Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Favors collected 25 points (10-12 FG, 5-5 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 24 minutes during Saturday's 125-85 victory over the Magic. Favors was excellent in the blow-out victory, scoring a season-high 25 points. He was highly efficient from both the field and the free-throw line, while adding a pair of blocks. He is locked in as the starting center until Rudy Gobert (knee) is able to return. He only saw 24 minutes of action today, but that was due to the nature of the score. Moving forward he should be receiving around 30 minutes per night, enough for him to be a must-own player.

Derrick Favors made 10-of-12 from the field and all five free throws for a season-high 25 points with 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 25 minutes against the Magic on Saturday. Besides the awesome stat line, this was probably the best Favors has looked all year. He was battling for position down low and he is establishing a nice rapport with Donovan Mitchell -- the guard threw one off the glass to feed Favors for a dunk. He is easily a beneficiary from the Rudy Gobert (knee) and things are looking up now that he looks spry again. He could be a sell-high player, but there's a good chance Favors cruises in the next month.

Favors recorded 15 points (5-11 FG, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 29 minutes in Friday's 118-107 loss to the Nets. As the Jazz continue to tinker with their lineup without Rudy Gobert in it, Favors appears to be their preferred method in replacing the big man via the four, with mixed results. They have marginal talent on the bench at the center position, so Favors should see increased usage for the foreseeable future, which makes him an interesting GPP option in the short term.

Favors totaled six points (3-11 FG), 10 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and one steal across 34 minutes during a 106-101 loss to the Knicks on Wednesday. Favors struggled to get much offense going for the second consecutive game, but was quite good in other areas as he picked up five assists and three blocks, both season highs. He will continue to get plenty of minutes while Rudy Gobert (knee) is sidelined, so he will likely continue to produce solid value during that span.

Derrick Favors made 3-of-11 shots for six points on Wednesday, adding 10 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and one steal in 34 minutes. Rudy Gobert (knee) will be re-evaluated in about a month, until which time Favors will be tasked with holding down the frontcourt. The expanded opportunity made him a red-hot fantasy pickup, and games like this help justify the decision -- he even came within two assists of his previous career-high.

Derrick Favors hit 4-of-9 shots for nine points, 10 rebounds and one block in 27 minutes of Monday's loss to Minnesota. He's starting at center for Rudy Gobert and should flourish for the next two months. He didn't blow anyone's socks off, but a near double-double with a block works, and he should be owned everywhere given Gobert's injury.

Derrick Favors said he's "excited" to step into a larger role for the Jazz while Rudy Gobert (knee) is sidelined. "I’m excited about it: It’s a new challenge for me," Favors said. "I get to be a big part of the offense now, and a big part of the defense too. It’s a big responsibility, but I’m ready for it." Favors posted a 24-point, 12-board double-double through 36 minutes as the starting center on Saturday, so he's obviously going to be the primary beneficiary of Gobert's absence. Thabo Sefolosha also moved into the starting five and ripped away five steals, so he's on the radar as a steals specialist.

Favors tallied 24 points (9-15 FG, 6-7 FT), 12 rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 36 minutes in Saturday's 114-106 win over the Nets. Favors saw a considerable bump in usage with Rudy Gobert (knee) sitting out the contest, which helped lead to season-high scoring and rebounding totals. The eight-year veteran also equaled his season high amount of shot attempts and posted his second double-double of the campaign. Favors' role is typically smaller when Gobert is healthy, but he's capable of double-digit scoring or boards on any given night.

Derrick Favors finished with season highs of 24 points, 12 rebounds and two blocked shots across 36 minutes in Saturday's win against the Nets. Favors stepped up and had a big game on the glass and with the blocked shots, helping pick up the slack with Rudy Gobert (knee). The French center was able to take part in warm-ups, so he isn't expected to be sidelined long. However, as long as Gobert is on the shelf Favors could see a slight increase in scoring, rebounds and blocked shots.

It's mostly because of two outlier games, but Derrick Favors is averaging 16 & 10 in the five games with no Gobert.
