Keyonte George totaled 21 points (7-17 FG, 1-8 3PT, 6-10 FT), six rebounds, and six assists in the Trail Blazers’ 118-113 loss to the Jazz.

Fantasy Impact:

George scored 21.0 points in the Jazz’s win over the Trail Blazers, making this his first game with more than 20.0 points. Although his scoring contribution took a backseat to his understated production in rebounds and assists earlier this year, he has since picked up his points production, reminding us of his promising scoring upside. This development is encouraging for George’s overall fantasy value as a multi-categorical contributor and could move him into must-roster territory. He will undoubtedly continue to face growing pains as the season continues; however, it appears George is experiencing a positive developmental journey that allows him to contribute impactful value while working through his shortcomings as a rookie. His situation in Utah is proving to be an ideal environment for his short and long-term success and should continue to aid his fantasy value and appeal in most season-long leagues. Given the newness of George’s untested production level, his price point may be too inflated to consider him in daily formats. He has a usage rate of 20.5 percent, a plus-minus of -5.4, and averages 26.0 minutes, 10.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.1 blocks per game while shooting 34.7 percent from the floor and 31.1 percent from beyond the arc.
