Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson to occasionally return punts

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 09:23:43 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson will return punts moving forward, but head coach Dirk Koetter said the team will be selective when to use him in that role.

Fantasy Tip: In other words, Jackson will not be the primary punt returner, but he will be asked to field a punt when the team could use a big play on special teams. It's unlikely to result in more than 10 or 15 returns per season, but it could serve as a small boost to his fantasy value in return-yardage leagues. Jackson should be able to maintain his WR3 value in Tampa Bay.

Buccaneers | Big money for DeSean Jackson

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 19:37:36 -0800

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson's deal is for three years and is worth $33.5 million with $20 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will add a big-play weapon to Tampa Bay's offense, and he should help Jameis Winston make another leap forward. Jackson could still be boom or bust from one game to the next, but he has enough upside to grab as a WR3.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson officially signs with Bucs

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 14:53:19 -0800

Free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Redskins) officially signed to a three-year, $35 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson joins Mike Evans for a dynamic deep-threat duo for Jameis Winston to throw to. Evans will still be Winston's go-to target, but Jackson will be able to open up the field for the Buccaneers and will ideally make the offense better as a whole. There's reason to be excited about Jackson in his new uniform, but he should not be viewed as more than a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson expected to Bucs

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 05:37:19 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson is expected to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is coming off a 56-1,005-4 season in a powerful offense. Those numbers aren't bad, but more was expected when he left Philadelphia after a career year in 2013. Jackson has upside as a WR3 with Mike Evans commanding so much attention on one side.

Redskins | WAS, DeSean Jackson expected to part ways

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 19:12:46 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson and the team are expected to part ways, multiple people with knowledge of the situation have indicated. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys have all inquired about the wide receiver, and "barring any unforeseen circumstances," Jackson will not be in Washington next season.

Fantasy Tip: This has been the anticipated result of Jackson's free-agency journey, with the only question being just where he'll end up. The Buccaneers have emerged as the early frontrunners for a variety of reasons, but the other teams mentioned could make an interesting case as well to land the nine-year veteran. Regardless of where he plays, Jackson will still have WR2 potential.

Buccaneers | Strong 'belief' DeSean Jackson signs w/ TB

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 15:07:56 -0800

Impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Redskins) is expected to land a contract that will pay him close to $12 million annually, and the among league personnel at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine is that Jackson will sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Fantasy Tip: Pauline cites strong-armed Jameis Winston, the warm weather and no state income tax as reasons Jackson will find the Bucs attractive. It would be a huge get for Tampa Bay, as defenses would have to think twice about tilting their coverages toward Mike Evans with one of the league's best deep threats on the other side. While Jackson would probably remain a boom-or-bust WR3 and Evans might take a slight hit, Winston would shoot right up into fantasy QB1 territory.

Redskins | Washington to talk to own FAs at combine

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:28:12 -0800

The Washington Redskins have yet to engage in talks with any of their players with expiring contracts - a list that includes impending free agents WR Pierre Garcon, WR DeSean Jackson, TE Vernon Davis, DE Chris Baker. However, multiple sources report the Redskins expect to meet with the representatives of their impending free agents at the NFL Scouting Combine next week.

Fantasy Tip: It's a common practice for front office personnel and player reps to discuss contracts at the combine, although Washington is making an already very long week even longer by handling its business in this manner. Garcon and Jackson are each expected to command at least $9 million in their next contracts, so both players could be on different teams next season. It's a virtual certainty at least one will not come back.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston likes DeSean Jackson to TB

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:58:09 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he would love if the Buccaneers signed Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market and would make a solid tandem in Tampa Bay with Mike Evans. Jackson will have a solid role in an offense in 2017 and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson wants to play with great QB

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 19:07:07 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson said that if he leaves the team in free agency, he wants to play with a "great quarterback." When asked about QB Kirk Cousins, he referred to him as "great" as well.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has also been linked to the Eagles and Buccaneers, both led by young quarterbacks who have the potential to be great one day, but with Jackson entering the latter portion of his career, he might prefer to stick with a more established option like Cousins. Despite being 30 years old, Jackson proved this past season he still has more than enough left in the tank, and can still offer solid value depending on where he ends up in 2017.

Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson could draw Bucs' interest

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 08:48:24 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson could receive interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources. Jackson has a rapport with QB Jameis Winston.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson would benefit from elite receiver Mike Evans anchoring one side. D-Jax just turned 30, and he is a better option in non-PPR formats. In such, he'd make a low-end WR3.

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 | WAS has not talked with DeSean Jackson

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 09:24:19 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson has not talked with the team about new contract at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is expected to test the free-agent market this offseason and may not be back with the Redskins in 2017. He should receive interest from several teams and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues depending on his team.

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.

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 10:01:01 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (jaw) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should be one of the top targets for the Redskins this week after he recorded at least 100 yards in four of the last five games. He should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 in fantasy leagues.

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 12:59:05 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (jaw) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should be fine for the Week 17 game and should see a solid amount of targets during the game. He has recorded at least 100 yards in four of his last five games and should be considered a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson also day-to-day

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 13:20:34 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (jaw) is day-to-day, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins will be out of playoff contention if the Detroit Lions win Monday. If that's the case then Washington may choose to rest Jackson in Week 17. Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garcon would be decent starting options with Week 17 fantasy championships on the line if Jackson is sidelined.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson suffers jaw contusion

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 07:26:08 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (jaw) left Week 16's game against the Chicago Bears after suffering a jaw contusion, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson had five receptions for 114 yards in the first half before exiting Saturday's game. If he is healthy enough to face the New York Giants in Week 17, he is worthy of consideration as a WR3 despite the somewhat challenging matchup.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson goes over 100 again

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 16:56:14 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson finished with five receptions for 114 yards in Week 16 versus the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: All of his production came in the first half. Since returning from injury on Nov. 20, Jackson has topped the century mark in four times. He appears to be as healthy as he has in some time and is making a case to land a pretty substantial contract in free agency this offseason. Jackson will be a high-upside WR3 next week despite a difficult matchup against the New York Giants.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson hits the century mark

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 22:09:50 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson rushed seven times for 111 yards on 10 targets in the Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson had a couple of reviews go in his favor, as he made nice sliding catches along the sidelines that were called incomplete on the field. Fantasy owners were more than pleased to see the calls go their way.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson over 100 yards with a bang

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 15:16:59 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson finished with 102 yards on three catches, one of which was an 80-yard touchdown pass, in a win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is still a strong WR1 candidate. He happened to have a big touchdown that helped in the Redskins' victory. Jackson and QB Kirk Cousins have formed a solid rapport.

