Player News - Jazz

Date: Team: Pos:

Donovan Mitchell hit 6-of-19 shots and 1-of-7 3-pointers for 17 points, four rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 37 minutes of Monday's ugly loss to the Sixers.

He easily led the team in minutes tonight and while his shooting wasn't great, the numbers were just fine. Mitchell looks like he's going to be a must-start fantasy player for the entire season and it was nice to see him stuff the stat sheet on a night when his shot wasn't falling.
Nov 20 - 9:43 PM

Ricky Rubio hit 5-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, three steals, a block and six turnovers in 22 minutes of Monday's blowout loss to the Sixers.

Rubio hasn't played well for most of this season, but finally looked better tonight. Hopefully his achilles injury is behind him and this will be the start of a hot streak for Rubio.
Nov 20 - 9:41 PM

Derrick Favors hit 3-of-8 shots for nine points, seven rebounds and a block in Monday's 107-86 loss to the Sixers.

Favors had to deal with The Process tonight and was a far cry from the guy who posted 25 points and 11 rebounds on 10-of-12 shooting on Saturday. Favors is still worth owning as long as Rudy Gobert is out, despite the inconsistency.
Nov 20 - 9:39 PM

Jonas Jerebko hit just 1-of-5 shots (a 3-pointer) for three points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 20 minutes of Monday's loss to the Sixers.

Jerebko was dealing with an illness coming in and had a season-high 15 points, six boards, a steal and a 3-pointer on Saturday, but never got it going tonight. He's worth keeping an eye on with Rudy Gobert injured and makes for an interesting punt option in DFS, but he's not someone who should be rostered in most 12-team leagues.
Nov 20 - 9:36 PM

Jonas Jerebko (illness) is good to go on Monday vs. Philly.

He participated in the morning shootaround and will play despite being under the weather. His upside will be limited with Thabo Sefolosha playing, so he doesn't belong in most fantasy lineups anyways.
Nov 20 - 11:43 AM

Thabo Sefolosha (knee) will play on Monday vs. Philly.

He was originally considered probable, so this isn't a surprise. Sefolosha has been more involved these days with Joe Johnson and Rudy Gobert on the sidelines, but he's more of a steals specialist with nine steals over his past four appearances. It's unclear if the Jazz will start Sefolosha or Jonas Jerebko vs. the 76ers.
Nov 20 - 11:24 AM

Thabo Sefolosha (knee) is probable to play Monday vs. Philadelphia.

Sefolosha looked fined in his return from a one-game absence on Saturday, so he should be just fine for Monday's game in Philly. Sefolosha will have the opportunity for more minutes while Rudy Gobert (knee) is out, but he's nothing more than a steals specialist in deep leagues.

Rodney Hood - G/F - Jazz

Rodney Hood thrived off the bench against the Magic on Saturday, scoring 31 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and seven 3-pointers in just 26 minutes.

He has the greenest of lights off the bench and came into this game with 18.0 points and 3.4 treys in his previous five games in the second unit. There are not many reliable offensive weapons off the bench, so he'll have every opportunity to score 20 per game like the Jazz were hoping for. He'll need to stay healthy, but things are looking up after a letdown in 2016-17.
Nov 18 - 10:23 PM

Derrick Favors made 10-of-12 from the field and all five free throws for a season-high 25 points with 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 25 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

Besides the awesome stat line, this was probably the best Favors has looked all year. He was battling for position down low and he is establishing a nice rapport with Donovan Mitchell -- the guard threw one off the glass to feed Favors for a dunk. He is easily a beneficiary from the Rudy Gobert (knee) and things are looking up now that he looks spry again. He could be a sell-high player, but there's a good chance Favors cruises in the next month.
Nov 18 - 10:22 PM

Donovan Mitchell scored 12 points with six rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

He's really starting to look like a point guard and his ability to hit open shooters really showed up in both games. He's coming off a career-high eight dimes and he handled the ball a lot more even with Ricky Rubio next to him. Mitchell has likely secured a role around 30 minutes no matter who is active and he's on a heater over his last five, averaging 19.2 points, 4.8 boards, 4.2 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.2 treys on 47.4 percent from the field and 91.7 percent from the line in that span. He's one of the best rookies in fantasy and that should continue all season.
Nov 18 - 10:16 PM

Ricky Rubio scored nine points with six rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 16 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

He was expected to play 25 minutes, but he didn't need to because the Jazz won this by 40. For what it's worth, Rubio did look like he was moving around better, but he did miss some wide open shots. The bad news is Donovan Mitchell is handling the ball a lot more than expected, so that may explain the decline in dimes. Achilles issues can linger for a while, so hopefully the game off can get Rubio back on track. He does make some sense as a buy-low player, but only if it's at a heavy discount.
Nov 18 - 10:13 PM

Jonas Jerebko scored a season-high 15 points with six rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

He's been a sneaky beneficiary from the Rudy Gobert (knee) injury. In those five games, Jerebko averaged 8.8 points, 3.6 boards, 1.6 treys and 0.6 steals. He can probably flirt with this output for the next couple weeks, so give him a look this appeals to you.
Nov 18 - 10:01 PM

Thabo Sefolosha scored eight points against the Magic on Saturday after a one-game absence, adding four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes.

He is probably going to wind up starting in some games, but the odds of that may have gone down given the 40-point win today. Sefolosha is a steals specialist in deeper leagues.
Nov 18 - 9:57 PM

Raul Neto scored nine points with two rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 24 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

He did some damage in garbage time and he had a ridiculous +44 in this 40-point win. Among players this century with 24 or fewer minutes, only Wally Szczerbiak had a better plus/minus with +50 in 2001. Crazy stat aside, Neto is going to lose run now that Ricky Rubio is back. Not a bad weekend with his career-high 22 on Friday, though.
Nov 18 - 9:52 PM
Rodney Hood - G/F - Jazz

Ricky Rubio, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Jonas Jerebko and Derrick Favors will start against the Magic on Saturday.

That means Rodney Hood moves back to the bench just like he was before Rubio missed Friday. Hood is still taking a ton of shots off the bench and he'll probably close this game out if the game is close. The production is there and he likely just needs to stay healthy.
