Kyle Korver is scheduled to take part in this year's three-point contest during the All-Star Break.
Korver is shooting a historic 53.6 percent from beyond the arc this season, but hasn't either of the three-point contests he's been part of. He currently leads the NBA with 130 three-pointers made and continues to be a border-line elite fantasy option if for nothing but the 3.1 treys per game that he provides his owners. Jan 22 - 11:26 AM

Kyle Korver scored 13 points with three 3-pointers and six rebounds vs. the Pistons on Monday, and he approached his season high with five assists.

He hadn't dished out more than four assists since late November and continues to find ways to supplement his fantasy value, which is rooted in elite 3-point shooting. Korver's 53.6 percent mark from downtown is easily the best in the NBA, and today's performance moved him past Wes Matthews for the league-lead in total 3-pointers made (128).
Jan 19 - 6:23 PM

Kyle Korver continued his ridiculous run from beyond the arc, making seven 3-pointers for 24 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks on 7-of-10 from the field.

He had a 105.0 effective field goal percentage (eFG%) tonight, which is an absurd feat to score that many points on that kind of efficiency. His last five games are just mind-boggling with a 92.5 effective field goal percentage despite making only 44.4 percent on his two-pointers. He is having one of the greatest shooting performances in the history of the league and is a fantasy stud.

Kyle Korver and Al Horford will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against Toronto, sending Pero Antic and Thabo Sefolosha back to the bench.

The usual starter of Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll, and Paul Millsap will join Korver and Horford for tonight’s matchup, and all of these guys are prone to putting up gaudy stat lines so make sure you have them active.

Kyle Korver credited Mike Budenholzer's system as to why he's having such an excellent season this year in Atlanta.

"This [system] is great for me," said Korver. "I feel like what has helped me a ton is I’m not just waiting for shots. I get to search them out a little bit. As a shooter, that really helps you." Korver is currently shooting an impressive 50.6 percent from the field, 52.5 percent from beyond the arc (first in the league), and 91.7 percent from the line (second in the league). Korver is quietly putting up early-round value on the season, and there's no reason to think he can't keep it up.
Jan 16 - 9:30 AM

Kyle Korver (rest) will not play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

The Hawks are resting their guys in the soft part of their schedule with Al Horford also out and the team resting the other three starters on Tuesday. With Korver out, it'll be Thabo Sefolosha in the starting lineup. He has an extremely low usage rate, so he's not a great guy for offense. Kent Bazemore will also see more playing time.
Jan 14 - 6:35 PM

Kyle Korver couldn't miss during Sunday's trouncing of the Wizards, scoring 19 points on 6-of-8 shooting (5-of-7 from deep) to go with four assists, one steal, three rebounds and two turnovers.

Korver also had a fantastic behind-the-back dish to DeMarre Carroll on a fast break which you are sure to see on the highlight reel. Korver's game is underrated but he's managing to put up early-round value on the season with averages of 12.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.5 blocks, and an elite 2.9 three-pointers per game while shooting 49.7 percent from the field. That is fantasy gold.
Jan 11 - 6:52 PM

Kyle Korver bounced back from consecutive single-digit scoring performances on Tuesday, scoring 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting with five 3-pointers.

He also grabbed eight rebounds, two shy of his season high, and continues to be one of the most underappreciated fantasy assets in the league. He's yet to miss a game all year and has been an elite source of 3-pointers (2.9) with healthy contributions in points (12.8), assists (3.1) and percentages (49.2 percent FGs, 93.8 percent FTs).

Kyle Korver had another quiet night against the Bucks on Saturday with six points, four rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He only had three points on Friday against the Bucks, so coach Jason Kidd has his number. Korver doesn't take a ton of shots and even the best shooters slump, so he gets a pass. Maybe his fantasy owners don't realize he's posting early-round value. If he/she doesn't, go ahead and try to buy low.

Kyle Korver made his 49th consecutive free throw for a Hawks record on Saturday, finishing with 22 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes during a 104-97 win.

It might sound like hyperbole, but Korver is one of the best shooters in NBA history. He already has the record for most consecutive games with a trey and he's about halfway for the NBA record for consecutive makes at the line. Cool streaks aside, he's posting early round fantasy value.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 10:54:00 PM

Kyle Korver hit just 1-of-3 shots (a 3-pointer) for four points, five rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in Wednesday's blowout win over the Hawks.

The Hawks simply didn't need much from Korver tonight with Shelvin Mack going off from the bench. Korver is fine, but just had an off night in an easy win. He should bounce back in the next one.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 09:52:00 PM

Kyle Korver put up a big game against his first NBA team, scoring 17 points, two rebounds, two assists, one block, three steals and five 3-pointers.

He's now shooting 56.1 percent from beyond the arc and 95.3 percent from the line for one of the most impressive shooting seasons in a while. Among qualifiers, only Steve Kerr in 1995-96 has shot over 50 percent from deep and over 90 percent from the line in a season. Korver is also bringing more defense and is a must-start player.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 12:16:00 AM

Kyle Korver hit 6-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 18 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals in Wednesday's win.

Korver went off for 24 points and six treys on Tuesday and since scoring just two points on Nov. 26, he's averaging 16.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 3.4 3-pointers over his last five games.
Thu, Dec 4, 2014 12:22:00 AM

Kyle Korver torched the Celtics for 24 points in Tuesday's comeback win, making 6-of-7 shots from downtown with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.

Boston's defense has been terrible all season so it's not shocking to see Korver tee off against them on the perimeter. He's hitting 3-pointers at a record-setting pace this season -- 3.0 per game at a 55.9 percent clip. He's a huge reason for the Hawks' 10-6 start this season, which is good enough for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.
Tue, Dec 2, 2014 10:20:00 PM

Kyle Korver had a rough night vs. the Wizards on Tuesday, going 0-of-3 from the field to finish with two points, four rebounds, one assist and four turnovers in 25 minutes.

Korver is shooting 56.7 percent on 5.5 attempts per game from beyond the arc, which will shatter a few NBA records if he keeps it up all season. Every team's scouting report focuses on never leaving Korver open on the perimeter, so he'll have a few rough games whenever the Hawks can't spring him free with screens and set plays. Stick with him through the droughts and it will pay off richly.
