Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Favors tallied 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-7 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots and a steal across 29 minutes in Saturday's 121-108 win over the Bucks. Favors is the Jazz's replacement for Rudy Gobert( (knee) while he's sidelined, and while he isn't producing Gobert's numbers, he's done admirably in his absence, as he's averaged 15.9 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks since taking over at center. Favors is an excellent spot start and GPP candidate until Gobert returns.

Favors recorded 23 points (8-11 FG, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 110-80 win over the Bulls. As the primary replacement for Rudy Gobert (knee), Favors has emerged as an attractive fantasy option off the waiver wire. He's executing effectively on both sides of the ball and is averaging 15.9 points, 9.1 rebounds and 1.6 blocks across seven games since Gobert's injury. With no clear timetable for Gobert's return, Favors becomes a must-add target and a rosterable player for at least the next month.

Utah rolled past the Bulls on Wednesday, 110-80, led by Derrick Favors' 23 points on 8-of-11 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block. Favors said afterward that he's trying to be more aggressive offensively, and it paid off nicely tonight with Utah's second win in their past five games -- including Utah's biggest margin of victory all season. The quality of the competition had a lot to do with the score, but Favors did look particularly good in pick-and-rolls tonight. He's paying off nicely for owners who grabbed him when Rudy Gobert (knee) went down.

Derrick Favors hit 3-of-8 shots for nine points, seven rebounds and a block in Monday's 107-86 loss to the Sixers. Favors had to deal with The Process tonight and was a far cry from the guy who posted 25 points and 11 rebounds on 10-of-12 shooting on Saturday. Favors is still worth owning as long as Rudy Gobert is out, despite the inconsistency.

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.
