G - UTH
The Jazz signed free agent G Jordan Clarkson to a four-year, $52 million contract Friday.
Clarkson re-signs with the Jazz after being traded from the Cavaliers last season. He will provide Utah with a scoring threat off the bench. His contributions with the second unti were a key to the Jazz success last year. Clarkson averaged 15.2 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 2.1 triples over 71 games for the Cavs/Jazz last season. Expect more of the same production from Clarkson in the upcoming 2020-21 campaign.
Jordan Clarkson recorded 17 points (6-14 FG, 4-7 3PT, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, and two assists over 26 minutes of play off the bench Tuesday.
Clarkson has played consistent minutes off the bench for the Jazz, though his fantasy stats have been up and down. He'll be a risky upside play in lineups Thursday in Game 6.
Jordan Clarkson was huge for the Jazz on Wednesday, posting 26 points (9-18 FG, 4-4 FT, 4-9 3PT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal across 29 minutes off the bench during the Jazz' 124-105 loss to the Nuggets in Wednesday's Game 2.
Clarkson possesses a green-light like no other and when his shot is falling, he is seemingly unguardable. Fortunately for those who had shares in daily fantasy, he was having one of those nights as he and Donovan Mitchell combined for just under half of Utah's 124 points. The 28-year-old guard appears to be thriving in his role for the Jazz and will remain an excellent value play in DFS heading into Friday's Game 3.
Jordan Clarkson posted 18 points (8-17 FG, 2-9 3PT), four rebounds, and three assists in Monday's 125-135 loss to the Nuggets.
Clarkson got some extra opportunity with Mike Conley out of the lineup, playing a season-high 39 minutes. While he wasn't especially effective, he was the third-highest scorer on the team while everyone seemingly stood back and watched The Donovan Mitchell Show. Conley is out on paternity leave and may have to quarantine upon his return, so target Clarkson in DFS while he should be playing a bigger role.
Jordan Clarkson compiled 18 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 FT, 5-7 3PT), and three rebounds in only 14 minutes during the Jazz' 114-122 loss to the Mavericks on Monday afternoon.
Clarkson got the start in this one and amazingly led the team in scoring despite only playing 14 minutes. Although he fails to contribute much outside of points, he remains a solid value in daily fantasy due to his low pricing and he is certainly the pulse of the Jazz' second unit. The 28-year-old guard is averaging 16.4 points per game in Orlando and will look to carry over his impressive scoring prowess into the playoffs.
