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.

Updating an earlier report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) will play Sunday, Dec. 14.

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.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson does more in practice

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).

Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited in practice

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 12:49:15 -0800

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.

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 08:34:52 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is inactive Sunday, Dec. 7.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson could be inactive

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.

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 13:43:42 -0800

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.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson still limping

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.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson returns

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 12:04:20 -0700

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.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson injures knee

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.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson fully practices

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).

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 15:37:57 -0700

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.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson a game-time decision

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 07:07:43 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will warm up before the game Sunday, Sept. 21, and will be a game-time decision.

Fantasy Tip: He's expected to play as the issue is pain management. Jackson ($6,000; 12% of your cap) is a solid WR3 option on FantasyScore if he's able to go in his "revenge game."

Redskins | DeSean Jackson to test shoulder more

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 11:15:36 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder), who was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 19, didn't look 100 percent fluid in individual drills, but he was able to catch the ball. He will work out with trainers Saturday, Sept. 20, and Sunday, Sept. 21, before the team makes a decision on whether he can play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The team remains optimistic about his chances of playing. WR Ryan Grant will receive more playing time if Jackson can't play.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's $6,000 salary at FantasyScore is a decent-sized risk, even if he does play. Will he be limited? And what are the chances of re-injury? Andre Roberts ($3,700) is a fine sleeper play if D-Jax doesn't play.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 09:42:20 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson made steps in a "positive direction," however. Jackson went through individual drills in practice Friday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: All signs currently point to Jackson playing, but you'll have to check back Sunday morning to be sure. He's a risky play at FantasyScore for $6,000 (12.0% of salary cap).

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.
