Description: Utah power forward Derrick Favors is looking to build off his career-best season.
Insight: He averaged a career-high in points (13.3 PPG), rebounds (8.7 RPG), assists (1.2 APG), and steals per game (1.0) last season, and at only 23-years-old is destined to improve on those numbers. He has a career .506 field goal percentage, along with a career-average of 1.3 blocks per game. Favors should be going around the fifth or sixth round of drafts, and owners should not be afraid to pick this potential breakout candidate. He also will have eligibility at the center position as well.
