|DeSean got paid. The good news is that we won’t 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 Jackson’s 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 aren’t 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. Don’t let it be you.

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.
|Garcon to become top target in Washington? -- Thu Jun 4 4:15 pm --|
Switched roles with DeSean Jackson in practice Thursday
|Pierre Garcon appears to have switched wide receiver positions and spent the bulk of the day playing the ‘Z’ rather than the ‘X.’ He used to line up on the left, and now is split out to the right. Coaches plan to make a greater point of getting Garcon the ball, and this is part of the plan. DeSean Jackson lined up at the ‘X’ today. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: This could be little more than offsesaon tinkering, but is noteworthy when combined with the news of the Redskins' wishes to get Garcon more involved. Jackson played the same 'Z' role A.J. Green was used in while Gruden was in Cincinnati, so the fantasy ramifications of a permanent switch could be substantial for both players. At the very least, it is a situation fantasy owners need to keep an eye on throughout the summer.
