2020 RTSports Outlook

A core muscle injury kept Jackson out nearly all season. A return to the Eagles was supposed to be a real positive for Jackson, but injury issues were his downfall once again. He was setup for big things, having eight catches for 154 yards and two touchdowns the first game of the season. He had just one catch and played two more games the rest of the season after Week 1. Jackson has failed to top 800 yards three straight seasons. He has five 1,000-yard seasons for his career. Jackson is 33 years old and hasn't played a full season since 2013. He is showing signs of slowing down. Jackson still has great speed and the ability to break a big play every time he touches the ball. He also has good hands and does well when getting a chance to carry the ball. Fantasy Outlook: Jackson might have some huge games but will disappear in others. He is a hard guy for fantasy teams to trust. He is more of a spot play. Jackson can get around 40 catches for 600 yards with three or four scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has missed 19 games over the past three seasons, but has shown to still be the same old DeSean Jackson whenever he's on the field. He had core surgery last season and is said to be at 100 percent health now, he was even rumored to have a chance to play if the Eagles had advanced further in the playoffs. The team added to their wide receiver room significantly through trades and the draft, but Jackson will still certainly have a role if he's on the field. He's the deep/speed threat the Eagles offense was clearly missing last season, and should still put up strong numbers if he can stay off the trainer's cart.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Friday that they fined wide receiver DeSean Jackson "for conduct detrimental to the team," which included controversial posts on Instagram and sharing an image of a quote falsely attributed to Adolf Hitler earlier this week. Jackson has since offered multiple apologies, but he "must also commit to supporting his words with actions" in order to remain with the team. The 33-year-old missed all but three games in 2019 because of an injury and is now desperately trying to repair his image before the season. If healthy, D-Jax should be the team's primary deep threat, but as usual, he'll be a boom-or-bust WR3 for fantasy owners.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has been fined an undisclosed amount by the team for conduct detrimental to the team. The team said they intend to keep Jackson on the roster.

Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players may want to keep an eye on the situation to see if anything changes with Jackson. He is expected to be one of the starting receivers for the Eagles and could be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous story, Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson apologized to team owner Jeff Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman Tuesday, July 7. The team told him he needs to be active to promote equality.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson could be nearing the end of his time with the team for anti-Semitic comments he recently posted on one of his social media accounts. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the team's decision to keep Jackson on the roster could come down to whether or not the nature of the posts he made is a 'default' under his contract. Schefter, who also reports Jackson is guaranteed $4.8 million in salary in 2020 and has already received a $2 million option bonus, suggests the Eagles could try to figure out a way to recoup his guaranteed salary first before parting ways with the receiver.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson got himself into trouble with several anti-Semitic messages on his Instagram and could see himself released from his contract because of it. Jackson claims he feels no hatred toward the Jewish community, but he posted a quote attributed to Adolf Hitler and tried to say it was taken "the wrong way." The official statement by the Eagles said, "We are continuing to evaluate the circumstances and will take appropriate action." ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Jackson has already received a $2 million player option this year and has $4.8 million guaranteed. His release could come down to whether or not the Eagles are able to get their money back. If Jackson does end up released, Alshon Jeffery and Marquise Goodwin would benefit the most.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has been targeted 20 yards or more downfield 34 percent since 2015 - the highest mark in the league over that span (minimum 200 targets).

From TheHuddle

Jun 21 5:43pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is in 'the best shape of his life,' according to Adam Caplan of the Inside the Birds podcast.

Fantasy Spin: While these kinds of reports are always nice to see to confirm where a player is in his return from injury, they are a dime a dozen during the offseason. Durability has always been Jackson's biggest bugaboo. If he can play 12 to 14 games this season, he will almost certainly be one of the best value picks in fantasy. The odds of him doing that is exactly why he isn't going to go until the middle or late rounds of most drafts.

From TheHuddle

Jun 8 4:13pm ET

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is expected to be the top receiving threat this upcoming season if he is able to stay healthy, according to NJ.com's Mike Kaye.

Fantasy Spin: Jackson dealt with injuries last season but is a deep threat in the passing game when healthy. Fantasy players should keep an eye on him during training camp because he could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he is healthy.

From TheHuddle

May 23 12:43pm ET

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.

Mar 6 12:30pm ET

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.
