09/15/2014 09:40 Week 2 Fantasy Rewind
The second week of the season sure offered owners some bad news in the form of major injuries. Our Dave Richard shares his initial observations from a busy Sunday of action.
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.
