Redskins | DeSean Jackson not on injury report

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 13:13:43 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will be able to play against the New York Giants, but it is not known if his injuries will affect him in any way. He will be facing an improve Giants defense but should still be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson misses practice

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 11:51:31 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle, knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, because of injuries he suffered in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Jackson will be able to practice later in the week before deciding on their lineups. He has been a solid part of the Redskins' passing game over the first two weeks and could be a No. 3 receiver for owners if he is healthy.

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 21:03:24 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson posted six receptions for 102 yards in the Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was targeted 10 times.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson looking sharp

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 20:18:35 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has displayed a greater focus this offseason, according to wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard, and CB DeAngelo Hall said Jackson has never looked better.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson can be big-play dependent at times, but the speedster is still worth drafting as a WR3.

Redskins | Josh Doctson to open as backup?

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 17:59:39 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson is likely to open the year as the backup to WR DeSean Jackson and WR Pierre Garcon while WR Jamison Crowder works as the starting slot receiver, according to bear writer John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson missed some time during minicamp, and Washington's depth at receiver further hurts his chances of making a quick impact. He should be scooped up early in rookie drafts, but he is a late-round flier in standard formats.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson shows up to OTAs

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 10:48:22 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is with the team for the third week of organized team activities after skipping the first two weeks. His absence wasn't that big of a surprise this year, as Jackson has skipped voluntary practices in previous years.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax is entering the final year of his current contract and will be looking to have a big year entering free agency. The 'Skins have a bevvy of receiving options for Kirk Cousins, with Jackson being the go-to guy. However, he's more of a deep threat and produces more for owners in standard-scoring leagues as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3.

Redskins | WAS not worried about D-Jax's absence

Tue, 31 May 2016 19:00:39 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson forfeited a $500,000 workout bonus tied to the number of workout sessions he attended, but he has already missed too much time to collect the money. He had to show up for 90 percent of the offseason workouts, which began April 18. Despite his absence, the team is not a concern for the club. Several coaches and team officials have said Jackson knows the offense and is smart, lessening their concerns.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson posted 30 catches for 528 yards and four touchdowns, missing a large chunk of the season due to a hamstring injury. As long as he is in shape and healthy, he is a dangerous WR3/4 or flex fantasy option going forward.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson not at workouts

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:26:22 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has not participated in voluntary workouts this week, but he has visited the Redskins. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson knows what kind of shape he has to be in and does expect him to participate in other voluntary workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson only played in nine games last season, so health will be key for him this offseason and throughout 2016. He's Washington's best deep threat and is still worth consideration as a low-end WR2 in standard leagues.

Redskins | Jamison Crowder to play slot

Tue, 17 May 2016 17:57:24 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will serve as the Redskins' primary slot receiver in 2016, with WRs Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson and Ryan Grant also capable of playing in the slot.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson and Doctson currently have the most fantasy appeal in Washington, but don't completely disregard Garcon, either. Crowder is a sneaky sleeper candidate after tallying 59 catches for 604 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie season, but don't view him as more than a WR5 at best in the Redskins' packed wide receiver corps.
