Giants | Rogers-Cromartie to cover DeSean Jackson

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:44:10 -0700

New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is likely to cover Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson in Week 4 Thursday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson came alive last week against his old team in Kirk Cousins' first start. With Cousins at the helm, Jackson's value could be on the rise. Consider using him this week at FantasyScore for a price of $6,000 (12.0% of salary cap).

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited during practice Monday, Sept. 22. The team participated in a jog-through Monday.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson active today

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 08:36:11 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active Sunday, Sept. 21, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Jackson may not participate in his full amount of plays this week. Jackson ($6,000; 12% of your cap) is worthy of a WR3 spot on FantasyScore, but there is risk with his potential reward.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will warm up before the game Sunday, Sept. 21, and will be a game-time decision.

Fantasy Tip: He's expected to play as the issue is pain management. Jackson ($6,000; 12% of your cap) is a solid WR3 option on FantasyScore if he's able to go in his "revenge game."

Redskins | DeSean Jackson to test shoulder more

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 11:15:36 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder), who was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 19, didn't look 100 percent fluid in individual drills, but he was able to catch the ball. He will work out with trainers Saturday, Sept. 20, and Sunday, Sept. 21, before the team makes a decision on whether he can play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The team remains optimistic about his chances of playing. WR Ryan Grant will receive more playing time if Jackson can't play.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's $6,000 salary at FantasyScore is a decent-sized risk, even if he does play. Will he be limited? And what are the chances of re-injury? Andre Roberts ($3,700) is a fine sleeper play if D-Jax doesn't play.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 09:42:20 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson made steps in a "positive direction," however. Jackson went through individual drills in practice Friday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: All signs currently point to Jackson playing, but you'll have to check back Sunday morning to be sure. He's a risky play at FantasyScore for $6,000 (12.0% of salary cap).

Redskins | DeSean Jackson not practicing

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 10:15:34 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is on the stationary bike as the rest of the team stretches for practice Thursday, Sept. 18. The plan is for Jackson to test his shoulder in practice Friday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Even with the injury, one would have to think Jackson will be on the field on Sunday with a chance to play his former team. He is an intriguing option in FantasyScore with a price of $6,000 (12% of cap), but the injury does make him a risky play.

Eagles | DeSean Jackson's size was an issue

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 07:46:01 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles in the offseason because of his size, according to head coach Chip Kelly. "Yeah, just trying to build the overall team in terms of what we're looking for offensively and how we wanted to get bigger at the wideout spot and that's what we did," Kelly said. Kelly also said Jackson's character off the field did not weigh in the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson (shoulder) is expected to play this week. His $6,000 (12% of your cap) price tag is pretty sizeable on FantasyScore this week. Monitor his workload in practice this week to gauge your comfort level of playing him in Week 3.

Redskins | McCoy: DeSean Jackson will play

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 10:28:47 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, his former team, according to Eagles RB LeSean McCoy. "He's playing," McCoy said. "He said he's definitely playing. That's the first thing he texted, he said 'I'm playing.'"

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is a gamer and wouldn't miss the opportunity to try and torch his old team. Because of that, he makes for an interesting play at $6,000 (12.0% of cap) over at FantasyScore. His health is a risk, though.
