As you know, we are doing a season long daily fantasy basketball series, sponsored by our friends over at FanDuel. As you watch me go broke over there, you may wonder how the Hawks roster is valued in the daily game.

So over the course of the season, we're going to look at the rise and fall of player values as it relates to the daily fantasy basketball game.

First, let's do a refresher on how the scoring works in this game, so that the dollar values reflected makes sense.

Scoring Categories
Point = 1pt, Rebound = 1.2pts, Assist = 1.5pts, Block = 2pts, Steal = 2pts, Turnover = -1pt

Now, let's list the players out with their fantasy points per game, their salary and the difference from the last time we checked on their status, almost two months ago.

Pos Name Salary Difference
PF Paul Millsap $8,200 -400
PG Jeff Teague $8,500 1,500
C Al Horford $7,800 900
SG Kyle Korver $5,300 -100
SF DeMarre Carroll $5,400 100
SG Thabo Sefolosha $3,900 -800
PG Dennis Schröder $5,000 1,200
PF Mike Muscala $3,500 -200
PF Adreian Payne $3,500 -100
C Pero Antic $3,500 0
SG John Jenkins $3,500 0
PF Mike Scott $3,500 0
SG Kent Bazemore $3,500 0
PF Elton Brand $3,500 0
PG Shelvin Mack $3,500 0

Jeff Teague! He's has risen above the Brandon Knight/Derrick Rose price level and getting close to a Ty Lawson/Kyrie Irving level of salary. Millsap is down a little, but still in between the Markieff Morris/Kenneth Faried level and below the LaMarcus Aldridge/Pau Gasol territory.

As Al Horford has gotten his conditioning in line, his production and salary has risen. Horford is now in the same range as Dwight Howard, DeAndre Jordan and Andre Drummond, leaving former Gator teammate Joakim Noah behind with other centers such as Gorgui Dieng and Tyson Chandler.

Finally, with Teague missing some time and getting a day of rest last week, the price on Dennis Schröder has risen, but will likely go back down as the span of games Dennis played for Teague slowly rolls off the algorithms.
