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. Jan 14 - 6:50 PM

Jarrett Jack had another strong game on Friday vs. the Wolves, scoring 18 points with eight assists, one rebound, one steal and two triples in 33 minutes.

Ever since coach Jeff Hornacek said he was considering starting Frank Ntilikina, Jack has turned things up a notch. He's coming off a triple-double with 16 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals, and he's averaging 15.3 points, 8.6 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.7 triples over his last three games. His job is safe for now, so he belongs in fantasy lineups.

Jarrett Jack posted the second triple-double of his career during a 122-119 double-overtime loss to the Bulls on Wednesday, scoring 16 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and five turnovers in 40 minutes.

It's the first triple-double for the Knicks since Carmelo Anthony posted one in 2012. Jack was part of the biggest play of the game as he set up Kristaps Porzingis off a cut to get a dunk at the buzzer to send this game to overtime (video in link below). Jack's minutes continue to trend up and perhaps he heard the whispers of coach Jeff Hornacek looking at starting Frank Ntilikina. Jack isn't exactly the sexiest fantasy asset in fantasy leagues, but he's a fine player to own until further notice.
Jan 10 - 10:49 PM

Jarrett Jack had 12 points, a game-high eight assists, three rebounds and one block in 25 minutes on Sunday, while making 5-of-8 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws.

In case you missed it, Jack's contract will be guaranteed for the rest of the season. Ramon Sessions has fallen out of the rotation, so Jack continues to start and play minutes in the mid- to high-20s while Frank Ntilikina develops in a backup role. New York could turn Ntilikina loose eventually, though, so we don't recommend relying on Jack for rest-of-season value.
Jan 7 - 10:26 PM

The Knicks will guarantee Jarrett Jack's contract for the remainder of the season.

Jack leapfrogged Ramon Sessions early in the season and has started 36 games for the Knicks with 7.2 points and 5.9 assists per game. He does have some low-end fantasy value, but he's expected to head to the bench as soon as rookie Frank Ntilikina is ready to take over as the starter.
Jan 7 - 10:27 AM

Jarrett Jack hit 3-of-10 shots for 10 points, four rebounds, five assists and two steals in 33 minutes of Tuesday's 100-91 loss to the Spurs.

Frank Ntilikina, who had been coming on and could replace Jack as the starter at some point, wasn't aggressive tonight and was benched by Jeff Hornacek after failing to even flirt with getting into the paint. Ntilikina played just 16 minutes, but could bounce back in his next one, and could eventually replace Jack. But for now, Jack's the better play, averaging 11 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 0.8 steals over his last four, although he's not hitting threes lately.
Jan 2 - 10:17 PM

Jarrett Jack scored 15 points with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

The Knicks are getting closer to starting Frank Ntilikina, which means Jack's playing time is probably going to be dropping. He's been a fine hold in deeper leagues and even standard-ish formats for his position scarcity.

Jarrett Jack missed all five of his shots during Monday's loss to the 76ers, finishing with seven assists, two rebounds and two steals through 21 scoreless minutes.

Jack rarely brings anything to the stat sheet outside of the assists category, so while he has some low-end appeal as a dimes specialist in deep leagues, he's not worth owning in most 12-team formats. Frank Ntilikina recorded four points, three assists, two rebounds and one turnover in 27 minutes off the bench, and he figures to overtake Jack for the starting PG spot at some point this season.

Jarrett Jack helped the Knicks hold on for a 111-107 win vs. Atlanta on Sunday, scoring a season-high 19 points with four rebounds, three assists and three turnovers in 26 minutes.

Jack hit 7-of-11 FGs and 5-of-7 FTs, and he closed out the game in a small lineup alongside Frank Ntilikina, Ron Baker, Lance Thomas and Kristaps Porzingis. The veteran hasn't blocked a shot all season and he's averaging 5.9 points on 42.1 percent shooting, which are just a few of the reasons to continue avoiding him.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 11:36:00 PM

Jarrett Jack double-doubled on Wednesday with 10 points, 10 assists and six rebounds, making 3-of-5 field goals and 4-of-6 free throws in 27 minutes.

The assists are nice, but that's been the story with Jack all season -- 6.0 dimes per game, and little else. You'd have to be very desperate for assists to own him outside of the deepest leagues.
Wed, Dec 6, 2017 11:33:00 PM

Jarrett Jack handed out seven assists during Sunday's loss to the Magic, to go with nine points, four rebounds and three turnovers in 28 minutes.

Jack is in the top-20 in assists per game this season, dishing out 6.0 assists per contest, but he rarely brings much else to the box score. He's worth owning as a dimes specialist in deep leagues, but that's pretty much the extent of his value and he'll more than likely concede the starting spot to Frank Ntilikina towards the second half of the year.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 07:09:00 PM

Jarrett Jack matched his career-high 14 dimes against the Hawks on Friday, adding 10 points, four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

Revenge game for waiving him last preseason? Jack has picked up his playing time lately as Frank Ntilikina has lost some playing time. The veteran point guard has been decent in dimes with 7.0 per game over his last five, but he's not really doing much else.
Fri, Nov 24, 2017 10:53:00 PM

Jarrett Jack started again on Wednesday but hit just 2-of-9 shots for four points, two rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes of an ugly loss to the Rockets.

Frank Ntilikina played 26 minutes off the bench and hit just 1-of-7 shots, but also had two points, eight assists and five steals. The timeshare is on and Jack's going to have to be better than this if he wants to keep the starting job.

Making his second straight start at PG, Jarrett Jack handed out nine assists with three rebounds, one steal and one block, while scoring two points on 1-of-8 shooting.

"We always knew we needed veterans to help support Frank [Ntilikina]," said Knicks president Steve Mills. "Was that going to be Ramon as starter? Jarrett as starter? ... They both mentor Frank in different ways." Jack has proven to be the better on-court option, as New York has posted consecutive wins with him running the show. He doesn't score much and will eventually cede the PG job to Ntilikina, however, and he's a very low-upside fantasy option.

Jarrett Jack made his first start of the season with eight points, seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes agains the Nets on Friday.

A positive person could look at this outing and see how the Knicks won and Jack came away with a solid stat line. On the downside, Frank Ntilikina played better than expected, so he could be on the upswing. Still, Jack should have a chance for minutes in the mid 20s for the next handful of games, so he's worth a look in deeper leagues.
