Timofey Mozgov C DEN 7 Days
Mozgov went scoreless Saturday, missing his only field goal attempt and added just four rebounds and a single assist in 14 minutes.
Mozgov's numbers were well down, mainly due to foul trouble, as the big man racked up five fouls in his limited court time. Prior to Saturday, Mozgov had pulled down double-digit rebounds and despite coach Brian Shaw's inconsistent rotations, should be a nice source of boards and blocks for the duration of the season.

Mozgov scored nine points (4-7 FG, 1-1 FT) and added 10 rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes of action.
This is three solid games in a row for Mozgov as he continues to cement himself in the middle for the Nuggets. Mozgov is currently owned in less than 36 percent of ESPN leagues, but if he continues to play this well his ownership will surely increase.

Mozgov scored 15 points (7-14 FG, 1-1 FT) with 12 rebounds and a block in 49 minutes during Monday's OT loss to the Raptors.
He's now posted double-doubles in back-to-back games, and Mozgov is clearly solidifying his hold on the Nuggets' starting center job.

Mozgov was a solid contributor on Sunday, as he held down the interior defense for his team. He finished with 14 points (5-6 FG, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks, and a steal in 33 minutes.
Mozgov has been a bigger contributor since handling bigger minutes for his team, although he is coming off of two underwhelming performances. He also got into some foul trouble this game, which has been a problem for him throughout the season. If he is able to stay out of foul trouble, and continues to handle around 30 minutes, nights like this could be the norm for the big man.

Mozgov scored 18 points (8-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), with 13 rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 32 minutes during the Nuggets loss to the Suns.
Mozgov is averaging 14 points, 11 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks in 30 minutes over his past three games, and should be owned in the majority of leagues.

Mozgov scored 13 points on Sunday (5-9FG, 3-4 FT) to go along with 13 rebounds.
Mozgov has shown his value as an underrated big man. His rebound totals are right where owners would like a center's rebounding numbers to be, and with Javale McGee out, this could mean even more minutes for Mozgov.

Mozgov started and played 26 minutes Friday but only managed to contribute five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, and three blocks against the Pelicans.
Mozgov is currently the starting center for Denver, although his production is stymied because he's in a time share with JaVale McGee, J.J. Hickson, and Jusuf Nurkic. Out of all these options Mozgov is still the most productive, although his efforts are best suited for deeper leagues.

Mozgov is averaging just 17.5 minutes on the court but has started all four of Denver's games at center.
Despite being Denver's starting center, Mozgov is in a time share with both Jusuf Nurkic and JaVale McGee. All three of these centers are splitting up the frontcourt minutes pretty evenly which curbs all of their viability in standard leagues. Unless Mozgov pulls away from his fellow centers, it's hard to justify his ownership in anything but the deepest of leagues.

Mozgov will compete with JaVale McGee for the starting center spot, the Denver Post's Chris Dempsey reports.
The Nuggets experimented with a number of different lineups last season after McGee went down with a stress fracture in his left tibia. Mozgov made 30 starts at center, while J.J. Hickson started 52 games at both center and power forward. All three players are healthy heading into camp, but coach Brian Shaw indicated that Mozgov and McGee are the primary contenders for the starting gig, and both offer vastly different skill sets. Mozgov is the better offensive threat, whereas McGee is a difference-maker as a shot blocker, when healthy. It's anyone's guess who has the leg up at this point, and the battle will likely wage throughout the preseason.

Timofey Mozgov could end up starting at center to begin the 2014-15 season, according to the Denver Post.
JaVale McGee broke his leg and J.J. Hickson tore his ACL to end their seasons, but Mozgov may have earned his way into the first unit even when those two come back healthy. At best, he'll likely be in a timeshare, so he'll only be worthy of a pick in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.
