Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 1, and is probable for Week 9.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson should be in all starting lineups this weekend against the Oakland Raiders.
Thu, 31 Oct 2013 12:03:32 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles LB Jake Knott (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 31. WR DeSean Jackson (ankle), P Donnie Jones (foot), LB Casey Matthews (hip) and QB Michael Vick (hamstring) were limited. SS Patrick Chung (shoulder), LS Jon Dorenbos (groin), QB Nick Foles (concussion), WR Damaris Johnson (ankle), OT Jason Peters (shoulder, finger), RB Chris Polk (shoulder) and DE Cedric Thornton (knee) practiced in full.
Fantasy Tip: Vick has already been ruled out this weekend and may miss more time with his hamstring that refuses to cooperate.
Thu, 31 Oct 2013 09:08:09 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) is expected to practice Thursday, Oct. 31.
Fantasy Tip: D-Jax turned out to be limited and should be a full go in Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders. With Nick Foles (concussion) expected to start, Jackson should be a must-start.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 11:33:14 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Fantasy Tip: It appears Jackson is on track to play Week 9 despite his injury. He should be considered a starter in all fantasy leagues this week.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 11:28:22 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk (shoulder), WR Damaris Johnson (ankle) and LB Jake Knott (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. QB Michael Vick (hamstring), WR DeSean Jackson (ankle), OT Jason Peters (finger, shoulder), DE Cedric Thornton (knee), LB Casey Matthews (hip) and P Donnie Jones (foot) were limited during practice. QB Nick Foles (concussion), SS Patrick Chung (shoulder) and LS Jon Dorenbos (groin) fully participated in practice.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 11:29:40 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley could start in Week 8 against the New York Giants if QBs Michael Vick (hamstring) and Nick Foles (concussion) can't play. "My decision on who our quarterback is is based on health," head coach Chip Kelly said. "Right now, I don't who's healthy or who's not healthy. Until we find out who's healthy, it doesn't help anybody to say, 'That guy's our starter.' It doesn't help the situation."
Fantasy Tip: Barkley tossed three interceptions after replacing Foles against the Dallas Cowboys. If he's forced to start this weekend, you'd be wise to downgrade DeSean Jackson and the rest of Philly's offensive weapons.
Sun, 13 Oct 2013 21:20:18 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson had six receptions for 64 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 6 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jackson now has five touchdown receptions through six games. He had seven receiving touchdowns in his previous 32 games.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option. However, he is unlikely to keep up this pace, and makes for a nice sell-high candidate in fantasy leagues.
Tue, 08 Oct 2013 12:40:12 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson isn't worried about working against one of the best shut-down cornerbacks in the league in Week 6 in Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis. "I'm sure (Darrelle Revis) will follow me around," Jackson said. "He followed me around when he was with the New York Jets two years ago. I'm sure his coaches are confident in him. But I don't think he can run with me. I don't think he's as fast as me." Jackson had only two catches for 28 yards the last time he faced Revis.
Fantasy Tip: This isn't the same as back when Revis played for the New York Jets, but you should keep it in the back of your mind if you own D-Jax. Nick Foles starting at quarterback for the Iggles in Week 6 may also be a factor. Knock Jackson down a bit in your weekly rankings, but it probably won't be enough to bench him, depending on your other options.
Fri, 27 Sep 2013 10:30:45 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson will match up against his former teammate, Denver Broncos CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, in Week 4 play. CB Champ Bailey (foot) remains questionable to play again this weekend. Rodgers-Cromartie covered Jackson almost every practice for the last two years when the two played together.
Fantasy Tip: Denver's secondary has given up big chunks of yardage through three games, likely because they've had the luxury of playing with big leads. D-Jax should have a nice game this weekend with Michael Vick targeting him early and often.
Tue, 10 Sep 2013 09:45:53 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles' offense was efficient and quick in their Week 1 victory over the Washington Redskins Monday, Sept. 9; they ran a play every 22.4 seconds and 53 in the entire game. RB LeSean McCoy had big holes to run through, and WRs DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant and TE Brent Celek were wide open most of the time down the field. QB Michael Vick was very successful running the read-option. However, the Eagles players looked fatigued late in the game, often coming off the field for breathers. Jackson didn't catch any passes in the second half. "The tempo really worked," McCoy said. "I don't think anyone has seen it that fast. We've got to learn. We're learning as the thing goes. Coach Chip Kelly is a great coach. Today is the first time a lot of the guys in the locker room had fun. We couldn't wait to get back out there and have fun."
