  • Favors averaged 8.2 points, 9.8 rebounds and one assist in nine games since the All-Star break. Favors finished in double figures in three of nine games since the break, recording two double-doubles over that stretch. As the team's starting center, he'll consistently see around 25 minutes on a nightly basis once NBA action resumes.

  • Favors tallied 10 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 127-123 loss to the Mavericks. Favors recorded a double-double in 32 minutes, the most he has played since mid-January. After what can only be described as a feeling-out period, Favors appears to be getting used to sharing the court with Zion Williamson. He has now scored in double-digits in three straight games, averaging 10.7 points and 11.3 rebounds over that period. His ceiling is certainly capped given his role in the Pelicans offense; however, he is still worth rostering in most formats.

  • Favors contributed 12 points (5-12 FG, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Lakers. In the four post-break games prior to this one, Favors' scoring has been worse than it was beforehand, putting up just 6.8 points per game in that span. Although, he's still been a top 100 player during that period thanks to his 10.3 boards, 1.0 blocks, 0.8 steals and 61.9 percent shooting. He showed those hustle stats early in this game, accumulating 10 boards, one steal and one block by half-time. While it hasn't been the career fantasy year that some may have hoped for, Favors is still doing enough to be worth owning in most leagues.

  • Favors finished with five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 24 minutes during Friday's 116-104 victory over Cleveland. Favors grabbed a game-high 15 rebounds in the victory, while also contributing across the board. Favors presents as an interesting pickle for many given the obvious cap on his playing time and subsequent production. He is likely to flirt with top-100 numbers moving forward; however, much of his value is tied to his rebounding and shot-blocking ability. If you aren't desperate for wither of those, you are likely better served streaming his position.

  • Favors ended with just six points (3-4 FG, 0-1 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 115-101 victory over the Warriors. Favors downward trajectory continued Sunday in what was another unproductive effort other than the boards. The addition of Zion Williamson has certainly had a negative impact on Favors' overall value, making him tough to consider a must-roster player in many formats. His role as the starting center appears set in stone, but he isn't seeing a starter's minutes load. At this stage, Favors is only offering upside in rebounds, so if they aren't on your wish list, he has very limited value.
