The Hawks (-6.5) handily beat the Warriors in a rare game where they were favored. This goes to show how low Golden State has fallen. It drops to a league-worst 4-18 record in a game where Draymond Green was given off for rest purposes. Going forward, the Warriors definitely appear to be a tanking team.

As per usual, Trae Young ($10,500) led the way for Atlanta with 24 points and 33.25 DKFP. The only way the Hawks are competitive in games these days is if they get a good scoring night from Young. They also got a good performance from first round pick De’Andre Hunter ($5,000). He had one of the best fantasy games of his young career with 27 DKFP, but left the game late in the fourth quarter with a dislocated finger. He didn’t return to the game and his injury is something to monitor. If Hunter misses time, DeAndre’ Bembry ($4,800) and Evan Turner ($3,200) could pick up extra minutes.

UPDATE: The Hawks announced an update on Hunter after the game.
