Jackson managed 11 points (4-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes in Monday's 104-98 win over the Bulls.
The rookie has scored in double digits in three of the past five games, and he's now shot an impressive 55.3 percent over the entirety of that span. Jackson's shot attempts have fluctuated from a scant four all the way to 13 during those contests, so fantasy expectations have to remain tempered until he's able to level out his usage to a degree. However, if head coach Dave Joerger keeps his stated commitment to providing more opportunity to his younger players, Jackson could start delivering on his first-round pedigree more consistently during the season's stretch run.
Jackson recorded 17 points (8-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in 34 minutes during Friday's 119-104 loss to the Warriors.
Jackson has now put up two double0digit scoring performances in two of his last three games as it appears the Kings are making good on their promise to feature more of their younger players. Jackson still largely flies under the fantasy radar due to lack of production, but the rookie may become a bit more relevant moving ahead, as the Kings will test their young talent frequently as the season comes to a close.
Jackson recorded 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's 113-98 loss to the Spurs.
Jackson is a perfect example of the kind of talent the Kings organization was talking about when they said they wanted their younger players to take a larger role moving forward. This decision has vaulted the rookie into the starting lineup, seemingly for good this time. If Jackson played elsewhere there'd be a lot more buzz around him, but if there's a lowly-owned, high-upside player to single out for the second half of the season, Jackson could be one of the best choices to target. If the Kings keep with a lineup of Fox, Jackson, Bogdanovic, Randolph and Cauley-Stein, Jackson and the Kings could be in for a surprising second half.
Jackson will draw the start over Vince Carter for Thursday's game against the Heat, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Jackson's role has bounced back and forth as of late as coach Dave Joerger continues to change the starting five. Over the past five games, he's averaged 2.8 points and 2.8 rebounds across 20.0 minutes per game.
Jackson was recalled from the G-League on Monday, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.
Jackson has now seen action in six games at the G-League level, averaging 17.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 steals across 34.1 minutes. However, after just a one-game stint, he'll rejoin the Kings ahead of Monday's tilt with the Spurs. Jackson has played a total of 17 minutes over the Kings' last four games, so fantasy owners may want to steer clear until he's able to earn a larger role.
