Jones finished with 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and three steals in 37 minutes during Thursday's 102-91 win over the Knicks. The rookie second-round pick continues to be subtle revelation for the Pelicans. He's a well-rounded contributor, shooting 50.2 percent from the field and 40.0 percent from three, while looking 1.5 steals per game with high defensive grades. Despite infrequently hitting the 20-point mark, Jones is a high-floor asset who can be rostered in standard leagues.
Jones registered 14 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and three steals in 32 minutes during Thursday's 113-89 win over Los Angeles. Jones racked up another three steals in the victory, a welcome sight for anyone invested in the young upstart. While the defensive contributions have been relatively constant thus far, it has been his offensive game that has progressed during the month of January. He has now scored in double-digits in eight of his past nine games, simply reinforcing him as a must-roster player in all 12-team leagues.
Jones finished with 13 points (4-8 FG, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists and five steals across 37 minutes during Thursday's 101-96 victory over Golden State. Jones impressed yet again in the victory, continuing on with his unexpected rookie breakout. Obvious his overall fantasy value is heavily reliant on his defensive output, something that was on full display. However, his offensive game is beginning to take shape, to the point where you can almost rely on him for double-digit scoring on most nights. Given the trajectory of the Pelicans, it is reasonably safe to assume he should have a substantial role the rest of the way.
Jones posted 14 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks across 35 minutes in Saturday's 136-113 loss to the Bucks. Even though Brandon Ingram (Achilles) was out for a second straight game, Jones couldn't replicate the career-high 26-point outburst he delivered in the previous contest, but the rookie delivered a strong all-around fantasy line thanks largely to his defensive production. Over his last 10 games, Jones is averaging 12.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.6 blocks, 1.0 three-pointers and 0.9 steals in 32.2 minutes while shooting 50.5 percent from the field and 80 percent from the free-throw line. Jones looks like he might be a solid fantasy option in 12-team leagues at least until the Pelicans get Zion Williamson (foot) and some of their other key players back.
Jones produced 26 points (10-18 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks across 36 minutes during Tuesday's 108-104 win over Cleveland. Jones erupted for a career-high 26 points in the loss, shouldering a lot of the offensive responsibility. With the Pelicans well down on troops, Jones was the unlikely beneficiary. He has been a solid source of defensive production all season long but as long as the current absences stick around, he is probably worth streaming in across most 12-team leagues.
