2018 Fantasy Outlook
Drafted with the 13th overall pick in the 2017 Draft, Mitchell was expected to hold a relatively small rotational role on the Jazz during his rookie year. However, the Louisville product came out of the gates hot, scoring 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting during his sixth NBA game, being inserted into the starting five just six games later. He never looked back from there, filling the void created by Gordon Hayward’s departure. A favorite among some to win Rookie of the Year, Mitchell was able to lead Utah to the playoffs on the back of an especially strong post-All-Star break stint. During his final 24 appearances, Mitchell averaged 22.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.6 steals. Throughout the year, Mitchell was also able to put together five 30-point games, two 40-point games, 25 games with at least five assists and 13 performances with three or more steals. Considering Mitchell posted a 29.1 percent usage rate during his rookie campaign, it may be difficult for him to improve on his overall volume heading into 2018-19. However, there remains room for him to improve as a shooter, as he shot a fair, but not great, 43.7 percent from the field and 34.0 percent from beyond the arc. And, considering how much he handles the ball for the Jazz, he may be looking to improve as a passer. Regardless, Mitchell already has the makings of an up-and-coming star in the NBA.

Another prolific line

Mitchell netted 28 points (10-22 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 8-8 FT), six assists, two rebounds and three steals across 35 minutes in the Jazz's 129-109 win over the Clippers on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Mitchell may have come up empty from distance, but a 10-for-17 showing from in front of the arc combined with a perfect performance from the charity stripe helped him to a second straight 28-point tally. It was also Mitchell's seventh straight haul of greater than 25 points, a red-hot stretch that's been spurred by the second-year guard shooting 45.5 percent or better in five of those contests. Factoring in Wednesday's production, the 22-year-old is averaging 27.2 points, 4.9 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals across nine January games.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Mitchell is a 6-foot-3 combo guard out of Louisville with an imposing 6-foot-10 wingspan and top-tier athleticism, which helps smooth out his lack of size. He projects to be a near-NBA-ready defender right out of the gate, as he averaged 2.1 steals per game last season as a sophomore, leading the ACC. Mitchell also posted 15.6 points, 4.9 boards and 2.7 assists across 32.3 minutes while making 40.8 percent of his attempts from the field while hitting 2.4 threes per game at a 35.4 percent clip. Two things may stop Mitchell from having an impactful Fantasy season – his workload and his offensive readiness, or lack thereof. He’ll be joining a Jazz roster filled with guards such as Ricky Rubio, Dante Exum, Rodney Hood, Joe Johnson and others. He also wasn’t a particularly efficient player in college, which generally doesn’t bode well for rookies. All in all, Mitchell can probably be looked over in the majority of Fantasy formats during his first run as a professional.
