Shelvin Mack fared well off the bench on Monday, posting 14 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and three assists in 16 minutes during and easy win vs. the Clippers.
Mack has played between 12-27 minutes in each game this preseason, turning in averages of 8.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 0.8 steals. The bad news is that he's buried in a backcourt rotation that includes George Hill, Dante Exum, Alec Burks, Rodney Hood and Raul Neto, which eradicates his fantasy appeal. Oct 17 - 11:36 PM

Utah is expected to guarantee Shelvin Mack's contract on Thursday, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News.

Mack's deal calls for him to make about $2.4 million, but it was non-guaranteed and Utah could have simply moved on from him if they had chosen to do so. Now, the veteran point guard will be on the books for 2016-17 and should serve behind Dante Exum and George Hill on the depth chart.

The Jazz might look to trade Shelvin Mack, Trey Burke and/or Raul Neto this summer.

The Jazz have a serious logjam at point guard and this report makes sense because George Hill and Dante Exum (knee) will likely get the bulk of the PG minutes. The Jazz are still expected to exercise their player option on Mack for the 2016-17 season, but Mack likely has more trade value than both Burke and Neto. It's tough to imagine Mack having fantasy value if he stays in Utah.

The Jazz are expected to exercise their player option on Shelvin Mack for the 2016-17 season.

Mack played well for the Jazz after a mid-season trade with the Hawks, averaging 12.7 points, 5.3 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 0.9 steals, 1.3 3-pointers and 2.9 turnovers. He said that he's unsure of what his role will be wih Dante Exum (knee) coming back, but he said he's ready to compete for playing time. "It's not something that I've thought that much about," Mack said. "I know that Dante's a great player and the organization has a lot invested in him. I'm ready to compete, but I have to control the things I can control." When asked what he wants to improve on this summer, Mack said he wants to be a better spot-up shooter.
Apr 15 - 10:24 AM

Shelvin Mack hit 6-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in Tuesday's loss.

More assists would have been nice, but he played pretty well against the Spurs. He's having a nice season and is worth using as a starting point guard in all formats the rest of the way.
Apr 6 - 1:00 AM

Shelvin Mack finished Sunday's 101-86 road win with nine points, seven boards, five assists, two blocks and one turnover in 35 minutes.

Mack has settled in nicely as Utah's starting PG, averaging career highs in scoring (12.5), threes (1.3), rebounding (3.8), assists (5.7) and steals (1.1). He won't help you in the percentage categories, though, and is better suited to leagues that don't penalize turnovers (3.0 in his past 10 games).
Apr 3 - 9:08 PM

Shelvin Mack made 6-of-12 from the field for 16 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Wolves on Friday.

It's been a bumpy ride for Mack with efficiency, but he is producing a bunch of stats. Mack surpassed almost all expectations in March, averaging 12.2 points, 4.3 boards, 6.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 treys on 41.7 percent from the field. He gets a great matchup in Phoenix on Sunday.
Apr 2 - 12:26 AM

Shelvin Mack made 5-of-17 from the field for 12 points with six rebounds, nine assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He had one of the best plus-minuses in NBA history on Monday at plus-48, but he hurt his team in this game. Mack has been all over the place with a lot of inconsistency with a 3-of-14 shooting line back on Saturday. He's fantasy hoops' box of chocolates because you never know what you're going to get.
Mar 31 - 12:04 AM

Shelvin Mack scored 17 points with three rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Lakers on Monday.

He was slumping, but the Lakers defense helped him out there. Mack has three more games this week and it looks like he should be able to hold enough value in standard leagues the rest of the way despite some possible inconsistencies.
Mar 29 - 1:30 AM

Shelvin Mack made 3-of-14 from the field for six points with two rebounds, six assists, two steals and two turnovers against the Wolves on Saturday.

That's two bad ones in a row from Mack with a six-point, five-turnover game on Thursday. Mack's fantasy owners are in a tight spot here because he has four games this week. His owners will have to weigh whether they want to risk field goal percentage and turnovers this week.
Mar 27 - 12:32 AM

Shelvin Mack scored six points with two rebounds, four assists, three steals and five turnovers against the Thunder on Thursday.

He wasn't going to stay hot forever as a shooter, but at least he added some output in steals and dimes. Although, his turnovers are out of control right now with 5.7 per game over his last three. Mack is still worth owning in standard leagues even though his body of work suggests more struggles are coming.
Mar 25 - 12:35 AM

Shelvin Mack scored 16 points with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He's inexplicably stayed hot and is crushing his competition for minutes. In his last seven games, Mack averaged 16.7 points, 4.9 boards, 7.9 assists, 1.0 steals, 3.9 turnovers and 2.4 treys on 51.7 percent from the field. He's quickly turned into a must-start player while he's rolling like this.
Mar 23 - 11:25 PM

Shelvin Mack posted another strong double-double on Sunday, scoring 13 points and handed out 12 assists to help the Jazz beat the Bucks in Milwaukee.

Mack turned the ball over six times but that's the only real caveat, as he shot 5-of-11 from the field with one 3-pointer, four rebounds and one steal in 38 minutes of action. After a bumpy start in Utah, Mack has settled down as a reliable fantasy option -- in his past five games he's averaging 14.8 points, 2.2 triples, 5.8 boards, 9.6 assists and 1.0 steals. Keep him in all active lineups.
Mar 20 - 10:17 PM

Shelvin Mack stayed hot on Saturday vs. the Bulls with 15 points, eight assists, five boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He's been playing really well over his last five games with averages of 17.6 points, 8.0 assists, 5.6 boards, 0.8 steals, 2.6 3-pointers and 3.0 turnovers. "I’m just getting comfortable," Mack said. "It takes time to get comfortable with your teammates. I think I found the way to get into the groove." He could lose value when Alec Burks (leg) eventually returns, but Mack is worth owning while he's hot.
Mar 19 - 10:48 PM

Shelvin Mack scored 17 points with 10 assists, seven boards, one steal and three 3-pointers in a win over the Cavaliers on Monday.

The assists were a season high and Mack really stepped up for the Jazz along with Rodney Hood in the absence of Gordon Hayward (foot). It would make sense for the Jazz to rest Hayward against the Suns on Thursday before they head out on a five-game road trip, so Mack is worth a look right now while he's hot.
