Summary

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly called releasing DeSean Jackson a 'football decision.' Yet, it's hard to understand what Coach Kelly meant when you consider Jackson led the Eagles in receiving yards (1,332), receptions (82) and touchdowns (9). In spite of his size (5'9", 169 lbs.) Jackson has proven to be one an elite game-breaker. Division rival Washington was more than happy to disagree with the Eagles, signing Jackson to a 3-year, $24mm deal with $16mm in guarantees. He'll pair up with Pierre Garcon (who led the NFL in receptions last year) to give Robert Griffin III the best receiving tandem of his career. When Jackson is on the field, he'll be a borderline fantasy WR1. The only cause for concern is his size and history of concussions. (May 25)

Redskins | DeSean Jackson expects to play (Mon Aug 11, 01:03 PM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) said he believes he will play in the second preseason game. Jackson sat out the first preseason game because of an ankle injury but felt good during practice Monday, Aug. 11.

Our View: We wouldn't worry about Jackson's missed time or injury. If Robert Griffin's head is right and the offensive line is adequate, Jackson should have plenty of long plays this year.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson returns with a bang (Mon Aug 11, 10:41 AM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 11, and has caught three touchdown passes from QB Robert Griffin III.

Our View: Damn son! Jackson is a big-play weapon with the speed to stretch the field. It looks like his ankle injury is not bothering him at all today. Jackson has a current ADP of WR24 (5.05) in 12-team PPR leagues. The biggest issue to Jackson unlocking his value this year is the Washington offensive line giving Griffin time to throw downfield, and Griffin having his confidence restored.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson could be ready for game (Sun Aug 10, 08:27 PM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) is expected to start sprinting and cutting in the next few days, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Our View: The team needs to be cautious with their speedy wide receiver. Gruden indicated Jackson may be able to play in the second preseason game.
