Jarrett Jack scored 18 points with five rebonds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.
He played 12 minutes on Friday night and he may be ahead of Emmanuel Mudiay for the last two games. It'll be tough to count on Jack unless the Knicks say something definitive on his status. Apr 7 - 9:46 PM

Jarrett Jack may not play in any of New York's remaining regular season games.

The Knicks have 19 games left in the regular season, but playing time for Emmanuel Mudiay, Trey Burke, and Frank Ntilikina has become the focus at the point guard position. At this point, Jack should not be on fantasy rosters regardless of league size.
Mar 3 - 11:08 AM

After picking up a string of DNP-CDs, Jarrett Jack hinted that he may consider pursuing a buyout with the Knicks.

"People have brought it up to me," Jack said of a potential buyout. "I’ve never done it before, to jump from one team in the middle of the season to a playoff squad. I know that’s what other guys have done. To be honest, I don’t really know. Maybe I do need to sit down and look at a list of what my best possible options are. But as of today I’m with the Knicks and want to help in any capacity I can." Jack isn't worth owning anymore, and changing his jersey won't change that fact.

Jarrett Jack was a healthy DNP-CD during Thursday's game in Orlando.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said repeatedly that he planned to use his young guards more after the All-Star break. Jack is 34 years old on a team headed for the draft lottery, so this shouldn't have taken any fantasy owners by surprise. Send him to the waiver wire, if he's not there already.
Feb 22 - 10:04 PM

Jarrett Jack is expected to come off the bench on Thursday vs. the Magic.

Coach Jeff Hornacek didn't reveal his starting lineup yet, but what we do know is that Emmanuel Mudiay is basically a lock to replace Jack -- Mudiay was running the offense for the starters in their last practice and also talked about his new role. With the Knicks hoping to also look at Frank Ntilikina and Trey Burke, there's a good chance that Jack will be a healthy scratch tonight.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said he'll likely make a lineup change after the All-Star break.

"When we bring in another point guard and young kid in Emmanuel, we have to look at things," Hornacek said. "We have a couple more games before the break. Then when we come back, we have a few practices before that first game. If we’re going to do something, that will be the time." Jarrett Jack played just eight minutes in the starting lineup on Sunday and is an obvious candidate to move to the bench. He can be dropped in most leagues, as the Knicks are planning to take a long look at both Frank Ntilikina and Emmanuel Mudiay.

Jarrett Jack started on Sunday but played only eight minutes, scoring two points with two rebounds and no other stats to his credit.

The Knicks continue to roll with their veteran PG, but the clock is ticking with Frank Ntilikina and Emmanuel Mudiay behind him. Jack is an easy cut if there's anyone with moderate upside on the waiver wire.
Feb 11 - 8:18 PM

Jarrett Jack will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

Jack is the starter for now, but things could change after the All-Star break, when New York has more time to practice with their new addition, Emmanuel Mudiay. He's nothing more than a dimes specialist in deep leagues, but he probably won't be worth owning towards the end of the year.
Feb 11 - 4:49 PM

Jarrett Jack scored six points with two rebounds, six assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

He now has three players that can take his playing time with Frank Ntilikina, Trey Burke and Emmanuel Mudiay all on his heels. The Knicks are unofficially out of the playoffs now, so you'd think they'd starting playing the young guys. Jack is more of a drop despite how he's been solid lately.
Feb 8 - 10:52 PM

Jarrett Jack scored 11 points with seven assists, seven rebounds, two steals, one triple and three turnovers in 32 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday.

He was trending down very quickly coming into tonight's game, as he scored six or fewer points in each of his last four outings and hasn't played over 30 minutes since Jan. 14. It makes sense for the Knicks to showcase with him the trade deadline looming because his minimum contract might be attractive to a contender, and we'd expect the Knicks to see what they have in Frank Ntilikina and Trey Burke after the All-Star break anyways. Jack isn't a great add unless you're desperate for a PG.
Feb 2 - 11:46 PM

Jarrett Jack scored six points with two rebounds, five assists and one turnover in 21 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

Trey Burke had another good game, which now gives coach Jeff Hornacek a second option to take minutes from Jack. It feels like it's just a matter of time for Jack to drop below 20 minutes, so his owners may want to consider a proactive drop before things get really bad. Dropping him for Burke makes sense, too.
Jan 27 - 1:51 AM

Jarrett Jack scored six points with two rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block in 26 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

There are a lot of things that can go wrong for Jack now with Frank Ntilikina behind him and Trey Burke playing well tonight. It'll be interesting to see how the minutes break down when Tim Hardaway Jr. returns, but Jack's fantasy owners have probably seen the best out of him so far. He could be a drop candidate very soon or even now if you're the proactive type.
Jan 25 - 11:33 PM

Jarrett Jack dished out 10 assists in Sunday's loss to the Lakers, adding six points, three boards, three turnovers and one steal in 26 minutes of action.

After a hot streak at the beginning of January, Jack has seen a regression to the mean in the scoring department, failing to eclipse the six-point mark over his past four games. He really doesn't offer anything outside of assists, so he can't be viewed as anything more than a dimes-specialist in deep leagues.
Jan 21 - 5:54 PM

Jarrett Jack scored six points with one rebound, six assists and one turnover in 28 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

He did not close this game out with Trey Burke getting the minutes at the one to finish this game. Jack has been way above expectations on the year, but this was his third underwhelming game in a row, averaging 4.0 boards, 2.0 boards and 5.7 dimes in those outings. He's only a low-end fantasy point guard and will probably trend down.
Jan 20 - 1:37 AM

Jarrett Jack scored a season-high 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with four rebounds, eight assists, two 3-pointers, three steals and five turnovers in 37 minutes.

The Pelicans constantly left Jack wide open, and he consistently made them pay for it. He’s been connecting on a ridiculous 61.7 percent of his shots over the past four games to go with averages of 17.0 points, 8.5 assists, 1.0 triple, 1.5 steals and 3.8 turnovers per game. The scoring probably isn’t sustainable, but he’s worth owning in most leagues while he’s playing this well.
