Redskins | DeSean Jackson not practicing

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 10:15:34 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is on the stationary bike as the rest of the team stretches for practice Thursday, Sept. 18. The plan is for Jackson to test his shoulder in practice Friday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Even with the injury, one would have to think Jackson will be on the field on Sunday with a chance to play his former team. He is an intriguing option in FantasyScore with a price of $6,000 (12% of cap), but the injury does make him a risky play.

Eagles | DeSean Jackson's size was an issue

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 07:46:01 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles in the offseason because of his size, according to head coach Chip Kelly. "Yeah, just trying to build the overall team in terms of what we're looking for offensively and how we wanted to get bigger at the wideout spot and that's what we did," Kelly said. Kelly also said Jackson's character off the field did not weigh in the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson (shoulder) is expected to play this week. His $6,000 (12% of your cap) price tag is pretty sizeable on FantasyScore this week. Monitor his workload in practice this week to gauge your comfort level of playing him in Week 3.

Redskins | McCoy: DeSean Jackson will play

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 10:28:47 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, his former team, according to Eagles RB LeSean McCoy. "He's playing," McCoy said. "He said he's definitely playing. That's the first thing he texted, he said 'I'm playing.'"

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is a gamer and wouldn't miss the opportunity to try and torch his old team. Because of that, he makes for an interesting play at $6,000 (12.0% of cap) over at FantasyScore. His health is a risk, though.

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 10:18:56 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and is working on the side.

Redskins | Robert Griffin struggles in opener

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 05:08:42 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III struggled to move the offense down the field in the team's Week 1 loss to the Houston Texans Sunday, Sept. 7, and he didn't show any explosive running plays, either. He finished the day going 29-for-37 for 267 yards and a lost fumble, and he looked uncomfortable and unsure of himself. The Texans forced the Redskins to go on long, sustained drives, instead of allowing them to beat them with big plays. Griffin completed all eight passes to WR DeSean Jackson, but he averaged just 2.4 yards per catch.

Fantasy Tip: It was only one game, but as Keim mentions, other teams may very well follow suit with the Texans' game plan against Griffin and the offense. With a new offensive game plan in Washington, until we see Griffin become comfortable in the pocket, he may be a risky start in FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson could play

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 07:41:47 -0700

Updating earlier reports, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) could play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 7, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely he will play for precautionary reasons, but his high-end WR2 outlook remains unchanged. If he were to miss any real time, Andre Roberts would likely slot in as the second receiver and Santana Moss or Aldrick Robinson could land in the slot. Roberts is a WR4, with Moss and Robinson on the fringe of WR5 status.

Fantasy Tip: We'll update you when more is known, but it doesn't sound too serious. Jackson is a great WR2 with WR1 potential. There are some questions as to whether the offense will be fruitful enough for him to have the kind of impact last season, however.

Redskins | Andre Roberts might benefit from many weapons

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 19:46:37 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts has admitted since the signing of WR DeSean Jackson that he might have opted to go elsewhere had he known Jackson would be signed. However, Roberts might be one of the biggest beneficiaries of having WRs Pierre Garcon and Jackson, as well as TE Jordan Reed, in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Roberts might be undrafted in most fantasy formats, but he could be an early-season waiver wire gem if he gets off to a good start and the Washington offense clicks out of the gate.

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 11:40:52 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon thinks he and WR DeSean Jackson can become the top receiving duo in the league this season. "That's our goal -- to unseat (Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall)," Garcon said. "But I guess last year their stats were the top two receivers on the same team -- to be up there in the top 10 category for catches and yards or however they play it out. They are two good receivers, but we'll be up there next year fighting for that position."

Redskins | DeSean Jackson, Robert Griffin building chemistry

Thu, 29 May 2014 13:00:08 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson and QB Robert Griffin III continue to build chemistry during organized team activities this week. "Our chemistry right now is a work in progress," said Jackson, who tweaked his left hamstring and sat out part of practice but said afterward he was fine. "The more we get out here and keep working and staying after practice and running routes and getting our timing down, I think sooner or later we'll be in great shape."

Fantasy Tip: If RGIII can stay healthy all year, the production that both of these players can have is scary. Jackson should continue to be a productive WR2 with more value in PPR leagues.
