Notes 
 Playoff P impressed in the postseason, leading the Clippers past the top-seeded Jazz without Kawhi Leonard. With Leonard expected to be out through at least the All-Star Break, expect PG13 to take on a high usage rate and contribute significantly across most categories. He's a borderline top-5 player who's going in the early-to-mid second round, making him quite a value. If you're drafting at the 1-2 turn, you're actually at an advantageous spot to be able to snag George and another elite player in one fell swoop.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Jackson appeared in just 11 games last season but looked good while on the court. If he can remain healthy this season, there's hope that he can build upon his productive 2019-20 season in which he averaged 17.4 points, 4.6 boards, 2.5 triples, and 1.6 blocks while shooting efficiently. Improvements on these numbers could net him top-40 production, and he may be an undervalued steal in fantasy drafts.
