With Al Jefferson out of Utah, the path is clear for Favors to start at center. What are you expecting out of him if Millsap stays? what about if Millsap leaves?

10rpg and 2bpg are near locks to me.

I agree with this.

3rd round is the latest I'll let Favors drop.

I expect Millsap to stay put but regardless, the door is now open for Favors to start and I expect him to put up huge numbers. Maybe something like 15.3 PPG, 10.4 RPG, 2.3 BPG, possibly just over 1 SPG, with an excellent FG% (am I being too optimistic?). I just hope his FT% sees the same northward bump that it's seen over the past few seasons.

I think that's slightly optimistic, but not far off. Per 36 last year, Favors put up 14.6/11 with 1.3 stl and 2.6 blk. If we assume he gets a full slate of minutes, I think we can expect around 13/10 with the same stl and blk numbers you suggested.

I think that's his baseline though, ignoring any growth in his game. If he improves significantly over the offseason we could be looking at a monster now that the rotation has been cleared up for him.

I just want to thank Al Jefferson for leaving. Favors can use his athleticism and quicks to abuse centers while remaining a defensive force. I hated when Favors had to play PF and defend guys who take him out of the paint and out of his comfort zone.

Milsaps and Jefferson gone?

It was frustrating to roster Favors last year but he's going to be a solid keeper and I only have to give up a 10th rounder or so to keep him.

Wow. Great value as a 10th round keeper. I could easily see people reaching into the 3rd or 4th for him this season.

It's obviously very early but I'm going to guess that he'll be gone.

UNLEASH!! Really that early? I'd hope to scoop him in the 5th round and beyond.

I took him in the 6th round of a dynasty start-up that drafted at the end of last season. I can't wait to get him into action.

Nightly 15/10 with 2 blocks and a steal? Yes please. His FT% has been trending upwards every single year, too. If he could break into the 70s, which is pretty realistic, that would be phenomenal. I'm pegging him as a 4th round talent, with the 3rd round being a very appropriate reach.

I've been looking at this as the key to just how valuable he can be. If he breaks 70%, his ceiling in fantasy is pretty ridiculous.

While you guys sleep on the more talented Kanter, I'll take him around 5 rounds later. Thanks :)

I'll admit that Kanter is being very underrated right now, but I wouldn't exactly say he's better than Favors. Kanter has the advantage in efficiency and points, while Favors has the advantage in stocks and turnovers.

Go visit the Kanter thread, then come back and tell me again how I'm sleeping on him.

who you guys like more this year Sanders or Favors?

Favors could hit hit 15/12, 2.5 blks 1.5 stls (those are his per 36 numbers last year btw) - that would be better than Larry

I know Sanders is a sure thing but I'm leaning towards Favors - am I wrong?

Thats a tough question, I'd still go Sanders because he's the more known quantity at this point due to his breakout season last year but I'm expecting big things from Favors especially with both Milsap and Jeff gone.

Can I have them both? probably a guaranteed win in blocks if you have them both, along with strong rebounding support.

Having those 2 can afford you the luxury of drafting guys like David Lee and Kevin Love.
