Notes 
 Favors logged just over 15 minutes per game last season, but his per-36 averages were impressive: 12.8, 13.0, and 3.5 combined blocks/steals while shooting better than 63% from the floor. Al Horford had plenty of success in OKC when healthy and on the floor, and Favors could fill a similar role if the Thunder decide not to give Isaiah Roby a major role this season. Favors will likely be slept on, but he's got a realistic path to top-120 numbers, assuming he gets 25 minutes a night.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Despite the massive (and surprising) extension Gordon just signed, he's not a guy to target in drafts outside deep leagues. In 35 games with the Nuggets (regular season and playoffs), he averaged just 10.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 27.1 minutes. A poor FT shooter and never prolific from long-range, Gordon has limited upside in a crowded Nuggets frontcourt.
