DeSean Jackson
  • Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson Both Listed As Limited Monday

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (foot) and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) were both listed as limited practice participants Monday ahead of Thursdays contest versus the Giants. Both receivers were out of the equation Sunday against Baltimore, with Jackson already expected to suit up come Thursday. As for Jeffery, he would be making his season debut after working his way back from a Lisfranc injury. Having either back in the mix would be a boon for Carson Wentz, who will be without Zach Ertz (ankle) for the foreseeable future. Travis Fulgham has become a breakout fantasy sensation over the past three weeks, and while his stock would take a dip with Jeffery or Jackson back, any of the three are season-long options against a shaky Giants secondary.

  • DeSean Jackson On Track To Return For Thursday's Game

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) may be out for Sundays contest versus Baltimore, but he is apparently close enough to action that he is expected to return for Thursdays game against the Giants. Jacksons return will be a welcome addition for a wide-receiving corps that will rely on Greg Ward and Travis Fulgham against the Ravens. Throughout his career, Jackson has made numerous stellar plays against New York and figures to be an appealing flex play for those who are banking on his hamstring having healed up since he last appeared back in Week 3. The Giants secondary has been much-maligned this season, which sets Jackson up nicely for a single-game DFS look, as well.

  • Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson Ruled Out

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (foot) and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and offensive tackle Lane Johnson (ankle) have been ruled out for Week 6 against the Ravens. Jeffery has yet to play in 2020, but he's been limited in practices the last couple weeks and could make his debut in Week 7. Jackson will miss his third straight game and has developed a reputation for being a slow healer. The speedy deep threat didn't take advantage of the team being banged up at the position when he was on the field to begin the year, making him droppable in shallow leagues. Greg Ward and Travis Fulgham, who exploded for 152 yards and a touchdown last week, should continue to see increased usage. There's flex appeal in deeper leagues, but temper expectations against a stingy Ravens Defense.

  • DeSean Jackson Has A Chance To Play Sunday

    Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson is optimistic about wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) making his return in Week 6 against the Ravens. Jackson has been limited in practice this week, but he's on track to return after missing the last two games. Even if the oft-injured deep threat returns on Sunday, he'll be hard to trust against a strong Ravens Defense in an Eagles offense that just hasn't clicked all year. If Jackson and Alshon Jeffery (foot) return this week, it'll be bad news for Greg Ward, Travis Fulgham and rookie John Hightower. If active, Jackson will be an even riskier boom/bust WR4/5 in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • DeSean Jackson Very Risky If Active In Week 6

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) could return to the field in Week 6. He seemed to be trending toward a return in Week 5, getting in a series of limited practices, but was ultimately inactive. Barring any setbacks, he could get back on the field for a Week 6 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. It'll be a tough welcome back, and Jackson is always at risk for re-injury or maybe even a new one. He's a desperation play in deep leagues, but is best left on the bench even if active. He's appeared in three games this season, catching 10 passes for 121 scoreless yards.

  • Eagles Still Without DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery

    The Philadelphia Eagles offense is still in poor shape, as they are without Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson once again. Tight end Hakeem Butler -- a college wide receiver -- is inactive as well. So, it looks like another week for Greg Ward to serve as the team's primary wide receiver. Ward's a solid WR3 play this week with upside due to his projected target share.

  • DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery Ruled Out For Week 5

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (foot) have been ruled out for Week 5 against the Steelers. Cornerback Avonte Maddox (ankle) is also out. With rookie Jalen Reagor (thumb) and Dallas Goedert (ankle) on Injured Reserve, the Eagles are really hurting for pass-catchers. Greg Ward Jr. and rookie John Hightower figure to be the team's top two wideouts this Sunday, making quarterback Carson Wentz an easy fade as a QB1. Pittsburgh has actually allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to receivers in three games, but there's just not much to like here with Philly and their out-of-sync offense. At best, Ward is a flex consideration in deeper leagues, but the bar shouldn't be set very high. Jeffery is getting closer to making his season debut, while the oft-injured D-Jax is heading in the opposite direction, missing the last two games. Jackson can be dropped in standard-sized leagues.

  • DeSean Jackson Likely Too Risky To Start In Week 5

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday and will likely be listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jackson will be way too risky to start in most formats even if he gets the go-ahead from the Eagles medical team. The Eagles passing game has been struggling in general this season, and this week they get a Steelers Defense that consistently pressures opposing quarterbacks. Besides all that, Jackson will be at risk of re-injuring his hamstring. For a player that relies on speed and deep routes, the combination of a hamstring injury and a quarterback who will likely need to get rid of the ball quickly makes for a zero-floor outlook.
