Mack will return to the bench for Monday's game against the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

With point guard Elfrid Payton back from his one-game absence Monday, Mack will return to his role as the primary backup. Mack still didn't carry much fantasy value as a starter, so even with a dosage likely surpassing 20 minutes, he's not a serviceable DFS play moving forward.

Mack will start during Saturday's game against the Nuggets, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Elfrid Payton (rest/hamstring) sidelined, Mack will draw the start. Once Payton returns, however, he'll go back to a bench role, making him a risky fantasy option.

Mack will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Celtics, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Both Elfrid Payton (hamstring) and D.J. Augustin (hamstring) are slated to remain sidelined Sunday, so Mack will still be seeing an elevated role. However, coach Frank Vogel will opt to start Jonathon Simmons at point guard instead due to his strong play of late. That pushes Mack back to the bench, though he'll still serve as the team's backup point guard.

Mack finished with two points (1-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt), eight assists, five rebounds and one steal across 21 minutes during Friday's 105-83 loss to the Bulls.

EDGE Analysis

With both Elfrid Payton (hamstring) and D.J. Augustin (hamstring) out, Mack drew the start at point guard. While he didn't shoot well, he facilitated the offense, handing out eight dimes. He makes for a reasonable DFS option while Elfrid Payton and D.J. Augustin remain sidelined, but has little value in year-long formats.

Mack has been confirmed as the Magic's starting point guasrd Friday against the Bulls, Keith Smith of RealGM reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Mack will be thrust into a much larger role Friday with both D.J. Augustin and Elfrid Payton sitting out with hamstring injuries. As virtually the team's only true point guard, Mack should see an uptick in playing time after averaging 19.0 minutes per game through the season's first eight contests.

Mack is likely to start Friday's game against Chicago, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With both Elfrid Payton and D.J. Augustin sitting Friday due to hamstring injuries, the Magic will be down to their third point guard. Expect Mack, a journeyman out of Butler, to move into the lineup and see a fairly drastic increase in minutes. The hope is that Payton will be able to practice Saturday and return for Sunday's game vs. Boston.

Mack had nine points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight assists, and two rebounds in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 101-99 win over the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

Mack continues to step up with fellow point guard D.J. Augustin (hamstring) in the absence of Elfrid Payton (hamstring), with Augustin picking up the slack in scoring and Mack holding his own, particularly in the distributing and defensive departments. Nevertheless, Payton is apparently nearing his return, which would stand to take minutes away from Augustin and Mack unless there's a re-injury or blockbuster trade brewing behind the scenes.

Mack managed five points (1-4 FG, 1-1 3PT, 2-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 21 minutes during Saturday's 114-93 win over the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

Mack and D.J. Augustin made the most of their extra playing time, as Elfrid Payton (hamstring) sat. While it was Augustin who started and posted a double-double, Mack gave the Magic good minutes off the bench. Payton may sit out of Tuesday's matchup versus the Nets, in which case Mack could be a decent low-cost option in DFS.

Mack tallied five points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist over 16 minutes Saturday during a preseason matchup with the Heat.

EDGE Analysis

Mack will be competing with D.J. Augustin for the backup point guard role this season behind Elfrid Payton. While Mack played a career high 21.9 minutes in 2016-17, the split role with Augustin will make it tough for Mack to see an increased role in the upcoming season.

Mack is finalizing a two-year, $12 million contract to join the Magic, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mack, between injuries and DNP-CDs, played just 55 games last season. When he did see the floor, however, he averaged 7.8 points and 2.8 assists across 21.9 minutes per game while shooting 44.6 percent from the field and 30.8 percent from downtown. It's unclear what kind of role he may play with the Magic, as they already have reserve point guards D.J. Augustin and C.J. Watson under contract. For that reason, his fantasy value is largely to be determined, but it seems doubtful that he'll experience an extreme workload shift in either direction.
