  • Derrick Favors ended up with 14 points and 12 rebounds over 32 minutes in Saturday's 125-113 victory against the Clippers.
    Advice: Favors hit 5-of-10 from the field while picking up three assist and a steal, and he had a game-best plus-18 rating. He is available, and some teams have called to ask about him, and performances like this will certainly help improve his stock and appeal. He remains a hold in standard leagues, but his short-term outlook is a bit murky. It might be best for his fantasy value if he remains in Salt Lake.
  • Derrick Favors scored seven points with seven rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 27 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.
    Advice: His on/off splits with Rudy Gobert have some stark differences, so his fantasy owners should expect him to take a noticeable dip on the stat sheet. Favors should still be able to be around 13 and eight with some defensive stats. He's still a hold in standard leagues.
  • Derrick Favors scored seven points Friday on 3-of-8 shooting as the Utah Jazz fell to the New York Knicks 117-115. Favors pulled down seven rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -15 in his 27:00 of playing time.

  • On ESPN's The Jump, Adrian Wojnarowski said that Derrick Favors is "available" and that teams are calling about him.
    Advice: Wojnarowski mentions the Cavaliers as a potential suitor, and it's no secret that they could use some rim protection -- they've also been linked to DeAndre Jordan. Favors has an expiring contract which is attractive to a team like Cleveland, and it makes sense for Jazz to entertain offers or he could simply walk as a free agent this summer.
  • Derrick Favors scored 14 points Wednesday on 5-of-9 shooting as the Utah Jazz topped the Sacramento Kings 120-105. Favors grabbed 11 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +5 in his 31:19 on the floor. He added one block.

  • Derrick Favors could be a potential trade target for the Cavs, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
    Advice: Cleveland is looking to add some size, and Favors is available, so it'll be interesting to see if anything becomes of this report. Favors value in Cleveland would depend on the moving pieces, but it's tough to see him improving his stock with the Cavs. He's also been linked to the Bulls, but his value would likely take a hit there if they didn't also move Robin Lopez.
  • Derrick Favors scored 16 points Monday, going 8 of 12 from the field, as the Utah Jazz lost to the Indiana Pacers 109-94. Favors pulled down seven rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -30 in his 29:27 of playing time. He added two blocks and three steals.
    Advice: Favors bounced back after being held to five points Friday in Charlotte, which ended an eight-game streak of double-digit scoring efforts. He continues to be a solid, mid-level fantasy center with averages of 13.8 points and 8.2 rebounds over his last 10 games and 1.7 blocks over his past six.

  • Derrick Favors (ankle) will play Friday vs. the Hornets.
    Advice: Favors missed Wednesday's game with the minor right ankle sprain, but he's a full four days off, so he should be good to go without any restrictions tonight. With Favors back in the mix, Ekpe Udoh will lose most of his value with the return to the second unit, and Jonas Jerebko won't play as much.
