Even though the Hawks (+3) didn’t come away with the win as slight underdogs, Trae Young ($10,400) is one of the top fantasy performers of the night. He finished with a double-double and 61.25 DKFP. This game could be seen as a moral victory for Atlanta since it also got a good outing out of rookie Cam Reddish ($4,200). He scored 42.5 DKFP and a career-high 25 points. Even though the Hawks aren’t winning today, they are giving the fans reason to believe they will win in the future.
The Nets won the game on a well-rounded attack. Former Hawk, Taurean Prince ($5,800) was welcomed back to Atlanta with a tribute video and he didn’t disappoint his former fans. Prince scored 42.5 DKFP, matching Reddish, who the Hawks replaced him with. Jarrett Allen ($6,000) continued a string of strong performances, ending his night with 20 points and 13 rebounds. His 50.25 DKFP topped all Nets’ players.
