From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 17): Things are getting snippy in the organization that Jackson plays in, but he has nothing to do with it. Still, his fantasy owners would like to see a functioning offense and a head coach and QB that aren't warring in the press. Jackson is going to be a shaky start from here on out despite excellent play and production with numerous QBs this year.

Week 12: at San Francisco 49ers

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Robert Griffin III's return to action has juiced up Alfred Morris' production in the rushing phase of the game, but the Washington passing attack remains problematic with Griffin in the game. He threw 23/32 for 207 yards, one TD and two interceptions against the Tampa Bay defense last week (ranked 30th in the NFL this year averaging 266.1 net passing yards allowed per game - Washington had 167 net passing yards last week after subtracting six sacks for -40 yards). Running back Roy Helu led the team in receiving with six targets for 6/57/1, and Morris hauled in 2/36/0 to place second on the team last week. That left DeSean Jackson (six targets for 4/35/0 receiving) and Pierre Garcon (two for 1/6/0) with another disappointing week of production against an easy opponent. Jordan Reed had three passes for 2/22/0. Griffin just can't seem to get this system operating smoothly, friends. The 49ers pass D is ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 220.2 net passing yards generated per game, with 18 passing scores given up vs. 16 interceptions (first in the NFL) and 17 (tied-25th) sacks generated to date. Aldon Smith managed two quarterback hits in his return to NFL action last week, but didn't record a sack at New York. Eli Manning threw five interceptions to the 49ers last week, though, while taking two sacks for -15 yards on they way to 22/45 for 265 net yards passing, and one TD throw. Drew Brees was intercepted twice two games ago, sacked twice for -5 yards, and finished the game with 28/47 for 287 net yards and three TDs thrown. As you can see, the 49ers are giving up more yards than usual of late, but they are also notching a lot of interceptions to balance that out. This looks like a tough matchup for the visiting Griffin and company.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs MIN (7 / 4 / 120 / 1 rec)

DeSean Jackson has been QB-proof all season, finding success and making big plays regardless of who is behind center. Jackson turned in his fourth 100 yard receiving game in five weeks and fifth on the season, demonstrating not only his elite deep speed, but also his toughness. Jackson's first reception of the game came on a deep flag route where the receiver had to extend for the catch while taking a nasty helmet-to-helmet shot from the corner. Jackson held onto the ball and bounced up without any sign of injury for the huge gain. Jackson caught another long pass from Griffin in the fourth quarter streaking down the right sideline and was one tackle away from scoring a huge TD. Jackson's TD reception came in the third quarter on a slant thrown high where Jackson had to make a leaping catch and spin out of a huge hit to barely cross the plane. Jackson's reputation as a purely downfield receiver finally should be put to rest after his consistent production all over the field this season.

2014 Week 11 vs TB (6 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)

DeSean Jackson had his first sub-100 yard game since week 7. Jackson tied RB Roy Helu Jr. for team lead in targets but was unable to haul in his typical weekly big play. He almost delivered on a play where he split two defenders and raced into the endzone, but he was overthrown on a rocket pass from RG3 that fell five feet in front of him. Jackson did most of his damage catching passes near the LOS where he showed off his quickness weaving and cutting in space to help keep the chains moving. Jackson was shaken up in the third quarter after taking a hard shot to the head, but he was able to bounce up and continue playing.
