Jeff Teague hit 6-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, three rebounds, 11 assists and two steals in Wednesday's easy win over the Pacers.
The Hawks are now 28-2 over their last 30 games and coach Mike Budenholzer clinched the Eastern All-Star coaching job with tonight's win. And it would be almost shocking if he doesn't take Jeff Teague and Al Horford (and maybe Kyle Korver) with him as coach's picks. Jan 22 - 12:16 AM

Jeff Teague scored 22 points with one rebound, six assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers against the Celtics on Wednesday.

The Hawks held him out on Tuesday for some much deserved rest. Teague has been a top-five player in 2015 for fantasy leagues and it has a lot to do with him being able to beat guys off the dribble and finishing around the rim. That type of stuff is going to help Teague stay consistent and a little team ball movement never hurt anyone. He's likely going to remain a top-10 guard in fantasy.
Jan 15 - 12:31 AM

Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll will start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

They had their rest and should be ready to rock in a favorable matchup. Make sure you have them in your lineup, especially Teague and Millsap.
Jan 14 - 6:53 PM

Jeff Teague (rest), DeMarre Carroll (rest), and Paul Millsap (rest) are all out for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

The Hawks don't need these guys for a game against the Sixers, but this news is a bit shocking with the Hawks taking a Spurs-like approach to tonight's game. Dennis Schroder, Thabo Sefolosha, and Mike Muscla will slide into the starting lineup, and Schroder, Kyle Korver, and Al Horford look like quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues.
Jan 13 - 6:03 PM

Jeff Teague struggled from the field during Sunday's blowout win over the Wizards, hitting 4-of-12 shots for 11 points (one 3-pointer), with 10 assists, four steals, two rebounds, and zero turnovers.

While the low scoring total was a bit disappointing, he salvaged the line with the steals, assists, and zero turnovers. Teague is having a fantastic season, hitting career-highs in points (17.5) and steals (1.7), while offering a respectable 7.2 assists per game and hitting 48.6 percent of his shots. He's an all-star candidate, and has been a key guy leading the Hawks to an impressive 29-8 record.
Jan 11 - 7:03 PM

Jeff Teague is aiming to win his second consecutive Eastern Conference Player of the Week after torching the Grizzlies for 25 points, three rebounds, six assists, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers.

Teague has scored at least 20 points in six straight games and the Hawks are now tied with the Blazers for the second-best record in the NBA at 27-8. Teague helped the Hawks go on a late 10-0 run to put the game away and Kyle Korver's fourth 3-pointer of the night was a dagger. Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer is the clear favorite to coach the East in the All-Star Game next month, and if it happens, it would be almost shocking if he doesn't bring Teague along with him.
Jan 8 - 12:16 AM

Jeff Teague was phenomenal against the Clippers on Monday with 20 points, four rebounds, nine assists, four steals and three 3-pointers in a 107-98 win.

Fresh off an NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week, Teague made Chris Paul look like Cliff Paul today. He is dominating over his last five, averaging 23.2 points, 4.8 boards, 8.2 assists, 2.6 steals and 1.4 triples on 52.1 percent from the field. At this rate, he's going to make the All-Star team.
Jan 6 - 2:03 AM

Jeff Teague scored 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting (2-of-4 3PTs, 6-of-7 FTs) with four rebounds, eight assists and three steals in Friday's win over the Jazz.

Teague is quietly putting things together in both fantasy and reality as he's in the midst of a top 15-20 season. Paul Millsap had a strange night in which he hit just 2-of-11 shots from the field but 10-of-10 from the line, finishing with 15 and 11 to go with four assists and a three. Al Horford put up a quiet 13 and five but rounded his line out with a steal and two blocks, and Kyle Korver scored nine points with eight boards, one steal and one three in the win.
Jan 3 - 2:45 AM

Jeff Teague scored 25 points in a 90-85 win over the Bucks on Saturday with eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Needless to say, he's back. Teague missed three games earlier this month and played in just 24 minutes in each of his last two games. He was playing well before the injury and he should keep the ball rolling against the Cavs on Tuesday.

Jeff Teague returned to the starting lineup for the Hawks in their blowout loss to the Bucks on Friday, scoring 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting (no threes) with zero rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in 24 minutes.

This is a great line considering the circumstances and he should be in all lineups going forward.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 02:06:00 AM

Jeff Teague is set to return to the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Bucks, according to plugged in beat reporter Chris Vivlamore.

There was simply no way that Dennis Schroder was going to stick with the starting unit for long with Teague healthy, and it looks like he'll head to the bench on Friday ending his days of standard league relevancy. Teague was putting up early-round value before going down, and is a must-start guy every time he's in uniform. Go ahead and get him active.

Jeff Teague (hamstring) came off the Hawks' bench on Tuesday and finished with nine points, one 3-pointer, two rebounds and six assists in 24 minutes, while posting a team-best +/- rating of +23.

Dennis Schroder earned another start at PG, but he had only five points, four assists, four turnovers and a team-worst +/- rating of -18. Teague could regain the starting job as soon as Friday (vs. Milwaukee) or Saturday (at Milwaukee), and it shouldn't take long for his minutes to return to the 30-32 range he's been averaging all season.

Jeff Teague (hamstring) will come off the bench for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Dennis Schroder has been excellent filling in for Teague while he was sidelined, and it looks like the Hawks are going to ease Teague back into the rotation. Still, given Teague's upside, he's pretty much a must-start guy when in uniform. We'll let you know if any word comes out of a minutes restriction.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 06:08:00 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is probable to play against the Clippers on Tuesday.

He missed the last week and the Hawks did not miss him whatsoever, winning all three games against teams expected to make the playoffs in the Mavericks, Rockets and Cavs. It's unknown if Teague will play less than his 31.3 minutes per game, but it's not a wild idea considering how well Dennis Schroder played. Still, Teague can be placed back into fantasy lineups and those who added Schroder might want to make other plans.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 01:02:00 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) will not play on Monday night against the Mavericks.

He is without a timetable and could miss additional games. Teague was outstanding before his injury and was close to being a No. 1 fantasy point guard, but the Hawks are just fine with Dennis Schroder and Shelvin Mack. Schroder is worth a look in daily leagues in a favorable matchup.
