Jackson has always been one of the prototype best ball picks. He'll break through with long touchdowns peridiocally and disappear or miss other games because of injury. Having him as your WR3 or WR4 in a best ball format gives the high weekly ceiling while your depth will take the low weekly floor out of play.

Summary

DeSean Jackson joins a Tampa Bay offense where targets have been dominated by Mike Evans for two straight seasons. The secondary receiver impact has been minimal despite Jameis Winston's panache for throwing bold deep balls even into contested coverage. Jackson, despite turning 31 years old during the 2017 NFL season, offers Winston the most dangerous speed threat of his career to-date. Jackson has averaged more than 17 yards-per-catch for each of the last three seasons, including a 9.9% touchdown rate while in Washington. The target pie is crowded in Tampa Bay with Mike Evans, Cameron Brate, and Adam Humphries incumbents of 80+ targets last year and drafting O.J. Howard in Round 1 of the 2017 NFL Draft along with Jackson's signing. Jackson's pure speed and deep separation offers safety-drawing appeal to open up the entire offense. (May 20)
