2019 Fantasy Outlook
After significant foot issues wiped out his entire 2017-18 rookie campaign, Jackson was able to get on the floor for 61 games last season. The talented 21-year-old finished with 8.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 19.2 minutes over 61 games. However, that's not to say the injury bug hasn't continued to plague him. Jackson missed the last five games of the season with a concussion. He was then unable to build on a spectacular Las Vegas Summer League debut in July (30 points, three rebounds and two blocks over 32 minutes) due to a quadriceps injury. While Jackson should be fully healed by training camp, he'll initially face an uphill battle for playing time during the coming season. The Pelicans traded for Lonzo Ball and then invested the 17th overall pick in this past June's draft on Nickeil Alexander-Walker, who was impressive in summer league play. Jackson thus slots in as the third option at point guard to start camp, but his position on the depth chart has a chance to improve. That's primarily due to Ball's spotty injury history -- one that already includes a total of 65 missed games over his first two NBA seasons. Whether Jackson can approximate the playing time he averaged last season does remain very much in question. However, the relatively brief glimpses he's provided over his one college season at Duke and his Pelicans tenure do lend credence to the notion he could prove serviceable in the areas of scoring and assists in deep formats during the coming campaign.

Jackson (quad) is out Saturday against the Heat, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Jackson is still nursing a bruised quad. It's possible we've seen the last of him before the preseason, as the summer league playoffs are single elimination.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
A second-round pick in 2017, Jackson missed his entire rookie season and underwent three separate foot surgeries. He entered the summer full healthy but suffered a sprained foot in the Pelicans' Las Vegas Summer League opener in July. If there's a silver lining, it's that the sprain was to his left foot, as opposed to the surgically repaired right foot, and the hope is that he's able to make a full recovery in time for opening night. Jackson looked good during his short time on the floor in Vegas, scoring 13 points in the first half before going down with injury. The Pelicans are far from deep in their backcourt, so if Jackson is able to stay healthy, there's a good chance he could find himself a spot in the back-end of the guard rotation. The 20-year-old was an efficient scorer at Duke two seasons ago, averaging 10.9 points per game on 47.3 percent shooting from the field and 39.5 percent from three. It remains to be seen whether or not that efficiency will translate to the next level, but Jackson's long-term potential is relatively high, as far as second-round picks go. In the immediate future, Jackson can be ignored in most leagues, but he'll be a name to watch if Elfrid Payton and/or Jrue Holiday were to suffer an injury.
Jackson, who was selected with the 31st pick of the 2017 NBA Draft, comes to the Pelicans as a fairly advanced scorer. The 6-foot-3 guard was stuck in a complimentary during his lone collegiate season at Duke, but still finished with an average of 10.9 points, while shooting 54 percent from the field and more impressively, 39.2 percent from the three-point line. He didn't add much elsewhere, though he also had 2.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists across 24.9 minutes. It was that scoring ability that ultimately resulted in Jackson being selected with the first pick in the second round of the draft. He's got better than average athleticism and can finish through contact, which is a nice bonus to his three-point shooting. However, the fact that he's not much of a passer brings some questions regarding whether or not he can play the point. If he shifts over to shooting guard, Jackson will be a bit undersized for the position, so there's certainly some questions about where he'll ultimately fit in. With guys like Rajon Rondo, Jrue Holiday, Ian Clark, E'Twaun Moore and Jordan Clark all ahead of him on the backcourt depth chart, Jackson's 2017-18 campaign will largely be spent in a developmental capacity.
