DeSean Jackson worth using no matter who is throwing it
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(10/28/14) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson had a down performance in Week 7, but showed Monday against the Cowboys he can be a useful Fantasy option no matter who is under center for Washington.
Jackson torched the Cowboys for six receptions and 136 yards on seven targets, his third 100-yard performance in four weeks. And that came with Colt McCoy, the team's third-string quarterback, throwing him the ball. He has logged four 100-yard outings this season, though none came with Robert Griffin III under center, so his impending return might have some Fantasy owners worried.
Don't be. Jackson is clearly the best receiver in Washington's offense, and was targeted nine times in Griffin's only full game this season. The duo also hooked up for a long reception early in Week 2 before Griffin's absence, but it was overturned by replay, perhaps incorrectly.
Jackson is still one of the most dangerous deep threats in the league, and this team clearly knows how to use him properly. No matter which Redskins quarterback gets the start in Week 9 against the Vikings, Jackson should be in your starting lineup.
DeSean Jackson produces fourth 100-yard game this year
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(10/28/14) Redskins wideout DeSean Jackson was way too fast for the Cowboys' secondary Monday night. Jackson caught six of seven targets for 136 yards, his fourth 100-yard game this season.
Jackson could have scored a couple first-half touchdowns had Colt McCoy not underthrown him. Still, Jackson hauled in completions of 49 and 45 yards and averaged 22.7 yards per catch.
Jackson, who's on pace for 64 catches, 1,328 yards and six touchdowns, visits Minnesota in Week 9.
Better to sit DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(10/23/14) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been hit or miss from week to week, but you can't get around the fact that in three of the last five weeks, he's gone for more than 100 yards and a touchdown.
The problem is Kirk Cousins was his quarterback for all three of those games. The Redskins are turning to Colt McCoy for Week 8 at Dallas.
That's bad news for all the Redskins wide receivers, but especially Jackson, whose production is mostly tied to his ability to beat the defense deep. McCoy isn't one for going deep. He averaged 5.9 yards per attempt in his last year as an NFL starter, and aside from that short pass that Pierre Garcon turned into 70-yard touchdown, McCoy had 10 completions for just 58 yards in Week 7.
That doesn't mean Garcon is safe. Apart from that score, he had four catches for 17 yards in Week 7 and averaged just 27.3 yards in his previous three games. He should fare better than Jackson with McCoy, but ultimately, an inferior quarterback isn't going to do him good.
You might want to sit both in Fantasy for the time being.
Redskins' DeSean Jackson held to just under 50 yards Week 7
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/19/14) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson was held to three catches for 49 yards during a 19-17 win Week 7 vs. Tennessee. Jackson's longest catch went 37 yards and he was targeted five times.
Jackson could have had a higher yardage total Sunday, as he made a tough 36-yard catch down the sideline with 1:14 left. However, offsetting penalties negated the big play for Jackson, who had a scoring streak snapped at two games. Jackson also failed to record at least 100 yards for the first time in three games.
The Redskins are back in action Week 8 at Dallas.
Redskins WR DeSean Jackson scores long TD in Week 6 loss
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/12/14) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson managed 115 yards on just three receptions and scored a touchdown in his team's 30-20 loss to the Cardinals in Week 6.
Jackson caught his first pass early in the second quarter, hauling in the ball at midfield and outracing his man to the end zone. On the team's next drive, he brought the team down to the red zone with a 42-yard catch that set the offense up with first-and-goal at the 10-yard line, though they settled for a field goal. Jackson was quiet for most of the rest of the night, adding a five-yard run and a nine-yard reception. He's racked up 115 yards and a touchdown in three of his last four games while serving as a dangerous deep threat. Jackson will try to keep rolling next week against the Titans.
|DeSean Jackson had a career season with the Eagles in 2013, and he was rewarded for it by being cut due to apparent differences with coach Chip Kelly and management. The Redskins signed Jackson, and he will immediately become their No. 2 receiver behind Pierre Garcon and deep threat for Robert Griffin III. Jackson had career highs in catches (82) and yards (1,332) in 2013, and he matched his career high for touchdowns. His value will take a hit going to the Redskins since 2013 was the first time he was the clear-cut No. 1 option (he previously shared that role with Jeremy Maclin). We’re expecting him to post stats similar to his production prior to 2013, which was around 55 catches, 950 yards and five touchdowns on average. He should be drafted as a low-end No. 2/high-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver worth a pick in Round 5 or 6. The touchdowns should be better than his average prior to 2013, but don’t be surprised if he falls below 1,000 yards and has fewer than 60 catches with this move to Washington.
