    Fun Facts for the season

    -The transition to the Jazz did not bode well for Mike Conley in his first season with a new team. Outside of an injury-riddled 2017-18 campaign that limited him to 12 games, Conley had his worst fantasy season since his rookie campaign as he saw most of his stats fall well below his career marks: -3.8 minutes, -1.0 points, +0.2 rebounds, -1.4 assists, -0.6 steals, -.034 field goal percentage, -.023 free throw shooting. There were not many players who disappointed as greatly as Conley did this season as he finished with 14th/16th round per game value after having an ADP in the 5th round (according to Yahoo!).

    -Although Conley disappointed in his first year with the Jazz, he also negatively affected the value of Joe Ingles. Ingles enjoyed two seasons inside the top-100 in 8/9-cat leagues prior to 2019-20, when he finished outside the top-120. When Conley was sidelined with a hamstring injury in December, Joe Ingles saw his value surge as he returned 4th/4th round per game value during a 20-game stretch.

    -Donovan Mitchell has been extremely consistent in his first three seasons in the league and his fantasy value reflects that as he has never finished higher than the 42nd ranked player in per-game value and no lower than the 56th ranked player in per-game value (8/9-cat formats).

    -Despite leading their team in fantasy value for the last three seasons, both Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell underperformed their ADP (according to Yahoo!) by about a round and a half of value.

    -In addition to Mike Conley, the Jazz also brought in Bojan Bogdanović in the offseason and he continued to show how he can help fantasy rosters as an extremely durable (Bogdanović has played in 492 of 505 regular and postseason games: 97%) and efficient scorer who doesn’t contribute much else on the stat sheet. Despite averaging 20.2 points on .447 from the field and .903 from the free throw line, Bojan was on pace to finish with 7th/8th round per game value due to his inability to get defensive stats (0.6 combined steals and blocks) and his poor rebounding and assist numbers (4.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists).

    -Tony Bradley is someone to keep an eye on as he has excelled in an extremely limited sample size. In two starts (the team was without Gobert), Bradley averaged 11 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and two blocks on .833 shooting in 22.6 mpg. Although he will likely continue to be buried on the bench in Utah, Bradley is a name to add to watch lists in case he finds himself a larger opportunity.
