From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 29): Jackson looked more like a player limited by a shoulder injury and bad quarterbacking against the Giants. Kirk Cousins is going to hold back Jackson's value and Seattle is bad matchup, so Jackson probably belongs on your bench this week.

Week 5: vs Seattle Seahawks

Detailed matchup analysis coming soon.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs JAX (2 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)

Desean Jackson was only able to haul in one pass on the day before he exited the game with a left shoulder injury when he was driven into the turf on an incomplete throw from Kirk Cousins. Jackson was unable to hold onto a beautiful deep pass from Robert Griffin earlier in the game, but caught the pass thrown to him on the play that RG3 injured his ankle. Jackson looked like he may have been in for a big game against Jacksonville's poor secondary before his injury forced him out for the day.

2014 Week 3 vs PHI (11 / 5 / 117 / 1 rec)

Desean Jackson entered the contest questionable to suit up for the game nursing a sore shoulder, but the speedy WR clearly wasn't going to miss the opportunity to show his former team just what they let go. Jackson incited an USC penalty on the opening drive after catching a pass and taking a shove from Nate Allen, demonstrating his willingness to take hard shots and continue to fight. Worries that Jackson would not fit in with a Cousins offense were unfounded, as Jackson demonstrated his ability to work the speed out routes effectively while still receiving his share of downfield targets from a confident Kirk Cousins. Jackson got his revenge by catching an 81 yard TD bomb in the third quarter. Jackson pulled away from a trailing defender on a deep post up the middle of the field and Cousins unleashed a beautiful pass that traveled over 45 yards in the air. The slippery receiver then shed a diving tackle and raced into the endzone, taunting and backpedaling for the final 5 yards.

2014 Week 4 vs NYG (4 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

It was a lost game for DeSean Jackson as Washington was blown out by the rival Giants. Jackson struggled to take advantage of minimal opportunities as he dropped an on-target screen pass and juggled an intermediate out route as he toe-tapped along the sidelines. While those two plays would have still kept Jackson well less than 50 yards on the day, they were plays left on the field. Teammate Pierre Garcon was targeted more frequently on deep routes, with no success this week.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson active (Thu Sep 25, 07:07 PM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active Thursday, Sept. 25, against the Washington Redskins.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson likely will play (Thu Sep 25, 11:48 AM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will test his injured shoulder before the game but is expected to play in Week 4.

Our View: If he's active you have to have him in your lineups. D-Jack can be streaky which makes him less reliable as a WR2 but he'll hover in that low-end WR2/high-end WR3 range most weeks, this one included.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable (Wed Sep 24, 01:41 PM) - Correcting an earlier report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Our View: Um, okay. It sounds like Jackson may be able to go on Thursday night after all. Fantasy owners need to have a different plan in place just in case.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson ruled out (Wed Sep 24, 01:32 PM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 4.

Our View: Jackson played through this shoulder injury last week because he was against his former team. Washington is on a short week as they play against the Giants on Thursday night. Without Jackson we could see more targets for Pierre Garcon and Niles Paul. **UPDATE - this report has now been updated to say he's listed as questionable.

Giants | Rogers-Cromartie to cover DeSean Jackson (Tue Sep 23, 04:44 PM) - New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is likely to cover Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson in Week 4 Thursday, Sept. 25.

Our View: Rodgers-Cromartie's speed will match up well against Jackson. Last year, when DRC was with the Broncos, he held Jackson to only two catches for 34 yards in Week 4.
