Redskins | DeSean Jackson may not play Saturday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:06:58 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's (shoulder) chances of playing Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Baltimore Ravens are pretty slim, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Jackson has been dealing with a shoulder sprain.

Fantasy Tip: It's important for players, especially key players like Jackson, not to take any risks so close to the regular season. Washington needs Jackson at full health for Week 1. It's encouraging that he is able to at least do individual drills, however. Consider him a WR2 in standard leagues.

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 22:07:27 -0700

Redskins | DeSean Jackson probably sitting

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 15:19:34 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is not expected to play against the Detroit Lions Thursday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson suffered a shoulder sprain a couple weeks ago, so it makes sense for the Redskins to take it easy with him before the regular season. As long as he's healthy for Week 1, he could be in WR2 territory at the end of the season in standard leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson a big deep threat

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 15:08:20 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson amassed 13 plays of at least 40 yards last year.

Fantasy Tip: No other wide receiver had more than eight such plays. Jackson is arguably the biggest deep threat in the league; it's just a matter of Robert Griffin III getting the ball to him. The downside to Jackson is that he doesn't catch a lot of passes -- he only had 56 in 2014. He'll have more value in standard leagues and should be drafted as a WR2.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson sidelined

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 12:52:11 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is not participating in practice Monday, Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: The team likely will take things easy with Jackson, so he probably will not see much time on the field for the next week or two. Jackson should see plenty of targets this season and could be an early- to middle-round option in most fantasy drafts.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson to miss a few weeks

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 10:19:02 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is expected to miss a few weeks because of Grade 2 shoulder sprain, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should have enough time to prepare for the regular season if he does not have any setbacks. Jackson posted 1,169 yards and six touchdowns last season and could do better with more consistent quarterback play from the Redskins. Jackson could be an early- to middle-round option in most leagues if he is healthy.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson confident in abilities

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 09:56:38 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is confident in his abilities and doesn't think there is a cornerback in the league that can shut him down. "I don't think no one can guard me," Jackson said. "It's how I feel about myself. I don't feel no one can stop me. You can get Darrelle Revis, Richard Sherman -- whoever you want to get." Jackson led the league last year with 13 catches for 40 yards or more, which was five catches more than any other receiver. He also averaged an NFL-best 20.88 yards per catch, which was almost three yards more than the next receiver. Jackson has averaged an NFL-best 17.68 yards per catch since entering the league in 2008, and he has 48 catches of 40 yards or more in his career, 11 more than any other receiver. Washington quarterbacks were encouraged to throw deep to Jackson more often last year, and the team wants to focus more heavily on the run this year and use more play-action setups, which could benefit Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Beware putting too much stock in Jackson and these numbers. For fantasy owners, he's ideal in standard formats. He caught just 56 passes a year ago but managed to save face with over 1,000 receiving yards because of his deep-ball prowess. D-Jax is a WR2 commodity but can frustrate owners often.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson the best at big plays?

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 18:49:07 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has 48 catches of 40-plus yards over seven seasons, and he led the NFL with 13 such catches in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson managed to amass 1,169 receiving yards last year despite just 56 catches, and while his overall production warrants WR2 consideration, he can be a boom-or-bust option from one game to the next.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson owns NFC East

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:59:48 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught nine passes for 243 yards and a score in two games against the Philadelphia Eagles last season, continuing a trend of big performances against NFC East opponents. "I'm called a Cowboy killer," Jackson said. "They call me the Cowboy killer. I'm a Giants killer, I'm a Cowboys killer, now I'm an Eagles killer, too."

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is a big-play receiver, and while he can occasionally be a boom-or-bust option, he should produce WR2 numbers when all is said and done.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon switches sides

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 07:00:57 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon ran routes as the "Z" receiver instead of the "X" receiver Wednesday, June 3. This means Garcon lines up split out on the right instead of the left. WR DeSean Jackson was the "X" receiver, and WRs Andre Roberts and Jamison Crowder rotated as the slot receiver.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax is a midrange WR2 in fantasy, but he loses some appeal in PPR leagues. He came back to his normal 56-catch range after busting out with 82 receptions in 2013. Garcon should be more involved this season, but it's hard to take him as anything more than a low-end WR3 in PPR formats.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson absence not a big deal

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 12:56:20 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's absence from organized team activities (OTAs) last week isn't too big of an issue, according to team president Bruce Allen. Jackson is expected to participate in OTAs this week.

