Jordan Hicks's Rest of Season Value is Surprising


As of 6/23, Jordan Hicks is the #14 ranked reliever based on ownership percentage (85%). With a lower market rank than projection rank, consider Jordan Hicks to be undervalued. His fantasy reliever projection rank is #10. Even as an established quality fantasy option, if he lives up to projections he is still undervalued and there could be an opportunity to buy 'low'. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better reliever option available. He is projected for 137 fantasy points in 38 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#14) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Jordan Hicks behind Smith and above Neris but the projections rank Jordan Hicks over Smith.
