  • Emmanuel Mudiay
    PG, Utah Jazz

    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.

  • Royce O'Neale
    SF, 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.

  • Donovan Mitchell
    SG, 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.

  • Rudy Gobert
    C, 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.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Bojan Bogdanovic scored 15 points with eight rebounds, three assists, three triples and two steals in Friday's loss to the Pelicans.

    Bogdanovic, one of the fantasy darlings from last season, goes from being featured on a Pacers team missing Victor Oladipo to a role player on a deep and talented Jazz team. Lines like this one tonight likely represent the upside he has in that role, but don't expect him to lead the team in rebounds very often.

  • Jeff Green
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Jeff Green came off the bench in the Jazz loss to the Pelicans on Friday to score 20 points with two threes, one assist, one rebound, one steal and one block.

    Green will be a nice scoring piece off the bench for the Jazz this season whose fantasy value will depend on his efficiency and playing time. He can be looked at as a points streamer, especially if the Jazz deal with any injuries.

  • Royce O'Neale
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Royce O'Neale is starting at power forward on Friday, with Joe Ingles coming off the bench.

    This has been a rumored starting lineup ever since the Jazz signed Bojan Bogdanovic, and O'Neale is a pretty malleable fit as a low-maintenance offensive player who can guard multiple positions. This should set off alarm bells for deep-league managers, as O'Neale averaged 0.8 threes, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks in 20.4 mpg last season. Standard-league managers should also view this as a move that will push down Ingles' ADP — that's great for profit margin, as he's still going to play enough to deliver late-middle round value. Both are far more exciting fantasy options than Jeff Green, who is the other candidate to start at PF.

  • Juwan Morgan
    PF, Utah Jazz

    Juwan Morgan (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

    Morgan was questionable at first but he was ruled out shortly after. He'll likely spend most of his time this season with the Jazz's G-League affiliate, The Salt Lake City Stars, and can be left undrafted.

  • Dante Exum
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Dante Exum (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Exum and Emmanuel Mudiay are both out for Friday's matchup. They are currently competing for a bench role for this team but neither should be drafted in standard redraft leagues.

    Emmanuel Mudiay (left hamstring) will not play in Friday's preseason game vs. the Pelicans.

    Mudiay is in a competition with Dante Exum who was also ruled out from Friday's matchup. Nigel Williams-Goss and Justin Wright-Foreman should see some minutes in Friday's preseason matchup but neither factor into the fantasy landscape. Monitor Mudiay's status as training camp rolls on.

  • Donovan Mitchell
    SG, Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell led all Jazz starters in Wednesday's 99-133 loss to the Bucks and was able to produce 14 points (5-of-9 shooting), five rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes.

    Mitchell is coming off a stint at the FIBA World Cup, so there's no real reason to overwork the Jazz star. He's going to be the focal point of the team's offense but how he jells with new backcourt mate Mike Conley will be something to watch over the preseason.

  • Tony Bradley
    C, Utah Jazz

    With Rudy Gobert missing Wednesday's game for rest, Tony Bradley put up a good effort off the bench with 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting along with 10 rebounds.

    Bradley failed to block a shot in his 22 minutes on the floor, but the dub-dub was a welcome sight to behold coming from the second-year player. He's more of a dynasty stash while Gobert is healthy. That said, he did show up Ed Davis, who started and chipped in just two points and seven boards in 14 minutes on the night.
