Rudy Gobert feasted on Tuesday with 22 points (9-of-12 FGs), 18 rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks in 37 minutes as the Jazz beat the Nets 118-107 on the road.
Gobert isn't exactly living up to his ADP, but his stats are close enough to his career averages that there's not really anything to complain about other than a small dip in blocks. Donovan Mitchell had a nice line with 25 points, three 3-pointers, four assists and a steal in 36 minutes in the victory.

Donovan Mitchell (illness) will play against the Nets on Tuesday after missing Sunday's game against the Wizards.
Donovan has hit a little bit of a slump over the past two weeks with value outside of the top-100 in 9/8 cat leagues, but he is in a nice rebound spot against the Nets. It's a good idea to gauge the trade value of Mitchell's owner in your leagues while he is in a mini-slump.

Donovan Mitchell (illness) listed as probable for Tuesday.
Emmanuel Mudiay's minutes should take the biggest hit as Mitchell returns from a one-game absence. With Mike Conley still absent, Mitchell should continue to dominate in a variety of categories. He has averaged 24.2 points on 46.1 percent shooting from the field.

Donovan Mitchell (illness) will be held out of Sunday's game against the Wizards.
Mitchell timed his illness perfectly since the Jazz are going against the sorry Wizards on Sunday, and it looks like holding Mitchell out is a strategic choice by the Jazz and not something we should expect to linger. Mitchell put up a season-worst dud on Friday and you have to wonder whether illness played a part in it. As usual, there's not much streaming value in Utah when one of their stars sit, but you can expect Joe Ingles to take over all or most of the primary ballhandling duties while Emmanuel Mudiay and Jordan Clarkson each will get a significant minutes and usage bump.

Donovan Mitchell had one of his worst games of the season on Friday, scoring only four points (2-for-9 shooting) with four assists, two steals and a rebound.
Despite the horrible showing from Mitchell, the Jazz were able to take care of business against an over-matched Hornets team. This is nothing more than a blip on the radar for what's been a nice season for Mitchell so far.

Donovan Mitchell scored 19 points on 7-of-18 shooting to go with four rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers on Monday.
Mitchell's increased assist numbers seem to be a trend that's sticking as he initiates more action with the ball for his team. It would be a welcome addition to his stat set as he rounds out his game and explores his ceiling without Mike Conley. The number should definitely take a bit of dip when Conley returns though.

Donovan Mitchell dropped 32 points (14-of-21 from the floor) along with six assists and four 3-pointers vs. the Magic on Saturday.
Mitchell is inside the top-30 on the season and shouldn't fall far from there moving forward. He is averaging 6.7 assists since Mike Conley has been out. Mitchell's assists will take a hit when Conley returns but he won't lose much production in other categories as he is the number one option in Utah.

Rudy Gobert finished Thursday's road win with 17 points (8-for-11 FG), 12 rebounds and three blocks.
Gobert continues to get going in the right direction and took advantage of a nice matchup in this one. Donovan Mitchell also scored 17 points to go with four boards, seven assists and two 3-pointers, though he also shot 6-of-14 from the field. These two are the highest-value Jazz players in fantasyland and will remain as such.

Coach Quin Snyder reiterated that the Jazz defense has not prioritized creating turnovers and fastbreak opportunities, which has hurt Donovan Mitchell's steals and scoring opportunities especially.
The Jazz rank dead last in the league in total steals and 28th in the league in points off of the fastbreak. These two downturns have affected Mitchell in particular, since his steals are down to a career-low 1.2 per game on fewer deflections per game. In addition to the low steal rate, Mitchell's fastbreak opportunities are down nearly 20% this season, which means fewer easy buckets. Mitchell is still ranked in the top-35 range and his per-minute numbers in prior years point to a higher ceiling, but this is a reminder that the Jazz system, both on offense and on defense, has historically not been conducive to elite fantasy production. His upside is capped given these systemic restraints and the fact that he hasn't been able to crack 2nd-round value even with Mike Conley out, but Donovan Mitchell is as solid as it gets inside the top 40.

Donovan Mitchell scored 30 points on 13-of-23 shooting (including four threes) with seven rebounds, nine assists and one steal in the Jazz's 120-107 win over the Clippers on Saturday.
Mitchell has stayed healthy and though his top-40 value when on the floor is a bit disappointing, he's in the ballpark of where he needs to be to meet ADP.

Donovan Mitchell played some sweet music on Thursday, to the tune of 35 points, three rebounds, seven assists and three triples on 12-of-19 shooting.
Mitchell is as steady as they come and is now a bona fide bluechip asset in fantasy – a crazy thought considering he's just 23 years young.

Bojan Bogdanovic had a poor-shooting night on Monday in a loss to the Heat, going just 4-for-14 as part of a 19-point, four-rebound, three assist, two-trey performance in 29 minutes.
Bogdanovic did produce at the line, shooting 9-of-10 on his freebies in this one. He's having a great season and this is just part of his deep-shooting skillset that those that roster him have to deal with. Also with a poor shooting percentage tonight was Donovan Mitchell, who went 5-for-18 from the floor and 2-for-4 from the charity stripe, good for 13 points. Mitchell also added three boards, seven dimes, three steals and a triple in 39 minutes, so he made up for it quite well.

Donovan Mitchell filled up the stat sheet in a win over the Hornets on Saturday, going for 20 points on 7-of-19 shooting with four rebounds, nine dimes, one 3-pointer, one steal and one block.
Mitchell has established a bankable range of top-25 upside with a top-50 floor this season, making him one of the best Tier 2 guards in fantasy this season.

Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz to a 111-106 win over the Hawks on Thursday with 30 points (12-for-22 FG), five rebounds, five assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Mitchell's hot shooting from deep has reasonably cooled off, but he's still hitting a .359 clip from beyond the arc for the year. Tonight he didn't have it going, but was still able to find ways to score inside the paint. With the Jazz in a close battle, Mitchell was able to get to the cup almost at will, getting layups or free throws. He's trending up.

Bojan Bogdanovic (11-for-22 FG) and Donovan Mitchell (13-for-23 FG) both dropped 30 points in Tuesday's win over the Magic.
Bogdanovic started at power forward tonight but it didn't seem to affect him all that much. The sharpshooter added five rebounds, five assists, a steal and six threes while Mitchell chipped in three rebounds, four assists and two triples. Both are set-and-forget players with middle- and early-middle-round value, respectively.