Fantasy Tip: Philly's offense was downright impressive in the first half. The up-tempo attack should continue to create mismatches in opposing defenses, but as we saw in the second half, is this something that Philadelphia will be able to sustain over a full season? Probably not, but for the time being, it makes all of the Iggles' offensive weapons much more attractive.
Mon, 09 Sep 2013 21:31:03 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson hauled in seven receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game Monday, Sept. 9, against the Washington Redskins. He was targeted a team-high nine times.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson had just two 100-yard games and two touchdowns in 2012, so he is already off to a great start for his fantasy owners. In Philadelphia's up-tempo offense, Jackson appears to be in line for a big uptick in offensive production.
Fri, 06 Sep 2013 16:28:10 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he expects to perform well in head coach Chip Kelly's offense because he will be moved around which will keep opposing defenses off-guard. "In the past, teams have done a great job of seeing what I've done early in my career with making the big plays and electrifying plays and things like that, but now with this offense coming in, it's really going to be a plus in my eyes," Jackson said. "A lot of teams don't really know what to expect. Regardless of what we did in the preseason, I still think there are a lot of plays that have been hidden and that we haven't been running. The versatility with the offense will keep the defense off-guard." Jackson also said he believes he will have a bigger role in the offense because of the injury to WR Jeremy Maclin (knee).
Fantasy Tip: Jackson likely will be one of the focal points in the team's passing game this season and could also receive some carries at times. He should be seen as a solid No. 2 fantasy wide receiver Week 1 with the possibility of being a low-end No. 1 receiver in non point-per-reception leagues.
Thu, 22 Aug 2013 08:45:29 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick said he and WR DeSean Jackson are going to watch film together Thursday, Aug. 22. He said that's not something they did together in the past.
Fri, 09 Aug 2013 18:49:19 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick completed four of his five pass attempts for 94 yards, one touchdown and no interception in the preseason opener Friday, Aug. 9, against the New England Patriots. The score was a 47-yard pass and catch with WR DeSean Jackson in the first quarter.
Fantasy Tip: Vick and Nick Foles are locked in a battle for the starting job, and both actually looked pretty impressive. Vick is expected to be named as the starter, but for now he is only worth considering as a low-end QB2 due to the uncertainty.
Fri, 02 Aug 2013 09:39:48 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (toe) returned to practice Friday, Aug. 2.
Thu, 01 Aug 2013 11:44:23 -0700
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (toe) left practice with a minor toe injury Thursday, Aug. 1.
Thu, 01 Aug 2013 10:23:14 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (undisclosed) left practice early Thursday, Aug. 1.
Sun, 28 Jul 2013 08:10:20 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he will be the team's punt returner this season and is looking forward to handling the role. "I'm very excited about that," Jackson said. "Able to go out there once again, help the offense get in great field position and things like that. Something I'm looking forward to."
Sat, 20 Jul 2013 17:34:10 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson likely will not be the team's main punt returner but could get all of the opportunities in the fourth quarter of close games.
Fri, 19 Jul 2013 09:56:05 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin said he is expecting to be more involved in the team's offense in 2013. Maclin believed that the previous offense was tailored around WR DeSean Jackson. "There's two ways you can run the West Coast Offense," Maclin said. "You can run it where the flanker position, you can put him in the slot, put him in motion, or you can tailor it around a single receiver who's always by himself. And when Marty was here, we tailored it around the flanker position. That's just how it was."
Tue, 09 Jul 2013 16:06:00 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WRs DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Damaris Johnson are considered locks to make the team. One or two more spots will be filled by Riley Cooper, Arrelious Benn, Ifeanyi Momah, B.J. Cunningham and Russell Shepard.
Fantasy Tip: Benn could be a better keep than Cooper because he can play the slot and outside along with his return experience. Either way, the wide receivers in Chip Kelly's system take a hit from past years in Andy Reid's. Jackson and Maclin are merely WR3s, and these depth players aren't as attractive as fantasy flyers anymore.
Sat, 15 Jun 2013 21:24:11 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson clarified but ultimately stood behind his comments about wanting to have the Eagles' starting quarterback named before training camp.
