Shelvin Mack scored 24 points (7-8 FGA/ 4-4 FTA) going 6-for-6 from three-point range with two rebounds and three assists in the Hawks 127-98 win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

Mack hasn't been playing a steady dosage of minutes lately so his fantasy value is rather minimal. The 24 points are a season high for Mack, and it will be awhile until these numbers are replicated. Of his 24 points, 18 came from beyond the arc, and he won't be able to shoot perfectly from three on a nightly basis. Mack saw a boost in minutes due to the absence of Jeff Teague.

Paul Millsap scored 14 points (7-11 FGA) with eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in the Hawks 127-98 win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday. 

While his point production has fluctuated over the course of the season, he has been very steady in rebounding the ball. In his last six games, he has had three games above 15 points, but has had three below, with two coming in the single digits. However, in that same span, he hasn't had less than eight rebounds or two assists in any game. Millsap is playing a high volume of minutes on a nightly basis and is a very underrated power forward.

Al Horford scored 20 points (10-14 FGA) with two rebounds, four assists and two blocks in the Hawks 127-98 win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

While Horford's point production and assist numbers were solid, the two rebounds were a low number for the Atlanta center. He was averaging 6.6 rebounds coming into the game and the two were well below his average. Horford is a very solid center in the NBA who often goes unmentioned, and he remains a serviceable mid-tier option in DFS.

Dennis Schroder scored 10 points (4-6 FGA/ 2-2 FTA) with two rebounds and 10 assists in the Hawks 127-98 win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

With Jeff Teague out of the starting lineup, Schroder was a common play in DFS tonight. He exceeded his value by recording a double double. For as long as Teague is out, Schroder will be a popular value play, and could be considered in as shallow as 10-team leagues if Teague were to miss a substantial amount of time.

Dennis Schr?der will start at point guard Wednesday against the Cavaliers.

Jeff Teague is out with a hamstring injury so Schroder will draw the start against Cleveland. Don't expect a ton of production from Schroder, but he could be of decent value in very deep leagues and makes for a boom or bust play in DFS leagues while Teague is out.

Jeff Teague (hamstring) will not play Wednesday against the Cavaliers.

Teague suffered a hamstring injury in the first half of Monday's game against Chicago and will miss Wednesday night's game. At this point he should be considered day-to-day, but this is something that could linger for some time. The Hawks' starting point guard is averaging 16.8 points and 7.0 assists this season.

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

The reports are that Teague is dealing with a left hamstring strain, and it happened in Monday's game against the Bulls. This will be a wait and see situation tonight after pregame shoot around but it does seem likely that Dennis Schroder will likely get the nod in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Pero Antic will play on Wednesday.

Antic has missed the past three games for the Hawks due to an illness. He'll suit up on Wednesday, but the big man doesn't have much fantasy value as he's averaging five points and just over two rebounds per game this season.

Jeff Teague scored 12 points (5-12 FGA/ 2-2 FTA) with three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block in the Hawks 93-86 win over the Bulls on Monday.

Teague has seen his per game averages dip in the month of December but that is not because of poor play as his shooting efficiency is above his season average. Overall on the year Teague is averaging career highs in points and assists and is a key reason for the Hawks success this season.
