Kelly Olynyk scored seven points on 2-of-5 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one three in 17 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Jazz.
The Jazz aren’t the greatest matchup but that’s fairly unimportant to Olynyk’s value. He’s bringing back top 100-125 value in 20 mpg this season and even if Hassan Whiteside stays healthy, it’s fairly likely that Olynyk continues to earn more minutes as he gets acclimated throughout the year. Since that’s enough on its face to hang on in standard leagues on its own, and Whiteside is still dealing with a bone bruise on his knee and is a durability risk, it’s fairly easy to call him a must-own player in 12-team leagues.
