Eagles | DeSean Jackson may be FA target for Philly

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 10:02:58 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is expected to be pursued by the Philadelphia Eagles when he is a free agent this offseason, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should receive interest from multiple teams if he becomes available this offseason. He likely would be one of the starting receivers if he joins the Eagles since he would be familiar with the offense. Jackson probably will be a No. 3 receiver no matter where he plays next season.

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 19:36:31 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson tends to be an all-or-nothing fantasy play, but with touchdowns in back-to-back games, he could be worth the gamble as a WR3 in Week 13.

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 12:39:08 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 12 game.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should see his normal workload this week and will have a role in the passing game. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues, but owners in most leagues probably will be able to find better options to use.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson listed as questionable

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 12:20:44 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should have a good chance to play this week since he fully participated in practice Wednesday. He has been fairly consistent over the last several weeks but has not posted more than 55 yards in the last six games. Owners on deeper leagues could consider Jackson as a flex option, but he probably can be passed over in most leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited Tuesday

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 09:24:46 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) took part in a limited practice Tuesday, Nov. 22.

Fantasy Tip: There doesn't appear to be any real concern about Jackson missing Week 12 versus the Dallas Cowboys, but he is on the verge of falling off the fantasy map regardless. The 29-year-old snapped a five-game streak without a touchdown on Sunday night, which also marked the first time since Week 3 he posted a double-digit fantasy-point effort in PPR leagues. The Cowboys have been mostly stingy against receivers this year, so treat Jackson as a low-upside WR4 on Thanksgiving.

Redskins | Limited participation for DeSean Jackson

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 15:33:09 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 21.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins did not practice Monday, so Jackson's participation is an estimation. He was able to record 51 yards and one touchdown in the last game and will see a decent amount of targets in Week 12. Owners in deeper leagues can consider Jackson a flex option this week.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson active for SNF

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 16:48:39 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active for the Week 11 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will be working against a banged up and porous Green Bay secondary, so it should be a successful return to the lineup for D-Jax and his fantasy owners.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson expected to play

Sat, 19 Nov 2016 09:38:45 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 11 even though he is listed as questionable, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was not able to play in Week 10 because of the injury but appears to be feeling better this week. He should have a solid role in the passing game but has not posted great numbers recently. Jackson could be a flex option in deeper leagues but can be avoided in most leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson gets in full practice

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 13:07:50 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Officially, he's listed as questionable for Week 11, but this is great progress from the veteran wide-out, after getting in two limited sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. Jackson is clearly trending in the right direction, and it looks like he'll be able to suit up on Sunday evening, though waiting it out could also be a bit of a risk if he ends up on the sidelines again like last week. Still, Jackson figures to be worth it, with a salivating matchup on tap against Green Bay's hobbled defense.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable for Week 11

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 11:51:58 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: With the Redskins playing Sunday night and Jackson doing next to nothing in fantasy this season, owners can feel free to keep him on the bench or cut bait in leagues with shallow benches. Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder should be in play for owners against the Packers' struggling defense, while Jordan Reed could see even more targets than usual.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited again

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 13:33:42 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson appears to be genuinely questionable for Week 11 after being sidelined in Week 10. If he's limited tomorrow then his status will need to be checked right before kickoff this weekend. If Jackson can't play again then Jordan Reed, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder should all see more looks in a favorable matchup versus the Green Bay Packers.

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 22:14:02 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was not able to play in the last game because of the injury, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He will have a role in the passing game if he is active for Week 11 but should only be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson's status uncertain

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 16:46:49 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) has not been ruled out for Week 11 at this point, but head coach Jay Gruden said the team is not sure if Jackson can play.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was not able to play and probably will miss another game if his shoulder does not show improvement. Owners in all leagues probably should look for other options to use even if Jackson plays in Week 11.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson could miss multiple games

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 06:53:39 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is likely to miss Week 11's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to a source. He has already been ruled out for Week 10's game versus the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Although this is disappointing news, a recent MRI exam revealed that there is no major structural damage in Jackson's left rotator cuff. WRs Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garcon should see more targets in his absence but neither player should be considered as anything more than a WR3 or flex option.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson ruled out

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 07:05:59 -0800

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was ruled out for Week 10 due to some issues with his rotator cuff in his left shoulder. Jackson had an MRI Thursday, Nov. 10, which revealed no serious structural damage.

Fantasy Tip: Pierre Garcon could see a few more targets against the Minnesota Vikings this week. However, his upside is severely limited with a 36-396-1 line on the season, and he's a lackluster flex option.

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 20:52:59 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will not play against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10, according to sources.

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 11:22:09 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's status for Week 10 will not be known until later in the week, so owners should monitor the situation.

Owners may want to look for healthier options to use in their lineups.

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 12:49:52 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (head) caught three passes for 48 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson suffered a head injury during the game but will have an extra week to recover. He has not posted great numbers over the last few weeks and probably should only be a flex option in deeper leagues unless he can be more productive.

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 08:56:37 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (head) left the team's Week 8 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion. He is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for an update on Jackson after the game to see if he has a concussion. He will have a bye week to recover, so he has a chance to play in Week 10. Jackson can be a low-end No. 3 receiver or a flex option when he is healthy.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 17:06:33 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring, shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should have a solid chance to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list. He was off to a terrific start to the season but has been held to less than 50 yards in three of the last four games. He should still be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option because he will be targeted in the passing game.

Redskins | Five grabs for DeSean Jackson

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 17:48:06 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had five receptions for just 35 yards in the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson entered with a shoulder injury, and did not show any lingering effects of the injury. However, he has been limited to just 13 grabs for 130 yards over his past four games with zero touchdowns. That's simply not going to do for fantasy owners. He'll look to bounce back in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals in London, but should be reserved until he starts to pick up the pace.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught three passes for 35 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.

Redskins| DeSean Jackson limited Thursday

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 13:42:41 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee, ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was limited in practice last week, too, and still ended up catching five passes on eight targets for 96 yards and a touchdown. Don't let the limited status fool you. Jackson may not be quite at 100 percent heading into Week 4, but he's still capable of putting up WR2 numbers in a favorable matchup versus the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Together with Jamison Crowder, Jackson appears to have re-ignited the Redskins' receiving game. If you can put up with the mercurial team and its numbers every week, Jackson is a WR1 or WR2 who can put up solid numbers.

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.

Redskins | Josh Doctson to start eventually?

Sun, 08 May 2016 12:04:27 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson could overtake either WRs Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson in the starting lineup at some point in 2016, in the opinion of Rich Tandler of realredskins.com.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon would be more likely to yield playing time to Doctson, and, of course, all three will see the field at the same time on occasion. Doctson is one of the more promising rookies this year and should be drafted as a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4.
