  • 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.

  • DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery Ruled Out For Week 4

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (foot) have both been ruled out for Sunday night against the 49ers. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (calf) is also listed as doubtful. The oft-injured Jackson has failed to impress in an offense missing Jeffery and rookie Jalen Reagor (thumb), making him droppable in standard-sized redraft leagues. Jeffery is close to making his season debut, so he may be worth an add if he's available in your league. Greg Ward Jr. and rookie John Hightower will be the team's top two receivers on Sunday night, but Ward being a sleeper flex play in deeper leagues. Tight end Zach Ertz should also be heavily targeted with Dallas Goedert (ankle) on Injured Reserve.

  • DeSean Jackson Too Risky To Start In Week 4

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson did not practice on Wednesday and is questionable at best for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Jackson didn't practice on any of the last two Wednesdays either, but this time he's coming off a hamstring injury that took him out of the game in Week 3. Even if Jackson is healthy, the Eagles offense has been an unmitigated disaster and the only real consistent piece has been running back Miles Sanders. Jackson, if healthy, is a desperation WR4/5 at best.

  • DeSean Jackson's Injury Expected To Be Minor

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is undergoing tests on his hamstring on Monday, but the belief is that he's dealing with a minor strain, according to sources. The Eagles were extra cautious with the oft-injured speedster in the Week 3 tie against the Bengals. However, his availability for Week 4 against the 49ers is up in the air this early in the week. Jackson had another disappointing week on Sunday, catching just two of his four targets for 11 yards before suffering the injury and leaving the game. The veteran wideout just hasn't taken advantage of the injuries to Alshon Jeffery and rookie Jalen Reagor. If D-Jax misses Week 4, the Eagles will really be struggling for pass-catchers after tight end Dallas Goedert also left Sunday's game with a potentially serious injury.

  • DeSean Jackson Has Some Week 3 Upside

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has some nice Week 3 upside despite the mess that has been the Eagles offense over the first two weeks of the season. Jackson hasn't done much so far this season, but the Cincinnati Bengals Defense doesn't really have anyone who can keep up with Jackson's speed. If there were ever a game for Jackson to blow up and get the Eagles passing game back on track, it's this one. All that being said, the Eagles offense was bad enough that the pre-recorded crowd noise booed them at one point in Week 2. Jackson is a solid WR3/FLEX play with upside this week.

  • DeSean Jackson Catches Six Passes In Week 2

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson caught six of his nine targets in Week 2, gaining 64 scoreless yards. The Eagles offense as a whole was a mess in this one, but Jackson was at least able to come down with the most catches and the most receiving yards on the team. A matchup with the similarly 0-2 Cincinnati Bengals awaits the Eagles next week. Something will need to change with this offensive unit, but it was encouraging for fantasy managers to see Jackson have the ball thrown his way nine times.

  • DeSean Jackson A Risky Week 2 Start

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is a risky start in Week 2 fantasy lineups. In Week 1, Jackson was targeted seven times but only caught two passes, totaling 46 yards. The Rams Defense is great at limiting deep passes, and that's where Jackson's game thrives. There's always the chance that he effectively blows the cover off a corner and scores on a deep ball, but he's also one of the wide receivers with the lowest floor, as it's just as easy to see Jackson end up catchless as it is to see him end up with a 100-yard game. He's great in best ball lineups, as he has been his whole career, but his use in more standard weekly formats is closer to that of a depth WR4/5.

  • DeSean Jackson Catches Only Two Passes in Week 1

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was targeted six times but caught only two passes in Week 1, gaining 46 yards. Jackson looked healthy, but the entire Eagles offense struggled against the Washington Football Team. He and the Eagles will hope for better results against the Rams next week, but it's hard to rely on Jackson in anything besides best ball leagues at this point.

  • DeSean Jackson Returns To Game

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (leg) limped off the field early in today's game against the Washington Football Team. He remained on the sidelines, holding his helmet, for a few drives before returning in the second quarter. It appears as if the injury wasn't anything major and he should be set to resume his role in the offense for the remainder of the game.

  • DeSean Jackson Ready For Deep Passes In Week 1

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is "as fast as ever," according to team beat writers, and will be ready for go for Week 1 against the Washington Football Team's mediocre secondary. Jackson will bring a deep threat to an Eagles team that desperately needed one last season. As he's been for most of his career (when healthy), Jackson should be a boom-or-bust receiving option in fantasy leagues. He's an excellent best-ball option, but could prove quite frustrating in weekly leagues.
