Going 50-32 last season, the Jazz were able to secure a playoff spot but fell to the Rockets. The Jazz have a sneakily good roster that's easily overlooked, but in my opinion they're poised to make another run to the playoffs and maybe win a series or two. Falling in the first round of the playoffs is incredibly disheartening, but I believe the Jazz can bounce back from this season. Players like Conley and Gobert aren't necessarily the first people folks think of when they're picturing stars, but something about this Jazz team just flows extraordinarily well together.

After being with the Grizzlies since 2007, Conley will finally be shaking things up this year by starting at point for the Jazz. Last year, he averaged 21.1 points per game and 6.4 assists. He was in the 20s overall in both of those stats throughout the NBA.
Mitchell put up another great season in his second year in the NBA last year. He averaged 23.8 points per game with a PER of 17.26. Having Conley with him in the front court with him may cut into his PPG a bit, but overall it will make the Jazz better.
This will be Ingles 6th season with the Jazz (and in the NBA). He's been a part of both good and bad Jazz teams up until this point, but I think this is the best roster he's ever been a part of. He averaged 12.2 points per game last season with 4.0 rebounds.
Coming off two season with the Pistons, Bogdanovic wear a Utah Jazz jersey come the first game of the season. Last year with the Pistons, he averaged 18.0 points per game with 4.1 rebounds. He had a PER of 16.14 which put him at 147th overall in the NBA.
Gobert will be entering his 7th season with the Jazz in the 2019-20 campaign. He was 4th in the NBA in rebounds last year, averaging 12.9 per game. His PER of 24.60 had him at 16th overall in the NBA. Gobert is a huge part of the Jazz's current success.
Wright-Foreman was taken 53rd overall (second round) of the 2019 NBA Draft. He'll come off the bench for Mike Conley after averaging 27.1 points and 2.9 assists per game last year for Hofstra.
Mudiay spent the last two season on the Knicks but will be suiting up for the Jazz this year. He averaged 14.8 points per game last season with 3.3 rebounds and 3.9 assists in an average of 27.2 minutes played per game.
O'Neale has been a part of the NBA/Jazz for the past two season. He averaged 20.4 minutes per game last year with a field goal percentage of 47.5. He didn't shoot too much, though, as he only averaged 5.2 points per game. It would be helpful for him to get his rebounding stats up, as he averaged just 3.5 per game last season.
The veteran forward spent last season with the Wizards averaging 12.3 points per game in an average of 27.2 minutes. He's been in the league since 2007, so he'll definitely be able to provide some veteran leadership to this Jazz team.
Ed Davis will be coming off the bench for Rudy Gobert. He averaged 17.9 minutes per game last year with the Nets, averaging 5.8 points per game with 8.6 rebounds per game, which had him ranked at 26th in the NBA despite only playing an average of 17.9 minutes per game.
