Derrick Favors flirts with double-double in win

Derrick Favors chipped in nine points (4-6 FG, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and two blocks in 22 minutes during the Pelicans' 120-107 victory over the Timberwolves on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Favors was solid on Sunday and came one point and one rebound shy of a double-double. The 10-year vet has produced nicely and has received an uptick in minutes so far during the month of March. For fantasy purposes, Favors is typically a good source of rebounds but is rather inconsistent on offense. Favors and the Pelicans have won two straight and have two days off before taking on the Kings Wednesday.

Derrick Favors has quiet night in win over Heat

Derrick Favors chipped in six points (3-5 FG), four rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes during the Pelicans' 110-104 victory over the Heat on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Favors was quiet on Friday night grabbing only four rebounds, which happens to be one more than his season low. Favors is typically inconsistent on offense with so many shots to go around on this Pelicans roster, but his four rebounds are way lower than his season average of 10 per game. The 10-year vet will look to make more of an impact on Sunday as the Pelicans take on the Timberwolves.

Derrick Favors double-doubles in loss to Mavericks

Derrick Favors racked up 10 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3PT, 0-2 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists, a block and a steal across 32 minutes during the Pelicans' 123-127 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Favors has been an absolute monster on the glass as of late, averaging nearly 11 boards throughout the past seven games. The big-man has also double-doubled twice in his last three games and although he isn't a reliable option on offense, he is still highly capable of scoring in double-figures, as he averages nearly 10 points per game. Favors and the Pelicans have Thursday off before returning home to take on the Miami Heat on Friday.

Derrick Favors chips in 10 points in loss to Timberwolves

Derrick Favors registered 10 points (5-6 FG), six rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes of action during the Pelicans' 139-134 loss to the Timberwolves on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact

Favors enjoyed his second consecutive game scoring in double-figures while grabbing six rebounds on the night. The ten-year pro continues to start at the center spot but fails to produce much outside of rebounds. Favors and the Pelicans will host the Mavericks on the second night of a back-to-back set on Wednesday.

Derrick Favors pulls down 14 boards in Sunday's loss

Derrick Favors finished with 12 points (5-12 FG, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, one steal and a block over 27 minutes in the Pelicans’ 122-114 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Favors double-doubled in Sunday's loss, grabbing double-digit boards for the fourth time in his last five contests. In that span, the big man has averaged 6.8 points and 10.3 boards while shooting a healthy 61.9 percent from the field. Despite the lack of scoring, Favors' solid rebounding and shooting, couple with his 1.8 combined blocks/steals per contest make him a worthy starter in 12-team leagues, despite the emergence of Zion Williamson.
