2018 Fantasy Outlook
After a lackluster rookie campaign, Prince made a noticeable leap in his second year, starting all 82 regular season games and hitting the coveted 30-minute threshold on a per game basis. The 24-year-old finished second on the team in scoring behind Dennis Schroder at 14.1 points, which included 2.1 three-pointers at an improved 38.5 percent clip from deep. He also added 4.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.0 steal. Clearly one of the Hawks' building blocks of the future, Prince's rapid development has him primed for another productive year in 2018-19. The Hawks dealt Dennis Schroder to the Thunder in the offseason, so Prince will be the top returning scorer from a season ago. Fellow frontcourt player John Collins, who also has shown a ton of upside, is headed into his first full year as a starter, but that shouldn't cut into Prince's numbers much, if at all. In addition, the selection of Trae Young with the fifth overall pick in the draft replaces Schroder with an unproven talent. As a result, Prince and Collins will likely be relied upon even more offensively, giving both the opportunity to build on their already solid numbers. Prince's strong sophomore season and likely uptick in usage ahead of the upcoming campaign should establish him as a coveted mid-round pick in Fantasy drafts. Read Past Outlooks

Off minutes restriction

January 19, 2019
Prince won't have a minutes restriction for Saturday's game against the Celtics, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
After playing 13 minutes -- recording seven points and three rebounds along the way -- in Tuesday's game against Philadelphia, Prince has shed his minutes restriction. While DeAndre Bembry will continue to start, Prince figures to have an expanded role, and approach the 27.2 minutes and 14.3 points per game he is averaging this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Prince, the 12th overall selection of the 2016 NBA Draft, got off to a slow start in his rookie campaign, but saw his role grow throughout the year and averaged a respectable 8.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steal across 25.6 minutes from the start of March through the end of April. He shot 44.8 percent from the field, but his three-point shot could use some improvement, though it wasn't horrible at 33.3 percent. Prince's value should continue to rise heading into the 2017-18 season, as the Hawks no longer have Paul Millsap, Dwight Howard, Tim Hardaway Jr. or Thabo Sefolosha. It's a clear rebuild in Atlanta, so at just 22 years old, Prince is one of the younger players on the roster who has the upside to earn him a ton of minutes. Prince is currently projected to start at small forward, though fellow second-year player DeAndre' Bembry has shown some promise as well. That said, Prince's numbers should increase across the board and after last season's coming out party in the playoffs where he averaged 11.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 31.1 minutes, he'll have high expectations in what should be his first full season as a starter.
One of two first-round picks made by the Hawks in June to address their depth on the wing, Prince, the No. 12 overall selection, provides a good complement to DeAndre' Bembry, the 21st overall pick. Unlike Bembry, who profiles as more of an athlete who can run the floor, Prince's game is a bit more polished all around. The 6-foot-8 Prince uses a 6-foot-11.5 wingspan to harass perimeter players and battle power forwards on defense, and showed an ability during his time at Baylor to knock down open three-point shots and convert on spot-up chances. The Hawks are optimistic Prince can develop into a three-and-D player who could eventually replace the aging Kyle Korver in the starting lineup, but during his rookie season, he'll likely be asked to play a more limited role off the bench. In addition to Korver, Prince will likely find himself behind Kent Bazemore and Thabo Sefolosha on the depth chart at the two wing spots to open the campaign.
