Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

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.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

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.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors played just 20 minutes and hit 2-of-7 shots for five points, two rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's loss to Philadelphia. And this was on a night when Joel Embiid wasn't even in the middle for the Sixers to slow Favors down. He's been in slow motion since last season and has become one of the more disappointing fantasy players around. While it still feels like Favors could get it turned around and have a decent season, he's averaging just 8.0 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.4 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.8 3-pointers on 44 percent shooting over his last five. He's not an automatic drop, but if you've seen enough and want to move on for a hot free agent, it's not as crazy as you might think, despite his big name.
