the six TOs end up being his season high.
Oct 29 - 11:54 PM

Jeff Teague hit 8-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 21 points, one assist and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Spurs.

Teague doesn't get the love the big-named point guards do, and for good reason. But when it comes to that second tier of point guards, he's going to possibly finish near the top of the list. And if he continues to improve, he could end up being consistent enough to battle a guy like Kyle Lowry for productivity. But he has a long way to go before that happens. The return of Al Horford should help Teague start to take that next step.
Oct 22 - 11:37 PM

Jeff Teague double-doubled in Saturday's 104-100 loss to the Pistons with 16 points, 10 assists, four rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

He's a different player with Al Horford out there, so he should have a nice bounce-back season. Teague is a very strong No. 2 point guard and is capable of being a top-10 guy for his position.
Oct 18 - 11:31 PM

Jeff Teague needs corrective eyewear this season, and he's experimenting with both contacts and prescription goggles during the preseason.

"I prefer to wear the goggles," Teague said. "The goggles were pretty good [during Tuesday's practice]. We’ll see." Teague averaged 16.5 points last season but his shooting dipped to 43.8 percent, including 32.9 percent from downtown. He's an undervalued PG who is typically available in the middle rounds, and improved vision would be a bonus for his fantasy owners.
Sep 30 - 6:22 PM

Jeff Teague admitted that to become an elite NBA point guard he will "probably need to get stronger" during the offseason.

Teague averaged 16.5 points, 0.9 threes, 6.7 assists and 1.1 steals per game while guiding the Hawks into the postseason, and feels that he took his game to "another level" thanks to coach Mike Budenholzer. "Honestly, he just put the ball in my hands," Teague said. "He told me to play and enjoy it. He believes in every one of us." After another offseason getting familiar with his teammates and coaches, Teague should be poised for an even bigger campaign in 2014-15.
May 7 - 9:46 AM

Jeff Teague made just 5-of-16 from the field for 16 points during Saturday's 92-80 loss to the Pacers, adding three boards, three assists, two steals, one block and five turnovers.

The entire Hawks team had just 10 turnovers and Teague just didn't have it today. They set a playoff record with a ridiculous 44 attempts from deep, making just 11 of them. Teague, Paul Millsap, Pero Antic and DeMarre Carroll missed all 15 of their attempts from beyond the arc and many of those were wide-open looks. Considering the volume of shots at 92, this is one of the worst shooting games in the history of the NBA playoffs. As for Teague, he'll have little competition next season and still has room to grow at just 25 years old.
May 3 - 8:28 PM

Jeff Teague scored a game-high 29 points during Thursday's 95-88 loss to the Pacers with three boards, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

He made 9-of-21 from the field and the Hawks shot 35.8 percent as a team. They attempted a whopping 22 attempts from beyond the arc in the first half, finishing at 9-of-35 from that range in the game. Teague has gained a lot of confidence and he'll have a ton of responsibilities for Saturday's Game 7 in Indiana.
May 1 - 10:19 PM

Jeff Teague had 14 points, two 3-pointers, six rebounds and seven assists in the Hawks' Game 4 defeat, but he shot just 5-of-15 from the field with four turnovers and zero steals.

Six of Teague's shots came within five feet of the hoop, but his mid-range struggles mirrored the Hawks as a whole -- they got some points in the paint and went a whopping 11-of-31 from downtown, but made only five buckets between 5-24 feet from the hoop. They'll try to regain control of the series during Game 5 on Monday.
