FF Today's Take: Jackson got in some limited work in practice this week and is listed as questionable making him a risky start but a player with upside against the Patriots. Jackson hasn't played since Week 1 due to a hamstring injury.

FF Today's Take: Jackson suffered a setback in practice last week and hasn't seen the field since Week 1. Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder will continue to be the top wideouts for Kirk Cousins.
| DeSean Jackson has setback with hamstring -- Thu Oct 15 5:40 pm --|
Team hopeful he will play in Week 6
|Things were moving in the right direction for WR DeSean Jackson to return to action against the Jets this week, but Thursday’s practice may have thrown a wrench in the works.
Redskins HC Jay Gruden said, via Liz Clarke of the Washington Post, that Jackson was pulled out of Thursday’s session after feeling a “twinge” in his injured hamstring while trying to run down a deep pass. Jackson hurt the hamstring in the season opener in a similar fashion and has missed the last four weeks while recovering. (Pro Football Talk)|
FF Today's Take: Gruden is hopeful about Jackson being available to face the Jets, but Thursday’s setback suggests he'll probably limited even if he suits up. In the likely event he sits, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder can be viewed as low-end WR3s based solely on the amount of targets they are likely to see, even in a difficult matchup.
| DeSean Jackson limited on Thursday -- Thu Oct 8 12:05 pm --|
|The Redskins could receive some key reinforcements on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson and cornerback DeAngelo Hall were both out on the field during Thursday’s practice. Jackson and Hall both participated during individual drills. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Jackson is was limited on Wednesday as well as and is still very questionable to play this week. Jamison Crowder (7-65) was used over Andre Roberts last week against the Eagles and could see increased snaps this week if Jackson is out.

Limited in practice, returning from hamstring injury
|DeSean Jackson declared himself pain-free after his first, limited practice Wednesday since straining a hamstring Sept. 13 and didn’t rule out the possibility that he might play Sunday at Atlanta.
Asked if he was optimistic about suiting up Sunday, Jackson said: “Trying to be. But it’s Wednesday. I got two more days to really be able to determine that. I think tomorrow will be a good day to find that out, and Friday will be another good day.
FF Today's Take: If Desean Jackson can find his way back to the field it would give the Redskins a huge lift on a passing offense that has only average 243 passing yards per game over the first month of the season. If Jackson is cleared to play he would be worth WR3/flex consideration for Week 5.

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.

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.

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.
