Eagles | DeSean Jackson thinks he will do well in offense

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.
