Depth chart:
PG: Mike Bibby, Jeff Teague
SG: Joe Johnson, Jamal Crawford, Jordan Crawford, Pape Sy
SF: Marvin Williams, Maurice Evans
PF: Josh Smith, Josh Powell
C: Al Horford, Zaza Pachulia, Etan Thomas, Jason Collins

Relevant fantasy players and projected draft positions/per-game stats:
Josh Smith – PF (Rd. 2): 16 Pts, 9 Reb, 3.5 Ast, 1.5 Stl, 2 Blk
Al Horford – F/C (Rd. 2-3): 15 Pts, 10.5 Reb, 2.5 Ast, 1 Stl, 1.5 Blk
Joe Johnson – G/F (Rd. 2-3): 20 Pts, 2 threes, 4.5 Reb, 4.5 Ast, 1 Stl
Jamal Crawford – G (Rd. 6-7): 17.5 Pts, 2 threes, 2 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl
Marvin Williams – F (Rd. 11+): 10 Pts, 4.5 Reb, 1 Stl
Mike Bibby – PG (Rd. 13+): 7 Pts, 1 three, 3 Ast
Jeff Teague – PG (Rd. 13+): 10 Pts, 3.5 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl

Sleeper:
Teague

Most likely to surprise:
Horford

Most likely to disappoint:
Johnson

Category specialists:

  • Threes: Crawford

Things to watch:

  • if the coach Larry Drew’s faster motion offense does, indeed, weigh down Johnson‘s numbers
  • if Horford ends up starting at PF, which would move Williams to the bench and open up minutes for the three-headed monster at C
  • when, not if, Teague usurps Bibby at PG

  • Pts: T12th
  • FGM: T6th
  • FGA: 12th
