There are three scoring periods left until default H2H playoffs commence. I hope your teams are surging and not slippin’. ***** A few stream-of-consciousness thoughts on trades this week (not all of them, *cough* Malachi…
March 19, 2019, 12:28 amJosh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns
Josh Jackson scored 18 points on 6-of-13 shooting to go with seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on Monday.
Jackson was able to deliver the counting stats tonight and actually hit his shots at a respectable rate, but he had extra room to operate with Kelly Oubre Jr. (thumb sprain) and Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) out. He's in play as as streamer if those two continue to sit games.
March 16, 2019, 10:11 pmJosh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns
Josh Jackson had a great game in Saturday's OT win over the Pelicans, including hitting the game-tying 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left, posting 19 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal, two blocks and a pair of threes.
Jackson went 6-of-11 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line while committing four turnovers in his 33 minutes, so it was a very strong 8-cat line from a player whose efficiency usually excludes him to punt builds. The Suns were very shorthanded up front tonight and went heavy on the wings, so both Jackson and Mikal Bridges got extra time. Bridges remains the preferred fantasy player of the two and was able to collect 12 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in 40 minutes. Jackson is worth a short-term look while Tyler Johnson is out and Bridges is a must-own player.

Josh Jackson is listed as the probable starter on Friday vs. the Rockets in place of Tyler Johnson (sore right knee).
Jackson is an option as a stream in points leagues or a DFS play as long as Johnson is out of action.

Josh Jackson missed all seven of his shot attempts on Wednesday night, finishing a win over the Knicks with two points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 26 minutes off the bench.
Jackson's playing time is trending down since moving to the bench and his stat set really can't yield any value unless he's getting big minutes. Outside of points leagues or punt-FG% builds in deeper formats, it's safe to move on if you haven't already.

Josh Jackson came off the bench on Monday and scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with four rebounds, an assist, a steal, two blocks and two triples.
Jackson logged 24 minutes off the bench, but we've seen this story before with him. He's not an efficient scorer by any means so we wouldn't expect him to keep this up.
March 1, 2019, 8:19 pmDragan Bender - F - Phoenix Suns
Dragan Bender will start for Josh Jackson on Friday vs. the Pelicans.
Jackson was fined $20,000 for missing a team event on Wednesday so this is likely additional punishment to show the young Jackson the team is serious about rules infractions.

Josh Jackson was fined $20,000 by the Suns for "violation of team rules."
It remains speculation to whether Jackson did not show up to the event or something took place while he was there. Devin Booker (toe) is currently being considered questionable for tonight's game versus the Pelicans, so this would not be a good time for Jackson be in the doghouse as far as minutes.

Josh Jackson picked up some early fouls in Saturday's game and never recovered, scoring six points in just 16 minutes of action.
Jackson started but got a quick hook. We'd rather see Mikal Bridges and Kelly Oubre get his minutes anyway, so it's not a heartbreaker. JJ is fine for points leagues as long as the Suns are a little thinned out but don't cling tight.

Josh Jackson scored 12 points on 5-of-16 shooting with six rebounds, two assists and three steals on Thursday.
Jackson started on Thursday but wasn't able to get much going outside of his three steals. He didn't knock down either of his 3-point attempts and his field goal percentage continues to be a drag. T.J. Warren (ankle) is nearing a return which means Jackson's run is coming to an end.
February 14, 2019, 1:00 amJosh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns
Foul trouble kept Josh Jackson to just 15 minutes on Wednesday night, and he only posted eight points, an assist and a steal.
Jackson also managed to commit five turnovers, somehow. He remains someone to roll with while T.J. Warren is out but is better suited for points leagues and punt builds. Mikal Bridges also battled the whistle and had four fouls in 27 minutes. He remains a must-own player.
February 10, 2019, 9:43 pmJosh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns
Josh Jackson delivered on Sunday against the Kings with 18 points, five boards, three blocks, two triples and an assist.
The three blocks were one off a career-best mark for Jackson. His value is intact while T.J. Warren remains out but he’ll struggle a bit more once the Suns get healthy. That said, the Suns seem to always have someone banged up and Jackson has proven his positional versatility.
February 8, 2019, 7:52 pmDevin Booker - G - Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker (right hamstring soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Warriors.
It looks like Josh Jackson time, while Tyler Johnson should also have a long leash in his first game as a Sun.

February 8, 2019, 7:23 pmDevin Booker - G - Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker is a game-time decision to face the Warriors on Friday.
Booker is listed as questionable but it looks like the decision will be made after pre-game warmups. If Booker can’t go Josh Jackson and maybe new Sun Tyler Johnson will get additional touches. Johnson is also expected to eventually start whether Booker plays or not.

Josh Jackson had himself an impressive two-way performance vs. the Jazz on Wednesday, tallying 27 points (9-of-16 shooting), four rebounds, seven assists, one trey and five steals.
He's been hot as the Suns' go-to guy lately but will likely fade upon the eventual return of T.J. Warren. A sell-high move is in order if you can find the right buyer for your Josh Jax stock.
