Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood thrived off the bench against the Magic on Saturday, scoring 31 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and seven 3-pointers in just 26 minutes. He has the greenest of lights off the bench and came into this game with 18.0 points and 3.4 treys in his previous five games in the second unit. There are not many reliable offensive weapons off the bench, so he'll have every opportunity to score 20 per game like the Jazz were hoping for. He'll need to stay healthy, but things are looking up after a letdown in 2016-17.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors made 10-of-12 from the field and all five free throws for a season-high 25 points with 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 25 minutes against the Magic on Saturday. Besides the awesome stat line, this was probably the best Favors has looked all year. He was battling for position down low and he is establishing a nice rapport with Donovan Mitchell -- the guard threw one off the glass to feed Favors for a dunk. He is easily a beneficiary from the Rudy Gobert (knee) and things are looking up now that he looks spry again. He could be a sell-high player, but there's a good chance Favors cruises in the next month.

Donovan Mitchell    G  Jazz

 

 

Donovan Mitchell scored 12 points with six rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Magic on Saturday. He's really starting to look like a point guard and his ability to hit open shooters really showed up in both games. He's coming off a career-high eight dimes and he handled the ball a lot more even with Ricky Rubio next to him. Mitchell has likely secured a role around 30 minutes no matter who is active and he's on a heater over his last five, averaging 19.2 points, 4.8 boards, 4.2 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.2 treys on 47.4 percent from the field and 91.7 percent from the line in that span. He's one of the best rookies in fantasy and that should continue all season.

Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio scored nine points with six rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 16 minutes against the Magic on Saturday. He was expected to play 25 minutes, but he didn't need to because the Jazz won this by 40. For what it's worth, Rubio did look like he was moving around better, but he did miss some wide open shots. The bad news is Donovan Mitchell is handling the ball a lot more than expected, so that may explain the decline in dimes. Achilles issues can linger for a while, so hopefully the game off can get Rubio back on track. He does make some sense as a buy-low player, but only if it's at a heavy discount.

Jonas Jerebko    F  Jazz

 

 

Jonas Jerebko scored a season-high 15 points with six rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Magic on Saturday. He's been a sneaky beneficiary from the Rudy Gobert (knee) injury. In those five games, Jerebko averaged 8.8 points, 3.6 boards, 1.6 treys and 0.6 steals. He can probably flirt with this output for the next couple weeks, so give him a look this appeals to you.

Thabo Sefolosha    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Thabo Sefolosha scored eight points against the Magic on Saturday after a one-game absence, adding four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes. He is probably going to wind up starting in some games, but the odds of that may have gone down given the 40-point win today. Sefolosha is a steals specialist in deeper leagues.

Raul Neto    G  Jazz

 

 

Raul Neto scored nine points with two rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 24 minutes against the Magic on Saturday. He did some damage in garbage time and he had a ridiculous +44 in this 40-point win. Among players this century with 24 or fewer minutes, only Wally Szczerbiak had a better plus/minus with +50 in 2001. Crazy stat aside, Neto is going to lose run now that Ricky Rubio is back. Not a bad weekend with his career-high 22 on Friday, though.

Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Jonas Jerebko and Derrick Favors will start against the Magic on Saturday. That means Rodney Hood moves back to the bench just like he was before Rubio missed Friday. Hood is still taking a ton of shots off the bench and he'll probably close this game out if the game is close. The production is there and he likely just needs to stay healthy.

Thabo Sefolosha    SF  Jazz

 

 

Sefolosha (knee) is available for Saturday's tilt against the Magic. Sefolosha was questionable for the contest after missing Friday's loss to the Nets. The veteran should resume his role off the bench, where he has been averaging 7.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 0.9 blocks in over 21 minutes a contest through 15 games this season.

Thabo Sefolosha    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Thabo Sefolosha (knee) will be available for Saturday against the Magic. We still don't know the starting lineup or if Sefolosha will be limited after missing Friday. Jonas Jerebko is likely going to lose minutes.
