Reggie Jackson (Current Rate Of Ownership: 57.0) – Two quiet games from the sophomore shouldn’t¬†dissuade¬†anyone playing in a 12-person or shallower league to give him considerable attention. Other than being an efficient guard who shoots in the high 40s from the field and near the 90s from the stripe, he can score, rebound, assist, steal, and shoot the three with above-average resolve.

This is a player who was averaging about 16 points, four rebounds, 3.2 assists, and a steal before Sunday. As a point guard, one would hope he could assist more and shoot the ball better from deep (28.8% for the season), but it hasn’t been too long since Westbrook returned, and so, there could still be more growth for Jackson in the coming weeks.
