Notes 
 Time Lord was a huge fantasy pickup last season, and his strong play earned him a four-year extension with the C's. After sharing time in a crowded frontcourt rotation last season, he looks like the bona fide starter, which should be a boon to his fantasy value. Health has been a problem for him throughout his career, but as long as he can stay on the court, receive minutes in the mid-to-high 20's, and improve his poor shooting from the charity stripe, he could be a third-round value thanks to strong rebounding, FG%, and blocks. His current ADP is creeping closer and closer to this ranking, and the window to get him at a steep discount has likely closed.
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.
