J.J. Hickson's Fantasy Value Falling

Cleveland Cavaliers power forward J.J. Hickson has seen his value take a hit of late. He has failed to score in double figures in the team's last six games. With his low scoring output and modest rebounding totals, Hickson is just not worth rostering in standard leagues.

The Breakdown
Head coach Byron Scott has given the bulk of the playing time back to the veteran Antawn Jamison. Although Jamison is not putting up the numbers we expected out of him entering the season, he is the better option right now. He's getting the bulk of the playing time and putting up the better lines.

J.J. Hickson continues to start, but he's playing right around 20 minutes a night and he's just not producing enough to help most fantasy squads. Owners in standard leagues will want to start looking for an upgrade via the free agent pool. Hickson is still owned in over 70% of leagues, but that's still far too many teams hanging on to him.
