Reggie Jackson finished Sunday's game with 17 points, six assists and three rebounds, making 7-of-15 field goals with three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.
Jackson came in ice-cold from the field over his previous six games, averaging 10.5 points on combined 33.8 percent shooting. He's still at 45.6% on the season, despite that lull, which is easily his most efficient mark since 2012-13 with the Thunder. The only bad news tonight is that he committed six turnovers and was subbed out for Ish Smith over the final 2:40 of a close game. Dec 17 - 7:14 PM

Reggie Jackson finished with just eight points in Friday's win at Indiana thanks to a 3-of-11 shooting night.

Jackson was able to help fantasy owners with three rebounds and three assists while adding a blocked shot, but he also was 0-of-3 from behind the arc while turning it over three times across 24 minutes. He has had a rough time shooting lately, hitting just 12-of-41 (29.2 percent) from the field over his past four outings. He'll look to rebound Sunday against the visiting Magic.
Dec 15 - 10:07 PM

Reggie Jackson missed all nine of his field goals on Sunday, scoring two points on 2-of-2 free throws with three assists, two steals and one rebound in 19 minutes.

Jackson watched from the bench as Detroit made a late run with Ish Smith at the PG spot, and this was just a brutal night against an elite defense for R-Jax. He came in averaging 18.8 points in December and hasn't been held to single-digit points in consecutive games all season, however, and owners shouldn't overreact. He gets a terrific matchup vs. the visiting Nuggets on Tuesday.
Dec 10 - 8:04 PM

Reggie Jackson hit 12-of-21 shots and two 3-pointers for a season-high 27 points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal in 34 minutes of Monday's loss to the Spurs.

He hit just 1-of-4 free throws, but that was a fluke, and Jackson is cruising right now after scoring 25 on Saturday. He's scored at least 20 points in four of his last five games, and while the rest of his numbers could be better (particularly steals), he's playing at a very high level right now.
Dec 4 - 11:40 PM

Reggie Jackson scored a season-high 25 points with three rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

Excluding his 0-of-4 from deep on Friday, Jackson has been solid as a shooter with two triples in five of his last six games. Efficiency has been key for Jackson this year with his 58.7 TS%, which crushes his 51.0 TS% from last year. Believe it or not, he's flirting with 50/40/90 with a 47.8 FG%, a 38.1 3P% and an 88.9 FT% on the season. He should be a mid-round player in standard leagues all year, assuming he stays in that neighborhood and stays healthy.
Dec 2 - 10:49 PM

Reggie Jackson torched Phoenix for 23 points, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in only 22 minutes on Wednesday, hitting 9-of-13 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs.

Stan Van Gundy praised Jackson after Monday's game for adjusting to Detroit's "equal-opportunity" offense this season. "The more he’s attacking when he gets his opportunities, the better off we are," Van Gundy said. "He’s not getting 30 pick-and-rolls like he used to get; he’s made a sacrifice in that regard." He's comfortably in the top-100 for category-based value this year, despite playing a modest 26-28 minutes most nights.
Nov 29 - 10:22 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 20 points on 7-of-10 shooting in Monday's win over Boston.

The Celtics have been one of the toughest matchups for point guards this season and they have the best defensive rating in the NBA, but they had no answer for Jackson, Tobias Harris or Andre Drummond. Jackson hit all four of his free throws with seven assists, one block and two 3-pointers, and now he gets to look forward to a matchup against the Suns on Wednesday -- they have allowed the most fantasy points to PGs this season.
Nov 27 - 10:55 PM

Reggie Jackson took over Sunday's game down the stretch, finishing a 100-97 road win vs. the Wolves with 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting, eight assists, two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

Jackson was benched late on Wednesday because Stan Van Gundy felt his team was "playing better with Ish [Smith]," but he's resumed his usual role in the two games since. He scored eight straight points for the Pistons in crunch time tonight, and owners can rest assured that his 26-30 minute role is secure. Meanwhile, Ish had nine points and five assists in 19 minutes off the bench.
Nov 19 - 9:37 PM

The Pistons' five-game win streak was snapped on Wednesday, with Reggie Jackson contributing just six points on 2-of-7 shooting, two assists and one rebound in 22 minutes.

Jackson was benched for the final 16 minutes tonight. "I thought we were playing better with Ish [Smith], but neither point guard played very well," Stan Van Gundy said. Ish will be an occasional thorn in the side of Jackson's owners all season, but we're not concerned -- tonight's minutes were a season-low and it's just the second time R-Jax has been held to single digits.
Nov 16 - 12:08 AM

Reggie Jackson scored 22 points with three rebounds, six assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

He came through in the clutch with a 3-pointer at the 22-second mark to put the Pistons up seven. Jackson has been outstanding as a shooter this year with his pristine 56.0 eFG% on his 109 jumpers this year, which is way up from 46.4 eFG% last season. He still hasn't been as good in the areas he usually crushes like in pick-and-roll, but Jackson is looking like a bargain in fantasy as long as he stays healthy.
Nov 10 - 10:00 PM

Reggie Jackson made 3-of-10 from the field for 15 points with seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He was red hot to start the season, but he's cooled off lately. Jackson has been solid as a jump shooter this year, but he's not quite up to par off the dribble. Considering how he's been used in pick-and-roll as much as almost anyone the past two years, he'll have to improve there. Jackson is still a mid-round guy and he could stay in that neighborhood if he can stay healthy.
Nov 4 - 10:03 PM

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Suns would prefer for a third team to take on Reggie Jackson in any potential Eric Bledsoe deal with the Pistons.

The Suns already have enough money tied up in Brandon Knight, so they obviously don't want another bad contract. Jackson is healthy and playing well, but his value around the league appears to be very low. Through eight games, he's averaging 16.4 points, 6.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.3 triples on 45.4 percent shooting.
Nov 2 - 1:09 PM

Reggie Jackson hit 8-of-15 shots and a 3-pointer for 18 points, seven boards, five assists and two steals in Tuesday's loss to the Lakers.

Jackson had several trips down the floor where he was the only Piston to touch the ball, but you wouldn't know it from looking at his box score. Despite the constant pressure applied by backup Ish Smith, Jax has scored in double digits in every game this season and is clicking with averages of 16.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 3-pointers on 49 percent shooting over his last five games. If you drafted him with reservations about how he'd play this season, this a so far, so good situation.
Nov 1 - 1:02 AM

Reggie Jackson hit 7-of-17 shots for 16 points, six rebounds and seven assists in Monday's loss to the Sixers.

That's where the good news ends, as he failed to hit a 3-pointer, or record a steal or block in his 31 minutes. Ish Smith came off the bench for four points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in just 17 minutes. Jackson is the starter and should be played with confidence in fantasy right now, but as soon as he goes down, Smith will become a must-own player. Jackson has played at least 26 minutes and scored at least 13 points in each of his four games thus far. He also has a five-steal game to his credit, helping to salvage that category.
Oct 23 - 10:02 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 16 points and dished out a game-high seven assists in 26 minutes on Saturday in a 111-107 win over the Knicks.

Jackson struggled with his shot (4-of-12 from the floor) but knocked down all seven of his free throws. R-Jax is averaging a solid 16.6 points and 6.6 assists per game through the Pistons first three contests. Even more encouraging is the fact that he's been able to avoid any injury setbacks. If he can somehow stay healthy all season, Jackson has a chance to finish the year ranked in the top-100 overall.
