|Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson to occasionally return punts|
Sat, 11 Mar 2017 09:23:43 -0800
Fantasy Tip: In other words, Jackson will not be the primary punt returner, but he will be asked to field a punt when the team could use a big play on special teams. It's unlikely to result in more than 10 or 15 returns per season, but it could serve as a small boost to his fantasy value in return-yardage leagues. Jackson should be able to maintain his WR3 value in Tampa Bay.

|Buccaneers | Big money for DeSean Jackson|
Thu, 09 Mar 2017 19:37:36 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Jackson will add a big-play weapon to Tampa Bay's offense, and he should help Jameis Winston make another leap forward. Jackson could still be boom or bust from one game to the next, but he has enough upside to grab as a WR3.

|Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson officially signs with Bucs|
Thu, 09 Mar 2017 14:53:19 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Jackson joins Mike Evans for a dynamic deep-threat duo for Jameis Winston to throw to. Evans will still be Winston's go-to target, but Jackson will be able to open up the field for the Buccaneers and will ideally make the offense better as a whole. There's reason to be excited about Jackson in his new uniform, but he should not be viewed as more than a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.

|Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson expected to Bucs|
Thu, 09 Mar 2017 05:37:19 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Jackson is coming off a 56-1,005-4 season in a powerful offense. Those numbers aren't bad, but more was expected when he left Philadelphia after a career year in 2013. Jackson has upside as a WR3 with Mike Evans commanding so much attention on one side.

|Redskins | WAS, DeSean Jackson expected to part ways|
Tue, 07 Mar 2017 19:12:46 -0800
Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson and the team are expected to part ways, multiple people with knowledge of the situation have indicated. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys have all inquired about the wide receiver, and "barring any unforeseen circumstances," Jackson will not be in Washington next season.
Fantasy Tip: This has been the anticipated result of Jackson's free-agency journey, with the only question being just where he'll end up. The Buccaneers have emerged as the early frontrunners for a variety of reasons, but the other teams mentioned could make an interesting case as well to land the nine-year veteran. Regardless of where he plays, Jackson will still have WR2 potential.

|Buccaneers | Strong 'belief' DeSean Jackson signs w/ TB|
Sat, 04 Mar 2017 15:07:56 -0800
Impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Redskins) is expected to land a contract that will pay him close to $12 million annually, and the among league personnel at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine is that Jackson will sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.
Fantasy Tip: Pauline cites strong-armed Jameis Winston, the warm weather and no state income tax as reasons Jackson will find the Bucs attractive. It would be a huge get for Tampa Bay, as defenses would have to think twice about tilting their coverages toward Mike Evans with one of the league's best deep threats on the other side. While Jackson would probably remain a boom-or-bust WR3 and Evans might take a slight hit, Winston would shoot right up into fantasy QB1 territory.

|Redskins | Washington to talk to own FAs at combine|
Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:28:12 -0800
The Washington Redskins have yet to engage in talks with any of their players with expiring contracts - a list that includes impending free agents WR Pierre Garcon, WR DeSean Jackson, TE Vernon Davis, DE Chris Baker. However, multiple sources report the Redskins expect to meet with the representatives of their impending free agents at the NFL Scouting Combine next week.
Fantasy Tip: It's a common practice for front office personnel and player reps to discuss contracts at the combine, although Washington is making an already very long week even longer by handling its business in this manner. Garcon and Jackson are each expected to command at least $9 million in their next contracts, so both players could be on different teams next season. It's a virtual certainty at least one will not come back.

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:58:09 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Jackson should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market and would make a solid tandem in Tampa Bay with Mike Evans. Jackson will have a solid role in an offense in 2017 and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

|Redskins | DeSean Jackson wants to play with great QB|
Tue, 21 Feb 2017 19:07:07 -0800
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson said that if he leaves the team in free agency, he wants to play with a "great quarterback." When asked about QB Kirk Cousins, he referred to him as "great" as well.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson has also been linked to the Eagles and Buccaneers, both led by young quarterbacks who have the potential to be great one day, but with Jackson entering the latter portion of his career, he might prefer to stick with a more established option like Cousins. Despite being 30 years old, Jackson proved this past season he still has more than enough left in the tank, and can still offer solid value depending on where he ends up in 2017.
