Shelvin Mack scored 17 points with four assists, three rebounds and two triples in 28 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.
Both Mack and Dante Exum saw extended minutes with George Hill (thumb) and Rodney Hood (illness) out, but since both of those guys are day-to-day, there's no reason to give Mack a look outside of deeper leagues. Prior to Monday, he was averaging 20.0 minutes per game. Nov 15 - 12:00 AM

Date:

Shelvin Mack scored nine points with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes off the bench against the Magic on Friday.

The Jazz shifted him back to his role as a second-string point guard. George Hill (thumb) is getting closer anyway, so his fantasy owners can think about dropping him.
Nov 11 - 11:39 PM

Shelvin Mack will come off the bench on Friday against the Magic.

The Jazz have been able to shift Exum more to the one and he's played well. Mack has actually not played next to Exum at all in the last two, so he's likely just getting a switch to the second unit. Expect him to be in the low 20s, but he should have a higher usage rate.
Nov 11 - 5:48 PM

Shelvin Mack started Wednesday's loss vs. Charlotte, posting six points on 3-of-11 shooting with five assists, three rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes of action.

Mack earned the start with George Hill (sprained thumb) unavailable, but he could head back to the bench as soon as Friday's game vs. the Magic. Even as a fill-in starter he doesn't have much appeal with Dante Exum (six points in 24 minutes) healthy and so many ball-handlers on the Jazz roster.
Nov 9 - 9:50 PM

Shelvin Mack will get another start for George Hill (thumb) on Wednesday.

He played 29 minutes in his last start and is likely looking at a similar workload in a really tough matchup against Kemba Walker. The Jazz did shift Dante Exum over to the one spot with Hill out, which hasn't been case for the most part. Mack is a cheap DFS option.
Nov 9 - 5:39 PM

Shelvin Mack got the start over George Hill (thumb) on Monday, finishing with eight points, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Not bad, and he was a tad better than Dante Exum, who had 11 points, zero assists, a block and three 3-pointers off the bench. Hill sounds like he'll be back in the next one, but if he's not, Mack or Exum might be worth a flier for one more game.
Nov 7 - 10:15 PM

Shelvin Mack will enter the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the 76ers, with George Hill (thumb) unavailable.

Through 27 games as a starter with Utah last season, Mack compiled averages of 12.6 points, 5.3 assists, 3.8 boards, 1.0 steal and 1.3 triples per contest, so he's certainly on the radar as a potential DFS option with an incredibly favorable matchup against the 76ers. Joe Johnson could also see some extended minutes with the second unit, and it'll be Rodney Hood and Gordon Hayward running the show with the first unit.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: He's not the safest of cash game targets, but Mack is an appealing upside play against a PHI team that has played at the 11th fastest pace this season. With Hayward, Hood and Favors likely to eat up most of the production with the first unit, Mack does still carry a low floor, but if the Jazz choose to ease up on Hayward/Favors on the second-half of a B2B with both players recently returning from injury, Mack would benefit.

Shelvin Mack hit 6-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points and a steal in just 19 minutes on Tuesday.

The Jazz bench hit six 3-pointers tonight and the starters added another nine, and the Spurs simply couldn't overcome it. Mack has done next to nothing this season, George Hill is super hot, and Mack played just 19 minutes. Ignore him for now.
Nov 2 - 12:25 AM

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.
Jul 6 - 10:25 AM

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.
Jun 26 - 11:23 AM

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.
