Frank Jackson scored 16 points (no 3s) in a loss to the Blazers on Friday and added three rebounds, an assist and a steal.
Jackson has been averaging 15.1 points and 1.3 threes per game over his last seven but his lack of peripheral stats makes him nothing more than a deep-league stream or plug-and-play for points. He has three games for the next two weeks.

Frank Jackson put up 14 points on 7-for-18 from the field in 34 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Bucks.
Jackson missed all six of his 3-point attempts, and with just one rebound and three assists to round out the line it's very hollow. With increasing speculation that Jrue Holiday and E'Twaun Moore could be done for the year, Jackson makes for a fine add for anyone in need of scoring and threes, but beware that he can give you a lot of empty calories if you need more than a pure specialist.

With Jrue Holiday sidelined due to a lower abdominal strain, Frank Jackson has made the most of his minutes in the last two games for the Pelicans slowly gaining Alvin Gentry’s trust.
In the last two contests with Jrue out, Jackson is averaging 21.5 points and 6.0 rebounds in 34.6 minutes per game, while upping his shooting percentage to 50 percent. And in the last seven games, he is averaging 14.3 points and 4.9 rebounds, shooting 54.5 percent overall and 44.8 from deep while returning borderline top-125 value. The Pelicans selected Jackson with the 31st overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and his debut was delayed because of a foot injury that caused him to miss his rookie season, but the young guard has seen the game slow down for him as he adjusts more and more to the speed of the game. Feel free to pick him up as he has proved to be a reliable source of points and triples while Holiday’s status remains up in the air for the rest of the season.

Frank Jackson dropped 23 points on 10-of-18 from the field on Sunday in Atlanta, adding six rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes of action.
Jackson looks locked into a starting role with Jrue Holiday out for another week or so and is a fine add if you need some scoring punch without much else. He's not for every team build but Jackson does have standard-league appeal.

Frank Jackson started for an injured Jrue Holiday (lower abdominal strain) on Friday and posted 20 points on 9-of-20 shooting with six rebounds and one trey in a team-high 36 minutes.
The line tonight was hollow and while the lack of peripherals is a concern. Still, with Holiday expected to miss 7-10 days with his abdominal strain, it makes sense to add Jackson for the upside that comes with his increased usage in the short term.

Frank Jackson came off the bench for 16 points and seven rebounds on Saturday night against the Nuggets.
Jackson went 7-of-10 from the field and hit a couple threes as well. The Pelicans named him as one of the young players that they'd like to see more of down the stretch, which gives him some deep-league appeal. It won't amount to much unless they really dial back on Jrue Holiday, however.

The Pelicans plan to give increased minutes to their younger players.
With Danny Ferry also saying that Jrue Holiday's minutes are going to be headed in the other direction, that's good news for Frank Jackson. Kenrich Williams, who is already starting, also benefits, while this could also help out Cheick Diallo depending on how the Pels view Jahlil Okafor. Outside of Williams, there's only deep-league impact here.

Frank Jackson started again and scored six points on 3-of-12 shooting with three rebounds and one steal over 26 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Grizzlies.
The Pelicans could get hard to track with all the Anthony Davis drama going on. Obviously when Davis is on the floor it's going to take away a lot of usage from other players, so guys like Jackson and Tim Frazier (five points, three assists, one trey, 21 minutes) could easily dip below the cut line in standard leagues. The goal for both of them, of course, is to get to silly season and hopefully step into late-round roles.

Frank Jackson scored a career-high 25 points on Saturday night, going 10-of-20 from the field in a whopping 42 minutes.
Jackson didn't do much else with two rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer to fill out the box score but certainly delivered for DFS players tonight. He's someone to start looking at more closely with New Orleans apparently ready to fold up shop on the season. Tim Frazier also fits into that category and had nine points, four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and a triple in 27 minutes off the bench tonight. If Elfrid Payton, Jrue Holiday or E'Twaun Moore get dealt this week it could make Jackson and Frazier appealing adds in deeper leagues.

Julius Randle (right ankle sprain), Elfrid Payton (right ankle sprain) and E’Twaun Moore (bruised left quad) will not play on Saturday against the Spurs.
With Anthony Davis on the trade block, the Pelicans won’t be rushing any of their guys back and it’s starting to look as if they might tank down the stretch. Darius Miller, Solomon Hill and Frank Jackson are all DFS options but the Spurs aren’t the best matchup no matter who the Pelicans trot out there.

Frank Jackson started for Elfrid Payton (ankle) on Wednesday and scored nine points with six rebounds on 4-of-9 shooting in a loss to the Nuggets.
He is worth streaming when he starts, but he is outside the top-350 for the season and does not offer much fantasy appeal when the team is fully healthy. He has been outplaying Tim Frazier, who had four points, eight rebounds and eight assists on 1-of-4 shooting in this one, and has seemingly leap-frogged him in the rotation.

Frank Jackson started for Elfrid Payton (right ankle) in Tuesday's win over the Rockets, scoring 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting with seven rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes.
Jackson isn't dead money if he can get the right opening in New Orleans. It will take a combination of trades and injuries to keep him on the standard league radar but you might want to use him in the short-term while the Pelicans are banged up or keep him on a watch list.
January 26, 2019, 8:58 pmFrank Jackson - G - New Orleans Pelicans
Frank Jackson was a sight for sore eyes for the Pelicans in Saturday's 114-126 loss to the Spurs as he posted 15 points (6-of-14 shooting) with three rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer and two steals in 27 minutes.
Jackson has shined in a few games this season but has not had enough of a consistent run to be worth adding outside of ultra-deep leagues. He did fare better than Elfrid Payton tonight with the starter struggling with his shot, going 3-for-13 from the field to finish with six points, three rebounds, five assists and one block.
January 9, 2019, 11:10 pmFrank Jackson - G - New Orleans Pelicans
Frank Jackson set a new career-high in scoring for the second straight game on Wednesday, netting 19 points and four triples in only 19 minutes of action.
Jackson went 4-of-5 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line. It's really not something to chase but he did outplay Tim Frazier tonight, so perhaps we'll see a changing of the (backup) guard soon. Deep leagues only, even then.
