|DeSean got paid. The good news is that we wonít have to read and hear about how DeSean wants to get paid. The bad news is his high fantasy risk factor just went through the roof. Heck, high character players generally see a decline in production after getting their first big contract. Considering Jacksonís refusal to go over the middle last season as well as his alligator arms routine when forced to make a catch in traffic, getting his first big deal could put an even bigger damper on his production than his pouting, me first attitude did in 2011. The guy is extremely talented and might just be the best big play threat in the league next to Calvin Johnson but he has been a one trick pony for most of his career and there arenít many reasons to expect that to change in 2012. Another 1,000 yards and six or seven touchdowns seems likely but a repeat of his 4th ranked fantasy wide receiver performance in 2009 is a pipe dream. Somebody is going to buy the dream. Donít let it be you.
| DeSean Jackson out for Week 4 -- Fri Oct 2 7:30 am --|
|Redskins source tells me DeSean Jackson is out Sunday and possibly longer. Said "not even close." (Britt McHenry on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Jackson will miss his grudge game against the Eagles leaving Pierre Garcon and TE Jordan Reed to be the top targets in the passing game for Kirk Cousins. Garcon is a WR3 consideration while Reed is a mid-range TE1.
| DeSean Jackson "day to day", hamstring injury -- Wed Sep 30 12:13 pm --|
Misses practice Wednesday
|Gruden says WR DeSean Jackson is "day to day" with a hamstring injury. He did not take part in practice today. (Redskins on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Jackson would certainly like to play against his former team but needs to get in at least limited practices this week to have a chance. Jackson suffered his hamstring injury in Week 1.
| DeSean Jackson expected to miss 3-4 weeks -- Mon Sep 14 12:23 pm --|
|Redskins WR DeSean Jackson expected to miss three to four weeks with strained hamstring, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Jackson posted a goose-egg in Week 1 after leaving early in the first quarter with a hamstring injury. In his absence, expect Pierre Garcon and TE Jordan Reed to be the top targets for Kirk Cousins. Reed posted a 7-63-1 line on 11 targets in Week 1.
| D-Jax out 1-2 weeks with shoulder injury -- Thu Aug 6 4:30 pm --|
AC joint sprain

FF Today's Take: It's not a major setback for Jackson, but might cause him to lose some preseason-game bonding time with Robert Griffin III. HC Jay Gruden wants a more balanced offense in 2015 and has already made getting Pierre Garcon more involved a priority, so owners should not expect his numbers to improve from 2014 (56 catches, 1,169 yards and six touchdowns). In short, he should be a hit-or-miss WR2 for fantasy purposes again.
