|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 active for TNF -- Thu Sep 25 6:45 pm --|
No setbacks with shoulder sprain
|Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson will play against the New York Giants Thursday as expected. Jackson is still dealing with a Grade 1 AC joint sprain that he got in Week 2 against the Jaguars. Jackson was limited for the second straight week in practice and was listed as questionable on yesterday's injury report.
FF Today's Take: Jackson, who gutted the Eagles for five catches, 117 yards and a score, did not appear to suffer a setback during the game, so he was going to be a good bet for Week 4 despite the short week. Former Eagle Damaris Johnson - now with the Houston Texans - burned the Giants for a deep score last week, so it isn't unthinkable that Jackson does as well.
| Jordan Reed out, DeSean Jackson questionable -- Fri Sep 19 11:45 am --|
Niles Paul on the TE1 radar
|Wide receiver DeSean Jackson took part in some individual drills during Fridayís practice and will be listed as questionable for the Washington Redskinsí game on Sunday at Philadelphia. Tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: A converted wide receiver, Niles Paul torched the Jaguars in Week 2 to the tune of 8 catches, 99 yards and 1 TD. If DeSean Jackson is limited or sits on Sunday, Paul would become the No.2 receiving option for Kirk Cousins. Jackson will test his shoulder in pregame warmups and be a gametime decision.
| DeSean Jackson misses practice, expects to play -- Wed Sep 17 1:00 pm --|
|DeSean Jackson on Wednesday did some work on a side field while his teammates practiced and then watched other portions of that session. Gruden speculated that the team wouldnít know until Thursday or Friday if the wide receiver would play on Sunday. "Itís going to be a huge game for myself and Iíve looked forward to ever since everything went down the way it went down." (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Jackson injured his shoulder last week and will do everything in his power to get on the field this week against his former team. Updates on D-Jax's practice participation coming later in the week.
| DeSean Jackson leaves practice early -- Wed Aug 6 2:45 pm --|
Could miss preseason opener
|RICHMOND ó Early in Wednesday morningís walkthrough, the horde of fans lining the practice field let out a collective groan.
Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson swatted down a pass in his direction, hobbling off the field while favoring his left ankle. Jackson later walked off the field with his ankle wrapped in white tape, watched part of practice from the trainersí table and did not return.
FF Today's Take: Head Coach Jay Gruden said Jackson's availability for Thursday night will depend on how his treatment goes. By most accounts it doesn't look like this is a major cause for concern to fantasy owners. Nevertheless, Washington may want to play it safe considering fellow wideout Pierre Garcon (hamstring) has already been ruled out.
|Jordan Reed impressive in scrimmage vs. Pats -- Mon Aug 4 4:30 pm --|
Pats reporter believes TE is in line for big season
|Jordan Reed looks like a star. He was open all practice, and hauled in a really nice catch over the out-stretched arms of Darrelle Revis and Devin McCourty along the sideline. Reed is in line for a big season, especially with the Redskins having so many weapons at receiver (DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts). (Boston Globe)|
FF Today's Take: Reed has suffered four concussions dating back to college and it is that injury history that appears to be his biggest obstacle en route to becoming an elite fantasy tight end. While he can't be expected to maintain the 90-catch pace he had in eight games last season with a much less talented receiving corps, he figures to compete with Garcon to be the team's leader in touchdown catches.
