2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hayes' freshman season was cut short by what looked like a serious knee injury, but an MRI ultimately revealed no structural damage, and he was able to participate in summer league. Hayes, who averaged 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game at Texas, is a terrific frontcourt athlete and shot-blocker, but there are still plenty of questions surrounding his abilities on offense. That said, he was surprisingly effective on offense in summer league, averaging 16.3 points on 10.8 shots. He also added 7.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks across 24.3 minutes in four contests. While the Pelicans showed plenty of confidence in Hayes by drafting him eighth overall, the 19-year-old has competition for playing time. Derrick Favors, Jahlil Okafor and Zion Williamson are all candidates to see action at center, which could cut into Hayes' workload. It might be tough for the rookie to carve out a standard-league fantasy role right out of the gate, but it's possible he'll make for a streaming option for blocks and field-goal percentage.

Hayes registered 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist and one block across 24 minutes during the Pelicans' 99-78 win over the Cavaliers in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.
Hayes was outdone by fellow first-round pick Nickeil Alexander-Walker, but he turned in a solid showing in his own right. The eight overall pick is averaging 20.5 points (on 70.0 percent shooting), 5.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks over 22.0 minutes in two Las Vegas games.