"I wish I could know, but at the end of the day, that's the coach's decision," Jackson said. "I'm going to play that how it goes. I think we have four great quarterbacks, with [Michael] Vick, [Nick] Foles, [Matt] Barkley and [Dennis] Dixon ... I think throughout the offseason, everybody did everything the right way, everybody practiced hard, everybody was there, accountable, and did the things they were asked to do ... moving forward, we just look forward to knowing who will be [the starter], because that'll definitely help us prepare better going into the season. He's [Chip Kelly] never been a coach of ours; of course, with a new system, he's going to want to know who best fits the system."
Tue, 04 Jun 2013 17:57:41 -0700
NFL agent Drew Rosenhaus has filed a grievance against Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson, alleging his former client Jackson owes him more than $400,000 in unpaid loans. Rosenhaus claims Jackson took multiple loans between 2009 and March 2012, according to a source. Jackson fired Rosenhaus in late May, and has yet to secure a new agent.
Tue, 04 Jun 2013 08:07:39 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he had a meeting with head coach Chip Kelly after Jackson was running with the third-team offense at times in OTAs. Jackson said he got the message and is all-in. "He just expects everyone to do things a certain way," Jackson said. "He was asking everybody to do the same thing. For myself, I just had to really hear it from his mouth to get that rapport with him and be on the same page with him. When I went in there, he said he expects everybody to buy into the system and do everything the right way."
Mon, 03 Jun 2013 05:32:34 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson parted ways with agent Drew Rosenhaus and is looking to sign on with Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports agency.
Fri, 31 May 2013 08:18:30 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) is not participating in organized team activities Friday, May 31.
Thu, 23 May 2013 15:21:26 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly confirmed that he prefers larger and taller players at most positions on his team, but he's in favor of protecting his smaller players like WR DeSean Jackson. Jackson touched the ball progressively less in each of his five NFL seasons in part because the team worried about keeping him healthy. Jackson only played in five games last year because of fractured ribs and only scored one touchdown. He hopes he can go back to being extremely productive in the team's new offense with larger players creating mismatches for their opponents. "I'm challenging myself to be able to play every position," said Jackson, who's been hinting all offseason that he could be lining up in the backfield as well. "There might be a play or a different position where I normally would not line up or be in, but the leeway of the offense gives us the opportunity to go inside and outside and things like that, so I'm taking advantage of the opportunity to learn the whole offense and be in different spaces throughout the game."
Twelve of the team's receivers on the roster are 6-foot-1 or taller, including WRs Arrelious Benn (6-foot-6), Greg Salas (6-foot-1) and Riley Cooper (6-foot-3). Kelly hopes to make opponents pay if they decide to double team Jackson or jam him at the line of scrimmage. Having bigger receivers outside to block should also help the running game. WR Russell Shepard, an undrafted rookie, will have the same opportunity as Benn to prove himself. "I was on the front line on kickoffs, I played running back, I played quarterback, I played receiver," Shepard said. "So (the versatility) is giving me more of an opportunity of making this 53-man roster."
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should expect Kelly to try and involve Jackson more in an offense that should cater to Jackson's wishes to touch the ball more often and score more frequently. Jackson has been a frustrating play in point-per-reception formats in his career, but that could be changing. Until we know more about how he may be involved in this new scheme, consider him a midrange No. 3 wideout.
Wed, 03 Apr 2013 10:18:59 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he is looking forward to play in head coach Chip Kelly's offense in 2013 because of the different things he will be doing. "I feel the sky's the limit for myself," Jackson said Wednesday. "I think this year, with Chip coming in with the style of play of his offense, it's really going to help me out a lot more as well. I'm going to be able to get certain looks, get the ball in my hand, do things I wasn't doing the past five years. So that's going to be an exciting time for myself. I'm going to have to be fully prepared, fully in shape, fully healthy."
Fantasy Tip: Jackson could have more fantasy value next season if he adds rushing yards to his receiving yards. He should be the top option in the team's passing attack in 2013 but could be a risky every-week starter in fantasy leagues because of his inconsistent production.
Thu, 21 Mar 2013 07:33:39 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is expected to return punts, according to head coach Chip Kelly.
Mon, 11 Feb 2013 08:51:42 -0800
Since recording nine touchdowns in the 2009 season, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson's scoring has decreased in each of the last three seasons, from six to four to two this past season. Injuries, a contract dispute and questionable playcalling can be used as reasons for the decline.
Sat, 02 Feb 2013 07:30:35 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said the arrival of Chip Kelly as head coach is "going to make defensive coordinators crazy." Jackson expects big things from Kelly's up-tempo offense.
