Reggie Jackson missed all five of his three-point attempts Monday vs. the Jazz, finishing the game with 11 points (5-of-15 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs), four assists, three rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes.
Jackson has never been the kind of player who puts up quality shooting percentages, as he hasn’t shot 45% or better from the field in a season since the 2012-13 campaign as a member of the Thunder. But he’s had an especially tough time this season, as his 40.1% mark is the second-lowest of his career to date (he shot 32.1% from the field as a rookie). Over his last five games Jackson is shooting 35.4% from the field and 21.4% from beyond the arc, averaging 11.2 points per game. What makes that even worse from a fantasy standpoint is that he’s averaging just 3.2 assists per during this stretch. Jan 15 - 12:57 AM

Reggie Jackson logged just 25 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday with 12 points, two rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers.

He struggled for most of the night, but hit a huge trey with two minutes left to keep it close. Jackson had some foul trouble to cause Jose Calderon to see almost half of the PG minutes at 23. He continues to just cling to near top-150 value in standard leagues, so he's not exactly the strongest hold in shallower leagues.
Jan 5 - 9:34 PM

Reggie Jackson acknowledged that it's been an adjustment playing more off the ball with Blake Griffin in Detroit, but he's growing more comfortable in that role.

"I’m feeling better in the system and the rhythm of shooting shots that I work on. More shots went in [Tuesday] because I wasn’t hesitant," Jackson said. "That’s my biggest thing, trying to pick my spots and just being decisive in what I do. A lot of times, my problems are decisiveness on whether I should make a play or shoot the ball." Jackson has been better from an efficiency standpoint over the past few games, but the complete lack of defensive stats will always limit his upside.

Reggie Jackson was productive against the Grizzlies, scoring 16 points (6-of-11 FGs) with seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks, one steal and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes on Wednesday.

Jackson matched his season-high with seven rebounds and set a new season-high with two blocks. This was arguably his best all-around game of the season, seeing as it was just the third time all year that he's had at least one block and steal in the same game. RJax is a very underwhelming fantasy option these days, but is still worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 3 - 1:09 AM

Reggie Jackson scored 11 points on 5-of-15 shooting Sunday, to go with five rebounds, one 3-pointer, four assists and one turnover in 28 minutes.

Jackson got off to a sluggish start in this one, missing his first four shots and going scoreless through the first frame of action. He also came down awkwardly on Evan Fournier’s foot during the third quarter and appeared to twist his ankle, and while he played through it, we’re going to consider him questionable for Tuesday’s game in Milwaukee with that one being the first of a back-to-back set.

Reggie Jackson went 5-of-12 from the field and 4-of-5 from the stripe on his way to 16 points, two 3-pointers, one rebound, five assists and two turnovers in 31 minutes on Sunday.

Jackson got off to a slow start in this one, scoring just one point (at the line) through the first half of action while missing both of his field goal attempts, but he turned things around after halftime. This is pretty much your prototypical R-Jax stat line, with poor percentages and zero defensive statistics; he is what he is.

Reggie Jackson scored 24 points in 34 minutes on Wednesday, making 7-of-13 FGs and 7-of-9 FTs with six assists, three 3-pointers and two rebounds.

R-Jax fell one point shy of his season high and he's now scored double-digit points in all but two games over the past month. His recent efficiency is worth noticing -- he's a combined 51.7% from the field in his past three games, compared to 39.8% on the season. All but one of his 13 shot attempts tonight came in the paint or from the 3-point line, so hopefully that becomes a trend.

Reggie Jackson scored 12 points (3-of-5 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs) with two rebounds, four assists, one block, and three turnovers in 24 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

Jackson and Jose Calderon split the point guard minutes evenly on Saturday, with Calderon playing most of the minutes down the stretch in the fourth quarter. Jackson is a very underwhelming fantasy option, averaging 12.0 points, 5.0 assists, and 1.6 triples on just 39.6% shooting over his last five games.

Reggie Jackson couldn't get his shot to drop on Sunday, going 1-of-6 from the field on his way to two points, seven assists, two steals and one turnover in 26 minutes.

Jackson had a tough time getting going against Jrue Holiday, attempting just two shots through the first half of action (missing both of them), and he didn’t get his first shot to drop until late in the fourth quarter. He also lost some minutes to Jose Calderon in this one, so it’ll be interesting to see if that starts to develop into a trend. Efficiency issues and a lack of defensive statistics will ensure that Jackson is nothing more than a late-round guy.

Reggie Jackson cooled off vs. the Thunder on Monday with 10 points (4-of-10 FGs), three boards, two assists and one triple in 28 minutes.

Jackson put up 19.8 points and 5.0 assists in Detroit's five-game winning streak, but he'll want this game back against his former team. "I think Reggie physically is getting back to form," coach Dwane Casey said. "You sit out that long [with an ankle injury last season], he didn't really start working in the summer until July and even then it wasn't contact. Training camp was kind of his first contact. It's going to be probably Christmas, first of the year, before he gets back in form." It's likely going to be a rollercoaster of a season for Jackson.

Reggie Jackson made 7-of-12 from the field for 20 points with two rebounds, one assist and six 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

He was on fire to start the game, making all six attempts for the field with five treys for 17 points on 141.7 eFG%. After that, Jackson was fairly quiet with the Pistons running away in this win. Ish Smith's playing time has been cut in non-garbage time, so maybe Jackson can continue to play well after this one and a 21-point Wednesday. His upside still isn't the best.

Reggie Jackson scored 21 points vs. the Knicks on Tuesday with four assists, three rebounds, one steal and two triples in 27 minutes.

R-Jax hit 6-of-12 shots and was a perfect 7-of-7 from the line. He's having a nice little run with 19+ points in three straight games and 6.0 assists, 2.0 triples and 1.3 steals in that span, so he's at least worth deploying while he's hot. We still have him pegged as a late-round PG going forward.

Reggie Jackson was on fire in overtime against the Rockets, finishing with 22 points, four rebounds, six assists, one steal, one turnover and three fouls in 33 minutes.

He scored nine points in the OT frame and was effective in the fourth to get a big comeback win at home. Jackson was also 12-of-14 from the line to put him just two shy of his career-high 14 makes. On the other hand, he was still 5-of-12 from the field and that continues to be the main issue this year.

Reggie Jackson made 5-of-8 from the field for 13 points with three rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Cavs on Monday.

He got himself in foul trouble in the second and had four fouls in his first 14 minutes, but coach Dwane Casey went with Jackson in the fourth even though the Pistons were up big. Jackson also continues to sport a wrap on his back when he's on the bench sometimes, so that's something to watch. On the plus side, Jackson has increased his season FG% in each of his last six games, but that's not a tall order for a guy who came in at 37.2% on the year. He still has a ways to go to be a reliable fantasy starter.

Reggie Jackson scored 13 points with one rebound, six assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday.

The Pistons did sit him out for the vast majority of the second quarter, but there's no word of an injury and he played well in the second half. Jackson has become more of a jump shooter this year, but it hasn't worked out with his lowly 37 FG%.
