There will rarely be a player to add on a team that has lost 14 of its last 18 games, including five straight, but fantasy baseball owners should still give Hicks a look.

In that 18 game stretch, he is slashing .309/.342/.485 with three home runs, 10 RBI and 12 runs. For the season, Hicks is hitting .277 and has six home runs, 19  RBI and 27 runs.

That means half of Hicks’ home runs and more than half of his RBI this season have come in the last three weeks. His batting average on balls in play in the 18 games is .360, so it might be hard for Hicks to continue this pace, but in deep leagues, he is worth the flier.
