2019 Fantasy Outlook
Mitchell followed up an impressive rookie season with an even better second-year performance, reaching new career highs in points (23.8), assists (4.2) and rebounds (4.1). He drained 2.4 threes per tilt for the second straight season, boosting his three-point percentage to a respectable 36.2. The Louisville product contributed on the defensive side of the ball too, swiping 1.4 steals for the second year in a row. Mitchell had a huge role for the Jazz last season, logging a 30.9 usage rate, good for seventh in the NBA among players with at least 1900 minutes. He's likely to see that hefty usage rate decrease in 2019-20 with the addition of Mike Conley, who is a better all-around scorer and playmaker than former Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio. Conley will handle some of the backcourt load and enable Mitchell to play off-ball more frequently. New forward Bojan Bogdanovic could cut into Mitchell's production as well, given his natural scoring abilities. Even though his role may diminish slightly this season, Mitchell is still one of the best young guards in the league and will provide solid fantasy contributions in most categories, making him a clear early-round selection in all formats.

Drops game-high 31 points Monday
GUtah Jazz
April 23, 2019
Mitchell totaled 31 points (11-26 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 40 minutes during Monday's 107-91 victory over the Rockets.
Mitchell had his best game of the playoffs thus far, amassing 31 points, albeit on relatively inefficient shooting. The win keeps the series alive and the Jazz must now travel to Houston to face the Rockets in another must-win game. From a fantasy standpoint, Mitchell has put together a disappointing season, unable to improve on his impressive rookie campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
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.
