Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson average depth of target is 17.6 yards since 2015 -- the highest figure in the league by 1.6 yards over that span.
Fantasy Spin: While defensive backs struggle to keep up with D-Jax, the injury bug has caught up with the 33-year-old wideout of late as he's played in only 15 games since the start of the 2018 season. Jackson only played in three games last season in returning to Philly, and the Eagles have added speed this offseason, trading for Marquise Goodwin and drafting Jalen Reagor in the first round, and that could make Jackson expendable if he's unable to stay healthy.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (core) has pronounced himself 100 percent recovered after having core muscle surgery in November. Ill be back stronger than ever, Jackson said. D-Jax caught two 50-yard touchdown passes in the season opener last year before getting hurt in Week 2 and missing the rest of the season. The 33-year-old is tied with Randy Moss for second-most in NFL history with 32 career touchdowns of 50-plus yards. He's also eighth in Eagles history with 365 catches, is fourth with 6,276 yards and ranks ninth with 34 touchdowns. With the Eagles receiver room in flux, they need a healthy Jackson in 2020 to help stretch the field. He'll be a high-risk, high-reward, boom-or-bust fantasy wideout next season.
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (core) is reportedly 'feeling good' and 'clocking 19 miles per hour' in his rehab from the core muscle injury that landed him on the Reserve/Injured list. However, while he is expecting to rejoin the team on the field if they make the playoffs, he is not eligible to return until the divisional round.
Fantasy Spin: The Eagles will make the playoffs if they beat the New York Giants in Week 17 or if the Dallas Cowboys lose. The difficult part for Philadelphia will be advancing past the wild-card round with a skeleton crew at receiver. While Jackson would likely slot in as Carson Wentz's primary target at receiver if he is able to return, owners in fantasy playoff leagues should consider the entire scenario a longshot.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is expected to rejoin the team on the field soon if the team makes the postseason and advances to the Divisional round, according to a source. Jackson is feeling good after having core surgery, but he's not eligible to return from Injured Reserve until the second round of the playoffs. Philly must either beat the Giants in Week 17 or get a loss from the Cowboys to secure the division. Then they must win in the Divisional round, which will be a tall task with how banged up they are on offense. The 33-year-old Jackson hasn't played since Nov. 3, so it's debatable how effective he would be in the playoffs if he returned. He'd be a boom/bust DFS option as a deep threat for the Eagles if they advance that far.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (abdomen) has been running, doing some light sprinting, some light cutting and catching the football, and he could return in the second round of the playoffs if the Eagles beat the Cowboys this Sunday and win the NFC East. D-Jax underwent core surgery on Nov. 5 and is roughly six weeks removed from a surgery that was expected to take six to eight weeks to recover from. It's still all very much up in the air, and the Eagles must first make the playoffs, but it's possible that Jackson could return and give Philly's offense a much-needed boost through the air. Alshon Jeffery (foot) is done for the season and Nelson Agholor (knee) is expected to miss another game this weekend. The Eagles are forced to lean on J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward and Robert Davis against Dallas.
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is running, light sprinting and cutting as he works his way back from sports hernia surgery. He's six weeks removed from surgery in a six-to-eight-week timetable. He's not eligible to return from the Reserve/Injured list until the second week of the playoffs, but he could return if the Eagles make it that far.
Fantasy Spin: Jackson is someone to keep in mind in playoff pools or DFS, but his traditional fantasy season is obviously over.
