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. Dec 28 - 12:34 AM

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.

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.
Dec 23 - 6:08 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.
Dec 23 - 1:02 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.
Dec 22 - 7:38 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is doubtful to play on Monday against the Mavericks, and there is no timetable for his return.

Teague hasn't been able to suit up since last week, and it doesn't appear he's getting close yet. Dennis Schroder will draw another start in Teague's place, and he's averaging 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 8.0 assists and 2.5 turnovers in a tiny two-game sample size.
Dec 22 - 1:20 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's game against the Rockets, meaning Dennis Schroder will draw another start.

Teague was considered doubtful heading into this game, so owners should have seen this coming. Teague should be considered day-to-day moving forward, and we will update his status as soon as we know more. Dennis Schroder will draw another start on Saturday, but he will unfortunately get the Patrick Beverley treatment. Shelvin Mack will also see a boost off of the bench, and is coming off a career-high 24 points on Wednesday.

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is still listed as doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Rockets.

Even if he was active, he would have gotten the Patrick Beverley treatment so owners can go ahead and bench him. Consider him day-to-day for now and expect Dennis Schroder to draw another start. Shelvin Mack will also see some extra run as well, and just scored a career-high 24 points on Wednesday. Both players are worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of short-term value.

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is doubtful to play on Saturday against the Rockets.

It's clear the Hawks are not going to rush him back, which makes sense considering how many players have aggravated their hamstring strains this season -- David Lee and Patrick Beverley, for example. His fantasy owners should just bench him and expect him back next week. Dennis Schroder gets a date with Patrick Beverley while Shelvin Mack will also get some run.
Dec 19 - 3:23 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) will not play on Wednesday night against the Cavs.

He could miss additional time with the Hawks in the playoff hunt and all the hamstring aggravations this season. While Teague is out, Dennis Schroder is going to be a lot of fun to watch while Shelvin Mack also gets some extra playing time. Schroder is a very attractive daily play tonight and is worth a look for short-term value.
Dec 17 - 5:42 PM

Coach Mike Budenholzer said on Wednesday that the Hawks will "monitor [Jeff Teague] (hamstring, doubtful) over the next day or so and hope for the best."

It sounds like he's out for tonight against the Cavs, but the Hawks are off until Saturday following tonight. Dennis Schroder is the favorite to pick up value, and his usage rate of 25.5 to go with a 32.4 assist percentage while he's out there bode very well for his outlook tonight. Shelvin Mack will also see a boost.
Dec 17 - 2:20 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

Teague is said to be dealing with a left hamstring strain, and reportedly suffered the injury in Monday's game vs. the Bulls. Owners will want to check back prior to tip-off to confirm this news, but it appears that Dennis Schroder will likely get the nod in the starting lineup Wednesday. Owners in deeper leagues should pick up Schroder as a speculative add for short-term value, and should also give him a look as a sneaky daily plug-and-play.
Dec 17 - 1:22 PM

Jeff Teague scored a game-high 24 points against the Magic during a 100-99 loss on Saturday, adding three rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He had a mini-slump coming into tonight, averaging just 8.5 points per game. Teague's offense has come around and he's improved off the dribble a ton, so there's no signs of him regressing. He's been a top-30 player on the season and should stay in that neighborhood, especially considering how well he's playing with Al Horford.