Eagles | DeSean Jackson may be FA target for Philly

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 10:02:58 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is expected to be pursued by the Philadelphia Eagles when he is a free agent this offseason, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should receive interest from multiple teams if he becomes available this offseason. He likely would be one of the starting receivers if he joins the Eagles since he would be familiar with the offense. Jackson probably will be a No. 3 receiver no matter where he plays next season.

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 17:56:24 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was able to post 118 yards in the last game and has two touchdowns in the last two games. He will be facing a tough Arizona Cardinals defense but can still be a flex option in most leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson logs full practice

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 19:36:31 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson tends to be an all-or-nothing fantasy play, but with touchdowns in back-to-back games, he could be worth the gamble as a WR3 in Week 13.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson ready to play

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 12:39:08 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 12 game.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should see his normal workload this week and will have a role in the passing game. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues, but owners in most leagues probably will be able to find better options to use.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson listed as questionable

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 12:20:44 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson should have a good chance to play this week since he fully participated in practice Wednesday. He has been fairly consistent over the last several weeks but has not posted more than 55 yards in the last six games. Owners on deeper leagues could consider Jackson as a flex option, but he probably can be passed over in most leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited Tuesday

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 09:24:46 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) took part in a limited practice Tuesday, Nov. 22.

Fantasy Tip: There doesn't appear to be any real concern about Jackson missing Week 12 versus the Dallas Cowboys, but he is on the verge of falling off the fantasy map regardless. The 29-year-old snapped a five-game streak without a touchdown on Sunday night, which also marked the first time since Week 3 he posted a double-digit fantasy-point effort in PPR leagues. The Cowboys have been mostly stingy against receivers this year, so treat Jackson as a low-upside WR4 on Thanksgiving.

Redskins | Limited participation for DeSean Jackson

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 15:33:09 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 21.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins did not practice Monday, so Jackson's participation is an estimation. He was able to record 51 yards and one touchdown in the last game and will see a decent amount of targets in Week 12. Owners in deeper leagues can consider Jackson a flex option this week.

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 16:48:39 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active for the Week 11 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will be working against a banged up and porous Green Bay secondary, so it should be a successful return to the lineup for D-Jax and his fantasy owners.

Sat, 19 Nov 2016 09:38:45 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 11 even though he is listed as questionable, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was not able to play in Week 10 because of the injury but appears to be feeling better this week. He should have a solid role in the passing game but has not posted great numbers recently. Jackson could be a flex option in deeper leagues but can be avoided in most leagues.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson gets in full practice

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 13:07:50 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Officially, he's listed as questionable for Week 11, but this is great progress from the veteran wide-out, after getting in two limited sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. Jackson is clearly trending in the right direction, and it looks like he'll be able to suit up on Sunday evening, though waiting it out could also be a bit of a risk if he ends up on the sidelines again like last week. Still, Jackson figures to be worth it, with a salivating matchup on tap against Green Bay's hobbled defense.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable for Week 11

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 11:51:58 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: With the Redskins playing Sunday night and Jackson doing next to nothing in fantasy this season, owners can feel free to keep him on the bench or cut bait in leagues with shallow benches. Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder should be in play for owners against the Packers' struggling defense, while Jordan Reed could see even more targets than usual.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited again

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 13:33:42 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson appears to be genuinely questionable for Week 11 after being sidelined in Week 10. If he's limited tomorrow then his status will need to be checked right before kickoff this weekend. If Jackson can't play again then Jordan Reed, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder should all see more looks in a favorable matchup versus the Green Bay Packers.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was not able to play in the last game because of the injury, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He will have a role in the passing game if he is active for Week 11 but should only be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) has not been ruled out for Week 11 at this point, but head coach Jay Gruden said the team is not sure if Jackson can play.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was not able to play and probably will miss another game if his shoulder does not show improvement. Owners in all leagues probably should look for other options to use even if Jackson plays in Week 11.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson could miss multiple games

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 06:53:39 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is likely to miss Week 11's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to a source. He has already been ruled out for Week 10's game versus the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Although this is disappointing news, a recent MRI exam revealed that there is no major structural damage in Jackson's left rotator cuff. WRs Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garcon should see more targets in his absence but neither player should be considered as anything more than a WR3 or flex option.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson ruled out

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 07:05:59 -0800

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was ruled out for Week 10 due to some issues with his rotator cuff in his left shoulder. Jackson had an MRI Thursday, Nov. 10, which revealed no serious structural damage.

Fantasy Tip: Pierre Garcon could see a few more targets against the Minnesota Vikings this week. However, his upside is severely limited with a 36-396-1 line on the season, and he's a lackluster flex option.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson not practicing

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 11:22:09 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was not participating during the media access portion of practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's status for Week 10 will not be known until later in the week, so owners should monitor the situation. He has not posted more than 55 yards in any of his last five games but has been targeted at least seven times in four of those games. Owners may want to look for healthier options to use in their lineups.
