Redskins | DeSean Jackson confident in abilities

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 09:56:38 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is confident in his abilities and doesn't think there is a cornerback in the league that can shut him down. "I don't think no one can guard me," Jackson said. "It's how I feel about myself. I don't feel no one can stop me. You can get Darrelle Revis, Richard Sherman -- whoever you want to get." Jackson led the league last year with 13 catches for 40 yards or more, which was five catches more than any other receiver. He also averaged an NFL-best 20.88 yards per catch, which was almost three yards more than the next receiver. Jackson has averaged an NFL-best 17.68 yards per catch since entering the league in 2008, and he has 48 catches of 40 yards or more in his career, 11 more than any other receiver. Washington quarterbacks were encouraged to throw deep to Jackson more often last year, and the team wants to focus more heavily on the run this year and use more play-action setups, which could benefit Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Beware putting too much stock in Jackson and these numbers. For fantasy owners, he's ideal in standard formats. He caught just 56 passes a year ago but managed to save face with over 1,000 receiving yards because of his deep-ball prowess. D-Jax is a WR2 commodity but can frustrate owners often.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson the best at big plays?

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 18:49:07 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has 48 catches of 40-plus yards over seven seasons, and he led the NFL with 13 such catches in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson managed to amass 1,169 receiving yards last year despite just 56 catches, and while his overall production warrants WR2 consideration, he can be a boom-or-bust option from one game to the next.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson owns NFC East

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:59:48 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught nine passes for 243 yards and a score in two games against the Philadelphia Eagles last season, continuing a trend of big performances against NFC East opponents. "I'm called a Cowboy killer," Jackson said. "They call me the Cowboy killer. I'm a Giants killer, I'm a Cowboys killer, now I'm an Eagles killer, too."

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is a big-play receiver, and while he can occasionally be a boom-or-bust option, he should produce WR2 numbers when all is said and done.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon switches sides

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 07:00:57 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon ran routes as the "Z" receiver instead of the "X" receiver Wednesday, June 3. This means Garcon lines up split out on the right instead of the left. WR DeSean Jackson was the "X" receiver, and WRs Andre Roberts and Jamison Crowder rotated as the slot receiver.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax is a midrange WR2 in fantasy, but he loses some appeal in PPR leagues. He came back to his normal 56-catch range after busting out with 82 receptions in 2013. Garcon should be more involved this season, but it's hard to take him as anything more than a low-end WR3 in PPR formats.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson absence not a big deal

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 12:56:20 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's absence from organized team activities (OTAs) last week isn't too big of an issue, according to team president Bruce Allen. Jackson is expected to participate in OTAs this week.

Fantasy Tip: The OTAs are voluntary, so this doesn't seem to be a big deal, as Allen indicates. Jackson should be considered the top Washington receiver, at least in standard scoring leagues, and may see a boost in production if he and Robert Griffin III can stay on the field. Draft him as a WR2.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught a 69-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of the team's Week 17 game.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has had a solid 2014 season with five 100-yard games this season entering Week 17. It is not known where Jackson may play next season, but he likely will be selected fairly early in fantasy drafts.

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.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson will play

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 08:13:57 -0800

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

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax ($6,400; 12.8% of your cap) is a large gamble on FantasyScore today with the injury and uncertainty at quarterback. We'd look elsewhere.
