Rudy Gobert 2014-2015 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

I haven't really watched Jazz games, but I don't get why Favors is center?

Would make more sense to start this guy at C imo.

That coach hates Kanter. He was always on the bench last year. I wouldn't be surprised if Gobert got some decent run once Kanter's lack of defense shows.

Really? I always took it that the coach talks him up all the time and likes the young man.

Could be, you never know. Can't hurt to stick him on the bench and see how the Jazz front court plays out.

Kanter has a better jump shot and a greater range than Favours and Kanter can't defend in the paint. Actually, Kanter can't really defend anywhere.

Kanter is also better with his back to the basket. Favors likes to face up.

Gobert will steal enough minutes from Kanter, no worries.

I expect the talent to win out here.

Who is he stuck behind? Just Favors and Kanter, correct? Any other big in the mix-- whose the backup PF?

Trevor Booker and Jeremy Evans are the backup PFs. Not that much to worry about,but still good for like 20 mpg.

So we are looking at 96 minutes at the C/PF position split between 5 guys, average that out, we've got ~19min per player.

Of course, Kanter ~28 and Favors ~32, leaving ~36min for the remaining 3 guys. Booker is one of those guys who can contribute with sheer effort, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him get minutes. Evans can also play SF, and I don't expect him to play much.

Gobert could see 15-20min a game, and pending foul trouble, upwards of 25min. If you are looking for blocks (me), I think he's worth grabbing (personally however, I might grab Dalembert for now).

Derrick Favors has trouble staying out of foul trouble so even though Gobert's minutes won't be consistent as first he should still be able to get some run.

I don't think he's useful in 10-12 team leagues unless you are streaming for blocks. However, I think when you get to 14+ teams, specialists become much more valuable due to the depth of the rosters and Rudy will have some solid value there.

Blocks, rebounds and FG% galore. Plus, Utah have a very friendly fantasy play-off schedule - if they are out of contention you can bet that there will be some nagging injuries to help with the tank and extra playing time for the Frenchman.

His FT% is on par with Noel though... :/

F it, I grabbed him. Why not? As mentioned above, those weak at blocks (me), it's worth a shot.
