Matchups: Get Crawford in your lineup
The Hawks guard should have a big week, while other wings are in for a tough time
Using opponent data for each team on the following week's schedule, Basketball Prospectus can estimate how much a player's performance will vary because of the defenses he will face in the next week. (See here for more details on the process.) Each week, Kevin Pelton will take a look at five players to use, five to limit and an ideal pickup.
All three of the Hawks' opponents next week allow at least 7 percent more productivity than average to wings. Friday's Southeast Division showdown with the Miami Heat might not seem favorable, but Crawford has averaged a solid 15.5 points and 4.0 assists against the Heat so far this season.
To read the rest of Basketball Prospectus' list of five must-start players, five players with tough schedules in the coming week and one player to target on your waiver wire, you must be an ESPN Insider.
