Donovan Mitchell made 10-of-21 from the field for 28 points during a 98-86 win over the Celtics on Saturday, adding three rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block, three turnovers and five 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He was hard on himself in a loss to Philly because of 35 shots with no dimes, but coach Quin Snyder came to his defense before the game today. "The last thing we need from Donovan is for him to feel somehow that him shooting the ball is a selfish act, because him not shooting is more selfish given his role on the team," Snyder said. The runner up for Rookie of the Year still hasn't lived up to the billing for his high ADP, but he did start slow last year, too. Expect him to get it going in the near future.
Nov 17 - 11:52 PM

Ricky Rubio made 6-of-13 from the field for 20 points with four rebounds, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

He needed a strong offensive game after topping more than 13 points just once in his previous seven games. Besides how he was making just 36.3 percent from the field in his previous games this month, Rubio has been producing as expected with 3.8 boards, 6.8 dimes, 1.9 steals and 1.1 treys. Anyone who has owned him knows he's been awful to start the year and lit it up after the break in each of the last two seasons, so he could be a buy-low option.
Nov 17 - 11:48 PM

Rudy Gobert scored 12 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals in 31 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

The Jazz defense was back and their first unit played some of their best ball of the year. Gobert has been fairly consistent on the season with scoring in the low teens as he racks up the double-doubles, but his seven-game double-double streak came to an end tonight. He'll continue to be a top-30 player in standard leagues.
Nov 17 - 11:40 PM

Raul Neto (hamstring) is available to play Saturday vs. the Celtics.

Neto injured his hamstring back in September and has yet to make his 2018-19 season debut for the Jazz. However, even when fully healthy, he will only see limited minuted as the team's third PG behind Ricky Rubio and Dante Exum. He should be left on waivers.
Nov 17 - 12:30 PM

Donovan Mitchell made 13-of-35 from the field for 31 points with two rebounds, one block, four steals and one 3-pointer during a 113-107 loss in Philly on Friday.

The Philly fans were booing him every time he touched the ball and apparently didn't forget about Mitchell's rookie sweatshirt. His 43.8 usage rate matches his career-high, and perhaps taking just nine shots in a brutal loss to Dallas on Wednesday -- their 68 points was the fewest since 2016. He's been a fantasy letdown to this point, but Mitchell should find his rhythm at some point in the near future.
Nov 16 - 10:12 PM

Rudy Gobert scored 12 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

He's up to seven straight double-doubles and sits No. 2 in the NBA in that department with 14 -- Joel Embiid is first. Gobert held his own against Joel Embiid in just his second matchup against The Process. Gobert has been better than expected in boards while solid in the other counting stats, but he needs to knock down free throws. He's still be a top-30 player even with the woeful 59.6 FT%.

Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

Joe Ingles scored 14 with two rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

He had tape on his right hand and he had to get it re-taped in the second half, but he returned. Ingles has been fairly steady all season with 33.4 minutes in both months this season, but he's uncharacteristically missed a lot of free throws at just a 63.4 FT%. He'll be fine as a top 50-75 player going forward.
Nov 16 - 9:59 PM

Jae Crowder made just 2-of-12 shots (1-of-9 3PT) for five points and one rebound in 22 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

Crowder has now had back-to-back rough shooting nights. However, he wasn't alone in this one as the Jazz were beaten by 50 points. He's a crucial piece for the Jazz and will continue to produce standard league value going forward.
Nov 15 - 12:04 AM

Dante Exum scored just three points in 21 minutes against the Mavs on Monday.

Exum has been playing limited minutes off the bench lately and can be safely left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Nov 15 - 12:01 AM

Derrick Favors scored eight points (4-of-8 FG, 0-of-1 3PT) with four rebounds, one steal, and two blocks in 22 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

Favors has been solid of late, averaging 11.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.6 steals, and 1.6 blocks over his last five games. He's only playing 24.0 minutes, but he's being productive in that time. The Jazz are better overall with Jae Crowder at the four spot, but Favors still carries borderline standard league value with his versatility.
Nov 14 - 11:59 PM

Donovan Mitchell scored 10 points (3-of-9 FG, 3-of-3 FT) with three rebounds, three assists, one block, and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

Mitchell only played 25 minutes because the Jazz got blown out in this one. Mitchell's efficiency continues to be an issue, preventing him from bringing back full value thus far. However, he's been nicked up and also missed time this offseason, so it should only be a matter of time before he gets into a groove. Now is a good time to buy-low.
Nov 14 - 11:53 PM

Rudy Gobert scored 10 points (4-of-6 FG, 2-of-6 FT) with 10 rebounds, two assists, and three steals in 26 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

The Jazz were blown off the floor, which is why Gobert only logged 26 minutes. He still managed to notch another double-double in limited time. His free throw shooting continues to bring him down, but everything else is still there.
Nov 14 - 11:48 PM

Raul Neto (hamstring) is being sent down to get in a few practices with the G-League team.

He hasn't played at all this season due to the hamstring injury, but it looks like he's on the cusp of a return. That said, he's just the third-string PG on the roster and is completely irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Nov 13 - 2:36 PM

Donovan Mitchell hit just 3-of-14 shots vs. Memphis on Monday, finishing with 12 points, four assists, one rebound and one steal in 36 minutes.

He's now shooting just 41.7% on the season, a big reason why he's ranked just outside the top-50 in standard 9-category leagues. Mitchell missed a big chunk of the offseason recovering from a foot injury and has taken a couple knocks here and there that sidelined him for two games, so it's going to take some more time for him to get into a rhythm.
Nov 13 - 12:43 AM
Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

Joe Ingles scored a team-high 19 points in Monday's 96-88 win over the Grizzlies.

He added six rebounds, five assists, one steal and three triples, his second impressive line in a row after matching his career-high of 27 points on Friday with seven assists, five rebounds, one steal, one block and five triples in 35 minutes. He suffered a cut above his left eye tonight and was able to keep playing after the training staff bandaged him up, but Kevin McHale had one of the quotes of the night when he said Ingles' wrap looked like a "civil war bandage." Joe Ingles is the man.
