"It's going to get better in a few days," Gobert said. "It feels good. I'm still mad about my free throws, but it feels good. Five in a row."

Derrick Favors, Rudy Gobert emerge as elite Fantasy plays
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, I wrote about the development of Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors since the team decided to build around them at the trade deadline:
"In 11 games since the All-Star break, both Favors and Gobert have looked like elite Fantasy options while anchoring the league's stingiest defense. Gobert rates out as the No. 2 center in Rotisserie leagues over the last three weeks thanks to his gaudy rebounding and defensive stats, and Favors comes in at No. 4, ahead of names like Andre Drummond and Marc Gasol. Could the Jazz have two early-round Fantasy picks in their frontcourt next season?
Favors is the more known quantity of the two, and his development has followed a relatively smooth progression. He has increased his scoring in each season in the NBA, while also seeing his True Shooting percentage, usage and per-minute scoring numbers all increase on a nearly yearly basis.
Since the Jazz decided to move Kanter at the deadline, Gobert has been playing like a first-round Fantasy pick. He is averaging 10.5 points, 14.1 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 3.1 blocks per game, numbers that are basically unheard of in the modern NBA. No player has averaged 10-plus points, 14-plus rebounds, one-plus steals and three-plus blocks per game since 1989-90, and the four players who did so for an entire season are all in the Hall-of-Fame: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bob McAdoo, Hakeem Olajuwon and Bill Walton. Gobert probably isn't a hall-of-famer in the making, but he's hanging out in some rarified air right now."
Both players look like must-start Fantasy options for the rest of the season, and might have top-three round value in keeper leagues at the pace they are on.
|Jazz center Rudy Gobert is destined to play his first full season in the league behind Enes Kanter. Gobert was shuffled in and out of the active roster and spent some parts of the season with the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League. As a result, the 7-foot-1 big man was limited to only 45 games. he finished the season with averages of 2.3 points and 3.4 rebounds in 9.6 minutes per game while shooting 48.6 percent from the field. Gobert was a marginal contributor last season, and because we don't know what kind of role he'll have with newly hired coach Quin Snyder, he should be ignored in nearly all formats on Draft Day.
