Writer's Analysis: Jackson scored 17.0 points in the Grizzlies loss to the Celtics, making this his second consecutive game with at least 15.0 points. Although his scoring is up, his production across other categories is down from last year. If history indicates future performance, Jackson's production should be on the upswing towards the tail-end of December. He remains a must-start multi-categorical contributor in most season-long leagues, but it may take some time for him to get into the elite form we know he can tap into when he is locked in. His upside could keep him an intriguing play in daily formats, but his price point may be enough to dissuade you from rostering this league talent. Jackson has a usage rate of 26.6 percent, a plus-minus of -4.5, and is averaging 30.7 minutes, 19.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.5 steals, and 1.6 blocks per game while shooting 43.2 percent from the floor and 31.3 percent from beyond the arc.
