Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors made 8-of-15 field goal attempts in Friday's game at Minnesota, finishing with 16 points, four rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot. Favors is off to a nice start averaging 15.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game through his first two outings. As long as he is healthy he is a tremendous fantasy asset since he contributes in so many categories. The only area he struggles is from behind the arc.

Derrick Favors got off to a good start on Wednesday with 14 points, four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 28 minutes vs. the Nuggets. Favors made 7-of-14 shots without any free throws. He missed his only 3-point attempt, which is something to monitor -- power forwards are expected to have range in today's NBA, whereas Favors is a combined 4-of-26 from deep in his seven-year career. The key is that he's healthy.

Derrick Favors scored 12 points with five rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes against the Suns on Friday. He's healthy. Favors has been running up and down the court in the preseason and coach Quin Sndyer's trust to play him at power forward speaks volumes. The former Net said he felt like he was playing on one leg last year, so getting his explosiveness back could lead to a major bounce-back season. Once the reliable bigs come off the board, Favors has shown us enough to come off the board in the 80-100 range of a standard draft.

The Jazz started Ricky Rubio, Joe Ingles, Rodney Hood, Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert on their gray team for the intra-squad scrimmage. This is noteworthy because the Jazz look like they're going to give Favors some decent run at power forward, and this looks like the starting lineup. He did not perform well in that role last year, but that may have been due to him lack of mobility from an injury-plagued season. Favors is a strong bounce-back candidate and can be had cheaply in the later rounds of drafts.

Derrick Favors said he's feeling the healthiest he has in a year and a half entering training camp. Knee issues have plagued Favors for the past two seasons, and while it's nice to hear that he's feeling healthy on the eve of training camp, things could devolve quickly as he's forced to go through the rigors of an 82-game season. That being said, Favors does offer a decent amount of upside, and he's still just 26 years old, so maybe he can turn things around. Still, there's too much risk here to justify taking him prior to the later rounds on draft day.

The Jazz are receiving "a lot of interest" on Derrick Favors, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News. This report adds that Utah isn't looking to deal Favors, but he isn't off limits. Favors had a terrible year in 2016-17 due to lingering knee issues. He even tweeted he was playing on one leg, which caused the drop in most minutes and productivity. If Favors can bounce back from this knee issue, the 25-year-old big man could have a bounce-back season.
