Injuries were a problem in the Jazz frontcourt last season, and Derrick Favors was not spared, as he missed 20 games, mostly due to back issues around the middle of the season. Favors managed to put together another strong season in spite of that, however, averaging 16.3 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.7 combined blocks and steals per game in the 62 games he did appear in. That is pretty much right where Favors was last season, as he seems to have settled in nicely as the team’s second offensive option. The 25-year-old has a solid all-around skill set, and is worth targeting in the third or fourth round on Draft Day as one of your first two big men.
