Notes 
 I actually don't mind the fit in Cleveland, but he'll naturally have some drop-off in production with Garland beside him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Garland, too, will take a slight hit but still put up near-elite level production. There are just a lot of mouths to feed in Cleveland, but we've seen him gel before with Collin Sexton.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 As of now, Donovan Mitchell is returing to the Jazz as Utah's clear leader. With Rudy Gobert now in Minnesota, Mitchell projects for similar usage and scoring load to Washington's Bradley Beal. Mitchell gets consistently high volume, attempting over 1300 shots in two of the past three seasons. His 25.9 PPG solidified his career-best 26.4 PPG in the 2020-2021 season. The 25-year-old shooting guard provides about 10 rebounds/assists per game, while tallying about 1.5 steals per contest. Mitchell could reach his fantasy ceiling in 2022-2023, on a Jazz team that appears to be in rebuilding mode.
Mike Randle - FTN
Darius Garland is on the verge of a huge fantasy season. The 22-year-old point guard has increased his scoring, rebounds, and assists in each of his first three seasons. His became more efficienct with his shot selection, pushing his field goal percentage to 4.62%, while also reaching a career-high in minutes per game (35.7). He is an elite fre-throw shooter (87.6%) and was the centerpiece for a Cleveland team that exceeded expectations. Garland could easily finish in the Top 25 overall fantasy players in 2022-2023.
