Hawks All-Star point guard Trae Young is wants to improve his conditioning level this offseason in an effort to "play at 100% for a longer period of time on both ends." (Chris Kirschner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Trae Young was an offensive dynamo in his sophomore campaign, putting up 29.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, 9.3 assists, along with 3.4 triples per night. He even contributed on the defensive end for fantasy owners, swiping 1.1 steals per contest. However, fantasy does not always translate to reality. It's known that Young is constantly tested on the defensive end of the floor and it doesn't help that the Hawks held the third-worst in defensive efficiency rating as a team this season. Clearly, defense needs to be a priority to be more competitive next season and it starts with Young. Young's matured into the leader of the youthful Hawks and will need to be the engine that elevates their game on both ends of the floor if they want to put more "W's" in the win column. Young has all of the upside you want in a fantasy player and should be selected within the first 20 picks next season.