Fantasy Tip: The OTAs are voluntary, so this doesn't seem to be a big deal, as Allen indicates. Jackson should be considered the top Washington receiver, at least in standard scoring leagues, and may see a boost in production if he and Robert Griffin III can stay on the field. Draft him as a WR2.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson makes big play

Sun, 28 Dec 2014 10:14:23 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught a 69-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of the team's Week 17 game.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has had a solid 2014 season with five 100-yard games this season entering Week 17. It is not known where Jackson may play next season, but he likely will be selected fairly early in fantasy drafts.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson reaches 1k

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 14:25:52 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson surpassed the 1,000-yard receiving mark Saturday, Dec. 20.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax slipped behind the coverage for a 51-yard reception early in the first half. He leads all receivers with two catches for 58 yards with 8 minutes left in the first half.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson hasn't been at his best

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 10:54:32 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) hasn't been the same the last few weeks while working through his leg injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Jackson has almost 1,000 yards receiving and five touchdowns in 13 games this year, despite dealing with injuries. Gruden said Jackson doesn't always force opposing defenses to shift their coverage, but he often times draws the other team's best cornerback.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,200) should be fine to play against the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend. In their first meeting, D-Jax had five catches (11 targets) for 117 yards and a touchdown. Expect the best to come out in him again as he faces his old team, but temper your expectations a bit, since he's probably not close to full health yet.

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 08:42:35 -0800

Updating earlier reports, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is active Sunday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax ($6,400; 12.8% of your cap) isn't a gamble we'd make today on FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson 50-50 this week

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 13:34:56 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is 50-50 to play in Week 15, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,400; 12.8% of your cap) is probably too risky of a play on FantasyScore with an offense in disarray.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson looked better in practice

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 16:37:54 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) looked good running routes in individual drills Friday, Dec. 12, and he was able to plant hard and cut the other way. "He ran a little bit better today. So I feel pretty good about his chances, really, a little bit better and obviously better than I did last week for sure," head coach Jay Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: This obviously gives fantasy owners more hope that Jackson ($6,400) can play against the New York Giants in Week 15. Still, he'll be a fairly risky boom-or-bust option at FantasyScore if he's active.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 10:34:02 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's chances are 50-50 of playing this Sunday, so that obviously makes him a very risky play at FantasyScore for $6,400. Pierre Garcon ($4,200) and Jordan Reed ($5,200) should gain targets if Jackson sits out, with Reed probably being the safer commodity.

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 11:49:53 -0800

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 09:11:54 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) said he did more in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, but he is not where he wants to be yet.

Fantasy Tip: It is a good sign for Jackson that he was able to do more, but he is still a bit of a risky play in FantasyScore this week, especially if he is not at full strength. There are probably better options available to you for your roster.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson doing solo work

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 07:44:58 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is doing individual drills Thursday, Dec. 11. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson will need to run at full speed before he's cleared to play Sunday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,400; 12.8% of your cap) still has time to receive clearance to play the New York Giants this week and would make a mid-to-low WR3 on FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson's status up in the air

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 13:08:39 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) is 50-50 to play in Week 15 against the New York Giants, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,400) will likely be questionable and could be a game-time decision. It's safer to stay away from him at FantasyScore. With the 'Skins possibly going back to Robert Griffin III this weekend against the Giants, no receiving option for Washington is a very smart play in daily games, including Pierre Garcon ($4,200).

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Jackson was able to get some work in today is a good sign for his status. Still, he is a bit of a risky FantasyScore option, and should probably be no more than a flex option to you this week.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson's status uncertain

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 15:13:22 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's (leg) status for Week 15 is uncertain at this point, but the team hopes he will be able to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor his practice participation during the week to see if he has a chance to play this week. Jackson should be considered a risky option even if he is able to play because of the Redskins' uncertain quarterback situation. Jackson probably should not be more than a flex option this week.

Sat, 06 Dec 2014 12:40:56 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) may not be active for Week 14, according to Dianna Russini of NBC Washington. Russini said the team is planning as if Jackson will be inactive.

Fantasy Tip: If Jackson is inactive, Pierre Garcon ($3,900, 7.8%) and Jordan Reed ($5,200, 10.4%) get immediate boosts and Garcon specifically could be a nice value play on FantasyScore.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) did not practice Friday, Dec. 5, and is questionable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Jackson in FantasyScore this week. Even if he can play, he is a huge risk with the injury. Jordan Reed ($5,200) would be a smart play if Jackson sits.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson misses practice again

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 10:49:11 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) missed another practice Friday, Dec. 5.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking more likely that Jackson ($6,400) won't play against the St. Louis Rams. Avoid him at FantasyScore. Even if Jackson doesn't play, it'll be hard to trust Pierre Garcon ($3,900), who has been a monumental disappointment this year. Jordan Reed ($5,200) makes for a smart play for daily lineups if Jackson is out.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson does not practice

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 11:41:51 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson may not be able to play in Week 14 if he misses practice Friday, Dec. 5. Jackson would be facing a St. Louis Rams defense that has done fairly well over the past two weeks against wide receivers, so owners may want to avoid Jackson. Jackson costs $6,400 on FantasyScore.

