Date:

Shelvin Mack will start and Dante Exum will move to the bench on Saturday against the Kings.

Exum hasn't really done too much in the starting lineup and the Jazz do need some help on the wing, so the move makes sense. He is not doing much on the stat sheet and is really just out there for defense. He's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Dec 10 - 7:31 PM

Dante Exum started at point guard again on Thursday and hit just 1-of-11 shots for two points and five assists in 37 minutes.

Exum has been given a great opportunity with George Hill (toe) out for five games, but hasn't taken advantage of it. He's averaging just 6.8 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0 steals and 0.8 3-pointers on 35 percent shooting over his last five games. Shelvin Mack looks like a safer option, as long as Hill remains out with his injury.
Dec 9 - 12:08 AM

Dante Exum is starting at point guard for George Hill (toe) on Thursday.

He should get plenty of minutes tonight with Rodney Hood (hamstring) also out. Exum doesn't have much upside because of low per-minute output, so he's not really worth grabbing in most leagues.
Dec 1 - 8:42 PM

Dante Exum is likely to start against the Heat on Thursday.

George Hill (toe) is back on the shelf, so the Jazz will go back to making Exum a point guard and not a combo guard. In his previous six starts, Exum averaged 9.5 points, 3.5 boards, 1.7 assists and 0.8 treys in 29.8 minutes. The minutes will be there, but his upside isn't the greatest.
Dec 1 - 2:17 PM

Dante Exum scored a season-high 14 points against the Bulls on Thursday, adding four rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He was 5-of-12 from the field and didn't turn the ball over in his best offensive game of the season. The Jazz are missing George Hill (thumb) at the point and obviously Exum hasn't taken minutes from him. That said, he's been decent as a ball-handler, so maybe coach Quin Snyder shifts him to run the offense more in the second team -- he was off ball before the Hill injury. Exum isn't worth adding after this solid game.
Nov 18 - 1:09 AM

Dante Exum made his second start for George Hill (thumb) on Saturday against the Heat, finishing with 10 points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

Not all point guards run the offense and Mr. Exum does not. He'll likely shift to more of a shooting guard once George Hill (thumb) comes back. His upside is too low to grab in most leagues.
Nov 13 - 12:56 AM

Dante Exum will start again to face the Heat on Saturday.

He is not going to be used too much in the offense with Gordon Hayward and Rodney Hood doing the heavy lifting on the outside. Exum isn't the greatest fantasy play tonight due to his low usage and lack of other stats.
Nov 12 - 6:43 PM

Dante Exum scored four points with four rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in his first start of the season on Friday.

The Jazz drafted him as a point guard and they were probably hoping to build their offense off Exum pick-and-roll plays, but they've pretty much come to grips with him as an off-ball guy. He wasn't really creating tonight with both Gordon Hayward and Rodney Hood having plenty of offense run through them. Exum's fantasy ceiling is very low.
Nov 11 - 11:46 PM

Dante Exum will start on Friday vs. the Magic, sending Shelvin Mack to the bench.

George Hill (thumb) has missed three straight games, but his status is unclear for Saturday's game vs. Boston. Exum is more of a defender at this point in his career and is averaging 6.3 points, 2.1 boards, 1.7 assists and 0.8 triples, so he's still not an exciting short-term option.
Nov 11 - 5:47 PM

Dante Exum played just eight minutes vs. the Blazers on Tuesday, scoring five points with two rebounds in eight minutes.

It looked like he was going to be completely out of the rotation with Shelvin Mack entering the game first, but they used Exum off the ball at SG. The Jazz love his defense, but he doesn’t do nearly enough on the offensive end to help fantasy owners. He could lose even more minutes when the Jazz are at full strength, so that doesn’t help Exum’s case either.
Oct 26 - 1:15 AM

Dante Exum scored a team-high 18 points vs. the Suns on Wednesday, making 5-of-10 FGs and 8-of-9 FTs with three assists, one rebound and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

Rodney Hood was out with a sprained hand, which thrust Exum into the starting five alongside George Hill, and he took full advantage of the opportunity. Exum's length allows him to defend opposing SGs but he's unlikely to see a ton of minutes at the two when Utah is healthy. He's predominantly a backup PG behind George Hill, which caps his appeal in re-draft leagues.
Oct 13 - 12:18 AM

Dante Exum will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's preseason game against the Suns, with Rodney Hood (hand) unavailable.

Exum should have a ton of opportunity tonight with Derrick Favors (knee), Gordon Hayward (finger) and Hood all on the sidelines, so it'll be interesting to see what he can do in an expanded role. He's still not a great standard league target considering he'll be serving as George Hill's backup this year.
Oct 12 - 1:40 PM

Dante Exum (knee) practiced on Friday.

The Jazz took him out on Wednesday as a precaution, but he didn't receive too much medical attention. Exum got the start at shooting guard in that game, but he'll likely be moving to the bench with Rodney Hood back at practice.
Oct 7 - 2:46 PM

Jazz head coach Quin Snyder said Dante Exum (knee) was removed from Wednesday's game as a precaution.

Exum left Wednesday's game with a hyperextended left knee, but Snyder said the team was just playing it safe as the 21-year-old comes back from a torn ACL in the same knee. "That was clearly precautionary," Snyder said. "He's fine." While Exum has upside, he isn't a viable option in standard fantasy leagues just yet.
