Dennis Schroder scored 17 points with 11 assists, two rebounds and one triple in 25 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.
He looked much better on paper than in real life, as the Hawks were roasted by 36 points and Schroder and the rest of the starters were benched at half. Schroder has put together three encouraging stat lines in a row with averages of 24.0 points, 8.7 assists and 1.3 triples in that span, but it's going to be interesting to see what happens to his (and the rest of the starters) role on Saturday vs. the Raptors with his head coach contemplating lineup changes. Our guess is that Schroder's job is safe. Dec 3 - 12:36 AM

Dennis Schroder scored a career-high 31 points in Phoenix on Wednesday, hitting 13-of-23 shots with nine assists, four rebounds, two 3-pointers and one block.

The Hawks came in with three straight losses, including blowouts vs. the Jazz and Lakers, and they fell again tonight despite Schroder's best efforts. He did have five turnovers, continuing a career-long trend, but his 8-cat owners have to be thrilled -- over the past two games he's averaged 27.5 points on 50.0 percent shooting, 2.5 boards, 7.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks.

Dennis Schroder went off for 24 points against the Warriors on Monday, shooting 10-of-20 from the field with six assists, one rebound, one block, two steals, one triple and five turnovers in 34 minutes.

The only highlight you will see of Schroder is him getting stuffed at the rim by Draymond Green in the final minute, but he played excellent on Monday and was giving Stephen Curry problems all night. Schroder is a peaks and valleys PG who has lacked consistency, and for the most part he's been a letdown for his owners who drafted him in the middle rounds. Hopefully this was a sign of better things to come.

Dennis Schroder scored 16 points on 6-of-19 shooting with two assists, two rebounds, three steals, two triples and two turnovers in 28 minutes in Friday's 95-68 loss to the Pacers.

Atlanta looked awful Friday and none of the starters played more than 28 minutes in the blowout. Schroder has had a couple of brutal games over the last week and the Hawks have been talking up Malcolm Delaney a bit, but Schroder played a little better tonight while Delaney was scoreless in 13 minutes. Maybe a matchup with the Lakers on Sunday will help him get it going.
Nov 25 - 10:58 PM

Dennis Schroder had another rough game on Wednesday, scoring nine points on 3-of-11 shooting with three rebounds, two assists and four turnovers.

The Hawks have committed a league-high 17.4 turnovers per game this season, which is on pace to be the most of any team since the Knicks in 2006-07. Much of that can be traced to their primary ball-handler, who is averaging 3.1 miscues in under 30 minutes per game, and it's taking a heavy toll on his 9-cat value. Schroder's fantasy owners have to be disappointed with the early returns.

Dennis Schroder hit 6-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 14 points, four rebounds and seven assists in 27 minutes of Tuesday's 112-94 blowout loss to the Pelicans.

Schroder was 0-for-8 on Sunday, so it was nice to see him bounce back on a night when the other Hawks starters just didn't have anything for the Pelicans. Hopefully he keeps it going on Wednesday against the banged up Pacers.
Nov 22 - 10:23 PM

Dennis Schroder was flat out terrible during Sunday's 104-94 loss to the Knicks, missing all eight of his shots and finishing the game with one point, three assists, two boards and three turnovers in 21 minutes.

Schroder spent the final 17 minutes of action riding the bench, with Mike Budenholzer opting to let Kent Bazemore and Tim Hardaway Jr. run the offense, and Malcolm Delaney closed out the game for Atlanta. For what it's worth, Budenholzer said after the game that Schroder has been "really, really good this season," but Sunday just wasn't his day. Owners can expect a bounce-back performance with a better matchup on Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.
Nov 20 - 2:43 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 16 points with five rebounds, eight assists, one block, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

After some horrendous efficiency to start the year, Schroder is starting to make his shots. In his last five, he's averaged 18.8 points, 4.8 boards, 6.4 assists, 0.2 steals and 1.6 treys. The lack of steals, high turnovers and still sub-par shooting on the year has made him a late-round guy in standard leagues. He should be able to improve on that.
Nov 12 - 10:36 PM

Dennis Schroder hit 10-of-16 shots, three 3-pointers and 5-of-5 free throws for a career-high 28 points, two rebounds and six assists in Tuesday's 110-106 win over the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

Like Mikey in Swingers, Schroder's "all growds up" now after clearly outplaying Kyrie Irving tonight. Schroder's big line was extremely efficient and the only thing Irving did better than Schroder was not committing a turnover, while Schroder had four of them for the third straight game. He's having a great season and it just got even better.
Nov 8 - 10:00 PM

Dennis Schroeder hit 6-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, three rebounds and 12 assists in 32 minutes of Saturday's win over the Rockets.

This marks his second double-double of the season and the 12 dimes are a season high. He only has three steals thus far, but has knocked down seven treys to help offset the lack of swipes and shaky field goal shooting. He's primed to have a big season for Atlanta and is starting to live up to the hype.
Nov 5 - 10:35 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 20 points during a 95-92 loss to the Wizards on Friday with seven rebounds, three assists and four turnovers.

He played well with his best scoring and rebounding game. Schroder hasn't been able to knock down his jumpers in this young season and his non-scoring stats aren't where they should be, but his owners should be satisfied with his production so far. He gets a great matchup on Saturday against the Rockets.
Nov 4 - 10:24 PM

Dennis Schroder hit just 5-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for a season-high 17 points, three rebounds and five assists in Monday's win over the Kings.

He outplayed Ty Lawson and the Hawks won, but his shooting should be a bit of a concern all season. He's locked and loaded as the Hawks' starting point guard and should have plenty of big games in store for his owners the rest of the year.
Oct 31 - 10:54 PM

Dennis Schroder matched his career-high 11 assists against the 76ers on Saturday, adding 11 points, one steal and two turnovers in 28 minutes.

It's the third time he's reached 11 assists and the ninth double-double of his career. Schroder had a better net rating with the starters over Jeff Teague last year, so on paper he should mesh -- we'll see how much they miss Al Horford. Schroder will have his head-scratching moments, but he should be ready to roll as a top-15 assist guy with scoring in the teens.
Oct 29 - 4:09 PM

Dennis Schroder and the Hawks have agreed to a four-year, $70 million extension.

There was some talk of Schroder getting a max deal last year, but it didn't quite cost that much for the Hawks. With only Malcolm Delaney behind Schroder now, the German point guard should be able to improve on his 2015-16 starter averages of 13.7 points, 5.5 dimes and 0.8 steals. He'll have some shooting percentage issues, but there will be plenty of big lines from the 23-year-old guard.
Oct 26 - 4:08 PM

Hawks GM Wes Wilcox said that he's hoping to extend Dennis Schroder's contract before the Oct. 31 deadline.

"It’s the deadline for both Dennis and Tim Hardaway Jr," Wilcox said. "We’ve had conversations with both representatives. It’s too difficult to say if something will get done and those conversations, as always, we keep internal. But yes, we’ve had conversations with both." The Hawks traded away Jeff Teague to give Schroder the keys to the offense, and considering they only have two PGs on their 15-man roster, they must be comfortable with him as their starter moving forward. He's worth a mid-round pick this season.
