Dennis Schroder slowed down against the Rockets on Saturday with eight points, six rebounds, six assists and four turnovers in 30 minutes.
He looked great in his first start on Wednesday, but Patrick Beverley will make anyone look a lot worse. Schroder should have another game as the start and would likely have success against Rajon Rondo. He's worth a look for short-term value. Dec 20 - 10:49 PM

Dennis Schroder started in place of Jeff Teague (hamstring) and hit 4-of-6 shots for 10 points, two rebounds and 10 assists in 22 minutes of Wednesday's surprisingly easy win over the Cavaliers.

Schroder and reserve Shelvin Mack dominated Kyrie Irving and the Cavs tonight for a 127-98 blowout win. Schroder came through if you used him with Teague out, but Mack was even better with 24 points on a great shooting night. It was hard to see this type of blowout coming in Cleveland, but the Hawks are playing very well as a team and didn't even miss Teague tonight. If he misses any more games, look for Schroder to start and share minutes with Mack again.

Dennis Schroder will draw the start in place of Jeff Teague (hamstring) on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers.

Teague could miss some additional time, so Schroder makes a lot of sense as a speculative add in deeper leagues. The young point guard from Germany has been fantastic this season and will get an extended look with the first unit on Wednesday. He does have a tough matchup against Kyrie Irving, but Schroder should be up to the task and is worth a look in almost all leagues for short-term value.

Hawks' head coach Mike Budenholzer said Dennis Schroder's confidence is growing with each game.

Schroder's 16 points on Wednesday marked the second game in a row that he's set a career high in points. "His understanding of pace – he’s so fast but sometimes you need him to slow down," Budenholzer said. The 21-year-old's fantasy value is limited as long as Jeff Teague is healthy, but he can still provide some deep league value as long as he's playing over 20 minutes.
Dec 4 - 11:08 AM

Dennis Schroder came off the bench for 16 points, three assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on 6-of-9 shooting in 22 minutes on Wednesday.

He scored 16 on Tuesday and if Jeff Teague wasn't playing like an All-Star, we'd be a little concerned about Schroder stealing some of his minutes. But as it stands, he's simply a nice source of relief who can be relied upon to get Teague some rest from game to game. But if Teague ever goes down with an injury, Schroder will become a must-own player.

Hawks PG Dennis Schroder excelled in 23 minutes off the bench vs. Boston, making 6-of-12 FGs to finish with 15 points, three rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes off the bench.

He missed both of his 3-point attempts and turned the ball over three times, but still sparked a strong bench effort that helped Atlanta overcome a double-digit deficit. It will take an injury to Jeff Teague for Schroder to have sustained value in 12-team leagues, but he's at least worth keeping on the fantasy radar.
Dec 2 - 10:21 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 14 points on 4-of-8 shooting with four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 28 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Schroder did not hit a three but he did make all six of his foul attempts, and it's still unclear what Mike Budenholzer was doing with Jeff Teague (three points, six assists, 0-for-4 FGs, 25 minutes) but let this be a reminder that Schroder is having a nice year. He'll need an injury to Teague to truly make a difference in fantasy leagues, but an increased role could help into some deep league discussion if he continues along like this.
Nov 10 - 10:25 PM

Dennis Schroder has made a big impact for the Hawks off the bench over the last three games by posting averages of 10.0 points, 1.3 assists, 1.3 rebounds, and 2.3 steals in just over 14 minutes.

He has played fantastic, and is now the primary backup PG in place of Shelvin Mack. While owners in deep leagues should take notice, Schroder would need a Jeff Teague injury to be relevant in standard leagues. Keep an eye on him for now.
Nov 9 - 9:24 AM

Dennis Schroder played 20 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday with 11 points, one rebound, two assists and five steals.

He's leapfrogged Shelvin Mack for the backup job, but obviously Jeff Teague is rolling and will still get his minutes. Schroder is only worth a look in deep leagues and would need a Teague injury to get your attention as a potential add.
Nov 8 - 11:32 PM

Dennis Schoder provided a boost off the Hawks' bench with nine points in eight minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Spurs.

"I just tried to bring the energy." Schroder said. "We had a good second half, and if we do that for 48 minutes, we win that game." Schoder's best game of the season helped the Hawks keep the game close, but it's all relative as a season-high of eight minutes won't help fantasy owners.
Nov 6 - 11:58 AM

The Hawks have picked up their team option on Dennis Schroder.

Schroder is going to split minutes with Shelvin Mack, backing up starting point guard Jeff Teague, and that's not a recipe for fantasy success. Leave him on the waiver wire.
Oct 31 - 10:06 AM

Dennis Schroder started and played 28 minutes at point guard on Thursday with 11 points, four rebounds, six assists and one block.

He's going to split the backup duties with Shelvin Mack (four points and two assists in 20 minutes), so he'll need a lot of things to happen to have fantasy value. Schroder is still a couple years away from being a regular contributor.
Oct 17 - 12:05 AM

The Atlanta Hawks are still undecided on whether to exercise their extension on Dennis Schroder.

The Hawks have until 11:59 PM ET on October 31 to exercise Schroder's $1,763,400 option for the 2015-16 season. Head coach Mike Budenholzer will make the final decision as he serves as acting general manager with Danny Ferry on an indefinite leave of absence. While it's likely that he Hawks will pick up the option on a player they thought enough of to select 17th overall in the 2013 NBA draft, Schroder doesn't offer a ton of fantasy value unless Jeff Teague goes down with an injury.
Oct 14 - 12:45 PM

Dennis Schroder came off the bench for 14 points, three assists and a 3-pointer on 4-of-6 shooting in 20 minutes on Saturday.

He's a very good player, but will be stifled playing behind Jeff Teague in Atlanta. But if Teague ever goes down with an injury, Schroder will be a hot pick up off waiver wires.
Oct 11 - 11:02 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 20 points with seven assists in Germany's loss to Poland on Wednesday.

He had some tremendous games at Las Vegas Summer League and could be coming around. The Hawks knew they were getting a project in the 20-year-old guard, but he's still likely at least a season away from reliable fantasy value, especially with the Hawks bringing back Shelvin Mack.
