Redskins | DeSean Jackson coming aboard?

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 05:19:29 -0700

A source said the Washington Redskins are likely to sign free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles), and went as far as to refer it as a "done deal."

Fantasy Tip: The addition of Jackson would likely cut into Pierre Garcon's production, but would enhance Robert Griffin III's value. Jackson's deep-threat ability opens things up in the running game, and he fits the offense well. He's better served as a WR2 in PPR leagues due to his inconsistencies. It may be hard to draft him as such after his monster year, though.

Eagles | DeSean Jackson cut

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 09:45:18 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles released WR DeSean Jackson Friday, March 28.

Fantasy Tip: With D-Jax's departure, Riley Cooper effectively becomes the team's No. 1 wideout, with Jeremy Maclin coming back from a serious injury that robbed him of the entire 2013 season. Cooper and Maclin will be WR3/flex types in Chip Kelly's offense.

Jackson will be in high demand on the open market, and the New York Jets will likely push hard to sign him, because of his familiarity with Michael Vick and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
