The Redskins expect WR DeSean Jackson (leg) to play against the Giants today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  D-Jax put in 3 limited practices this week and won't be at 100% today.  That leaves him as a risk/reward WR3.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He put in 3 limited practices this week, and HC Jay Gruden said Friday that D-Jax is “50-50” to play. We’ll find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday. But at less than 100%, Jackson will be a risky WR3 if he ends up active.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) remained limited in Thursday's practice.  He said afterward that he's making progress but still isn't "fully healed."  We're better on D-Jax playing against the Giants this weekend, but he won't be at 100%.  That'll make him a shaky WR3 in fantasy football.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is inactive. That leaves Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts as Washington's top 2 WRs. They’re both low-end WR3s against a red-hot Rams defense.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams. He didn’t practice all week, and we’d bet against him playing. Even if he does, it’d be at less than 100% against a red-hot defense. D-Jax is best off on fantasy benches this week.  If Jackson is inactive on Sunday, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts would be Washington's top 2 WRs.  They'd be low-end WR3s in fantasy football.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday.  At this point, we'd bet against him playing against the Rams this weekend -- and he'd be tough to trust in fantasy lineups even if he does.  If D-Jax sits out, Andre Roberts would start alongside Pierre Garcon.  They'd both be low-end WR3s.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) did not practice on Wednesday.  Insider Tarik El-Bashir noticed D-Jax "limping a bit" on the sidelines.  Consider him no better than 50-50 to suit up against the Rams this weekend.  We'll have another update tomorrow.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden didn't offer much of an update on WR DeSean Jackson's leg injury on Monday.  Jackson will be "ok with time," Gruden said, but it's unclear "how long it will be."  We might have to wait until Wednesday's practice before we get another update, but it's clear that D-Jax is not a lock to be ready for this weekend's game against the Rams.

Washington WR DeSean Jackson suffered a bruised right fibula in Sunday's loss at Indianapolis, according to The Washington Post. Jackson initially got hurt on a cheap shot by Colts S Mike Adams after a reception at the sideline but returned only to aggravate it. Jackson got carted in for X-rays, finished the game on the sideline and then reportedly limped as he left the stadium. He said after the game that he was in "constant pain." We'll obviously watch his status this week, but the diminutive receiver sounds pretty iffy for Week 14 at this point. His absence would open up opportunities for WR Andre Roberts, though you shouldn't go chasing him on your waiver wire.

Washington WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active for tonight’s matchup with the Giants. Jackson’s not close to 100%, but he’ll tough it out against the divisional foe. The 27-year-old belongs in fantasy lineups as an upside WR2.

The Redskins listed WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Giants.  He played 62 snaps last weekend, avoided a setback and put in 3 limited practices this week.  The short week doesn't help his cause, but he's fully expected to play tomorrow night.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. HC Jay Gruden suggested on Friday that Jackson’s snaps will be limited. That, plus the chance of re-injury, makes him an extremely risky WR3.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden admitted that WR DeSean Jackson's snaps will be limited if he plays against the Eagles on Sunday.  "He won't get 80 plays," Gruden said. "May get 20-30."  That's not enough to make D-Jax a quality fantasy play.  He should be on benches for Week 3.  WRs Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant should pick up extra snaps on Sunday, but look for WR Pierre Garcon and TE Niles Paul to lead the way in targets.
