Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder), who is day-to-day with a shoulder sprain, said he plans to play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source that has talked with Jackson. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson's playing status will be determined based on pain throughout the week.
Fantasy Tip: The matchup could be a good one for Jackson against the 'Skins in Week 3, but for now, it's best to plan on avoiding him for your FantasyScore lineups.

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.

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 07:41:46 -0700
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 11, and has caught three touchdown passes from QB Robert Griffin III.

Sun, 10 Aug 2014 17:27:16 -0700
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) is expected to start sprinting and cutting in the next few days, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden indicated Jackson may be able to play in the second preseason game.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson is working his way back to practice and has a chance to get back on the field this week. Jackson should be fine for the start of the regular season and probably will be a starting receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Sun, 10 Aug 2014 06:07:24 -0700
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) did not participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 10.

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 07:50:50 -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.
Wed, 06 Aug 2014 06:20:25 -0700
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) left practice with what is believed to be an ankle injury Wednesday, Aug. 6. His ankle is wrapped as he sits on the sidelines.
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.

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.
Tue, 01 Jul 2014 13:02:02 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon thinks he and WR DeSean Jackson can become the top receiving duo in the league this season.

"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."
Wed, 04 Jun 2014 12:35:13 -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.
Thu, 29 May 2014 09:25:39 -0700

Jackson's deep-threat ability opens things up in the running game, and he fits the offense well. He's better served as a WR2 in PPR leagues due to his inconsistencies. It may be hard to draft him as such after his monster year, though.
Mon, 31 Mar 2014 15:02:00 -0700
