Player Notes
Jan 30 3:53pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson mentioned Wednesday, Jan. 30, that he desires to play for the Los Angeles Rams, although he is under contract with the Buccaneers for one more season. Jackson played for the Washington Redskins while Rams head coach Sean McVay was the offensive coordinator there.

Fantasy Spin: It seems highly unlikely that the Rams would consider signing Jackson since they already boast what is arguably the best wide receiver corps in the NFL. Robert Woods, Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp give Jared Goff plenty of mouths to feed already, not to mention Todd Gurley. Wherever he plays, Jackson has a WR3 ceiling.

Jan 19 1:23pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson probably will not return to the Buccaneers next season even though head coach Bruce Arians hopes he stays on the roster, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson asked for a trade during the 2018 season and has not shown great chemistry with Jameis Winston. Owners should monitor the situation during the offseason to see where he will play in 2019. Jackson can still be a solid receiver for a team and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver.

Jan 18 12:43pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson said Thursday, Jan. 17, that he has yet to talk to new head coach Bruce Arians or anyone from the team about remaining in Tampa. Jackson is entering the third year of a three-year, $33.5 million contract.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson finished the season with 41 receptions for 774 yards and four TDs but did not have a scoring catch or game with more than 67 receiving yards over the second half of the season when injuries were a factor. Jackson turned 32 in December, and the Bucs can get out of the contract with no dead-money cap hit this offseason, but Arians has said he'd like Jackson back and the wideout's deep speed seems to jibe well with the new coach's offense. Stay tuned as it's easy to see this going either way.

Jan 12 12:33pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson is a player that head coach Bruce Arians wants to keep on the roster. Jackson asked for a trade during the regular season.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson started off the 2018 season strong with three 100-yard performances in the first four games but posted only 143 yards during the second half of the season. He will need to work on his chemistry with Jameis Winston if he returns to the team next season. He can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he plays well.

Dec 30 11:53am ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (Achilles') is not active for Week 17's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Dec 30 11:33am ET

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have declared DL Carl Nassib, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, CB David Rivers, TE Tanner Hudson, WR DeSean Jackson, CB Joshua Shaw and DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches inactive for Week 17.

Dec 28 9:40pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who has already expressed his interest to move on in 2019, said he would really like to return and play for the Philadelphia Eagles, according to sources. D-Jax missed four of the last five weeks of the season due to thumb and Achilles issues, but he averaged nearly 19 yards per catch when healthy. Despite three 100-yard games early in the year, Jackson was his usual boom/bust self for fantasy owners as a speedy deep threat. He just turned 32 years old and played the first six years of his career with the Eagles. Jackson will most likely be a boom/bust WR4 again next season wherever he's playing.

Dec 28 9:23pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson would really like to play for the Philadelphia Eagles next season.

Fantasy Spin: No matter where Jackson ends up, he is going to be a boom-or-bust WR3 who makes his living on big plays.

Dec 28 5:23pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (Achilles') did not practice Friday, Dec. 28 and he is listed as doubtful for Week 17 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Spin: D-Jax is a very risky fantasy play, so it's probably best to avoid him. He reportedly wants out of Tampa, so it isn't likely he'll do whatever he can to suit up for a meaningless game, especially if he wants to be somewhere else.

Dec 28 2:43pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (Achilles') and DE Carl Nassib (shoulder) did not practice all week and are listed as doubtful for Week 17 versus the Atlanta Falcons. LB Devante Bond (illness) and DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee, shoulder) were limited in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and are listed as questionable. OT Demar Dotson (knee), DE William Gholston (back) and DT Gerald McCoy (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Dec 27 6:03pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (Achilles') did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 27.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson probably will need to practice Friday, Dec. 28, if he wants a chance to play in Week 17. Owners in all leagues probably should avoid Jackson this week.

Dec 27 12:03pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson expressed an interest in moving on from the team after this season.

Fantasy Spin: Regardless of the team he's on, Jackson is a boom-or-bust WR3 in fantasy.

Dec 26 2:43pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (hand) is not practicing Wednesday, Dec. 26.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson saw just four targets in his return last week, catching one pass for 24 yards. Continue to stay away from him for fantasy purposes.

Dec 23 3:03pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) suffered a foot injury during the Week 16 game and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Spin: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see how long Jackson may miss. Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries would receive more targets if Jackson is not able to play in Week 17 and could be starting fantasy options.

Dec 23 11:53am ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (thumb) is active for Week 16's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Dec 23 8:53am ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (thumb) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging two full practice sessions and one limited session during the week. He is slated to be active for the first time since Week 12 and should be viewed as a WR4 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

Dec 21 5:43pm ET

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (thumb) practiced in full on Friday, Dec. 21 and he is listed as questionable for the Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson practiced in full for the past two days and head coach Dirk Koetter said earlier in the day that D-Jax would be active. He is worth a look as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues if active.

Dec 21 3:53pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (thumb) practiced in full for a second straight day Friday, Dec. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 16 versus the Dallas Cowboys. OT Demar Dotson (knee), DT Gerald McCoy (shoulder), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) and LB Adarius Taylor (non-injury) also fully participated in practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Dec 21 12:43pm ET

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (hand) will be active for Week 16 versus the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Dec 20 4:23pm ET

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (hand) put in a full practice Thursday, Dec. 20.
