News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 15): Jackson played in Week 15, but he had little impact on the game. He could be a decent desperation play in deeper leagues in Week 16 because of the Philadelphia matchup and Robert Griffin III likely starting, but this has been a disappointing year for Jackson
General News (Wed Dec 17): hasn't been the same the last few weeks while working through his leg injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Jackson has almost 1,000 yards receiving and five touchdowns in 13 games this year, despite dealing with injuries. Gruden said Jackson doesn't always force opposing defenses to shift their coverage, but he often times draws the other team's best cornerback.

2014 Week 13 vs IND (6 / 5 / 84 / 1 rec)
DeSean Jackson turned in a very productive performance before exiting the game in the second half with what looked to be a bad leg injury. Jackson was second to TE Jordan Reed in yards and targets and was able to haul in a long TD pass from Colt McCoy in the third quarter when he made a nice adjustment on an underthrown pass up the left sideline. Jackson was lined up all over the formation and seemed to benefit from lighter coverage as Garcon garnered most of the attention. Jackson's injury came on an incomplete pass deep down the left sideline where Jackson drew a pass interference. He immediately fell to the ground clutching his knee.
2014 Week 15 vs NYG (8 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
DeSean Jackson and the entire receiving corps struggled in the Robert Griffin led offense. Jackson was only able to turn his team leading eight targets into 15 yards as Griffin never really threatened down the field. Jackson's lone deep target was way off target and thrown into double coverage. He didn't look too troubled by his lower leg injury that kept him out the previous game, but Jackson and RG3 look out of synch at the moment.

Gruden said Jackson doesn't always force opposing defenses to shift their coverage, but he often times draws the other team's best cornerback. Our View: Gee, ya think? Jackson had three catches for 15 yards in Week 15 as he continues to deal with this shin injury. He hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 9, and fantasy owners need to consider Jackson nothing more than a low-end WR3/flex play.
