Redskins | DeSean Jackson hasn't been at his best

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 10:54:32 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) hasn't been the same the last few weeks while working through his leg injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Jackson has almost 1,000 yards receiving and five touchdowns in 13 games this year, despite dealing with injuries. Gruden said Jackson doesn't always force opposing defenses to shift their coverage, but he often times draws the other team's best cornerback.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,200) should be fine to play against the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend. In their first meeting, D-Jax had five catches (11 targets) for 117 yards and a touchdown. Expect the best to come out in him again as he faces his old team, but temper your expectations a bit, since he's probably not close to full health yet.

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 08:13:57 -0800

Updating an earlier report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) will play Sunday, Dec. 14.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson 50-50 this week

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 13:34:56 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is 50-50 to play in Week 15, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,400; 12.8% of your cap) is probably too risky of a play on FantasyScore with an offense in disarray.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson looked better in practice

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 16:37:54 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) looked good running routes in individual drills Friday, Dec. 12, and he was able to plant hard and cut the other way. "He ran a little bit better today. So I feel pretty good about his chances, really, a little bit better and obviously better than I did last week for sure," head coach Jay Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: This obviously gives fantasy owners more hope that Jackson ($6,400) can play against the New York Giants in Week 15. Still, he'll be a fairly risky boom-or-bust option at FantasyScore if he's active.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 10:34:02 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's chances are 50-50 of playing this Sunday, so that obviously makes him a very risky play at FantasyScore for $6,400. Pierre Garcon ($4,200) and Jordan Reed ($5,200) should gain targets if Jackson sits out, with Reed probably being the safer commodity.

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 11:49:53 -0800

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson does more in practice

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 09:11:54 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) said he did more in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, but he is not where he wants to be yet.

Fantasy Tip: It is a good sign for Jackson that he was able to do more, but he is still a bit of a risky play in FantasyScore this week, especially if he is not at full strength. There are probably better options available to you for your roster.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson doing solo work

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 07:44:58 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is doing individual drills Thursday, Dec. 11. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson will need to run at full speed before he's cleared to play Sunday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,400; 12.8% of your cap) still has time to receive clearance to play the New York Giants this week and would make a mid-to-low WR3 on FantasyScore.
