Core and hip strength. i've done them in the past - probably need to throw them in this time around.

lower back and hip/quad strength like Ben said. I like them every once in awhile.

I used to do them, but I prefer front squats. Zercher deadlifts are good for building strength off the floor, and the zercher lift (conventional deadlift, slide the bar into the elbows, then zercher squat) is a fun lift to do once in a while.
