John Jenkins stepped up with a season-high 17 points in his third start of the season on Sunday, making 6-of-12 shots with two 3-pointers in place of Kyle Korver (rest).

He stole the ball three times while adding three rebounds and two assists without any turnovers in 35 minutes, and the offense should be enough to satisfy fantasy owners who rolled the dice on him today. Korver is due back on Monday so this was likely a one-night-only show from Jenkins.
Apr 12 - 8:52 PM

John Jenkins will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Wizards with Kyle Korver (rest) unavailable.

The Hawks will go with a starting lineup of Dennis Schroder, Jenkins, Kent Bazemore, Mike Muscala, and Elton Brand as they do their best 76ers impersonation. Through two starts this season, Jenkins has put in averages of 12.0 points and 2.5 three-pointers per game, so he makes sense as a streamer option for owners in deep leagues trying to close the gap in the 3-point category.
Apr 12 - 4:48 PM

John Jenkins (illness) returned to action on Friday, playing five minutes with six points, two boards and two 3-pointers.

Jenkins might be worth a look if there are mass DNPs, but let's see that happen before entertaining any talk of real fantasy value.
Apr 10 - 11:13 PM

John Jenkins (illness) will not play against the Nets on Wednesday.

The Hawks are on a road back-to-back game tonight, so there could be a lot of players resting tonight. If that's the case, there should be a lot of minutes available for Shelvin Mack and Kent Bazemore.
Apr 8 - 4:27 PM

John Jenkins drew the start against the Hornets on Saturday with 16 points, one rebound, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He was busy on offense as the main floor spacer in halfcourt and played more minutes than any other backcourt Hawk. Jenkins is probably going to have some sneaky value in deep leagues, but he's probably about fourth on the pecking order for Hawk adds behind Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore and Mike Muscala.
Mar 28 - 9:22 PM

Dennis Schroder, John Jenkins, Kent Bazemore, Mike Muscala and Elton Brand will start against the Hornets on Saturday.

The only mild surprise is Jenkins starting over Shelvin Mack and Thabo Sefolosha at shooting guard. Sefolosha only played 10.0 minutes per game in his last two, so he's likely still on a minutes limit. Expect Mack to get around 15 minutes at point guard with 10-15 more minutes coming at the shooting guard spot. Bazemore should see see 32-36 minutes and could get double-digit shot attempts with other stats, as well. Muscala could also be a threat for a double-double and is worth a look in daily leagues.
Mar 28 - 5:33 PM

John Jenkins (wrist strain) is probable for Friday's game against the Suns.

Jenkins isn't a major part of the Hawks rotation, so whether he plays or not should be of no concern to owners in standard leagues.
Mar 12 - 4:09 PM

John Jenkins, Mike Muscala and Kent Bazemore will start against the 76ers on Saturday.

They're starting for Paul Millsap, DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver. Among these three starters, Bazemore is probably the most intriguing of the bunch. Mike Scott will likely get minutes in the 20s and should have a high enough shot total to make a splash for owners looking to stream.
Mar 7 - 6:04 PM

John Jenkins has been recalled from the D-League.

He'll return to his standard role of bench warmer in Atlanta, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Jan 20 - 6:55 PM

John Jenkins and Adreian Payne have been sent down for a D-League stint.

Neither of these guys are part of the Hawks rotation, so there aren't any fantasy implications with this news. Leave them on the wire.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 04:53:00 PM

John Jenkins started the second half on Saturday against the Cavs, scoring a total of 12 points with one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

The Hawks were out of this game at half and Jenkins started over Kyle Korver. Jenkins has been on the inactive list for much of the season and is not worth owning in almost any league.
Sat, Nov 15, 2014 10:16:00 PM

The Hawks have declined to pickup their fourth-year team option on John Jenkins.

Jenkins will now become an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season, however, he's not a rotation player for the Hawks and can safely be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Fri, Oct 31, 2014 10:56:00 AM

John Jenkins will start at shooting guard in place of Kyle Korver (personal) on Monday.

He's been playing without limitations and tonight is going to be a huge game for his chances to get minutes. Jenkins had back surgery in February and suffered an aggravation at summer league. Fantasy owners can ignore him in most leagues.
Mon, Oct 6, 2014 12:21:00 PM

John Jenkins (back) is playing without limitations.

He played at summer league back in July, but the team kept his minutes in check due to back surgery in February. Jenkins probably won't be in the rotation to start the year and has very little fantasy value.
