Redskins | DeSean Jackson owns NFC East

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:59:48 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught nine passes for 243 yards and a score in two games against the Philadelphia Eagles last season, continuing a trend of big performances against NFC East opponents. "I'm called a Cowboy killer," Jackson said. "They call me the Cowboy killer. I'm a Giants killer, I'm a Cowboys killer, now I'm an Eagles killer, too."

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is a big-play receiver, and while he can occasionally be a boom-or-bust option, he should produce WR2 numbers when all is said and done.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon switches sides

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 07:00:57 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon ran routes as the "Z" receiver instead of the "X" receiver Wednesday, June 3. This means Garcon lines up split out on the right instead of the left. WR DeSean Jackson was the "X" receiver, and WRs Andre Roberts and Jamison Crowder rotated as the slot receiver.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax is a midrange WR2 in fantasy, but he loses some appeal in PPR leagues. He came back to his normal 56-catch range after busting out with 82 receptions in 2013. Garcon should be more involved this season, but it's hard to take him as anything more than a low-end WR3 in PPR formats.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson absence not a big deal

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 12:56:20 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's absence from organized team activities (OTAs) last week isn't too big of an issue, according to team president Bruce Allen. Jackson is expected to participate in OTAs this week.

Fantasy Tip: The OTAs are voluntary, so this doesn't seem to be a big deal, as Allen indicates. Jackson should be considered the top Washington receiver, at least in standard scoring leagues, and may see a boost in production if he and Robert Griffin III can stay on the field. Draft him as a WR2.

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.

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.
