Description: Mariners center fielder Austin Jackson went 3-for-4 and scored a run on Sunday against the Nationals.
Insight: Jackson has a 11-game winning streak, but in his first month in Seattle, only hit .248 and posted a .596 OPS. It is still a good sign he is starting to heat up a bit.
 
8/27/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: Mariners center fielder Austin Jackson is a career .417 hitter (10-for-24) with four extra-base hits against Rangers starter Colby Lewis
Insight: Jackson takes a seven-game hitting streak into Wednesday's game. In the series against the Rangers, the center fielder is 2-for-8 with a triple and run scored. Jackson is hitting .266 with 65 runs and 13 steals this year.
 
8/10/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Austin Jackson went 3-for-4 with a double and four RBI Sunday against the White Sox.
Insight: Jackson came in with a .400 average in 45 career at-bats against White Sox starter John Danks and he didn't disappoint fantasy owners who rolled with him Sunday. The center fielder is 10-for-36 (.277) since he joined the Mariners.
 
Cold8/10/2014 12:14:00 PM
Description: Austin Jackson has hit .219 with one RBI and three runs in eight games since he was traded to the Mariners, but he has a good matchup Sunday.
Insight: Jackson is 18-for-45 (.400) with two doubles, three homers and five walks in his career against White Sox starter John Danks and he's also hitting .315 against left-handers this season.
 
Hot7/31/2014 5:19:00 PM
Description: Austin Jackson is heading to the Mariners as part of a three-team trade between Seattle, Detroit and Tampa Bay.
Insight: Mariners' center fielders have the lowest OPS in baseball this season so Jackson will be a big upgrade, but he'll be more valuable to Seattle than fantasy owners even though he's batted .361 with 13 extra-base hits in his last 24 games. He'll have fewer run scoring opportunities with the Mariners and doesn't offer many homers or steals.
 
Hot7/31/2014 12:34:00 PM
Description: Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson has batted .343 with 10 doubles, two triples, one homer and 18 runs in July and he has a good matchup Thursday.
Insight: Jackson is 16-for-42 (.381) with three homers in his career against White Sox starter John Danks. Detroit had Jackson hitting fifth and sixth in the order earlier this season, but he's clearly more comfortable leading off. He's hitting .327 in 107 at-bats as the leadoff hitter this season and should remain in that spot.
 
Hot7/23/2014 8:43:00 PM
Description: Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson had yet another multi-hit game Wednesday against the Diamondbacks (2-5, 2 2B, 3 RBI, 2 R)
Insight: That makes six straight and nine in his past 10 games. Jackson has batted .382 with 10 doubles, two triples, one homer, nine RBI and 17 runs in his past 18 games.
 
7/2/2014 5:24:00 PM
Description: Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson snapped a 0-for-15 slump with three hits Wednesday against the Athletics.
Insight: Jackson has hit .205 over his last 45 games and is batting .245 with three homers, 23 RBI, 36 runs and eight steals this season. He can be avoided in most leagues.
 
6/28/2014 3:01:00 PM
Description: Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson is not in the lineup Satday against Houston.
Insight: Torii Hunter is back from a hamstring injury and the team wants to keep hot-hitting J.D. Martinez (.313, 9 HR, 32 RBI) in the lineup and get Rajai Davis some work. jackson is the odd-man out today.
 
6/25/2014 4:23:00 PM
Description: Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.
Insight: Torii Hunter is back from a hamstring injury and the team wants to keep both J.D. Martinez (.404, 5 HR, 15 RBI during 13-game hitting streak) and Rajai Davis (career .786 OPS vs. LHP) in the lineup against Texas left-hander Joe Saunders. If Jackson (.253, 3 HR, 20 RBI) doesn't start hitting, he could find himself on the bench more often.
 
6/12/2014 6:42:00 PM
Description: Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson won't start Thursday against Chicago.
Insight: With just two hits in 30 lifetime at bats against tonight's starting pitcher, Chris Sale, Jackson wouldn't have helped much anyway. Rajai Davis (.277, 4 HR, 19 RBI) will move over to center field with J.D. Martinez (.257, 3 HR, 14 RBI) getting the start in left.
 
6/12/2014 12:11:00 PM
Description: Detroit center fielder Austin Jackson is 2-for-30 (.067) against Chicago left-hander Chris Sale.
Insight: Jackson is hitting just .258 with a .710 OPS this season. He shouldn't be in any lineups on Thursday. The Tigers moving him down from the leadoff spot this season has really hurt his fantasy value.
 
6/11/2014 10:33:00 AM
Description: Detroit center fielder Austin Jackson is 15-for-39 (.385) lifetime with two doubles and three home runs against White Sox starter John Danks.
Insight: Jackson has hit safely in five straight games while going 8-for-16 (.500) in that span, but he's still hitting just .254 with a .705 OPS this season. He could be useful Wednesday but the Tigers moving him down from the leadoff spot this season really hurt his fantasy value.
 
6/8/2014 9:16:00 AM
Description: Detroit center fielder Austin Jackson has gone 6-for-9 in his last three games.
Insight: Jackson's average tumbled from .301 to .233 after he went 10-for-76 (.132) from May 12 to June 4, but he's pulling himself out of the slump.
 
Cold5/28/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Detroit center fielder Austin Jackson is hitting .217 with a .575 OPS in May and hasn't had success against Oakland left-hander Scott Kazmir.
Insight: Jackson has hit .214 (3-for-14) with eight Ks against Kazmir. The move from leadoff to fifth in the order actually hurt his fantasy value because he's not a good run producer (.245 career batting average with RISP) and he's been hitting sixth or seventh over the past month. Jackson used to be one of the top run-scoring threats in the majors, but he has just 23 runs in 45 games.
 
Cold5/22/2014 9:54:00 AM
Description: Detroit center fielder Austin Jackson is hitless in nine at-bats against Texas ace Yu Darvish.
Insight: Jackson's numbers have headed south since 2012 when he batted .300 with a solid .856 OPS. He's batting just .254 with a .724 OPS this season and just .171 over the past two weeks. Avoid.
 
5/21/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Detroit center fielder Austin Jackson crushes Indians right-hander Zach McAllister.
Insight: He's hitting .538 against him in 13 lifetime at bats. That bodes well for Jackson (.265, 2 HR, 12 RBI) Wednesday in the series finale at Progressive Field.
 
Cold5/18/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson is in a 1-for-16 slide, but facing Boston's Jake Peavy Sunday night may be able to stop it.
Insight: Jackson has batted .321 with two triples and one homer in 28 at-bats against Peavy.
 
5/7/2014 4:10:00 PM
Description: Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson will sit out Wednesday against Houston.
Insight: Jackson has reached base via hit or walk in 15 straight games. He should be back in the lineup Thursday.
 
Cold5/4/2014 1:31:00 PM
Description: Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson is only a .176 career hitter against Royals starter Jason Vargas.
Insight: That doesn't bode well for Sunday. Neither does Jackson's .214 average over his last four games (3-for-14, three strikeouts).
