Derrick Favors 2018-2019 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

Looks like he may be returning to the starting lineup after he signed with the Jazz again.

 

Last season he actually stayed healthy most of the season and came away  playing in 77 contests and averaging 12.3 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 blocks in 28.0 minutes per contest while shooting a career-best 56.3 percent from the field.

 

I don't see him greatly improving upon those number this season, but he will probably stay right around the same or maybe a tick up.  My projection is:  13/8/1.5/1.

 

Thoughts on Favors this season?

I dont think his stats will improve this season because of Crowder getting a few more minutes at the 4.

At the half of this Jazz-Kings pre season game Favors has posted a 9 point, 11 Reb, 1/1/1 (3, Blk, Stl) on 4-4 shooting. 

I'd like to see him more involved in the offense though. 3 baskets were either tip ins or alley hoop dunks. Then again if he can just be a rim finisher, protector and glass cleaner there is some value here. And if his improved 3 point emphasis is real and not a fancy off season dream there might be something to this guy being relevant this year especially considering where he is going in drafts. I got him 130th overall in my 12 team H2H 8 cat Dynasty league. With a 130th overall price tag I'm kind of excited about him.

Ive been out of the game for a few years so i was shocked to see favors have an ADP of 133. 

 

He was a beast two or years ago going in the earlier rounds... what happened? I understand the emergence of gobert probably has a role to play in that.

 

is there a chance for him to get back to early round those levels?

He bought the wrong mattress a couple years ago and it's been all downhill since then.

Utah's still figuring out different ways they could use him in this offense with him and Gobert out there. He's a really good rim runner but so is Gobert. So they're trying to utilize D-Fav more on the perimeter and have him develop a 3 point shot and that still feels like a work in progress( he did go 2 of 3 in the preseason so that's at least encouraging).

I'm gonna pick him up. I think he's a solid end of roster guy, especially if you need a big.

Yeah if you can get him late he's definitely worth it, if Rudy get's injured(which hopefully doesn't happen) but if it does he's fantasy value explodes.

Does anyone plan on holding this guy ROS? Minutes are not looking good and Cedi is available for pickup....

Cedi has WAY more upside. I would probably make that pickup if it were me. Although, I am not quite ready to give up on Favors just yet. I think he will still have value this season. But, I may eat my words in a few months too...

 

Cheers

Cedi is a must-pickup, but I'd look for someone else to drop. Favors having a good night and I liked the look of him in the preseason.

What do you think about Gay or Isaac on a punt assist team? Really having trouble deciding and don’t want to miss out on the Cedi hype train

I dunno, man. I'm not as high on Isaac as some. I'd try the assistant coach forum.

Buy low? 

 

If it wasn't for 3 fouls in 1st quarter he would have had a very solid game. Idk about "buy low" but if you can trade someone low end for him or if you need a big man then Favors will produce all year long for you.

True. I’m sure there are some impatient unhappy owners out there with him already though.

I love coming the the Derrick Favors thread and the last three posts are about Cedi, Gay and Isaac. Never change Rotoworld forums.

Cedi is looking like a smart pick too solid all around game

 

Would rank them Cedi>Gay>Isaac in pts Cedi>Isaac>Gay in roto

Is everyone still holding? Seeing Crowder trend up on the team and closing out games instead of Favors. Do we think Crowder eventually takes the starting gig from Favors?

Even if he goes to the bench, he'll still get around mid 20s. Might help to play against second units too.

I second this. 

I'd imagine playing similar minutes in lineups without Gobert would give him a better chance at matching last year's productivity when Gobert was out.
