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 | Andre Roberts might benefit from many weapons (Thu Jul 17, 10:46 PM) - Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts has admitted since the signing of WR DeSean Jackson that he might have opted to go elsewhere had he known Jackson would be signed. However, Roberts might be one of the biggest benefactors of having WRs Pierre Garcon and Jackson, as well as TE Jordan Reed, in the offense.

Our View: Roberts will get over it -- eventually. The team wanted to find a more dangerous weapon and clearly Jackson is that guy. Roberts is a better fit inside as a slot receiver anyway. He'll be able to get off the line cleanly and get downfield in a hurry. We're not expecting much from Roberts in terms of fantasy production, but put him on your waiver wire speed dial if he is more involved in the offense than most project right now.
