Joe Ingles wasn't anything special in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors, posting five points, five rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer.
At least Ingles went 2-of-2 from the field? We'd like to see him be a bit more assertive on offense in 28 minutes, and it's another mediocre line in a disappointing season where Jingles is just a top-85/100 option in 8/9-cat leagues. It's going to be tough for him to get back to last season's rankings but we do expect Ingles to improve on his current marks after the All-Star break. He's still a buy-low option but keep your expectations in check.

Joe Ingles double-doubled on Wednesday with 15 points and a career-high 11 dimes in 34 minutes in a 116-88 win over the Suns.
He shot 6-of-10 from the field and added two 3-pointers, three rebounds and one steal to the stat sheet. Royce O'Neale added 15 points, four assists and two steals on 5-of-6 shooting in 27 minutes. O'Neale is not fantasy relevant, but Ingles remains a late-round guy this season.

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 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 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.

Joe Ingles cleaned up on the glass on Friday, recording a new career-high with 12 rebounds in 31 minutes.
He was going after that ball hard but the goodness didn't end there. Ingles recorded 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting with four dimes, one steal and two triples to round out his solid performance for the night. Ingles is a coveted trade target in fantasy leagues for his diverse stat line and the Jazz's fantasy playoff schedule, so if you want him it'll cost you.

Joe Ingles managed 16 points, two rebounds, seven assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers in Wednesday's home win over the Jazz.
This may end up as a random footnote more than anything, but Ingles is sporting some notable home-road splits this season. At home he's averaging 13.9 points, 1.9 steals and 2.8 threes on .415 from deep and .454 from the field while he's delivering 10.0 points, 1.4 steals and 1.5 threes on .322 from behind the arc and .426 from the field. If nothing else you can bench him in daily leagues when the Jazz are on the road, but Ingles still has the looks of a middle-round guy who's had some tough shooting luck so far.

Joe Ingles gave fantasy players another look at a buy-low window with a quiet game on Monday that featured two points (1-for-6 shooting), four rebounds, six assists, a steal and two blocks.
This one's the best type of buy-low line, as his poor scoring and shooting will often frustrate less experienced owners while the other numbers are there at their usual levels. Try and get Jingles on your rosters before he snaps back into form — he was alright on Friday but tonight was a clear step back.

Joe Ingles isn't totally out of his slump but is moving in the right direction after posting 12 points, nine rebounds, five assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on Friday.
Ingles hit 1-of-5 from behind the arc but that's an improvement over his last two games where he went a combined 0-for-8. The playmaking, rebounding and defense have been there, but Jinglin' Joe has struggled with his shot of late. He's down at 39.0 percent from the field over the last five and has been below 44.0 percent since the end of October. Ingles remains a buy-low option, as while he probably can't pull his efficiency all the way back up after two poor months, this is a player who was north of .450 in each of the past two seasons. Jingles is also shooting a remarkably poor .636 at the charity stripe (career .731 shooter), which takes all the shine off his career-high 1.6 steals per game. He'll get it sorted out in time.

Joe Ingles disappeared with two points on free throws, six rebounds, six assists and two steals in Tuesday's road loss to the Raptors.
Ingles missed all five of his field goal attempts and though the Raptors are stocked with capable defenders, this issue of road struggles isn't new for him. We can't see the trend being a permanent issue so it should end at some point, but it's something to be aware of when setting lineups.

Joe Ingles only posted six points, three assists and a steal in 21 minutes on Saturday.
The Jazz were up 71-34 at half, so it's actually a wonder that more players weren't quiet in the box score. Consider this a buy-low opportunity for Ingles, who should finish the year around the top-50. Donovan Mitchell was also mediocre tonight with 15 points on 6-of-14 from the field, but there's really not much to learn from this beatdown.

Joe Ingles scored 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds, eight assists and three steals over 33 minutes in Saturday's 107-106 home loss to the Thunder.
Ingles has been good at home and we just need to see him bounce back on the road now. He's a bit of a buy low player knowing that he's only going to get better as his injury prone teammates start to cede minutes and touches. Rudy Gobert also went for 20 & 10 in the loss.

Joe Ingles scored 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting (including four threes) with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in the Jazz's 108-103 win over the Warriors on Wednesday.
This is the Ingles that the Jazz need but for various reasons he is either reluctant or the Jazz don't do enough to feature him. He's a bit of a buy low player bringing back returns in the late-middle rounds.
December 15, 2018, 8:01 pmJoe Ingles - F - Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles only scored eight points on 2-of-11 shooting on Saturday but still paid the bills for fantasy owners with five rebounds, five assists, three steals, a block and two 3-pointers.
Ingles' stat set is just sublime, and the fact that he's not a super flashy player means that he's generally undervalued in fantasy despite finishing as an early-middle round player a year ago. He's been at 10 points or less in each of his last four games so there might be a nice buy-low opportunity here.
