Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors hit 1-of-3 shots to score two points on Wednesday, adding 10 rebounds and a pair of blocks in 30 minutes vs. the Bulls. Favors didn't get to the free throw line tonight, so he finished with a season-low usage rate of 5.9 percent -- just the third time this season he's been in single-digits. Rudy Gobert was also quiet with six points on 3-of-7 shooting (10.8% usage), as Utah's guards simply dominated the ball offensively. At least Favors' rebounds and blocks prevented it from being a total wash.

Derrick Favors finished with 14 points, three rebounds and a blocked shot over 27 minutes in Saturday's loss at Milwaukee. Favors pumped the brakes on a season-high three-game streak with single-digit point totals, which simply will not do for fantasy owners. The only trade off is that his points were up, but his rebounds were way down. His three boards were his lowest total since Nov. 10. He was on fire at the end of November, but he has been as cold as the Wasatch snow in December. His sell-high window has slammed shut and now you need him to heat up again.

Derrick Favors hit just 2-of-4 shots for five points, five rebounds, one steals and two blocks in Thursday's 112-101 loss to the Rockets. Don't be fooled by the score, as this game was over by the end of the third quarter. Rudy Gobert and Favors did not play well again together for the Jazz, and Favors suddenly looks like a drop candidate now that Gobert is back. He's averaging just 7.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over his last three games. There's a decent chance he'll get hot again, despite the presence of Gobert, but it's far from a guarantee.

Derrick Favors had just nine points, six rebounds and a block in 23 minutes of Tuesday's 100-94 loss to the Thunder. Favors was rolling with Rudy Gobert out, but in his two games with Gobert back in action, is averaging just 9.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in 24 minutes. The sell-high window has likely closed, but there's still a chance Favors could get hot while playing power forward alongside Gobert. But chances are the player we saw while Gobert was out isn't going to return to us any time soon.

Derrick Favors shifted to power forward on Monday vs. the Wizards and finished with nine points, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal in 25 minutes. Before the game, coach Quin Snyder said that he's going to try and keep Favors heavily involved by giving him the backup center minutes behind Rudy Gobert -- Ekpe Udoh was getting those minutes earlier in the season. His ceiling isn't nearly as high with Gobert back, but Favors should be able to hold onto some nice value if Snyder keeps his word. We didn't see it much tonight because of the 47-point blowout, so we'll be watching closely on Wednesday.

Favors tallied 18 points (7-9 FG, 4-7 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists and two steals across 34 minutes in Friday's 114-108 win over the Pelicans. The veteran big man continues to be an above-average source of scoring and rebounding for both the Jazz and fantasy owners while drawing starts at center in Rudy Gobert's (knee) stead. Favors now has back-to-back double-doubles, and he's shot at least 62.5 percent in five straight contests while scoring in double digits in each of those games.

Derrick Favors notched 18 points with 11 rebounds, five assists and two steals in 34 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday. He had a really strong game against DeMarcus Cousins, and he's basically been a new player since Rudy Gobert (knee) went down. Gobert is set to be re-evaluated next week and will more than likely be cleared based on recent reports, so Favors' owners should prepare for a dip in value.

Favors provided 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and one steal across 28 minutes in Thursday's 126-107 win over the Clippers. Favors continues to thrive as the starting center while Rudy Gobert (knee) remains sidelined, as he's now scored in double digits in six of the last seven contests. The eight-year veteran has shot no less than Thursday's 62.5 percent in the last four contests while also hauling in between six and 12 rebounds in each of the last 10 games. Given his current bump in usage, Favors continues to be a highly appealing frontcourt option in all season-long and daily formats.

Favors posted 24 points (12-16 FG), nine rebounds, five assists, three blocks and one steal across 33 minutes in Tuesday's 106-77 win over the Nuggets. The veteran big man continues to draw starts at center and thrive with them, as he now has five double-digit scoring efforts in the last six games. That stretch includes a trio of 20-point efforts, as Favors continues to take on a larger offensive role than usual with Rudy Gobert (knee) sidelined, as he's put up double-digit shot attempts in five of the last seven contests.

Derrick Favors was a beast on Tuesday, hitting 12-of-16 shots for 24 points, nine rebounds, five assists, a steal and three blocks in a blowout win over the Nuggets. Whoa. Don't look now, but Favors has experienced a resurgence with the loss of Rudy Gobert, averaging 19.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.8 blocks over his last five games. He really looked fantastic tonight and if you added him, or held him, after Gobert went down, it looks like the move is going to pay big dividends. We haven't seen Favors play this well in two years.
