Redskins | DeSean Jackson to receive strong interest

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 12:33:32 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson is expected to receive strong interest once free agency begins because he is still only of the fastest receivers in the NFL even though he is 30 years old.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has posted at least 1,000 yards in three of the last four seasons and has recorded four touchdowns in each of the last two seasons. Jackson should be a starting receiver for whoever he plays for in 2017 and can be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

Eagles | DeSean Jackson headed back to Philly?

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 16:23:59 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson's potential return to the Philadelphia Eagles is talked about as a "certainty" by several teams, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson can be a little too dependent on big plays at times, and regardless of where he plays in 2017, he should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward WR3.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson open to returning

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 15:09:15 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson said he would like to re-sign with the Redskins this offseason but will accept the best offer he receives in free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will receive interest from multiple teams once free agency begins, so the Redskins may not able to re-sign him. Jackson is coming off a terrific 2016 season and likely will be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for a team next season. Owners in fantasy leagues can consider Jackson a No. 3 receiver for their teams.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson too inconsistent

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 18:23:33 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson is viewed as too inconsistent by the front office.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was already expected to test the market, and it doesn't sound like Washington is interested in bringing him back. Jackson tends to live or die with big plays, and he will be a boom-or-bust WR3 wherever he lands in 2017.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson to test free agency

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 07:50:53 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson intends to test the open market in free agency.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax has been linked to the Philadelphia Eagles, but he is what he is at this point. He's a deep threat that is better served in non-PPR leagues. He'll be a WR3 option in fantasy.

Chiefs | Andy Reid raves about Tyreek Hill

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 21:54:40 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has a unique blend of speed and quickness, according to head coach Andy Reid, and Reid compared Hill to Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Hill is electric with the ball in his hands, and he has scored a touchdown of 65 yards or more in four consecutive games. The Chiefs are committed to giving him touches, making Hill a high-upside WR2 as long as Kansas City is alive in the postseason.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson likely done in Washington

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 09:40:49 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson may have "worn out his welcome" in the nation's capital, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: Part of that worn-out welcome may be the result of Jackson's reported desire to return to the Philadelphia Eagles. The 30-year-old speedster remains one of the league's top vertical threats and topped 1,000 yards receiving for the fifth time in 2016. Given his skill set and the Eagles' need for a receiver, a reunion in Philadelphia would qualify as one of the least surprising developments in the NFL this spring if it comes to fruition.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson practices in full again

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 14:10:06 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (jaw) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: He's not even listed on the injury report, so there's no question that Jackson will be out there in Sunday's season finale. With the Redskins still trying to lock up a playoff berth in the final week, expect Jackson to see his usual healthy number of targets. He's been one of the hottest receivers in the NFL as of late, having logged three consecutive 100-yard performances. The former Eagle definitely deserves strong consideration as your WR2 this weekend.
