PROJECTED 2015 SEASON STATS
1. Derrick Favors, Uta PF, CYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics7330.2.522.6690.08.71.20.711.01.51.813.3
2015 Projections7533.1.512.6730.09.81.30.621.11.82.114.2
2015 Outlook: In a season that will be considered a disappointment by most, Favors underperformed compared to his high expectations, but still managed to finish 56th on our Player Rater after a strong second half. With averages of 14.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.7 blocks while shooting 55.2 percent from the floor in just 29.7 minutes per game after the All-Star break, it's easy to see the 23-year-old's massive potential. Some owners may be wary after spending a high draft pick last season on Favors, but the big man is still improving, and is a perfect post-hype breakout candidate as he enters his fifth season in the league. --BM
2. Gordon Hayward, Uta SG, SFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics7736.4.413.8161.15.15.21.891.40.52.816.2
2015 Projections7735.9.422.8191.25.24.81.921.30.62.516.0
2015 Outlook: Hayward parlayed his breakout season into a four-year, $63 million contract to remain in Utah. The Jazz may have been forced to overpay for Hayward, but the 24-year-old is extremely versatile with 16.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.1 3-pointers last season. He shot only 41.3 percent from the floor, but his 81.6 percent from the line helped him finish 39th on our Player Rater. Hayward has improved massively in each of his first four seasons, and the Jazz will continue to rely heavily on him on the offensive end, even with Dante Exum in town. Given his ability to put up numbers in multiple categories, Hayward is a fantastic pick in the fourth or fifth round. --BM
3. Trevor Booker, Uta PFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics7221.6.551.6180.05.30.91.100.60.60.86.8
2015 Projections6321.3.536.6050.05.30.91.140.60.60.86.6
2015 Outlook: After spending four seasons in Washington as a spot starter and role player off the bench, Booker joins the Jazz, where he'll provide support behind Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter in the frontcourt. Booker had some fleeting value in deeper leagues with 8.0 points, 6.2 boards and 0.9 blocks in 45 starts, and will be in a similar situation this season in Utah. --BM
4. Steve Novak, Uta PFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics5410.0.4111.0001.01.10.22.600.20.10.13.3
2015 Projections7114.5.426.9051.41.40.33.000.30.10.15.1
2015 Outlook: Novak was a solid 3-point specialist in deeper fantasy leagues for two seasons with the Knicks before struggling in Toronto last year. Now in Utah, the career 43.2 percent shooter from downtown can certainly help the Jazz spread the court off the bench, but he shouldn't be an option in fantasy leagues - BM
5. Jeremy Evans, Uta SFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics6618.3.527.6800.04.70.71.100.60.70.66.1
2015 Projections5315.3.535.6720.03.90.61.190.50.60.55.1
2015 Outlook: Evans may have won the Slam Dunk Contest in 2012, but he's been buried on the bench in Utah with just 11.6 minutes per game in his four-year career. He averaged 6.1 points and 4.7 rebounds in only 18.3 minutes per game off the bench last season. Sure, he can dunk, but he won't be relevant in fantasy leagues if he's getting less than 20 minutes per game. - BM
