Dennis Schroder scored 24 points and handed out 10 assists vs. Denver on Wednesday, hitting 10-of-19 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with three steals and three turnovers in 35 minutes.
Schroder threw a couple of gorgeous halfcourt alley-oops to Tim Hardaway Jr. in the first half, and Denver's backcourt didn't have any answers for his speed tonight. He tied his career-high with 18 points in the first half alone, and is now shooting 53.3 percent from the field in Atlanta's past three games. It's a welcome turn of events from the career 43.2 percent shooter, who had been ice cold prior to this hot streak. Feb 9 - 12:12 AM

Dennis Schroder scored five points with three assists and two rebounds in 21 minutes on Thursday against the Rockets.

It was another frustrating night for Schroder, as he shot just 17 percent from the field. It's been a common theme for him lately, as he has shot just 35 percent from the field over his last five games. The Rockets did a good job keeping him out of the paint tonight and he didn't see much run in the fourth quarter as coach Mike Budenholzer went with the hot lineup that erased a 20-point deficit to close out the game. Schroder looks to turn it around on Saturday against the Magic, who are yielding the fourth most fantasy points per game to point guards. He is averaging 18.5 points and 10 assists per game against Orlando this season.

Dennis Schroder double-doubled in a quadruple overtime win over the Knicks on Sunday, registering 23 points, four boards, 15 assists, one 3-pointer and six turnovers in 55 minutes.

It was a mixed bag for Schroder who recorded a career-high in dimes, but also went just 9-of-25 from the field and 3-of-5 from the stripe. Points and dimes typically aren’t a problem for Schroder, but the turnovers (3.0) and a lack of defensive statistics (0.8 steals per game) has held him down to a late-round evaluation on the year in standard 9-cat leagues. Schroder did appear to tweak his hand in this one, but he played through it, so he should be fine for Wednesday's game in Miami.
Jan 29 - 7:05 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 24 points against the Bulls on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, nine assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He likes to play against the Bulls with a 25-point game coming on Jan. 20 in a win at home. Schroder was in the doghouse two weekends ago, but now he's played at least 31 minutes in each of his last three. Schroder's inconsistency can be frustrating, but he's been very effective besides that two-game benching run. He has eighth-round value in January.
Jan 26 - 1:07 AM

Dennis Schroder hit 7-of-18 shots, a 3-pointer and 6-of-6 free throws for 21 points, six rebounds and seven assists in 34 minutes of Monday's 115-105 loss to the Clippers.

He only had two turnovers and has been killing it lately, averaging 20.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.0 3-pointers on 55 percent shooting over his last five games. If he was a little better at stealing the ball he'd be a little closer to "elite" instead of above average when it comes to NBA point guards in fantasy.
Jan 23 - 10:23 PM

Dennis Schroder was in control against the Bulls during a 102-93 win on Friday, making 11-of-14 from the field for 25 points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in just 27 minutes.

Since he was benched last weekend for two games, Schroder looks to be back. In those three games, he's averaged 22.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 0.3 steals and 1.0 treys on 70.7 percent from the field. He'll have another slump at some point, but that's just who he is. Expect him to be around mid-round value.
Jan 21 - 2:09 AM

Dennis Schroder bounced back against the Knicks on Monday during a 108-107 win, scoring 28 points with three rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

This was a huge game for him. Schroder has plenty of blemishes in his time in MSG. He was a DNP-CD last year and he also didn't close out in a previous game this season. Schroder also didn't close out in the previous two games, but he did today and hit a massive 3-pointer to get the win. After a brief drop off, Schroder looks like he's back.
Jan 16 - 4:30 PM

Dennis Schroder had a game to forget on Sunday, committing five turnovers with six points, six assists and two rebounds in 24 minutes of action.

This marks Schroder's second straight dud, and it's not encouraging that backup PG Malcolm Delaney has been great in both of those games. The Hawks have been streaking lately and coach Mike Budenholzer isn't afraid to ride the hot hand, but there's no cause for panic here. Schroder should get back on track in a matchup vs. Derrick Rose and the Knicks on Monday.
Jan 15 - 7:55 PM

The rivalry between Dennis Schroder and Isaiah Thomas escalated during the Celtics victory over the Hawks on Friday night.

Schroder played poorly on Saturday (four points, three rebounds, three assists) while Thomas excelled (28 points, four rebounds, nine assists) and hit the game-winner. Afterward, Schroder said: "If he thinks that he got to curse at my mom or say some dumb stuff about my family, that has nothing to do with basketball. That’s his choice. I’ve got too much class for that. Next one, we are going to get it." Mark down Feb. 27 on your calendars, as that's the next time the C's and Hawks meet up.
Jan 14 - 9:45 AM

Dennis Schroder played just 23 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with four points, three rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

He did not close this game out in what was obviously his worst game in a long time. We've seen Schroder getting in coach Mike Budenholzer's doghouse before, but it hasn't happened too much this season. Perhaps he was just worked up based on his comments about Isaiah Thomas before the game because of an incident last year. "If he don’t slap me, nothing is going to happen," he said. Expect him to bounce back on Sunday against the Bucks.
Jan 14 - 12:27 AM

Dennis Schroder scored 19 points with 10 assists on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

The PG is doing just fine without Kyle Korver out there to space the floor, as Tim Hardaway Jr. and Taurean Prince have stepped up. Schroder hit 7-of-14 shots with a couple treys in 30 minutes tonight, adding one rebound and two steals. He's now scored 18+ points in four straight games and the Hawks are rolling with seven straight wins.
Jan 10 - 10:08 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 23 points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

You would think that having the recently-traded Kyle Korver on the court would help Schroder's efficiency for the extra space. Well, you'd be wrong because Schroder's true shooting percentage is 6.7 percentage points better without him than with him. Although, his assist percentage is almost cut in half. Schroder will be fine regardless.
Jan 5 - 11:32 PM

Dennis Schroder had another impressive performance during Wednesday's road victory, posting 18 points with seven assists, six rebounds, one steal and three turnovers.

Schroder went 7-of-13 from the field and efficiency has been the story of his season -- his previous career-best from the field was 42.7 percent, but this season he's up to 46.3 percent (including 35.5 percent from deep). His 3.1 turnovers take a toll, but for 8-cat purposes he's cruising along with mid-round value.
Jan 4 - 10:09 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 27 points vs. the Knicks on Wednesday with five assists, two steals and one triple in 40 minutes.

He's been a stud in his previous 12 December games with averages of 20.1 points, 7.1 assists, 3.1 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.3 triples on 51.6 percent shooting and was able to keep it going in a great matchup with Derrick Rose tonight. Schroder hit 11-of-21 shots from the field and 4-of-6 from the line, and he's now scored 20 or more points in four out of his last five games.

Dennis Schroder stayed hot on Friday against the Nuggets, hitting 9-of-19 shots, two 3-pointes and 7-of-7 free throws for 27 points, six rebounds, five assists and a steal in 36 minutes of a 109-108 win over the Nuggets.

The Hawks needed all of those free throws and Schroder was clutch down the stretch. The Hawks outscored the Nuggets 9-0 in the final three minutes, all free throws, and Schroder has scored in double figures in all 15 games since scoring nine points on Nov. 23. He's particularly hot right now, scoring at least 21 points in four of his last five games, and averaging 23 points and 6.4 assists over his last five. He banged up his left hand tonight, but threw away the wrap and played through it down the stretch. It doesn't look like anything to worry about.
