Injuries have dampened the once-promising rookie's career. He is not on the fantasy radar.

The Jazz announced that they have agreed to terms with Kyle Collinsworth, while in a corresponding move, they have waived Trevon Blueitt.
Collinsworth’s deal with the Jazz comes a day after the team’s G League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars, acquired him from Raptors 905, the affiliate of the Raptors. Last year, in 28 games in the G League, he averaged 10.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.8 steals in 31.1 minutes per game, while shooting 44.9 percent from the field. He isn’t expected to make the final roster but he should stick with the Salt Lake City Stars for the foreseeable future.

Rudy Gobert scored 17 points on 5-of-6 shooting with six rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in Monday's 115-128 loss to the Kings.
Gobert remains doing Gobert things and the only real worry for fantasy owners is seeing the blocks decline. There are plenty of promising young bigs headed into the next season which means Gobert's value is a bit less than it once was.
October 14, 2019, 11:42 pmJoe InglesSF, Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles scored 12 points with a game-high eight assists to go with a steal and two triples in Monday's loss to the Kings.
He went 3-for-6 from the field and hit all four of his free throws. Ingles looks like he'll be the sixth man for the Jazz which dampens his value a bit, but the contributions across the board mean he's still a standard-league value. The assists from Jingles are overlooked and when you pair it with the triples and steals you have a high-floor player that can fit in fantasy roster.
October 14, 2019, 11:42 pmDonovan MitchellSG, Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell scored 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting with a 3-pointer, five boards and two dimes on Monday against the Kings.
Mitchell is still learning how to play alongside Mike Conley (six points, two rebounds and six assists) but it's Conley that's taking a backseat and learning how to adjust. Spida will get his shots and usage and the shot from outside is still suspect, but the counting numbers should be there as usual.
October 14, 2019, 9:56 pmJoe InglesSF, Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles is likely to remain in the sixth-man role into the regular season and says he's excited about the challenge.
Ingles mentions that he's not bothered by the change. He should continue to get approximately the same amount of minutes and possibly more usage as he helps run both the first and second unit. Take this opportunity to buy low on him.

Emmanuel Mudiay has recovered from left hamstring soreness and is available on Monday against the Kings.
Mudiay is expected to back up Mike Conley at point guard for the Jazz. He enjoyed something of a renaissance last season with the Knicks but will be hard pressed to duplicate his averages of 14.8 points and 3.9 assists.

Juwan Morgan, who was dealing with a left ankle sprain, is available for Monday's game.
Morgan is probably headed to the G League this season. However, the rookie forward will have a chance to participate against the Kings.

Juwan Morgan (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Monday's preseason game.
Morgan missed Friday's game but his absence doesn't change the fantasy landscape. He's likely headed to the Salt Lake City Stars this year.

Emmanuel Mudiay (left hamstring soreness) is questionable for Monday's game after going through practice on Sunday.
Mudiay has missed the last two preseason games but should be able to win the backup point guard job anyway given Dante Exum's own injury troubles. He's a handcuff for Mike Conley but won't have standalone fantasy value.

Dante Exum (patellar tendon rehab) is still not ready to roll and will miss the Jazz's preseason game vs. the Kings on Monday.
Exum has been plagued with injuries his whole career, making him hard to trust in fantasy, even in the deepest of leagues.

Emmanuel Mudiay (left hamstring soreness) went through Sunday's practice.
Mudiay is competing for the backup point guard spot this season and a clean bill of health would certainly help him in that battle. He's off the radar in most formats but is probably the Mike Conley handcuff of choice.

October 12, 2019, 1:41 amRoyce O'NealeSF, Utah Jazz
Royce O'Neale started at power forward for the Jazz on Friday and looked good as he put up 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, three dimes, one assist, one steal, one block and four triples.
O'Neale has been a sneaky deep-league guy in spots over his career. The new-look Jazz has opened up some room for him to grow and strut his stuff. It's worth following if he can hang onto that starting PF job come regular season tip-off.
October 11, 2019, 11:28 pmDonovan MitchellSG, Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell scored 10 points with seven assists, three rebounds and two threes on Friday.
Mitchell didn't have his best day but the assists were nice. It can be assumed he's still learning how to play with Mike Conley, but one thing that has to increase this year for Mitchell to take the next step will be his free-throw rate. Tonight he had no attempts from the charity stripe.
October 11, 2019, 11:23 pmRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert scored 15 points (5-for-5 shooting) with three rebounds and two blocks as the Jazz fell to the Pelicans on Friday.
Gobert also went 5-for-7 from the free-throw line in this one as he eases himself into action following a summer at the FIBA World Cup. Gobert's already fantastic efficiency could see a slight uptick this season with the addition of playmakers like Mike Conley who had 13 points and seven assists on Friday.
