December 12, 2018, 11:57 pmDonovan Mitchell - G - Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell scored 21 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples in Wednesday's 111-84 win over the Heat.
There's very little to take away from this game — Utah was up by 25 after one, 27 at the half and 39 after three quarters. Rudy Gobert had 10 & 11 with two steals and two blocks while Ricky Rubio went for 5-6-6 with a steal in this easy win.
December 12, 2018, 11:55 pmDerrick Favors - F/C - Utah Jazz
Derrick Favors posted 17 points and eight rebounds in only 19 minutes on Wednesday night as the Heat offered up little resistance in Utah's blowout win.
Favors went 7-of-8 from the field and also added a block. He came off the bench tonight but vastly outplayed Jae Crowder (nine points on three triples in 20 minutes), though it's not like anyone had to hit the gas for the Jazz to pull away from the road-weary Heat. Favors is a decent low-end big man to have for the traditional stats.
December 12, 2018, 11:52 pmDante Exum - G - Utah Jazz
Dante Exum had a solid night at the office on Wednesday, scoring 14 points to go with three assists and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Heat.
Exum was quite good aside from five turnovers, even if the line isn't eye-popping. He's settled in as Utah's backup point guard and his natural length and athleticism make him a nice secondary weapon, particularly on the defensive end. If only it would result in fantasy value.
December 12, 2018, 11:50 pmKyle Korver - G/F - Utah Jazz
Kyle Korver scored 16 points in 16 minutes in Wednesday's easy win over the Heat, going 6-of-9 from the field and 4-of-5 from deep.
Utah got to spread the wealth tonight and Korver was able to get in on the fun. He's just a 3-point specialist for deep formats.
December 12, 2018, 8:33 pmJae Crowder - F - Utah Jazz
Jae Crowder will start at power forward on Wednesday night.
Derrick Favors heads to the bench against the rangy Heat. He and Crowder have been switching off starting duties all season and both make sense in 12-team leagues depending on what you're looking for. Crowder's a good 9-cat options for threes and steals while Favors is a decent option for the traditional big man stats.

Raul Neto (right thigh soreness) is questionable for Wednesday's game.
Neto was originally listed as available, but now has a chance of missing this game. There isn't much impact for fantasy leagues.

December 10, 2018, 10:40 pmRudy Gobert - C - Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert double-doubled against the Thunder on Monday with 13 points and 14 rebounds to go with two assists.
He went 5-for-8 from the field and the lack of blocks these past two games has been disappointing, but he should stat swatting shots soon enough.
December 10, 2018, 10:38 pmRicky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz
Ricky Rubio scored 10 points on 5-of-13 shooting with two rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block on Monday.
Rubio only logged 23 minutes, but the entire starting lineup for the Jazz struggled mightily tonight against the Thunder. No one had a positive plus-minus, but the Jazz bench unit was thriving tonight which is why the minutes were so low.
December 10, 2018, 10:37 pmDonovan Mitchell - G - Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell scored 19 points on 6-of-15 shooting with three 3-pointers, four rebounds and a steal on Monday.
Mitchell wasn't able to score the ball as well as he did Sunday against the Spurs, mainly because the Thunder are one of the best defensive teams in basketball. The Don has yet to really string together some efficient scoring games, but he's still getting comfortable as the Jazz have gotten off to a bit of a slow start.
December 10, 2018, 10:35 pmJoe Ingles - F - Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles didn't shoot well on Monday, scoring six points on 3-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, five assists and two steals.
Ingles was a bit passive on offense as he ceded shots to Donovan Mitchell and Ricky Rubio, but he was still able to hand out five dimes and gather defensive stats to salvage his night. Normally a sniper from deep, Ingles went 0-for-2 tonight which means he'll knock down a couple the next game.
December 10, 2018, 10:34 pmDerrick Favors - F/C - Utah Jazz
Derrick Favors scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting to go with three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block on Monday.
Favors started tonight and logged 28 minutes compared to Jae Crowder's 20 minutes off the bench (13 points, 5-of-9 shooting with two triples and six rebounds). Both players are fringe guys who don't hold much long term value.
December 9, 2018, 9:32 pmDerrick Favors - F/C - Utah Jazz
Derrick Favors started again on Sunday and put up two points on 1-of-2 shooting with eight rebounds and four defensive stats (two steals and two blocks) in a loss to the Spurs.
Jae Crowder, who was starting over Favors for a few games, did not impress either with only two points, three rebounds and two assists on 1-of-6 shooting. Despite averaging 5.6 fewer minutes per game than Crowder, Favors has managed top-90 value as opposed to Crowder’s top-140. Both are must-owns due to the shifting lineups and steady volume, but Favors is currently the preferred option over Crowder.
December 9, 2018, 9:27 pmDonovan Mitchell - G - Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell was able to put up 27 points with five rebounds on 8-of-21 shooting in a loss to the Spurs on Sunday.
He added three defensive stats with two steals and one block to the stat sheet as well. He is having a very similar season to last season stats-wise and is just outside top-60 value as opposed to last year’s top-55 finish. It does not look like he has taken a step forward from last season and it is now clear what you should expect from Mitchell each year. He will be a bit disappointing for owners who spent an early-round pick on him.
December 9, 2018, 9:22 pmRicky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz
Ricky Rubio managed to score 26 points with three rebounds and two assists on 11-of-23 shooting as the Jazz lost to the Spurs on Sunday.
He only turned the ball over once and added three 3-pointers to the box score. Rubio has been trending up as of late, but he will still have to make up a lot of ground to return to his top-80 value from last season as he currently sits at top-120. He will have solid late-round value regardless of whether he can return to last season's value, and he is still considered a buy-low option due to his and the team's slow start to the season.
