Summary

DeSean Jackson played with a chip on his shoulder in his first season in Washington, and was one of the lone bright spots on a sputtering offense. Jackson led the team with 1,169 yards (his 4th career 1,000-yard season) and averaged a league-leading 20.9 yards per reception. His small size and concussion history have taken a bit off Jackson's overall game; he's not going to make tough catches over the middle anymore. That doesn't matter much to fantasy owners though as Jackson remains one of the league's fastest receivers and can beat any defensive back when singled up on the outside. Considering what he did last year in spite of having three sub par quarterbacks, it shouldn't matter who wins the QB camp competition. Jackson remains a solid fantasy WR2 provided that his shoulder dislocation in early preseason doesn't linger. (August 16)

Redskins | DeSean Jackson may not play Saturday (Tue Aug 25, 05:06 PM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's (shoulder) chances of playing Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Baltimore Ravens are pretty slim, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Jackson has been dealing with a shoulder sprain.

Our View: It's funny how they team is cautious with Jackson, but willing to watch Robert Griffin III get crushed behind that horrible offensive line for a quarter and a half. Almost makes you wonder how much head coach Jay Gruden wants Griffin there. Washington knows what Jackson has a lot to offer of course, as do fantasy owners. We see him as a WR2/WR3, and we expect good things from him this year after he was the only good thing about last season's offense.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson limited (Mon Aug 24, 01:07 AM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) returned to practice for individual drills Sunday, Aug. 23.

Our View: Washington is going to take it easy on Jackson as he returns. Reports indicate that Jackson will be ready for the regular-season dress rehearsal (aka Week 3 of the preseason).

Redskins | DeSean Jackson probably sitting (Thu Aug 20, 06:19 PM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is not expected to play against the Detroit Lions Thursday, Aug. 20.

Our View: We hope that Jackson is OK, but will only truly worry if he misses next week, the important Week 3 game where the starters play. If healthy, we have Jackson as a low end WR2 or a very good WR3.
