Reggie Jackson played just 15 minutes in Friday's blowout win, scoring nine points on 2-of-8 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, two assists and one steal.
Jackson's minutes have been in the spotlight as Scott Brooks and the Thunder simultaneously look to send a message to both Jackson and prospective buyers in free agency. He has enough value as a stash and also on a standalone basis when he goes off to support being owned in all formats. Dec 27 - 3:26 AM

Reggie Jackson contributed 21 points, nine rebounds, four assists and one steal in 37 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, but it wasn't enough to avoid an OT loss to Portland.

His owners should revel in this production while it lasts, as his minutes and usage rates were way down when both Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant (ankle) were healthy. Jackson made 8-of-17 FGs with one 3-pointer on Tuesday, rounding out a stellar fantasy line.
Dec 23 - 11:37 PM

Reggie Jackson busted out of his slump on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting (3-of-5 3PTs, 4-of-4 FTs) with three rebounds, five assists and one block in 36 minutes off the bench.

Yes, Kevin Durant was out and yes this came against the Lakers, but it's probably just good for Jackson to see the ball go through the hoop. It sure seems like the Thunder are going out of their way to let Jackson know what the pecking order is in OKC now that the guys are back, but tonight's output is a reminder of both his short-term value and long-term value in the event one of the Thunder's big guns gets hurt again.
Dec 20 - 2:28 AM

Reggie Jackson saw just 20 minutes of action on Tuesday, finishing with eight points, three assists, two boards and one steal.

This was a tough blow for Jackson, as he expectedly hasn't been able to retain his value since the return of Russell Westbrook. Jackson still has too much upside to not be owned in standard leagues, and owners will just have to be patient with him until he adjusts better to his role off of the bench. Expect him to bounce back vs. the Warriors on Thursday.
Dec 17 - 1:28 AM

Reggie Jackson came off OKC's bench on Tuesday for 18 points, seven rebounds, three assists and only one turnover, making 8-of-14 shots with two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He was subbed in later than usual tonight but quickly made up for lost time, and wound up with his best overall line since Russell Westbrook's return five games ago. Jackson is averaging 30.0 minutes per game as a reserve, which is more than enough to sustain a minimum of top-100 fantasy value.
Dec 9 - 11:30 PM

Reggie Jackson was held to a season-low four points on 2-of-9 shooting off the Thunder bench on Sunday, adding five rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 28 minutes.

Jackson's role has predictably withered with Russell Westbrook dominating minutes since his return four games ago. Decreased minutes and shots have reduced Jackson to a low-end value in 12-team leagues over the past week, but he has enough upside to hang onto him as he re-adjusts to being a reserve.
Dec 7 - 9:12 PM

Reggie Jackson came off OKC's bench for 17 points in New Orleans on Tuesday, making 7-of-14 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with two boards, four assists, one steal and one turnover in 34 minutes.

Jackson logged 29 minutes in Russell Westbrook's return on Friday and should maintain a 30-35 minute role even with the Thunder at full strength. A dip in scoring and assists should be offset by lower turnovers and improved FG percentages, and he should still return top-80 value the rest of the way.
Dec 2 - 11:33 PM

Reggie Jackson returned to the second unit in Friday's blowout win, scoring 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting (no threes) with six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

This could be a familiar line for the rest of the season and owners should expect mid-to-late round value once Kevin Durant returns.
Nov 29 - 1:45 AM

Coach Scott Brooks said Reggie Jackson and Russell Westbrook will get "a lot of minutes" together.

Westbrook will likely see minutes around 30, so Jackson should get a high usage in his 18 minutes or so in the second unit. Plus, it looks like Jackson will get around 10-15 minutes next to Westbrook, which puts him in the 30-minute neighborhood as well. With Kevin Durant (foot) still out, Jackson should still be a must-start guy in most formats.
Nov 28 - 2:02 PM

Reggie Jackson will come off the bench on Friday with Russell Westbrook back in the starting lineup.

Jackson should still get plenty of minutes and be productive, but the days of him being a No. 1 starting fantasy point guard are probably over.
Nov 28 - 12:32 PM

The Thunder snapped their six-game losing streak on Wednesday, led by Reggie Jackson's 22 points on 10-of-18 shooting, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, eight assists and one steal.

He turned the ball over five times, as usual, but at least he made more than half his shots tonight. Backup PG Sebastian Telfair was waived on Wednesday which suggests that Russell Westbrook (hand) might return as soon as Friday's game. Jackson will inevitably lose some minutes and offensive firepower, but he's still a must-own fantasy player even if he shifts to a bench role.
Nov 27 - 12:01 AM

Reggie Jackson fell just two assists shy of a triple-double vs. the Warriors on Sunday, scoring 22 points with 11 rebounds and eight assists in 36 minutes of action.

He shot just 10-of-26 from the field and his FG percentage continues to be a minor drag, but he compensated with one 3-pointer, one steal and a relatively stingy two turnovers. He may shift to a bench role upon Russell Westbrook's return but he's played too well to fall much below 32 minutes per game, even when OKC is at full strength.
Nov 23 - 10:05 PM

Reggie Jackson had three rebounds and handed out seven assists vs. the Jazz on Tuesday, but he scored just 10 points on 4-of-13 FGs and 1-of-1 FTs.

Trey Burke isn't known for his lock-down defense but he gave Jackson fits tonight, and OKC's entire offense was out of synch as they finished a combined 30-of-84 from the field (35.7 percent). R-Jax has been a second-round fantasy value this year, if you ignore his 3.6 turnovers per game, but he'll inevitably slide down closer to the 60-80 range once Russell Westbrook returns.
Nov 18 - 11:36 PM

James Harden thinks Reggie Jackson deserves his payday.

Harden didn't specify it should be with the Thunder. "He has to get the money that he’s earned and that he’s worked his whole life for," he said. "It’s the nature of the business. It’s going to happen every single year and it’s going to continue to happen." Jackson has put himself in a position to earn a big contract during the offseason and it will be interesting to see how the Thunder handle the situation that will unfold.

Reggie Jackson made only 3-of-11 FGs vs. Aaron Brooks and the Rockets on Sunday, but he added 9-of-9 FTs to finish with 15 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and four turnovers.

The Thunder scored a total of 65 points tonight and they're dead last in fastbreak points per game (5.4), which is understandable given their unfathomable injury problems to begin the season. Jackson's 11 boards were one shy of his career high and he's doing everything he can to keep OKC afloat until Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant return, at which point his lofty playing time and fantasy value will inevitably decline.
