Derrick Favors scored six points with seven rebounds and one steal in 16 minutes of action vs. the Clippers on Friday.
You don't hear much about the 29-year-old Favors, who returned to Utah this season after one year with the Pelicans. He's accepted a strict supporting role behind Rudy Gobert, which has resulted in a career-low 16.4 minutes per game. His defensive presence ensures there's no big drop-off while Gobert rests, and his per-minute stats are actually impressive enough for low-end value with an emphasis on percentages (62.9% FGs, 80.4% FTs), boards (5.6) and blocks (1.1). Don't hesitate to add him if Gobert is ever forced to miss extended time. Feb 20 12:54 am (EST)