Sat, 02 Feb 2013 05:24:17 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he fully expects QB Michael Vick to return in 2013, with the team hiring head coach Chip Kelly. "For sure I can see it. Now that Chip Kelly is our offensive coordinator, I mean our head coach, Michael Vick I think it's a no-brainer to keep him here," Jackson said. "It fits his playing style and what he's done perfect."
Fri, 01 Feb 2013 17:50:32 -0800
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said head coach Chip Kelly indicated he plans to use Jackson like he did University of Oregon RB DeAnthony Thomas when he coached at Oregon. Thomas recorded 2,235 all-purpose yards in two years under Kelly being a runner, receiver and returner during the time.
Fri, 01 Feb 2013 13:42:14 -0800
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ribs) said new head coach Chip Kelly told him that he will be used heavily in the team's offense. "He called me and was very excited. I could tell in his voice," Jackson said. "He was like, 'Let me know when you're back in Philly so we can just talk face to face.' I actually talked to Pat Shurmur. He was my coach when I first got to Philly. He's excited, as well." However, Jackson has no idea who will be the team's quarterback next season. Jackson also mentioned that his fractured ribs are "98 percent" healthy.
Thu, 24 Jan 2013 14:36:09 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said he is excited about new head coach Chip Kelly and is looking forward to what he brings to team offensively. "I was looking at what he did at Oregon. My little cousin is actually De'Anthony Thomas, the Black Mamba, so our styles are kind of similar," Jackson said. "What he's done in that offense as far as lighting it up and getting in that end zone, that's what I'm excited about."
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 11:40:51 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin is believed to be a trade chip this offseason since WR DeSean Jackson's contract extension means he'll be back. However, in four games with Jackson out, Maclin has caught 24 passes for 331 yards and two touchdowns. Maclin is one of only eight receivers in history with at least 55 grabs and 750 yards in each of his first four seasons, too.
Tue, 27 Nov 2012 12:09:18 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ribs) was placed on Injured Reserve Tuesday, Nov. 27.
Tue, 27 Nov 2012 10:13:36 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said WR DeSean Jackson (ribs) is dealing with two broken ribs and is out for the rest of the season.
Fantasy Tip: This will obviously boost Jason Avant's value as the No. 2 receiver behind Jeremy Maclin to close out the year. For as long as Michael Vick (concussion) sits out, rookie Nick Foles will likely continue to rely on Brent Celek as well. With a patchwork offensive line and rookie QB at the helm, though, temper your expectations for Jackson's replacements.
Tue, 27 Nov 2012 09:46:08 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ribs) is dealing with several fractured ribs and is expected to miss the rest of the season.
Tue, 27 Nov 2012 06:28:07 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (ribs) is expected to miss a few weeks with a rib cartilage strain. Jackson, QB Michael Vick (concussion) and RB LeSean McCoy (concussion) are all expected to miss the Week 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Fantasy Tip: Jason Avant's role figures to increase, as he would move into a possession-receiver role. This could actually add some continuity on offense for Nick Foles with Avant and Brent Celek underneath while Jeremy Maclin stretches things deep. Avant and Celek's value increases in Jackson's absence, especially in PPR leagues, while Maclin's isn't diminished too much. Bryce Brown is an important cog in the mix, though. If he can't run the ball effectively, and keep defenses honest, the heavy defensive pressure will keep the passing game under wraps.
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 20:13:41 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin had five receptions for a team-high 55 yards in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers. WR Damaris Johnson managed two grabs for 13 yards, while WR DeSean Jackson (sternum) was limited to one grab for nine yards before leaving early due to injury. WR Riley Cooper also got onto the stat sheet with one grab for seven yards.
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 19:17:41 -0800
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (sternum) will not return to the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 26, after leaving with a first quarter injury. X-rays were negative.
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 19:08:03 -0800
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (sternum) has a sternum injury, and he is doubtful to return to the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 26. X-rays taken in the first half of his chest and collarbone area were negative.
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 18:16:21 -0800
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (chest, collarbone) was taken to the locker room near the end of the first quarter of the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 26, to have X-rays on his chest and collarbone area. His return status is unclear.

Fri, 23 Nov 2012 09:03:04 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WRs DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin combined for five receiving yards in Week 11. "That was terrible," offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. "I have to do a better job getting them the ball."
Sun, 11 Nov 2012 21:50:04 -0800

Mon, 05 Nov 2012 20:03:00 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (forearm) suffered a forearm contusion in the third quarter of the Week 9 game against the New Orleans Saints. His return is probable.
