Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio made 4-of-10 shots to finish Wednesday's home victory with 10 points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block. Rubio hit a 3-pointer tonight and for once his low playing time (24 minutes) can be contributed to a lopsided score, not simply coach Quin Snyder's rotations. Nobody on Utah's roster played more than 26 minutes tonight, so there's not a lot to glean from the results here -- Joe Ingles was solid with 12 points and five boards, Jonas Jerebko hit double-digits with 10 points in 22 minutes, and the Jazz picked up 51 points from their bench tonight.

Donovan Mitchell    G  Jazz

 

 

Donovan Mitchell was held to four points on 1-of-10 shooting on Wednesday, but he chipped in elsewhere with seven assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 26 minutes. It was the rookie's lowest-scoring game of the month and was encouraging that he didn't let the poor shooting impact other facets of his game. "When the shot is not falling, do something else — still contribute in different ways," Mitchell said. "I made it a point to [pass] first, and let the offense come to me." That mentality is great for fantasy purposes, and he's an early candidate for pickup of the year.

Alec Burks    G  Jazz

 

 

Alec Burks had 15 points, two rebounds, two steals and one assist in 25 minutes on Wednesday, making 5-of-10 field goals and 4-of-6 free throws. This was the most points Burks has scored since opening night, and he's yet to hit double-digits in consecutive games this season. Until that changes, he's a non-factor in fantasy leagues.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Utah rolled past the Bulls on Wednesday, 110-80, led by Derrick Favors' 23 points on 8-of-11 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block. Favors said afterward that he's trying to be more aggressive offensively, and it paid off nicely tonight with Utah's second win in their past five games -- including Utah's biggest margin of victory all season. The quality of the competition had a lot to do with the score, but Favors did look particularly good in pick-and-rolls tonight. He's paying off nicely for owners who grabbed him when Rudy Gobert (knee) went down.

Donovan Mitchell    SG  Jazz

 

 

Mitchell scored 17 points (6-19 FG, 1-7 3PT, 4-5 FT) to go along with four rebounds, five assists and one steal across 36 minutes in Monday's 106-87 loss to Philadelphia. Mitchell led a feeble Utah offense with 17 points on Monday. Shooting 31.5 percent from the floor, the rookie guard struggled with his shot in what turned out to be a high-volume shooting night. Mitchell has been entrusted with a sizable chunk of the offense, averaging 14.3 field goal attempts per game entering Monday. As a result, he is second on the team in scoring with 14.8 points per game.

Donovan Mitchell    G  Jazz

 

 

Donovan Mitchell hit 6-of-19 shots and 1-of-7 3-pointers for 17 points, four rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 37 minutes of Monday's ugly loss to the Sixers. He easily led the team in minutes tonight and while his shooting wasn't great, the numbers were just fine. Mitchell looks like he's going to be a must-start fantasy player for the entire season and it was nice to see him stuff the stat sheet on a night when his shot wasn't falling.

Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio hit 5-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, three steals, a block and six turnovers in 22 minutes of Monday's blowout loss to the Sixers. Rubio hasn't played well for most of this season, but finally looked better tonight. Hopefully his achilles injury is behind him and this will be the start of a hot streak for Rubio.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors hit 3-of-8 shots for nine points, seven rebounds and a block in Monday's 107-86 loss to the Sixers. Favors had to deal with The Process tonight and was a far cry from the guy who posted 25 points and 11 rebounds on 10-of-12 shooting on Saturday. Favors is still worth owning as long as Rudy Gobert is out, despite the inconsistency.

Jonas Jerebko    F  Jazz

 

 

Jonas Jerebko hit just 1-of-5 shots (a 3-pointer) for three points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 20 minutes of Monday's loss to the Sixers. Jerebko was dealing with an illness coming in and had a season-high 15 points, six boards, a steal and a 3-pointer on Saturday, but never got it going tonight. He's worth keeping an eye on with Rudy Gobert injured and makes for an interesting punt option in DFS, but he's not someone who should be rostered in most 12-team leagues.

Jonas Jerebko    PF  Jazz

 

 

Jerebko is dealing with an illness, but participated in the Jazz's morning shootaround and will play Monday against the 76ers, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Though it appears Jerebko will be at less-than-optimal health heading into the Jazz's three-game week, it doesn't look as though the illness will impact his availability. Jerebko turned in his best outing of the campaign in the Jazz's blowout win over the Magic on Saturday, supplying a season-high 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes.
