Summary

DeSean Jackson has a lot to prove entering his ninth season coming off his worst season as a pro. The good news is that Jackson hasn't lost his game-breaking deep speed as evidenced by his 17.6 yards per reception. The bad news is Jackson missed five games and set career lows for targets (49), receptions (30) and yards (528). Unlike teammate Pierre Garcon, Jackson has been a true difference maker for most of his career when healthy. Even if Jackson's role downshifts a bit entering his latter years in the league, he still adds a much needed dimension to the Washington offense. Without Jackson's presence, the team is ill suited to keep defenses from stacking the box. With Jackson, Kirk Cousins was more efficient and the team was able to field a less predictable, more balanced attack. (May 19)
