Last Season – In college
ESPN Fantasy Projection – 11.1 Pts 5.8 Rebs 1.3 Stls

Jackson is a wild card. How ready is his defense against the league’s elite? How much will he be able to contribute offensively his debut year. I feel he’s more ready than majority of his class.

College – 51% FG 37% 3P 56% FT 16.3 Pts 7.4 Rebs 1.7 Stls
Summer League – 42% FG 18% 3P 64% FT 17.4 Pts 9.2 Rebs 1.2 Stls
Preseason – 45% FG 40% 3P 76% FT 14 Pts 5.8 Rebs 1 Stl

For his shooting percentages I will balance out the trio of college, summer league and preseason to average out 46% FG 31% 3P 64% FT which is obtainable for him.

Reasonable Projection – 11.9 Pts 5.9 Rebs 1.5 Stls
Goal – 14 Pts 5.9 Rebs 1.5 Stls
Middle Ground – 13 Pts 5.9 Rebs 1.5 Stls

Let’s say he surprises us all, is more ready on both sides of the court than any of us think and goes out like a man on fire en route to Rookie of the Year.

Stretch – 47% FG 35% 3P 70% FT 16.5 Pts 6.5 Rebs 2 Stls
