QB situation still harming Washington's wide receivers
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) Though the Redskins got a solid performance out of Robert Griffin III in Week 15, their two main wide receivers, Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson didn't benefit.
Jackson, who made his return from a shin injury Sunday, had just three receptions for 15 yards, despite being targeted eight times. He led the team in targets, one ahead of Garcon, who had just four catches of his own for 36 yards. That coming off a nine-catch, 95-yard showing last week.
Both players have shown the ability to be productive, but the inconsistent quarterback play has hurt them this season. Whether Griffin or Colt McCoy gets the starting nod in Week 16, neither player should be viewed as more than a low-end starting option against the Eagles, though both players had 100-plus yards and a touchdown in a prior meeting.

12/26/2014 13:47 Weekly Lineup Winners for Week 17
Is it safe to start Patriots, Colts and Cowboys in Week 17? Our Dave Richard keeps the NFL playoffs in mind when setting his Weekly Lineup Winners.
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.
