2013 Outlook
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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Redskins, DeSean Jackson agree     -- Tue Apr 1 11:15 pm --

Three-year deal
Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has agreed with the Washington Redskins. Jackson will join Washington on a three-year deal, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The Redskins will pair him with a first-time head coach in Jay Gruden. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: With Jackson and Andre Roberts in the mix, the biggest fantasy winner has to be Robert Griffin III who now has legitimate play-makers at all three receiver spots and one of the best young receiving tight ends in Jordan Reed. With Pierre Garcon on the opposite side, Jackson will be hard-pressed to duplicate his WR1 stats from a year ago (82 rec, 1332 yds, 9 TDs). Both players see their fantasy value deflate a little with this acquisition.
Redskins set to host DJax on Monday     -- Sun Mar 30 9:00 pm --

May not be willing to "break the bank"
Despite being in full agreement in the decision to pursue former Philadelphia Eagle DeSean Jackson, Washington Redskins officials may not be willing to award the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver a highly lucrative contract, according to people with knowledge of the situation. Washington will host Jackson on Monday evening and Tuesday, according to multiple sources. (Washington Post)

FF Today's Take: The Raiders and Bills seem to be other front-runners for the former Eagle right now. Both of those teams have more cap room and in theory could offer a bigger front-loaded contract. The Chiefs and Jets have reportedly backed off their pursuit of the star receiver.
DeSean Jackson released by Eagles     -- Fri Mar 28 12:40 pm --

Eagles unable to find a trade partner
After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson. The team informed him of his release today. (Philadelphia Eagles via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: We knew this was a possibility and now it's come true. The Eagles released their top receiver from 2013 just two years after signing a five-year contract extension. He was set to make $10.5 million this season. Jackson is in the prime of his career and despite his attitude and off-field concerns, will likely have a few teams (Jets, Raiders, Chiefs, 49ers, etc.) considering his services.
DJax staying in Philadelphia?     -- Tue Mar 25 11:56 am --

Receiver telling teammates he's staying
In the latest twist of As DeSean Jackson Turns, the wide receiver called a few teammates on Tuesday morning to tell them he was staying with the Eagles a day after he spoke with coach Chip Kelly, a source close to the situation told The Inquirer. Last week, three NFL sources told The Inquirer that the Eagles were actively shopping the Pro Bowl receiver. There were also reports that the New York Jets, Raiders, Panthers, 49ers and Seahawks had expressed some interest in Jackson. (Philadelphia Inquirer)

FF Today's Take: Head coach Chip Kelly is scheduled to speak with the media on Wednesday and perhaps he'll shed some light on the situation. The Eagles reportedly wanted a third-round pick for Jackson but it doesn't appear there are any takers at that price along with Jackson's salary of over $10 million in 2014. More twists and turns on this story to come...
Eagles want 3rd-round pick for DJax     -- Tue Mar 18 6:00 pm --

49ers and Patriots have inquired
The Eagles might not be actively shopping DeSean Jackson but theyíre picking up the phone and listening to offers. The team has taken inquiries from the 49ers and Patriots, Gunn has learned from a league source, and notified the Pro Bowl wideout early last week that itís not shopping him but is listening to potential suitors. Also according to the source, the Eagles are seeking at least a third-round pick. (CSNPhilly.com)

FF Today's Take: Jackson had his best year as a pro in Chip Kelly's offense registering 82 catches, 1332 yards and 9 TDs and ranking 10th among fantasy wide receivers with 187.4 FPts. Jackson's me-first attitude might rub coach Kelly the wrong way but it also makes him difficult to deal... along with his contract. Jackson is owed $10.25 million in base salary in 2014.
