Josh Jackson scored 22 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday. With Devin Booker back, the move to the bench did not hurt Jackson at all as the Suns went very tight on their wing rotation and did go with some small-ball fours. Jackson is one of the hottest rookies on the stat sheet and especially in the scoring column, scoring 20-plus in six of his last nine games. While he does have some issues in percentages, Jackson is shaping up to be a bargain off the wire after his terrible start.

Josh Jackson will move to the bench against the Jazz on Wednesday. The starting lineup will be Elfrid Payton, Devin Booker, T.J. Warren, Dragan Bender and Alex Len today. Jackson has certainly earned a starting spot lately and he should still see minutes in the 20s. He's a hold in all leagues.

Josh Jackson hit 4-of-18 shots for eight points in Monday's blowout loss to Golden State. Other than Elfrid Payton, the rest of the Suns didn't show up for work tonight and were completely outmatched. Jackson couldn't salvage his poor shooting line either, adding four rebounds with one assist in 32 minutes. He's prone to duds, but for the most part Jackson has been really solid since the new year and his fantasy owners should stick with him for the stretch run.

Josh Jackson ended up with 20 points over 39 minutes in Saturday's 123-113 home loss against the Nuggets. Jackson hit 10-of-19 shots from the field, finishing with a team-high in attempts for the second consecutive outing. He also chipped in with seven rebounds, five assists and four blocked shots to fill up the stat sheet. The only blemish was an 0-of-3 night from the free-throw line, but the good news is that he had zero turnovers, too. Over the past seven outings he is averaging 19.0 PPG, 6.9 RPG and 1.6 BPG for his most impressive stretch of the season.

Josh Jackson launched a team-high 17 shot attempts on Wednesday, making six of them to finish with 13 points, six rebounds and two blocks in 33 minutes. Suns coach Jay Triano admitted the obvious, saying the Spurs "walked all over" his team tonight, but added, "I don't think it was a lack of effort. They made shots and we didn't." That can be interpreted as a vote of confidence in guys like Jackson, T.J. Warren, Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss, who played big minutes with even bigger negative net ratings. Efficiency is a big concern for Jackson in category-based leagues, but minutes and usage should be plentiful down the stretch.

Josh Jackson posted his second double-double of the season on Tuesday vs. the Lakers, scoring 16 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one triple in 36 minutes. The rookie played a career-high 36 minutes with Devin Booker (hip, ribs) on the shelf, hitting 7-of-19 shots and 1-of-2 free throws with three turnovers. He's been one of the most improved players since the new year and has been a tremendous pickup in all formats, averaging 20.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.0 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.6 triples in his last five games. He looks poised for a strong finish to the season and the Suns have every reason to keep feeding him minutes.

Jackson registered 23 points (10-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 26 minutes in Sunday's 115-110 loss to the Hornets. Jackson extended his streak of 20-point efforts to four games, a career best. His scoring total Sunday was also a new personal best, and his 71.4 percent success rate was the second highest of his rookie campaign. Head coach Jay Triano appears to have found something with a starting backcourt of Devin Booker and Jackson, so expect the 2017 fourth overall pick to continue seeing plenty of run for the foreseeable future.

Josh Jackson scored a career-high 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting on Sunday, hitting three 3-pointers with five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and five turnovers in 26 minutes. Jackson has now scored at least 20 points in four consecutive games -- the only other rookies to accomplish that in Suns history are Devin Booker, Walter Davis and Alvan Adams. The Suns are already turning him loose and that will only accelerate in the final 28 games. Despite tonight's hot shooting, he's still a more appealing option in points leagues that don't penalize FG percentages (39.5% this season) -- it was just last Sunday that he went 0-of-13 from the field vs. Houston.

Jackson poured in 20 points (7-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT) and added four rebounds and two steals across 29 minutes in Friday's 129-97 loss to the Jazz. The rookie now has three consecutive 20-point efforts, the best offensive stretch of his career thus far. Jackson kept that streak alive Friday despite shooting under 40.0 percent for the second time in the last three contests. The 2017 first-round pick also has a trio of eight-rebound tallies in his last five games, enhancing his surging value across all formats.
