Rudy Gobert

Utah Jazz

Rudy Gobert goes for 16 and 13 vs. OKC

Gobert was very efficient from the floor, going 8-of-11, while taking good care of the basketball. That's three games and three double-doubles for the Frenchman. The only thing fantasy owners could possibly complain about might be the lack of a blocked shot from his scoring line, but the blocks will come soon enough for The Stifle Tower.

  • Rudy Gobert posts 18 & 10 w/ six turnovers

    Gobert also committed an uncharacteristic six turnovers in 35 minutes, which tied his career high (he's had six TOs once in each of the past two seasons). Turnovers are the least of his owners' concerns, and it was great to see him knock down all of his freebies tonight. The blocks will come very soon, in large quantities.

  • Rudy Gobert goes beast mode on Lakers

    Gobert was a monster tonight and took advantage of Brook Lopez and every other center the Lakers put out there. He was dunking, hitting left handed bank shots and dominating the paint for most of the night. Yeah, it was only a preseason game, but Gobert is a legitimate late first-round fantasy pick, and shouldn't be available in the third round of any leagues.

  • Rudy Gobert (rest) out Monday vs. Phoenix

    The Jazz are on a back-to-back set during the preseason, so they'll go ahead and keep their franchise center on the sidelines. We should see some more Ekpe Udoh, Joel Bolomboy and Tony Bradley tonight, but none of those guys will be worth owning once the regular season is underway.

  • Rudy Gobert scores nine with 12 boards

    The Jazz are going to expand his offensive arsenal this year. He was neck and neck with DeAndre Jordan for the most efficient roll man last year, and Ricky Rubio's Wolves were also among the most efficient roll-man teams in the league, so the 1-5 PNR figures to be a pet play for the Jazz. Gobert upside in blocks makes him a candidate to be drafted in the first round.

  • Rudy Gobert focused on offensive improvement

    "Those are my two main focuses," Gobert said, in addition to "getting stronger, improving [his] lower-body strength and working on [his] quickness." He hopes to "show even more" offensively now that Gordon Hayward and George Hill left in free agency, and it shouldn't be hard for Gobert to increase his 16.7 percent usage rate from the 2016-17 season.

  • Lindsey: Jazz to build around Rudy Gobert

    "We feel like we can build defensively around Rudy Gobert," Lindsey said. "We look at him, and he's a top 10 player and unique defender. So we wanted to build a team around his talents." Lindsey added that he wants to showcase Gobert's ability, so the 25-year-old big man seems poised for a career year as the clear franchise player. If he can keep improving from the free throw line, there's no reason why he can't be a top-10 fantasy player -- he shot 65.3 percent from the stripe last season.

  • Gobert, Kawhi and Dray for DPOY

    These are the only three options here with each having some clear strengths over the others. Gobert is the best rim protector in the league, Kawhi is as good as it gets on the perimeter, and no player is better at team defense than Draymond. This will likely be one of the closest awards on June 26.

  • NBA announces All-NBA second team

    The Stifle Tower had a massive breakout year as an elite roll man to go with arguably the best rim protection in the league. Somehow, Gobert didn't make the All-Star team, which is another reason why we can't take All-Star Game voting seriously. If Gobert can put it together at the free throw line, he could reach truly elite fantasy value.

  • Gobert won't play with French national team

    Gobert suffered a minor knee injury in the first round of the 2017 postseason vs. the Clippers and cited that as one of the reasons he declined playing for Team France. "It was a tough decision for me. But there's my recent knee injury in playoffs, the long season, discussions with my club... I need to work on my body this summer," said Gobert.
