The Pistons improved, but not for fantasy owners

According to head coach Dwane Casey, Reggie Jackson is expected to be good to go for the regular-season opener.
As expected with this news. Nobody is banking their season Jackson's performance, but he is someone to keep in mind towards the end of standard-league drafts. He is a reliable source for points, assists and set a career-high with 2.1 3-pointers a game last year. With the Pistons likely to be on the cusp of the playoffs, Jackson should get plenty of opportunities to contribute throughout the year.

Reggie Jackson is dealing with some lower back tightness that will ultimately hold him out of Wednesday's preseason game vs. the Hornets.
Jackson's absence shouldn't come as a surprise as the team is gearing up for the regular season. Jackson has solidified himself as the starting point guard with Derrick Rose as the primary back-up. Jackson could be taken with one of the last picks of standard redraft leagues as he has a relatively safe floor without much upside.

Reggie Jackson (back), Luke Kennard (knee) and Markieff Morris (illness) are all questionable for Wednesday's preseason matchup vs. the Hornets.
The Pistons are likely exercising caution while the games don't matter. They will be ready once the regular season rolls around. Monitor their status ahead of tip-off for DFS lineups.

Reggie Jackson went 1-for-8 from the floor in 16 minutes in a loss to the Sixers on Tuesday, compiling just four points, one rebound, two assists and a block.
Jackson has long been an inconsistent player, but this one can at least be partially chalked up to preseason resting. He's hanging around until the final rounds in most drafts, and he fits the bill if you're looking for a fourth or fifth guard.

Reggie Jackson scored 15 points and added two rebounds, four assists, a steal and a three in Friday's win over the Cavs.
Jackson has some major competition at point guard this season with Derrick Rose now on the team. Rose also put up 15 points, along with three rebounds, an assist and a block. If Jackson isn't playing well, coach Dwayne Casey may opt for Rose to finish games. They may also play alongside each other in the backcourt. Jackson and Rose are low upside point guards available towards the end of standard-league drafts.

Derrick Rose came off the bench to score 18 points on 8-for-12 shooting, dish five assists and grab two rebounds in Wednesday night's win over the Mavs.
Rose wasn't able to hit his lone three-point attempt on the evening but overall looked much more efficient than Reggie Jackson, who had 13 points on 4-for-11 shooting.

Reggie Jackson has been cautious with his summer workouts and is looking forward to a healthy season.
Last season, for the first time in his career, Jackson played all 82 games. He is entering the final season of his 5-year deal worth $80 million and faces an uncertain future with the Pistons. In the final 36 games, he averaged 17.0 points and 4.3 assists, while shooting 41 percent on 3-pointers. In the four playoff games, he was even better, with 17.8 points, 7.0 assists and 43 percent beyond the arc. He transformed from a traditional point guard to more of a spot-up shooter, with Blake Griffin as the main facilitator and he looks forward to teaming with Derrick Rose in some stints, in what could be an intriguing backcourt and one that fits with coach Dwane Casey’s tendency to use two hybrid point guards.

With Ish Smith potentially leaving in free agency, Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press is reporting that Derrick Rose will be among the names that the front office discusses as a potential replacement.
The Pistons are expected to be in on multiple point guards, with Rose, Seth Curry, Ricky Rubio and Patrick Beverley mentioned in the report. Rose would certainly give the Pistons more scoring punch but he wouldn't exactly help them space the floor, which proved to be a major issue over the course of the season. The team is operating as though Reggie Jackson is their top option but we might not get a great handle on his exact role until after the free agency dust settles.

Reggie Jackson scored a team-high 26 points (9-of-20 FGs, 5-of-9 threes, 3-of-3 FTs) with seven dimes, three boards and a steal in Monday's Game 4 loss to the Bucks.
Jackson looked great tonight while keeping the Pistons in front for the majority of the game. However, the Bucks went on a big run in the third and fourth quarters to complete the sweep. Jackson, at age 29, doesn't have a whole lot of upside left, but he's certainly capable of putting together games like this once or twice a month to swing a head-to-head matchup.

Reggie Jackson scored 15 points on 6-of-15 from the field, added eight assists, six rebounds, a steal and three 3-pointers on Saturday night against the Bucks.
Jackson tried to be effective in the matchup against the Bucks tonight but to no avail. The Pistons fall 3-0 to Milwaukee despite Blake Griffin being available to play. Detroit needs more production out of Jackson and to also outplay Eric Bledsoe if they don't want to get swept in their next home game.

Reggie Jackson did what he could in Wednesday's 99-120 loss to the Bucks, scoring 18 points (7-of-16 from the field) to go with eight assists, three rebounds and a 3-pointer in 25 minutes of action.
Jackson was able to play better than he did in Game 1, but it did little to stop the freight train that is this Milwaukee Bucks team. Jackson and the Pistons will have to really out-perform what they have thus far if they are to take a game in this series.

Reggie Jackson scored 12 points on 6-of-14 from the field, and added five assists, a rebound and a steal on Sunday night against the Bucks.
Jackson played 22 minutes in this one, but was run out of the gym tonight along with the rest of his teammates. There really isn't much to take away from this game for the Pistons, but it goes without saying Jackson will have to play much better than this if the Pistons hope to steal Game 2 against the Eastern Conference champions.

Reggie Jackson bounced back in Wednesday's season finale, dropping 21 points on 6-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, seven dimes and three treys in 25 minutes.
Jackson wraps up his 2018-19 campaign with value in the top-140/130 range in 8/9-cat per-game value. He posted averages of 15.4 points, 2.1 treys, 2.6 boards and 4.2 assists per game. The biggest eye-opener from Jackson this season was his milestone of playing in all 82 games, the first time in his seven-year career. His stat set issues are still there, so yes his upside will forever be capped, but after seeing play a combined 97 games over the last two seasons, it's a big positive that he's healthy enough to flirt with top-100 totals value.

Reggie Jackson played 22 minutes on Sunday, scoring nine points on 3-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, three assists, a block and two triples.
Jackson's hot run from a couple weeks ago is most certainly over. He was vastly outplayed by Ish Smith today and is back to being a late-round scorer with some occasional boosts in 3-pointers.
