Alec Burks    G  Jazz

 

 

Alec Burks was dominant in a 116-69 win over the Wizards on Monday, scoring 27 points on 9-of-13 shots and 6-of-6 free throws. Rodney Hood (ankle) was out again, and Burks did all of his damage in just 28 minutes due to the lopsided score. He added five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three triples, and he's officially one of the hottest SGs in the West with averages of 22.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.6 triples in his previous three games. He looks like a strong pickup with the Jazz banged up and has three more games on the schedule this week.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert looked great in his return to action in Monday's 116-69 win vs. the Wizards, scoring four points on 2-of-4 shooting with 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks. The Jazz won by 47 points, so they were able to ease him back into action with 21 minutes. Gobert beat his projected 4-6 week timetable and looked great, and he joked after the game that he's not human when asked how he healed so quickly. Since he didn't play much, hopefully that means he will play on Tuesday vs. the Thunder on the second night of a back-to-back set.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert (knee) is in the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Wizards. Coach Quin Snyder said on Monday morning that Gobert will have minute restrictions, but he didn't give us a number. Season-long owners can throw him into their lineups, but DFS owners should look elsewhere until he's 100 percent. Derrick Favors will shift over to PF and could see some backup center minutes according to Snyder, so that would definitely help him sustain most of his value. Jonas Jerebko will head back to the bench and can be dropped in most leagues.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Gobert will start Monday's game against the Wizards, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. After missing 11 games with a bone bruise, Gobert will immediately reclaim his spot in the starting five, meaning Derrick Favors will shift back down to power forward. Gobert is expected to face some sort of minutes restriction, however, making him a fairly risky play in daily contests.

Rudy Gobert (knee) will have minute restrictions on Monday vs. the Wizards. Coach Quin Snyder didn't give a number, so DFS owners should tread carefully. "Without going into too much detail, you can get it from the floor today," Snyder said. "[The limit] isn't hard, fast [but] we want to honor those things because they're well thought-out." The Jazz also play on Tuesday vs. the Thunder, but it's unclear if they will let him play in that game as well. If we hear anything else regarding restrictions prior to tip-off, we'll provide another update.

Raul Neto    PG  Jazz

 

 

Neto (hamstring) has been cleared to play in Monday's matchup with the Wizards, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Neto has been sidelined for two consecutive contests with a sore hamstring, but will return to the lineup Monday and should slot in as depth in the backcourt. That said, with Donovan Mitchell ahead of him on the depth chart and Alec Burks' recent surge off the bench as well, Neto will likely only see a handful of minutes, which should keep him off the fantasy radar in the majority of fantasy leagues.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Gobert (knee) will play in Monday's game against the Wizards, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. After taking part in a light practice Sunday without any lingering issues, Gobert will make his return to the lineup from the bone bruise in his right knee, which is much earlier than expected. Considering the lengthy absence, however, the Jazz are going to be as cautious as possible with their big man and according to Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune, Gobert will be on a minutes restriction. An exact limit hasn't been provided, though fantasy owners may want to wait to activate him until Gobert is back on a full workload. With Gobert back, the likes of Derrick Favors, Jonas Jerebko and Thabo Sefolosha all take a hit to their fantasy value.

Rodney Hood    SG  Jazz

 

 

Hood (ankle) will not play Monday against the Wizards. Hood carried a questionable designation into Monday, but the team has since ruled him out for a fourth consecutive game due to a sore left ankle. Expect Donovan Mitchell and Alec Burks to continue to pick up increased minutes in his place. Hood's next chance to return will come Tuesday, as the Jazz travel to Oklahoma City on the the second night of a home/road back-to-back.

Raul Neto    G  Jazz

 

 

Raul Neto (hamstring) is available for Monday's game vs. the Wizards. He has missed two games in a row, but he was able to get in a limited practice on Sunday. Neto might see minutes in the teens behind Ricky Rubio if coach Quin Snyder calls his name, but he's not close to being on the fantasy radar.

Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood (left ankle soreness) will not play on Monday vs. the Wizards. Hood still isn't able to practice and this will be his fourth game in a row on the shelf. The Jazz have four games this week, so Alec Burks is an appealing streaming option with 22.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.6 triples over his last three games.
