Jaxson Hayes posts 23-12 double-double in win

Jaxson Hayes scored 23 points (10-14 FG, 2-3 3PT, 1-3 FT), along with 12 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 steal in the Pelicans win over Sacramento.

Fantasy Impact

Jaxson Hayes posted his second straight double-double on Tuesday, this one coming with a far more impressive 23-12 stat line compared to the 12-10 he posted on April 3rd. That said, it’s difficult to trust Jaxson Hayes, who before the back-to-back double-doubles, had been held to single-digits in both points and rebounds in five of his last six games.

Jaxson Hayes posts double-double in loss

Jaxson Hayes recorded 12 points (4-12 FG, 1-2 3PT, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 22 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact

Hayes recorded his third double-double on the season in Sunday's blowout loss. The young center needs to find more consistency in minutes, points, and rebounds before his fantasy stock can considerably increase. While the talent is definitely there, the Texas product still needs to develop more before he can become an offensive weapon for the Pelicans. The 21-year-old will look to stay productive when the Pelicans visit the Kings on Tuesday.

Jaxon Hayes scores nine points in loss to the Hornets

Jaxon Hayes totaled nine points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3PT, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, and one block in the Pelicans’ 106-103 loss to the Hornets on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Hayes scored nine points in the Pelicans’ loss to the Hornets’ having an all-around quiet night. On a night in which he saw nearly 40.0 minutes of playing time he certainly left a lot to be desired. His low floor and lack of consistency in producing at a high level could make him high-risk asset to the roster any given night.

Jaxson Hayes effective in blowout win Friday

Jaxson Hayes dropped an efficient 16 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT, 3-4 3PT) and grabbed eight rebounds in Friday night's 124-91 blowout win over the San Antonio Spurs.

Fantasy Impact

Hayes has been a hit-or-miss option for the Pelicans this season, but when he hits, the team is considerably better. He isn't a consistently-good fantasy option, but he can serve as a plug-and-play flex option on fantasy rosters.

Jaxson Hayes spark plug performance in blowout win

Jaxson Hayes compiled 21 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3PT, 7-9 FT), six rebounds, two steals, and one block in 27 minutes of action in Sunday's win over the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact

Hayes did it all on Sunday night from a big swat to a pair of silky shots from deep to a nasty between-the-legs dunk on a fast-break. Since Feb. 1, the athletic center is averaging 25.4 minutes per game which is significantly more than his 18.1 on the season. The 21-year-old will look to continue to play great basketball in a tough matchup when the Pelicans host the Suns on Tuesday.
