Josh Jackson was ejected from Thursday's game, ending his night with seven points, two rebounds, a steal and a triple in 19 minutes.
Jackson and the Suns were on the wrong end of some tough non-calls in this one but he went back to the well too often for the refs' liking. He remains a volume-dependent fantasy player who's not going to be worth your time while Devin Booker is healthy.

Josh Jackson returned to the bench with Devin Booker (back) in the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Pacers, scoring eight points on 3-of-7 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, three assists and one block in 19 minutes.
Jackson struggles to stay in the top-300 when the Suns are at full strength and is only worth dealing with if you're in points leagues or you can punt percentages.

Josh Jackson started for Devin Booker (back spasms) again on Saturday night and finished with 15 points on 6-of-18 from the field.
Jackson added four rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block. He's going to tank your percentages but if you're already up a creek there or in a points league then he's a decent option. It looks like he's at least pulled even with Mikal Bridges (24 minutes, five points, a steal, a block, a 3-pointer), even when Booker returns, so you can give him a look if you can absorb his terrible shooting.

Josh Jackson put up 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting with six rebounds in a start for the injured Devin Booker in a loss to the Mavs on Wednesday.
He added three assists, three steals and one block to the impressive box score. He is a good stream while Booker is out, but his value will likely shoot back down once he returns. TJ Warren scored 20 points with seven rebounds on 7-of-20 shooting in a tem-high 39 minutes. Warren is a middle-round value and he’s top-55/35 in 8/9-cat so far this season, while Jackson has struggled in his bench role and is not on the fantasy spectrum.

Josh Jackson scored 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, five assists, three steals and one trey in a 31-minute start for Devin Booker (back) on Tuesday against the Kings.
Jackson's story isn't changing in the near future as he will need a massive amount of minutes to offset his bad stat set in standard leagues. If you can handle his various deficiencies, the volume could be there if injuries strike.

Josh Jackson put up 22 points with six rebounds and four assists on 9-of-13 shooting in a loss to the Hornets on Sunday.
He started the second half for an injured Devin Booker and delivered one of his best performances of the season. Although he has top-100 upside, he is just top-300 on the season and has had a disappointing 2018-2019 campaign thus far. Performances like this one make people realize the potential he has, but do not pick him up until he does this consistently.

Josh Jackson came off the bench for 16 points on 6-of-14 from the field on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer before fouling out in 27 minutes.
The Suns got run off the floor early and the bench group actually rallied the team somewhat, which explains the extra work tonight. If Jackson could actually turn in these lines with regularity he'd be an interesting upside play in deeper leagues but his shooting typically isn't this good, nor are his cash counters typically as numerous. Maybe one day he'll get it together.

Josh Jackson had a nice game on Monday with 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting to go with two triples, seven rebounds, three assists and a block.
Jackson had himself an unusually efficient game by his standards and the shooting from deep is something that we don't expect to happen on a regular basis. He's going to have extra opportunity to rack up stats on a team that has little talent, but the stat set issues are glaring and not worth the trouble for most owners. Mikal Bridges (seven points, 3-of-6 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and a steal) was outplayed by him today and will need a lot more momentum if he's going to push towards standard league value.

Josh Jackson (toe) has been cleared to play against the Wolves on Saturday.
Jackson will continue to chuck up as many shots as possible and kill your field goal percentage but his counting stats make him difficult to drop. He has attempted 15.7 shots per game over the last three, hitting only 31.9 percent but is also averaging 2.0 triples, 1.7 steals, 5.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists over that stretch. The assists will sure go down with Devin Booker back however.

Josh Jackson (toe) is listed as questionable for Saturday’s game vs. the Wolves.
Jackson has been putting up massive counting stats since Devin Booker’s hamstring injury but his percentages and turnovers leave him outside the top-150 in 9-cat during that six-game stretch. If both Jackson and Booker can’t pay we’ll see a ton of T.J. Warren with De’Anthony Melton and Jamal Crawford getting more shots.

Josh Jackson scored 14 points on 5-of-18 shooting with three 3-pointers, eight rebounds, three assists and a steal on Thursday.
Jackson came off the bench and played 32 minutes, and was a big factor in the Suns' win tonight. He still has shooting deficiencies, but if Trevor Ariza gets traded and if Jackson averages 30 minutes a night you can take a look at Jackson for those counting stats.
December 11, 2018, 11:50 pmJosh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns
Josh Jackson hit just 2-of-14 shots (including a three) in Tuesday's loss to the Spurs, finishing with seven points to go with four rebounds, one assist, three steals and four turnovers in a 35-minute start for Trevor Ariza (rest).
Jackson is brutalizing the Suns' offense and nobody in Phoenix has shown the ability to stop him. He's hands off outside of points leagues that ignore efficiency.
December 11, 2018, 8:24 pmJosh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns
The Suns are starting De'Anthony Melton, Mikal Bridges, Josh Jackson, T.J. Warren and DeAndre Ayton on Tuesday against the Spurs.
Jackson replaces Ariza, who has been the center of NBA trade rumors in recent days. Jackson has been on fire lately, though not worthy of standard league consideration just yet. The youth movement is in full force in Phoenix.

Josh Jackson continued his hot play on Monday against the Clippers with 18 points, a career-best eight assists, four boards, two triples, a block and a steal.
Jackson had started the last five games with T.J. Warren out but returned to the bench tonight. That didn't hold him back as Warren was ejected and Jackson still logged 31 minutes in the overtime match. The 18 points tied his season-high but Jackson is still only a flier in 16-team leagues.
December 7, 2018, 3:58 pmDevin Booker - G - Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker (hamstring) will not play on Friday vs. the Heat.
Booker wasn’t expected to play so this is just confirmation. If T.J. Warren (ankle) and Trevor Ariza (knee) also aren’t able to go, Josh Jackson will get lots of touches with Mikal Bridges and Troy Daniels getting a few extra shots as well.
