Atlanta snapped a seven-game losing streak on Tuesday, despite Dennis Schroder committing nine turnovers while scoring 14 points on 6-of-16 shooting.
It wasn't a total loss, as he chipped in five assists, three rebounds and one steal, but owners in 9-cat leagues can't be happy -- he's now averaging 6.8 turnovers in his past five games. He's also shooting below 41 percent from the field in that span, which takes the shine off his otherwise robust statistics. Mar 29 - 10:11 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 27 points on 12-of-27 shooting in a win over the Suns on Tuesday, helping the Hawks snap a seven-game losing streak.

The 27 FGAs is a career-high, but it's not a surprise with Thabo Sefolosha (groin), Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) all on the shelf tonight. Schroder added nine assists, six rebounds, one steal and two triples, and he's rolling with averages of 23.4 points, 7.2 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 0.8 blocks, 0.8 steals and 2.0 triples over his last five games. This has been his best stretch of the season and he couldn't have timed it better for his fantasy owners.
Mar 28 - 11:25 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 24 points with three rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Nets during a 107-92 loss on Sunday.

He took a couple hard hits in this game, including a cut on the mouth from Jeremy Lin's contact to Schroder's face. With this loss, the Hawks still haven't won a game without Paul Millsap and they continue to slide in the standings. As for Schroder, he does get a 4.1 usage rate boost and an increase in assist percentage when Sapper is on the bench, so his fantasy upside has increased due to more volume.
Mar 26 - 4:56 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 28 points on 11-of-25 shooting with seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and three triples vs. the Bucks on Friday.

Since Paul Millsap (knee) went down, Schroder is averaging 18.5 points, 6.5 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.4 triples over his last four games, but his efficiency is way down -- he's shooting 36.1 percent from the field with 4.8 turnovers in that span. With that said, tonight's line was encouraging and his owners can look forward to his great matchup with the Nets on Sunday -- Brooklyn has allowed the most fantasy points per game to point guards this season.
Mar 24 - 11:21 PM

Dennis Schroder committed a career-high 10 turnovers during Wednesday's 104-100 defeat, adding 18 points (5-of-16 FGs, 8-of-8 FTs) with six assists and two rebounds.

Schroder's previous career-high was seven turnovers but he simply couldn't get out of his own way vs. John Wall tonight. Miscues have been a constant issue for him in the NBA, but he's done enough over the past few weeks for owners to overlook tonight's unsightly 'double-double'.
Mar 22 - 11:36 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting in a loss to the Hornets on Monday.

That's four straight losses for the Hawks and it doesn't get any easier on Wednesday vs. the Hawks. As for Schroder, this was a nice bounce-back game after he was limited to eight points on 2-of-14 shooting in his previous game. He played 31 minutes with six assists, three rebounds, two blocks and three triples, and more big lines are likely on the way -- Paul Millsap (knee) will miss at least one more game and Schroder gets a 3.7 usage rate bump when Millsap is off the court.
Mar 20 - 9:43 PM

Dennis Schroder made just 2-of-14 from the field for eight points with three rebounds, seven assists, four steals and one 3-pointer against the Blazers on Saturday.

He was actually on a roll a few days ago, but this woeful outing and a 4-of-16 shooting line on Thursday puts him on the other end of the spectrum. Schroder probably isn't near the doghouse yet, but you never know when it comes to coach Mike Budenholzer. He also had a handful of defensive lapses, so that won't help. He'll get a tough matchup against Kemba Walker on Monday to start his four-game week.
Mar 18 - 8:51 PM

Dennis Schroder hit just 4-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, three assists and two steals in Thursday's ugly loss to the Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies have been the league's worst defensive team since the break but they wrapped up Paul Millsap and Schroder tonight. Schroder came into this one running hot and will hope to bounce back against Damian Lillard on Saturday night, which will be an important game for both teams.
Mar 16 - 10:12 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 22 points with 10 assists, two rebounds, two steals and zero turnovers vs. the Spurs on Monday.

He missed all four of his 3-pointers, but finished 10-of-22 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line in 38 minutes. Since he was benched against the Warriors on Mar. 6 for a blown defensive assignment, Schroder has responded with averages of 23.8 points, 7.0 assists, 4.3 boards, 2.0 steals and 0.8 triples over his last four games. Unfortunately, his owners only get to deploy him two more times this week.
Mar 14 - 12:14 AM

Dennis Schroder scored 26 points with six rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer against the Raptors on Friday.

That's two strong games in a row after his routine trip to coach Mike Budenholzer's doghouse. Schroder looks like he's back to being a reliable player in fantasy leagues. Due to some inefficiency, he's really only a mid-round guy over a longer period of time.
Mar 11 - 1:16 AM

Dennis Schroder was terrific vs. the Nets on Wednesday, scoring a game-high 31 points (10-of-21 FGs, 10-of-10 FTs) with five assists, two rebounds, three steals and one 3-pointer.

Schroder was benched down the stretch on Monday for blowing a defensive assignment and arguing with teammates. He and coach Mike Budenholzer had a "productive" talk earlier on Wednesday, and whatever they talked about clearly did the trick. Atlanta has lost three of their past four games but they're still holding onto the No. 5 spot in the East, and they'll need Schroder at his best to make some noise in the postseason.
Mar 8 - 10:46 PM

Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer said he had a "productive" meeting with Dennis Schroder Wednesday morning.

Schroder was benched during the third quarter of Monday's loss to the Warriors for an embarrassing mistake on defense and did not return, but it sounds like he'll be back in action with his usual minutes for tonight's game against the Nets.
Mar 8 - 1:44 PM

Dennis Schroder was benched in the third quarter on Monday night after arguing with a teammate and coach Mike Budenholzer and did not return to the game.

Schroder was arguing with Dwight Howard with 10 minutes left in the third quarter when the Warriors inbounded the ball and Stephen Curry quickly hit a 3-pointer. Budenholzer immediately called a timeout and yelled at Schroder. However, it seems all sides are looking to move past the issue. "We have to figure it out, me and coach," Schroder said. "I want to talk about it. Dwight’s got to be in there too. Get on the same page." At this point, it appears Schroder will not receive any further discipline, and he should be good to go on Wednesday when the Hawks host the Nets.
Mar 7 - 9:35 AM

Dennis Schroder scored 19 points in the first quarter of Monday's loss to the Warriors but finished with just 23 points, four boards, three assists, a steal and four 3-pointers, and sat on the bench for the game's final 21 minutes, despite not being injured.

Schroder looked like an All-Star in the first quarter, so the benching was a bit of a surprise. Coach Mike Budenholzer reportedly benched him due to a Steph Curry 3-pointer that happened while Schroder and Dwight Howard were arguing, instead of playing defense. Schroder says he wants to meet with his coach and Howard to patch things up, which is a good thing. He had a big fantasy line, nonetheless, but Malcolm Delaney took a shot to the face tonight and was treated on the bench, and the Hawks were using Tim Hardaway at point guard for part of the time Schroder was a helpless spectator. Hopefully he works things out with his coach on Tuesday.
Mar 6 - 10:19 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 18 points on 7-of-16 shooting Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, seven assists, one rebound, three steals and just one turnover in 36 minutes.

Turnovers and a lack of defensive statistics are typically an issue for Schroder, so the three steals and one turnover today were a welcome sight for his owners. Unfortunately, that’s not likely a trend that will continue, which is why it's unlikely that Schroder will be anything more than a late-round guy this season.
