Atlanta Hawks
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Playing for his third team in as many seasons, Dedmon saw the most extensive action of his career after joining Atlanta following previous stints in Dallas and Orlando. Dedmon was the team's top center for much of the year, starting 46 of the 62 games he played in, while averaging 24.9 minutes. He translated that to a near double-double of 10.0 points and 7.9 rebounds, though his efficiency took quite a bit of a hit with the increase in usage, falling to 52.4 percent from the field compared to 62.2 percent a year prior. In addition, Dedmon knocked down 50 three-pointers at a 35.5 percent clip, which was especially surprising considering the big man had never hit a three-pointer since joining the NBA in 2013. The Hawks made a few moves this offseason, most notably sending Dennis Schroder to the Thunder and Mike Muscala to the 76ers. Schroder led the Hawks' scoring attack last year, so his departure could create a few more shot attempts elsewhere on the roster. That said, it seems more likely guys like Kent Bazemore, Taurean Prince and John Collins soak up those extra touches, rather than Dedmon. The Hawks did add a somewhat intriguing center in Alex Len, who has shown flashes at times when pushed into extended minutes and is just 25 years old. He could push Dedmon for playing time if he shows well during training camp, so that will be a situation to monitor. Still, Dedmon remains the favorite to open the year as a starter and that would likely come with a similar workload and overall production from the 2017-18 campaign. Look for him to be asset in deeper leagues as a rebound specialist that can hit double-digit points on a night-to-night basis, though again, it would still be wise to keep an eye on Len's progress behind him.

ANALYSIS
After totaling a combined 17 points in his last two games, Dedmon popped off for his highest point total since Jan. 21. Dedmon is averaging career highs in points (10.3), free throw percentage (85.1) and three-point percentage (38.1), although fantasy owners should note that this was only his third game scoring at least 20 points in a game this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2014
Dedmon's 2016-17 campaign found him in his biggest role to date. After spending the previous two seasons in Orlando, he made the jump to the contending Spurs and surprisingly stepped into a sizable role right away. Gaining coach Gregg Popovich's trust, Dedmon started 37 of the 76 games he played in, allowing him to average 17.5 minutes per contest. That was a career high and was complemented with 5.1 points and 6.5 rebounds, while shooting 62.2 percent from the floor. Dedmon's steady improvement allowed him to cash in with a two-year, $14 million contract with the Hawks this offseason. He's the favorite to immediately jump in as Atlanta's starting center, though he'll have to fend of any sort of push from Miles Plumlee. Still, a spot in the top unit with the Hawks should mean a decent bump in minutes, which translates to better numbers overall. Dedmon still isn't the biggest threat offensively and most of his gains should be made in the rebound and block categories. That doesn't mean Dedmon's points aren't going to change, as they'll certainly go up, but those in Fantasy shouldn't be relying on him for his scoring. Either way, Dedmon's value is on the rise as long as he doesn't flop in training camp and loses minutes to a guy like Plumlee or Mike Muscala. It's also worth it to consider the fact that Dedmon shot just 69.9 percent from the free-throw line, which hurts his value in rotisserie leagues.
An afterthought in former coach Jacque Vaughn's rotation, Dedmon didn't receive steady playing time until interim coach James Borrego started him 15 of the final 21 games. Concluding his second season in the league, Dedmon averaged 3.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 0.8 blocks in 14 minutes per game over 59 contests. He converted a healthy 57 percent of his field goal attempts, a noticeable improvement from his rookie season, but only connected on 53 percent of his free-throw tries. Dedmon replaced Channing Frye in the starting lineup in March, and while healthy, averaged 1.1 blocks as a starter. The 25-year-old center held opponents to 44 percent shooting at the rim, one of the best marks in the league, and possessed a team-best 98.5 defensive rating on the league's 25th-worst defense. However, he averaged 6.0 fouls per 36 minutes, drastically reducing his playing time. With Jason Smith trading places with Kyle O'Quinn in the offseason, and the Magic replacing interim coach Borrego with Scott Skiles, Dedmon must prove himself all over again.
Dewayne Dedmon is entering his second NBA season. During his rookie campaign - spread across three organizations and concluding in Orlando - Dedmon averaged 3.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 0.2 assists, 0.2 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 13 minutes per game through 31 games played. The 25-year-old center shot 46 percent from the field on 2.7 attempts and 66 percent from the free-throw line on 1.0 attempt. Dedmon spent the majority of his rookie season in the D-League and ended the regular season on a low note, starting the final six games but only converting 30 percent of his shots, a product of no longer facing second units regularly. Even with his relatively high block numbers, a rim deterrent he was not, allowing opponents to shoot 61 percent at the rim last season, second worst to Reggie Evans among non-guards with at least two chances per game. Dedmon claims to have gained eight pounds of muscle this offseason but is not on most fantasy radars as his offensive struggles and spot behind Nikola Vucevic and Kyle O'Quinn on the depth chart curtail expectations heading into the season.
