Josh Jackson has been on the decline in fantasy in the number 12 jersey and I have been saying it for years that he would make a better lock, and it looks like Trent Barrett has seen the same potential I see and has touted Jackson to start in the 13 jersey for 2021.
He played lock 3 times last year with an average of 44 FP. With a whole preseason under his belt at the lock position I can see him improving his Fantasy points and beating his BE with him in his new position at lock, and with his ability to hit out 80 minutes on the field along with the DP that he will get he could be a handy POD to have in your team.
Adam Elliot averaged 56 FP at lock last season at the dogs when playing 60 mins or more and I don’t see why Jackson cant hit the same scores. With a BE of 41 he could be in for a 14 point turnaround and save you some cash to spend elsewhere.
Do you agree that Jackson playing in his new role of Lock and being a DP makes him juicy and a great pick for your Fantasy team?
