  • Kosta Koufos - C - Sacramento Kings

    Kosta Koufos (right calf strain) is listed as questionable for Saturday’s game against the Pacers.

    With Marvin Bagley (back spasms) also questionable for Saturday it looks like Willie Cauley-Stein and Nemanja Bjelica will have their hands full. Justin Jackson might also get more run if the Pacers go small. We should get an update on both players before the game.

  • Justin Jackson - F - Sacramento Kings

    Justin Jackson scored 22 points off the bench in Sunday's blowout loss to the Bucks, hitting 9-of-12 shots (including four threes) with one assist in 25 minutes.

    Jackson has struggled mightily this season and he got some shots to drop tonight. He has no fantasy value.

  • Justin Jackson - F - Sacramento Kings

    Justin Jackson scored 17 points off the bench in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Nuggets, hitting 7-of-11 shots (including three treys) with three rebounds, three assists and one block in 28 minutes.

    Jackson was competent on offense and he was still bad on defense, but this qualifies for a major celebration in Sacramento. He's not going to be on the fantasy radar this season.

  • Justin Jackson - F - Sacramento Kings

    Dave Joerger said that the Kings will play in small lineups with Justin Jackson at power forward.

    The decision is supported by analytics gathered during the preseason. It's good that the Kings want to go smaller and play faster, but there may not be a less-exciting fantasy player around than Jackson. He shot under 30 percent from three, combined for 0.6 defensive stats per game and averaged just 6.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game last season. If the Kings ever land on a different power forward then we'll pay closer attention.

  • Justin Jackson - F - Sacramento Kings

    Dave Joerger mentioned on Monday that Justin Jackson could see more time at the power forward spot to help space the floor and play fast.

    The Kings have a real mess at the forward spots, with a bunch of imperfect options at the four and no real small forwards on the roster. Jackson managed to play 68 largely anonymous games last year and can't be counted on for fantasy purposes no matter where he lines up. The big takeaway here is that the Kings know they should space it out and up the tempo, which might be good news for the youngsters and bad news for Zach Randolph.
