  • Jae Crowder - F - Utah Jazz

    Jae Crowder put up 23 points on 8-of-15 shooting with five threes and three defensive stats in a big win over the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Crowder is going to have his ups and downs, but he is ultimately their sixth man and will need to play well for them to make it to the playoffs. He is currently outside the top-150 value right now and is merely a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.

  • Rudy Gobert - C - Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert put up a monster game on Wednesday as he had 23 points with 22 rebounds and four blocks in a 129-109 win over the Clippers.

    He shot 7-of-10 form the field and went 9-of-10 from the line. The Jazz are on fire and it is due in large part to the stellar play of Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell. Both guys are top-20 over the past two weeks and Gobert is actually top-20 for the entire season.

  • Donovan Mitchell - G - Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell put up 28 points on 10-of-22 shooting with six assists and three steals in a win over the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Mitchell had a shaky start to the season, but he still holds top-70 value and is steadily rising as he is inside the top-20 over the past two weeks. He has the potential to be an early-round guy, so fantasy owners should could only hope that this hot streak lasts for the rest of the season.

  • Dante Exum - G - Utah Jazz

    Dante Exum (left ankle sprain) will be reevaluated in two weeks.

    The Jazz have an injury bug with Ricky Rubio (hamstring), Raul Neto (groin), and Thabo Sefolosha (hamstring) all to be reevaluated in one week. Exum's injury appears more serious, so he is likely to be out longer than all of these guards. He can be dropped in standard leagues.

  • Thabo Sefolosha - F - Utah Jazz

    Thabo Sefolosha (mild right hamstring strain) will be reevaluated in one week.

    Sefolosha is on the long list of Jazz players to be reevaluated in a week, which keeps in like with his original timeline of 10-to-12 days. He wasn't getting much run when healthy, so he shouldn't be owned in most formats.

  • Ricky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz

    Ricky Rubio (mild right hamstring strain) will be reevaluated in one week.

    The Jazz are extremely thin at guard, which means Donovan Mitchell will have to pick up the slack in an even higher volume. The fact the Jazz are listing his hamstring injury as mild is a positive sign, which means he should be held in all formats.

  • Donovan Mitchell - G - Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz in their 100-94 win over the Pistons on Monday with 28 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and three triples.

    Mitchell is finally starting to hit the deep ball as he went 3-for-7 from beyond the arc and 9-for-21 from the field. He also went 7-for-9 from the line and hit a clutch and-one layup late in the fourth quarter to help push the Jazz past the Pistons. Spida is starting to figure things out just in time for the Jazz to make a strong push for the playoffs. He's finally paying owners back with top-20 value over the past two weeks.

  • Rudy Gobert - C - Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert tied a career-high with 25 rebounds to go with 18 points, three assists and two blocks in Monday's win against the Pistons.

    Gobert absolutely dominated his matchup against Andre Drummond and gobbled up almost every rebound for the Jazz. The team is surging and it's largely because of Gobert's presence in the paint on both ends of the floor.

  • Joe Ingles - F - Utah Jazz

    Joe Ingles scored 13 points on 3-of-10 shooting with two triples, four rebounds and eight assists on Monday.

    Ingles drilled a 3-pointer with 24 seconds left to put the game away for the Jazz and it looks like the ankle issue is a thing of the past. The defensive numbers have been a bit low for our liking, but he's been providing across the board elsewhere to make up for it.

  • Joe Ingles - F - Utah Jazz

    Joe Ingles suffered an ankle sprain towards the end of the first half in Monday's game vs. the Pistons and headed to the locker room but is available to return.

    Sometimes, some good old training staff TLC can get players back up and going. Ingles had a good game on Friday with a fresh career-high in rebounds (12), so it would be good to see him build on that performance tonight if possible with at least a well-rounded performance.

  • Joe Ingles - F - Utah Jazz

    Joe Ingles intentionally committed a foul so that he could leave Monday's game to head to the locker room.

    He committed the foul a minute before the halftime break so he was clearly bothered. Check back with us regarding his availability to return for the second half.

  • Donovan Mitchell - G - Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell scored 34 points on 11-of-24 shooting (4-of-13 3PTs, 8-of-10 FTs) with six rebounds, six assists and two blocks over 38 minutes in the Jazz's 110-102 win over the Bulls on Saturday.

    We've been needling owners to buy low while the market is still soft and in this case folks might still wonder if the recent boost is linked to the absence of point guards. Even if they do return and cut into his value, having this prolonged hot stretch is nourishing for both Mitchell and his fantasy GMs. He's sitting on top 60-70 value (8/9 cat) on the year now and top-30 numbers over the last two weeks.

  • Rudy Gobert - C - Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert scored 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting (5-of-9 FTs) with 16 rebounds, eight assists, one steal, two blocks and five turnovers in Saturday's win over the Bulls.

    Gobert got into the passing game more with the Jazz down their point guards, and he continues to chug along at a top 20-30 pace (9/8 cat) this season. Joe Ingles added 16 points, four assists and four treys in the win, as well.

  • Royce O'Neale - F - Utah Jazz

    Royce O'Neale started and scored eight points on 3-of-8 shooting with a career-high 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and two treys over 37 minutes on Saturday against the Bulls.

    O'Neale has shown value in the past when called upon to be a de facto point guard replacement. The Jazz might find that life with this configuration is pretty good, but when the point guards return it's going to seriously complicate whatever value O'Neale can amass in the short-term. Stream him in normal sized leagues and maybe something can stick.

  • Jae Crowder - F - Utah Jazz

    Jae Crowder hit just 1-of-13 shots in Saturday's win over the Bulls, scoring six points with three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 25 minutes off the bench.

    Crowder went 1-of-7 from deep and with the iffy shot selection you're going to see him hit in waves, but the long-term result will always be something straddling the top-150.
