Redskins | Washington WRs dilemma ahead?

Tue, 12 Jan 2016 12:03:26 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is due $3.75 million and WR Pierre Garcon $7.6 million in 2016 -- the final year in each of their contracts. Each receiver is entering their age-29 season.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson dealt with a hamstring injury for most of the first half of 2015 and was limited to 30 catches -- his worst in eight NFL seasons. Garcon has evolved into much more of a possession receiver for Washington since posting a career-high 113 catches in 2013. With TE Jordan Reed taking on more of a starring role for the Redskins this year and WR Jamison Crowder showing well in his rookie year, the team could opt to move on from Jackson and Garcon at the end of the 2016 season.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson quiet in loss

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:43:27 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was able to play in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 10, but he managed just two grabs for 17 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax nearly had a touchdown, but it was overturned in the first quarter after review showed he stepped up at the half-yard line. He finished the season banged up, but still has plenty left in the tank heading into 2016. He just needs to get healthy. The good news is Kirk Cousins emerged as a solid quarterback, and that means Jackson could still be an 800-1,000 yard producer with a handful of scores.

Redskins | Probable tag for DeSean Jackson

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 13:27:40 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) practiced in full all week and is listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) is an intriguing FantasyScore commodity with Kirk Cousins peaking for the Redskins at quarterback. Green Bay's secondary could be weakened if Sam Shields does not play, too, so choosing D-Jax for your daily lineups is a solid move.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson has full practice

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 14:40:17 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) participated fully in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The Green Bay Packers were above averaged on defense versus wide receivers this year, but Jackson ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has above average speed, too. He's one of the more expensive wide receivers on FantasyScore for the playoffs, but he's not a bad play with Kirk Cousins playing the way he has been, especially at home.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson a full go

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 14:23:04 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers secondary hasn't been bad this year, but they could surely struggle to keep D-Jax ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) from blowing the top off the secondary in the wild-card game Sunday. Jackson is a fine daily pick with Kirk Cousins as confident as ever right now.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson not targeted

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 17:20:05 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was not targeted in a 34-23 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: With Washington's playoff position already secured, there was no reason to risk Jackson re-aggravating his knee injury. Thanks to his big-play ability, he will have one of the highest ceilings at FantasyScore of any receiver available in the postseason.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson active Sunday

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 09:16:24 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) is active for Week 17's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: It is unknown how many snaps Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) will see today, since Washington has clinched the No. 4 playoff seed in the NFC and has nothing to play for this week. Avoid using him in FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 14:54:29 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as questionable for the Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: It is likely best to fade all of Washington's starters in Week 17, including Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap). They've already clinched the No. 4 seed and have nothing to play for this weekend. Jackson missed time earlier this season, too, so having him as close to 100% health as possible for the playoffs should be a priority for Washington.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited Thursday

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 14:01:39 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) and the rest of Washington's starters may not play much this week as they've already locked up the No. 4 seed, so they have nothing to play for. The normal starters may start, but they may not play too long, so look elsewhere at wide receiver on FantasyScore.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson, Matt Jones limited

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 16:26:16 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) and RB Matt Jones (hip) were both limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins cannot improve their playoff standing with a win this Sunday, so they could rest most of their starters. That makes both Jackson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) and Jones ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) extremely unpredictable and unattractive on FantasyScore.
