Derrick Favors had an efficient night at the office on Saturday, shooting 8-of-11 to finish with 19 points, six rebounds, three steals and a block in a home victory.
Favors is enjoying his run of the frontcourt with Rudy Gobert out of action, racking up top-100 value over the last two weeks and top-60 numbers in the last week. With Gobert set to miss at least two more with a sprained MCL, keep Favors in all lineups through mid-January. He’s a wise sell high candidate, however, and owners shouldn’t cling too tightly to his solid performances. Favors has done well to return middle-round value on the full season but will probably peak in production during this current stretch.
