Jaren Jackson Jr. scored 22 points (7-17 FG, 6-8 FT, 2-8 3PT) with two rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks, and one turnover in 31 minutes in Monday's 109-99 loss to the Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact:

Jackson Jr. has been lights out for Memphis in three games, averaging 25.3 points a game. The problem is, he's also averaging just 2.7 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game. If the Grizzlies are going to win some games, it's going to require JJJ to help in other areas of the game besides just scoring. For DFS purposes, Jackson is tough to roster with his limited production outside of scoring and his keen ability to get into foul-trouble. He's averaging 4.3 fouls per game, leading to fewer minutes than he may have played otherwise in each of the first three games.
