2019 Fantasy Outlook
Jackson's rookie season was cut short due to injury, but he was impressive in 58 appearances. The Michigan State product averaged 13.8 points, 4.7 boards and 2.3 combined blocks/steals across 26.1 minutes per contest en route to an All-Rookie First Team selection. Those averages increased substantially in 20 games with at least 30 minutes, going for 18.7 points, 6.0 boards and 3.0 combined steals/blocks. The big man showed promise as a three-point shooter, canning 1.0 triples per game at a serviceable 35.9 percent clip. Jackson has enormous upside as the starting power forward on a rebuilding team, and he's likely to see an increase in playing time in his sophomore campaign. Jackson is an excellent two-way player who can provide valuable fantasy production on both ends of the court. The 19-year-old projects as an early-to-mid round pick across most season-long formats and even more valuable as a dynasty league prospect. Read Past Outlooks

Near double-double in win

October 8, 2019
Jackson registered 18 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-9 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and three blocks across 28 minutes during the Grizzlies' 108-94 preseason win over New Zealand on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Jackson put together an encouraging performance for the second time in as many preseason contests, with the 2018 fourth overall pick having contributed 19-point, eight rebound effort in the exhibition opener Sunday. Jackson averaged a solid 13.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.4 blocks across 26.1 minutes during 58 games in his rookie season, and he'll look to put together an even better sophomore campaign while reprising his successful frontcourt chemistry with veteran center Jonas Valanciunas (foot).

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Jackson was nabbed by the Grizzlies with the fourth overall pick after just one season at Michigan State. The 18-year-old averaged 10.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 3.0 blocks while draining 39.6 percent of his 2.7 three-point attempts per contest. At 6-foot-11, Jackson certainly has the size to fill in at the five if necessary, although he's currently projected to compete with JaMychal Green for the starting power forward role. Given his impressive two-way skills and Memphis' overall lack of depth, Jackson could play a significant role right from the onset of his first pro campaign, especially if the returning Mike Conley is subject to any early-season limitations that create even more of a need for offensive contributions. Moreover, taking Marc Gasol's own impressive floor-spacing skills into account, Jackson stands to benefit from plenty of one-on-one matchups that his skill set should allow him to capitalize on.