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 06:20:43 -0800

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) was still visibly limping on the sidelines Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,400; 12.8% of your cap) is questionable to suit up this weekend against the St. Louis Rams. He would be a WR3/flex option on FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson not practicing

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 11:51:33 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Keep track of Jackson's progress throughout the week. If he can play, he'll cost you $6,400 (12.8% of cap) at FantasyScore, but he's facing a Seattle Seahawks defense that is hitting their stride right now, especially in the secondary. If Jackson is playing at less than 100 percent, there might be even more reason to avoid him in daily lineups.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson not expected to miss time

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 10:56:43 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's (leg) fibula contusion isn't believed to be serious, and he's not expected to miss any time, according to a source close to him.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's value takes a hit with Colt McCoy the starting quarterback. However, if D-Jax is able to suit up in Week 14 against the St. Louis Rams, he could be a sleeper option at FantasyScore. The Rams have allowed an average of 27.38 fantasy points to receivers in the last four weeks.

Redskins | X-rays negative for DeSean Jackson

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 17:34:04 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) left the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a right fibula contusion. He was helped to the sidelines in the fourth quarter and carted off to the locker room. He was limping noticeably after the game, and might be re-examined Monday, Dec. 1. However, X-rays were negative.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should check back next Friday for Jackson's official status for the Week 14 game.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson has another big game

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 18:17:13 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had four grabs for 120 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has back-to-back 100-yard games, and he has hit the century mark in four of the past five outings, while finding the end zone three times during the span. The return of Robert Griffin III from injury will only help Jackson, who has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in all leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson settling in

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 21:22:27 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had six catches on seven targets for 136 yards in Week 8, and he has topped 100 receiving yards three times in his last four games after managing just one 100-yard game in the first four games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: After a slow start with his new team, Jackson has begun making big plays down the field on a routine basis. There is always a little risk when you use a player that depends on the deep ball to produce points, but Jackson is the type of high-risk, high-reward option that can separate you from the pack at FantasyScore. He has a nice matchup on tap in Week 9 against Minnesota.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was able to return in the team's Week 7 game after missing time with a knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Jackson is only dealing with a minor injury. Jackson could be limited during practice next week but should have a good chance to play in Week 8.

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 11:01:35 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) left the team's Week 7 game because of a knee injury and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to receive a better idea of the severity of his injury. Andre Roberts could become more involved in the passing game but probably would not be more than a flex option.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson delivers big plays

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 21:09:26 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had five catches for 157 yards, including a 60-yard score, Monday, Oct. 6.

Fantasy Tip: He is a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option because of his dependency on the deep ball, but this was Jackson at his finest. He torched an excellent Seattle secondary on multiple occasions, and he remains one of the fastest players in the league. He isn't the safest pick, but he has the type of upside that can help separate you from the competition at FantasyScore.

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 15:49:43 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should be able to play in Week 5 unless he suffers a setback. Owners would have to spend $5,700 on Jackson at FantasyScore, and he could be a No. 3 wide receiver or flex option for owners.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson practices in full

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 16:01:03 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson had just one catch for a measly four yards last weekend. His injury appears to be much better, but now he'll face a Seattle Seahawks stout defense on Monday night. It's wise to avoid D-Jax everywhere.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson active

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 16:07:08 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active Thursday, Sept. 25, against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Though he is active, Jackson may still be limited to keep from aggravating his injured shoulder. Still, he has a nice matchup against a New York Giants' defense that has given up 567 receiving yards through three games to wide receivers.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson likely will play

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 08:48:44 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will test his injured shoulder before the game but is expected to play in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was able to play in Week 3 with the injury and should be on the field again for Week 4. Jackson costs $6,000 on FantasyScore this week and could be a solid option at that price if owners are willing to take the risk that he will not be limited by the injury.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 10:41:59 -0700

Correcting an earlier report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was able to put up big numbers in Week 3 and has a chance to play in Week 4 even though he continues to deal with the injury. Jackson costs $6,000 on FantasyScore this week, but could be a big risk since he will be play his second game in five days and may be limited by the injury.

Giants | Rogers-Cromartie to cover DeSean Jackson

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:44:10 -0700

New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is likely to cover Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson in Week 4 Thursday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson came alive last week against his old team in Kirk Cousins' first start. With Cousins at the helm, Jackson's value could be on the rise. Consider using him this week at FantasyScore for a price of $6,000 (12.0% of salary cap).

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited during practice Monday, Sept. 22. The team participated in a jog-through Monday.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson active today

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 08:36:11 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active Sunday, Sept. 21, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Jackson may not participate in his full amount of plays this week. Jackson ($6,000; 12% of your cap) is worthy of a WR3 spot on FantasyScore, but there is risk with his potential reward.
