Rudy Gobert had 16 points, 14 rebounds, a steal and three blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers.

He hit 6-of-11 shots and if you were faced with a decision on whether to pick up Gobert or Gorgui Dieng before the trade deadline, we hope you went with Rudy G. Dude can't fail.
Feb 26 - 2:02 AM

Rudy Gobert scored seven points on 3-of-6 shooting with 14 rebounds, two steals and three blocks over 31 minutes in the Jazz's 90-81 win over the Spurs on Monday.

Gobert is just scratching the surface and he's a game-changer in both fantasy and reality basketball. If you had the foresight to draft him and stay the course, you're about to get paid off in a massive way.
Feb 24 - 1:29 AM

Rudy Gobert blocked five shots in his first start following the Enes Kanter trade, and also chipped in with four points, seven rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes on Friday.

Gobert got into some foul trouble and that's going to be a small issue for him, but this is just an appetizer for the buffet of stats that's about to come. And yes, there are still folks out there who don't know this is coming so plunder away.

Rudy Gobert moved into the starting lineup on Friday night against the Blazers.

Feb. 20, 2015 is the start of a beautiful era. It's Gobert time, you guys.
Feb 20 - 7:33 PM

Rudy Gobert scored two points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks in 27 minutes against the Mavs during an 87-82 loss on Wednesday.

Don't let the low-scoring line fool you. Gobert is set for a big uptick in production now that it would appear the days of Enes Kanter being his teammate are over. He's one of the league's best shot blockers, is a phenomenal rebounder and he's shooting the ball better from the line, too. He needs to be owned everywhere.
Feb 12 - 1:20 AM

Rudy Gobert double-doubled with 14 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 27 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Gobert has been a top 40-50 play over the last month and at his worst he's been a top 80-100 value if you take his worst segment. Bench him at your own risk and he hasn't even scratched the surface yet.
Feb 7 - 3:16 AM

Rudy Gobert played 25 minutes off the bench and had eight points, six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Wednesday's loss.

Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter aren't going away, making it tough for fantasy owners to start Gobert. The minutes and production were pretty solid tonight, and he's still a nice player to own, even if you can't trust him enough to start him on some nights. If Kanter or Favors ever suffer an injury, Gobert could become a beast.
Feb 5 - 1:38 AM

Rudy Gobert finished Tuesday's road loss with seven points, 15 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks, and he started the second half in place of Enes Kanter.

Gobert single-handedly kept LaMarcus Aldridge in check tonight, holding him to eight points after a 14-point first quarter. Jazz coach Quin Snyder may flip his lineups depending upon matchups going forward, but Gobert's owners should anticipate a terrific post-All-Star stretch regardless of where he begins games.
Feb 4 - 1:14 AM

Rudy Gobert started the second half in place of Enes Kanter in Tuesday's game vs. Portland.

Kanter was seen getting an earful from coach Quin Snyder during the game because the Jazz were getting destroyed in the paint. There is no indication that the switch will be permanent, but we should know more details after the game. Gobert was worth owning in a limited role off the bench, so obviously more minutes would be huge for his value. We will continue to monitor this situation very closely.
Feb 3 - 11:25 PM

Rudy Gobert double-doubled with 10 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks in Friday's win over the Warriors.

Gobert has been a top 125-150 play during his four-game slump and a top 25-35 guy over the last month. He should be in most if not all lineups.
Jan 31 - 2:29 AM

Rudy Gobert played just 10 minutes on Wednesday after getting into some early foul trouble, but still had seven points, three rebounds and a blocked shot.

The 10 minutes are frustrating, but Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter were both great tonight, and Trevor Booker stepped up in Gobert's place when he picked up the fouls. As usual, Gobert is still worth stashing in most leagues, but as long as Kanter and Favors are healthy and playing this well, Gobert is going to be a tough player to put into your lineup.
Jan 29 - 2:54 AM

Rudy Gobert moved back to the bench against the Nets on Saturday with six points, 11 rebounds, two assists and no blocks.

It's his first game of 2015 without a block, but he did attempt his second 3-pointer of his career -- not his shot, obviously. Gobert isn't going to play big minutes, but his block and board rates make him a must-own player. Plus, he's made some strides at the line this season, making 67.3 percent of his 104 attempts this season.
Jan 25 - 12:21 AM

Rudy Gobert started in place of Derrick Favors (personal) and double-doubled against the Bucks on Thursday with 14 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

His numbers don't increase much with Derrick Favors (personal) out, but this was still a nice outing in a win. The Jazz are just a different team when Gobert is on the floor and it's no surprise his minutes per game are growing. He played just 16 minutes per game in November, 22 minutes in December and is at 30 per game in January. He's arguably the best center under the age of 23 and is a must-start player in fantasy leagues.
Jan 23 - 12:54 AM

Rudy Gobert will draw the start in place of Derrick Favors (personal) on Thursday against the Bucks.

Gobert has been fantastic in most fantasy leagues even when he comes off the bench, so his owners should be in for a wild ride on Thursday. Gobert's minutes should continue to trend up as the season progresses, so it only gets better from here on out.
