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 New Orleans Pelicans offense; however, he is still worth rostering in most formats.

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.

    Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Hauls in 15 boards Friday

    Derrick 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.

    Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Limited production continues

    Derrick 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.

    Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Scores eight in 20 minutes

    Derrick Favors had eight points (4-8 FG), nine rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes during Thursday's 123-118 loss to the Thunder.In nine games prior to this one, since Zion Williamson made his debut, Favors has seen 23.4 minutes per game and has produced 8.9 points, 9.4 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game. It didn't look any prettier in this one. Those numbers aren't terribly far off from his season averages, but Favors has fallen outside of the top 150 over the last two weeks. As Williamson continues to find his footing on this New Orleans Pelicans team, Favors' usage and production could drop even further. The 28-year old's rest-of-season outlook is gloomy, but he'll be a free agent this summer and could choose to look for greener pastures.
