Jarrett Jack G CLE 6 Days
Jarrett Jack scored just nine points with one rebound and two assists in 22 minutes off the bench on Friday.
Kyrie Irving can't be benched because he's the franchise player and Dion Waiters was cooking so Jack was a casualty tonight. It might be the case that he needs Waiters to be held back in order to make the type of impact that fantasy owners need, and with the Cavs looking like garbage the leadership angle that would theoretically get him both burn and touches hasn't materialized. He's playing like a deep league guy right now so feel free to turn him in for a hot free agent in standard formats.

Jarrett Jack returned from his neck injury and played 37 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.
The minutes were fantastic, but the rest of his line left something to be desired. He hit 3-of-6 shots and two 3-pointers for eight points, five rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and five turnovers. We still contend he'll end up being one of the best Cleveland guards before all is said and done and if he can stay healthy and keep getting this kind of run, it should happen sooner than later.

Jarrett Jack (neck) practiced on Tuesday and will be ready to go vs. the Heat on Wednesday.
Jack hurt himself on Saturday but it doesn't seem serious, and Mike Brown dismissed any concerns about him missing time. He had been on a bit of a roll in the past week, and owners should feel safe using him as they were prior to his scoreless dud this weekend.

Jarrett Jack suffered a strained neck in Saturday's loss to the Spurs.
He did not return to the game, but that's not very telling considering the Cavs were down by 30 for most of the night. A strained neck muscle is an unusual injury, so hopefully the team can shed some light on it, but we'll list him as day-to-day for now. He finished with no points and five assists in 15 minutes. If he misses time, Dion Waiters and Matthew Dellavedova would get some extra playing time.

Jarrett Jack scored 19 points off the bench on Friday to go with one board, four assists and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Pelicans.
He's been able to string games together over his last three with averages of 15.3 points, 4.7 assists and 1.3 triples. Jack could be the answer to pick up most of the work at shooting guard and is worth a look in standard leagues.

Jarrett Jack came off the bench for 14 points, six assists and two 3-pointers on 6-of-10 shooting in 28 minutes on Wednesday.
C.J. Miles went down early with a calf injury forcing Jack into heavy minutes tonight. And if Miles is going to miss time, Jack should be ready to go on a nice run for the Cavs.

Jarrett Jack hit 5-of-13 shots for 13 points, five rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in Saturday's overtime win, but also commmitted five turnovers.
Jack has been struggling for a few games now, scoring two points on Monday and six on Wednesday. He's still working out the rust left over from his knee injury, as well as figuring out his new teammates, but we're guessing he's a much better player a month from now.

Jarrett Jack had his second rough outing in a row in Wednesday's 124-95 loss to the Wolves to with six points, one board, five assists and one turnover in 24 minutes.
He was abused all night and the Wolves did whatever they wanted on offense. Jack had a sterling 20-point performance on Saturday, but then fell off a cliff with a two-point dud on Monday. He still should be able to muster up some value as long as he's around 24 minutes per game, but his upside won't be too high. Dion Waiters was just as terrible with six points, two boards and two assists in 22 minutes.

Mike Brown was happy with the results of his three-guard lineup on Saturday, which featured Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters and Jarrett Jack.
"I felt it was the right time to experiment," Brown said. "It makes us that much more dynamic [offensively]. They can all create, shoot and pass. It was a neat thing to watch those guys feed off each other. The trust and belief was there." The combo may not live up to Brown's usual defensive standards, but it helps that Waiters and Jack are both barrel-chested, physical guards.

Jarrett Jack scored 13 points on 3-of-10 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 25 minutes off the bench on Friday.
Jack also made all four of his freebies to round out a nice bounce-back night. With Mike Brown on the warpath it's possible he leans a bit more on his vet, so give Jack a look if he has been dropped in your 12-14 team format.
