Jarrett Jack cooled off against the 76ers on Wednesday with four points, two rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 19 minutes.
This is his second sub-par game in a row, so it's become a little harder to stay on his bandwagon in a backup role. If you have your eye on someone else, there's no need to be too attached to Jack. Nov 27 - 3:34 AM

Jarrett Jack scored 23 points on 8-of-15 shooting (1-of-2 from deep, 6-of-7 from the line) with two rebounds and five assists in 31 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Jack had played himself into late-round value earlier this week and now he's starting to give himself some padding. He should be owned in all standard 12-team formats at least until he cools off.
Nov 21 - 11:51 PM

Jarrett Jack played 35 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday with 14 points, nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and three turnovers.

That's four games in a row with double-digit scoring since his massive 10-of-10 breakout game on Nov. 13. Jack seems to have carved out minutes in the mid-20s and he's doing a little bit of everything. Fantasy owners in standard leagues can give him a look for some low-end value.
Nov 20 - 12:48 AM

Jarrett Jack scored 15 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 5-of-9 shots (1-of-1 from deep, 4-of-4 from the line) with zero rebounds, four assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

Jack is turning in late-round value and should be owned in most 12-team formats.
Nov 17 - 11:55 PM

Jarrett Jack made all 10 shots from the field and 3-of-4 from the line for 23 points against the Warriors on Thursday, adding three rebounds, three assists, three turnovers and four fouls in 26 minutes.

The revenge game was a common thread tonight, but making all 10 from the field is the ace of spades as far as stat lines go. Jack only played 24.1 minutes per game before tonight and only had 7.0 points per game, so we'd need to see him do it again before signing off on him as a pickup.
Nov 14 - 1:27 AM

Jarrett Jack came off the bench to hit 5-of-8 shots and 4-of-4 free throws for 14 points, five rebounds, four assists and a steal in 24 minutes on Wednesday.

Jack has the potential to put up some numbers if he can get enough minutes, but with Joe Johnson and Deron Williams playing so well, it's going to be a tough road for Jack.
Nov 5 - 11:39 PM

Jarrett Jack scored 17 points off the Brooklyn bench on 7-of-12 shooting while adding two rebounds, two assists, and one 3-pointer.

He looked good tonight and he should have no trouble seeing minutes off of the bench for Brooklyn. Given Deron William's injury history, Jack will be a solid deep league asset and an excellent handcuff or D-Will owners. Don't burn more than a late-round pick on him though.
Oct 19 - 6:01 PM

Jarrett Jack has been playing with the second unit during the Nets' first three days of training camp.

Jack may spend some time alongside Deron Williams during the course of games, but it doesn't appear coach Lionel Hollins is considering him as a starting SG. That likely means that Joe Johnson will play SG with either Andrei Kirilenko, Bojan Bogdanovic or Alan Anderson at SF, but this picture could change overnight as Hollins evaluates his team during the preseason.

Coach Lionel Hollins said he's "sure" he will play Jarrett Jack and Deron Williams together.

This isn't a surprise at all and Jack may get some run as the point guard with Deron off the ball. Jack hasn't been great in the past couple seasons on the whole, but he could get enough run with the Nets to produce low-end value in standard leagues.
Sep 13 - 11:20 AM

Jarrett Jack spoke about his potential role with the Brooklyn Nets during his introductory press conference on Thursday.

"I can relieve Deron of the ball handling responsibilities and create opportunities for myself and my teammates," Jack said. He also spoke on his down year in Cleveland, and the reasons why his production slipped, "I was more of a facilitator than I was accustomed to being in Cleveland." Jack may have some fantasy value as a sixth man or starting shooting guard in a small-ball lineup, but he shouldn't be drafted before the mid rounds in most leagues.
Jul 10 - 2:50 PM

The Nets are on the verge of acquiring Cavaliers guard Jarrett Jack in a three-team trade, with Marcus Thornton and Tyler Zeller going to the Celtics.

The Nets will also acquire F Sergey Karasev from Cleveland, and Boston will pick up a first-round draft pick for helping to facilitate the deal. The Cavs' incentive is ridding themselves of Jack's remaining $12.6 million over two years, giving them the necessary salary-cap space for a max offer to LeBron James. They'll also get a second-round pick from Boston. Jack may start at shooting guard if the Nets opt to use a small lineup again next season, or he may backup both PG and SG as a primary reserve. The 30-year-old veteran is coming off a down season in Cleveland and the change of scenery should do him good.
Jul 9 - 10:27 AM

The Cavaliers reportedly hope to trade Jarrett Jack to the Nets in an effort clear salary-cap space in their pursuit of LeBron James.

Jack will earn a guaranteed $12.6 million over the next two seasons, with a $6.3 million team option in the third and final year of his contract. The Nets may be interested in acquiring him if they can ship Marcus Thornton to another club in the bargain, which is ironic since former coach Jason Kidd was bitter about the Nets' trade for Thornton instead of Jack last season. No trade is imminent but it's worth mentioning that Jack is on the block.
Jul 6 - 10:59 PM

The Nets and Cavs are discussing a trade involving Jarrett Jack for Marcus Thornton.

Jack had an up-and-down year with the Cavs last year, but they are really going to need to get another backup point guard considering how often Kyrie Irving is injured. Jack would become a backup behind another oft-injured point guard in Deron Williams.
Jun 21 - 3:37 PM

Jarrett Jack scored 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting with two threes, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and 5-of-5 hits from the foul line on Friday against the Bucks.

Jack logged 34 minutes off the bench and depending on whether or not Kyrie Irving is truly healthy after returning from a biceps injury, he could see more run than would be expected for an aging player on a team out of contention. Matthew Dellavedova (four points, four assists, 25 minutes) could also see some run, but he's more of a guy to watch than pick up right now.
Apr 12 - 1:48 AM

Jarrett Jack came off the bench Wednesday for 13 points, four rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes.

In a twist off previous strategy, the Cavs chose to start Dion Waiters at shooting guard with Kyrie Irving (biceps) healthy. Jack gave owners plenty of value in this one, but his minute count was aided by a 23-point halftime lead and Irving coasting to just 28 minutes. On most nights, Jack will hover around 25-27 minutes as a third guard. Owners should be able to do better by streaming down the stretch.
