Jaxson Hayes totaled 13 points (5-7FG, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, and one block in 30 minutes in the Pelicans' 127-133 loss to the Magic on Thursday.
Hayes put up a respectable line against the Magic, logging 30 minutes in the process. Throughout the year, he flashed glimpses of how good of a player and fantasy asset he could be. If Hayes can become more consistent in his play and earn more trust from the coaches through disciplined execution, he could become a house-hold name in the years to come.
Jaxson Hayes totaled nine points (4-4 FG, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, one steal, and one block in 22 minutes in the Pelicans' 112-106 loss to the Kings on Tuesday.
Hayes went 100 percent from the floor in the Pelicans' loss to the Kings. With Derrick Favors out, Hayes got the start and put together a decent line. He will look to build on his performance as the team prepares for their match against the Magic. Hayes has the potential to produce starter-level performances; however, his inconsistency limits his fantasy appeal. It also appears that teammate Jahlil Okafor will be getting some run, making it difficult to determine how Hayes will be used in the rotation. Given the uncertainties of his situation, it would be best to fade him at this time.
Jaxson Hayes totaled six points (2-2 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and one steal in ten minutes in the Pelicans' 122-113 loss to the Spurs on Sunday.
Hayes logged ten minutes in the Pelicans' loss to the Spurs. Despite being given tremendously limited playing time, he has still been able to produce some value but not nearly enough to warrant any fantasy consideration at this time.
Jaxson Hayes totaled eight points (2-2 FG, 2-3 FT), and three rebounds in eight minutes in the Pelicans' 118-107 in win over the Wizards on Friday.
Hayes logged eight minutes in the Pelicans’ win over the Wizards, making it his third consecutive game failing to record at least 10 minutes of playing time. He was able to produce a little in that time, however not enough to warrant any confidence that he would get to do more moving forward. He is a natural fade in all formats at this time.
Jaxson Hayes totaled four points (1-2 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and two assists in nine minutes in the Pelicans' 140-125 loss to the Kings on Thursday.
Hayes logged only nine minutes in the Pelican's loss to the Kings, making it his second game straight, failing to record at least 10 minutes of playing time. Even though it seemed early on that he would be the primary backup to Derrick Favors, the team has significantly cut down his time in the rotation. It is unclear how the Pelicans will use him moving forward, thus tremendously capping his fantasy appeal in deep-league and DFS formats. It would be best to keep him on waivers as he is a natural fade at this time.
