February 22, 2020, 11:45 pmDonovan MitchellSG, Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell hit 12-of-24 shots from the field and 6-of-7 at the line for 31 points, seven rebounds, one 3-pointer and three assists in a loss to the Rockets on Saturday.
Mitchell has been a top-50 play on the season, but if he's going to carry the Jazz on his shoulders moving forward, his needle should be headed in the right direction as the season winds to a close.
February 22, 2020, 11:42 pmMike ConleyPG, Utah Jazz
Mike Conley returned from a three-game absence on Saturday and got a full complement of minutes (34), allowing him to post 13 points on 5-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer.
Conley's minutes are a sign that he's got the trainers' full confidence to go full blast. He got an extra rest day (Friday) to recover from an illness, which now is clearly behind him. He did struggle with his shot tonight, but Conley should put up better lines than this moving forward.
February 22, 2020, 1:47 amRoyce O'NealeSF, Utah Jazz
Royce O'Neale played 25 minutes on Friday, putting up nine points, eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks.
He only made three shots tonight (3-of-8 FG) and was a paltry 1-for-5 from deep, although he is averaging 1.2 threes per game this year. His contributions across the stat sheet have kept him fantasy-relevant in nearly all formats this season. O'Neale's rank has sat around the top-150 and he should definitely be used in 14-team leagues.
February 22, 2020, 1:16 amRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert posted a double-double in Friday's 113-104 loss to the Spurs, adding a block and two assists in 37 minutes of action.
Gobert was efficient from the floor, going 7-for-8 on the night, but was only 4-for-7 from the free-throw line. Gobert's swat extended his streak of consecutive games with at least one block to eight. He's averaging almost two blocks per game on the season, sitting at 1.9 BPG, and that alone is worthy of fantasy ownership. Nothing new here, keep using the first-time All-Star as you normally would.
February 22, 2020, 1:10 amJordan ClarksonPG, Utah Jazz
Jordan Clarkson played 34 minutes on Friday, putting up 15 points and 3 assists. He went 5-of-12 from the floor and 2-for-7 from beyond the arc.
This was an unusually high amount of minutes for Clarkson, as Rudy Gobert was the only player on the Jazz who played more. Mike Conley was out for this contest, so that certainly helped, but Clarkson has kept his value right around the 100 mark and needs to be owned everywhere right now. He's averaging 16.2 PTS and 2.3 threes over the last two months and has been especially effective over the last two weeks.
February 22, 2020, 12:58 amEmmanuel MudiayPG, Utah Jazz
Emmanuel Mudiay played a very efficient 18 minutes on Friday vs. the Spurs, posting a team-high 18 points (6-of-10 FG), five rebounds and three assists.
Mudiay was surprisingly good on Friday even though almost every other guard for the Jazz played more minutes than he did. He is an option in deeper leagues and is worth monitoring due to his upside.
February 20, 2020, 5:55 pmMike ConleyPG, Utah Jazz
Mike Conley (rest) will not play on Friday.
A rest game coming out of the All-Star break is a funny look, but the Jazz go back-to-back and play Houston on Saturday, which is far more meaningful than tomorrow's tilt with the Spurs. Expect extra touches to funnel to Joe Ingles in that one.

Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz to a 116-101 win over the Heat on Wednesday with 26 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and four triples.
Mitchell had a bit of an empty line last game, but this was more in line of what we're used to from him. The 3-point shot was falling tonight, but it's good to see the dimes and swipes rolling in.
February 13, 2020, 12:10 amRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert dominated the Heat on Wednesday with 16 points and 20 boards while adding an assist and two blocks.
Gobert went 7-for-12 from the floor and made both of his free throw attempts to put some icing on the cake. He's rolling right now and logged 37 minutes which is a sign of good things to come.
February 13, 2020, 12:09 amJordan ClarksonPG, Utah Jazz
Jordan Clarkson kept up his hot streak on Wednesday with 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting to go with four rebounds, three assists, a steal and four triples.
That's the third consecutive game of at least 20 points for Clarkson and this is easily the best stretch of the season for him. The Jazz love his scoring punch off the bench and this just screams sell-high for a player you can get in the top-75. His value is as high as it will ever be and the .625 shooting from the floor just doesn't seem sustainable.
February 13, 2020, 12:05 amJoe InglesSF, Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles kept up his dime-dishing on Wednesday with nine assists to go with his four points, two boards and one steal.
The game-high assists are nice and Ingles has shown the ability to be a solid assists streamer, but the lack of triples and defensive numbers make him a hard hold. He went 1-for-9 from the floor and missed all five of his 3-point attempts and this is all without Mike Conley. Don't be afraid to cut bait as Jordan Clarkson is hot and Conley should be back soon.
February 13, 2020, 12:04 amBojan BogdanovicSF, Utah Jazz
Bojan Bogdanovic had another night at the office on Wednesday with 22 points, seven rebounds, four dimes and three triples.
It's the usual with Bogdanovic, who has been money from deep and a guarantee for some deep balls each game.
February 12, 2020, 7:25 pmEd DavisPF, Utah Jazz
Ed Davis will sit out of Wednesday's game vs. the Heat as he continues to nurse a sprained left ankle.
Davis has averaged a career-low 10.7 minutes across 25 games this season and has not produced fantasy value in those opportunities. He can be ignored from a fantasy perspective.

Mike Conley (illness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Heat.
Conley will miss his second consecutive game on Wednesday. Joe Ingles will see a significant boost as a playmaker while Jordan Clarkson will likely see more minutes off the bench.

Ed Davis (left ankle sprain) is doubtful to play during Wednesday's game.
Davis was already dealing with back spasms, but those weren't expected to keep him out until this news hit. He is not especially relevant in fantasy.
