RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

In his sixth season, Teague elevated his play to All-Star status, turning in averages of 15.9 points on 12.2 field goal attempts, 2.5 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.7 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 31 minutes per game through 73 regular season games. The 6-2, 180-pound guard shot 46 percent from the floor, 34 percent from downtown, and 86 percent from the charity stripe. During 16 playoff games, he averaged 16.8 points on 14.9 shot attempts, 3.2 rebounds, 6.7 assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 33 minutes per game while sinking 41 percent from the field, 32 percent from beyond the arc, and 87 percent from the free-throw line. Teague, who turns 28 next June, is under contract with the Hawks through 2016-17 at an $8 million per year steal.

2014-15

You might look at Teague's career-best scoring average from last season (16.5 ppg) and assume that the fifth-year point guard had a productive season under new coach Mike Budenholzer, but Teague's averages don't tell the whole story. He struggled to take on the responsibility of running his new coach's San Antonio Spurs-style offense and was wildly inconsistent for much of the season. So much so that, according to a number of reports, Teague was actively being shopped in trades at midseason. But things seemed to click for Teague toward the end of the year, and in the Hawks' first-round playoff loss to the Pacers, he was outstanding (19.3 points, 5.0 assists, 3.7 boards in 35 minute per game against Indiana). Atlanta management is hoping he'll build on that performance and become a more consistent player this season. They'd surely trade a drop in his averages for fewer "peaks and valleys" in his game. With Al Horford back at full strength and a deeper roster, Teague shouldn't need to score quite as much this season for the Hawks to be successful.

2013-14

At one point, there were rumors that the Hawks would chase Chris Paul in free agency. Instead, general manager Danny Ferry allowed the market to set a price for his incumbent point guard, Jeff Teague. Milwaukee offered $32 million over four years, Ferry matched – and may have gotten a very good deal in the process. Teague is just 25 years old and coming off a career-best season, when he averaged 15.6 points, 7.2 dimes – career highs, both – along with 2.3 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 45 percent shooting from the floor. He could be primed to better those numbers in 2013-14. Bear in mind – he compiled them while playing just 33 minutes per game; Devin Harris played 25. Now, Harris is gone, and apart from Lou Williams – who is coming off ACL surgery and is more of a scorer than a point guard – Atlanta doesn't really have an established backup. It seems reasonable to anticipate a larger role for Teague this season and beyond.

2012-13

Teague proved capable in his first season as a starter, doubling nearly all of his per game averages from the year before. Of course, such improvement is to be expected when a player’s minutes rise from just 13.8 to 33.1 minutes per game. He faces a much stiffer challenge for playing time this season after the Hawks added Louis Williams, Devin Harris and Anthony Morrow to the guard mix. As long as there’s a roster jam in the backcourt, Teague may see a slight cut in minutes. Though the time crunch could adversely affect many of Teague’s counting stats, he’ll likely be relied on to be more of a pass-first point guard, so his assists per game could actually rise. Similar expectations may be placed on Harris as well, which may ultimately force coach Larry Drew to decide which of the two players he trusts more as a floor general. Teague is just 24 and entering his fourth NBA season, so he would seem to have more upside at this point than Harris, who will turn 30 in February. Teague will look to stake his claim to a starting job on the strength of his improved shooting. His field goal percentage rose to 47.6 percent in 2011-12 despite hoisting nearly six more shots per game. The Hawks have talked a lot about Teague this offseason, painting him to be a centerpiece of their future. With Harris’ contract expiring after this season, there’s little doubt that Teague will be given more of a leadership role than Harris or the newly acquired Williams.

2011-12

The 2011 Eastern Conference Semifinals served as Jeff Teague’s coming-out party. When Kirk Hinrich was injured, the little-used second-year guard out of Wake Forest stepped up in a big way, averaging 14.8 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds, one steal and 0.5 blocks against just 1.2 turnovers. That performance likely earned Teague the starting spot for this season and beyond. Even if Hawks management decides to stick with Hinrich, Teague’s role should increase substantially, as Atlanta is almost certain to lose sixth man Jamal Crawford in free agency. Worth noting: Teague is a better three-point shooter than he showed during that breakout series against the Bulls. He hit just one of seven in the eastern semis, but was a .375 shooter from long range during the regular season and a .441 shooter in his sophomore year at Wake Forest, while hitting more than one per game.

2010-11

The Hawks selected Teague out of Wake Forest University with the 19th overall pick of the 2009 NBA Draft. With Bibby and Crawford seeing the majority of action at point guard, the team was able to usher Teague in slowly, limiting him to 10 minutes per contest throughout his rookie campaign. The 22-year-old guard is expected to play a bigger role in his second season. Teague is best with the ball in his hands and has an uncanny ability to get to the rim. He’s not likely to be a great assist man, but Teague can hold some value in fantasy as a scorer once he starts receiving more playing time.

2009-10

The presence of Bibby and Crawford limit Teague's potential as a rookie, but he should see 10-15 minutes as the Hawks attempt to keep Bibby's 31-year-old legs fresh and evaluate Teague's ability. He's more of a shooter than a true point guard, and has the quickness and ballhandling ability to create his own shot. Unless injuries strike, he probably won't see enough court time to be a fantasy factor this year, but Teague could be a name to stow away in your mind for a year or two down the road.
