Summary

Welcome home! Veteran DeSean Jackson was re-acquired in the offseason. The 11-year veteran last played for Philadelphia in 2013 and had stints with Washington and Tampa Bay since. At 33 years old, Jackson won't be asked to approximate his 82-catch, 1,332-yard, nine touchdown season from six years ago, but he will be expected to give Carson Wentz a vertical threat that was lacking last year after Mike Wallace didn't pan out. Jackson still has elite deep speed, as exhibited by his league-leading 18.9-yard average yards per reception last year. He hasn't been a top-30 fantasy receiver since 2014 and will be more helpful to Wentz than he will be to fantasy managers. In best-ball formats, his home run ability makes him worth rostering.

Eagles | DeSean Jackson more than a deep threat? (Tue Aug 13, 02:44 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is 'a complete player' who can 'do anything that he wants,' according to offensive coordinator Mike Groh. Jackson appears to be rejuvenated by his return to Philadelphia and is thrilled with head coach Doug Pederson's offense, telling NBC Sports Philadelphia's Reuben Frank that 'we got some dope stuff in this year' and the 'kind of stuff (Pederson) has up his sleeve for this offense ... is unbelievable.'

Our View: Jackson can be more than a deep threat....but he's mainly going to be the guy that stretches the field for the Eagles offense. His big-play ability make him an interesting flex play most every week. Jackson has a current ADP of WR47 (10.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
