It's Time to Drop Marcus Thornton

Through six games, New Orleans Hornets reserve Marcus Thornton is averaging 7.3 points in 14.8 minutes.

The Breakdown
On a per minute basis, his scoring numbers are good. But in fantasy, minutes per game matter and Thornton is not getting enough time to be a factor at this point. He's currently owned in over 95% of leagues, but he clearly hasn't warranted it. He should be dropped in all standard leagues. There are sure to be better options out there. In deeper formats, you may want to hold onto him a little longer depending on what players are currently available in your free agent pool.
