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 predictably inconsistent
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(10/7/14) If you expected Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson to do what he did in Week 5 (against the Seahawks, of all teams) after contributing just a 9-yard catch Week 4 against the Giants, raise your hand.
If you raised yours, you're a liar and a fraud and a meanie.
And a genius. You know the deal with Jackson by now. Seven years in, the rest of us are still learning, but you know he's at his best when you least expect it. If he has that play or two where he breaks free and does what he does in open space, his numbers are through the roof, but if he doesn't, not so much.
The only way to ensure you get the best of what he offers, then, is to start him every week, regardless of the matchups, taking the 9-yard games with the 199-yard games.
Don't like it? Trade him. Now's a good time considering he just had his best game of the season against the last defense anyone would have expected. If you hesitate because you're worried he'll start to do this sort of thing every week, well then you're not quite the genius I thought you were.
DeSean Jackson goes off for 157 yards on MNF
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(10/7/14) Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson burned the Seahawks' vaunted secondary for 157 yards Monday night, including a 60-yard touchdown and a 57-yard reception. Jackson caught five of his game-high 11 targets as he put up the most receiving yards against Seattle since Chicago's Brandon Marshall had 10 grabs for 165 yards in an overtime loss Dec. 2, 2012.
Jackson's touchdown, which came after quarterback Kirk Cousins escaped the pocket, was his 19th career score of at least 50 yards. Jackson leads the NFL in that category since he entered the league in 2008.
Off his second 100-yard game this season, he'll visit the Cardinals in Week 6.
|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.
