Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

Joe Ingles scored nine points (4-of-6 FGs) with one rebound, eight assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Cavaliers on Friday.

Ingles has now dropped eight dimes in three straight games with Ricky Rubio (hamstring) and Dante Exum (ankle) out. His scoring has dipped the last two games, but neither game was close so the Jazz didn't need him to score. If only trash-talking counted towards fantasy output because Ingles would be a first rounder.

Derrick Favors double-doubled against the Cavaliers on Friday, scoring 12 points (4-of-11 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with 10 rebounds, one block and one steal in 23 minutes.

Favors is only playing minutes in the low-20s, but he's still being productive in his time on the floor. Three of his six double-doubles on the season have come in his last five games, including back-to-back games now. Favors won't put up eye-popping numbers most nights, but he's still posting fringe top-100 value in 9-category leagues on the season.

Rudy Gobert was a monster against the Cavaliers on Friday, scoring 19 points (8-of-10 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with 15 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and two steals in 27 minutes.

Gobert tied Joel Embiid for the league lead in double-doubles with his effort in this one, as both are now sitting at 38 on the season. He continues to score at a career-best rate and is surprisingly over the 2.0 assist per game mark for the first time in his career. Including tonight, he’s blocked multiple shots in five straight games, which is the fourth time he’s done so this season. Gobert is one of the best centers in fantasy basketball.
Jan 18 - 11:34 PM

Donovan Mitchell kept it rolling on Friday, scoring 24 points (9-of-15 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) with two rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Cavaliers.

Mitchell scored 20 or more points for the eighth straight game, which is his longest such streak of the season. He’s been excelling with Ricky Rubio (hamstring) out of the lineup. Over the previous five games prior to this one, all with Rubio unavailable, he’s averaging 31.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 3.0 triples on a sterling 50% shooting. This stretch has seen Mitchell post top-20 value in 9-category leagues. The next step will be for him to continue with this level of production when Rubio returns.
Jan 18 - 11:28 PM

Royce O'Neale was outstanding on Friday against the Cavaliers, scoring 16 points (6-of-8 FGs) with 11 rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

O’Neale notched his first double-double of the season and just the second of his career. He’s started the past five games with the Jazz down three guards and has performed quite well. In those five starts, O’Neale is averaging 9.0 points, 7.6 boards, 2.6 dimes, 1.2 steals and 1.8 triples in 34.2 minutes per game. He’s not the most attractive fantasy player, but he’s worth owning in most leagues while the Jazz are short-handed.

Donovan Mitchell said he will skip the Dunk Contest next month.

Mitchell explained that he wants to stay fresh for the second half of the season. "I remember last year when I came back from All-Star [weekend], I was tired. … We haven’t really taken off like we thought we would have, so it would be better just to rest and mentally be focused for the second half," said Mitchell.

Willie Reed suffered a season-ending shoulder injury on Wednesday.

Reed was playing for Utah's G-League squad, but they'll be waiving him now that he's done for the year, and he has a long recovery ahead of him.

Kyle Korver - G/F - Jazz

Kyle Korver came off the bench for 19 points, two rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes, making 5-of-8 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws with four 3-pointers.

Korver also went off for 19 points with five 3-pointers on Monday, prompting coach Quin Snyder to praise his contributions. "That’s why we felt [Korver] would be an excellent addition," Snyder said. "I think our guys are getting comfortable with him." Korver was a non-factor for fantasy purposes with Cleveland, but at worst he's a solid 3-point specialist -- since joining the Jazz this year he's made 2.2 triples per game.

Rudy Gobert notched his 37th double-double of the season on Wednesday with 23 points (7-of-10 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs), 22 rebounds, four blocks, one assist, one steal and zero turnovers in 34 minutes.

This puts Gobert into a tie with Joel Embiid for the league-lead for double-doubles, ahead of guys like Andre Drummond, Anthony Davis, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Clint Capela and Karl-Anthony Towns. Gobert also ranks fifth in the league with 2.0 blocks per game, and he leads the NBA in field-goal percentage at a tremendous 65.1%. That adds up to top-20 value in nearly any category, and he's a truly elite roto option if you can toss out his poor FT shooting (63.9% on 5.8 attempts).

Donovan Mitchell finished Wednesday's road win vs. the Clippers with a team-high 28 points (10-of-22 FGs, 8-of-8 FTs), six assists, three steals and two rebounds.

Fresh off being named Western Conference Player of the Week, it doesn't seem like Mitchell is about to slow down. He averaged 31.5 points, 5.8 assists and 4.3 rebounds last week and his team needs him more than ever with a banged-up backcourt and a tenuous grasp on the postseason. He's surging into early-round fantasy value over the past few weeks, which is where owners expected him to be all year as a top-50 draft pick.
Jan 17 - 1:36 AM

Jae Crowder scored 23 points on 8-of-15 shooting Wednesday, making five 3-pointers with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 29 minutes.

Crowder's shooting has been brutal lately, as he came in averaging just 7.0 points on 18.9% shooting in his previous six games. That included a 12.1% mark from downtown, and it's demolished any fantasy appeal as a source of triples, rebounds and defensive stats. The good news is that his role is safe and coach Quin Snyder loves him, saying after Monday's game, "Jae didn’t shoot well, but he didn’t let it impact his defense. He fought like crazy on [Blake] Griffin." Nevertheless, most fantasy owners should look elsewhere for value on the waiver wire.
Jan 17 - 1:35 AM

Dante Exum (left ankle sprain) will be re-evaluated in two more weeks.

His last update on Jan. 7 said the same thing. There's no word on his progress, but it sounds like Ricky Rubio (hamstring) will beat him back to the floor which ruins most of Exum's stash appeal in deeper leagues.

Raul Neto (groin) will be re-evaluated in another week.

Ricky Rubio (hamstring) is out for at least another week as well, while Dante Exum (ankle) is at least a couple weeks away. Unless he beats Rubio back to the floor, Neto will have very little fantasy appeal.

Thabo Sefolosha (right hamstring) will be re-evaluated in another week.

The Jazz offered no details on his recovery, but once he's cleared he'll have a very limited role on the wings. Kyle Korver has been a solid 3-point streamer lately with 3.0 treys per game over his last five outings.

Ricky Rubio (hamstring) will miss at least another week of action.

He was re-evaluated on Tuesday, but the Jazz didn't offer any details about his progress. He will be re-evaluated in another week, and hopefully we'll get a target date the next time around. Dante Exum (ankle) is out for another couple weeks and Raul Neto (groin) will miss at least another week, so the Jazz will continue to rely on their multi-wing lineups with Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles running the offense.
