2019 Fantasy Outlook
Expectations are growing for Trae Young and the Hawks heading into the 2019-20 season, as the point guard is coming off a stellar second half of his rookie campaign that made for a competitive Rookie of the Year race down the stretch. In 81 appearances and starts last season, Young averaged 19.1 points, 8.1 assists and 3.7 rebounds, but it's his post-All-Star break numbers that really stand out. In his final 23 games of the regular season, Young averaged 24.7 points, 9.2 assists and 4.7 rebounds across 33.1 minutes per game, and his three-point shooting percentage raised from 31.2 percent to 34.8 percent during that stretch. His 30.8 percent usage rate after the All-Star break would rank in the top 10 among all eligible NBA players. Heading into his sophomore season, Young's usage is not expected to dip. The offense operated at its best with Young as the focal point, and he will now be surrounded by even more young talent with the addition of De'Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish in the first round of the 2019 draft.

Drops team-high 31 points

November 17, 2019
Young had 31 points (11-22 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and two steals in 39 minutes during Sunday's 122-101 loss to the Lakers.
ANALYSIS
Young put the Hawks on his back during Sunday's game but it wasn't enough as they fell to the Lakers. Young was basically the only bright spot in what was another disappointing game from a team perspective. With both John Collins (suspension) and Kevin Huerter (shoulder) on the sidelines, Young has the green light to do whatever he wants out there. The worry is that if the Hawks continue to struggle, Young's playing time could take a hit. Those with him on their roster simply have to cross their fingers and hope the Hawks can stay competitive moving forward.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Young burst onto the college basketball scene as a freshman at Oklahoma, with his electric scoring ability and three-point range instantly drawing comparisons to NBA champion Steph Curry. Young would ultimately finish the season as Division 1's leading scorer (27.4 points per game) and assist man (8.7 per game), while hitting 118 three-pointers. He chipped in with 3.9 rebounds and 1.7 steals as well, while knocking down 36 percent of his deep balls. There are a few concerns with Young's transition to the NBA. He's only 6-foot-2 and doesn't have much length, so he could struggle to gain separation offensively, as well as keep some of the league's taller guards in check on the defensive side of the ball. There were also times when he disappeared against some of the better teams in the NCAA and his specific skill-set as a deep-ball threat poses potential issues with his efficiency. That said, Young is heading into an extremely advantageous situation after being drafted by the Hawks with the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Atlanta traded last year's starting point guard, Dennis Schroder, to the Thunder this offseason, which should give Young an opportunity to jump into the starting unit right away. Jeremy Lin was added to the roster and could start if Young struggles during training camp or the preseason, but it's still Young's job to lose. As a result, the 19-year-old is slated for big minutes from the get go and is easily one of the more intriguing rookies from this year's class when looking at Fantasy potential. Lin should help take the pressure off Young at times and fellow youngsters Taurean Prince and John Collins are also on the rise, so the first-round pick should have some solid pieces alongside him to boost his assist numbers. Expectations will be high going into the season, though as mentioned previously, Fantasy owners will have to keep in mind his status as a rookie, as well as the potential for inefficiency issues going up against NBA talent.
