Fantasy Basketball 2010-2011 Team Preview: Atlanta Hawks (9/13/10)

The Hawks didn’t make many changes this offseason and the fantasy options on the team should perform very similarly to last season.  The biggest change to the club was the firing of Mike Woodson, who was replaced by Larry Drew.  I’ve read a few reports that indicate that Drew is trying to implement more of a motion offense and hoping to cut down on the isolation plays, which isn’t good for Joe Johnson owners.  Mike Bibby should return to the starting point guard spot, but Jeff Teague is making a claim for more playing time.  Joe Johnson will start at SG, Marvin Williams at SF, Josh Smith at PF and Al Horford at C.  Jamal Crawford will again be the team’s valuable sixth man.  Johnson, Smith and Horford are all top fantasy options this year.
