Reggie Jackson led the Pistons to a four-point win vs. the Raptors on Tuesday, scoring 28 points (10-of-18 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs) with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, nine assists, one steal and zero turnovers.

R-Jax has a stellar 61.6 percent assist ratio since the All-Star break, trailing only Russell Westbrook (63.3 percent) during that span. He's also scoring nearly a quarter of Detroit's points while on the court, despite shooting just 38.9 percent from the field, and his double-digit assists per game have staked him to top-75 value in 8-cat leagues. Congrats to all those owners who held onto him through the trade deadline.

Reggie Jackson fell just one rebound shy of a triple-double during Sunday's overtime win over the Celtics, scoring 17 points with 11 assists, nine boards and one block in 37 minutes.

It's fair to say that Jackson is starting to fit in with Detroit and his play has been outstanding this week, averaging 18.3 points, 13.0 assists, 6.3 boards and 1.0 3-pointer over his last four games. Turnovers are still an issue and he had four of those tonight, but his value has increased dramatically since leaving the Thunder and he should be an elite play down the stretch. The Pistons will have an interesting decision to make this summer regarding Jackson's restricted free agency.
Mar 22 - 9:22 PM

Reggie Jackson made 9-of-16 from the field for 22 points with three rebounds, 11 assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and one turnover.

That's two big games in his last three with his 23-point, 20-dime line coming on Tuesday against the Grizzlies. Jackson's time in Detroit has helped him be the second-best player for time of possession of the ball per game (John Wall is first). After a rocky start, he's ready to light it up down the stretch.
Mar 21 - 10:57 PM

The Detroit Pistons have prioritized getting Reggie Jackson settled as one of their rest-of-season goals.

While Brandon Jennings is due back for next season, the Pistons want to get Jackson comfortable in his new surroundings as they'll attempt to keep the restricted free agent around for the long-term after this season. "There's a lot going on in a new situation – new teammates to learn, new system to learn," Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy said. "And then all the other stuff, the emotions of the situation and wanting to prove yourself as a starter and the whole thing. There's just a ton of stuff going on." Jackson has had an uneven tenure with the Pistons, but he has the ability to go off on any given night and deserves to be a nightly fantasy start.

Reggie Jackson posted arguably the worst triple-double of the season against the 76ers on Wednesday, scoring 11 points with 11 rebounds, 10 assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

He made 4-of-17 from the field, turned the ball over five times and made Ish Smith look really good tonight. Jackson had a 20-20 game on Tuesday and seems to be a bigger part of the offense with Greg Monroe out. Jackson has been a major letdown since he was shipped to Detroit and he'll look to put up a better game on Saturday against the Bulls.
Mar 18 - 9:36 PM

Reggie Jackson helped Detroit snap their 10-game losing streak with a career-high 20 assists, 23 points on 10-of-18 shooting, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal.

R-Jax is finally getting comfortable in Detroit. He was averaging 9.3 points on 17-of-48 shooting (35.4 percent) over his previous four games and poor percentages have taken a big chunk out of his appeal since joining the Pistons on Feb. 19. Detroit is nearly out of the playoff picture after going 2-10 with Jackson in the lineup, but at least this big performance leaves his owners optimistic for the season's final weeks.
Mar 17 - 10:20 PM

Reggie Jackson was benched in favor of Spencer Dinwiddie down the stretch in Saturday's loss to the Jazz, finishing with 10 boards, four boards and two 3-pointers.

It was a dreadful night for Jackson, and to make matters worse he failed to record a single assist and turned the ball over five times. It will be interesting to see how head coach Stan Van Gundy handles the point guard situation moving forward, and with the Pistons falling out of the playoff hunt, it wouldn't be surprising to see Spencer Dinwiddie get more opportunities. For now, Jackson's owners will simply have to hope he bounces back vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday.
Mar 14 - 11:45 PM

Reggie Jackson, who had just two points and three assists on Tuesday, bounced back with 14 points and nine assists on 7-of-115 shooting in 31 minutes on Wednesday.

That's more like it. Jackson was terrible in his previous game, but was back to his old self tonight. Keep rolling with him until further notice.
Mar 12 - 1:54 AM

Reggie Jackson sputtered out in 22 foul-plagued minutes vs. the Lakers, scoring just two points on 1-of-9 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and no other stats to his credit.

The Lakers are giving up 47.1 points to opposing backcourts this season, the most of any team, and only the Knicks allow opposing guards to shoot better than L.A. (45.1 percent). It's a delectable matchup for fantasy purposes, which makes Jackson's performance even more galling. He'll need to have a short memory vs. the Warriors on Wednesday, and fantasy owners can safely rely on R-Jax for a bounce-back effort.
Mar 11 - 1:12 AM

Reggie Jackson got hot early vs. the Hornets on Sunday, finishing a tough home loss with 25 points on 9-of-21 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds and seven assists.

R-Jax was shooting just 36.6 percent since joining the Pistons, taking a big chunk out of his otherwise excellent fantasy production, so this is a welcome sight for fantasy owners. In six games for Detroit he has a gaudy usage rate of 28.5 percent, with an equally impressive assist rate of 39.2 percent, and his rest-of-season outlook is as promising as they come.
Mar 8 - 9:02 PM

Reggie Jackson played well against the Pelicans on Wednesday during an 88-85 loss with 14 points, five rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and four turnovers in 33 minutes.

He made 7-of-16 from the field, which is a huge improvement from making just 33.3 percent from the field in his previous four. Jackson's numbers are still pretty good considering he can't make shots right now, averaging 15.6 points, 5.2 boards 7.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 treys. He's a must-start player.
Mar 5 - 2:07 AM

Coach Stan Van Gundy said Reggie Jackson is "off his game" right now.

"He's pressing too hard, trying to do too much, sort of thinking too much," Van Gundy said. "He's got to relax and play according to what the defense does." Jackson has really struggled scoring the ball, making just 33.3 percent from the field with the Pistons. Specifically, he's been awful outside of the paint, making just 18.5 percent of those shots with the Pistons. While he was benched on Saturday, Jackson is still dominating the ball and should get it going very soon.
Mar 4 - 2:30 PM

Reggie Jackson struggled yet again on Saturday against the Wizards, making 4-of-12 from the field for nine points with three rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

It's not going well for him and he was benched tonight because Spencer Dinwiddie outplayed him big time. Interestingly, Jackson had a time of possession per game of 9.6 minutes in his first three games with Detroit, which is actually more John Wall's league-leading 8.2. However, Jackson can't make shots and he's really only had two effective halves in eight tries, making just 33.3 percent from the field with the Pistons. Still, his upside is too high to panic. Try to buy low if you can.
Feb 28 - 9:29 PM

Reggie Jackson made 5-of-24 from the field against the Knicks on Friday for 16 points with five rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer.

This kind of line against the Knicks is inexcusable. Jackson hasn't quite hit his stride with his new team and is making just 33.3 percent from the field in his last three. Jackson is still a huge part of the offense and he's a good bet for several 20-7-7 kind of lines this season.
