  1. in my 14 team auction league, I got him for $5 and a steal compare to rest of the class because his numbers weren't jumping out in pre season.  He definitely settled in after facing Drummond and Deandre Jordan first 2 games.  His coming out was against Denver, that drive and reverse finish on Plumlee show me he's going to be special.


    Ayton went for $28, pre-season #s

    Bagley went for $10, hype

    Doncic went for $13 to me, I like rookies

    Jackson Jr went for $8, blks sell

    Trae went for $3, great deal

    Bamba for $9, blks sell

    Sexton for $7, hype

    Knox for $5, good pre-season

    All good points, but he's the kind of player that will get better and better as the year goes on. I can guarantee his second half stats will be much better than his first half stats. The jazz love him and need him to evolve into a big time player for them. 

    So personally, I'd rather hang on to him and ride out the early season instability for the second half payoff versus picking up some random middling player with zero upside.


    Im with you here. He is going to be special.

    Joe Johnson injury allows this kid to explode? Thoughts? Pick up regardless? 


    I have him on my 14 GM league, he's not helping in % but I really like his upside and his aggression.  I believe he's got the highest usage among rookies more than 20 mins (read in roto).  I had a chance to use my waiver to pick up J. Murray and dropping Donovan but I want to see where this kid will grow into., we already know what Murray is.  Mitchell reminds me of Kobe with his extreme confidence in FGAs.  Shooting stroke looks fine, just a matter of time till the game slows down enough. For a rookie to average 11 fga in 22 minutes is green light for success.  Given same minutes shooting at 43%, he can creep to 12ppg level with 1.1 st and .6 blk.  He will only have more minutes with JJ out.
