Dennis Schroder will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.
Schroder is averaging 10.9 points, 4.3 assists and 1.1 three-pointers as a reserve this season, so he's not worth owning in standard leagues while he's coming off the bench. His minutes are also being threatened a bit by a healthy Kyle Korver and Thabo Sefolosha, which further limits his appeal. If he's not getting at least 20 minutes per game, he'll be a tough guy to own in most leagues. Nov 24 - 6:45 PM

Dennis Schroder started on Saturday against the Cavs and came off the bench in the second half, finishing with seven points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes.

He was in early foul trouble and Jeff Teague looked fine in his return, so Schroder saw his playing time drop big time. Now that both Kyle Korver and Thabo Sefolosha are healthy, Schroder's appeal in fantasy league goes way down. If you want to cut him for a hot free agent, it's not a bad idea. He would be a must-add guy if Korver or Teague need to miss time, though.
Nov 21 - 9:54 PM

Dennis Schroder will start again on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers.

Jeff Teague (ankle) will be a game-time decision tonight, but he will come off the bench if he is cleared to play and likely won't see a heavy workload. Schroder is a little risky in DFS until we know Teague's status, but those of you in season-long leagues can go ahead and start him.
Nov 21 - 6:12 PM

Dennis Schroder made 9-of-21 from the field for 22 points with two rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

It's by far his best start of the season. Schroder took care of the ball and wasn't nearly as sloppy. Jeff Teague (ankle) was close to playing tonight, so Schroder will probably be moving back to the bench. If he's still on the wire, there's not much incentive to adding him.
Nov 18 - 11:09 PM

Dennis Schroder scored eight points on 3-of-11 from the field against the Nets on Tuesday, adding five rebounds, 10 assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

Even with the sub-par shooting tonight, Schroder is clearly going to be the engine of the offense while Jeff Teague (ankle) is out and has some very nice upside with steals, dimes, treys and a high usage rate. He should be owned in all leagues until Teague is back out there.
Nov 17 - 11:21 PM

Dennis Schroder started Sunday's game in place of Jeff Teague (ankle), posting 11 points on 3-of-10 shooting, six rebounds and nine assists.

Even better, the turnover-prone Schroder had zero miscues in 33 minutes tonight. Teague doesn't have a clear return date so Schroder could earn another start vs. the Nets on Tuesday.
Nov 15 - 8:39 PM

Dennis Schroder will likely be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Jazz with Jeff Teague (ankle) sidelined.

Through two starts this season Schroder is averaging 17.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 three-pointers, 1.5 steals and 3.0 turnovers per game. He's worth considering in DFS, but he'll be a slightly risky option with a tough matchup against the Jazz.
Nov 15 - 4:46 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 10 points with two rebounds, seven assists and two turnovers in 24 minutes on Friday.

Even though Schroder has not been great since his nice start, he's a strong enough speculative add with Jeff Teague (ankle) saying he's very sore. Schroder has a very high usage rate and he's been better as an assist man, so he should put up nice numbers while Teague is out. To be clear, Teague has not been confirmed out for Sunday, so it's not like Schroder is a must-add or anything.
Nov 13 - 11:03 PM

Dennis Schroder made 3-of-10 from the field for six points with seven assists, two steals and three turnovers in 24 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

He only played three minutes next to Jeff Teague tonight. Schroder's best games have clearly been when Kyle Korver is out, so Korver getting out there for both back-to-backs is bad news for his value. He's not quite worth a hold in standard leagues.
Nov 8 - 1:51 AM

Dennis Schroder scored 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting (including three treys) with five assists in 19 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Schroder has been a top-100 player this season with averages of 13.1 points, 1.3 triples, 2.4 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals and averages of 47.4 percent from the field and a low-volume 90 percent at the charity stripe. He's doing it all in 23 mpg and the Hawks are going to hold him back because frankly he tries to shoot nearly every time he touches the ball. But even when his field goal percentage regresses he has decent upside if and when his minutes increase.
Nov 7 - 1:07 AM

Starting in place of Kyle Korver (rest), Dennis Schroder scored 20 points in 28 minutes vs. the Nets, with three 3-pointers, three rebounds, four assists and one steal.

Korver will be rested occasionally this season, particularly in back-to-back sets, giving Schroder's fantasy owners an occasional boost. He did commit four turnovers tonight which is an ongoing concern in 9-cat leagues -- he averaged 3.6 turnovers per 36 minutes last season.
Nov 4 - 10:43 PM

Dennis Schroder will start in place of Kyle Korver (rest) on Wednesday.

It's his second start of the season with his first resulting in a 14-point game in 33 minutes. Schroder should be looking at a similar allotment of playing time tonight and is worth a look against a sub-par Nets team.
Nov 4 - 6:23 PM

Dennis Schroder played just 16 minutes and hit 1-of-6 shots for four points, three assists and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

He got off to a hot start this season, but has scored a total of 10 points in his last two games. He could get some nice run on Wednesday if the Hawks rest Kyle Korver, but is not a real threat to start this season for the Hawks, as long as they're healthy. In short, you can probably find a more reliable free agent on your waiver wire.
Nov 3 - 11:18 PM

Dennis Schroder will move back to the bench against the Hornets on Sunday.

Kyle Korver will be back in the lineup, so there are no surprises here. Schroder has been excellent early on this season and will still see minutes in the 20s off the bench. If he continues to play well, expect to see a lot of two-PG lineups alongside Jeff Teague.
Nov 1 - 12:44 PM

Dennis Schroder played 33 minutes in the starting lineup in place of Kyle Korver (rest) on Friday, scoring 14 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and two turnovers.

He played a whopping 19 of those 33 minutes next to Jeff Teague tonight. Schroder's time next to Teague has really fluctuated this season in just three games, but that may be the most important aspect of his fantasy potential. He's a low-end player to own in standard leagues.
