|Jackson's return to Philadelphia could not have turned out better for the 13-year veteran. Eight catches for 154 yards and a couple of scores in a 32-27 win over the Redskins. Eagles fans were on cloud nine and fantasy owners who used a late-round pick on him thought they had the steal of the draft. Unfortunately, Jackson caught just one more pass for five yards as injuries derailed his season.
The Eagles used their first-round pick on Jalen Reagor to presumably learn and eventually replace Jackson as the deep threat for Carson Wentz. Until that happens, and if Jackson can stay healthy - something he has not done since 2016 - Jackson could be a massive value late in drafts.
Fellow veteran Alshon Jeffery is likely going to miss the start of the season due to a Lisfranc injury suffered against the Giants in Week 17 of 2019. JJ Arcega-Whiteside was somewhat of a disappointment in his rookie season, and Reagor is a rookie who will have a limited offseason due to COVID-19. Wentz will look to lean on his trusted weapons, and Jackson and his tight end duo will be heavily utilized in 2020.
| High ankle sprain for DeSean Jackson|
Injury bug bites Jackson again

FFToday's Take: It's going to be a lost season for Jackson who just couldn't stay healthy, dealing with hamstring and ankle injuries. He's likely to miss a few weeks making it difficult for fantasy owner to keep him on the roster. The Eagles are still carrying Alshon Jeffery on the active roster despite not playing.

FFToday's Take: Jackson last played in Week 3 against the Bengals and has 10 catches on the year. He'll be a welcome addition for the Eagles depleted receiving corps but will be a risky play fantasy owners in Week 7. The wait continues for Alshon Jeffery.
